Review of Wicked Intentions

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 characters being total badasses, which is why I believe it was so impactful and alluring.

Wicked Intentions Summary

Mariana has been a thief almost all of her life, as circumstances have forced her to steal to survive.  Trust isn’t a word in her vocabulary and she doesn’t do one-night stands.  

When a job requires her to seduce a gorgeously cocky yet dangerous Marine, Mariana is forced to admit that there is way more than meets the eye with this guy.

Ryan is security expert with a genius IQ, but he uses his Southern charm to throw off his opponents.  He works for an elite security agency and saves people on a regular basis.  

One look at Mariana and he knows that she isn’t who she claims to be, but it doesn’t matter to Ryan. He’s a goner where she is concerned. 

Surprisingly Emotional Romantic Suspense

What I loved most about this book was the element of the chase.  Ryan doggedly pursues Mariana from the beginning to the very end.  He makes up his mind that she is the one and he never gives up, no matter what is thrown at them.  

Ryan is a Kristen Ashley-level alpha and he isn’t afraid to show it.  His wit and humor help to keep the angst low and offset the darker aspects of this story.  

Mariana isn’t lacking in the badass department, either.  She’s fiercely independent and loyal to a fault.  I liked her spunkiness, her smarts, and her will to stay alive. 

Geissinger’s writing is top-notch and I believe more people need to be reading her books.  I have so many beautiful passages highlighted on my Kindle, something you might never expect from a romantic suspense/action thriller.  

If you haven’t picked up this series, I highly recommend it.  I don’t think you will be disappointed!

With a storyline steeped in intrigue, secrets, lies, action, smarts, and HEAT, Wicked Intentions by JT Geissinger is a roller-coaster ride from beginning to end!

In the Caribbean for his best friend’s wedding, ex special-ops officer Ryan McLean meets a beautiful woman in the hotel bar. Their connection is immediate and intense, and they spend a passionate night together with pleasure as their only goal.

But when Ryan wakes the following morning to discover the beautiful woman vanished–along with millions worth of jewels from the safe of the Saudi prince staying next door–he realizes he was duped. He becomes determined to find the mystery woman and bring her to justice…if only he could forget how explosive their chemistry was.

A notorious thief known as the Dragonfly, Mariana has only more more job to do until she can retire, but the sexy-as-hell Marine she spent one sultry tropical night with is hot on her heels at every turn. She has to outwit him to stay out of jail, but fighting their magnetic attraction soon becomes a game neither one of them can resist.

When Mariana’s last job goes dangerously wrong and she needs Ryan’s help to survive, he has to decide if their game of cat and mouse is only a game, or if he can trust this beautiful thief with something no woman has ever stolen: his heart.
