She decides to make a change–but it’s impossible to resist taking Adrienne down one last time. Up to her old tricks, Olivia convinces golden boy Whit DuRant to be her SAT tutor and her fake boyfriend. But when it starts to feel real, Whit gets caught up in Olivia and Adrienne’s war.Olivia may ruin everything she touches, but this time she won’t go down without a fight–not if it means losing Whit.
And definitely not if it means losing what’s left of herself.
