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, 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?

Maria’s Review

“Only forgiveness will set you free. Only forgiveness can heal your scars. Forgiveness not only for those who’ve wronged you but also for yourself.”

➦Reading this book was a lot of fun! We have a strong heroine, who is in the business of hating men and built a whole empire on it. She meets our hero 15 years after being dumped by him and she’s out to get revenge on him. For breaking her heart… and vagina. Yep, apparently there are icicles in both.

➦So anywhoooo… the heroine’s awesome plan is to have the hero fall head over heels for her and then dump him and break the poor bastard’s heart.

➦But wait! There’s a catch! This poor bloke doesn’t recognize her because she’s had numerous plastic surgeries to alter her appearance for the better.

➦There’s just one tiny problem. He might or might not be the one to melt all the icicles. So how will it all end?

➦So I guess my only question is… “Did she get plastic surgery for her voice too?” Don’t worry, I always ask this type of question when this trope comes up. 😀

❤I really like the premise of the novel, however unbelievable it might be… fiction, people! It did create for much needed tension and torment. There are a lot of secrets that get uncovered throughout the novel. The writing is very engaging and kept me interested until the end. I loved all of the supporting characters and I’m itching to read the second book in this series!

➦Recommended to anyone who loves revenge plots, hate to love relationships, steamy reads with a lot of entertaining banter. I was LOL’ing quite a bit 🙂 xoxo
