Description from GoodReads
A steamy Southern beauty makes one fatal mistake
Natalie Hargrove would kill to be her high school’s Palmetto Princess. But her boyfriend Mike King doesn’t share her dream and risks losing the honor of Palmetto Prince to Natalie’s nemesis, Justin Balmer. So she convinces Mike to help play a prank on Justin. . . one that goes terribly wrong. They tie him to the front of the church after a party—when they arrive the next morning, Justin is dead.
From blackmail to buried desire, dark secrets to darker deeds, Natalie unravels. She never should’ve messed with fate. Fate is the one thing more twisted than Natalie Hargrove.
Cruel Intentions meets Macbeth in this seductive, riveting tale of conscience and consequence.
I just loved the writing in this one. This is above and beyond a lot of young adult romance/mystery books I have read lately. I even had to pull out the dictionary a few times. Natalie is one of the characters you want to hate, but you just can’t. The ending took me by surprise as well. I highly recommend this one, but I think this is best suited to older teens since there are a lot of drug/alcohol references and sexual situations.
