Review - Wicked Sexy by JT Geissinger

Title - Wicked Sexy
Author - JT Geissinger




Synopsis 

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?
 

My Thoughts

If you’ve read Wicked Beautiful then you’ve met Tabby and Connor. You know that the sexual tension is thick between these two, but the dislike towards one another is more. Now if you haven’t read Wicked Beautiful fear not! Wicked Sexy is a standalone and you don’t need to reas Wicked Beautiful to get the story.

Connor is ex-military turned private security. He works with big name clients and isn’t afraid to get to get his hands dirty. When he met Tabby he wanted to tie her up and spank her, and not in a kinky way. She had hacked his system and knocked his ego down a few pegs. But when a customer needs a computer hacker to help save her business there is only one person he knows who can handle the job, Tabby.

Tabby can’t stand Connor. From his cargo pants to his insufferable personality. When she finds out he needs her help her immediate thought is NO, until she hears the name of the hacker he needs help taking down. The hacker is her worst nightmare and she will do anything to take him down. 

One cross-country road trip, a couple rounds of hate s*x, and high tension in the work place...what can go wrong? Can Connor and Tabby set aside their differences and see whats right in front of there faces? Will the structured man fall for the hot mess woman? Will the hello kitty obsessed woman commit to the cargo pants man? Only time and high tension will tell.
I really enjoyed Wicked Sexy. Geissinger definitely nailed it with story. I honestly cannot think of another story similar to this one. She made it easy to laugh when necessary and when to sit on the edge of your seat in suspense. Tabby is a fiesty take no crap kind of woman that knows how to be vunerable, and I loved that. I was seriously girl crushing on her. Then Connor is a total alpha male, which I love. Wicked Sexy is definitely one-click worthy. 

In the mean time here are a couple of my favorite quotes from the story;

“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. I love that she’s brilliant and bold and mercilessly independent, but manages to make me feel like a king when she blushes.”

“Tabby sends me a look that says if I take a step in her direction I’ll get a knife shoved through my thorax.”

“That’s just a side gig. Its primary function will be saving the world.”
