“When I looked up, his smile was wide and real. “Ready?” he said.
I faked a smile back. I had gotten so good at faking things.
I thought: You brought this on yourself, Sasha. You will have to pretend forever now.
He squeezed my hand again. He couldn’t begin to imagine what this actually was. He had no idea what I’d done. What any of us had. “
This is one of those books that makes you hate being an adult with responsibilities because you just want to eat it up in one sitting. I wish I could have read this while I was working, or showering, or driving (probably not the safest), but hopefully you’ll get what I’m saying. It was simply addictive.
Bad Girls with Perfect Faces, was a nice little reminder of why I enjoy reading thrillers, and also a reminder of why I need to read more of them. Seriously, why don’t I read more of them?
Anyway, the story revolves around Xavier and Sasha who are best friends (who maybe feel a little something extra towards one another if you get what I’m saying) BUT, Xavier, is dating queen bee Ivy, who is basically a manipulative, jealous of everything, needs to be better than everyone type of bitch. Xavier and Ivy are an on again off again type of couple. Ivy is a known cheater. Sasha does not like this. Sasha creates “Jake” a fake Instagram profile and flirts her way into Ivy’s life to prove to Xavier that Ivy is still not a good person. And it all goes SO HORRIBLY WRONG.
That’s all I can say plot wise without spoiling anything. Trust me, you don’t want anything spoiled for you. It’s definitely one of those “less is more reads” where it’s so much better to go into it knowing next to nothing. There’s a ton of “he said, she said” drama involved that makes this book an instant page turner and incredibly hard to put down. It took me a day to finish this and if I didn’t have to go to work I would have read this in one sitting, that’s how addictive it was.
Overall, I was super happy with this book because it was so highly entertaining and constantly kept me guessing on what was going to happen next. I never wanted to put it down. The only mini issue I had with the book was the ending. I tend to like books with a solid definitive conclusion and this was very open ended. But honestly, I can’t really picture any other way this story could have ended so I think it’s really just my personal preference of things that got in the way.
All in all though, I would totally recommend this to anyone who loves YA thrillers!
Until next time!
