When five hyper-successful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder... Brett's the fan favorite. Tattooed and only twenty-seven, the meteoric success of her spin studio--and her recent engagement to her girlfriend--has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her cast mates. Kelly, Brett's older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now--a role which requires her to protect their shocking secret. Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful bestselling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, non-working actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends--and resentment soon breeds contempt. Lauren, the start-up world's darling whose drinking has gotten out of control, is Goal Diggers' recovery narrative--everyone loves a comeback story. And Jen, made rich and famous through her cultishly popular vegan food line plays a holistic hippie for the cameras, but is perhaps the most ruthless of them all when the cameras are off

I really looked forward to reading this, yet barely made it half way through. It was so disappointing, confusing, and poorly written.

Wish I had read the reviews first. Lousy writing, pretentious and confusing. Didn’t make it past chapter three.

Huge, huge, huge disappointment after the Luckiest Girl Alive. Jessica Knoll needs to stick to what she knows and has experienced.

DNF at page 159. I should have known better, as I eschew this type of reality show in all its permutations. was hoping for excitement but this basically felt like 'catty b!itches espouse feminism but are horrible people' perhaps that was the intention.

Not Jessica Knoll's best effort. I loved "The Luckiest Girl Alive" so I don't know what happened with this book. I did read all the way through it because I wanted to see what happened, but by the time I got to the end I wasn't even sure what HAD happened. I don't mind books with changing points of view, but this one was done in such a confusing manner that I stopped trying to follow along. I just plowed through to the end trying to figure out who had done what to whom.

This book was so boring and poorly written, I muddled through the 1st chapter and then gave up when I skimmed ahead and saw that it was just more description, inner musings, and TELLING of the story instead of SHOWING through action and dialog - the meat of any good story. This author needs to apply way more action and dialog, and less wordy ramblings describing everything. Also the layout is confusing, the writing style unclear and jumbled. I am shocked this even got published!
