ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date October 17, 2017

The marriage is fake. But for a sassy chef and an arrogant billionaire, the sparks are real…

Jackson “The Beast” Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick’s New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fund-raiser, Bianca can’t refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother’s medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum—money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract—and a stunning ring.

The heir to a family bourbon dynasty, Jackson knows the rumors swirling around him. The truth is even darker. Still, he needs a wife to secure his inheritance, and free-spirited, sassy Bianca would play the part beautifully. Soon, though, their simple business deal evolves into an emotional intimacy he’s built walls to avoid.

As the passion heats up between them, Bianca and Jackson struggle to define which feelings are real and which are for show. Is falling for your fake fiancé the best happy ending…or a recipe for disaster?

•••••••••

REVIEW: BURN FOR YOU is the first installment in JT Geissinger’s contemporary, adult SLOW BURN erotic, romance series. This is heir to the Boudreaux Bourbon dynasty Jackson ‘The Beast’ Boudreaux, and New Orleans’ chef Bianca Hardwick’s story line. A number of the chapters begin with a series of Cajun/Creole recipes that look as yummy as our story line hero sounds.

Told from dual first person points of view (Bianca and Jackson) BURN FOR YOU follows the fake engagement between New Orleans’ chef Bianca Hardwick, and heir to the Kentucky Boudreaux Bourbon dynasty Jackson Boudreaux. Jackson is desperate: the caterer and chef he hired quit just two weeks before the fund raiser for the Wounded Warrior Project; and Jackson is about to loose access to billions of dollars unless he agrees to marry before he turns thirty-five. There is only one other option-an option Jackson refuses to acknowledge-fearing the demons from his past will continue to rear their guilt-ridden heads. Enter Bianca Hardwick, restaurant owner and chef, and the woman with whom Jackson will fall in love. What ensues is the fake but building relationship between Jackson and Bianca, and the fall out when Bianca is no longer in need of a million-dollar payout.

Bianca Hardwick works hard but her mother’s illness is costing our heroine thousands of dollars she does not have. Nearing the end of her available cash the surly but beautiful, Jackson Boudreaux makes Bianca an offer she cannot refuse-five years to play along and become Jackson’s wife in return for a one million dollar price.

The relationship between Jackson and Bianca begins acrimoniously. Jackson’s gruff exterior and lack of social manners pushes all of Bianca’s buttons and more. But Jackson hides a dark past of secrets and shame- secrets that once revealed will bring about forgiveness and acceptance from the people he cares about most. The $ex scenes are limited but intimate and intense, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.

We are introduced to Bianca’s employees including Pepper the hostess; sous chef Ambrosine aka Eeny; pastry chef Hoyt, Bianca’s ex-husband Trace; her ailing mother Davina Hardwick, and her mother’s ‘boyfriend’ aka the Colonel. Jackson’s circle of friends is limited to his assistant Rayford and little man Cody, but we will come face to face with his parents Brig and Clemmy Boudreaux.

BURN FOR YOU has moments of heartbreak and grief; truth and acceptance; falling in love and letting go of the past. The premise is engaging and encouraging; the characters are broken, colorful and intense; the romance is seductive and provocative. BURN FOR YOU looks at one man’s struggle with the past, and one woman’s battle for the future.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date July 11, 2017

Ex special-ops officer and security expert Ryan McLean is getting a much-needed vacation. In the Caribbean for his best friend’s wedding, his plans include nothing more strenuous than working on his tan. But when he 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.

Until Ryan wakes the following morning to discover the beautiful woman has vanished, along with millions worth of jewels from the safe of the Saudi prince staying in the suite next door. Realizing he was duped, Ryan becomes determined to find the mystery woman and bring her to justice. If only he could forget how explosive their chemistry was, how her kisses drove him wild like no other woman before.

A notorious thief known to authorities only as the Dragonfly, Mariana Lora only has one more score to settle until she can retire, but the sexy-as-hell Marine she spent one explosive 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 Connor’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.

