The main character is unhinged and her narration is unreliable at best but you have to love her. She is the embodiment of all of the petty hopes and dreams that we think about and hope that no one would ever be able to read our minds.
This was a good story with some poetic justice in the end but definitely not what I was expecting.
Unfortunately this book was not for me. I don't mind my books to have a bit of darkness to them, but this one is full of it. There is so much revenge and manipulation going on, it was hard to invest in the characters and all their underhandedness and a couple boarding on psycho.
I felt it could have been a great book if a few things were different, and that maybe if the author had good beta readers in her corner that were honest with her. The story line is not a bad one, and if there was only one crazy girl doing the manipulation, I would have enjoyed it a bit more. I didn't feel the heroine deserved her HEA, as the relationship is based on lies.
Ivy / Emily meets a new boy in grade school and they become best friends. Circumstances come about that he has to move away with his family and doesn't return for three years. In that time, Ivy has an accident and now has facial scars. Brooks doesn't recognise her anymore and starts dating another girl. Ivy holds a grudge for 10 years, and after inheriting a substantial amount of money, she decides to fix her face and win Brooks back.
I really tried to find some good to this book, and the only thing I liked was Brooks. I wanted him to find his HEA, but I am not sure of his choices.

Ok, I’ll try again…
What the hell did I just read? More to the point – I need book two NOW. You cannot leave me dangling like this.
I can hand on heart say that I without a doubt didn’t like any of the characters in this story. However, I felt that was part of its charm. I was engrossed from the very beginning at the lengths Ivy would go to to get her man. I couldn’t wait to see certain characters get their comeuppance *mutters* Best not go there or I’ll go off on one again.
I am almost positive I must’ve resembled a guppy on more than one occasion and muttered ‘What the what?’ or a slightly less censored version, lol. For me, this tale is reminiscent of the 80s-classic novel, The Lives and Loves of a She-Devil with a twist.
Like ivy is wont to do, this story has woven itself into my psyche and refuses to leave until I know what happens next. A truly stunning debut. If you’re looking for a story with a difference, then I can’t recommend this book more.
