Chelsea McDaniel has a reputation at their rival school for using girls up and tossing them a...more
The plot was a bit similar to 'John Tucker Must Die' but the author made it gay which always equals better to me.
Siera Maley's books always have the most adorable couple, Zoey and Chelsea being each other's first kiss at 12 *swoon*, Zoey saving her contact name as “First Crush” in Chelsea's phone etc . It'd be going so well and then Zoey would always be like 'plan, ...more
CWs: homophobia, mc gets kicked out by parents
Right, so, this is a solo POV book about someone around the age of 17 & currently a high school student. She is very much a not likable character.
I seem to alternate rating Maley books something near 5 star ...more
I really love this author's writing style! I was super addicted to reading this and tried to read this in every spare moment I had. But the only problem was...I didn't really like Zoey. Everyone talks about how horrible her friends are (and I agree...to an extent) but Zoey really isn't that good of a person either and I struggled with not judging her some times which I hated but I couldn't help it. I actually ended up feeling really bad for Chelsea with the whole prank and the fact that Zoey kep ...more
Okay, so if you’re looking for a classic kind of YA book you got it here.
Angst, full of teenage drama, Lies and denial. Homophobe parents, fake friends etc. wow!
I actually like Chelsea and Zoey but I also like Alex.
I find it weird that I also like her history with Zoey.
Bummer! Fake friends everywhere.
I hate Skylar! I can smell her from the beginning, she’s actually worse than Zoey’s mom.
Why do I ...more
This... Not so much. Character motivations seemed a bit... flimsy, at best, I guess. As well as the plot.
I guess what I'm saying is, I love maley's style, and I can go through her books pretty ...more
- tw homophobia (from mc’s parents)
- Siera maley has become an auto read author for me, I’ll read anything and everything by her bc I love so many of her works (taking flight, colourblind, dating sarah cooper, on the outside)
- That said .. when I read this synopsis .. I was not super excited just because I’m just not a huge fan of revenge-dating type plots
- If you liked the sound of the synopsis I doubt you’ll be disappointed, I think the romance, the story the pacing are all up to par wi ...more

The author did a great job of subtly increasing the intensity throughout the novel. I am still reeling that one of the more exciting reads I have had in the last few months came from this YA romance. ...more
I also like it when characters do the wrong things for the right reasons.
The two leads, Zoey and Chelsea, were deep and well-written, in my opinion, and I was surprised what I could still learn about them, the longer the story went on. Not in a "the author made up new stuff about them ...more
