By Tracey Garvis Graves
Release Date: August 25


When Kate Watts abandoned her law career to open a food pantry in Northeast Minneapolis, she never dreamed it would be this difficult. Facing the heartbreaking prospect of turning hungry people away, she is grateful for the anonymous donations that begin appearing at the end of each month. Determined to identify and thank her secret benefactor, she launches a plan and catches Ian —a charismatic hacker with a Robin Hood complex—in the act. 
Ian intrigues Kate in a way no man ever has. But after learning he’s snooped around on her personal computer, she demands retribution. Impressed with her tolerance and captivated by her spirit, he complies and begins to slowly charm his way past her defenses. Time spent with Ian is never boring, and Kate soon finds herself falling for the mysterious hacker.
But Ian has enemies and they’re growing restless. In the hacking world, exploiting a target’s weakness is paramount, and no price is too high to stop an attack. And when Kate learns exactly how much Ian has paid, she’ll discover just how strong her love is for the man who has hacked his way into her heart.

Link to the first 5 chapters:

Kate was taking a break and having coffee and a muffin at Wilde Roast Café when Ian slid into the booth and sat across from her. He was wearing a lightweight cream-colored sweater with a tan-and-green-patterned shirt underneath, and he smelled good. 
“Hello again.” 
Confused, Kate looked around. “Where did you come from?” 
“I walked in the door like everyone else.” 
“Do you live nearby?” Kate lived in the St. Anthony Main neighborhood of Northeast Minneapolis. The food pantry was conveniently located on SE Main Street, which was a short three-block walk from her apartment. The quiet brick-paved street was lined with restaurants, shops, and a movie theater and included a stunning view of the Mississippi River and St. Anthony Falls. There were also bars that featured live music and plenty of green space in nearby parks. 
He shook his head. “Not really.”
“Then why are you here?” 
“I felt like talking to you again. You’re seated, so you probably won’t try to strangle me this time.” 
“How did you know where to find me?” She was tucked away in a back booth instead of one of the tables near the windows that looked out over SE Main, so it wasn’t like he’d walked by and spotted her. 
He held a steaming cup of coffee and blew on it to cool it. “I tracked your credit card activity. According to Capital One, you bought a cup of coffee and a muffin here twelve minutes ago.” 
“You tracked my credit card?” Her voice sounded rather loud and shrieky. 
He held a finger in front of his mouth. “Shh, Katie Long Legs. That information is for your ears only. How’s your coffee? Would you like a refill?”
Kate did not appreciate being shushed, but she lowered her voice. “Are you some kind of cyberthief?” she whispered. And since when were criminals so well-dressed and impeccably groomed? 
“I did not steal your credit card number. I simply accessed your account to see where and when you’d used it last. Then I came here.” 
“If you wanted to talk to me again, why didn’t you just go to the food pantry?”
He looked at her like it was obvious. “Because you’re not there. You’re here at this café.”
“If you’re not a cyberthief, then what are you?”
“I’m a hacker.”
“Is there a difference?”
“Most definitely.” 
“When you said you steal from the rich to give to the poor, I thought you were kidding. Is that how you get the money?”
“I don’t steal it. I appropriate it from people who shouldn’t have it in the first place. Then I give it to those who are more deserving.”
Kate twisted her napkin. “I can’t keep the money. I’ve already spent the first two donations, but if you come back to the food pantry with me, I can return the most recent one. It’s still locked in the safe because I wasn’t planning on going shopping until tomorrow.” 
“No, Katie. I don’t want it back. It’s for you. It’s for the babies.” 
“It’s wrong,” she said quietly. 
“Is it?”
“It’s against the law.” 
“Trust me when I say the people I took it from don’t want the law involved any more than I do.” 
“What are you saying? That you’re a thief who steals from other thieves?” 
He wrinkled his nose, and it was adorable. 
Stop! Thief! 
“It sounds so distasteful when you say it like that. I prefer master appropriator of ill-gotten funds. You can call me master for short.” 
“I have lots of things I’d like to call you. Master is not one of them.”

5 stars 
There are not too many authors that I absolutely love all of their work. In fact, there is only one or two. Tracey Garvis-Graves is one of those authors and this book did not disappoint at all.

I went into reading this not knowing anything about the book. I don't even think I read the blurb because I wanted to be surprised. This book was so much more than what I could have imagined. I loved every minute of it!

Heart-Shaped Hack is a witty and smart story. It will literally have you laughing out loud over the smart mind and mouth of Ian.  Ian, of course is the hacker who is a modern day Robin Hood of sorts. He steals from people who have hacked and stolen money from other. How brilliant is that?? To steal from people who have already stolen?? Cause who is going to go to police when they have committed the first crime.  Ian is brilliant like that. He out smarts most of the people he knows. 

Ian's Robin Hood ways lead him to Kate Watts. She recently went on TV asking for money for the food pantry she is running. She is in desperate need of funds for the upcoming holidays. She has a heart of gold and wants to make sure all her families are all set. The food pantry is in desperate need of money. Kate is worried about where her funding will come from. When Ian's generous donations start coming in.... she wants to meet the man behind them .

Ian immediately sees something in Kate that he likes, even if it is through the TV. Who can blame him??  She is beautiful, has a heart of gold and it turns out, she doesn't really put up with his craziness. Kate dishes it back out to Ian, and Ian does every second of it. 

Their love story is unconventional, but it funny, and sweet and works for them. The only problem is Ian is a hacker. This requires him to be kind of shady about a lot of things. For example, Kate doesn't  even know Ian's last name for the longest time. At first all these things bother Kate, but as she falls in love with Ian, things become more easy to accept in his crazy hacker world. 

Just like any other book by Tracey Garvis-Graves other books, there is a plot change you will never see coming and it will change everything. It completely blew my mind. Tracey Garvis-Graves  broke me and then somehow put me back together all in one story. I was an emotional mess, literally crying and then swooning all over again.

There is something about Tracey Garvis-Graves books that make me have all these feelings. On The Island is one of my favorite books of all time and now Heart-Shaped Hack is up there too.
