    "Life meets death..." "...The end meets the beginning." HOLY SWEET MOTHER OF THE LITERARY GODS!!! Sara Wolf has managed to put me back in the "book high" that I never ever want to come down from!!! She has done it again, brilliantly, at that. I've got admit, waiting for Brutal Precious for almost 6 months was such sweet torture! Add to the fact that the publication date was moved due to some issues. I was seriously devastated! BUT! Lo and behold, this book was very much worth the wait! It did not fail me, and it went past and rocketed my expectations! AHHHHHH! I LOVE THIS BOOK! AHHHH I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!! I DON'T WANT THIS TO BE OVER!!!EARLY WARNING: THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN A WHOLE LOT OF QUOTES FROM THE BOOK BECAUSE COME ON!!! IT'S SO BRILLIANT!!!! And oh yeah...it may also contain little bits of spoilers if you haven't read the second book. BUT YEAH PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR FLOODING THIS REVIEW WITH MANY DIALOGUES AND LINES FROM THE BOOK! I mean, you can't blame me, right? This starts off a little over after Sophia's death. I must say the ending of Savage Delight left me utterly speechless. It was really tragic, and of course it is no surprise that after that situation, every character is highly affected because of it."East Summit High sort of wilted after Sophia died."...And most especially our one and only Ice Prince Jack Hunter."I shivered looking at him. He wasn’t putting on the lifeless, emotionless act anymore. He just was lifeless. He was empty. The spark had been sucked out of his eyes, leaving pale shells behind. His entire body, his entire physical presence seemed like a shell – an illusion made of mirrors and brittle frost that would shatter at the slightest touch. He was chilling to look at; like something that shouldn’t still be living, or still moving. A mannequin. A zombie puppet." Isis tried her best to bring life back to Jack, but it seemed like an impossible case. He eventually left and disappeared, leaving his friends, family, and especially Isis worried and much more miserable than ever before. “It’s over,” he said, too calmly.“What is?” I asked, my stomach roiling. He pushed off the wall and walked away with one last word. “Everything.” BUT NUH-UH!!! NO NO NO!!! IT IS DEFINITELY NOT OVER!!! Once again, just when Isis was adjusting to her new college life, and being the independent and crazy girl she is, as well as being bullied by "Nameless" (Ugh I hate Will so much!)...MR. ICE PRINCE JACK HUNTER MCHOTTIE PANTS STRUTS HIS HOT BODY BACK AGAIN INTO ISIS' LIFE AND SAVES THE DAY!"And, like the bomb she is, just seeing Isis again blew cracks in that dam, and she’s going to see me through the cracks, the real me, she’s going to see me like no one else has, like I’m pretending not to be, broken and dead inside and I have to leave, have to compose myself, but she doesn’t let me pull away, wrapping her arms tight around my waist and keeping me pressed against her, against her warmth and smell and her understanding silence." Seriously, that scene was just...WOW! You can feel the bittersweet tension! But being reunited never felt so good!"She is here, she is within reach. She is real and corporeal and angry with me. Maybe she’s never not been angry with me, and that’s why it feels right. We have always been at odds. We have always clashed. After months of feeling wrong, this - staring down my hellion (mine? No, I threw the chance to call her mine away.) – is the only thing that has felt right. The planets are in place, the last clockgear snaps into motion, and the world begins to turn again, as is proper and right." And just a tad bit funny! HAHA!"Everything happens all the time forever, and this would be a terrifying concept if I wasn’t so enlightened and in-tune with the natural forces of the universe, which include but aren’t limited to; A. taco salad, B. taco salad, and C. my own glorious ass (glorioass). Which increases in size directly proportionately to how much taco salad is in the area. Science has come so far." But of course, much to my frustration, they still try to push each other away, especially Jack. And of course, add Will Cavanaugh meddling with their lives and problems of the past into the picture.Isis was like:"All I can do is hope, and move on. I can’t wait around. I have my own life to live. I just wish things had turned out differently, is all. Not like, us dating. Because that would be horribly, stupidly selfish slash impossible in the face of Sophia’s death."And Jack was like:"It’s either a testament to her infuriatingly persistent personality, or a testament to my unwillingness to let go of the last few moments in my life I recall being truly happy. Happy? I’m unsure if I was ever happy, even with her. It’s a mishmash of fuzzy memories and stolen moments of tenderness, all laced with the searing edge of guilt that is Sophia’s face.Maybe I was happy. But it’s pointless. There’s no real value in being happy.There’s no real value in something that doesn’t last."And there friends were like:"It’s hard, I get it. After everything that’s happened…I don’t know what it’s like, but it’s gotta be hard. And I’m