***Blog Tour Stop + Giveaway*** Lovely Vicious By Sara Wolf

Summary :

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.

Review :

“And then he came, and pulled her petals off one by one, forcing her to surround herself with thorns to survive. But he missed one petal. And she guards it with a tiger's ferocity.” 

Where do I even start?  Lovely Vicious is one incredible read! I literally could not put the book down. I had to drag myself out of the room just to get some work  done. That's how much this book got me glued to it. But then what else do you expect when you start reading such an amazing story as Lovely Vicious.
Each & every character was so beautifully developed and characterized. But most of all I loved Isis. My love for Jack is obvious since I never get enough of tortured souls. And the banter between them, OMG  you do not want me to even get started on it. I was literally rolling on the floor with laughter. Want a glimpse of what I'm talking about? Here you go!

“I would love to slap you right now, but I’m currently wielding a nine pound ball and I’m afraid that would be called murder.” 

“Is that how you kissed me?” I ask, nearly tripping as he pulls me along. “Golly gee, it looks kind of mildly fucking embarrassing! No wonder people at school have been talking about it for weeks now. Golly gee!”

“Stop saying golly gee.”

 “Tallyho, chaps!”
 “Stop saying things!” He snarls, letting go of me only when we’re around the corner and a tea shop separates us from Madison’s view.
“Things!” I shout.

And this one below is one of the most hilarious scenes i've ever read!

“I feel fine! I’m at least sixteen fines,” I assure him. “Look! I can breathe! I can use my legs!” I do bicycle motions in the seat. “I can headbang!
I bang my head twice and Jack has the fortuitous intuition to roll down the window seconds before I vomit out of it. When I empty my stomach of the last 
remnants of my noodles, I gasp and pull my head back inside.

    “What? Do you get off on watching my fantastic gastrointestinal fireworks? Is that why 
you’re keeping me against my will?”

    “You aren’t well,” He insists stonily. “Sit and relax until you do.”

    “Relax! Please, tell me, how the hell I can relax 
when the world’s biggest snowman is sitting next to me, talking like he has a heart? It’s out of character! It’s….it’s disgusting! You aren’t Jack! You’re some 

fucked-up alien from Zabadoo here to take his body back for your beautiful specimen collection, aren’t you?

Leaving all the fun part aside the story also has a serious side to it.  Absolutely loved Kayla and Wren. & just like Isis just reading about Sophia I like her already. And what the hell happened in the end?? I mean I DID NOT see that coming in any way, angle, side or whatever. Yup I'm so not telling you what the hell it is that I'm talking about since it seems Isis is rubbing off on me now. So yeah go  ahead and grab this book right away. If you miss it.... yup you'll
probably regret it for the rest of you long life. *Grin*

I enjoyed reading this book immensely so I simply cannot wait for the sequel. I swear, these cliffhangers will some day be the death of me.
