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?

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!
"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!!
"Enjoyed this book"

"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. 😀
This is Book 1 in the Wicked Games Series and i really enjoyed it. It has all the elements to make it a great listening: angst, romance, intrigue, drama, lies and scandal. Fifteen years ago, lies and deception changed the course of their lives. Now they reunite, one is looking for revenge, the other only wants to feel happiness again.
I loved this story!
And I really enjoyed the narrator's job! Well done!

"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.
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!
"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!

"WICKEDLY SAD, WICKEDLY TWISTED & WICKEDLY GOOD"
This is definitely a 5 star romance but it's so so much more too.. because Ms Geissinger has written a compelling love story about a sweet and fragile young love between two soul mates. And the heartbreak, devastation and loss when that love is thoughtlessly torn apart, viciously betrayed and masterfully manipulated by people closest until,15 years later, it seems more like a Shakespearian tragedy.
Victoria had her heart ripped out in her previous life but she's risen from the ashes stronger, remodelled her face and reshaped herself into a very successful Women's Motivational Guru who inspires women to mould their own lives and futures - not knowing that hers was imminently going to come crashing down around her. Because she's about to meet Parker again - the person who ruined her and her family's lives, took her virginity, broke her heart and left her pregnant. Although there's an instant click on both sides when they accidentally meet Parker doesn't recognize her... so Victoria sets out her plan to seduce and then destroy his blackened heart. But get a shovel ready Victoria, because as they say when seeking revenge, prepare to dig two graves, Parker isn't the Devil you think he is and Victoria... you're going to need that shovel.
There were parts to this dual POV well narrated story that I absolutely hated and I just had to turn it off for a while because Victoria's revenge filled manipulative acts and words on an innocent and unsuspecting Parker didn't sit well with me. He was trying to penetrate her hard shell to get to her heart because he'd already lost his to a woman who'd lied to him over and over again, to a woman who was a mystery and to a woman who his heart somehow recognized... Victoria. But, as the bitter-sweet twisted truth was eventually uncovered and revealed Victoria's heart would break for a second time... and leave chaos and devastation in its wake. Yes, parts of this I hated however it was a well written romantic and addictive listen too and there were times I was tempted to do the unthinkable... to stop and listen to the Epilogue (I know I know) but I needed the assurance that love would eventually conquer all. However, I didn't and should've had more faith in this skilled Author's abilities because she didn't fail me - she gave me romance, passion, sex, twists, humor, heartbreak, some good secondary characters AND a much needed and anticipated HEA Epilogue.. so I'm good.
Worth a credit? YES, it was a modern day Romeo and Juliet - only Victoria and Parker got a second chance for a do-over... and a second chance to create a HEA.
"this book is horrible."
absolutely horrible. not one redeeming feature. I always feel sorry for the narrators when books are this bad.
"Vindictive and funny"
I'm just going to start off by saying I hated Victoria. I pitied her and admired her courage but I could not stand her whole plot for revenge. It was really disheartening when Parker is kissing her and try to get her to open up and she's thinking about destroying him.
However it was a interesting and entertaining game of cat and mouse. There were some funny parts, sexy parts and parts where you couldn't help feel heartbroken for the two of them. Once all the dot were connected in the end, you realize how much was stolen from them.
I like Melissa Moran. I think she did a good job narrating. I do wish there could have been a male narrator; I don't know why one wasn't casted. However She did well in both roles.
