**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

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

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.

This is an awesome series… my type of books. This book has everything. It is emotional, hot and funny. My kind of emotional. My kind of hot. And my kind of funny. There is intelligent and fun banter wrapped up in vulnerable sweetness and nuclear chemistry. Yum. It is also a bit action-packed. The book balances everything, the emotions, the steam, the hum

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!

3.5 STARS!
"Love is as real as hate. Trust is as real as hunger. You know how to survive. But that's not the same things as living."
Wicked Intentions contained flashes of signature JTG brilliance, but ultimately this one fell a bit flat for me.

I'll start with the positives:

There were moments when the banter between Ryan and Mariana sparkled . . .
"So don't be sweet, and don't be observant. You want a clueless asshole, is that it?"

“I stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago.”
Ryan takes my face in his hands. “Maybe they didn’t stop believin’ in you,”

“When sizing up a potential mark, a thief of any intelligence must answer one crucial question before committing to the job.
Is the risk worth the reward?”

Well, Mariana sized him up alright, and he was not found wanting.......🍆🍆😂😂

Anyway, Mariana needs to steal something and Ryan is an obstacle in the path of that goal.

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

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.

I am a freaking MESS after reading this! Wicked Intentions is definitely my favorite book by J.T. Geissinger to date. I loved this series and I knew she would not disappoint with the conclusion. But, holy moly! What an emotional ending! Ryan and Mariana's story was just perfect. Full of back and forth, sexual tension, suspense, burning chemistry and a whole array of feelings.

This couple has stolen my heart, both are just incredible characters, so different from each ot

This one is a 3.5 rounded up because the writing is intelligent and there aren't any glaring errors.

BUT, despite the delicious cover (I want to lick it) - the story just wasn't as engrossing as book 1 (before the anti-climax) and certainly not book 2. Maybe I'm getting numbed to this author's writing style. It would be nice if her heroines didn't all blend into the same personality, as well as her Heroes.

She could have taken a different tack with Mariana - someone more cosmopolitan, more femme

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

★★ 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 ch

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

What a fantastic series......bravo...... my applause goes to the author........every one was a winner.......
I ADORE YOU, J.T. Geissinger!!!

I can highly recommend reading any and all of this author's works-this series, especially!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

"We're creatures of the underworld, my darling. We have no business in the dealings of heroes."

Best in the series, maybe the best in ALL her series, this was so freakin gooooood!! Mariana is one of my fav heroines of all time, she's such a goddamn badass, has overcome so much and emerged stronger from it. I loved her balance between soft and hard, cynical and hopeful, tactical and passionate.

He's a wolf in sheep's clothing. This one has a taste for blood. Which brings me back to my original
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!

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

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. ...more
