Review: Dirty Hacker by Tia Lewis

Dirty Hacker Dirty Hacker by Tia Lewis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a girl who doesn't mind getting her hands dirty. While it was really hard to not go out of my mind while reading Sophie's thoughts throughout this book, I really liked how realistic the authors made her character out to be. Sophie's 18 years old, on the brink of womanhood. She's been a loner up until now because she just didn't know how to fit in. She classifies herself as socially awkward. She's lost and confused about who she is and who she wants to be until she comes across The Alliance, which is a group of hackers run by the mysterious billionaire, Preston Phillips. So Sophie figures out that she is meant to be a hacker too. Preston offers to train her and during this they engage in a pseudo Dominant-Submissive relationship. There's a bit of subterfuge in the mix and under Preston's tutelage, Sophie learns a hard lesson and accepts some hard truths about herself.

I liked the concept of the story. It's not an oft-used plot and I found that quite refreshing. I was surprised by the age of the heroine, especially because of the subject matter covered in this story, but it worked for the most part. The entire book is in Sophie's POV and she comes across as immature, awkward, inconsiderate and selfish. But her intelligence was evident as well. I think she acted her age, especially for the stage she was at in her life. The biggest issue I had with this book was the sex scenes. They were erotic, hot and explosive, however, every time I remembered how young and inexperienced Sophie was in the circumstances, I cringed. It wasn't enough to take away from my overall enjoyment of the story, but it definitely lingered in the back of my mind. But that's just me.

I feel like this book ended a bit unfinished. Is this the start of a series?