sorry. But he really likes you, Isis. And you really like him. And you guys are like, really interesting together and you light each other up in a weird, symbiotic way. And life is short. Sophia taught us that. And I think you deserve a shot at each other before you write each other off completely out of misguided martyrdom."And Charlie was like:“You’re distracting him. You’re a goddamn distraction he doesn’t need right now."And Nameless aka Will was like:“You were a fat, fucking ugly bitch! You were lucky I even let you hang around! You were so fucking lucky I even wanted to touch your fat, stinking carcass! No one else did. No one else does. Not even that fucking pretty boy. He’s just fucking you because he pities you. He sees how pathetic and ugly you are, and he’s taking pity on your piggy ass!” AND I WAS JUST LIKE:Somehow, they start all over again by rebuilding their friendship...But, we all know what happens when you try to just be friends with someone you really really REALLY love like..."If I open my mouth, the darkest spear of secrets would pierce her through.I love you." "I want you. I want you as more than a friend. I want you in my arms, in my bed, where you’ll be safe and ecstatic and all mine. I want to show you how good a kiss can be. I want to show you life isn’t always suffering – it’s pleasure, too. My brain screams it, but my mouth never moves, condemning me to silence. I have to be stone. The slightest crack, and I’ll spill my every secret at her feet – that I crave her like a parched plant craves the rain. That the only time I feel alive – honestly, radiantly alive - is when I see her purple streaks, the outline of her shoulders, her smile."Okay, I just really have to say this. I SERIOUSLY LOVE ISIS AND JACK TOGETHER!!! They definitely make up the most unusual couple, and I think that is what sets them apart. They'll be sweet in a minute, but then start bickering and fighting at the very next second. And can I just say that their fights are the most adorable!!! They're like one of my favorite book OTPs! Their connection is something else, and I just can't help but want to have a relationship like they have! They are just...THE BOMB! Yes okay, I got seriously frustrated when they just didn't give in to their desire for each other, but the all the sexual tension and the waiting was worth it. The way they came back to each other was so magical and sweet and funny and just perfect."I love you...I’m sorry. I’m sorry for saying it, but I love you. And you don’t have to...you don’t have to do anything, or say anything, I mean, I could just drive you home right after this if you never want to talk to me again, I’d understand, because girls saying I love you is something you get a lot and you hate it, I bet, but I realized a lot of things lately and the biggest thing is that I probably love you, I’m not sure, but I think so, and it’s not very romantic or confident to not be sure, but I barely even know what love is, I just sort of learned a bit of the definition, but I know that what I feel for you fits that tiny bit, and I want to learn more, and I think you would help me learn, but also I just love you, no weird creepy learning involved, I just love you, you stupid idiot..." I love the way they show their affection to each other. It's definitely extraordinary, for sure! You wouldn't know whether they'd kiss each other senselessly or start kicking each other! Man, it was the best!Yes, I am a sucker for love-hate relationships! AND HELL TO THE YEAH! THIS BOOK GAVE ME A SERIOUSLY MASSIVE LAUGHING FIT!!! DAMN THIS BOOK WAS SO HILARIOUS ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF ISIS' ANTICS AND DIALOGUES! It’s a fun and unique experience. There’s a lot of sand. I trip on a rock and stub my toe so hard I possibly now have weird deformed hobbit feet. I feel like vomiting. A seagull almost shits on my arm.“It’s okay, buddy!” I shade my eyes and look up at the sky. “Luckily for you, I am both stunningly good-looking and benevolent. I forgive you!” ------They’ll define the rest of my career slash life slash future prospects with Johnny Depp. I have to start taking things mildly seriously, now! Ugh! Just the word sends shivers down my spine. Serious. Seeeerious. Cereal-ous. Trix are for kids. College is not for kids. College is for grown-ups.I don’t feel like a grown-up.I also liked all the characters! They all had fun and appealing personalities, even the secondary ones! Well, everyone except Will! This book also tackled loss and coping, forgiveness, friendship, realization of reality, family ties, and of course, finding one's self. Definitely all-in-one! AND OMG THE FACT THAT THIS WAS WRITTEN IN BOTH ISIS' AND JACK'S POV WAS TOTALLY AND UTTERLY BRILLIANT! I just loved getting inside their heads! It was beyond amazing! Seriously, you can never go wrong with this series! And oh yeah, Jack Hunter...What this book taught me:I can't wait for Sara Wolf's upcoming works! This series gave me one of the best times of my life! This is definitely part of my "SERIOUSLY BRILLIANT SERIES" category! AHHHH I DON'T KNOW!!!! I JUST WANT TO BABBLE ON HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! FIVE FREAKING BRUTAL PRECIOUS STARS!!!

