Greta has her man, but paradise isn’t all she hoped for.

His frat brothers aren’t exactly welcoming her with open arms. Everyone still thinks she killed Amber. Especially the police. But her lips have been sealed by Blake’s kisses.

She adores spending all her time with him. She adores having such an amazing man to call her own. But her once-wild stallion is having a much harder time adjusting to life as a couple. He balks every time they’re seen in public together, and can’t resist the lure of wicked temptresses like Jessica James.

If Greta wants to keep him, she’ll have to find a way to fit in with his crowd. Luckily, Blake has plenty to teach her about being popular. His lessons are vile, hateful things that make her stomach turn. But she’s willing to do anything to have the life she wants—even if it means teaching Blake a lesson or two of her wn.

He’ll learn. Eventually.

Step back into the twisted mind of Greta Bell.

It's been a long time since I read Boyfriend Glasses by Livia Harper and I almost forgot what kind of adventure she sent me on when sending me it then. Coming back from my hiatus, I decided it was finally time to hurl myself back into the mind of Greta and I was not disappointed.

Continuing where Boyfriend Glasses leaves off, Greta and Blake are happily in love. Well, okay, maybe it's one-sided. It's been so long that I almost forgot how twisted both Greta and Blake are, but I did not receive a subtle reminder I felt was necessary to remind me. No, I was thrown into the deep of their twisted minds.

While this contains a more graphic sexual nature, it complimented their psychotic minds.

Ms. Harper does something a bit different with this book, showing the readers the events that lead Greta to her distorted ways. I really appreciate that we were shown Greta's past with her sister and the way her family reacted. It's one thing to see how screwed up a person is, but it's another when you find the root of the cause.

There was never a dull moment in Party Dress because there was always something fucked up happening. The two nearly have each other twisted around their fingers, but it seems like only one of them has a true hold on the other. It was honestly really hard to put down, which is no surprise when you think about it. I had a hard time taking my eyes away from the first book, too.

Overall, Ms. Harper knows how to put her readers on a wild ass ride through the sick mind and life of Greta Bell. By the end of the book, you'll be wondering if you're the one who's truly fucked up for having both read and enjoy the story. I'm so looking forward to reading the last installment of the Greta Bell trilogy, Diamond Ring. This time, however, I'll be prepared for that final, wild ride through Greta's mind.
