To save the only mother I’ve ever known, all I have to do is hack a tech billionaire.

My foster mother is sick. The woman who gave me a home, love, a life. I’ll do anything to find the money for her surgery, including using my skills as a hacker.

My name’s Remi, also known as Rogue Angel, and usually I work for a security company testing clients’ systems. But now a shadowy bad guy has tracked me down and given me an ultimatum.

I have to hack Rivera Tech—the biggest technology company in the world, owned by billionaire CEO, Maverick Rivera. If I do, I get paid and I can help my foster mother. If I don’t, my family is in danger.

Hacking Rivera is no walk in the park, and soon I find myself in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse with big, grumpy, and way-too-sexy Maverick. What I never, ever expected was for him to make me feel safe, or to threaten my closely-guarded heart, or to ignite every single part of me.

I can’t drag him into my mess.

But Maverick has other ideas, and he isn’t a man who takes no for an answer.

Will they give love a try if they come out alive…

Wow, just wow!
What an explosive way to close a series.
I thought the first two books were one hell of a nonstop action stories, this one matches them and what a fire work at the end.
I was glued to my book all afternoon, so eager to see how the mighty Rivera would fall. As one thing is sure with Hackett, the bigger and more jaded they are, the harder they fall.

Remi needs cash, big cash immediately which led her to accept the first job she is offered, she just did not know where she would step in. She knew Rivera was top of the top, but not which kind of project could attract such money. She thought her challenge would be to enter and steal what she had been tasked for. When it is more a dead or alive deal, if she can survive becoming a target.
Maverick made early his wealth, a wizard with technology. But it from the start attracted the wrong persons eager to taste a piece of the cake. It left him bitter about love, unable to trust a woman to have no agenda behind their interactions. So when the clever hacker who is defying him shows which prey she is after, he is furious to have been tempted by her sass.

Their relationship began on the wrong foot as they stand at each side of the law, until Remi’s conscience unable her to follow this path.
They were fun to watch together, Remi shaking up Mav’s certainties, blurring the lines, blowing his walls like a bull in a china shop. While Remi is determined to see their affair as only temporary, so sure there is no future between a foster kid hacker and a tech billionaire genius.
Yet when running for your life, sometimes priorities and beliefs change.

Anna Hackett I downloaded this on a whim - it was cheesy as hell and full of typical romance clichés. I’d type them out but then I’d be here for a while. Anna Hackett

This review may contain spoilers, so fair warning, upon reading the review.

Introduction
In Hacking Mr. Ceo, we get the conclusion to the Billionaire Heists trilogy, although from this one, I knew there would be connecting books in other series so keep in mind of that. This world is not over. The more I read this author, the more I fall in love with her writing style. It just immediately grabs me up and I love how easily she can do that. Also as a audiobook narration, this one was so well done and I can't believe that I have slept on her audiobooks because they are superb. So if you can get the narration, I highly recommend it. I adored this one though, this hero is the grumpy one out of the three friends, and I wanted his story the most and it actually might just be my favorite. What I also loved is that the relationship conflict stayed minimal, I liked how they communicated and worked through their issues fairly quickly. I really admire that in this author, she doesn't drag out stuff that doesn't need to be dragged out.

Summary
When Remi's foster mother, the one who took her in when no one else cared for her, ends up with cancer and the treatment is too expensive. So when she gets a offer for a hacking job that is a million dollars, she immediately accepts the offer, not realizing how challenging the job would be, the man behind the curtain or what dangers would be involved. But when Remi and Maverick clash, sparks will fly, tensions will rise and a passion will bind them in a way that they never expected. But when they realize the dangers, will them together with their friends be able to fight their enemy that hides in the dark...

