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, 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?

funny, scary and engaging
The reaction of the heroine when she finds her protege has been dragged into the affair
I like her voice and the way she brings the different characters to life
When she thinks that the hero has lost faith in her, it was sad
The is the first book by this author that I have had. I enjoyed it and will keep my eye out for others.
Both! I laughed and I cried!
Loved this book, I just adored Tabby and Connor! Their banter was hilarious and they were a great couple! The story had some really good twists as well, it was fast paced and kept me hooked from start to finish! I highly recommend this book!
"Even better than book 1 😁"
I enjoyed book one of this series so I had high hopes for this second book and I'm happy to say that I was not disappointed. This book delivers a skillful plot with twists and turns, delightful banter, steamy romance, and suspense. The lead characters (Connor & Tabitha) have a "bantering" chemistry that is endearing and so much fun to watch unfold. It is funny, sexy and very difficult to put down. 😘
I'm glad they stayed with the same narrator for this series so far. She's really done a nice job with this series.👂
Please Note: This book (and series) has a good story but does include descriptive sex scenes and adult language. Adults only recommended!
I would like to thank the author, narrator or publisher for providing me this audio book at no cost in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.😊
"Another great suspenseful romance!"
I absolutely loved this audiobook! The author does an amazing job with this intriguing plot with twists and turns. I could not put it down!
I first met the main characters in her previous book. They are both skilled with the computer! Thabitha is actually a genius computer geek that can hack into any secure place!
Connor owns a private security firm and is an ex marine. Connor is strong, smart, and has excellent self control until he meets the gorgeous genius hacker!
The narration was excellent! Mellissa brought the story to life. I loved the dual POV. I enjoyed their bantering and sexual tension. The twists and turns surprised me and kept me in the edge of my seat.
I can hardly wait to read/listen to another one of this talented writer's books!

"Action, Suspense, and Steamy Romance….."
….. What's not to love!
J.T. Geissinger delivers another awesome story full of witty dialogue, strong sexy characters, steamy chemistry, and a fast paced plot full of suspense and danger! I am quickly becoming a fan of Gissinger's writing style.
Tabitha and Connor made an appearance in the first book, and their first reaction to each other was hate at first sight. Connor's an ex marine who runs a security firm, and Tabitha is a hacker with a past paved in trouble. These two were like oil and water. As they start to work together to track and find the culprit behind the cyber attacks, their battle of the sexes, and banter, become heated, sexual tension, and when they finally give into their passions, it was a match made in heaven.
Melissa Moran's performance was outstanding! I really enjoyed how she portrayed the characters, and all the different emotions throughout the story.

What an intense story that keeps you guessing till the end. You don't know who all the players are and are a bit shocked when you find out. A love story that develops and trust is earned. A great characters. I also had the audio and the narrator was great, bringing the emotion of the characters through.
"A Hello Kitty Lover and a Jarhead Battle it Out"
We met Connor Hughes and Tabitha West in Wicked Beautiful but it isn’t necessary to read that book first (though I’d recommend it because its a good story). Tabitha is one of the best hackers in the world and she has a penchant for Hello Kitty. Connor is a Veteran who owns a very successful security company.
Connor needs Tabitha’s expertise to help a client but she greatly dislikes Connor and doesn’t want to work for him (see book one if you want more information on their history of disdain).
This is an entertaining story, especially the relationship between Tabby and Connor (aka Jarhead as she calls him). Tabby uses her awesome hacking skills to try to help Connor’s client and ends up running across someone from her past, whom she fears. If you have enjoyed other work by J.T. Geissinger then you will want to read this story as well.
The narrator did a decent job, I’d listen to another book read by her but I won’t be seeking her out. I gave her 4 stars but its probably more like 3.5 stars.

JTG is one of my favorite authors. She never fails to deliver a detailed and coherent story. Melissa Moran is a favorite narrator so together, it's this is a no-brainer.
GREAT BIG TWO THUMBS UP!!!!!
I enjoyed this second installment much more than the first, Wicked Beautiful. The plot was more believable, the characters more likable and there was more intrigue. There was plenty of action, which I enjoy in any book. I received this title as a gift from the author, narrator and/or publisher, and am happy to leave my honest review in exchange. I liked the narrator, you can tell that they are good at their job when they don't intrude on the story but bring it to life, and Melissa Moran did just that. I will look for more titles by this author/narrator combo!
It's one of my favorites! It had just the right amount of humor, romance and mystery to make it a really fun book.
When Connor goes all caveman on Tabby...love an alpha male!
Yes, I've listened to her books before. She's once again shown she is one of the few that can pull off dual povs by herself.
It was, I really wanted to get to the bottom of the Soren situation. Plus the banter between Conner and Tabby was hilarious!

"I loved this book and all its craziness!"
This book was awesome such a great story with a different twist on girl empowerment. I loved how Jarhead and Princess finally fell for each other and how he saved her. I this one was way better Wicked Beautiful and I reallt liked that one. These books really push women empowerment and strength and show how it doesn't make you weak. Loved this book. I was given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion.
I wasn't crazy about book 1, but LOVED this one. The story was tighter and much more interesting. I liked both of the main characters and found it easy to see what they loved about each other. I was hooked from the first minute or two and never zoned out or lost interest for even a second. Some of the twists and turns were bizarre, but in a good way.
I definitely recommend this one.
