Waiting On Wednesday [@lynnweingarten @simonteen]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:


Bad girls get it done.

Sasha’s all-time favorite person is her best friend Xavier. He’s smart, funny, and strange. He’s not just nice but kind. He’s endlessly forgiving, even when maybe he shouldn’t be.

So when Xavier lets his ex, Ivy, slither her way back into his life, Sasha knows she needs to protect him. And not just because she can’t stop thinking about the night she and Xavier almost shared a rum-soaked kiss. No, it’s because Ivy is poisonous. The last time they were together, Ivy cheated on Xavier and he just barely survived.

Sasha has a plan: pose online as a guy to seduce Ivy, proving that cheaters never change. But she soon learns to be careful who you pretend to be—because you can never truly know the darkness inside of someone. Including yourself.

Told in multiple points of view.

I have enjoyed Lynn Weingarten's previous books (The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers, Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls, Wherever Nina Lies).I am interested in  Bad Girls with Perfect Faces because of the different dynamics/relationships it includes: Sasha and Xavier's friendship, the potential romantic possibilities between Sasha and Xavier (plus ho that would/is affecting the friendship), Xavier and Ivy's past, their present, and what there is between Sasha and Ivy.

Then I want to see what all is involved in Sasha's plan - and how things may veer away from what she has planned.

Especially because it is told from multiple points of view, I want to see how this all works, how the relationships and characters are intertwined and how what happens affects each of them.

I also love the title and the book cover. (While I can obviously be completely wrong, I love the lipstick and how, with the whole flies and honey saying, it works with the title.)

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
