Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teen drama at its finest! You know how you pick up a book because it has themes you enjoy reading? I'm a sucker for a lot of themes but one of my absolute favorites is opposites, especially a "jock" with a "nerd". There's just something about two people realizing there is more to them than what the other sees on the outside. Such is the case with Brett and Alexis. I really liked both of them. They're both smart and determined to have things their way. Brett might be able to do no wrong at school, but he's so much more than a smart, talented quarterback. I loved how he was with Alexis and with his family. He really challenged Alexis, or Lexi, as he liked to call her. The only thing worrying was his connection to Alexis's nemesis and former best friend. Brett is surprisingly responsible and mature. He's capable of seeing the big picture. Alexis is a total conundrum. On the outside she's this hard, slightly terrifying girl, with a nose for finding wrongs and exposing them. She doesn't take or accept things that shouldn't be happening. Now she's also forthright most of the time, caring, and has a hidden sweet side. I liked seeing her interact with Brett. He really shook her up. I also liked seeing her snipe with her enemy and even interact with her family whom she doesn't feel like she has much in common with her. I loved her talk with her dad, even if it made me cringe to think of having the same conversation with my own father. This was also one of those books that flies by as you read. I read it pretty quickly in one sitting. I should've been sleeping but I knew once I started readingthere was no way I was going to put the book down without finding out who was responsible for making videos of the girls' locker room and what was really going on between Alexis and Brett. Did he really like her or was this all part of some plot to hurt her? I liked meeting Alexis's friends. I like how they challenged Alexis to step out of her comfort zone and to take action even when it wasn't always the best recourse to take. If you can't tell, I really enjoyed reading this book. I'm astonished by the fact this is my first book by Crista McHugh and she's written more than 50 books. That's right, I said 50. I loved the style she used to write the story. It was really easy to fall into the story and into the lives of the characters. The story didn't end all neatly wrapped, but nor did it end on a cliffhanger. I'm really hoping there will be more books featuring Alexis, Brett, their friends and families. I think this is a fabulous start to a new series and I am eager for more!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Enchanted Book Nook Review I got the chance to read this book for free, in exchange for my honest opinion, by Xpresso Book Tours My Review: Alexis is her high school’s queen b****, she runs a blog that outs the popular kids, and uses her position to help out the unpopular kids (but she has a policy of only one good deed a day). Alexis is paired up with the star quarter back for her health assignment, and while on the outside she’s cold, on the inside Brett is melting her heart. When Taylor asks for her sisters help when an x-rated video of her cheerleading team shows up online, Brett offers to help, and now Alexis is forced to see Brett as more than just a “dumb jock.” So, I’m really on the fence with this book. It most definitely had some funny moments, and wasn’t s terrible read. However, this book seemed to have just a tad too much swear words for me, and it seemed to take a while for the plot to develop. By the time I was half way through the book, I was still waiting on Alexis and Brett and to try and track down who was posting those videos. Positive Elements: Alexis’ best friend Richard, is living shame-free after deciding to be true to himself. Negative Elements: Alexis considers herself a b*. Typically, swear words don’t really bother me in books, unless it’s every other word. This book just seemed to be a little too full of them. The f-word was used so much, I lost track. Male parts are mentioned, in a number of different ways. Alexis’ best friend Morgan sleeps around a lot. Alexis’ dad smokes dope and sleeps around with graduate assistants and is very up front about both. Sexual acts are mentioned. Spiritual Elements: God’s name is both mentioned and misused.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Story!!! Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books. 5-5 (Exceptional) *I received a copy of this book from Xpresso in exchange for a fair and honest review.* Alex is the Queen B of her high school, don’t mistake that for the Queen Bee. She has gained that position when she decided she wasn’t taking anyone’s crap anymore. She has a blog where she exposes anything and everything going on at her school. Kids stay away from her as they don’t want to be her next target. What happens when there is one person who is doing everything but staying away from her? Can he make her see she could be different and still be respected? I absolutely loved this story. It wasn’t your normal story or wanting to fit in and doing what it takes to be “liked.” It is quite the obvious and I think a story that anyone who is picked on at one point or another in their life should read. It’s a refreshing story idea as in the person who used to be made fun of finally took things into her own hands and started exposing those who tormented her for things they did. This story was funny at times, serious at some parts, and just absolutely ridiculous in others. It’s a world of high-school kids so anything was possible. I do think that the author nailed the “scenery” and actions of the others in the story perfectly. The surroundings felt like the characters were high-school kids, not younger not older. It was easy to relate to some of the characters and I think that no matter who reads the story they can relate to at least one character. I enjoyed the ending to the story. The author didn’t end the story in your typical HEA. Don’t get it wrong, it’s still a HEA, but it differs than most endings. It is practical and still very enjoyable. While I read to escape real life to get a break, this book maybe took me back to a few high school days. The difference is this story didn’t make any of those days rough to relive or bring back any negative emotions. I applaud the author in writing this story and the way in which she wrote it. Great job!
