All warfare is deception. Even in high school.

It’s been nineteen days since Isis Blake forgot about him. The boy she can't quite remember. She's stuck in the hospital with a turban-size bandage on her head, more Jell-o than a human being should ever face, and a tiny bit of localized amnesia. Her only goal? To get out of this place before she becomes a complete nutjob herself.

But as Isis’s memories start to return, she realizes there’s something important there at the edges of her mind. Something that may mean the difference between life and death. Something about Sophia, Jack’s girlfriend.

Jack Hunter—the “Ice Prince”—remembers everything. Remembers Isis's purple hair and her smart-ass mouth. Remembers that for a little while, Isis made him feel human. She made him feel. She burned a hole in the ice…and it's time to freeze back up. Boys like him don't deserve girls like her. Because Jack is dangerous. And that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening.

Her past.

Previously published as Savage Delight, this fully revised and updated edition is full of hilarity, drama, and heartbreak.

Forget Me Always Review...
{WARNING: There will most likely be slight spoilers for the first book. I will try to keep them as minimal as possible, but you have been warned :)}

There is just something about this series that FITS me. It is just freaking special, every little bit of it. I had never heard of this author when I signed up to review the first book, and it definitely wasn't my normal type of read. But from that first page, I was crazy about this series, and now, after book 2, I am even crazier.... about the books, of course!

It has been a few weeks since Isis woke up after Leo's assault. Weeks since she forgot Jack. Weeks since she met Sophia and they became friends. Meeting Sophia changes her in ways, and it changes Sophia too. This relationship will bring to light so many things that have been hidden in darkness for too long. The chance for Jack, Sophia, Avery and Wren to finally be free of the past. But freedom doesn't come without pain. And there is a lot of pain in Forget Me Always.

Sara Wolf is not afraid to hit on some major issues, and she is not afraid to put her characters through the ringer. Each character in this story has their fair amount of pain and heartache, but the way she has written these characters makes them shine like the stars. Sophia is gentle and sweet, but there is a much darker undertone to her. One that is slowly brought to light as the story progresses. Jack is the opposite, seeming to always been callous and cruel, but there is a gentle and caring man under the icy facade. Wren is the epitome of sweetheart, but there is fierceness there. In the past, he may have turned tail and ran, but now he has learned from his mistakes and stands up when he needs to. And Isis, man the words that I could come up with for Isis. She is silly, and talks too much, and says the craziest things, and always seems to live life to the fullest and loudest as possible. She puts off her pain as being nothing compared to the pain of others, and thinks she has no right to hurt when the things she has been through are horrible. But her first thought is always of someone else. The story, the plot, of these books is fantastic in a million ways, but for me, it is ABSOLUTELY the characters that make this series a major standout for me. I will remember them all for a long time to come, and I will revisit them as much as I can because I love them. Dearly.

I won't say much, if anything about the plot of the book because I... can't. There are so many things happening in this book, and they are all important to the story that Wolf started building in Love Me Never. Everything that I want to say is one major spoiler, and I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Just know that the story that began in book one is delved into much deeper in this follow-up. It is darker and grittier than book one without a doubt. But never fear! That same lighter side that made Love Me Never so special is still abundant in this book. Isis is still very much Isis, for which I am thankful!

Sara Wolf apparently likes to leave her readers hanging in major ways, and that doesn't change with this one. But this one ends on a much different note than the last, and it was painful. Be warned. I am going to have to find some really special books to tide me over until May. But for now, I will put the word in for anyone thinking about trying this series out.... DO IT! It is strange and crazy and different and sad and painful, but it is oh so worth it! If you haven't started the series yet, you are in luck. The link to the first book is right below!

About Book One...

Read the book that Kirkus Reviews called: "A complex, witty page-turner, ideal for YA fans of scandal and romance."

Don’t love your enemy. Declare war on him.

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 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.

Previously published as Lovely Vicious, this fully revised and updated edition is full of romance, intrigue, and laugh-out-loud moments.
