Book Summary:

17-year-old Lexi Turner has just been dumped by her boyfriend of three years—on the day she was going to, well, “do it” with him. And to make matters worse, he dumped her for a life-force-sucking demon!

Devastated by this turn of events, she decides there is only one way to deal with the situation: get revenge!

Enter Jase Holloway—Lexi’s former childhood friend and adversary to her ex. The plan is simple: somehow talk Jase into pretending to be her boyfriend to make her ex-boyfriend jealous, make him regret dumping her and make him come crawling back to her on his hands and knees, begging for forgiveness…

With Jase on board, Lexi is confident she will get the revenge she deserves. But nothing’s ever that simple, and Lexi soon finds out firsthand that sometimes what you want is not always what you get—and sometimes what you get is what you wanted all along.

I picked this one up because I enjoyed the author’s other book Challenge Accepted. This one was not quite as good. This is a typical teenage young adult book with swearing, drinking, partying and talk of sex. There were not any sex scenes and most of the language was mild. I enjoy reading young adult titles but prefer them with less of the teenage everyone’s doing it mentality.

I do however like this author’s writing style. She pulled me into the story and I kept reading to the end. There were definitely several things I would have changed about this storyline. The characters made some really stupid decisions which I found had to forgive and move on from. Take this for what it is. If you enjoy YA and don’t mind language, sexual talk, etc. this might be for you.

Rating: 3.5 Stars

Content: Language throughout most of it mild, talk of sex, innuendo, crude comments/thoughts
