Zero Hour by Megan Erickson

The Fast and the Furious meets Mr. Robot in USA Today bestselling author Megan Erickson's thrilling new romantic suspense series.

Hacker extraordinaire Roarke Brennan lives each hour – each breath – to avenge his brother's murder. His first move: put together a team of the best coders he knows. They're all brilliant, specialized, and every one an epic pain in his ass. Only now Wren Lee wants in too, threatening to upset their delicate balance. The girl Roarke never allowed himself to want is all grown up with sexy confidence and a dark past... and she's the wild card he can't control.

Roarke might still think she's a kid, but Wren's been to hell and back. Nothing and nobody can stop her – especially the tatted-up, cocky-as-all-hell hacker. But when years of longing and chemistry collide, Wren and Roarke discover that revenge may be a dish best served blazing hot.

This was a great start to this series. You are given a lot of background about the group, but you don't really know many of the individual players – just them as a whole. I liked that because it allowed me to think of scenarios in my own head.

Roarke and Wren have been friends since they were kids. Wren's brother and Roarke and Roarke's brother all grew up together. Wren and Roarke have always had a thing for each other, but never acted on it.

When Roarke's brother is murdered trying to do the right thing, the team is assembled, revenge is on their minds. Their story is beautifully woven together and with each passing minute, you are given a little more information.

The romance is a back story, but one that makes doing their jobs somewhat difficult for Wren and Roarke. When they truly allow their feelings to come to light, they have great chemistry and the history to back up their passion.

I loved this story and despite some unanswered questions, I really enjoyed this story. I do hope that all of the crew get their own stories – they are a very interesting bunch.

This is an exciting and complex story about a group of grey hat hackers seeking revenge for the death of a brother and a friend. The group uses their many skills to destroy the father and son team who are responsible for murder, human trafficking, and illegal dealings on the dark web.

This first story focuses on Roarke, the leader of the group, who is grieving his brother. It is also the story of Wren, a woman who has crushed on Roarke from a distance since childhood. But she isn’t a child anymore and her skills and contacts make her an essential member of Roarke’s team.

Wren is the kind of woman I want to read about. She is fierce, skilled, and clever. I loved and admired her from the start and I had a serious girl crush by the end. It took me longer to warm to Roarke. He’s a darker character but he is a worthy partner for Wren.

I don’t know much of anything about hacking, cyber warfare, or dark web activity but I still really enjoyed this story about an eclectic group of kick ass warriors. I enjoyed the murky blurring of good/bad boundaries and I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Megan Erickson is a USA Today bestselling author of romance that sizzles. Her books have a touch of nerd, a dash of humor, and always have a happily ever after. A former journalist, she switched to fiction when she decided she liked writing her own endings better.

She lives in Pennsylvania with her very own nerdy husband and two kids. Although rather fun-sized, she’s been told she has a full-sized personality. When Megan isn’t writing, she’s either lounging with her two cats, named after John Hughes, characters or... thinking about writing.