•••••••

REVIEW: WICKED INTENTIONS is the third installment in JT Geissinger’s contemporary, adult WICKED GAMES erotic, romance series. This is security expert, mercenary, and ex special-ops officer Ryan McLean, and thief Mariana Lora’s story line. WICKED INTENTIONS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary.

Told from dual first person points of view (Ryan and Mariana) WICKED INTENTIONS follows Mariana Lora-a world renowned, international thief known as the Dragonfly-as she endeavors to complete her latest assignment. Falling for Ryan McLean was never in the cards-Ryan is Mariana’s ticket to access millions of dollars in royal jewels-jewels that are going to pay off a debt and protect someone our heroine loves. But little does Mariana know that the man she has marked to gain access to the jewels, is a former special-ops officer who specializes in security and is all too aware that Mariana is hiding the truth about the who and what of her Caribbean vacation. What ensues is Ryan’s hunt for the truth, and Mariana’s struggle to break free of a debt that will never be paid.

Mariana is desperate to protect someone she loves but a debt owed finds our heroine risking not only her life but also the life of someone back home. Trying to keep her true identity a secret is next to impossible when the former special ops agent suspects not all is right in her world. Mariana’s backstory is heartbreaking and dark.

Ryan McLean’s Caribbean vacation just got a whole lot more interesting meeting the sultry and sexy woman whose secrets and lies push all of his over protective and alpha buttons. Ryan isn’t going to let go of the woman that calls to his heart but searching for Mariana becomes a little more complicated when the truth is revealed. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. Mariana has but one rule-never to sleep with a mark- and Ryan’s presence will obliterate all sense for our story line heroine.

The secondary and supporting characters include Metrix Security staff Connor and Tabitha (Wicked Sexy #2), Darcy and Kai, and fifteen year old genius Juanita, as well as Mariana’s friend and father figure Reynard, and crime boss Vincent Moreno. There is plenty of back and forth friendly banter between the Metrix group members.

WICKED INTENTIONS has moments of humor and fun, danger, action and suspense, romance and love. The premise is intriguing and entertaining; the romance is seductive and passionate; the characters are colorful, dynamic and realistic-the friendships are fun and loving.

Amazon.com / Amazon.ca / B&N / BAM /

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date April 25, 2017

The past she can’t remember. The secret he hides. And a love that’s worth risking it all.

After a devastating car crash stole both her family and her memory, Grace Stanton was left with no past and an uncertain future. Now Grace likes to keep things simple. No sleepovers, never date a guy more than a month, and never, ever fall in love. Which is exactly why Grace avoids Bad Habit’s lead guitarist, Brody Scott, at all costs. The green-eyed, sexy-as-hell musician has “trouble” tattooed all over him, and Grace isn’t taking any chances with her heart.

Brody knows he doesn’t deserve an amazing woman like Grace—her creamy skin, red hair, or that smart mouth that fuels his every fantasy—but there’s something between them that’s more than chemistry. Something real. He’ll just have to convince Grace that he’s worth the risk—and hide the secret that haunts his worst dreams. But when fate plays a cruel hand, Brody’s darkest sin suddenly threatens his last chance at redemption…and the life of the woman he loves.

•••••••••

REVIEW: SIN WITH ME is the third installment in J.T.Geissinger’s contemporary adult BAD HABIT erotic, romance series focusing in the member of the rock band Bad Habit. This is lead guitarist Brody Scott, and psychologist Grace Stanton’s story line. SIN WITH ME can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but I recommend reading the series in order for backstory, history and cohesion as many events in the current time line build upon events of the previous books.

Told from dual first person perspectives (Grace and Brody) SIN WITH ME is an intense story of heartbreak, secrets, healing and moving forward. Years earlier, at the age of eighteen, Grace Stanton’s world exploded. A hit and run driver killed her parents, leaving our heroine with no memory of the past including her name, her parents and the events leading up to the crash. Fast forward to present day and Grace Stanton, a couple’s counselor, is a woman afraid to commit beyond the present. Enter lead guitarist for the rock band Bad Habit Brody Scott, and the man who will steal Grace’s heart, and destroy all semblance of peace and hope for out story line heroine.

