Review ~ Heart-Shaped Hack (Kate and Ian, #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Heart-Shaped Hack (Kate and Ian, #1)
ebook purchased by myself.

Release Date: August 25th 2015

Publisher: Self-published

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.

My Opinion

I found this book via another blogger's review. It's rare for me to read reviews that win me over if I haven't found the book myself, but the excerpt shared hooked me. It sold the book as one with a great dynamic between the characters and I definitely got what I expected.

Heart-Shaped Hack was a brilliant read. I could say a lot, but I won't as there are some twists that are better experienced. The main thing I loved was the character. Ian was confident and cocky, but he was funny with it. I liked his playful, unashamed arrogance, but I also liked his tender side. He wasn't a typical alpha male, and his sense of humour made me laugh numerous times.

Similarly, I think Kate balanced his character well. She could match him in wit, but was also more grounded.

As for the story, it kept me hooked and I couldn't put it down. I did guess a lot of the twists, but it was the characters who kept me engaged with this read. Their banter just flowed.

Overall a great read. I've bought book 2 and would definitely recommend this.
