I will start this review off by saying that I didn't like Wire as much as its predecessor Craze, but it was still a very good book that was well written and filled with my favorite element–humor.
Evan and Paige were both great characters to follow. Like most romance MCs, they kicked off their inevitable romance with a nice period of avoidance due to a previous sexual encounter that didn't end so well. This only made the book more fun to read and I enjoyed watching them get over themselves and just go with it. I loved that Evan was the piner and not Paige. That was a nice change of pace. She wanted to act like they never hooked up and he was all for doing it again. And again and again. Most of the time the women are the ones that are longing for something more, and though Paige does have the hots for Evan, she has her own reasons for wanting nothing more to do with him. Her reasons suck if you ask me, but hey, whatever. Do your thing, Paige.
I really enjoyed the video game aspect of this book and how the crime was perpetrated using a video game to get people to commit murder. It was a well thought out plot and though I figured out the culprit way before the characters did, that didn't take away from me enjoying the book because there were details about the crimes that I couldn't have guessed if I tried. So that was a good thing. I also loved that Paige was the CEO of the gaming company and represented strong female characters that don't need some knight in shining armor to save the day. Maybe they could use a partner in crime, but they don't need a savior. Evan definitely came through for Paige in this book, but only because he was the expert she needed to get the job done right. We need more characters like Paige in romance books.
The other guys in Pierce Securities weren't as big a part of this book as they were in Craze, and I would have loved to see more of them. When they get together on the same page, it's nonstop laughs and I just love a book that can make me laugh. I'm really eager to read the next book in the series and get more of these men!
Definitely a thumbs up here. Wire is a fast read that gives you as much romance as suspense. You'll enjoy the plot and the characters and will be just as grabby hands as me for the next book when you're done. So yes, this book is most certainly worth a read!
