RELEASE DAY REVIEW: Wicked Sexy by J.T. Geissinger

Title: Wicked Sexy
Author: J.T. Geissinger
Series: Wicked Games, #2
Publisher: Jack's House Publishing
Publication Date: July 19, 2016

A badass ex-Special Ops officer and a smartass hacker fight a dangerous enemy…and a blistering attraction to each other.

Connor Hughes is an ex-special ops officer, CEO of Metrix Security, and bonafide badass. His private security firm is renowned for its effectiveness. He’s renowned for his lethal precision and iron self-control. But when the former Marine meets a gorgeous young hacker with a mouth as smart as her brain, his control unravels in ways he never could have produceted.

Tabitha West is a genius MIT dropout with a bad attitude, an obsession with Hello Kitty and piercings in unmentionable places. Tabby amuses herself by outwitting the most secure technology systems on the planet. Known in hacker circles as Polaroid due to her photographic memory, she’s as secretive as she is accustomed to working alone. So when Connor decides she’s the only one who can help him catch a cyber criminal intent on taking down one of his clients, she tells him exactly where he can stick it.  

But when the cyber criminal turns out to be the Hannibal Lecter of computer crime—and a dark presence from Tabby’s past—Tabby and Connor are drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. They quickly find themselves fighting not only their common enemy, but also an explosive desire that threatens to consume them.

When the stakes are this high and the game this deadly, will falling in love be the most dangerous move of all?

For a moment Connor just examines my face in silence. There’s a strange tension in him, a stillness, like a held breath but in his entire body. Then he abruptly swings around in his seat so he’s facing me, his massive thighs on either side of my bar stool, his booted feet planted on the floor.

Trapping me.

“What do you think you’re doing?” I ask, my voice high with panic.

“Got something to say to you. It’s important, so don’t talk until the end.”

He looks dangerously intense. His dark eyes are heated, drilling into mine. His cheeks are flushed from the fire, or from something else, but I don’t have time to think about what that something else might be because he opens his mouth and starts to speak, and my brain faints dead away, leaving me to fend for myself.

“I want you. Bad. Don’t know exactly why, you’re a complete pain in my ass and pretty much the most contrary, foul-tempered woman I’ve ever met, and you’ve made it really clear what you think about me, but every time I look at you I have an almost overpowering urge to touch you, kiss you, do a lot of bad things to you, and I don’t know how to manage it. Yeah, it might be more prudent for me to keep this shit to myself, but I know that when you don’t talk about shit it festers, gets worse, and if the way I feel about you gets any worse I won’t be able to put my goddamn shoes on in the morning. So I’m putting it out there.”

He takes a breath. Deeply shocked, I stare at him with my mouth open, my heart up in my throat.

“We’re both professionals. We have a job to do. And I don’t mix business with pleasure. Ever. But the way I figure it, we’ve got one more night until the work actually starts, and if I don’t do something to get you straight in my head I won’t be able to do the job at all.”

He stops abruptly. Then he waits, watching me with unwavering intensity as I attempt to digest what just happened.

I whisper in disbelief, “You’re propositioning me?”

His gaze drops to my lips. When he looks back into my eyes, his own are burning. “You liked that kiss.”

He gives me time to deny it, but I don’t. How could I? We both know I’d be lying.

He adds, “And you called me hot, so I know you don’t think I’m a complete troll, even though you act like you do.”

“That was an accident.”

“Yep.” He nods. “And you fuckin’ hated yourself for it. Which is why I know it was true.”

Things are happening in my body. My nipples harden, my breath quickens, there is a distinctive throb and ache between my legs. All because this jarhead I hate just told me he wants to do bad things to me.

Bad things. Dear God, were any two sexier words ever spoken?

Sonja's Review

Oh, I couldn't wait to read Wicked Sexy after I read the synopsis and seeing what Connor and Tabitha were like together in Wicked Beautiful made me even more excited! It was just as good as I thought it was going to be and then some. It is definitely my favorite in the series so far - I completely, wholeheartedly loved it!

I loved Tabitha in Wicked Beautiful and my love for her only grew in this book and seriously, how could you not love Tabitha?! She is totally her own person, she's unique, independent fierce, wicked smart, brave, and just an all-around bada*s. Tabby is brilliant and exciting and funny and she has such a big personality. There was no part of Tabby that I didn't love - I loved her strength, her stubbornness, her broken heart, her vulnerability, and her spirit. She is an absolutely wonderful heroine and I'm going to miss her - there's no one like Tabitha!

And Connor - I loved Connor just as much as I loved Tabitha! I honestly can't tell you which one I love more and that almost never happens because I'm usually all about the heroes, but Ms. Geissinger wrote such strong leads that it's impossible for me to decide. And can you blame me? Connor is funny and sweet and playful and teasing - not to mention - protective and loyal. Connor is like my dream guy and he stole my heart!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed reading Wicked Sexy! It was funny and light but also heartbreaking and dark sometimes. It's sexy and steamy, full of action, danger, and twists and turns that I didn't see coming. It was captivating, beautiful, heartwarming and I never wanted to stop reading it. I'm a little sad to say goodbye to Connor and Tabitha and to the series for right now, but I can't wait to see where Ms. Geissinger takes us with the Wicked Games series next!

Wicked Sexy is the second book in this series, but it is a standalone. It's told from Connor and Tabitha's POV, and they do get their HEA.
