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? 

I have met Tabby and Conner in Wicked Beautiful and LOVED them. Wicked Beautiful was my first book by J.T. Geissinger and it certainly was not the last. In Wicked Sexy...there is just something about the clashing of Tabby and Cooner's personalities, which created such a strong and amazing tension between them right from the start. I was craving for more! I seriously cannot freaking wait for the next book in the series. I love the way J.T. incorporates new characters and introduces new plot lines that might take place in future books. There is one certain character in this book that I would love to hear more about...especially his THOR-like tendencies ;)

PLOT LINE - When someone gets hacked...gaining another hacker on board is the only solution. Mostly all hackers think a like, right? As a threat is issued against one of the most known people in the entertainment industry, Miranda will hire anyone who can fix her problem...even when if it'll cost her a million dollars. Connor Hughes is one of the best of the best...which of course is the best in what he does. When he was hired to secure a threat...he knew who to go after. Three years ago, Connor and Tabby crossed paths when unfortuanate circumstances brought them together. Now...Tabitha West was his first choice, no questions asked because she is one of the best hackers in the world. Nothing can get past this bad ass chick. While there was simmering tension in the past...there is most definitely tension right now. This tension really does drive the plot line...as more issues begin to pop up...can they set it aside to solve the case. This story can really be turned into a movie. I can see it playing in my head as I read it. 

CHEMISTRY - HOT HOT HOT....everything about Connor is so *sigh* sexy. All the little teasing efforts to try to make Tabby tick are hilarious. Can Connor be everywhere I go so I can have a body guard and someone to laugh with. There are so many cute and sexy moments that unravel between Tabby and Connor. You'll want more of them after the ending. Please let them have more cameos in future books! That would be amazing. And oh boy...when Ryan is introduced into the scenes...he makes everything 100X more hilarious. I cannot wait for his story!!! ;)

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?
