Publisher's Summary

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?

So angsty!

If every person plotted revenge on someone that destroyed their heart in high school we would all be miserable. The plot made me mad at heroine. I had a hard time relating to her at all even after the full story was revealed from her side.

There is a clear defined roll open for a male character. Why no male narrator? I think Morgan is great but needed the male voice for clearly makes Parker's narrative.

Happy Audible.com makes refunds

What did you like best about Wicked Beautiful? What did you like least?

Sincerely, read the reviews before making your decision. I did, but still purchased both books in series anyway, thinking after reading "hey, it can't be all that bad...". They were right and I was wrong.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I found the story too long - meaning much of the dialogue was repeated. It could have been edited down while still keeping the tone of the book with all its twists and turns. A good book should hold you to the edge of your seat, dying to know what happens next -- this story just left me dying (fell asleep more than once while listening to the book at bedtime).

How could the performance have been better?

This book may have stood a chance, but honestly - the narrator really does make or break the book. Ms. Moran did not (or could not) deliver the proper tone needed to portray this self-proclaimed "bitch". Her voice is too whiny for one. It's not her fault the book didn't have a true male voice reading the part, but Moran couldn't deliver.

Any additional comments?

Let me just conclude by stating this, my opinion and I'll stand by it: If you are so insecure and immature to the point of holding on to a grudge well into adulthood, you are not and will never be considered a confident, successful woman, such as the heroine is depicted as being. Get over it. We all have at some point in your young lives. And if we haven't, or didn't...I strongly suggest therapy.

Didn't think I would finish it but the story kept me going.

I'm pretty disappointed with this book...I almost didn't finish it but the story was good enough that it kept me going. Parts of it were entertaining but most of it was a little too dramatic and dragged on. I also was not a fan of the narration at all. She sounded like a robot most of the time and pronounced every single consonant. I hate to say that but that's the main reason why I almost didn't finish it. The storyline was pretty good but a good few hours of the middle wasn't necessary. Overall I'd give it a 3/5 star rating.

Poor narration

Any additional comments?

The story would be fine if the narration didn't annoy me so much. She pronounces t's like d's and mispronounced so many words. I found her voice irritating, which pretty much killed this book for me.

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, which makes me curious to learn 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 does include 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. 😀

Too long!

This story went on far too long and the male voice was horrible. You should have hired Sebastian York!

I LOVED THIS STORY:)

Would you listen to Wicked Beautiful again? Why?

Totally I love the whole twist it the story and can't wait for the next book...

What did you like best about this story?

The love Parker has for Bella

Any additional comments?

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

Excellent!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh and cry in turn

Any additional comments?

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!

Annoying narrator

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.

Totally wicked and strickly beautiful

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
