Wicked Beautiful is hilariously brilliant. J.T. Geissinger rocked this feminist story into a romantically sweet and funny fairytale.

Victoria is a jaded woman who took her broken hearted past into a positive movement.  She became a self-help guru to teach women how to be a bitch and to take control of their lives. She was good at it, and life was good until she’s reunited with the guy responsible for her broken heart.  Now she has him eating at the palm of her hands. Unfortunately, her quest to find revenge will be a bust.  Parker is not who she thinks.  In fact, quite the opposite that puts her in a very sticky situation.

I enjoyed this book more than expected.  I could not put it down. Geissinger kept me intrigued the whole time. The humor was laugh out loud funny, and Victoria’s internal dialogue was just hilarious.  Her persona of being the queen bee was inspiring (I need a little of this in my life. LOL) to me and definitely relatable.  Though some scenes are a little unrealistic, I love that Victoria took matters into her own hands and made things happen for herself.  Ms. Geissinger did an excellent job keeping Victoria’s character strong throughout the book.  Yes, she showed past weaknesses and moments of vulnerability, but Victoria handled her broken heart well.

As far as the relationship goes, I enjoyed Victoria and Parker’s story.  Their past was heartbreaking but their love-to-hate beginning that ended with a second chance romance was very sweet.  Oh, and the sexual tension between them was off the charts as well.

I’ve read several reviews discussing the similarities to Alice Clayton’s The Wallbanger.  There are some similarities, not the story line, but the humor was similar.  However,  Wicked Beautiful takes a more serious tone towards the end.  I equally enjoyed them.  Just like The Wallbanger,  Wicked Beautiful had a right balance of humor and emotion stirrer.  I highly recommend it.

About J.T. Geissinger

J.T. Geissinger’s debut novel, Shadow’s Edge, was published in 2012 and was a #1 Amazon US and UK bestseller in fantasy romance and romance series. She has been nominated for the prestigious RITA® award from the Romance Writers of America for best paranormal romance for her second book in the Night Prowler series, Edge of Oblivion.

A life-long lover of reading and a self-professed “book addict,” she didn’t realize her dream of writing a novel until a milestone birthday forced her to take stock of her goals in life. Always believing the right time to commit to putting pen to paper would magically announce itself, it took waking up one cold January morning with a shiny new zero as the second number in her age to kick start her determination.
Starting on that very day, she wrote what would become Shadow’s Edge in a little over four months and submitted it to several literary agents. Nothing happened. Thinking that was the end of that but by no means willing to give up on her dreams of being published, she began work on a second manuscript.
Then, during a trip to Italy in honor of their 10th wedding anniversary and the honeymoon she and her husband never took, she received an email that would change her life. It was from an agent, Marlene Stringer of Stringer Literary, and it contained the three words every aspiring author longs to hear: “I loved it.”

Marlene sold the manuscript to Montlake Romance who published it six months later. Hitting the #1 Amazon bestseller lists within weeks of publication, Shadow’s Edge was book one of the Night Prowler novels. Book two, Edge of Oblivion, was published in October 2012 and will be followed by Rapture’s Edge in June 2013, and Edge of Darkness in fall 2013. There are six books total planned for the series.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
