All warfare is deception. Even in high school. It’s been nineteen days since Isis Blake forgot about him. The boy she can't quite remember. She's stuck in the hospital with a turban-size bandage on her head, more Jell-o than a human being should ever face, and a tiny bit of localized amnesia. Her only goal? To get out of this place before she becomes a complete nutjob herself. But as Isis’s memories start to return, she realizes there’s something important there at the edges of her mind. Something that may mean the difference between life and death. Something about Sophia, Jack’s girlfriend. Jack Hunter—the “Ice Prince”—remembers everything. Remembers Isis's purple hair and her smart-ass mouth. Remembers that for a little while, Isis made him feel human. She made him feel. She burned a hole in the ice…and it's time to freeze back up. Boys like him don't deserve girls like her. Because Jack is dangerous. And that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening. Her past.

FORGET ME ALWAYS is the second book in the Lovely Vicious series. It picks up where Love Me Never leaves off. Isis is in the hospital after the incident with her mother ex boyfriend Leo. She has completely lost her memory of Jack, but no one else. Anything involving Jack is a mystery to her. There she meets Sophia, Jack’s girlfriend. After awhile Isis’s memories start to come back to her and she begins to remember who Jack is, what he did, and what he means to her.

What I liked:

There was actually a lot I liked about this series, and I really didn’t expect it to be the way it was. It was quite different from what I usually read. Isis is loud and complicated and has a messed up history with a boy she only calls “nameless”. She has sworn to herself that she’ll never love anyone again, and because of what happened with nameless she doesn’t think she deserves love, nor that anyone could love her the way she is. I actually listened to this book on audio for the first little bit, because that’s how I read the first book and I actually enjoyed the narrators voice. But then I switched back to my physical copy, because I read faster that way.

I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did. But Isis was a character that I just loved. She reminded me of myself ALOT. She was always joking or making herself the butt of the joke. Or she had some snarky comment at the ready. She didn’t like being vulnerable in front of people, especially in front of Jack. But she was willing to do whatever it took for her friends to be happy. She is very much a fighter and very curious by nature. Which is why she continued to dig into her friends pasts to find out what happened all those years ago, despite being told to let it go.
?One of my favorite parts about this book is the relationships. Isis is the new girl and she slowly becomes friends with Kayla, and Wren. Who she does anything to protect. I absolutely loved Kayla and Isis’s friendship. They had each other’s backs. I liked seeing that they were just friends. There was no drama, there was no backstabbing. They just talked like two teenage girls. Sara definitely nails teenage voices. These characters felt real to me. They were perceived in certain ways but they had so many other qualities that made them who they were. Kayla throughout the book was seen as kind of clueless or stupid, but in her own way she was smart. And the author never once put her down for having the qualities or being smart in her own way. I loved that about this series. There was no internal girl bashing for the thing Kayla finds interesting

What left me wanting more:

This does have duel POVs between Isis and Jack, which I really enjoyed. But there was a couple times where there was no indication who was talking. One second it would be Isis and then there would be a page break and it would be Jack. Which confused me, and took awhile for me to get into the head of that person. That being said I really did enjoy the chapters inside Jack’s head. Especially in a love/hate book, I love seeing what the guys is thinking at certain times during their conversations!

I would love to see more growth for Isis in the next book. While I loved the way she was written because I know a lot of girls have the same inner monologue. I would love to see her kind of grow as a person. Grow more into loving herself. And not because other people tell her she should or a certain boy does. But because she realizes she has more worth. I would love it if she started to shut down that inner voice telling her she’s ugly!

More Isis and Jack. They didn’t really get a lot of time together in this book and I am really interested to know what happens between them. To be honest I am absolute trash for love/hate relationships. It’s one of those tropes that I will go down with forever.


Overall Wolf did an amazing job bringing these characters to life. Giving them a voice and keeping it true to a teenage voice. While a lot of what happens in this book is so outrageous, I think people will truly connect and fall in love with Isis. A character who is flawed and hurt and a little bit broken. But who loves and tries her hardest to be a good person for those around her. A lot of women and young women will fall in love with Isis and recognize themselves in her. I quite enjoy this series and definitely recommend it to people who like the whole love/hate trope. Or maybe just like a little bit of what the heck is going on in their books. Sara does an amazing job with the characters, and I for one cannot wait till the third book comes out. Be warned this book does talk about rape, abuse, sex, and drinking. It's nothing graphic but it is mentioned.
