About the Book
For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they have to do is move on and pick up the pieces, forget there ever was a pact. But it’s not easy, not when Reeve is still a total jerk and Rennie’s meaner than she ever was before.
And then there’s sweet little Mary…she knows there’s something seriously wrong with her. If she can’t control her anger, she’s sure that someone will get hurt even worse than Reeve was. Mary understands now that it’s not just that Reeve bullied her—it’s that he made her love him.
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, burn for a burn. A broken heart for a broken heart. The girls are up to the task. They’ll make Reeve fall in love with Lillia and then they will crush him. It’s the only way he’ll learn.
It seems once a fire is lit, the only thing you can do is let it burn...
“I’ve fallen for the one person I shouldn’t have. For the boy who broke Mary’s heart. For Rennie’s one true love. For Alex’s best friend.
It has to end here. Now.”
The big twist of this book wasn’t shocking to me. I expected it during the first book. If anything, it means they have falsely labeled the genre on amazon. And honestly, that pisses me off a lot.
There’s more of a romance aspect in this book. Which brings up the drama level to about infinity million. And there’s also… not exactly a love triangle, but it’s some craziness.
There’s something that happened before the first book, and it goes into more details in this one. It’s basically a lot of victim blaming. And it frustrates me because of how realistic it is. But I expect more from young adult books. I get that it’s trying to be realistic, but it puts ideas into the audience’s head. I mean, eventually contradictory things are said, but not until the last quarter of the book. And because of that I had to knock down a star.
Final thought is… Holy crap, that ending though! I’m going to need to read the third book as soon as possible.
