Seventeen-year-old Lexi Turner has just been dumped by her boyfriend of three years-on the day she was going to, well, do it with him. And to make matters worse, he dumped her for a lifeforce-sucking demon! Devastated by this turn of events, she decides there is only one way to deal with the situation: get revenge. Enter Jase Holloway-Lexi's former childhood friend and adversary to her ex. The plan is simple: somehow talk Jase into pretending to be her boyfriend to make her ex-boyfriend jealous, make him regret dumping her, and make him come crawling back to her on his hands and knees, begging for forgiveness... With Jase on board, Lexi is confident she will get the revenge she deserves. But nothing's ever that simple, and Lexi soon finds out firsthand that sometimes what you want isn't always what you get-and sometimes what you get is what you wanted all along.

My Thoughts

This book was full of teenage drama and tons of heartbreak and laughs. I throughly reading this book, and it was a great debut novel. The Importance of Getting Revenge features Lexi Turner, a girl whose boyfriend of three years dumps her for the new girl in school, and Jase, Lexi’s secret crush from years ago.

Lexi is one hell of a hilarious and fun heroine. I love that her age shows who she is. She is loud, spunky, and a hopeless romantic. I love that she doesn’t care what people think and is extremely caring. There are moments she is immature, but she owns up to her mistakes. But, my biggest pet peeve with her was Lexi was a doormat at times. However, she grows up a lot. When she nurses a broken heart, Lexi has an awesome solution: make Jase her fake BF.

Jase is a classic teenage guy. He is a jock, however, there is so much more indepth. Jase really won me over in this book. The initial ploy to fake a relationship and his actions had me sweating in my seat. I really loved how he showed his true feelings for Lexi. He is such a sweet guy who cares for people. Even though this book is narrated from first person, you could really get a glimpse of Jase.

The fake enemies-friends-to lovers relationship in this book was my favorite. I love how it was a slow-burn. There was tons of drama and nice additions of secondary characters. The drama really did add up to the fake relationships and I liked that it was a push. The romance between Lexi and Jase was kind of a bit cliched, but I like that there was depth and real genuineness to them. Both of them had their bore headed moments, but when they finally made up I was rooting for them. And, the length of the book made the romance have a burn and flicker of angst. I like how I had to keep on reading and reading to get to the very and. And, that epilogue and HEA was really sweet.

Overall, this is a great debut novel. I cannot wait to read more of Abraham’s books. She holds such great potential.