SIN WITH ME follows the building relationship between Grace Stanton, and Brody Scott. Brody’s attraction to Grace is hindered by Grace’s inability to commit fearing the possibility compounded memory loss that includes the loss of everything she worked hard to attain. Brody sets out to seduce our story line heroine, coming to the rescue when Grace loses everything in her life. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive. The back and forth banter between our leading couple is humorous and entertaining.

The secondary and supporting characters include Kat and Nico (Sweet as Sin #1), and Chloe and AJ (Make Me Sin #2), Kenji the ‘flamboyant’ friends, as well as security specialist Barney, keyboardist Ethan and bassist Chris. Barney is leaving the band to pursue a career with a high-level security outfit known as Metrix, and I am going to surmise a spin-off series in the future.

The world building looks at the growing family, friendship and relationships between the members of Bad Habit. There is a twist to the story line that I saw coming, early on although it did not affect my enjoyment of the story.

SIN WITH ME is an emotional, erotic, palpable, intense and fated story. Grace’s past comes full circle while Brody’s dark secrets will destroy any hope for a happily ever after. The premise is startling, powerful and dramatic; the romance is provocative and emotional; the characters are animated, colorful and tragic. SIN WITH ME is a moving, wondrous, and riveting story line.

excerpt

 

 

Like fingers interlacing, several things slowly come together and fit into place.
“You could fall in love with me and not remember it?” I whisper.
She swallows and nods.
Dumbfounded, I stare at her. “Holy fuck.”
Looking miserable, she nods again. She tries to pull away but I don’t let her. I put my arms around her and squeeze.
She resists for what feels like forever, stiff and uncomfortable in my arms, but then slowly she gives in. She melts against me with a sigh, tucks her face into the space between my neck and shoulder, and winds her arms around my waist.
We stand like that for a while, not talking, feeling the chaotic beating of each other’s hearts. Her hair smells like sunshine. She’s soft and warm against me, lush and feminine. My dick is still wrestling for control with my brain, which is in a state of shock and is just sitting there lifelessly inside my skull like a big lump of cheese.
And suddenly I realize what a gift I’m being offered.
I can never right the wrongs of the past, no matter how desperately I might want to. But maybe those wrongs aren’t the end of the story. Maybe they’re only a new beginning.
If I’m going to do good by her, this is a fucking fantastic place to start.
My voice gruff, I say, “I’m in.”
She pulls away and looks at me, a little furrow between her brows. “What?”
“I said I’m in. Fuck it. If I can make you fall in love with me once, I can make you fall in love with me again and again. Every day if I have to.”
Grace blanches. “The Egosaurus rides again. I’m not in love with you!”
“But you will be,” I vow, looking at her dead-on. “Because I’m not gonna leave you any other choice.”
I plunge my hands into her hair, grip her head, pull her toward me, and fit my mouth against hers.
It’s like the Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve and Christmas morning, all rolled into one.
Heat. Color. Noise. Fireworks behind my eyes. She moans into my mouth, digs her nails into my back, arches against me. I moan, too, fucking her luscious mouth with my tongue, one hand behind her neck and the other roaming all over her body, learning her shape, the dip of her waist, the full, tight curve of her ass.
It’s greedy.
It’s scorching.
It’s everything.
If there were a Guinness World Record for the most amazing, mind-blowing, cock-stiffening, heart-pounding, panty-melting, burn-down-the-house kiss, we’d win that motherfucker hands down.
We’re both breathing hard, desperate, mindless, lost. The kiss goes on and on, until I’m drunk on her. I’m flying. I’m melting. I’m—
Someone loudly clears his throat.
Stunned and reeling, Grace and I break apart.
Nico stands in the kitchen doorway with his hands on his hips, grinning like an idiot. “Hiya, kids,” he drawls. “What’re you two squirrels up to?”
Flushed and trembling, Grace lifts a hand to her lips. She lets out a short, astonished laugh and cuts her gaze to me.
I can’t talk either. My mouth can’t form any coherent words. I just stand there, dumb as a rock, my mind blank, my shorts tented, staring at Grace like I’ve spent my entire life up to this point living in a dark cave, surviving on worms and insects, and she just walked in with candles and flowers and a big fucking steak on a hot plate.
“Uhh . . .”
Nico bursts out laughing.
“I’ll just go see what Kat’s up to.” Grace’s voice is high and shaky. She bolts from the room.
“Just wanted to let you know a few people are starting to show up.” Nico glances at the front of my shorts and chuckles. “So, uh, you might want to pull yourself together, brother.”
Shaken to my core, I sag against the counter, gripping it hard for support, and let out a ragged breath. “Jesus. Is that what it’s like for you with Kat? That feeling like you’re . . .”
“Free-falling?” Nico supplies when I can’t find the right word. “High flying? Completely out of control?”
When I look up at him, he nods. “Yeah, brother. It is. At the beginning. And then it gets so much deeper and so much better, there aren’t any words for it at all.” His eyes—bright, cobalt-blue eyes that made him famous—pierce me. “But be careful. Because once you get on that speeding train, you can’t get off. Even if it jumps the tracks, crashes into a nuclear power plant, and burns the whole world to the ground.”
He gives me one long, last look and then turns around and leaves.
From somewhere very far off, I hear the sound of my demon laughing.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date July 19, 2016

