Official Blurb:

Lexi has always been prone to give people the benefit of the doubt. But when she learns that Nick, her best friend, is responsible for her break-up with her first love, she decides to take revenge. And what better way to do that than to torpedo his relationship with his girlfriend?
Except that Lexi has forgotten a tiny detail: she’s hiding a secret, a secret Nick must never know. One that risks destroying their friendship forever.
What started out as a fun game could cost Lexi her best friend … and it may be too late to back out now.

My Thoughts:

I’m afraid I didn’t really enjoy this book. The writing, to begin with, is stilted, and Lexi isn’t a likeable character, she is blunt and abrupt. She doesn’t seem like a nice person, playing with peoples emotions just because something happened ten years ago! She’s not even willing to give the guilty party his side of the story just goes straight for the attack.
The premise for the story wasn’t too bad; it was just poorly executed. The characters kept having the same arguments, constantly begging Lexi to tell them what was wrong and her remaining mute! There were a lot of characters involved or mentioned, and we weren’t really invested in their lives, so it was hard to keep straight who was who!
The book does get slightly better once the author hits her stride, but it only goes from a one-star to a two.
