How to Break a Boy by Laurie Devore

29102902

Blurb: 

Keep your enemies close, but your friends closer.

Olivia Clayton has mastered the art of tearing others down to stay on top. She and her best friend, Adrienne, rule their small southern town like all good mean girls do–through intimidation and manipulation.

After Olivia suffers a family tragedy and catches Adrienne sleeping with her boyfriend, Olivia is over it. She decides to make a change–but it’s impossible to resist taking Adrienne down one last time. Up to her old tricks, Olivia convinces golden boy Whit DuRant to be her SAT tutor and her fake boyfriend. But when it starts to feel real, Whit gets caught up in Olivia and Adrienne’s war.

Olivia may ruin everything she touches, but this time she won’t go down without a fight–not if it means losing Whit.

And definitely not if it means losing what’s left of herself.

“There are two kinds of evil people in this world. Those who do evil stuff and those who see evil stuff being done and don’t try to stop it.”

My, my, my….. What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. This book was on a next level. Like another plane. Dear Lord I pray I was not this viscous in high school. This book should be the hand out of What Not To Do and How Not To Act and What Does Obsession Mean To You.

I got Devore’d this weekend. I devoured both her books in a mere sitting. She writes these books where you’re really not sure if you like any of her MCs and wonder how the hell, and what the hell and WTF moments. If you read for puppies and rainbows these books probably aren’t for you. There is romance. Its just not conventional? Its not virgins and billionaires. Its snotty ass teenagers that have a mean streak a mile wide. Its girls that use sex as a weapon. Its boys that sleep with your BFF to get your attention. Its your BFF sleeping with your boy cause she can’t take the attention that you get. What the hell happened to the girl code yo?????

There is death and anxiety and LGBT issues and small town mentality. There is football and cheerleaders and its straight up some Mean Girls for your pleasure.

I didn’t have a playlist for this one cause honestly I don’t have any songs that are as mean as the characters in this book.

It was a ride that I 100% enjoyed.
