Like the last one in the series, it still feels like the writing style is different than the 1st 3. However, I sat down and read this in one sitting last night and enjoyed it. The story seems to be turning darker in each book. Curious to see who Ivy is and how she fits into everything in the future stories. Story was fun and easy to get into

Previously in PRIVATE:
Josh Hollis, Reed's new boyfriend, was arrested since everyone believed that he was the killer. But the murder of Thomas was finally solved when Ariana had confessed to going back, after the girls had kidnapped him and tied him up, and beating him to death, mainly because Thomas loved Reed more. While Ariana was arrested, so were the other girls, while Reed found her way back home, only to find herself wanting to go back to Easton Academy.
Now back at Easton, Reed hopes that it will be out with the old and in with the new. It is a new year, after all, and Reed just wants a normal life at Easton Academy. With Josh still by her side, Reed finds her rightful place in Billings, along with her new roommates, including Constance and Missy.
The Billings rituals have been taken away, and Reed is actually happy that those are out of her way. Now there is less of chance for something to go wrong.
Most of the girls do not mind, all except for Cheyenne Martin, who wants to appeal to tradition and have all the old rituals back. While proving to be Reed's newest enemy, Cheyenne not only wants to be the head of Billings but also wants to sabotage Reed's relationship along the way.
Even though Reed wants history to be erased, she has to know that it finds a way of repeating itself.
You thought all of the secrets and drama were up, but it is now just the beginning. The PRIVATE series just never gets old.
