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 restauranteur 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?
I received this book for free from The Publicist in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
If there is one thing to take away from this review, let it be known that J.T. Geissinger can write some drama filled, sexy books. I already love her writing, so when I saw this book with a revenge plot? I knew I had to have it.
True to Ms. Geissinger’s form, Wicked Beautiful is full of twists, sexy encounters, and not to mention stubborn and interesting characters. Victoria is my kind of girl. She is in a word, a bitch. I love strong, passionate women that take what they want and Victoria is that, ten fold. Yet, she also has a vulnerable side to her, so that makes her all the more human! Parker too, is stubborn, strong-willed and harboring deep-rooted pain. You would think two people with very similar personalities would clash but that is just not the case. These two have sexual chemistry down to a science.
Not only that, Wicked Beautiful has the best secondary characters. Victoria’s friends are nothing short of supportive and hilarious. I was invested in their stories, and their reactions to everything going on just as much as Victoria and Parker. The events leading up the end of Wicked Beautiful set up the next book perfectly and I’m beyond excited for that.
It’s really difficult to say anything else because of all the drama and plot twists. Just know that if you love sexy, darker stories with drama and angst, this is for you.
