About the Book

Find out what happens when their perfect image breaks in #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken's steamy new adult romance.

Everything was perfect.

Until it wasn't.

Until my family took on a foster girl and placed her across the hall from me. A charity case to look good and a person who should have never existed in my world.

I kissed her to get her to stop talking, and then I kissed her again because I liked the taste of her words—I liked her.

It was our secret until we got caught—that night changed everything.

We became strangers living in the same house, seeing the same ghosts of our past mistakes, but I can't stop thinking about us, about those forbidden moments.

I pretend to hate her, I tell her I'll never forgive her, and then Quinn, my ex-best friend, steps into the picture. I can't tell if he actually likes her or if he has a death wish and just likes pissing me off, but what do I say? Stay away from my step-sister?

She's mine?

I've already had her?

Saying that to him would expose what we were and ruin everything.

We're all three of us living multiple lies, and eventually, I know our ivory tower of perfection is going to come crashing down.

He knows my secrets.

I know his.

And now she knows both.

She wants.

He wants.

But I always—always get what I want.

And what I want is the girl, no matter what it may cost me.
