Payback's a bitch...named Victoria. 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 restaurateur 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?

I was a huge fan of J.T. Geissinger's Paranormal Romance series and haven't really had an opportunity to dive into her other books until now.  I'm so glad I stopped and read this one because as usual J.T. had me turning the pages! 
I love second chance romances and this one managed to both touch my heart and entertain with the unique lifestyles that both of these characters had.  The opening chapters with Victoria Price as a successful Life Coach was very amusing indeed.  And, there is an element of truth to everything she is saying.  But, does she really believe everything she is teaching all of her followers about female empowerment?  Well, all the rules are thrown out the window when she crosses paths with Parker Maxwell, a ghost from her past.  Not just any ghost, but THE ghost that is responsible for the way she chooses to live her life now.  And, she is out for revenge! 
Will she succeed in getting her revenge?  Or, will she succumb to her heart's desires.  I'll let you read to find out. 
I absolutely adored the supporting characters in this book and I do hope we get a spin-off book about Tabby and Connor...  yep, that seriously needs to happen! 
This is a delightfully entertaining story that is both heart wrenching and heart warming.  A little bit of everything I love in one book.  That's always a winner for me. 
Definitely looking forward to more from this wonderful author... 

5 stars
Once upon a time, I had a heart.

It was a nice one, too, big and wide and tender. I loved everything with that heart: my parents, my little brother, the young mare my father bought me that I rode back and forth to my small country school. I loved my family’s modest ranch, and the flat Texas plains that stretched away from it in shimmering golden miles in every direction. I loved the earth, and the sky, and the soft summer rain.
Then, when I was fifteen, I met a boy my heart loved even more than anything. My heart loved the boy so fiercely it would bolt, or skip a beat, or stall out altogether, just from the mention of his name. For two perfect years this boy was my heart’s true joy, and, in my innocence, I believed it would remain so forever. I believed my heart was safe with him, that a love so pure and good could never be defiled.
I was wrong.
The boy taught me a lesson, and the lesson was this: love is a fairy-tale. An illusion. A lie. Love can wither like an apple blossom killed from frost, and so can hearts.
Mine did.
Now inside my chest where my heart used to beat so joyfully you’ll find only a jagged shard of ice. Into that frozen shard is carved a single, simple word:
Revenge.
