Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, forty-three weeks, and two days. Or so she thinks.
The boy she maybe-sort-of-definitely loved and sort-of-maybe-definitely hated has dropped off the face of the planet in the face of tragedy, leaving a Jack Hunter–shaped hole. Determined to be happy, Isis fills it in with lies and puts on a brave smile for her new life at Ohio State University.
But the smile lasts only until he shows up. The menace from her past—her darkest secret, Nameless—is attending OSU right alongside her. And he’s whispering that he has something Isis wants—something she needs to see to move forward. To move on.
Isis has always been able to pretend everything is okay. But not anymore.
Isis Blake might be good at putting herself back together.
But Jack Hunter is better.
Following the tragic events at the conclusion of Book 2 Isis and Jack are broken people and this shows in the way they act. This instalment takes place while the two are at college and while they are putting themselves back together someone from Isis’s past makes an appearance.
The same wit and snarky attitude grace the page in both Isis and Jack’s character which is what made me love them from the beginning. Following the pair through to college where they re-connect after a falling out and how they mend fences and each other. These characters are so well developed and damaged that they feel as if they could be at any high school or college. They are realistic.
I was satisfied with the ending. It tied everything up neatly and I felt happy with the conclusion. Overall, there is conflict and broken people helping each other, which is what I loved from the Lovely Vicious series, with a satisfying ending this book is a great conclusion to the series.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Sara Wolf is a twenty-something author who adores baking, screaming at her cats, and screaming at herself while she types hilarious things. When she was a kid, she was too busy eating dirt to write her first terrible book. Twenty years later, she picked up a keyboard and started mashing her fists on it and created the monster known as the Lovely Vicious series. She lives in San Diego with two cats, a crippling-yet-refreshing sense of self-doubt, and not enough fruit tarts ever.
