A ruthless businesswoman and the playboy who dumped her long ago find themselves embroiled in a high stakes game of love, lies and revenge.
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 restaurant tycoon 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?
"Wicked Beautiful" by J.T. Geissinger is a story that, I have to be honest, took me by surprise. I expected it to be a bit more predictable and, not a big fan of heroines that are a bit witchy, I grew to really, really like Victoria. Of course, Parker is yummy and, despite his playboy ways, I adored how he treated Victoria. The plot is based on a revenge theme (again, not usually one of my faves) but was told is such a way that had me turning the pages to see if Victoria would really do it and, also to find out, if Parker could break through the ice around her heart. The author does an incredible job of keeping the reader on their toes - some twists and surprises that I didn't expect. The interactions between Victoria and Parker were hot and sexy yet sweet and tender at times too. The banter between the two had me chuckling at times and my heart was definitely engaged throughout this entertaining tale. I look forward to reading book two, "Wicked Sexy" coming out soon and discovering Tabby's story. (received copy for honest review)
