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.**
