Strap on your seatbelts for this book--you are in for quite a ride. You will travel into the world of high society, limitless spending budgets, assistants galore -- oh, and incredible danger.

Candy is a freshman in college and has a face known by many due to her part-time modeling career. Her best friend, Velma, is from a family with so much money that often times she will fly to another country just for the afternoon. Luckily for Candy, Velma invites her along. It makes for a super-fantastic friendship.

Velma's money and connections help Candy beyond words when she begins getting stalked by a rich, spoiled, and very hot-tempered Preston. He, too, has endless amounts of money and assistants and absolutely will NOT allow Candy to not go out with him. Why would anyone not want to go out with him? He's gorgeous. He's rich. No one has ever turned him down and he's not about to let Candy say no to him.

Velma's family has more connections that Candy ever realized and they are able to help Candy escape to hidden places, dodge tracking devices, create false identities, and get her to other countries without being tracked.

Although this adventure sounds magical, it is anything but that. There is true danger, guns, explosions, and deaths.

Once you begin reading this book, you'll be off and running on this absurd, way-out-there, run-for-your-life adventure. I've never read a book quite like this one, and I'll never forget what it's like to live in the high society world of Candy and Velma.
