Spite Club by Julie Kriss
First Rule of Spite Club: Don’t fall for your fake boyfriend.
Here’s what happened:
My boyfriend cheated on me with Nick Mason’s girlfriend.
We’re both angry. What better way to get revenge than to pretend to get together out of spite?
Nick is rude and rebellious and completely freaking gorgeous. He's not my type, and I'm not his. There's no way we would work outside of our little game of dirty sex and well kept secrets.
The problem is, he's an addiction. Or maybe a plague.
The more time I spend with him, the more I risk my good-girl image and my carefully built life.
I might want what's bad for me. I might want Nick. And I might have to convince him - if I can survive him.
Evie is a wild child gone good. She’s cleaned up her act, she’s got a respectable boyfriend and she’s ready to put all her bad choices behind her. Until it all goes to shit…
Nick is a bad boy with no intention to ever be good or respectable and he’s the catalyst to Evie going off the rails. He shows her that everything she was working for was all smoke and games. Which, kind of makes him a bastard, but I can’t blame him. Emotions were high.
I am so happy I found this book!
Nick is everything that Evie has convinced herself she does not want or need in her life. And Nick really isn’t interested in trying to convince her otherwise. He has no job, he parties hard and he doesn’t apologize to anyone for how he lives his life. What no ones sees, and what placed him firmly in my LOVE column, was how he took care of his big brother. This was little brother idol worship all grown up and brought into adulthood and once you find out why this is even necessary, you’re going to fucking swoon. Take my word for it.
I also wanted to kick some asses, but that might just be my vindictive nature.
I want to say that Evie was funny. And she is, but that’s not all she is and that’s not sufficient to describe why I liked her so much. She tries so hard to put on a good front. To convince everyone that she’s respectable, that she’s responsible and that she’s left her sordid past behind her. The trouble is, she’s actually kind of a bore as good girl Evie. She’s way more fun when she let’s herself have fun with Nick. She’s silly and kind of a goof and I just liked her. The only think I didn’t like was how she kowtowed to her mother. She needed to tell that woman to step off. I don’t care how well intentioned she is.
These two were definitely so much better together than they were apart.
Now I want Andrew’s story. Because there is so much more with him I need to know.
