The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . WIRED (the Solomon Brothers, #1) . . . I just have one question who are the Solomon’s. I went through the whole book wondering who the Solomon Brothers were and here I am still wanting to know. That in no why hindered the enjoyment of this book. I loved getting to know the meaning behind wired. I loved the opening scene with Marcus stating his case and making that spectacular scene in the boardroom. This was something different for me and I liked it. Clare had a lot to prove and even more to overcome. She was a grieving woman with a brain. Her brain his brawn strength and determination helped her get her dream. This was a quick read that had depth and that little something different.
The narration of . . . WIRED (The Solomon Brothers, #1) . . . Rebecca Roberts did a good job with this one. The experience of Clare and Marcus in their own way. I was a bit thrown off by the Joe character and the slight contradiction on what I was hearing and sound. The sound quality was clean and clear of hiccups. Rebecca brought this book to life and allowed for a true almost real time feel of the action as it unfold. The quality of the recording allowed for the increase in speed without detracting from the basics of the narration.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Leslie North. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Star quarterback Marcus Kingston lives and breathes football. He’s trusted his abilities and instincts to get him this far, but an injury last season nearly ended his career. When his coaches want him to wear biofeedback technology to analyze his game, Marcus thinks the idea is ridiculous. Plus, the mousy scientist behind the project knows nothing about sports, and she quickly gets under his skin. But with another QB waiting on the sidelines, Marcus can either agree to participate, or be benched—permanently.
Scientist Clare Wynifred values intellect above most things. With her brain constantly working, she has little interest in her appearance and zero interest in sports. She never imagined her wearable tech being used to improve someone’s game, but its success with the team could get her a military contract. Clare may be too late to save her brother, but her technology could save the lives of countless soldiers. She just has to make it work with the stubborn quarterback, and she’ll be one step closer to her goal.
Marcus and Clare butt heads at first, but their mutual attraction quickly grows. And yet, with everything to lose, it’s easy to ignore that together they might be able to go the distance.
