**5 Wicked stars**

It bears repeating that JTG writes enthralling and smart stories, which are oftentimes over laced with humour and suspense.

She is also unapologetic in eschewing the usual gazillionaire hero/poverty-stricken untouched heroine (let's not forget the BDSM trope) in favour of characters that are multi-faceted with prose that is fast-paced and clever. Wicked Intentions does not disappoint. Highly recommend.

This book was absolutely INCREDIBLE to read cover to cover! I never wanted it to end! Ryan McLean has got to be one of THE BEST heroes I've ever come across in my years of reading romance. He was undeniably sexy, incredibly sweet and charming, and oh so cocky and gorgeous! It makes me smile just thinking about his sweet ways and his southern charm, and we can't forget the dirty-talk! Everything about WICKED INTENTIONS pushed my buttons - AMAZING writing, INCREDIBLE characters, enough ACTION and

Whenever I start a J.T. Geissinger book I know that I am going to be blown away by an amazing story, a hot Alpha male and the sassy, strong woman that will bring him to his knees. This is exactly what we received with Wicked Intentions. I FLOVED every minute of this book. It was fastpaced, filled with exhilarating action and SCORCHING sexy times. Ryan and Mariana had COMBUSTIBLE chemistry that would not quit. J.T. seriously broke the mold with Mariana and Ryan. They were amazing and I was left m ...more

This is the 3rd book in the WICKED GAMES series.

I fell in love with Book 1.
Loved Book 2 very much.
And once again, I fell in love with Book 3.
I FLOVED every minute of this book.

This is an awesome series… my type of books.

Normally, I do not have many favorite authors but Ms. J.T. Geissinger is one of the few writers I feel I can count on.

This book has everything. It is emotional, hot and funny.

My kind of emotional.
My kind of hot.
And my kind of funny…

Intelligent and fun banter wrapped up in vulnera

3.5 stars for the story, rounded to 4 because of this quote:
"I’m so grateful I’m a woman. We can get turned on without completely losing our intellect to our genitals."

It happens when I have high expectations…
I floved previous book and I anticipated this one for months!
Well, it was good, but not brilliant.
She wasn’t weak, but she wasn’t a badass!!!

I don’t have an IQ of 156 as a hero (but I also don’t make jokes like: nuns don’t ovulate), so I kinda got lost in the story…

Mindy Lou's Book Review

This was such a fantastic read. I've not been disappointed by this author so as soon as I got my hands on this, I dived right in. To say she outdid herself is an understatement! This book checked off so many of my book wants/needs that I could have easily re-read it as soon as I finished.

This whole series has been such a great ride and to know an author just gets it better with each book, is icing on the cake. I think it's pretty obvious I would recommend this book to everyone. It has suspense,
Tijuana *Book Twins Reviews*
Wicked Intentions is action packed, sexy as sin, and sprinkled with humor. What a thrilling read!! It's the perfect mix of action, adventure, espionage, grit, humor, and steam. It grabs the reader's attention from the very beginning and doesn't let up until the very end.

Here's the breakdown: Ryan meets Mariana while vacationing. He immediately reads her body language and deduces she's not who she seems. Likewise, Mariana does the same with Ryan. It doesn't matter that they both lie to one anoth

If I could give only ONE BOOK RECOMMENDATION this whole year, it would be THIS BOOK. Holy Book Perfection. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, JT Geissinger is a genius. You know those authors that are underestimated and not nearly enough people know about them or read their books? That’s JT Geissinger.

I read Wicked Sexy last year and was blown away. After reading Wicked Intentions, my brain and heart and body are bursting!! These books are the whole package

I really enjoyed this book. It's Thomas Crown Affair'ish with a side of the A-team. Great writing, GREAT smouldering,intense attraction between the main characters and a great plot. I absolutely adored Ryan..for everything he did and felt for Marianna. His laid back, sunny disposition made him that much more charming. And that plot twist... my heart broke for Marianna! HIGHLY recommended!
What an outstanding story! I absolutely loved this book and these characters. It’s no secret that I’m a huge J.T. Geissinger fan but she outdid herself with Ryan and Marianna.

Marianna is unlike any heroine I’ve ever read before. Strong, resolute, wounded, but able to love and committed to do whatever it takes to protects those she cares about. She’s had an abysmal life and should be pretty much damaged beyond compare. Yes, there are other heroines in other books that have these traits, but there

“When you let me see you, the real you, it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”

I didn’t think it was possible, but this series just keeps getting better and better. Suspenseful, unexpected, irresistibly erotic, yet deeply romantic too, this book is truly the full package in every possible way, and as hard as I tried to savour it for as long as I could, I ended up devouring it in a single sitting. A sensual, gripping page-turner that starts off with a ruse, but then turns into a high-s

This third book in the series gives us the charming, funny and hotly protective alpha Ryan and the fiercely strong-willed, resourceful and resilient internationally wanted thief Mariana. Mariana is trapped in a blood oath that has her tethered to the dark underbelly of human life/society, an encounter with Ryan and one steamy night, has her life taking an unexpected turn – one she does not see coming, but which gives her hope that darkness is not the only thing in her future.

