He tilts my chin up so my eyes meet his, his thumb brushing lightly across my lips. I close my eyes. I know Z is trouble. I know that being with him is going to get me into trouble. I don’t care.
At least at this moment, I don’t care.
Tossed from foster home to foster home, Olivia’s seen a lot in her sixteen years. She’s hardened, sure, though mostly just wants to fly under the radar until graduation. But her natural ability with computers catches the eye of Z, a mysterious guy at her new school. Soon, Z has brought Liv into his team of hacker elite—break into a few bank accounts, and voila, he drives a motorcycle. Follow his lead, and Olivia might even be able to escape from her oppressive foster parents. As Olivia and Z grow closer, though, so does the watchful eye of Bill Sykes, Z’s boss. And he’s got bigger plans for Liv…
I can picture Liv’s face: wide-eyed, trusting. Her smooth lips that taste like strawberry Fanta.
It was just a kiss. That’s all. She’s just like any other girl.
Except that she’s not.
Thanks to Z, Olivia’s about to get twisted. (Goodreads)
Okay, so some of you who have been following my reviews here probably know that I'm not generally the type to go for the bad guy in a book. Um, Z would definitely be the one to change that :) That may be a random way to start this review, but I seriously loved this book. Olivia was sweet and strong and I really felt for her from the very start. And the whole story was so well tied together that I just couldn't put it down. The relationship between Liv and Z was lots of fun, but the rest of the story drew me in--who doesn't like a little hacking and crazy guys controlling the lives of a host of amazing computer whizzes? Anyhow, I'm not doing this book justice, bottom line is that I highly recommend this one. It was a blast to read and I loved it!
Have you heard of this title? Or read Oliver Twist? :)
