**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 series has been thoroughly entertaining and this book certainly did not disappoint! A kick-ass hero AND a kick-ass heroine? Yes, please!

➦When these two badasses meet at a resort, they know they are both lying to each other about who they are but they both play their little game.

➦She wants to be in his hotel room because, well, it's very conveniently located. She has a job to do and she never fails. Because she's a most wanted thief! She will stop at nothing even if it means seducing this

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,

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

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

★★ 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 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.

Okay, who loves a dirty talking, sexy southern charmer of a man?! well, if you do then THIS is the book for you *fans self* I have to say, I'm kinda a little in love with Ryan McLean myself! *swoooooon* Truth be told, everything about this book was swoon-worthy! It was exciting and addictive. I read the story in one sitting and was so into it that I forgot to take notes so I had to go back and skim for my review notes!

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 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'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.

When she marks Ryan, ex-Marine and security operator alongside Connor fr

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.

The story starts Ryan, an ex-special ops agent now security expert was bested by Mariama a
***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

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

I love heist movies, all of them. So, when I read this was a romance based around a jewel heist, I was all in.

And, it was as fun as I thought it was going to be. There were a couple of places where I thought the story was a bit of a stretch (although I think this happens in most heist stories) it was fun, fast paced and engaging overall.

Ryan and Mariana have the kind of chemistry that you believe would lead them to forgive one another fo

This is the third book in the Wicked Games series. The books can be read as stand alones but the characters interact with those from the previous books. This one had all the elements of a classic Pink Panther movie to me! S3xy Thief, bumbling police trying to catch her, undercover agent hot on her tail. The only added plus was the hot romance!

The story felt familiar yet it was a fun read. Lots of great humor sprinkled throughout. Ryan stole the show with his southern charm and manners. Mariana
As one sometimes does, I really delayed reading this book until I had no option but to.

Ryan is an ex-marine, 34, now in security. Mariana is the thief of expensive antiques working under the Italian mafia. Clearly, both are formidable intellectuals who engage in a lot of verbal sparring.

However, I felt the generation of Mariana's character was clearly over the top. She's cultured, vulnerable, fierce, duplicitous but never once fooled him. It felt a bit silly. Her character was about the fetish

This series has just been spot on - the right mix of steam, funny, edge, sweet, action and characters that I wanna hug. Geissinger takes the alpha-male schtick and makes it palatable for readers who want a woman who saves herself. I love a strong man, but there's nothing sexier in a book than a woman who knows who she is and kicks ass. That's a heroine with whom I can connect - it makes me feel seen by the reading community.

Literally, as I was reading this, I thought of Ryan.

he's hot

But a beefier, stockier, tattooed version of him:

Minus the long hair, but you know what I mean, right?

JT Geissinger got me laughing; like, literally, feeling all the feels 'coz of hot, sensitive, alpha-male, funny, sexy Ryan. Too bad he's a figment of Ms. Geissinger's imagination. One that coincides very, very well with mine, I might add.

Me at the end of every scene with Ryan:

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
