The Cover - Damn 💜 the cover is amazing and a perfect fit for the story
Ok so... Hard Wired is Jesse and Ian's book
We meet Ian & Jesse in Strong Signal (book 1).. they are admins / moderators on one of the leads, Kai's gaming channel
We got little snippets of them on Kai's computer but never actually met them in person, but they were great characters and I was really excited to read their book
Ok... so as I've said Ian & Jesse both work on Kai's channel, but they have never met in person
They are both attending a gaming convention on Kai's behalf, so it will be the first time they will meet... and wow what a meeting, damn I could feel the sexual chemistry coming off the pages
From that point on I was gripped, I couldn't put the book down... I was dying to find out how everything would turn out...
And the story did not disappoint... freaking amazing 💜
I absolutely loved Jesse & Ian
I loved reading how they both worked through personal problems and struggles, how they made each other a stronger person... I really felt like they are perfect for each other... they are soul mates
I loved that we got to see all the guys from books 1 and 2... I really love those guys
I 💜 Kai & Garrett 😍 (swoon)
I have read books by both authors, so when I found out they were doing a series together I was so excited... I just knew they would be awesome
Individually these authors are very talented and write amazing books, but together they are absolutely flawless... truly brilliant
I am hoping and praying there will be more to come from this series, I just don't want it to end
I would really love a book about Beau and Zane 💜 (fingers crossed)
and maybe even a book for Lyrix 😀
I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars... it is worth so much more
If you only read one book this year... it needs to be Hard Wired
Ok scrap that.... Just Read The Whole Series 😀💜
Jesse, our main character who is a surfer living in California realises he's not straight in this novel and I felt like it was dealt with really well. The little bits of discussion of sexuality being fluid and how it's ok to realise you're not straight later on in life were something I just enjoyed reading because so often it's just expected that once you're past adolescence you should know exactly who you are and what you're into, which is more often than not not the case.
Let me start with the good. The writing is stellar as always, the editing good (even for an ARC), the characters distinct, the sex hot, it's funny and I personally liked the easter eggs. Yep, all good. And honestly, the one big thing that bothered me might be me making a mountain out of a molehill, but it annoyed me. A lot.
(This might be a little spoilery, but it doesn't give the end away or anything.) One of the main characters' goals is to become an animator so that he can create his own art that brings attention to and increases the diversity in media. Yeah? It's a good goal. And I might have been able to look over how didactic some of it came across with the use of what I call hashtag terms (the ones you generally only see online or in book reviews talking about how authors have failed to include X or are guilty of shaming Y). Except that, well, both main characters are white. So are the parents, presumably the cousin/best friend, as it isn't stated otherwise, the adversary and both people who will obviously be the couple for the next book. Off hand, I can think of one person Ian spoke to that was described as having a bow in her afro and Garvy's co-worker was Filipino. That's it.
Of course, race isn't the only form of diversity and both characters are gay, they acknowledge the existence of bi-sexuality and one is neuro-atypical. But it still felt like an uncomfortable oversight. Perhaps someone will tell me I'm wrong or that it was actually meant to be illustrative, I don't know. But once I noticed it I couldn't not. The book was advocating diversity without including much obvious diversity itself.
And I almost didn't mention it here, because I know these authors (know being a loose term for follow them online and have exchanged a comment here or there, but it's enough that I have a general idea what to expect in their books) and I'm certain this is something that's important to them. But I have to admit that here I don't think they lived up to their best intentions. (And yes, I do see the irony of stating that I 'know' them, given that some of the drama in the book is based on fans thinking they know a whole person when all they really know is an online persona.)
Other than that one big issue, that kind of overshadowed the whole story for me, I generally liked the book. Yes, it was very angsty, I thought Garvy was a little too patient to be believed, the happy ending came a little too easily, and Ian's trauma and protective measures sometimes came across as disingenuous simply because he seemed a little too introspective about his own psychoses. It made it feel almost clinical, instead of devastatingly emotional. But these last critiques are small niggles that are almost meaningless in the face of other aspects I enjoyed. I'll definitely still be picking up the next book they write together and any books they write separately.
Note: I received an ARC for review purposes. The choice to read and review the book was my own and uninfluenced.
