Sixteen-year-old Quinn Hardwick’s having a rough summer. Her beloved grandmother has been put into a home, her dad’s gambling addiction has flared back up and now her worst enemy is back in town: Wesley James, former childhood friend—until he ruined her life, that is.

So when Wesley is hired to work with her at Tudor Tymes, a medieval England themed restaurant, the last thing Quinn’s going to do is forgive and forget. She’s determined to remove him from her life and even the score all at once—by getting him fired.

But getting rid of Wesley isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. When Quinn finds herself falling for him, she has to decide what she wants more: to get even, or to just get over it.

Wesley James Ruined My Life takes bearing a grudge to the extreme. It's all about the inability to forgive and forget. Revenge is the only way to go!

Quinn works in a restaurant with Henry VIII as the theme, where the staff members have to play the part. In some ways, it's her ideal job as her dream is to visit London, after having heard countless stories from her grandmother. She is looking forward to go on tour to London with her band.

Wesley and Quinn used to be good friends until they fell out just before he moved away when they were only eleven years old. He has now returned to Seattle and doesn't expect the reaction that he receives from her.

It's five years later and instead of acting her age, Quinn is still behaving as an eleven years old. Mainly towards Wesley! She is going through a rough time with family problems. On top of it all, her grandmother has been diagnosed with one of the most upsetting illnesses. Upon seeing Wesley who starts to work at the restaurant, she has only one thing on her mind, revenge. The fact that she still blames him for something that happened when they were so young, says a lot about her. Even worse, she doesn't even have all the facts.

She starts devising plans to get her own back and having him sacked from the job. He comes across as being very nice, polite and good fun. He does his best to rekindle their friendship. He even tries to bring up some of the good memories but, she is having none of it. She appears to go the wrong way about most things. What she does to help her dad is completely the wrong thing to do, even if her intentions are good. Then using her friend, Caleb to make Wesley jealous is the most selfish thing that she could have done. She jumps in without thinking about the consequences. Giving someone false hope so blatantly, is totally wrong.

Quinn plays a bigger part than Wesley in the story. Although it's revolved around both of them, I would have liked to have known a little more about him. I like the way it shapes up at the end. It's frustrating at times but, fun, short and easy to read.

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