    This review has politely minor spoilers.It pains me to give this book only three stars because I was so prepared to give it a five (because obviously, I have fallen madly in love with the first two books, the characters Isis and Jack even Wren and Kayla, and the author herself, that if I could give the first books more than five stars, I would) but this third book lamentably did not fully live up to my sky high expectations. The first parts kept up my hopes for the book and all the feels I had during the first two books came rushing back up to the part when Jack helplessly couldn’t do anything but hold back his feelings for Isis making Isis pitifully suffer and hold back her feelings for Jack too. I was expectantly trusting that the rest of the story from that point on will see my high regard for the series through but the plot sort of went astray. I feel like several chapters of the book were wasted on unnecessary events and material when they could have been used to further develop and focus on Jack and Isis’ character and their story and when it came to the chapters meant for such development, they became too hurried and a bit bereft of merit and substance. It even came to a point where I had to ask if this was really the final installment of this amazing series I’ve come to admire...because it could easily have been mistaken for a cheesy romantic slash detective slash comedy/James Bond story and it felt like there were no proper resolutions for the conflicts in the story. Also up to now, I still couldn't decipher the relevance of the titles from the first book up to the last. :(I still loved the book. I still adore Isis’ sarcastic and hilarious rumor and I still love Jack’s icy cool personality. There were also many events and dialogues that were engraved in my heart that when I was almost convinced to give this book a failing rating, the little pretty and tear inducing moments made me reverse my decision. Also, most importantly, the book was consistently highly entertaining and I also like to take special note of the fact that it gave me a happy ending.Hahaha…I am a fickle pickle. ;)

