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.

Doesn't it sound awesome?! Well, it is. I fell in love with the concept from the first time I heard it. The idea of Oliver Twist with hackers instead of pickpockets? SOLD. Throw in a gender twist on the main character, and I'm in heaven.

Liv's voice is captivating from the start. And Z is intriguing as well as HOT. :) I LOVED the chemistry between them.

I wasn't sold on the Oliver Twist quotes at the beginning of each chapter, but other than that, I have no complaints. This is an excellent book, and I highly recommend it!
