In this, page-turning prequel to the Playing Dirty and Notorious duology, national bestselling author Kiki Swinson never lets up with her high-octane depictions of striving and scheming in the Dirty South, taking readers on a wild ride to the early days of Yoshi Lomax, when she was an ambitious law student making her way in the privileged circles of academia. The perfect storm . . .
Young, irreverent, and reckless, Yoshi is struggling to make good at her prestigious college and keep her demanding mother off her back, while living the good life with her peers. But between the overwhelming workload and hostile professors, she's on the verge of flunking out. Yet that's the least of her troubles when her roommate, Gia, winds up in a coma, and Yoshi finds her diary--and a library's worth of shocking, extremely valuable secrets . . . The perfect edge . . .
For the school's elite-of-the-elite students, their perfect transcripts, priceless connections, and endless entitlements are fueled by an all-consuming round of drug deals, sex, trading favors--and killer leverage. And in spite of her idealistic friend's warnings, Yoshi is convinced she can handle it all . . . The perfect trap . . .
Until Yoshi discovers that every little lie, dirty secret, and easy betrayal is hiding a secret even she isn't willing to keep. Now with everything she cares about on the line, she must make a wrenching choice that could cost her more than her life . . .
