My FallenCon agenda is simple: sit on a couple of panels and let people meet the real me. Jesse Garvy—mod of a famous Twitch channel and, if I ever come out of my shell, future vlogger. I definitely didn’t plan to sleep with a moody tattooed fan-artist, but he’s gorgeous and can’t keep his hands off me. There’s a first time for everything, and my first time with a guy turns out to be the hottest experience of my life.
But the next day, I find out my moody fan-artist is Ian Larsen AKA Cherry—someone I’ve known online for years. And he’d known exactly who I was while shoving me up against that wall. Before I figure out whether to be pissed or flattered, the con ends.
Now we’re back online, and he’s acting like nothing happened. But despite the distance between us, and the way he clings to the safety of his online persona, we made a real connection that night. I don’t plan to let him forget.

I met Garvy and Cherrycakes way back in Strong Signal (Cyberlove #1) and was super excited to see they were getting book number three.
On Kai’s Twitch channel, Cherry was always the lover, not the fighter and for a bit I had even assumed that he might be female. ME/SH quickly put that notion to rest and unveiled him as Ian, the multi talented, multi personalitied mod/artist who is very much male and very, VERY into Jesse Garvy – Kai’s hard nosed mod who takes no crap on and off the computer.
Without throwing down spoilers for you other readers, I will 100% agree with my blog partner in that, while technically a standalone.. I definitely WOULD NOT recommend reading Hard Wired without at least reading Strong Signal (Cyberlove #1) first. There are just far too many connections and I am afraid you will miss out on a good deal of the story if you dont. That being said, I will also agree with her on the level of angst in this book. OH THE ANGST. It was quite gut wrenching at times, confusing at others. Definitely a different level of angst than Strong Signal.
Ive got to hand it to these two authors in one particular area, though. Whether skyping, texting or over the phone, they have got the heat level on the communications sexy times cranked up to SCALD! Whoa. Just whoa. That was intense! Loved it! Goodness… *fans self*
And the ending, oh yeah. *kisses fingers* So good it was.
To all you fans of gaming and the Cyberlove series, check out Garvy and Cherrycakes story. Its got a lot of angst, but also a lot of heart and a WHOLE lot of heat!

About the Authors
Megan Erickson is a USA Today bestselling author of romance that sizzles. Her books have a touch of nerd, a dash of humor, and always have a happily ever after. A former journalist, she switched to fiction when she decided she liked writing her own endings better.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her very own nerdy husband and two kids. Although rather fun-sized, she’s been told she has a full-sized personality. When Megan isn’t writing, she’s either lounging with her two cats named after John Hughes characters or… thinking about writing.
Santino Hassell was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.
Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.
