They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart was completely iced.
I took her first kiss.
She took the only thing I loved.
I was poor.
She was rich.
The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.
Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.
Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.
Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.
There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.
Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.
Everyone loves a good old unapologetic punk.
But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.
The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.
In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.
Four years ago, he asked me to save all my firsts for him.
Now he lives across the hall, and I want nothing more than to be his last everything.
His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.
Now? Now he is making me pay.
My Review: 5 stars
All Saints High is a spin-off of The Saints series but L.J. Shen. I loved The Saints sereis and I was so excited when I heard about this new series. A difference in this series is that the characters are in high school where as in the old series they were adults.
So lets talk about the first book, Pretty Reckless.
At first I did not like Daria Followhill. I felt that she was a prissy princess who wanted everything. I felt that she was ungrateful for what she had.
I was wrong. Really, really wrong.
Daria wanted to be loved. She wanted to be enough. But she felt that she never was.
Daria made some really awful decisions in her youth. Heck, even in her older teen years she mad bad decisions. (Her mouth being on of her biggest issue. Girl has NO filter!)
But what she never expect was a stranger from her past to show up in her home.
What would happen if he learned her secrets? Would he use this to destroy her?
Penn Scully already knows the secret Daria wanted to keep hidden and he was out for revenge.
What he didn’t know what that the girl he though was the worst person in the world, would make her way under his skin and that he would start to care about her.
But it’s not all sunshine and roses.
There are many secrets out there, secrets that could destroy Daria.
What happens when her secrets get out? What happens when another person from the past shows up and exposes all the secrets? What happens when Penn is forced to choice between two people?
Daria and Penn were an enemies to lovers story. They hated each other for different reason. But that hatred push them together. That hatred made them create a bond that was unbreakable (or was it?).
I will say the only thing that go me in this book was that there were a lot of characters and sometimes I would have to re-read a part to understand what was going on with who, but other than that I loved it!
