Series: Kate and Ian #2
POV: Dual, Third Person
Their love story began in Heart-Shaped Hack. Join Kate and Ian for the thrilling conclusion in White-Hot Hack.
When cybercriminals doxed undercover hacker Ian Bradshaw and forced him to flee, he begged Kate Watts for forgiveness and vowed never to hurt her again. He also convinced her to marry him, and when their idyllic summer on Roanoke Island comes to an end, the newlyweds relocate to their new home deep in the heart of Virginia’s horse and wine country. Ian still struggles with boundaries, but he keeps Kate’s lingerie drawer filled with surprises, and there’s no shortage of number-six kisses. There’s even a fast, new car to replace his beloved Shelby.
Ian promised Kate that life with him would never be boring, but spending her days picking out paint colors and going to Pilates isn’t going to cut it. Meanwhile, Ian discovers that building a white-hat security firm from the ground up seems harder the second time around, and he might have underestimated how much he’d miss the undercover work he walked away from. To make matters worse, the hacktivists are threatening national security, and the task force could really use Ian’s help.
Kate and Ian have always worried that their past would catch up to them, and when faced with the biggest showdown of their lives, they must capitalize on the one thing they excel at most: teamwork. Ian claims no one is a better hacker than him, but in order to triumph, he’ll have to prove it. And if he can’t, he risks losing the woman whose heart he worked so hard to hack.
This is the second and final book in the Kate and Ian series. The first book, Heart-Shaped Hack, can be read as a standalone.
We got to read Ian’s POV! YEESSS!
With book #2, both Ian and Kate teamed up as hackers. Well Ian’s the guys behind the computer and Kate’s the “Human hacker” or the author or Ian called it social engineer.
We all know that they got married at the end of book 1. They moved to Virginia, the wine country. Ian continued to spoil Kate. Her family kind of joked about being like The Real Housewife. She found out she’s good at cooking due to boredom.
In book 1, Ian decided to stop working with the FBI but in this book he missed it. So the ever lovable sweetness, Kate, persuaded Ian to go back working with them. She knew Ian craved it and loved his job.
“Love requires compromise. Maybe—in our case—it also requires bravery.”
This book got technical about hacking and etc so I skipped it. The story was more of an adventure rather than romance. There was a bit of romance but it wasn’t much compared to the first book. Mhhm, I’m guessing it’s because that’s just married life? HAHA idk.
There was a bit of suspense towards the end. Remember Zach? yeap. How dare he kidnaped a pregnant Kate?! NOPE! Ian went ballistic. He did everything to save his Katie and unborn child. IAN came to rescue by hacking the Porsche Spyder he gifted Kate. Love conquered all eh? That’s how much he loved his wife.
IAN I LOVE YOU. I DO. I REALLY REALLY DO! And Kate kept him on his toes and didn’t bow down to his will. They’re perfect together! Sigh*
“Sometimes I feel like there’s the two of us, and then there’s the rest of the world. Do you ever feel like that?
“All the time.”
and the epilogue with their little family 🙂 AND THEY FINALLY LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER
