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.

The goal: Make the other beg for mercy.

The game board: East Summit High.
The reward: Something neither of them expected.

My Review

Love Me Never by Sara Wolf is book one in the Lovely Vicious series. It is a YA romance novel.

A guy broke my heart – No, more than that. He broke my soul, my heart, and who I used to be.

Isis is strong and ready to take on the world, but not take anyone’s crap. She is also super awkward in a stick-you-in-my-pocket-and-take-you-home kind of way. Mix these qualities with a bit of a crude, self-deprecating reflection of self and you know that teenage Isis, at a new high school, among strangers, may be set up for times of heartbreak.

Jack is steel and black ice. He’s deadly serious, sharp as a katana, and as disorienting as a mountain blizzard in December.

Enter Jack Hunter. He is smart and gorgeous, and all of the girl’s at their high school crave him and his attention. But, he has secrets and is a closed book. The likelihood of him giving one ounce of attention to ad oddity like Isis is so very unlikely, but he does. And in doing this, he opens the door for a relationship that is mostly unwanted and completely unexpected.

…hope is hard to hold without cutting yourself on it, so I try not to hold on too tight.

Written in dual points of view, Love Me Never was the book I had to put down to adult, but doing so made me want to cry. I seriously LOVED this book. There are times when a novel filled with funny one-liners tickles my funny bone, but often lacks more substance. Lover Me Never tickled my funny bone, but also danced all over my emotions in a way that only an Isis-dance could do. The linguistic expressions and crazy, laugh-out-loud moments had me rolling in laughter. But, the intensity of the story line as it progressed made me hang on every word.

“An immovable object meeting an unstoppable force.”
“Two unstoppable forces crashing and careening off a cliff to their untimely deaths.”

Although Isis and Jack had declared war against each other, they soon realized that love and hate were such closely related emotions, and could cause a crossing of enemy lines. This revelation amped up the story to an entirely new level, making my heart pound harder and harder as each page was turned. This progression of desperation led all the way to the ending that abruptly stopped my pounding heart and made me gasp for air then shout. Holy smokes! What a way to leave the door open for more.

Love Me Never was an exciting, entertaining, and emotion-filled novel that I couldn’t get enough of…on to book two.
