Unlock My Heart

Scarred Hearts Book Series

Book Two

by Jennifer Wilck


GENRE: Contemporary Romance



Abby Marlow, computer security expert, lands a job at the best IT security firm in the country. Her sole focus is financial independence so she never has to rely on others again, especially a man. But why does her boss make her wires short circuit?

Ted Endicott, CEO and founder of the IT security firm, is hard of hearing. Although an expert in his field, he’s still uncomfortable admitting his difficulty hearing to his clients or employees. So why is he willing to accept Abby’s help?

As Ted and Abby work together, barriers fall away, and soon the lines blur between colleagues and lovers. But a security glitch in a client's system indicates one of his employees is the hacker, and all signs point to Abby. Can they get past the suspicion and find a future together?



“You always run alone?”

She pointed to a nearby jogger. “I’m not alone.”

“But you’re not with anyone.”

Standing this close to him, she wished for things she shouldn’t. “No, I’m not.”

“How far are you going?”

“The end of the trail and back.” Or however long it took to get him out of her mind.

He put his helmet on. “Come on, I’ll keep you company.”

“It’s not necessary.” Clearing her mind would be impossible with him next to her.

“It’s safer this way.” He looked down the trail.

His desire to protect her sent warmth curling up and down her spine. It had been a long time since anyone was concerned about her. All of a sudden, the idea of company appealed to her. Touching his arm— and trying not to squeeze his bicep like you would if you tested the ripeness of a peach—she waited for him to turn. “You’re welcome to join me if you want. If you can keep up.” She winked and raced away, his bark of laughter a brief punch in the silence behind her.

She no longer kept an easy pace, easing into the morning. This time, she sprinted hard. The slight whir of his bike wheels warned her as he reached her a few moments later.

“You’re pretty fast, but I’d suggest you slow down.”

She turned toward him. “Out of pity for you?”

His lips twitched, and his nostrils flared, but he kept his humor reined tight. Instead, he cycled next to her, his head turned slightly toward her. “The only pity I ask for is please don’t make me carry you home when you’re too tired to continue.”



This book is such an incredible, inspiring, engaging, and extremely captivating read!!!  I could not put it down, nor did I want to!!!

This is the fourth book I’ve read from the incredible writer, Jennifer Wilck. I have thoroughly enjoyed her books and this one was no exception!!

This book follows the story of Abby, a smart, caring, independent, self-sufficient, techno-savvy computer security expert and programmer who has recently landed her dream job at one of the world's top premier IT security firms, Endicott Security Company.  This book actually starts out with Abby’s final job interview with Ted Endicott, the CEO of Endicott.

This book also follows Abby’s new boss, Ted.  Ted is intelligent, handsome, distinguished, quiet, reserved, sensitive, and occasionally a tad bit on the grumpy, touchy side lol.  Ted also suffers from significant hearing loss and while he does wear hearing aids (some of the time) he is still very subconscious about them and his condition.  He admits that although he has personally accepted his ailment, he still feels embarrassed, awkward, and uncomfortable, and refers to his disability as a disadvantage.

This book takes an exciting and intriguing new twist on a forbidden work romance trope.

This book is full of heart pounding, intense, passionate romance and there is no doubt about the chemistry between Ted and Abby.  These two clearly complement each other and it’s hard not to be cheering and rooting for their relationship success.

I absolutely loved Abby!!  She was so sweet, good-natured, relatable, and easy to connect to!!  She’s clearly the type of character you could totally see yourself being friends with!!  I appreciated her hard work, dedication, and need to be self-reliant.  Abby describes having watched her mom always needing to rely on a guy to get by and pay her bills, and how she never wants to ever be put in a similar situation, so she works even harder to be financially secure and independent.  Huge respect props and admiration for Abby!!

I think what I love most about Jennifer Wilck’s writing is her ability to create, grow, and fully develop realistic, multi-dimensional characters that are genuine, original, and completely relatable!!  She doesn’t write cookie-cutter characters – these characters are flawed, imperfect, and full of insecurities and vulnerabilities!!  These characters feel real which makes the story easy to get into, creates a meaningful bond with the characters, and an investment into how their story unfolds and their personal outcome.

There are some predictable scenes.  However, there are still a few unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming!!

This book is Book Two of The Scarred Hearts Book Series.  This book can easily be read as a standalone.

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!!  I think all contemporary romance readers and romance fans will like this book too!!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!!

Jennifer telling herself stories as a little girl when she couldn’t fall asleep at night. Pretty soon, her head was filled with these stories and the characters that populated them. Even as an adult, she thinks about the characters and stories at night before she falls asleep or walking the dog. Eventually, she started writing them down. Her favorite stories to write are those with smart, sassy, independent heroines; handsome, strong and slightly vulnerable heroes; and her stories always end with happily ever after.

In the real world, she’s the mother of two amazing daughters and wife of one of the smartest men she knows. When she’s not writing, she loves to laugh with her family and friends, is a pro at finding whatever her kids lost in plain sight, and spends way too much time closing doors that should never have been left open in the first place. She believes humor is the only way to get through the day and does not believe in sharing her chocolate.

Jennifer Wilck is an award-winning contemporary romance author for readers who are passionate about love, laughter, and happily ever after. Known for writing both Jewish and non-Jewish romances, her books feature damaged heroes, sassy and independent heroines, witty banter and hot chemistry. Jennifer’s ability to transport the reader into the scene, create characters the reader will fall in love with, and evoke a roller coaster of emotions, will hook you from the first page. You can find her books at all major online retailers in a variety of formats.
