Love Me Never: Lovely Vicious Book #1 by Sara Wolf

cover84220-mediumLove Me Never: Lovely Vicious by Sara Wolf is the first book in this series and was released by Entangled Publishing in April 2016. I recently found this book and I after all the praise about this book I knew I had to read it for myself. Sara Wolf creates a very realistic plot line and setting based around two high school teenagers that hate each other at first site. Blake is sixteen years old and as decided to never love again. Her past has a lot of dark history that manages to only hold on to her but make her not trust anyone. She moves with her mother from Florida to Ohio in hopes to leave her mothers abusive boyfriend behind. While starting a new school is scary for some, its a fresh start for Blake. She use to be over weight and bullied at her old school making this a time to start a new. Jack is the most popular and most handsome boy at her new school and as a nickname as the ice prince. Every girl at school is crushing on him but he has no desire for any of them. Jack is what some would call a loner. He is haunted by his past and realizes that he may never be able to leave that behind him. Blake and Jack declare war on each other after Jack hurts the feelings of Blake’s only friend. I really love the “war” and all the crazy, yet funny things that comes throughout the arguments. I find the ending to be a complete surprise, it was not what I was expecting! I can’s wait to read the next book in this series, Forget Me Always. I really like Sara Wolf’s writing style and look forward to reading many more. **I received this book complementary from Entangled Teen/Netgalley in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**

Seventeen-year-old Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, nine weeks, and five days, and after what happened last time, she intends to keep it that way.

All the girls in her new school want one thing—Jack Hunter, the Ice Prince of East Summit High. Hot as an Armani ad, smart enough to get into Yale, and colder than the Arctic, Jack Hunter’s never gone out with anyone. Sure, people have seen him downtown with beautiful women, but he’s never given high school girls the time of day. Until Isis punches him in the face. Jack’s met his match. Suddenly everything is a game.

The goal: Make the other beg for mercy.

The game board: East Summit High.

The reward: Something neither of them expected

Playing the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts

playing the playerPlaying the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts is an amazing young adult book. Roberts does an outstanding job creating the characters making them realistic and relatable. Trina and Slade decided to nanny for their best friends over the summer to help their friends. They are complete opposites and this helps make the book even more interesting. While Trina plans everything and carries an organized binder with her everywhere she goes. Slade is the laid back popular guy who’s looking for a good time. They really can’t stand each other at the being but that soon changes as the story plays out. They go from being completely mean to each other and not having much respect for the other to developing a friendship that is unexpected. When secrets are revealed their friendship gets tested. I really enjoyed reading this book and found myself laughing out loud a few times. You can get your copy HERE.

(from amazon.com) Trina Clemons needed the money. Why else would she – the most organized, prepared student in school – spend the summer as a nanny and partner with the biggest slacker ever? Now she’s ready to tackle nannyhood with her big binder of research and schedules. Just don’t ask her about the secret job of “fixing” the bad habits of a certain high school player. Slade Edmunds prefers easy hook-ups, and Trina is definitely not his type. She’s all structure and rules, while Slade wants to just have fun. Fortunately, Trina has no idea about the bet Slade made with his best friend that he can totally get her to unwind by the end of summer. Then the weirdest thing happens. There’s chemistry. A lot of it. But nothing gets between a boy and a girl like a big, fat secret.
