Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup. The only thing she didn’t prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who seems determined to derail her presentation.
Billionaire and rumored hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he’s used to getting what he wants. Captivated by Erica’s drive and unassuming beauty, he’s wanted nothing more than to possess her since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if it means sacrificing a level of control he’s grown accustomed to.
But when Blake uncovers a dark secret from Erica’s past, he threatens not just her trust, but the life she’s fought so hard to create

About the Author
Meredith Wild picked up her first romance novel at the tender age of twelve, and shortly after put pen to word processor and made her first attempt at writing a love story inspired by those she so enjoyed reading well past her bedtime.
Her dream of writing took a back seat to college, parenthood and eventually entrepreneurship, which led her into the fast-paced and male-dominated high tech industry. With enough life experience for a few lifetimes, she now devotes her hours to writing contemporary adult romance, with a hint of kink.
Her debut novel Hardwired tells the story of billionaire bad boy, Blake Landon, and the object of his obsession, strong-willed tech startup CEO, Erica Hathaway. Hardwired will be the first of the Hardwired Series, while writing is underway for the second installment, Hardpressed.
When she isn’t writing or mothering, Meredith can be found sunbathing with an adult beverage.
Gotta love Blake he's a super hot billionaire.I thought this story was intriguing, flirty and hot. It fell a little flat in the middle but picked up again but it gets lost off and on. There's a lot going on in this book but not overwhelmingly so. Erica and Blake went from flirty and a one night stand to business meetings and living next to each other and being exclusive and hot sex. Eric learns a lot about life as she gets deeper into the business world and learns about who to trust and not trust and people are sometimes out for themselves. The secondary characters were needed in the beginning but then got a little lost. Interesting facts come to light with Erica and that kept me reading. I liked Erica and Blake as a couple and his alpha personality but only appeared sporadically. I would like to read more from Over all I thought it was a good story. 4 stars
