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?
Wow, another book by J.T. Geissinger that I couldn’t put down! She definitely knows how to hook me and have me on the edge of my seat for most of her books! I absolutely loved Connor and Tabby! They are so fun and their banter! Oh, I love their banter. This author knows what she’s doing. Not only is there great banter between the main characters but the other characters as well. Then add incredibly steamy scenes with a hot guy who isn’t afraid of his feelings, I was in love! The suspense between Tabby and Connor’s relationship along with the whole hacker thing kept my fingers eager to swipe to the next page. Wicked Sexy is a fun, suspenseful book full of great characters and intrigue.
“Just because you’re used to being surrounded by other stars doesn’t make your star shine any less bright to the rest of us down here on earth.”
Even with the few times that I wanted to shake some sense into Tabby about giving Connor a chance I still loved them. They were so fun together! Tabby is awesome and a total badass! I’d love to be her or have her as a friend. She’s incredibly smart like maybe one of the smartest people there is, and it’s amazing the things she can do with her mind. Her quick wit had me laughing more times than I can count.
bad-tempered, foul-mouthed Hello Kitty fiend with a constellation of tattoos on her body and a mind like a maze.
Connor was perfect for me. Smart, sexy, protective, sweet, and dominate. The perfect alpha male. I loved how quickly he fell for Tabby and only held back so that he didn’t scare her away.
… he’s much smarter than he lets on. He plays the blunt, sexed-up, muscle-bound military man to absolute perfection, so no one will think to look closer. But it’s an act. A brilliantly executed, nuanced disguise.
This enemy-to-lovers romance is fun! While trying to bait one another, they are equally falling for the other. The chemistry is undeniable and makes for some scorching scenes. One of the things I liked best is that they never hid who they were and despite the other’s faults fell for them without wanting them to change.
The way he’s staring at me, the heat in his eyes, the hardness of his jaw, the raw, unmistakable need —I’ve never been looked at like this by a man. I feel as if I’m standing in the sun for the first time. I feel like I’ve been living under ground my entire life, and I’ve just crawled out of a hole into glorious, burning sunlight.
You get to know both characters with dual first person points of views. I have to say there is just something about books about hackers that I just LOVE and the author did a great job with the story line and making everything work perfectly. I love that there were twists that I never thought of and made the story that much more exciting. Although this book is the second in the Wicked Games series, it can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend it because it’s another fantastic enemy-to-lover romance but also a second chance love story. I will definitely be reading more from this author!
“Should I jump to the ending? Spoiler alert: The hero saves her.”
