📖 “Devious Kisses (It’s Just High School #1)” By Thandiwe Mpofu
5 what a ride stars!! This book is definitely a top read for me. One of my all time favorites!!
This is book one of “Its Just High School” series and ends in a cliffhanger.

Here’s the 411 about high school—well, at least for my high school, Clintwood Academy.⠀
💋It’s a fucking warzone.⠀
💋Everyone has a grudge against someone else. ⠀
💋It’s the breeding ground for losers, jealous broken-hearted girls and acne covered fools with zero game.⠀
💋The disgustingly rich kids are vile, vindictive, popular and the mecca of a social life worth a damn.⠀
💋Lastly, high school is simply, survival of the fittest.⠀
And I was the fittest of them all. Once.⠀
Once, before I set up to take the fall for an attempted murder of one of the Fitz brothers, the golden boys of St. Jude High, our sworn rival enemy.⠀
Before I was played for a kiss and it worked. ⠀
Now, the Fitz brothers hate me.⠀
They suspect me.⠀
They want to destroy me.⠀
They know everything about me, and I hate them for it.⠀
And now, we’ll all be living together, like one big, happy step-family. With secrets brimming, hatred festering, and other feelings I have no business having for my step-cousin-brothers or whatever, haunting me night and day.⠀
Now, let’s kiss and be forever rivals…⠀
Holy shit!! Ok I will say I have never read this author before and now I will say.. I am going to read every damn book she has written. This was so beautifully fucked. Omg I don’t even have words. She killed it!!
Julian, Liam, and Cole are like three delicacies. I am in love with each for different reasons. Julian is my type. He is my go to. He is dark, alpha, sexy, asshole and so wrong that he has to be right. I wanted to hate the jerk so many times but he drew me back in. He is so hurt and pained that he doesn’t even realize it. Well everyone in this book is.
Omg the “Ice Queen” aka Mila is perfectly broken. I have loved her since page one. I am obsessed. She has been destroyed and yet this girl sticks her chin up with her head held high and faces her shit. I am amazed. I hurt for her so many times. I cried for these fuckers. Her and Liam are two beautiful souls. They will make the best of friends.
The secondary characters were just as good as the main. I really hope Cole gets a book, and Liam. I want to read these books forever!! I am blown away.
There are so many twists you feel like you just figured out the last one when the next one drops. This is not a short book yet I was nowhere near ready to be finished. It was a page turner. It never got slow or boring. This was freaking fantastic. Why have I never read from this author?!!!
I read this book at work as much as I could and I would be so entranced that I would forget where I was. I could have finished this book this morning but I wasn’t ready to let go. Now I am jonesing for the next book. This author may have destroyed me. She painted these pictures with her words. I could see every scene. I could feel every scene. It was this out of the world movie happening right before my eyes. In fact when I went to sleep after work this morning I dreamt about the entire book. It was the best thing I ever watched.
I feel like I can’t even do this book justice with this review. I wish I used fancy words but I am real. This is how I would tell my best friend about this book. I would end with “bitch buy it now!!!”
Ladies and gents this is a book you will never forget. Grab it now!! Tell me what you think when your done (I’m sorry I’m advance for ruining every other book for you)!!
