The Blurb

Alexis Wyndham isn’t quite sure what to think about her “friendship” with star quarterback, Brett Pederson. Sure, he has more intelligence than the entire football team combined. Not to mention that fact he’s a great kisser. When he asks her to help him with his college admission essays, she isn’t sure if he’s doing it to spend more time with her or if he’s just using her for her brains. But after her nemesis, Summer Hoyt, makes it clear she’s not finished chasing after Brett, Alexis begins realize how hard she’s fallen for Brett. Now the war is on, and the head cheerleader will find out why she should never take on a Queen B*.

The Review

Damn you, Crista McHugh.

Actually, behind that silly rhyme is an admiration for the Queen B series. The “Damn you” comes from the fact that I cannot put Crista McHugh’s books down.

The Queen B* Strikes Back (The Queen B* #2) by Crista McHugh sees the return of Alexis and Brett and the sexual tension between them has risen again (if you could believe such a thing is possible after reading the first book in the series Confessions of a Queen B). More of the history between Alexis and Summer is revealed and Brett’s loyalties are tested to the max.

Phew! If all that wasn’t enough, The Queen B* Strikes Back (The Queen B* #2) by Crista McHugh takes on a more serious topic. Whilst I won’t reveal what that topic is I will say that Crista McHugh handles it with decorum and dignity. It shows, once again, that McHugh does not talk down to her audience. She treats the young adults reading her book with respect in the knowledge that they can handle contentious issues and that is a really brave thing to do.

I salute you Crista McHugh.

The Queen B* Strikes Back (The Queen B* #2) by Crista McHugh is available now.
