Review: Devious Minds by K.F. Germaine

Title: Devious Minds
Author: K.F. Germaine
Series: Devious Minds #1
Genre: new adult
A New Adult Comedy

When Sydney Porter transfers to Northern University, she’s ready to put her past behind her. Landing a job on campus as an irreverent radio personality, she uses the anonymity to air all the campus dirty laundry—earning the infamous Sunday Lane more than a few enemies. But her true passion is spinning records, even if Drunk Earl is her biggest fan.

Sydney’s junior year kicks off with the promise to be amazing. Or at least it does until Gray Peters, hotshot quarterback, unexpectedly reenters the scene. His presence threatens to destroy everything she has going, as well as resurrecting a night Sydney never wants to remember or repeat. She’d run away like a coward, but this time she's determined to stay and fight.

A twisted battle of wit and trickery ensues, with one common goal—vengeance. Sydney and Gray set out to make each other miserable. But misery loves company, and soon, walls are destroyed and truths are revealed that could change their future forever.

Devious Minds by K.F. Germaine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**4.5 Sinister Stars**

It rarely happens that you stumble upon a book which just flew under the radar or author you have never heard off, brings you such joy and laughter. Devious minds is one such book which surprised me with its quirky characters, smart and funny story. I devoured this baby in just one day! Plot is simple and reused, basically a enemies to lover’s troop, but what made it lively was the humor and the ever so vibrant characters.

Gray Peters a star quarterback and Sydney Porter an aspiring DJ, were hooked up during his freshman year. It wasn’t supposed to be like any one night stand but they parted ways in not so good terms. Now after two years when Sydney’s brother Jack, a newbie to the football team was assigned to Gray, they once again cross path but this time the WAR IS ON and neither of them is going to back down until they burn the other to ground. Hence, there begins a never ending battle of bitter remarks, pranks and lots and lots of sexual tension.
“Everyone has someone in their life they want to throttle one minute and make out with the next, and for me that was a petite, dark-haired, snot mouth with an incredible capacity for evil.” 

For me the star of the story was Sydney! she is snarky, stubborn with evil tendencies in other words the bitch you do not want to mess with! she’s also funny, full of life and a protective big sister, like BIG time!
My life is over tomorrow. Sydney Porter will be banished from campus. A mob of angry villagers will have stormed my dorm room with torches in their hands, chanting,
‘Hand over the witch.’ 
I liked every moment of Gray and Sydney together. Loved all the characters especially Jack, he had me at balls. All of them make it a one big hilarious crazy ride! I had this shit eating grin on my face, even after finishing it!

With it’s easy flow in story, charming characters and laugh out loud dialogues, Devious Minds makes an hell of a refreshing entertaining read.
