Mia Rollins has a problem.
A ten million dollar problem.
There’s a bounty on her head and some really shady people are hoping for a big payout when they find her.
The only problem is she has no idea who wants her, or why.
So she enlists the help of the one person in this world who can help her: Diego Medina, journalist wunderkind and notorious playboy. And when he chooses to ignore her pleas for help, Mia resorts to … a more creative Plan B. After all, desperate times call for desperate measures, right?
But the one thing Mia didn’t realize is that by hacking her way into Diego’s life, she also may have hacked her way into his heart.
Mia was quite the female lead. She has been through hell and back, in turn that has made her such a strong character. The way she drew Diego into helping her was quite clever. Boy did she know how to keep him on his toes. She gave the playboy a run for his money and it was quite entertaining. I didn't really connect with Diego. The playboy reporter tended to get more on my nerves than anything else.That being said his character arc went a little fast for me, therefore it didn't feel believable. I would have liked his evolution to have slowed down a bit that way the change felt authentic and not just to get into Mia's pants.
Mia and Diego did have an undeniable attraction and the heat was there for sure. If you are wanting some good steamy moments you will definitely enjoy the ones between these two. That being said, their connection felt more lust than love.
The plot of the story was interesting. Girl hiding from her past needs playboy reporter to help her escape from her past. There was a little mystery and some twists and turns here and there that keep you on your toes.
Interesting premise. Hacked Hearts was a decent story. The idea behind the story was great, but it didn’t quite hit its mark for me personally. I did like the characters and overall story. There was heat, mystery, and a few twists and turns. At times though the storyline felt a little predictable. The pacing was a little too fast for my liking. I think if it would have been slowed down a bit it could have added to the mystery of the plot line. Overall, the writing was done well and it was a decent read. It's not my favorite book ever, but I would be interested in reading more from Jade Webb.
Rating: 3 stars
Give me an alpha male with a woman who aces all forms of sarcasm and I'm putty in you hands -- bonus points if a Reverse Harem is involved. Supernatural esque romance and power plays tend to make my heart go pitter patter. I haven't met a book I wasn't willing to try, so if you've got recommendations email them my way. I'm a foul mouthed makeup addict with slight wino tendencies.