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 intent on taking down one of his clients, 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?

•••••••••••

REVIEW: WICKED SEXY is the second installment in J.T. Geissinger’s fantastic contemporary, adult WICKED GAMES erotic, romantic suspense series. This is security specialist Connor Hughes, and IT whiz Tabitha West’s story line. WICKED SEXY can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Tabby and Connor were first introduced to the reader in book one Wicked Beautiful.

Told from dual first person perspectives (Connor and Tabby) WICKED SEXY focuses on the hunt for a cyber criminal intent on destroying business woman and movie mogul Miranda Lawson. When Miranda hires security specialist and former special ops agent Connor Hughes, she demands that he bring in smart mouthed, IT genius Tabitha West to aid in the investigation and take down of the internet hacker known only as Maelstrom. What ensues is a set up involving many branches of the US government, and the building relationship between Connor and Tabitha- a relationship fraught with heated tension, secrets and a palpable sexual energy.

The relationship between Connor and Tabby begins acrimoniously. Tabby wants nothing to do with the strong, alpha, and smart security specialist, mercenary and former Marine but her attraction to Connor is off the charts. Their back and forth, yin and yang bickering and innuendo is fast paced and filled with verbal sexual foreplay, tension and banter. Connor has wanted Tabby since the first time they met; Tabby does her best to push Connor out of her life and in doing so becomes the bait to pull in the cyber attacker. The $ex scenes are erotic, intimate and intense.

We are introduced to a number of secondary and supporting characters including several members of the NSA and FBI. Connor’s best friend Ryan T. McLean is a man determined to protect Connor’s back and his heart. I am hoping JT writes a story for Ryan McLean.

WICKED SEXY is an amazing and fascinating story with many twist and turns; an intriguing, well developed and researched tale of cyber crime and internet technology in the hands of a psychotic genius. Tabitha’s past is heartbreaking-so many losses but it is the true nature and extent of the losses that add another layer onto the ever mounting hoard of secrets from the past. The premise is incredible and moving; the characters are passionate, dynamic and intense; the romance is provocative and explosive. J. T. Geissinger is a phenomenal author whose writing with captive your imagination, leaving your breathless and wanting more.

excerpt

 