    Just finished the book and can you see that massive smile taking over my faceIsis' sarcastic demeanor had me bursting out laughing in the crack of dawn and quite possibly waking up the household at 3AM in the morning but who cares, it was infectious. Honestly I feel like we see a desire from Jack we never saw from any of the other books. His desire to be with Isis really made me feel like we meet a deeper Jack who will strive for what he desires. Sadly, this is the end of our journey with Jack and Isis but i'm sure we will meet again when I want to relive the whole adventure with them again.

    So like. It's July 12th, right? And the year is 2014? Where art thou, Brutal Precious?I don't think the world fully understands my predicament, you see. After reading two books out of three in this wonderful, perfect series, I've come to a realization: I am quite addicted to the banter that goes on between Isis and Jack.I need Isis Blake in my life.So Amazon,I would very much so appreciate if you would. You know. Allow me the opportunity to read this book.Not like I stayed up until 3 in the morning so it would officially be July 12th and I could read it or anything.Hell, I'll even pay you? You hear me, Amazon? All I'm askingIs for you To give me the bookAnd no one needs to gets hurt, alright?

    **5 'I'm Stronger' Stars!**“Living is really weird. You never get used to it. But it happens anyway. And sometimes you find things that make it a little more comfortable, and you try to hold on to those things, and the tighter you hold, the faster they slip away.” Although this book dealt with very dark issues, it was also funny and cute at times. I guess I really enjoyed reading this trilogy because of the amount of feelings I experienced while reading. I cried, laughed, and I was very angry at times. I rooted for some characters, and yes, I got shocked many times. There were multiple plot twists that I didn't see coming, and I had few failed attempts of guessing what would happen next.Brutal Precious is the final book in the Lovely Vicious trilogy. It follows Isis, a girl who has been through many hardships, and how she tried to get over it. The end of the second installment was very shocking and traumatic for both Jack & Isis, and now they're both trying to move on. I don't want to spoil anything for the reader because it's hard to write about the plot of this book without spoiling anything. However, I can say that this book isn't YA like the previous books since both Isis & Jack graduated high school and are attending college. It changed into an NA book and this is what I really like in this trilogy.“But what kind of barbed love could I offer her? I’m broken, shattered like a mirror of lies. She would try to pick up my pieces and only cut her delicate fingers on them. Any love I could give her would hurt her more, when all I want to do is heal her. I want to build her back up, not tear her down with me.”The first book, Lovely Vicious, started out when Isis moves to a new town, and attends a new high school. By the third book though, the characters are college students, and so much have happened. By the end of this book, we also get a sneak peak chapter of them older, which only made me so happy. I can honestly say that I cared about the characters because when I read the last chapter, I felt so proud and had to wipe few tears here and there. Happy tears!! As for the characters, Isis was hilarious and cute. She was also strong and went through big character development, which only made her more likable. Jack was kind of hard to like at first since he was very mysterious and the readers didn't know whether he was actually evil, or kind. Wren and Kayla were one of the main characters, and although we don't have a POV from their perspective, they were a very important part of the book. Wren is significant due to his action in the past and his involvement. As for Kayla she's Isis's first best friend, which was a good development for both characters.“Listen to me carefully, sweet girl. Don’t live any other way than the way that makes you happy. If you aren’t happy, leave your lover. If you aren’t happy, quit the job. If you aren’t happy, do more to make yourself happy. Because you are the only one who can make yourself happy.”As for Nameless, he was a great antagonist. An antagonist I would pleasurably smack him on the head multiple times to maybe wake him up from his crazy fantasies. I must applaud for Sara Wolf because although I really hated him, and he deserved everything that happened to him, I felt sorry for him because of his past. He was scarred for life, which only made him twisted and crazy. I don't understand why I felt sorry for him either. Yet, I have mix feelings for him like hate, anger, and also sympathy. I can't help it!! “Hiding is for babies. And ninjas.”As I said perviously, I love the fact that this book has many anime references. & as I have also stated before, I love anime!! So it just made this book even more relatable to me since I'm a big fan of this.“What about your funeral, eh?” She asks. “You mean the one that is never going to happen ever because I am going to gather the seven Dragonballs and wish for eternal life?” She laughs. “Yeah, that one. What’d you want for it?” I muse it over for all of six and a half seconds. “Makeouts. Naked dancing. Maybe a cake.” Anyways, I loved this series, and I must admit, one of my most favorite contemporary reads ever. I just adore all the characters especially Isis. I appreciate all the character development from the main characters to the side characters. It just shows how people change as they grow up. This trilogy have seriously made me think about so many aspects of life. “But this boy. This stupid, wonderful boy just might be worth it.”

    This whole series was so freaking awesome, i literally can not even think of anything else to say or write about regarding it other than you HAVE to read it. I loved every single second of this story. It's been an extremely long time since i can fully say i enjoyed a book so while reading this, i was so giddy, jumping up and down in my seat because this book has finally gotten me out of my rut. Like I've said in the reviews of the past two books, I love Isis and Jack and I love this book and I am so sad it's over but I loved it and you should read it and love it with me. I would looove to have a little continuation of the story, like another epilogue (thats maybe, kind of as long as a book, or maybe 10? I don't know, its just a thought ;) ) A billion trillion stars for this whole series and a billion trillion times thanks to Ms. Wolf for writing this masterpiece. I don't remember if I've mentioned this yet, but i very much LOVED this series. :)Reread: October 17th 2015xxx

