MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

This was an exciting book.  It kept me on my toes especially at the end.

Christy Hadden is put on a team to search out a car theft ring.  She finds her self undercover as a High School(er), and is thrown right into the think of things.

There are some fabulous characters on her team and they seem to have quite a good relationship.  Most of the time.  When they were being casual with each other their banter was funny.  They knew how to have each others back when the time came.  They worked really well together.

Jeremy doesn't seem to be too keen on Christy going under cover.  Christy feels like she has displeased him some how.  Lets just say their relationship is not quite what a handler and agent should be ;),

There are a lot of twists and turns, and a lot of bad guys.  It is wonderful.  It made me sad that the bad guys were recruiting High School(ers), but it made for an exciting story.  The book was written really well, and I connected with all the characters.  Not just the MC's.  I love it when a book does that.  Some of those characters were shady and horrible people, but the author did a good job in making me feel how the MC's were feeling toward these individuals.

This was a fun, exciting, edge of your seat, intense, suspenseful books.  It just was so fun to read.  I hope you get a chance to pick it up and read it.  It was a great book.

MY RATING:

4 out of 5 hearts :)


WHERE TO BUY:



EXCERPT:


They nodded and giggled. Was I following the wrong girls? I wished I could consult Jeremy, but he’d never come back after the argument with Halluis. I had to go with the intel I had, and that was that the girls were involved with something tonight, something more than a dance. I’d just have to trust my gut and follow through with the plan. I’d figure out what to do about the dance when the time came. For now, I needed to plant the trackers.


I pretended to lose my balance on the train when it took a curve, and I plopped the flat locator bug onto Gina’s sleeve, then pressed a listening device on Karina’s collar. They both screamed and squealed, standing up and brushing themselves off as I stumbled away. Laron made his way over to them, so I hurried into the next car.


I sat in the train car next to theirs, body hunched over, earpiece in, listening to the two girls talk about how disgusting it was to get groped by some bum and lamenting the fact that they had to ride the subway at night to the school. That would suck. Most kids would find a ride in a taxi or with someone who owned a car, especially at an expensive school like Bell. I opened the GPS function on my watch and made sure that the locator I’d put on Gina was transmitting. A purple dot flashed hot on the screen. They were mine.

Praise for Hotwire 

 This book will take you on a crazy ride that you won't want to get off of to eat, sleep or anything else! ~Cathy Jeppson

 Hogan cleverly created characters with detail, who are both relatable and grounded. ~ the bookstalker It’s a thriller that reminded me of a mix between Gone in 60 Seconds and the Gallagher Girls books ~Canda Mortensen
