From internet stars Elle and Blair Fowler comes a scintillating new novel that takes readers Beneath the Glitter of the glitzy L.A. social scene.
Welcome to a place where dreams are made. And where nothing—and no one—is ever what it seems.
After their make-up and fashion videos went viral on YouTube, sisters Sophia and Ava London are thrust into the exclusive life of the Los Angeles elite. Here fabulous parties, air kisses, paparazzi and hot guys all come with the scene. Sophia finds herself torn between a gorgeous bartender and a millionaire playboy, and Ava starts dating an A-list actor. But as they’re about to discover, the life they’ve always dreamed of comes with a cost.
Beneath the glitter of the Hollywood social scene lies a world of ruthless ambition, vicious gossip…and betrayal. Someone close to them, someone they trust, is working in the shadows to bring the London sisters falling down. And once the betrayal is complete, Sophia and Ava find themselves knee-deep in a scandal that could take away everything they care about, including the one thing that matters most—each other.

Yes, I'm bringing celebrities and Hollywood back! I seriously wonder how I cannot be tired of these but I'm not. Is that weird?
I mean, for one, they are all basically the same. You have the same drama, the same guys, the same EVERYTHING and the only difference really depends on what the author does. Like, Lauren Conrad who is a reality star, writes about a reality star and in this book, we see two YouTube stars resembling Elle and Blair.
No, this post isn't going to be a rant on why people can't be more original (though, yes, it's very true) because although this book reminded me SO MUCH of L.A. Candy, it was good and can certainly hold its own without being compared to LC's series.
Yes, I'll admit, I was bored at some points but it was all right and I didn't feel disappointed. The redeeming aspect was the ending which was SUPERB. Like, legit. I have never read an ending that good in a long time. It literally FORCED me to read the second book - and I can't say I would be unhappy doing so.
And by the way, Dalton. Ohmigod. And Liam. And Giovanni. And Hunter. Ohmigod.
