Forget Me Always (Lovely Vicious #2) by Sara Wolf
Publication Date: November 1, 2016
Publisher: Entangled Teen
It’s been three years, twenty-five weeks, and five days since Isis Blake fell in love, and if she has it her way, it’ll stretch into infinity. Since then, she’s punched Jack Hunter—
her nemesis-turned-maybe-something-more—in the face, survived a brutal attack by her mom’s abusive ex thanks to Jack’s heroics, and then promptly forgotten all about him.
The one bright spot for Isis is Sophia, the ephemeral girl who shares Isis’s hospital stay as well as a murky past with Jack. But as Isis’s memories return, she finds it harder and
harder to resist what she felt for Jack, and Jack finds it impossible to stay away from the only girl who’s ever melted the ice around his heart.
As the dark secrets surrounding Sophia emerge, Isis realizes Jack isn’t who she thought he was. He’s dangerous. But when Isis starts receiving terrifying emails from an
anonymous source, that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening.

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.
*What would you be doing right now if you were not an author?
If I wasn’t an author, I’d love to be a baker. Something about baking relaxes me so much – the mixing, the time you have to yourself while the oven’s working its magic. It’s very zen, and very relaxing to do after a long day of writing. I’d love to get better at it.
*5 years ago: what were you doing?
Five years ago, I was in community college! I didn’t get into my first choice, which was a huge bummer for me at the time, but I realized it didn’t really matter where I went to college – as long as I learned as much as I could.
*Do you have a certain writing ritual?
I like to write whenever the mood strikes me, but a good hot cup of tea tends to help a lot. I also like to write when it rains, all day, but that rarely happens here in southern California.
*What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author?
I try not to take any criticism ‘toughly’ – that is, as if it was personal. Criticism is just that – it’s an opinion, and in no way objective. So I try to remember all criticism is subjective; not everybody likes the same flavor of ice cream, so not everybody will like the same thing in books.
*Ever fangirled over another author? Who was it?
I’m a huge fan of J Armentrout! She’s so witty, and her characters are absolutely the most swoon-worthy dudes I ever did lay eyes on. If I could go to one of her signings I’m pretty sure I would embarrass myself HORRIBLY by fangirling my little heart out.
*Is there an author you'd like to meet?
I’d love to meet Emily Bronte. She and her sisters were so fascinating – such smart women in such an oppressive era. She writes so well about the struggle of women everywhere, it would be an honor to meet her in person.
*Biggest writing pet peeve?
I don’t really have a peeve, but I do hate it when I constantly go over my own work just after writing it. Like! Can’t I give myself a break? Apparently not – I nitpick over every single word I just wrote like it’s a final draft. Arghhh.
* Do you read other's reviews of your books?
I do read reviews! I love reading reviews. Good or bad, there’s always great things to be learned from them. I started writing to make people happy, so reading a review that says that makes my day. Even if I read a negative review, I’m just so grateful someone took the time and energy to read my book at all, that I just can’t be sad.
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 the Lovely Vicious series. She lives in San Diego with two cats, a crippling-yet-refreshing sense of self-doubt, and not enough fruit tarts ever.
