Ella Wade knew working at a website called The Daily Scandal might lead to an interesting summer job after graduating college. She did not know that one big mistake would pull her into the heart of a sleazy world of publicity where truths are worse than lies and a murderer is on the loose.
When Ella gives into temptation and sleeps with her stepsister Madison's ex, her world flips upside down. It doesn't matter that Madison is dead or that Jaxson Cole wasn't, in fact, her boyfriend but a publicist's stunt to link two of the hottest catwalk models romantically in order to feed tabloid curiosity. The damage is done and with deadly consequences.
Even worse, Jax definitely knows things he won't say. Falling for his epic hotness could mean one good screw will screw Ella for a lifetime.
This was one of the more interesting books I've read lately and I really enjoyed it. I thought Ella's boss was a bit insensitive when he wanted Ella to be the one who attended the press conference, but at the same time I could understand the reason if because their publication is one of the daily tabloids. At least Ella conferred with her mother about how it seemed weird that it was requested she attend the press conference.
Things really took a turn down the back alley of all things weird when Ella makes it to the "press conference" as it were. As Ella gets involved with the investigation into her stepsister's death, she's learning more and more secrets about Madison; it also doesn't help that Ella has had the sexuals with Jaxson Cole, hottie male model, Madison's ex (or was he?) and keeper of even more secrets.
This book does end on a cliffhanger, but I can guarantee that I will be keeping my eye out for when the second book comes out!