My Outlook
I absolutely adored this book and its probably my favorite of the trilogy although I have enjoyed each of them in different ways. I really liked seeing our grumpy hero fall in love though. In the previous books we see how mistrustful he is of women especially and I just wanted him to get his story and see his side of it all. Anna Hackett did a brilliant job in conveying his journey. And I have to say she writes the best billionaires. They are so fun to read and definitely alpha males, so this one definitely checked off all my boxes. I adored the way in which these two interact with each other and they are both hacker nerds haha That was so fun seeing them really connect in that way. The suspense element that is introduced was thrilling and kept me on the edge of my seat and I just didn't want to put this book down. This author definitely knows how to penn a well done story that doesn't need to be full length to deliver a satisfying read to the reader.

Overall View
I found Hacking Mr. Ceo to be a truly endearing read that knocked my socks off and I can't wait to explore the connecting contemporary romance she has written! Definitely a win in my book.

Anna Hackett I loved everything about this book: the characters, the storyline, the action, the suspense, the drama, the danger and lest we forget...the sizzle. Mav and Remi are perfect for one another. They make being brainiacs sexy. Remi's sassiness was a hoot. Mav trying to maintain his stoic, hard a$$ image while around Remi was laugh out loud funny. I am now going to read the other two books in this series. Anna Hackett

Summary Hacking Mr. CEO (Billionaire Heists #3)

To save the only mother I’ve ever known, all I have to do is hack a tech billionaire.

My foster mother is sick. The woman who gave me a home, love, a life. I’ll do anything to find the money for her surgery, including using my skills as a hacker.

My name’s Remi, also known as Rogue Angel, and usually I work for a security company testing clients’ systems. But now a shadowy bad guy has tracked me down and given me an ultimatum.

I have to hack Rivera Tech—the biggest technology company in the world, owned by billionaire CEO, Maverick Rivera. If I do, I get paid and I can help my foster mother. If I don’t, my family is in danger.

Hacking Rivera is no walk in the park, and soon I find myself in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse with big, grumpy, and way-too-sexy Maverick. What I never, ever expected was for him to make me feel safe, or to threaten my closely-guarded heart, or to ignite every single part of me.

I can’t drag him into my mess.

But Maverick has other ideas, and he isn’t a man who takes no for an answer.

Each book in the Billionaire Heists Trilogy can be read as a stand-alone, action-packed romance. Hacking Mr. CEO (Billionaire Heists #3)

Get it here:
Amazon US * Amazon UK Anna Hackett Well Mav brings this delicious trilogy to an end as he finally finds room in his heart for love. Everything about this book was fast paced and that definitely includes the romance between Mav and Remi the woman who tries to hack his system. Remi isn’t a villainess though as she is caught up in someone’s scheme that is about to put not only her but everyone she cares about in danger. Mav is fascinated by bold Remi and realises that by working together they can catch the mystery caller but this time they are not playing in virtual reality but actual real life with all its consequences !
It felt like the author decided to just have fun with this couple and throw everything she could think of into this book. Cute children, matchmaking mothers, defensive friends, bad guys that don’t quit and of course hot, steamy and surprisingly rapid romance. I won’t lie for me that side of things felt perhaps a little too instant as I prefer the build up of tension but right from their first conversations this couple had banter that definitely made me smile. It was fun reading about how this couple could both work and ahem play together. Most of all I liked that they very obviously respected each other’s talents. A couple of new characters appear which I’m sure the author will want to revisit when she’s found a suitable scenario for them. This book ends with very happy tears and of course leaves this reader already wanting to read more from this talented and imaginative author.
This voluntary take is of an advanced copy and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair Anna Hackett Originally published at Reading Reality

In the very first of the Billionaire Heists series, Stealing from Mr. Rich, the first of the “Bachelor Billionaires”, as the New York City news media calls them, found himself falling for a woman who was in way over her head – and his – with some really evil dudes who were out to rob him blind, using her as their patsy.

In the second book, Blackmailing Mr. Bossman, the second bachelor falls for a woman who seems to be blackmailing him because her bestie is being blackmailed by people who are after his money. This one was just the right book at the right time for me, as everyone who seems to be lying turns out either not to be or doing it for the best of intentions.

In the first two stories, the romance happens because the women who find themselves in these messes begin with the very best of intentions, trying their damnedest to fix a situation that they may not have broken but that they feel responsible for patching up.

