My FallenCon agenda is simple: sit on a couple of panels and let people meet the real me. Jesse Garvy—mod of a famous Twitch channel and, if I ever come out of my shell, future vlogger. I definitely didn’t plan to sleep with a moody tattooed fan-artist, but he’s gorgeous and can’t keep his hands off me. There's a first time for everything, and my first time with a guy turns out to be the hottest experience of my life. But the next day, I find out my moody fan-artist is Ian Larsen AKA Cherry—someone I've known online for years. And he'd known exactly who I was while shoving me up against that wall. Before I figure out whether to be pissed or flattered, the con ends. Now we're back online, and he's acting like nothing happened. But despite the distance between us, and the way he clings to the safety of his online persona, we made a real connection that night. I don't plan to let him forget.

Some stories you know you'll love from the minute you pick the book up and read the first sentence. Hard Wire was one of those books for me. Megan and Santino pulled me into Jesse and Ian's world from word one and held me captive until I closed the book.
I loved the story and the characters. I loved watching them grow and learn to accept, support and love one another. My heart broke for Ian, but I was torn between wanting to cuddle him and slap some sense into him. I wanted him to open his eyes and see the amazing guy he was hiding his true self from. When you've been wearing a mask for so long, sometimes you have no clue who the real you is anymore. I loved discovering who Ian really was as his layers of armor slowly fell away. I was so proud of Jesse for finally standing up for himself!
This was an amazing read. The collaboration is seamless and I couldn't tell where one author's writing ended and the other's began. The story is well-written and flowed well. It's filled with lovable characters you can't help but root for. The chemistry between Jesse and Ian was phenomenal and the sex was off the charts HOT!! The authors take you on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the story ranging from fear and sadness to laughter and love. I enjoyed getting to see Kai and Garrett again. I absolutely loved this story and I can't wait to see what these authors have in store for us next. #IWantBeau!!! Highly recommended!!!
