When Kate Watts abandoned her law career to open a food pantry in Northeast Minneapolis, she never dreamed it would be this difficult. Facing the heartbreaking prospect of turning hungry people away, she is grateful for the anonymous donations that begin appearing at the end of each month. Determined to identify and thank her secret benefactor, she launches a plan and catches Ian —a charismatic hacker with a Robin Hood complex—in the act.
Ian intrigues Kate in a way no man ever has. But after learning he’s snooped around on her personal computer, she demands retribution. Impressed with her tolerance and captivated by her spirit, he complies and begins to slowly charm his way past her defenses. Time spent with Ian is never boring, and Kate soon finds herself falling for the mysterious hacker.
But Ian has enemies and they’re growing restless. In the hacking world, exploiting a target’s weakness is paramount, and no price is too high to stop an attack. And when Kate learns exactly how much Ian has paid, she’ll discover just how strong her love is for the man who has hacked his way into her heart.
A fantastic and well written story!
Any book written by Tracey Garvis Graves is highly anticipated and rightly so. I've only read two books by her, even though I own them all and she hasn't let me down yet. I was really intrigued by the blurb because the word hacker has mostly a negative connotation to it and I was interested to see how it'd translate into a love story. I needn't have worried at all.
Kate is making a new life for herself. She's let go of her old life as a lawyer and decided to serve her community by operating a food bank in Minneapolis. I loved her for doing that. She was willing to take risks and follow her heart even if it means leaving everything safe behind. I loved how she never let Ian get away with anything. Even in the beginning when she was wary of him, she still managed to keep him on his toes. I loved Ian. Calling him a modern day Robin Hood is a fair call. He's got his own set of morals. I loved how he was cocky and confident but not arrogant. I loved how he wanted to help Kate and those who came to the pantry for help. I especially liked how he challenged Kate.
Ian and Kate had wonderful chemistry. It showed with every word and grew with every page. I loved how they were with one another. I almost felt like I was intruding in their romance, however I was very happy to experience their story. I was pleasantly surprised at how much hotter this book was compared to the other book by Tracey I'd read. It certainly suited Ian and Kate. I loved how Kate was with her family. I loved how they supported her through it all. I loved learning about Ian. He really truly did keep his secrets close to his chest. He also provided me with some food for thought. It wasn't just about his being a hacker, or learning about the kinds of hackers, but it was also learning about what happened when online security breaches occurred.
There were some very tender moments in this book and there were some light ones. I did shed some tears, but it was inevitable. Tracey writes with such passion and emotion it's impossible not to get caught up in the story. My attention was caught early on and it didn't wane until the book was finished. I wasn't prepared for some of the turns the story took. I don't think anyone could. I'm hoping to get more Ian and Kate in the future. While I'm satisfied with the ending of the book I just feel like there's so much more left to be told and done. I know I'm going to feeling the after effects of this book for a long time to come.
Heart shaped hack
Omg I love this book so touching
Couldn't put it down....
Heart Shaped Hack is another one of those books that has languished in my TBR and when I finally go in to read a page or two, it quickly becomes the whole book. This is the first book I have read by Tracey Garvis-Graves and it will not be the last.
This book is something - I loved every single thing about it.
Great plot. High quality banter. Off-the-freaking-charts-chemistry. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. All of it left me wanting more and more and more.
Don't be like me - grab this book and devour it TODAY!!
