Here’s the 411 about high school—well, at least for my high school, Clintwood Academy.⠀
💋It’s a fucking warzone.⠀
💋Everyone has a grudge against someone else. ⠀
💋It’s the breeding ground for losers, jealous broken-hearted girls, and acne covered fools with zero game.⠀

DEVIOUS KISSES: is the first full length enemies to romance book in the series 'It's just highschool', by Thandiwe Mpofu. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.'
This is Mia and Julian's story and what a story it is..She's the daughter of a prima ballerina and he's one of the golden boys of St. Jude High.

im sorry you guys i had to because shit was just too funny for me to actually take it serious. i really want to try reading bully romance but this was just...bad. as much as i love character with spunk, spike and backbone the conversation and inner monologue sometimes gets too cringy for my liking. i mean,
I’m going to party like I’m not sad and miserable and my life isn’t slipping through my $40 manicure, when I used to get $250 manicures. Trust me, there’s a difference.
YEAH NO ...more
When you do, you have to read this book.
Thandie is the queen of high school stories.
Her books are full of drama, emotions and raw feelings.
Her characters are young people that fights their way through social life, that's a nightmare and family life that is all other than nice and cozy.
They might be young adults, but their lives is a complicated hell that makes them much older and smarter than it's good for them.
This is the first book in the "It's Just High School" seri ...more
one of my guilty pleasures is reading high school bully romance filled with secrets, lies, and DRAMA. Devious Kisses served all of these and i was not prepared!
julian and mia are both complex characters. especially mia. what i like most about her is she has a freaking backbone. she wasn't a doormat type of heroine. i did like her bitchy character. she didn't let anyone walk all over her and she defended herself like how she was supposed to. but deep down her bitchy attitude is someone who's goin ...more
Me 👆the whole time reading this book.
At times in this book there is body shaming, making fun of someone’s pimples, crooked teeth, slapping a teacher’s ass. I wanted to rate this book less but I just couldn’t. ...more
One fateful kiss set the wheels in motion. That kiss would change their lives irrevocably.

From the very beginning, you just know this is going to be an emotional read, and boy is it ever. Julian and Mia are so young when they first meet, but have endured so much pain already in their life ...more
It starts with a kiss, but then it all goes to nothing...
Mia is a perfect girl - a perfect High school leader. She's called the Ice Queen. She takes no crap from nobody, she rules the school and she eats them and spits them out. But at home, she can let her guard down and just be herself.
Julian lives for his brothers. He's constantly let down by his parents.
When their worlds collide, it's anything but pretty: angst, bullying, accusations,...
And we get even more. ...more

It just took a single kiss, one devious kiss, and lives were forever changed. From the moment I started reading this book and the moment of that first kiss I knew this book would take me on an emotional journey. Mia and Julian met at low points in their lives, then she destroyed his world and he ...more
ALL MY REVIEWS CAN BE FOUND ON MY BLOG: ABSTRACT BOOKS
'Devious Kisses' is the first book of the 'It's just high school' series. This book is a cliffhanger and was all the flavours of heartbreaking and hot!! It is spoken in dual perspectives.
The way this author writes , I don't really know how to spell it out but she just twits me so much with her words that I feel every emotion with her characters and just get attached to them so deeply! The same was the case in Mia and Julian's story! I had b ...more
There is a major need for editing. I am aware the author was in a hurry to release the novel after it was postponed several times. I do not understand why after all the delays- it wasn't edited. There are sentences missing words, with extra words, and enough spelling errors that I actually triple che ...more
I understand each and everyone of my reviews probably needs a good edit, but I am in no rush to publish it so... no editor needed, however in this case.. it was like bam bam every other page.
Then the thing is I liked the heroine, or I wanted to like because she seemed this bad ass yet she was evil, and liar, yet left me confused and I wasn't so sure why I wanted to like her ...more
Mia and Julian first meet before our story is currently set- as younger children visiting famil ...more

"This girl. She. Sees. Me. Every single inch of me, she sees me."
Julian Fitzgerald has a secret. He rules his school. Boys want to be him. Girls want to be with him. He's untouchable and unattainable. Nothing fazes him. So why does the beautiful, sharp-tongued slip of a girl get under his skin? One moment of bliss with a stolen kiss suddenly turns his world upside down and his secret exposed. She's now his enemy.
Just from the beginning of this book, I knew that this book was going to pull at my heartstrings and cause an emotional battle deep inside. There are so many layers to thi ...more
And in the middle of this storm are Mia and Julian, their love/hate relationship created in the worst possible circumstances. One kiss, few words said in anger ...more
When I read the blurb for this book, I was hooked line and sinker. This is the first time I am reading this author, her other books I have in my TBR list and I can't even say why I didn't read it. But, now I definitely will.
This is a bully romance but with a heavy plot and so many layers, each player hiding something and with secrets to hide.
I loved how Mia, our female protagonist was bitch and knew how to give it back and let no one walk over her and still never be caught without being pri ...more

I really liked this story! Sometimes it was hard to read with the obvious misplaced, misspelled and even missing words though. I still thoroughly enjoyed this book (and author) and will continue to read the series.
I really liked J and Mia. It wasn't always easy to fall for each other, but they made it work time and time again. The pull was too much for the their little high school hearts. They had to give in. There were a few instances where I was holding my breath and my heart ached f ...more
This was nonstop with angst and drama, there’s also hatef ...more
Full of angst and drama Mia and Julian's story is based on misunderstanding and hurt. There were twists and turns through out the story. Their hate filled drama was loaded with fire that had the pages burning up.
But these are all lies! She really spends an insane amount of time on Instagram, stalking Beyonce for the next album release which she swears might drop at anytime. Sorry to that lady.
