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, and 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?

Suffered through to the end just to find out what happens. Not the best written book, but sometimes the narrator just made the characters and dialogue annoying.
I live in the outback Australia and so love to listen to a good raunchy kickass story where the female is tall strong and in total control.
Wow this book was a great listen, lots of sexy toe curly banter, straight talking and to the point. So loved it. At first I thought rich female rich bloke, you know how it goes, money buys everything, I guess poor love stories aren't as attractive as rich ones. I so love reading J T's stories, so I suck it out and was very pleasantly surprised of the depth of the story. I also found it quiet funny in places. The narration by Melissa Moran was brilliantly done. Well worth the money I paid. So looking forward to Tabby's and the Jar heads story. cheers
"Series with twists and turns 🌠"
This first book of this series has an intriguing and sexy story, complicated characters and enough twist and turns that kept me entertained. It is a "stand alone" complex story that builds from young love - to betrayal - to revenge. I liked the dual POV of the H/h (Parker & Victoria) because it allows us to "get into" the character's heads a bit more and learn more about them. The secondary characters are also written with distinct personalities and I'm looking forward to hearing more about them in the other books of this series. 💏
I enjoyed the narration for this book. She did a nice job with each character and was pleased with the distinction between male and female voices.
Note: This book has sex scenes and some strong language. I would advise this for adults only.🔥
I would like to express my thanks to the author, narrator, or producer for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. 😀
"Awesome Story and Surprising Twists!"
J.T. Geissinger surprised me, impressed me and enthralled me with Wicked Beautiful. I wasn't sure what to expect, all the drama, angst, heart-ache, betrayal, and twists took me by surprise. This wasn't a neat and tidy story of second chances, but one built on lies, deceit and the pain of their past. At times you feel anxious wondering if there will be HEA. At other times, you feel the chemistry, romance and their walls crumbling, and you know in your gut, these characters will find each other.
The witty banter, sexy dirty talking, steamy sex scenes and secondary characters were a much need reprieve, and helped balance the story. I loved it and look forward to listening to Wicked Sexy!
Melissa Moran performance was outstanding! She did a great job with both the female and male characters, and really delivered on the emotions like angst, lust, anger and love.
I received this audio in exchange for an honest review.
"Not enough stars!! I loved this audiobook!!"
If there was an audiobook that grabbed my attention from the first minute it has been this one. There is no way that words can do justice but I start by saying that Melissa Moran KILLED this narration! She was Victoria Price and WOW!! The story is a complete rollercoaster and you are trusting that this author will take you places, but what you don't see coming is the twists and turns and that way all the pieces fall into place and you are sucked into this place were the past and present collide and you are just in it riding along and going through so many emotions that you will not be able to stop. This is an addictive experience and like a junkie, I want more. 5 Mega Stars!!
I was given this book for an honest review by the narrator. Thank you!
Fabulous listen. A unique take on revenge play. Unexpected results when true facts are revealed with anguished moments and time wasted. Strong, lovable characters lead into the sequel. Again, Fabulous Listen. Narrator does an awesome job for male and female vocals.
Big Two Thumbs Up!
The narration was good.The book was OK. I couldn't get past my frustrations toward Victoria, lol. And it was a bit slow moving.
"Enjoyed this book"

"Great contemporary romance full of twists and turns"
I really enjoyed this audiobook! It is a very interesting story and I had a hard time putting it down! This is no ordinary romance! Two teens fall in love and have their world shredded to pieces.
The story picks up 15 years later. There are betrayals, lies, broken hearts, revenge, misunderstandings, and romance. This was very well written and sad & twisted at times but so good!!!!
The narrator did an excellent job bringing the story to life. It was a dual POV and it was difficult not to be frustrated at times but it did end with a HEA so I'm ok with all the heartache.
I'm looking forward to reading her next book!

"Wicked Beautiful Story"
Victoria is a best selling author and life coach whose main message is teaching women to be strong and she uses the word Bitch as a positive thing.
Parker is a restaurant owner and Victoria goes to his new restaurant with her best friend (who is a food critic) and she realizes she knows him from her teenage years. She decides then and there that she will make him pay for what he did to her by hurting him. Problem is, Parker doesn’t recognize her because she has had plastic surgery, dyed her hair and its been at least 10 years since they knew each other.
Parker is attracted to Victoria and wants to get to know her better, which works to her advantage. I do not want to spoil anything about what there connection from the past is so you’ll have to read to find out more. Just know that J.T. Geissinger tells a great story and you will enjoy watching as it unfolds. I have already downloaded another book by her featuring some of the supporting characters from this story.
This was my first time listening to a book read by Melissa Moan and for the most part I enjoyed her performance. Her male voice isn't very masculine but she gives it a decent effort and you can tell the characters apart which is important to me. The main problem is with her Spanish accent, it's pretty bad lol
I voluntarily provided a review in exchange for a free copy of this audiobook.
"Funny love hate romance"
Probably not. While I did enjoy it there were times where I was left scratching my head. For example churros, I'm sorry but I just couldn't get behind that! I know I'm probably the minority on that but I guess it's personal preference.
I found Polaroid to be the most interesting, so I'm definitely looking forward to the next book. Least would be the fact that the heroine went through so much to change her appearance. I could understand her doing a complete 180 on her personality, but I couldn't really understand her reasoning for her extreme change in appearance.
I have and I loved her in this book. I think with all the different quirky characters it really gave her a chance to shine.
The ending.... I wish we would have had more though!
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
"disappointing story and jagged narration"
struggled to finish.... listen to chapters 1- 19 and skipped to the end. It was lackluster and hard to listen to.
"I LOVED THIS STORY:)"
Totally I love the whole twist it the story and can't wait for the next book...
The love Parker has for Bella
I wish and a guy was reading Parker's version of events someone like Deacon Lee or Jason Carpenter or Zachary Webber - think that would have made the story stand out even though Melissa does a good job
It made me laugh and cry in turn
I really enjoyed this book, it was so funny at times with the banter between the characters. It was also heart-breaking at times when Victoria/Isabel was thinking about her past and also when Parker opened up to her about why he left Isabel 15 years before and it made her realise how wrong she'd been. Honestly I both laughed and cried reading this book! I love how it ended though and I'd love if Tabby and Connor got a book. Even though this one is a standalone book I feel that there's a story for Tabby and Connor in the making at the end of this one!
