“Her wicked revenge, or his wicked heart…
Hazel McCallister loves her life. Perfect grades. Perfect best friend. Perfect boyfriend. Until her perfect boyfriend cheats on her with her perfect best friend. Now Hazel’s in free fall—until her best friend’s brother, Felix, gives her the perfect idea. Reclaim her power by taking revenge on her cheating ex.
Felix James loves his life. Casual relationships. Loads of surfing. He’s as drama-free as they come. But he can’t stand by when his sister steals her best friend’s boyfriend, and the dude insists it was Hazel’s fault. So Felix vows to help turn Hazel into a girl her ex can’t resist—so then she can break his heart.
With an alliance in place, Hazel’s revenge is all but assured. But with each piece of payback, she feels a stronger attraction to Felix, even though revenge will turn her into a girl Felix could never be with. And soon Hazel has to make an impossible choice: revenge…or Felix, the boy who’s stolen her heart.”
Firstly I’d like to thank the publisher for approving my NetGalley request for this eBook. This was another book where the blurb caught my attention and made me want to know more.
Once I started reading, the first thing that stood out for me was the young feel to the storyline. The writing style matched this beautifully so that I could almost imagine I was right there alongside the characters.
The cheating scene was uncomfortable to read and left me with mixed feelings – pity for Hazel but also pride for the way she handled it. What followed was fast-paced and entertaining. Revenge gone right!
The banter/chemistry between Hazel and Felix was lots of fun to read. The two of them simply exuded sexual tension.
For me, the only thing I would change would be the overuse of certain words/phrases. I found myself rolling my eyes when the same saying was repeated over and over which is a shame because I loved the storyline.
Not Okay Cupid was a fun and sweet read. Highlighting the fact that sometimes life plans can change for the better! It gets 4 stars from me.
