Wicked Beautiful is about Victoria, Queen Bitch, a woman who has made a fortune telling other women to not fear the B word, but to embrace, to become it. Being a bitch means you are getting what you want and you are putting yourself first. Why is it that men do the same thing and are applauded for it? When women do it, we’re called bitches. Be the bitch.
The backstory of this book is heartbreaking. The climax is heartbreaking. Well, not all the climaxes. Most of those are great. Except the spanking. And the “deserving” of being spanked. That got under my skin. I think Geissinger was trying to go for irony, but it missed the mark with me.
If you’re looking for a great story about strong, but secretly vulnerable women, you have got to read this book. But make sure you do it somewhere you won’t be asked why you’re blushing. Or crying. Or laughing. Because this book will make you do all three.