For a moment Connor just examines my face in silence. There’s a strange tension in him, a stillness, like a held breath but in his entire body. Then he abruptly swings around in his seat so he’s facing me, his massive thighs on either side of my bar stool, his booted feet planted on the floor.Trapping me.“What do you think you’re doing?” I ask, my voice high with panic.“Got something to say to you. It’s important, so don’t talk until the end.”He looks dangerously intense. His dark eyes are heated, drilling into mine. His cheeks are flushed from the fire, or from something else, but I don’t have time to think about what that something else might be because he opens his mouth and starts to speak, and my brain faints dead away, leaving me to fend for myself.“I want you. Bad. Don’t know exactly why, you’re a complete pain in my ass and pretty much the most contrary, foul-tempered woman I’ve ever met, and you’ve made it really clear what you think about me, but every time I look at you I have an almost overpowering urge to touch you, kiss you, do a lot of bad things to you, and I don’t know how to manage it. Yeah, it might be more prudent for me to keep this shit to myself, but I know that when you don’t talk about shit it festers, gets worse, and if the way I feel about you gets any worse I won’t be able to put my goddamn shoes on in the morning. So I’m putting it out there.”He takes a breath. Deeply shocked, I stare at him with my mouth open, my heart up in my throat.“We’re both professionals. We have a job to do. And I don’t mix business with pleasure. Ever. But the way I figure it, we’ve got one more night until the work actually starts, and if I don’t do something to get you straight in my head I won’t be able to do the job at all.”He stops abruptly. Then he waits, watching me with unwavering intensity as I attempt to digest what just happened.I whisper in disbelief, “You’re propositioning me?”His gaze drops to my lips. When he looks back into my eyes, his own are burning. “You liked that kiss.”He gives me time to deny it, but I don’t. How could I? We both know I’d be lying.He adds, “And you called me hot, so I know you don’t think I’m a complete troll, even though you act like you do.”“That was an accident.”“Yep.” He nods. “And you fuckin’ hated yourself for it. Which is why I know it was true.”Things are happening in my body. My nipples harden, my breath quickens, there is a distinctive throb and ache between my legs. All because this jarhead I hate just told me he wants to do bad things to me.Bad things. Dear God, were any two sexier words ever spoken?

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date December 1, 2015

Life coach and best-selling author Victoria Price has it all: a successful career, fabulous friends, a fantastic penthouse in Manhattan. What she doesn’t have—and doesn’t want—is a husband. Fifteen years ago her high school flame broke her heart so badly she swore she’d never love again. Now she makes millions teaching other women how to be just like her: a ruthless bitch.

Drop-dead sexy restaurateur and infamous playboy Parker Maxwell has only three rules for the women he dates: no questions about his past, no expectations for the future, and no spending the night. When he meets Victoria, however, he’s willing to break his own rules if it means sating the explosive desire she arouses in him. What he doesn’t know is that the alluring Victoria Price used to be the mousy Isabel Diaz, the girl he deflowered and dumped long ago.

Presented with a perfect opportunity for revenge, Victoria decides the game is on. But when her connection with Parker proves more than just skin deep, she has to make a choice: continue with her plan for payback, or risk her career, her reputation, and her heart by taking a second chance on love?

•••••••••••••••

REVIEW: WICKED BEAUTIFUL by J. T. Geissinger is a story about revenge, heartbreak, seduction and second chances. Fifteen years earlier, a then seventeen year old Parker Maxwell walked away from the only woman he would ever love. Fast forward to present day, where the now billionaire playboy finds he has lost his heart, once again, to a woman he barely knows but finds oddly familiar. Enter Victoria Price-a successful, man eating, life coach and best selling author whose own secrets are the stuff of tabloid headlines and heartbreaking sorrow. Together Parker and Victoria are dynamite, but apart, Victoria is setting up Parker for the biggest take down in the history of betrayal and revenge.

Told from dual first person perspectives (Parker and Victoria) WICKED BEAUTIFUL is an intense look at two people whose lives were destroyed by bigotry, hatred, secrets and lies. The complexity of the characters is deep; their pasts are the sum total of who they are, and where they want to go. Victoria’s need to destroy all men comes from a past riddled with heartbreak and betrayal; she calls herself the Queen B-Queen Bitch-and hopes all women take control back from the men in their lives. Parker has spent his life making amends for the sins of the past, and the loss of the girl who had stolen his heart.

