At Everett, perfection has a dark side….
Brooke is a highly-motivated coed at prestigious Everett College. She is determined to graduate number one in her class, get accepted at a top medical school, and become a surgeon. She is brilliant, tenacious, beautiful.
Everything is going according to plan, although she’s not sure what to do about Ethan, an attractive guy who would like to be more than just friends. Her classmates and professors are all captivated by her achievements and her outward appearance, with the exception of one student. Only Jessica, a wealthy socialite and Brooke’s complete opposite, senses that Brooke might not be all that she appears. But Jessica has her own problems, fueled by too many prescription pills, energy drinks, and a huge case of snobbery. She’s too busy looking down her nose when she should be watching her back.
As the semester progresses, Brooke’s carefully laid plans are inadvertently threatened. Her sinister past is revealed, and nothing is off limits when it comes to achieving her goals.

I read this book in one afternoon. After finishing the first book Everett it was like a continuation. Upon completion I wanted more information about Brooke and the author informs me there will be a 3rd book. I can hardly wait. I didn’t find any other books by Ruff and if this is the start of her writing career readers are in for a pleasant surprise. James Paterson you have some competition!!!