    I'm being lazy so just a few scattered thoughts:- I liked the fact that each book in this series is short enough that you'll be craving for more. - Even after reading the 3 books, I still love the heroine (Isis). She's so sarcastically funny and I really love her "talking-out-loud" thing.- I don't get the hero (Jack) sometimes. His actions confuse me (alternating between hot and cold), and I don't understand why he still works for Gregory. I hate that he's screwing other women, even if it's only part of his job. And I hate that Isis knows about it (it hurt her a lot).- I wanted more of Jack and Isis, and I felt that there were a lot of complications and so many things happened which get in the way of them being together. I hated those parts in the book.The Lovely Vicious series made me laugh, swoon, and it even got me depressed at some point. But this is also the kind which you wouldn't be able to put down, and you couldn't help but drag your sleepless eyes open to finish the whole series.

    4.5 stars! ARC kindly provided byEntangled Publishing, LLC via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review. The previous book had left me a big hole in the heart and this one started like this. The story goes on from where everything was left but there was no fast fix up. There was lots of pain, for the heroes and for me reading about them. There were small twists but most of all there were lots of answers. All questions from previous books were answered during this one. Ms. Wolf goes on writing an amazing story dealing with few sensitive issues but she does it with grace. The story is said by a dual POV (Isis' and Jack's) and it's nicely done.Isis felt empty inside and it made sense after the events of Forget me Always. The loss is too big for her and she tries to deal with it with her usual witty comments and different behavior. It was the first time that her attitude didn't feel right to me and the reason I had to remove half a star. On the other hand, she is so young and she dealt with so many difficult situations that I am proud of her that she can still fight back in her way.Jack became again the Ice Prince but in his worse form. He didn't want to fight back or better, he fought in the wrong direction. Although he made me angry with his decisions, I still like his commitment to his heart in his own way.Their interactions were fantastic like always. I cannot have enough of these two speaking to each other, even when their conversation was totally crazy and impossible to follow.The end of the book was great. I think it ended in the best possible way and the last chapter was a treat for me.

    4 I'm going to miss Isis and Jack StarsJackIsisThis series as a whole really caught me by surprise. Though I couldn't understand half of what Isis was babbling about, she managed to crack me up almost throughout the book.This book was definitely very different than the first two books!It's a closure for both Isis and Jack.Isis is braver and isn't afraid to show her feelings this time around.She's not exactly softer though. She's still crazy, spunky and her word vomits are outrageous. But she's Isis. You can't really hate her. I ached for her. I wanted her to throw away her shield and just be free of her past, and she did just that!She was much braver than Jack.I was really glad for more Isis and Jack!!!They really deserve it. Jack was really sweet and I definitely got butterflies!!!I'm glad and sad at the same time this book ended the way it did. I'm glad that Isis and Jack finally got what they deserve, but I'm sad to let go of them. This is what happens reading series I guess. The characters really grow on you more than just stand alones....

