Wicked Beautiful by J.T. Geissinger

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?

Victoria Price's career is being a bitch. Not just any bitch, but the bitch that teaches other woman to be bitches. How to get ahead in a man's world. When she was in high school her heart was ripped from her chest. From that moment on she was changed. She had to be strong to go on, this is part of the lessons she teaches other woman.

When Parker see Victoria for the first time, he's intrigued by her beauty and the way she carries herself. He only has a few rules of his own, don't ask about his past, don't expect anything in the future, and no sleepovers. Something about Victoria has Parker wanting to break all his rules.

Victoria hasn’t seen the boy that broke her heart in high school until she walks into his restaurant. He's been living in the same town as her and now that Victoria knows it, her need for revenge has become the only goal.

I liked the twists and turns of this one. Victoria and Parker have hot chemistry, but I loved Darcy. She is a hilarious secondary character. I am hoping to read more on Tabby and Connor.

So, I really liked this book, especially at the beginning but towards the end I just wanted it to end so I could start book two because I was wicked obsessed with the supporting characters who get their own story in book two. Don’t get me wrong, this book is awesome and the author does a fantastic job leading us to book two without making it a cliffhanger.

When ‘Victoria’ was 15, she fell in love with her best friend, Parker Maxwell. Then Parker left and absolutely destroyed Victoria. Now, 15 years later, Victoria Price is the Queen Bi**h and holds seminars teaching woman how to get in touch with their own inner Bi**h. Her ice queen exterior begins to crack when she runs into Parker at his new restaurant, except because of all her plastic surgery he doesn’t realize who she is. Victoria decides to extract her revenge on Parker for destroying her by making him fall in love with her and finding something on him that will ruin his career. Except Victoria can’t help letting her heart get involved. Add in a bada** hacker assistant who keeps Victoria’s secrets safe while being absolutely hilarious to boot and this is a great read!

I LOVED Victoria’s assistant, Tabby, she’s fierce and smart and I’m super excited to begin reading her story next. This story is written well and has a super-fast pace, I couldn’t put it down!
