Hacking IT is about a smart software developer named Kylie. It all begins when she notices that the lights in her office are not like they used to be. She talks to one of the other women at the office she shares and gets admin rights to the control panel and finds that there was a hacker in the system and tries to follow him to undo what was done. Of course, the chief security officer is then alerted that there was a hacker in the system, and believes that it was Kylie. Finally she is able to explain that she was just trying to HELP, not hurt and that maybe he should figure out a new staff to keep control of his IT stuff since they let a hacker in and mistook her for the hacker instead.
And this is a romance novel so of course, Luke and Kylie start a little relationship. Which complicates things a bit – but as they begin to realize that someone seems to be after Kylie, Luke ends up being her personal security as well. Luke has been looking into her background and thinks that he has discovered a BIG secret about her – but is it true? Well, you’re just going to have to read to find out…
My favorite quote from the book: “There was only so long a smart person could bang their head against a closed door before simply climbing a fence.”
I received a free e-copy of this book from the publisher in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Independent software developer Kylie Grant is on top of her game in the world of IT. She has loyal clients, a good reputation, and a prestigious membership in technology giant Afire Industries’ small business accelerator. Things are going well until she stumbles across an innocuous issue with the lighting in the building where she rents space. When she digs into the problem, she discovers something unexpected—a hack.
The incursion doesn’t affect her, but Kylie leaves enough clues to fix the problem. That earns her a visit from Luke McAllister, Afire’s chief security officer. Luke is handsome and rugged and everything that Kylie likes in a man, but she soon finds that he is blaming her for the security breach. Before long, the two are on a collision course, but also secretly looking at more than each other’s digital footprints.
When a fluke accident sends Kylie to the emergency room, Luke fears that the beautiful developer is in danger beyond the online world. Little does he know that she is also hiding a secret that threatens to jeopardize their now sizzling relationship.
Can Kylie fix Afire’s problems without falling victim to the hacker? And can Luke learn to trust her and keep her safe before their enemy strikes again?