The sexual tension between Victoria and Parker is tight and intense. Victoria is determined to destroy all that Parker is, while Parker intends to seduce the woman who calls to his heart. The banter and verbal foreplay is electric, animated and spirited. The persona of Victoria hides a multitude of secrets, dark promises and a dramatic flair for in your face honesty and retaliation. The storyline conflict finds Victoria as the aggressor; the perpetrator of hate and revenge; and the woman who is unable to handle the truth when the truth is finally revealed. Walls will be broken; ice will be shattered; lives will crumble and fall.

J. T. Geissinger’s WICKED BEAUTIFUL’s ensemble cast of characters including Victoria’s best friends and her PA are the perfect foil for Victoria’s overwhelming penchant for revenge. Darcy, the food critic, finds herself oddly attracted to an anal retentive chef; and Tabby, Victoria’s PA, whose IT wizardry is matched only by Parker’s security specialist, and former special ops soldier Connor Hughes.

WICKED BEAUTIFUL is a seductive storyline; a well written tale about revenge and second chances; forgiveness and acceptance; revealing the truth and moving forward. The characters are charismatic, dynamic and impassioned; the romance is heartbreaking, destructive and powerful; the happily ever after wraps up a little too quickly-I wish there was more. And I did have an issue with the stereotype ‘bitch’ used as a generalization against all aggressive and successful women: the archetype sets women’s issues back a few years when the glass ceiling was set higher and completely unobtainable.

And just to add a little humor, did anyone else notice the doorman’s name?? Sound familiar??

Wicked Beautiful Teaser

Q&A

Tell us about Wicked Beautiful.
My editor called it a “revenge rom-com” and I think that’s a perfect description. It’s a story of a woman, Victoria Price, who decides to get revenge on an old flame who royally screwed her over years ago. What ensues is a very hot, twist-filled, and funny cat-and-mouse game between two smart, stubborn and sexy people. It’s set in Manhattan, one of my favorite cities in the world.

You’re known for your intense, dark romances. What made you decide to write a romantic comedy?
I’d just completed Make Me Sin, the second book in my rockstar romance Bad Habit series; it’s the most emotionally devastating book I’d ever written, and I was wrung out. I wanted to write a lighter, stand-alone romance. Wicked Beautiful is my tenth novel, and was the most fun I’ve ever had writing a book. I can’t wait for readers to meet Victoria and Parker, and watch the sparks fly.

Tell us about Victoria, the heroine.
Victoria is a powerhouse, fierce and unapologetic, yet with a tender underbelly she ruthlessly protects. She’s a survivor, an underprivileged ugly duckling who by sheer force of will transformed herself into a very successful swan. She’s funny, smart, and self-confident, so watching her grapple with the opposing desires of revenge and lust for Parker Maxwell, our hero, is fantastic. Their interactions are explosive.

Speaking of Parker, what can we expect from him?
He’s Victoria’s match in every way: driven, successful, and used to being in control and getting whatever he wants. He loves a good battle of wits as much as Victoria does, but soon realizes their intense game might cost him more than just his heart. He’s a gambler, though, and definitely up for the challenge. It was such a pleasure to write about this sexy heartbreaker, and the femme fatale who brings him to his knees.

Sweet as Sin (Bad Habit #1) by J.T.Geissinger-a review

SWEET AS SIN (Bad Habit #1) by J. T. Geissinger-a review

Sweet As Sin

Amazon.com / Amazon.ca / B&N /

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date July 14, 2015

Twentysomething Kat Reid is loving life as an in-demand Hollywood makeup artist. She has absolutely no interest in rock ’n’ roll, but in order to pay the mortgage, she agrees to work on the set of a rock video for the world-famous rockers known as Bad Habit…which brings her face-to-face with Nico Nyx, lead singer of Bad Habit and Adonis in the flesh.