★★ 4.5 stars! ★★

This is my second book by JT Geissinger and I am just as blown away by Wicked Intentions as I was Wicked Sexy ! I’m totally buying her brand of suspenseful romance—it's sexy, it's intelligent, and it's addicting. With a storyline steeped in intrigue, secrets, lies, action, smarts, and HEAT, this book is a roller-coaster ride from beginning to end. Once I picked it up, I never wanted to put it down. Ryan and Mariana’s story is unexpectedly emotional, despite both of the main char

A romantic suspense that hits the ground running and never lets up. Brimming with action, intrigue, betrayals, never-ending pursuits, sexual tension and nail-biting clincher. It couldn't have been a better all-around perfect reading experience. Simply stupendous -- extraordinarily outstanding!

For me, Geissinger represents the feel of a newer updated version of Brockmann, and she's making a powerful statement with her superb writing skills and dynamic characters. Watch out for this one -- she'll

There is something about JT Geissinger books that I just love. Truthfully I think its a combo of hot alpha men, strong female characters who give their men sass, captivating stories that are so suspenseful that you are sitting on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next, the heat..OMG THE HEAT. But when it boils down to it, its really that they are just written so damn well...that my friends is what makes a really good book—a well written story.

I didn’t really like Mariana or Ryan all that much. Their insta-love was TOO insta-lovey, if that make sense. It wasn’t as natural as the previous books.

It also just felt really soap opera-esque towards the end, which was a total derailment from where I initially thought the story was going to go.

Still a pretty solid read to pass the time!

I dove into Wicked Intentions without reading the synopsis, therefore I didn't give it much thought or expectation. It wasn't until the 30%-ish mark that I realized I had read the other books in the series. Naturally, I went back and re-read my reviews on both Wicked Beautiful and Wicked Sexy and was reminded of the pleasant surprise that I like this series. Needless to say, this third installment didn't disappoint. Don't let the covers fool you, these stories are brilliant.

His character was the same as Connor, in the book two.

Reading it, I wasn't sure i would rate it 5★.
First of all, it took my 3 days to finish it. Then, I got thinking that after 4 J.T. Geissinger books, things start to look familiar, as in same jokes, same wording and so on.
But i knew I why declared I'm this author's biggest fan. She managed to surprise me and stop my breathing for the last 20% of the book with her "fancy lies", that I completely forgot about everything thing else.

In this story, the heroine is a thief. Think Catherine Jeta-Jones

I'd never spent time considering what my dream woman would be like, but apparently she's on Interpol's Most Wanted list.

High-action, high-feeling stories so far in this series. (Of course, I do still need to read book one.)

This time around, we're introduced to Mariana - the famous Dragonfly thief, wanted by governments all over the world. But she doesn't steal for fun. She's under the thumb of a man worse than the devil.

Geissinger writes another story with a very strong minded heroine in a very difficult situation. While Geissing pairs her up with an alpha male, this kickass heroine shines through on her own merits. I wonder why this book cover are of a man instead of a woman. No matter, after reading this book, you know who took the spotlight. It's definitely a welcome trend Geissinger is consistent with in this series.

***5 ‘Dragonfly’ Stars***

As much as I hate to admit it, when I read the description of a book I envision the journey that the author is more than likely to take me on. I shouldn’t, and I try hard not to, but it’s human nature to guess what will happen. I expect to be surprised with a few well timed twists in the plot line, but I settle on the tone and go from there. So it isn’t often that I’m knocked on my ass by a book and the route that is taken, but Ms. Geissinger did just that with Wicked

Ryan was one of the most perfect heroes I’ve ever read. He deserves better than this fucking clusterfuck of a book. And he deserves better than Mariana. This book went from amazing to off the fucking rails awful in a blink. Like holy fuck bad.

The twist? Fucking dumb. Like I think we are supposed to think it was really clever but it was just ridiculous.
Mariana? Can go fuck herself.
Ryan, the perfect badass hero, getting on the wrong boat? Fucking unbelievable.

It was really no surprise to me that Wicked Intentions was wicked good, my fellow romance book loving friends. Having loved the previous two books in this series, I had high hopes and was still blown away. In fact, it was so wickedly entertaining, I’m not even sure where to begin. Just know from the first page I was completely riveted until the very end.

Mariana, the heroine, made my day with her James Bond type character/appeal and her mission impossible escapades. So super sexy she could pass

You need to be able to accept it and deal with it, same as you deal with the bad. Love is as real as hate. You know how to survive. But that’s not the same as living.” 0 likes
