Goodreads Synopsis

In the halls of Georgetown Academy, gossip and rumor abound. But when photographic proof shows up on the front page of The Huffington Post? Then it’s a national scandal.
While Ellie tries to put her life back together, Evan just might get everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect boyfriend and her dream career. But her loyalties will be put to the test when it turns out to be the very people she’s closest to who are standing in her way.
Brinley is determined to find out who is behind the photo leak, all while her own dirty secret spirals out of control. And California girl Taryn is sick of being walked all over and ready to start playing by the rules of D.C., for better or for worse.
In a world where reputation and appearances are everything, knowledge is power. But you’ll have to learn how to use it if you want to come out on top.
What’s Cool from Coliloquy:

My Thoughts: 

The Cover: The cover to Book 2 was similar to Book 1. Only it's daytime, the Lincoln Memorial is used and we see a white dress, not red. Can't decide which cover I like the best, but the way these books are going, the covers are really starting to fit.

The Plot:  Wow, things are really starting to heat up at Georgetown Academy! The plot really does get better and better. I was a bit worried going into Book 2 as Book 1 took so long to really get going, but without a doubt, I am hooked now. Things flowed very nicely, there were no holes or distractions, nothing seemed overdone. I really enjoyed the surprises along the way, and holy @#$%#, I can't believe she did that!! (Read it, you will understand!!)

The Characters: The characters in this series keep surprising me. Yes, they continue to be well written and full of personality, but just when I thought I had gotten a handle on who was the sweet one, who was most likely to stab you in the back, and who was the conniving bitch.....oh wait, that one didn't change lol Point is, you never know how far these girls are willing to go to get what they want.....or help their friends get what they want.

Is it Worth Reading?:  Yes, I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed this book. Things were really just getting started when Book 1 suddenly ended. Book 2 gives even more and then stops abruptly again. Luckily, Book 3 is right beside me so I can start reading. My only complaint throughout this series is the lack of choices. There is only 1 per book so far. Otherwise, I definitely recommend this series and give it 4 out of 5 crossbows.
