About the book:
Fire meets ice. Love meets hate.
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 the 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.

I absolutely loved this very different Young Adult book from Sara Wolf! It’s a smart, funny and very deeply felt story that is completely different and refreshing. Isis Blake might be one of the feistiest heroines I have ever read and she has really met her match in Jack Hunter. These two become engaged in a battle of wits and I couldn’t wait to see who would back down first – or who would give in.
These two have plenty of very, very dark secrets to hide, but balancing out the emotional story line is some really funny dialogue and sharp sarcasm. I absolutely love Sara Wolf’s writing style! The supporting cast of characters are fantastic and all feel vital to the plot. And, I must mention that the cover of the book is gorgeous! The ending of Lovely Vicious really stunned me and I can’t wait for Book #2 in this series.
