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 restaurant tycoon 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?
The purpose of Thrifty Thursday is to read a book which was free (at some point).

I remember seeing some favorable reviews when Wicked Beautiful was released last year. So when it came up as a Kindle freebie, I snapped it up immediately. I’m so glad I did.
Victoria and Parker are a couple of people who have had really tough situations in their past. They have somehow, survived and thrived, even through their heartbreak. They are strong, successful and fun. Their friends are interesting characters,too and loyal. The dialogue is sexy and snarky.
The feelings here are big and bold as the characters. It’s very hard to be vulnerable and honest when one has been hurt in the past. So it takes great courage to be so authentic. Even then, nothing is simple, as others are involved who can cause issues or be hurt. I plan to go on with the Wicked Games series; it’s a fun, heart-stopping roller coaster of emotions.
