Hello and welcome!
I just finished this gem from one of my fave authors, Leslie North.
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.

Wired is book 1 in the Solomon Brothers series.
The series is narrated by Rebecca Roberts who I will be adding to my voice-discovery list.
My review for WIRED: 5 stars
Short but packs a punch, this story is very much enjoyable. The main characters are complex and the listener gets a slow reveal of their depth. They gain so much by meeting in the middle even though it takes them a bit of convincing. Although each has baggage and there is conflict, I like that the author didn’t drag it out. The ending brought a happy feeling. Looking forward to the next books in the series. – 5 stars
My first listen from Ms. Roberts, and it will not be the last. Loved her voice, the variations, great male voices and accents. My fave was the one she gave Marcus. – 5 stars
Until next time… read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
