Wicked Beautiful by J.T. Geissinger
“Page-turning suspense. HOT. SEXY. WICKED! What to read next.”—Marie Force, New York Times Bestselling Author
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?
J.T. Geissinger’s Wicked Beautiful is a sexy, suspenseful story of revenge, heartbreak and love conquering all.
Victoria Price had her heart broken, stomped on, crushed back at the end of high school. She has vowed never to love again. What does she need it for? She has everything else, money, friends, a high profile career – no need for love! She is a strong, independent woman. In fact she makes her living teaching other women how they too can be strong bitches! Parker Maxwell is the very definition of a playboy – gorgeous, sexy, rich, successful and wants no connection with the women he beds. Until he locks eyes with Victoria and the sparks between them are out of control. Suddenly he can’t get a woman out of his head – she is all he wants. Little does he know that she is the one he let go all those years ago.
Watching them play cat and mouse with each other was so fun. You could see the conflicting emotions between moving forward and pulling back. I kept wondering when, how will Parker realize/find out the truth. How will he take it? And then when Parker bared his soul and admitted his past… my heart just broke for them. Yet, I was rooting for them to open up to each other more and overcome the crappy circumstances of their past. So many secrets are never good for a relationship! Revenge… yes! Relationship… no! And they were flirting with both! The side characters were such a trip! They really helped to round out the story! I can’t wait to see more of them!
