Summary: Jackson Landis kept secrets. It’s how he got girls into bed, the grades he wanted, and a reputation for being the life of the party.
But now he’s dead, and no one knows how or why. Especially not the four girls whose secrets he protected. Secrets so scandalous they could cause each girl to lose something valuable. Secrets so dark, someone may have killed for them.
The four girls – a campus drug dealer, an overweight bookworm, a closeted lesbian, and a spoiled princess have one thing in common – they’re terrified the things Jackson knew may not have died with him. As Reggie, Haddie, Val, and Livie try to piece together her own role in Jackson’s death, each girl realizes Jackson had some not-so-pretty skeletons of his own.
Which makes a girl wonder, who really wanted Jackson Landis dead?
My Review: I finished this book in a day, I really enjoyed the book.
Warning, this book is clearly book one of a series and it doesn’t end with the murder being solved. I wasn’t expecting that but I am excited I will get to read more of this very fun series.
It does remind me of Pretty Little Liars in a way, but these little girls are not good people. They have flaws, they are bitches they are snide they are judgmental. They are exactly people you know or have known at least once in your life.
Jackson was a dick. Hell I see why he was murdered, he was not a good person but these girls loved him anyway. Which you know happens. You want to hate these girls and call these girls idiots, but you can’t because we have all fallen for the wrong person before.
This plot is well developed enough that by time you hit 30% or more you have already started developing theories of whodunit. I know I have. No spoilers here, but let me tell you I do think it is one of the side characters that have close ties to one of the main four girls.
This book was a fantastic read and I am really glad I took a chance and requested it on netgalley. Very easy 5 stars.
