Book Review: I Was a B*** by Emily Ruben

( I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads Summary: What if you woke up having forgotten the last two years of your life?

After a horrific accident Lacey Jones has to try piece together her shattered past. With no memory of the previous two years she finds herself in a relationship with a man she doesn’t know, and with a reputation for being the Queen Bitch of High-School. 

She decides to keep the secret of her memory loss until she can figure out what happened in these two years she lost, trusting only the mysterious and sexy Finn to help her, but will she continue being that bitch or will she decide to rewrite her story?

This was such a fun read. There were moments when I burst out laughing and there were moments when my heart broke. Lacy wakes up from a two month coma and can't remember anything from the previous two years. She learns that she was in a car accident and everything prior to that is a blur. She struggles to figure out things before the accident and hopes that some of the memories come back to her as well as coming to terms of the person that she had become.

I could not put this book down. I read it in two days and it could have been one. I was hooked from the beginning of the story all the way to the end. This is a good high school drama that has the typical atmosphere of the high school setting. If you liked mean girls you will love this book. Lacy was The Queen Bee of the school. She had the hot perfect boyfriend, two best friends that were her little minions, and every girl wanted to be her. The thing is the Lacy before the Queen Bee status was anything but that. She was quiet and mostly to herself and had best friends since childhood. 

She was such a strong character. She wanted to figure things out on her own with out much help and be her own person. She could not believe the person that she was or did the things that she did do. She changed a lot through out the story.

OMG Finn?!? Can I have him? He was perfect and so patient with Lacy. He had his own struggles to deal with but he put her before him. He is boyfriend goals....just saying. Their chemistry together was so beautifully written. I was hoping Lacy would come to her sense eventually.

The writing in this book was so good. I was hooked from the beginning. It wasn't rushed and the build up to the focus of the story was so good. I really loved the Epilogue.  I thought it rounded up things pretty nicely. I look forward to reading more works by this author. I think "fickle fackle" will be added to my vocabulary. I loved it.
