Description: All war. No love. Madeleine’s been hurt too many times in the dating
scene to let Byron beat her in some huge prank war. They’ve had their
deserters, their POWS, their casualties, but no one can risk losing the
battle of the sexes.
Except now something strange is
happening at the college...and it’s not just the students. Buried deep
beneath the pranks is real danger, and the only other person who
suspects is Byron. Should Mad join sides with him or does that mean
forfeiting her heart to the enemy?
My Review: I felt like this was really two books in one. Madeleine is dumped hard
by her fiancé and comes up with a battle plan to basically get revenge
on all men. I felt the first half of the book was almost to the point of
downright mean. She was so mean. To men she hardly knew. She and her roommates pull
pranks back and forth with guys in their BYU LDS ward and seriously,
some of them go too far. I understand that she's bitter and angry,
but...there are social limits. I think sometimes it's a natural reaction to lash out when there's been a lot of hurt.
The second half of the book turned
up a mysterious situation, which Madeleine found herself right smack in
the middle of. I actually enjoyed the second half much better (not as
mean) because there was more to the story than pranking.
Content: some mild perilous situations; clean.
