** spoiler alert ** Meredith Wild has made a great sequel full of hot, steamy romance and fast, exciting thrills!
Hardpressed did not wow me as much as the Hardwired did, but this book was still great! I didn’t get bored and I didn’t feel the need to put the book down.
Blake Landon was mega hot in this book, yet again. He’s still quite the brute, but he fights for his girl. His intentions are in the right place, even if he comes off as a controlling character.
Erica, on the other hand, seems like quite the depressing heroine of this story. She seems to give up to easily, doesn’t ask for help and assumes a lot. She annoyed me a lot in this book, but it didn’t turn me away just yet. I’m hoping she’ll grow in the next book from this weird state she’s in.
Our villains were excellent – they were scary, threatening, and obviously the bad guys. If anything, I wish our bad guys would have had some more character. And by that I mean that the bad guys just seem to want to do bad things, their intentions aren’t in the right place. When you can understand a bad guy, and see why they are so bad, books can transcend!
The plot itself was quick moving, always had action, and involved lots of steamy romance! If anything, Meredith Wild has up-ed the sexiness factors of these books! I loved how Meredith Wild told this story, so I will definitely be picking up the next book.
Overall, it didn’t live up to the first book, but it came in a close second to it!
Four out of five stars!
