My Rating: 4 stars/5
Synopsis: Don’t love your enemy. Declare war on him.
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. Since then she’s lost eighty-five pounds, gotten four streaks of purple in her hair, and moved to Buttcrack-of-Nowhere, Ohio, to help her mom escape a bad relationship.
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.
My thoughts from the Vault
I greatly enjoyed this novel and really felt for Isis as I was that girl. Even though I had boyfriends, unlike Isis, I still never thought myself beautiful or worthy of anyone’s love. I still get incredibly uncomfortable when I am given a compliment so I related to Isis and her struggles. The one thing I found a little weird was the way Isis would fly to the complete other extreme if someone would compliment her to the point of telling them that they didn’t need to lie to her, but on multiple occasions she would talk about how sexy or hot she was.
Another way I related to Isis was the way she talked. The silly made up words such as “illegaler” are things I tend to do on a daily basis. It made her a more believable high school student as who hasn’t made up words before. I found Isis to be snarky and funny and I loved getting inside her head during this book.
As for Jack? Don’t even get me started on that boy! Cold, and a slight bit of an asshole, I absolutely loved him! I am always a sucker for the jackass who could possibly be a really sweet guy inside. Now Jack may be cruel, but he has a reason for the way he acts and the distance he keeps people. He is definitely more then he seems.
I highly enjoyed this novel and I do recommend this novel! Adding this one to the vault!