    Empecé a leer Lovely Vicious en Mayo cuando una de las personas más geniales del mundo entero (Mi querida amiga Sandra) me lo mandó y me dijo que lo leyera. Y así lo hice. Leí el primero en dos noches (me quedé leyendo desde que llegué de trabajar hasta las 5 de la mañana, para dormir un par de horas e irme a trabajar again). Realmente estaba obsesionada con el libro. Ni Twilight ni Orgullo y Prejuicio me tuvieron tan enganchada como ésta historia.Y así fue como en dos días terminé de leer Lovely Vicious y unos días después al fin encontré Savage Delight, pero en inglés. Me preocupé porque eran muchas páginas y no me creía capaz de leer un libro completamente en inglés. Pero fui capaz. Y lo leí en 3 días. Y amé la historia. Sufrí muchísimo pero me encantó. Y luego vino la dolorosa espera para el tercero... más lo que tardó Sara Wolf en publicarlo (un par de semanas más tarde de lo que había anunciado) pero al fin llegó el día, en que lo pude descargar y empezar a leer.He pensado mucho el por qué de que ésta historia llegara tan profundo dentro de mi (y de otras personas), por qué nos sentimos tan identificadas con Isis sin necesidad de ir pasando por lo mismo que ella, y creo que llegué a la conclusión de que todos en la vida hemos tenido algún "Sin Nombre" que nos destrozó un poco por dentro, que nos hizo algún comentario, nos rompió el corazón, hizo promesas que no cumplió o simplemente, puede que no fuera un "Sin nombre", si no tal vez alguien importante para [email protected] que nos defraudó y nos hizo sentir que no valíamos nada.Y eso, damas y caballeros, es uno de los dolores que llevamos más escondidos, es una de las cosas que nos marca de por vida, que aun con todo el amor de amigos, parejas, familiares... siempre nos va a perseguir. Siempre será aquella sombra que nos persiga y nos recuerde que durante un instante, un segundo, una época de nuestra vida, pensamos que no eramos nada. Que no valíamos la pena, que nadie nos querría.Puede que a Isis le costara tres libros llegar a la conclusión y dejar atrás todo lo malo que le pasó, aceptarse a si misma tal como es y decidir ser feliz.No importa cuanto haya tardado, lo importante es que lo logró. Y eso es decir. Por que hay personas que nunca lo logran, que siguen en el circulo vicioso toda la vida. Ésta historia me enseño muchísimo, y estaré eternamente agradecida.Siempre que piense en ésta historia, la recordaré con una sonrisa. Porque a pesar de todo el sufrimiento y los cliffhanger, es una historia de superación, de amistad, y de aprender a amarse a si mismo. De alejarse de aquellos que nos hagan daño y sólo preocuparse en ser feliz. Ni más ni menos.MUCHISIMAS GRACIAS SARA WOLF.Eres mi heroe junto a Gayle Forman, Jane Austen, Suzanne Collins y Nancy Kress <3

    “I want you, Isis. Not as a friend. Not as an enemy. But as the most beautiful girl I’ve ever known.”••••BRUTAL PRECIOUS WAS GREAT. It made me smile, laugh and cry. THERE WERE SO MANY BEAUTIFUL WORDS “I’d be honored to try marriage with you - ” Jacksmiles. “- you big stupid idiot.”I love you. But what kind of barbed love could I offer her? I’m broken, shattered like a mirror of lies. She would try to pick up my pieces and only cut her delicate fingers on them.AND FUNNY MOMENTS “Wrap your willy before you get silly,” I remind. Jack facepalms spectacularly and I count at itas a victory because at least he is not sad-looking, he is something-else-looking and it’s not much, butit’s better than sad.I growl and push her gently back on the pillows. “And you,” I inhale her wrist, her hair,etween her breasts, which earns me a squeal and a bop on the head. “You smell like summer andinnamon. I could eat you. I will eat you,” I add. Isis flushes.“I-If I had known you were into cannibalism, I would n-not have agreed to this in the firstlace.”“Hey there, who are you here to see?” He asks.“Um,” My brain scrabbles for a reason, and like all good brains, makes me blurt the first thingthat comes to mind instead. “Jesus….? Christ.”Sara has really done it again. I'm happy about the ending and sad that it's all over. I'm gonna miss Isis and Jack so much. Mostly Isis because she's really a cool funny girl. And I'm thankful to Sara Wolf for introducing these amazing characters to us that will forever be in our hearts...my heart. Kyle laughs. “God, you’re cool.”“It’s been said,” I agree. “Screamed, really. By my enemies. Just before I decapitate them.”

    This is really refreshingly different and challenging read with unexpected twists that will drew you in with no signs of letting go.. 5 STARS!!!It's really hard to describe these characters, I mean, they are so flawed, but in the end, that's what makes them real. Meet Isis BlakeShe is just a weak and broken girl who hides herself behind a tough and sarcastic facade. Meet Jack Hunter aka The Ice PrinceResident hottie, smart, cocky, but just as weak as Isis.What I loved the most is Isis, even tho Jack is swoon worthy, but her wittiness and sarcastic demeanor are what makes these books so good.These books are a little bit of everything. I really enjoyed this story. It was funny, beautiful and a real tear-jerker. I highly recommend this amazing series.

