This is the reason why I love doing this book review thing via eARC, it never fails to surprise me! Wicked Beautiful by J.T. Geissinger is a wonderful surprise for me, I have no idea about the author but the blurb is quite fierce that it caught my attention. Here’s the blurb:
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 is not your average leading lady; she’s feisty and ruthless – among other things! It’s a rare treat for me to read a character as fierce as she is! Known as the ultimate bitch, Victoria Price is a very calculating woman until she accidentally encounter Parker Maxwell…or was it really just a chance encounter? a mere coincidence? Maybe not…
Parker Maxwell, a restauranteur with excellent looks and oozing sex appeal to match was quite enthralled with the Queen B herself, with this, he tried every trick in the book to get her attention. Little did he know that Queen Victoria has a playbook of her own!
This book by J.T. Geissinger is indeed wicked as it is beautiful! Filled with intense chemistry between Victoria and Parker, mixed with the intriguing supporting characters for both party and a past that is so haunting not Victoria nor Parker can run away from! Upon reading this book, you will find yourself in a roller coaster of emotions, you will love her, hate her, antagonize him and then love him! I am looking forward to reading more from J.T. Geissinger, I like the way she writes and her element of building up a story!
