Meredith Wild picked up her first romance novel at the tender age of twelve, and shortly after put pen
to word processor and made her first attempt at writing a love story inspired by those she so enjoyed
reading well past her bedtime.
Her dream of writing took a back seat to college, parenthood and eventually entrepreneurship, which led
her into the fast-paced and male-dominated high tech industry. With enough life experience for a few
lifetimes, she now devotes her hours to writing contemporary adult romance, with a hint of kink.
Her debut novel Hardwired tells the story of billionaire bad boy, Blake Landon, and the object of his
obsession, strong-willed tech startup CEO, Erica Hathaway.
When she isn’t writing or mothering, Meredith can be found sunbathing with an adult beverage.

Omfg!! Those were my words after reading Hardpressed. I didn't think Hardwired could be topped, by Hardpressed is right up there with the first book in the Hacker Series.
Erica could be any one of us. Smart, sassy, independent, vulnerable, trusting, self sacrificing. Her willingness to let Blake in to every aspect of her life speaks volumes of her feelings toward him. Her inner struggle on whether to submit fully to his domineering ways is played out well and doesn't take away from the trust she has in Blake. She wants to remain her own person and the thought of full submission is scary. She is also wrestling her own personal monsters of the past that just keep creeping in to her life and don't seem to want to let go.
Blake is just a million shades of sexy, no matter how you cut it. He makes nerds look good! Naturally domineering, he wants nothing more for Erica to trust him fully. On the other hand, he doesn't want her to do anything she doesn't want to. He loves her. He wants to protect her. He will never leave her side, no matter what happens and will go to any lengths at all to make sure she is safe.
Blake and Erica not only make things work out of the bedroom, they connect in ways neither one of them ever experienced in the bedroom. Erica's past seems to always be a barrier between the couple as she pushes herself to forget. If only it would stay buried forever.
The supporting characters are the right balance for the couple. Her best friend and Blake's brother are fantastic and they give you hope. The unrequited love of a coworker has you feeling sorry for the poor guy, but at the same time, makes you want to slap him(girl logic, only girls would understand).
A demented father and sadistic step brother bring the drama full tilt and plunge our couple in to the biggest test of their relationship so far.
Erica shines in Hardpressed and I know, I for one, want to take the girl for a drink! And I won't mention the things I want to do to Blake ;)
I'm so glad their story isn't over yet and cannot wait to see what else they get themselves in to. Will Erica let Blake take over everything? Will Blake lose some of the control he craves so much? Looks like we're going to have to wait for Hardline to find out!
Raise a glass to the wonderful Meredith Wild! You tell an awesome story lady! Cheers!!
