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 predicted.
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?
I received a copy of this story for an honest review.
Are you looking for a an action packed stand alone that will have you on the edge of your seat? Looking for leads that have sizzle in and out of the sheets? Look no farther than Wicked Sexy by J.T. Geissinger.
What I Loved: Wicked Sexy kicks into high gear in its first chapter and refuses to stop. I could not put this story down, it just demanded to be read in one sitting. A strong part of my love for this story has to do with leads Tabby and Conner. Each peaked my interest in Wicked Beautiful (Wicked Games #1) but in lead roles Tabby and Conner were just phenomenal. Snarky banter mixed with the damage of old demons, the two initially came off as opposite as oil and water only to prove to be the perfect ying and yang. Love, love, love this pair.
What I Didn't Love: The big bad of the story is identified pretty early on in the story. Based off of the strong chess game of intrigue played by the main players I expected an epic conclusion. Though the conclusion is ultimately satisfying the big bad's one on one final interactions with the heroine and hero felt a little condensed or rushed.
"Never let a sheep guard the chicken coop. The wolves will always find a way in."
"I'm not weird. I'm limited edition."
"I love all her contradictions. I love that she wears sexy, revealing outfits, has tattoos and piercings, swears like a sailor and knows Krav Maga, but a single kiss can undo her."
"You're pretty territorial for a woman who only wants to be a team of one, sweetheart."
Wicked Sexy has cemented my appreciation for J.T Geissinger and I can't wait for her next book in this series.
