Peek Inside Love Me Never

Seventeen-year-old Isis Blake has just moved to the glamorous town of Buttcrack-of-Nowhere, Ohio. And she's hoping like hell that no one learns that a) she used to be fat; and b) she used to have a heart. Naturally, she opts for social suicide instead

Previously published as Lovely Vicious, this fully revised and updated edition is full of romance, intrigue, and laugh-out-loud moments.

Don’t love your enemy. Declare war on him.

Seventeen-year-old Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, nine weeks, and five days, and after what happened last time, she intends to keep it that way. Since then she’s lost eighty-five pounds, gotten four streaks of purple in her hair, and moved to Buttcrack-of-Nowhere, Ohio, to help her mom escape a bad relationship.

All the girls in her new school want one thing—Jack Hunter, the Ice Prince of East Summit High. Hot as an Armani ad, smart enough to get into Yale, and colder than the Arctic, Jack Hunter’s never gone out with anyone. Sure, people have seen him downtown with beautiful women, but he’s never given high school girls the time of day. Until Isis punches him in the face.

Jack’s met his match. Suddenly everything is a game.

The goal: Make the other beg for mercy.

The game board: East Summit High.

The reward: Something neither of them expected.


"A complex, witty page-turner, ideal for YA fans of scandal and romance." - Kirkus Review

"The Lovely Vicious series blew me away. Gripping, dark, and clever -- truly one of my favorites!" - Penelope Douglas, New York Times bestselling author of Bully

"It's rare to find a unique writing voice that is so enjoyable and done so well. Enjoy the ride!" - J. Sterling, New York Times bestselling author of 10 Years Later

"AHHHHHHH!!!! I love Isis Blake! I want to meet her! I want to be her best friend! OK, I'll settle down now. What a super fun story - soooo well written. The witty mind of this girl is so fun to encounter. Snarky but loveable. Young girls could learn a lot from her. More! I want more of her story! Sara Wolf is my new favorite. And I am one of those hard to please readers!" - Jo Hick, Librarian at Phillips Public Library

5 stars: "Loved. Adored. Fell in love. Cried. This book was everything. I can't wait to get my hands on the next one." - Jessica, The Lovely Books

5 stars: "Sara Wolf gives you what you're looking for even if your not looking for it! A girl who is damaged but is trying to take care of herself and trying to heal in the process. A boy who is the Ice Prince, but is melting because he meets his match, a storm of fire. Secrets will be free, love is what you will feel, even if you don't want it. Darkness and light will collide and you will enjoy being in the process!!" - Laura Leiva, Letter Shelves Blog

5 stars: "Simply amazing!!! I fell in love with this story from page one" - Nicole

"[I]t's funny, snarky, heartbreaking and captivating. Honestly just my kinda book." - Deniz, Closet Geeks and Slo Mo

5 stars: "This book has it all. So yes, I recommend it to everyone." - Bibliophile (Romance Addict)

5 stars: "I laughed out-loud, I cried, I was breathless and I mended a broken heart during this journey." - Vasiliki Tzifaki

"Isis. Was. Everything. She was, quite frankly, HILARIOUS. Seriously, I have never read a character with this much snark, this much sass...her internal thoughts had me in stitches, and the bantering she engaged in -- particularly with Jack -- was just delightful to read. And it wasn't just witty repartee, sometimes Isis would devolve into childish humour too, and I enjoyed the range she showed -- she was more than just one thing. I started highlighting, and soon realized I would be highlighting half the book if I kept that up." - Lenore Kosinski, Celebrity Readers Blog

"The antagonism that goes on between Isis & Jack had me staying up until 2am on a work night because I couldn't put the book down." - Olga Medved

5 stars: "Isis and Jack's story is an awesome, bittersweet war of the roses, teen style that's worth hanging on to that cliff for the next book. I highly recommend Isis and Jack's Love Me Never as a must read." - Debbie, I Heart YA Books

 **5 captivating stars!!** 

I do not understand why I loved this book this much.
I.Could.Not.Stop.Reading it.
I was hooked by Isis's crazy voice,
funny banters,
and fake personality.

 This book deals with dark issues:
✦ Weight loss.
✦ Low Self Esteem.
✦ A dark mysterious past.
✦ Friends.
✦ Fitting in....

«I reach out for his hand, my own trembling. His fingers look so long and slender, and gentle. They feel smooth, and warm. I take hold of a few of them, like they’re a lifeline. A raft in the sea.  A rope in a deep hole.

About the author

NY Times Best Selling Author

Sara Wolf

Sara Wolf is a twenty-something author who adores baking, screaming at her cats, and screaming at herself while she types hilarious things. When she was a kid, she was too busy eating dirt to write her first terrible book. Twenty years later, she picked up a keyboard and started mashing her fists on it and created the monster known as Lovely Vicious. She lives in San Diego with two cats, a crippling-yet-refreshing sense of self-doubt, and not enough fruit tarts ever.