None of them are damsels in distress, wringing their hands and waiting for a man to sweep in and fix things for them. They’re out there trying to fix the mess for themselves when the man they have been forced to do wrong by decides that he’s not going to sit passively by while someone evil messes with both of them.

They are on the same side after all – even if they don’t start out that way.

In this final book in the series, white-hat hacker Remi Solano finds herself donning a black hat when she learns that her foster mom needs expensive experimental treatment to remove an otherwise inoperable brain tumor. Mama Alma has less than 6 months to live, and Remi and her siblings together couldn’t raise the kind of money if they had 6 years to do it in. So she markets her only skill on the dark web, hoping to make a score that will get Mama into that expensive treatment.

And she gets in way over her head. Because otherwise we wouldn’t have this marvelous story.

Someone wants her to hack into Rivera Tech and steal the files on something called the Calyx Project. She doesn’t know who they are, and she doesn’t know what the project is, but the job pays a cool million and that’s enough to take care of Mama.

Not that Remi actually wants to hack Rivera. She’s not exactly sure that she can, even as skilled as she is. Rivera Tech has the best security she’s ever seen, which only makes sense because Maverick Rivera is a genius programmer and computer designer in his own right. And it’s his company, the extremely handsome profits from which have made him the third of the “Billionaire Bachelors”.

Although, Remi has seen plenty of pictures of the man, and she’d be more than happy to hack one of his extremely well-tailored suits right off his sexy body. Not that she thinks she’ll ever have the chance – especially not if she manages to pull off this job.

And that’s where everything gets hairy. Or goes south. Or pear-shaped. Or all of the above.

Calyx is a super-secret government project. Whoever wants Remi to steal it is planning on committing treason – or planning on Remi committing treason on their behalf. Remi’s obviously a pawn in this game, a pawn that the contractor called “The Shadow” refuses to let go of when Remi and Mav join forces.

The chase is on. The Shadow wants them both dead. They’ve become loose ends in his failed attempt to hack Rivera by proxy, and he never leaves loose ends. They’re dodging bullets and hired badasses while they try to close in on the villain who is trying to close in on them.

Meanwhile, they’re closing in on each other, even if neither of them has any expectations that the other will stay once all the excitement is over – one way or another.

Escape Rating A-: I think this was my favorite game in the whole series, making it end on a marvelous high note. I loved the hacking scenario, and the way that Remi and Mav just had a great time geeking out together.

The way the story ended, with Mav and Remi being chased by The Shadow through the entire Rivera Tech campus, read like it would make a great video game, which felt totally appropriate for a romantic suspense story featuring two geeks.

I have to say that the villain of this piece, The Shadow, was just a bit too over the top. He’s the only thing keeping this from being an A grade. I loved Remi and Mav, I enjoyed the hell out of watching them get together, and all the geekery was very much my jam. The Shadow, while extremely dangerous and deadly, had a persona that wouldn’t have been out of place in a B grade superhero movie.

Which, come to think of it, is also pretty geeky. Just not as cool as the rest of the story.

While I’m happy to see the Billionaire Bachelors all find their HEAs, I’m kind of sorry to see this series end. On my third hand, this does plenty of crossover with Norcross Security, which is clearly not done yet. After all, Vander Norcross, the boogeyman’s boogeyman as Remi called him, still has to find a woman he can’t run over. That’s going to be epic!
Anna Hackett 5 stars ⭐️

Action, Suspense, a roller coaster ride. Dodging bullets while trying to track down an assassin, the game is try to stay alive long enough for help to arrive. Enjoyed every moment of it, as usual. Anna Hackett 5 stars

“Big Guy” Mav is so swoony. Let’s be honest here. I’m a sucker for a grumpy alpha male. Sue me.

Remi was the perfect amount of sassy smart ass. The banter between her and Mav did things to my heart. They both opened up so we’ll go each other.

I’m going to be a sexy hacker in my next life. Anna Hackett