    It feels like I was waiting forever for this book and I was so looking forward to reading the conclusion to Isis and Jack's story.It opens several months after the funeral and Isis is trying to get on with her life in the wake of Jack's sudden departure. She moves to college, strikes up some new friendships and is trying to move forward when Nameless shows up on campus. Then Jack makes an appearance and her heart starts to hurt all over again. Jack is battling his feelings and he's determined to stay away from Isis before he ruins another girl that he loves.I enjoyed that we got dual POV here and it helped because otherwise, I think I would have done a total U-turn on my feelings for Jack. He's in a whole world of pain and shutting Isis out from misguided protection, but at least I could understand where it was coming from.Isis is her usual crazy, nutty self and I loved how she didn't apologize for that. I felt her fear with Nameless but she was strong and brave in the end confrontation.When our couple finally admits their feelings the romance was everything I had been hoping for and more. This pair is so perfect together and I loved it!I love my angst and drama and this book had enough of that to hold my attention. I also adore Sara's writing style and her prose is great. Without a shadow of a doubt, the best thing about this series are the two mains and the funny witty banter between them. Sometimes Isis behavior was downright cringy but I've got to give kudos to Sara for creating a unique, refreshingly different one a kind female heroine. She has her flaws and her strengths and she undergoes great development as the series progresses. Jack is an unlikely male hero in some ways but no less interesting and definitely swoon worthy. Characterization was superb.However, there were a few issues that stopped me from rating this five stars. The first quarter of the book is very slow moving and not much happens. I've been waiting for three books for our couple to get together and they only did at the 77% mark on my kindle - I just didn't get enough of their romance or enough scenes of them together and the epilogue felt rushed and unsatisfactory. The other issue I have is with the Nameless subplot - it lacked depth and credibility as a result and I think more could've been done with it.In summary, though, this was a stellar conclusion to a fabulous series and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.Thanks to Entangled Teen for providing an ARC of this book, which I have voluntarily reviewed. This review will appear on my blog on June 2nd - http://myyanabookobsession.com

    *3.5 stars*What the hell did I do with my teenage years?I didn't become a radical warrior princess on my sixteenth birthday, complete with a talking cat and magically-appearing clothes. Hogwarts didn't even send me a letter and I haven't actually forgiven them for that. Wait until I go to London and find Platform Nine-and-Three-Quarters and slip through to the other side and unleash my rage. I'll make Voldemort look like a sock puppet. And I'll make-out with Draco.I loved SO MUCH Lovely Vicious I decided to read the books in the series all in a row. I don't know if this complicated things, actually. After LV I was so excited and euphoric I expected the other two books to be as much great as the first one. I mean, they're amazing in their own way, but I felt like something was missing. Anyway, Isis was always Isis, and I kept loving her sarcasm and all the jokes and everything. So she's not the problem. The thing is I found the conclusion a little bit hurried, I don't know. Jack's spy thing was hilarious. I mean, it didn't sound real to me, but ok. It's just a book, and he was an escort before playing the special agent role, so. But in this third book he was too lame. And stupid u.u He loved her but kept pushing her away "for her sake". After all she'd been through, how could he be such a jerk? Despite that I still loved them together. They were so adorable, but not cheesy ((view spoiler)[even though that proposal, ahem, made my eye roll (hide spoiler)]).And all those quotes about Johnny Depp, Jack Sparrow, Game of Thrones, hobbits, other "nerdy" stuff, the ever-present 'poop' word made me smile, and laugh, so much...I think I'm going to read all the other books by Sara Wolf. SOON."What about your funeral?""You mean the one that is never going to happen ever because I am going to gather the seven Dragonballs and wish for eternal life?""You talk to yourself so much. Is it like, a birth defect?""It's a side effect of the radioactive waste my mother bathed in while pregnant with me, yes." "I like uncooked ramen noodles and driving like a maniac."

