.Kellen Hockley usually keeps quiet about his past, but once upon a time he loved a girl named Angela. He hasn't seen her in a decade, but now he has to break the news to her that his team of rogue treasure hunters accidentally killed her husband. He's had better days...

It's not the news that's delivered to Angela Neko that breaks her apart--it's the rumbly, Texas drawl delivering it. She can't believe she's hearing Kellen's voice again. But there's no time for distractions. When Angela's own life is threatened, yielding up all of her lies and secrets, she and Kellen must figure out how to reverse the geopolitical firestorm she lit to save the world, to save Kellen's cat...and just maybe to save each other.

        

Wanted & Wired was the start of the Tether series, which might be in my paranormal romance category since the Perfect Gravity goes on to another couple, but it is also very science fiction. The world building is rather post-apocalyptic. The political environment with the governments keeps one guessing what will happen and provides a lot of twists in the plot. It seems whatever I think of a character, it twists around to something else.

Kellen and Angela get a second chance at love here. It’s emotional but rather uplifting and sexy. They are comfortable together and trusting, in spite of mistakes made when they were younger. This feels a bit romantic suspense with trying to figure out who the good guys are and the military of different groups being unpredictable.

We do see the first couple, Heron and Mari,  and their circle, which is a lovely support for the new story. I think you could read this as a standalone but I wouldn’t.  Wanted & Wired is very snarky and fun. It gets a bit more into the technology of this world which I especially liked. Plus I always prefer to read a series in order. I really enjoy these because they are so unique.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading. I LOVE books and what they give me. It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way. It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.