However, the fiercely independent Kat isn’t impressed by the hard-living, womanizing rock star. But when Nico’s model girlfriend shows up to the set drunk and Kat is tapped to replace her as the video’s sexy bride, her combustible chemistry with Nico suddenly threatens to consume the set. Nico feels it, too—and becomes determined to win Kat over, body and soul. Yet behind his rock god swagger, Nico hides a dark secret. Can he rock Kat’s world forever, or will he just break her heart?

••••••••••••

REVIEW: SWEET AS SIN is the first installment in J.T.Geissinger’s adult, contemporary BAD HABIT rocker romance series focusing on the rock band Bad Habit. This is lead singer and songwriter Nico Nyx, and makeup artist Kat Reid’s storyline.

Told from first person point of view (Kat) the storyline focuses on the tempestuous and insta-lust/love relationship between Kat and rock superstar Nico Nyx. Kat and Nico met on the set of Bad Habit’s latest video and the connection was immediate. Kat was hired as the make up artist but found herself defending Nico’s intoxicated ‘sometime girlfriend’ Avery Kane. What ensues is Nico’s pursuit of a reluctant Kat; and the fall out of too many lies, secrets and Nico’s intense and overwhelming need for Kat Reid. A good portion of the storyline finds Kat and Nico trying to negotiate between one another’s insecurities, and need for reassurance and affirmation. Jealousy, rivalry and a lack of trust are constant sources of turmoil and turbulence.

Nico and Kat are two broken souls whose past lives are filled with abuse, betrayal, and pain, and in this their ability to trust is non-existent. Nico keeps secret his history, revealing only what he wants Kat to know and in this Kat is unable to build the trust she requires to hand over her heart to the man with whom she is falling in love. The backstory is heartbreaking and reveals slowly over the course of the storyline but in doing so begins to build a wall between our leading couple.

SWEET AS SIN is a storyline with a large ensemble cast of characters including the members of the rock band Bad Habit. We are introduced to stylist Kenji; Nico’s head of security and best friend Barney; and Michael-Nico’s brother and a man whose past is darker than most. Kat’s support system comes via her two besties: Grace-a psychologist whose own history is a question mark but her ‘dislike’ of men finds Kat questioning everything about the man with whom she is falling in love; and Chloe-a local florist who may or may not have something for Nico’s bandmate AJ. AJ is a bit of a conundrum as his acerbic personality and contempt towards Chloe is nothing short of rude and abusive.

There is plenty of lighthearted humor between Kat, Grace and Chloe. The three best friends tell it like it is but in doing so never seem to upset the balance of their friendship. But there are also dark and dangerous moments as Kat and Nico face their fears, their pasts, and the truth. Secrets will be revealed; hearts will be broken; someone close will never again see the light of day. The requisite evil wants to ensure that Nico’s soul will be destroyed for all eternity. The disquietude and angst of the storyline is a roller coaster of emotional push and pull; the turmoil is a never ending path that is a constant source of worry and unease. I had to wonder if Kat and Nico would ever find their ‘happily ever after.’ When Nico’s past catches up Kat will be targeted in a game of cat and mouse.

J. T. Geissinger writes a gritty tale of family and friends; heartbreak and betrayal; love and a happily ever after. The premise is engaging and suspenseful; the characters animated, charismatic and passionate; the romance intense and emotional. The destructive nature of jealousy, rivalry and addiction reveals a traumatic history, and a disturbing past; one that will be difficult to overcome when secrets are kept hidden in the dark.

Amazon.com / Amazon.ca / Amazon.uk/ Barnes and Noble / The Book Depository

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date October 21, 2014

When an incident at work triggers her astonishing powers, she becomes the target of an international manhunt. Only one person can save her: Magnus, the enigmatic stranger haunting her dreams.

