Release Blitz: Code Name: Hacker by Sawyer Bennett

Code Name: Hacker (Jameson Force Security, Book #4)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: March 31, 2020

I’m not the same Bebe Grimshaw I was years ago. The woman I was spent years behind the bars of the highest security women’s prison in the nation, my punishment for hacking nuclear codes as part of a crime syndicate I’d gotten in way too deep with. The woman I am today doesn’t regret what I did, or the fact that I got caught, but I am remorseful for the years I lost with my son, Aaron. Released from my sentence early thanks to Kynan McGrath, I joined his team at Jameson Force Security and now put my skills to use helping people.

I’m just trying to get back a piece of what I lost, focusing solely on raising Aaron and my work at Jameson. As long as I have my son and my career, I’m content. But life has a funny way of letting you know exactly what you need, and when a devastatingly handsome stranger named Griffin befriends Aaron at the park, I have to consider I might be missing something. A part of me that was locked away long ago reawakens, and I find myself looking at Griff in a way I’ve not looked at a man in more than a decade.

Just when I think things are starting to look up, my world is turned upside down. Turns out that meeting wasn’t an accident, and things aren’t going my way at all.

Griffin Moore is the man sent here to kill me.

Review by Trinette Dungee

Bebe made some bad decisions when she was down on her luck. She had a young son and a sick mom to take care of. The decision she made to make some extra cash cost her everything and to save her country she made the ultimate sacrifice. When Kynan McGrath enters her life, he presents her with the opportunity of a lifetime that sounds too good to be true. Now, Bebe is a free woman helping those in need, living with her son and her mother. She’s content with her life until a stranger enters and starts her thinking she might be missing out on one thing in her life. When Griffin enters her life Bebe tries to resist him, but she’s immediately smitten. Unfortunately, Bebe learns that sometimes “too good to be true” is very accurate. 

Griffin has been hired to eliminate Bebe Grimshaw, the man who hired him wants her gone like yesterday. Griffin devises a plan to get close to Bebe but soon finds that eliminating her isn’t something he wants to do. He’s attraction to Bebe and her family is giving him a glimpse of a life he didn’t think have. When he makes the bold decision to reveal his true self to Bebe he has to accept that he may have just signed his death warrant.

Finally, we are getting to Bebe’s story, I’ve been intrigued by her from the start. Aside from being the only female on on the team, she’s a single mom. I love the single parent trope so couldn’t wait to dig in. 

The first introduction is Griff and let me tell you, I WAS NOT a fan. I didn’t like him or the way he was using, Aaron, Bebe’s son to get to her. But, at the same time, there was something so charming about him from the minute he approached Bebe…sigh.

Jameson group is hard at work with one project after another and the latest project that has fallen in their lap is protecting one of the own; savine Bebe’s life. After comes clean about why he is there the team comes together to take down the man who Bebe could send to prison for the rest of his life. 

All of the old characters are back including Dozer. Bebe can’t deny her attraction to Griff and her main confidant is Dozer. Dozer is pretty much a straight shooter. He encourages Bebe to take the chance on a relationship and challenges her to face what really frightens her.

But I’m scared. I mean, what if this doesn’t go anywhere? How do I even begin to explain my past to him? How do I build something with someone when I don’t even know if my past is going to catch up with me in a really horrible way?”

The relationship thing was new to both Bebe and Griff, but Griff didn’t hold back as much as Bebe. Then again, she had her son and mother to consider which made her more hesitant. Griff however seemed to jump in with both feet. What I liked about him was his straightforwardness. He was honest with everyone one involved, including Bebe’s mom and son. He was all in from the beginning and once he was on board with the relationship his loyalty to Bebe never faulted.

You want to know that this is, Bebe? He asks, but I hold still because of the low rhetoric rumble of his voice. “It’s fucking destiny. Our paths crossed, two people who were probably a billion-to-one odds of ever meeting, yet we were supposed to come into each other’s lives at the moment we did. I was supposed to be the one who was sent to find, you and it was supposed to be you that was meant to save, and together? Well, together the world is our fucking oyster is what I’m thinking We’re going to work together-take down the monster who destroyed your life and hurt so many other innocent people. We’re going to do it together. And while we’re at it, were, going to continue to get to know you. I don’t need this case to be over to take it to the next level with you, but if you want to take it slow, just know I’m not fucking going anywhere. So, we can move at a pace that’s good with you. Whatever we decide-we do it together, knowing were together for reason that defies all logic and reason, and I’m not letting this opportunity pass.” I just stare at him, think my ovaries combusted.

Girl, MINE TOO!!! OMG, I practically melted after that speech. I might have started off not liking Griff and gradually warming up to him, but after that, I was team Griff all the way. 

For everything that Bebe’s been through I was happy she was so eager (or as eager as she could be) to embark on this relationship with Griff. Until this book, it was very hard for me to put together a mental imagine of Bebe, finally I have my mental picture.

I’m not an angst girl so I love that angst is kept to a minimum in Sawyer’s books. One of my favorite things about her writing and this book is no different...the situation itself almost because a character…if that makes any sense. 

As always, the peripheral characters add to the storyline. There are old characters that show up and we see how they have progressed, there are characters who have a slight attraction to each other that could lead to something more, there are characters who live lifestyles that let you know when their time comes they are going to fall hard, there’re crossover moments from other series and most importantly, there’s info on the missing Malik that we can’t wait to get!!!!

Oh yeah and there’s always some steamy sex scene that makes you need to fan yourself.

Griff’s hand comes to my jaw and he leans over me, driving in deep. He pulls me up a bit, forces my face around to look at him for what I think might be a kiss. Instead, he just stares, our noses almost touching while he holds himself still inside me. “We need to figure this out,” he murmurs in a liquid tone. “Figured what out?” “How we keep this going after it’s all said and done,” he replies simply before leaning in and giving me a soft kiss.

I’m curious about the book cover. Considering Griff isn’t a part of Jameson and Bebe is and it’s basically her story…why his pic and not Bebe’s or at least one with both of them. That then got me thinking, has there ever been a book cover with a female?  Things that make you go Hmmmmmm.
