When Sydney Porter transfers to Northern University, she’s ready to put her past behind her. Landing a job on campus as an irreverent radio personality, she uses the anonymity to air all the campus dirty laundry—earning the infamous Sunday Lane more than a few enemies. But her true passion is spinning records, even if Drunk Earl is her biggest fan.
Sydney’s junior year kicks off with the promise to be amazing. Or at least it does until Gray Peters, hotshot quarterback, unexpectedly reenters the scene. His presence threatens to destroy everything she has going, as well as resurrecting a night Sydney never wants to remember or repeat. She’d run away like a coward, but this time she’s determined to stay and fight.
A twisted battle of wit and trickery ensues, with one common goal—vengeance. Sydney and Gray set out to make each other miserable. But misery loves company, and soon, walls are destroyed and truths are revealed that could change their future forever.
Ohmygawd I love this freaking book!! Gosh I’m so happy I can finally favorite a book I’m reading! This was an amazing book that help me get out of the 4 butterflies funk I’ve been in lately. This novel came out way better than I expected, from the blurb I was kind of afraid the characters would be too harsh for me to love but they totally hooked me in from page one! This is a non-cliffhanger story (whoo!!) that will seriously have you peeing your pants laughing due to all the crazy sassiness!!!
Sydney Porter is a crazy bitch. No one crosses her and lives to tell about it! HA I’m totally kidding about the death thing but they definitely don’t mess with her or hers again. Two years ago she had the best night of her life that rolled into the worst night. It warped her more than she already was and when that nightmare walks back into her life again, she’s all about making him suffer. She is totally one of my favorite heroines that I have ever read! She is utterly and completely a person that I would love to have in my corner. She was amazingly badass and was not sorry about it!
Gray Peters has no idea the storm he is about to be swept into! After an embarrassing and infuriating incident with Sydney and his car, Gray wants nothing more than to ruin her. As the stakes rise higher and higher and Gray and Sydney spend more time together the lines of hate and lust become blurred. Once he gets to know the real Sydney, walls come down and hearts are put on the line. But when everything is torture and games how will anyone’s heart make it out alive let alone intact? Gunnar was not your typical jock and I really liked that about his character. He put up a hard front in front of everyone but even from the beginning he was totally rooting for Sydney to win!
I’m actually really sad that I can’t read more of these character’s crazy shenanigans right now!! This book was so hard to put down even just to eat dinner and as much as I wanted to know the whole story it was hard to finish it because I knew it would end. But HELLS YES this series is getting another book!!!! It will have a different couple as the main focus but I just hope they are as crazy and wild as Gray and Sydney.
All in all this novel takes the cake in love/hate romances! The testing each other’s limits and seeing who was going to break first was soo much fun to read!! They were both pretty twisted but I think that’s why they got along so well with each other, when they weren’t making each other miserable! If you’re in the mood for a love/hate romance that will have you begging for more stories, then come see why it’s so great when Devious Minds think alike!!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
