Her wicked revenge, or his wicked heart…

Hazel McCallister loves her life. Perfect grades. Perfect best friend. Perfect boyfriend. Until her perfect boyfriend cheats on her with her perfect best friend. Now Hazel’s in free fall—until her best friend’s brother, Felix, gives her the perfect idea. Reclaim her power by taking revenge on her cheating ex.

Felix James loves his life. Casual relationships. Loads of surfing. He’s as drama-free as they come. But he can’t stand by when his sister steals her best friend’s boyfriend, and the dude insists it was Hazel’s fault. So Felix vows to help turn Hazel into a girl her ex can’t resist—so then she can break his heart.

With an alliance in place, Hazel’s revenge is all but assured. But with each piece of payback, she feels a stronger attraction to Felix, even though revenge will turn her into a girl Felix could never be with. And soon Hazel has to make an impossible choice: revenge…or Felix, the boy who’s stolen her heart.

WARNING! This book contains betrayal, revenge, and that most tempting vice of all, the bad boy you know you can’t have.

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange of a review. No compensation in any form was received for the review of this book.

I was a bit skeptical if I will like this book when I first saw it in Entangled Teen’s request list but I was seriously craving for some light and fluffy read and THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS BOOK HAS BROUGHT ME.

I wasn’t really a fan of the “falling-for-your-bestfriend’s-brother” trope. I haven’t read that much books that falls into this category and I’m not a big fan of third-wheels!!!

“Sometimes you just know that as much as you want an explanation, no explanation will ever be good enough.”

This book got me hooked from the get-go, I adored the main characters, Hazel and Felix. Hazel is smart, charming and very relatable. I love her relationship with her mom! It’s open and honest.

Felix might be presented as a bad boy, but this guy surprised me big time. I love that he actually cares for both ladies, Hazel and his sister Kimmy, but he chose to side with Hazel because she was the victim, but I think it’s more because of his feelings towards Hazel. His bad boy personality wasn’t actually shown, it was just told and from what I’ve seen in him from the start, he’s actually a softie and I personally loved reading from his POV.

“It means sometimes plans change. It means sometimes the life you think you wanted isn’t the one you truly need.”

I love the chemistry between Felix and Hazel and I truly enjoyed reading their romance in alternating POVs. It helped a lot for the story to flow and develop.

The writing style was simple but very effective. It made me swoon many times that I expected. Honestly, this book was such a big awesome surprise! It’s like I was given more than I expected and I really appreciated it! I definitely recommend this book if you’re craving for a light, fast read with lots of fluff!
