BLOG TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - Wicked Beautiful by J.T. Geissinger

Wicked Beautiful

By: J.T. Geissinger
Publication Date: December 1, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Second-Chance



Payback's a bitch...named Victoria. 

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 restaurateur 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?

Wicked Beautiful is a slight twist on a second chance romance. Fifteen years have passed. For Victoria, it’s fifteen years of heartbreak, mending, and drastic changes in her life. For Parker, it’s fifteen years of figuring out his life without Isabel, the woman Victoria used to be. Apart, they have both become very successful people. Victoria: a spokesperson for women, selling books and giving talks all over the country. Parker: a famous restaurateur, opening multiple successful restaurants all over the country. But when they laid eyes on each other one night, there is a problem…Parker doesn’t know Victoria is girl he used to love. One thing they can’t deny: the instant connection and attraction is still there.


When I read the synopsis, I was very intrigued. How does Parker not know it’s her? And when will he finally recognize it’s her? There definitely has to be a story there (of course). In this situation, Victoria has the upper hand. She can finally get the revenge against Parker for leaving her without a word and breaking her heart. Most importantly, she just has to make sure not to get burned along the way.

Plot line – This is a dual POV story. There is more on Victoria’s part because she really does drive the story. But, getting a glimpse in Parker’s head is definitely just as interesting. What has to be going through his mind while Victoria tries to mess with it? Oh, you’ll get to see the emotional rollercoaster with both characters.

Chemistry – Oh hot damn. No matter how long time has passed, that chemistry is still there. And don’t get me started on Parker…swoon-worthy guy alert! He is one hot, sexy guy who goes after what he wants. All of his gesture, movements, and touches will make you melt into a freaking puddle. When Parker has all the right moves, the sexy times are just as hot. How can Victoria not fall in love with him all over again?

Squad – Victoria is one badass character with badass friends. Darcy is her best friend, who doesn’t hold back. She is sassy and funny, which actually helps balance out Victoria’s character.  Plus, she also pushes Victoria past her boundaries and makes her see things she would have missed. Tabby is Victoria’s personal assistant, who knows everything about her (even things Darcy doesn’t even know). She knows how to keep secrets and prevents others from getting them. Let’s just say she is one really smart cookie. And, you don’t want to mess with her.

When everything begins to unravel (all the secrets, lies, truths, and missing pieces), it is a very fun and enjoyable read.