•••••••••••••••••

REVIEW: INTO DARKNESS is the sixth and final installment in JT Geissinger’s adult, dystopian Night Prowler paranormal, romance series focusing on a shape shifting panther species known as the Ikati. Each full-blooded Ikati is blessed (or cursed) with a special ability. Some are telepathic, able to shift into mist; shift into other animals and others can walk through walls. Anyone betraying their secrets are punished by death but the Ikati have been targeted for annihilation by the humans. This is hunter and Ikati Alpha Magnus and Lumina Bohn’s storyline.

The focus of the storyline fast forwards the series approximately twenty five years into the future. Following the ‘Flash’ which most humans believed all but destroyed the world, the Ikati numbers have been decimated through discrimination, abuse, torture and death. With the Ikati queen having been held in prison for almost a quarter of a century, and her mate missing and presumed dead, Magnus is a man determined to discover the whereabouts of the remaining members of his species. Enter Lumina Bohn, a young woman adopted by human parents who kept secret Lumina’s true identity. Lumina is one of the most powerful Ikati in existence but revealing Lumina’s true heritage has placed a larger target on the Ikati species.

INTO DARKNESS is a richly detailed storyline woven through an apocalyptic nightmare. The ‘Flash’ and its’ after affects has created a world dominated by man and one man in particular believes himself to be of ‘god-like’ power. As the Ikati struggle to survive in a world that views anything different as an abomination, Lumina must come to accept that she will be the savior of her kind.

The relationship between Lumina and Magnus is one that began in the mind-walking into one another’ dreams, our couple have known one another for years but it is only with the recent revelations and her discovery that our couple will physically meet –in the flesh. Magnus is a man whose heart and body have been destroyed by the humans who left a beaten and tortured young man scarred for life.

JT Geissinger’s NIGHT PROWLER series a passionate and startling look at a species destroyed by misunderstanding, misconception, specieism and discrimination-similar in premise to Hitler and Nazi Germany, we find the Ikati stripped of their autonomy, their individually and their freedom. To live is to exist; to exist is to hide who and what they are; to hide is a failure to live. The cycle is vicious; the abuse and experimentation are rampant and in the end, the humans will be more like the Ikati than they had ever thought possible.

INTO DARKNESS is a wondrous, exciting and revealing conclusion to JT Geissinger’s passionate Night Prowler series. There are heartbreaking moments, startling realizations and an intense need for revenge for a species who have all but been destroyed by the fear of the unknown and the differences brought about by DNA. JT Geissinger is an amazing story teller whose world of the Ikati is compelling, captivating and startling familiar.

About The Author Black and Red

JT Geissinger PIcJ.T. Geissinger’s debut novel, Shadow’s Edge, was published in 2012 and was a #1 Amazon US and UK bestseller in fantasy romance and romance series. She has been nominated for the prestigious RITA® award from the Romance Writers of America for best paranormal romance for her second book in the Night Prowler series, Edge of Oblivion.

A life-long lover of reading and a self-professed “book addict,” she didn’t realize her dream of writing a novel until a milestone birthday forced her to take stock of her goals in life. Always believing the right time to commit to putting pen to paper would magically announce itself, it took waking up one cold January morning with a shiny new zero as the second number in her age to kick start her determination.

Starting on that very day, she wrote what would become Shadow’s Edge in a little over four months and submitted it to several literary agents. Nothing happened. Thinking that was the end of that but by no means willing to give up on her dreams of being published, she began work on a second manuscript.

Then, during a trip to Italy in honor of their 10th wedding anniversary and the honeymoon she and her husband never took, she received an email that would change her life. It was from an agent, Marlene Stringer of Stringer Literary, and it contained the three words every aspiring author longs to hear: “I loved it.”

Marlene sold the manuscript to Montlake Romance who published it six months later. Hitting the #1 Amazon bestseller lists within weeks of publication, Shadow’s Edge was book one of the Night Prowler novels. Book two, Edge of Oblivion, was published in October 2012 and will be followed by Rapture’s Edge in June 2013, and Edge of Darkness in fall 2013. There are six books total planned for the series.
