Wicked Jealous: A Love StoryFeaturedHot
Simone never saw herself as the "cute girl"--she was always the chunky smartmouth. But after a year of avoiding her wicked almost-stepmonster through Zumba class, Simone's now sporting a whole new retro style. And people keep acting oddly. One thing: her stepmonster seems to be trying to accidentally kill her, or at least fatten her back up. And so when Simone's brother offers to let her move in with him and his six roommates for the summer, Simone jumps at the chance for some normalcy. Only living with seven very different college boys isn't exactly going to help her land her very own happily ever after . . .
While I enjoyed the premise as a whole, and found plenty of moments within the pages to enjoy as well, overall this book fell a little flat for me. Part of this is because I'm pretty over the "fat smart girl magically gets the attention of the popular cute boy" motif. And part of it is because I wanted Simone to stop internalizing most of her thoughts and take action instead. It felt exposition-heavy to me.
Still, it's a fun premise and fans of the author should enjoy the book.