    5 I Love you starsI knew it would be great, because the Isis Blake and Jack Hunter are bombazing. A tragic love story... a traumatic past for both of them, a fight in the present, and a forseable miraculous future together. That's how i would describe it.Jackis as smexy as always. But he is even more now than then. If before he was 1782.88%, now he is 99759.37%. Your brain will die from awesomeness. Don't thank me for the alert. Isis She's as crazy as before. She has inappropriate comments for every situation. I practically farted on myself, she isthatfunny.Anyways.

    Эта часть на редкость идиотична! Автор просто жжет. Я надеялась, что к третей книги Айсис повзрослеет, но нет. Ее сарказм приобретает космические размер. Она несет такую чепуху, аж зубы сводит. Джек - супер агент, вызывает слезы на глаза, кусок идиотины :D Рада я тому, что серия закончилась хэппи эндом!

    I can honestly say that this is the weirdest, strangest, slightly unnecessarily traumatizing, ridiculously hilarious series I have ever read. I would read this crazy crap again in a heart beat. I will definitely be buying physical copies of this series quite soon.

    "But now that I know someone loves me, it's so much easier to grow courage to start loving myself." Banana shitcake, che sudata, ragazzi!Sara, hai salva la vita. Me lo hai fatto penare ma l'happy ending è arrivato.Eh sì, sarò pure scontato ma che ci volete fare... io senza lieto fine non dormo bene la notte.Un po' troppa carne al fuoco, un po' troppe situazioni al limite del reale.Ma Isis e Jack hanno fatto palpitare il mio cuoricino di shipper dalla prima all'ultima pagina <3 e mi mancheranno da impazzire :')Un grazie speciale a quelle fantastiche ragazze che sono Iz e Anna.Senza i loro status update probabilmente non avrei mai iniziato la serie.E un mondo senza la pazzia contagiosa di Isis Blake, che mondo è?Per non parlare di un mondo senza quel blocchetto di ghiaccio sexy di Jack! Grazie ragazze, mi avete fatto conoscere una bellissima saga e l'ennesima coppia da shippare alla follia ;) “Listen to me carefully, sweet girl. Don’t live any other way than the way that makes you happy. If you aren’t happy, leave your lover. If you aren’t happy, quit the job. If you aren’t happy, do more to make yourself happy. Because you are the only one who can make yourself happy.”

    Awww, ten konec byl přesně to, co si čtenáři po dvou cliffhangerech (totálně na mašli) zasloužili. Well done!---Brutal Precious se odehrává z větší část na vysoké škole, takže se posouváme spíše do new adult. Po skončení 2. dílu Jack na několik měsíců zmizel, Isis dokončila střední školu, odjela na pár týdnů k tátovi a těžce se loučí s Kaylou a Wrenem. Řadou různých náhod a rozhodnutí se na Ohio State nezapíše jen Isis, ale i Jack a (což je nejhorší) taky Nameless. Tenhle mix je samozřejmě pro Isis a Jacka trochu smrtící kombinace, takže dojde na spoustu humorných i děsivých situací. Ke známým postavám přibude praštěná spolubydlící Isis Yvette, Jackův kolega Charlie a Diana, se kterou se Isis seznámí tak, že jí pozvrací boty. Jinak by to totiž nebyla ona. První část knihy se odehrává ještě o prázdninách před odchodem všech na vysokou, kdy se Isis stále trápí tím, co mohla udělat pro Sophii. Na vysoké se musí poprat s Willem, Jackem i vlastní nezkušeností a strachem. Nejlepší byla ovšem poslední čtvrtina knihy, kterou jsem po předchozích dílech opravdu potřebovala. No a poslední kapitolka je jen třešničkou na dortu. Tenhle ztřeštěný příběh mi bude tak chybět, že se k němu ještě určitě vrátím.

    It came to a point where I lost my patience with this book. Loved both books before it but around 65% of this one it totally felt like I could drop it and don’t look back.I kept on going since I wanted my closer after 3 books but it started to feel a lot like “After” and I didn’t like it.Another problem was the fact that I was hoping for a different way for the closer to come. I was hoping that someone else will take the initiative to fix things, to get “it” out in the open and not the person who actually did it.
