Taylor Bell comes from a long line of Beta Zeta sorority sisters, all of whom expect her to pledge upon starting at the university. However, Taylor is determined to destroy the rich tradition they hold so dear by eschewing sorority life altogether. Taylor´s resolve soon melts, though, when she falls in with a group of hilarious, ultra-saucy girls who introduce her to all things Greek and soften her to the idea of joining. Eventually Taylor pledges Beta Zeta and embarks on a collegiate career sure to make any sorority sister proud. Soon Taylor´s experience as a BZ starts to feel like a jacked-up, drug-infused, and X-rated fairy tale - especially when reality comes crashing down and a rather lewd sex tape is leaked. The girl in the video looks a lot like Taylor. Has Taylor gone off the deep end? Or is someone trying to frame her? Unless she can prove her innocence and reingratiate herself with the sisters who´ve accused her of leaking the video, Taylor is at risk of losing everything she´s fought (partied) so hard for. 1.

It´s the dead of winter on Gansett Island, and Riley McCarthy´s mood matches the lousy weather as he and his family work to bring their new business, McCarthy´s Wayfarer, back to life. He can´t deny that he´s been in a funk since Nikki Stokes and her twin sister, Jordan, left the island last fall without saying good-bye. Riley, who´d been hired to fix the leaking roof at their grandmother´s home, had liked talking to Nikki and had been looking forward to getting to know her better when she disappeared. Months later, he still thinks of her every day, even if he wishes he didn´t. She´s hard to forget. As the manager for Jordan´s reality TV career, Nikki finds herself square in the middle of the kind of drama she´s had more than enough of, especially since her sister plans to go back to the husband who released a sex tape that devastated Jordan last fall. Enough is enough for Nikki, who quits her job and heads for her happy place - her grandmother´s oceanfront home on Gansett Island, hoping she might run into the sweet, sexy guy who fixed the roof last fall. She liked talking to him and wonders if he stayed on the island for the winter. She really hopes he´s still there. The minute Riley hears that Nikki has come back to Gansett Island, he has to see her. He has to know if the spark of attraction he´d felt for her is still there, and more than anything, he´d love to know why he´s thought more about a woman he met exactly twice than he ever has about anyone else. Come back to Gansett Island for Riley and Nikki´s sweet, sexy story, and catch up with many of your favorites, including Mac and Maddie, Adam and Abby, Shane and Katie, and Kevin and Chelsea! 1.

Reality TV. Celebutantes. YouTube. Sex Tapes. Gossip Blogs. Drunk Driving. Tabloids. Drug Overdoses. Is this entertainment? Why do we keep watching? What does it mean for our kids? In the last decade, the face of entertainment has changed radically - and dangerously, as addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky and business and entertainment expert Dr. S. Mark Young argue in this eye-opening new book. The host of VH1´s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and of the long-running radio show Loveline, Pinsky recently teamed with Young to conduct the first-ever study of narcissism among celebrities. In the process, they discovered that a high proportion of stars suffer from traits associated with clinical narcissism - including vanity, exhibitionism, entitlement, exploitativeness, self-sufficiency, authority, and superiority. Now, in The Mirror Effect, they explore how these stars, and the media, are modeling such behavior for public consumption - and how the rest of us, especially young people, are mirroring these dangerous traits in our own behavior. And it explores how YouTube, online social networks, and personal blogs offer the temptations and dangers of instant celebrity to the most vulnerable among us. Informed and provocative, with the warm and empathetic perspective that has won Dr. Drew Pinsky legions of fans, The Mirror Effect raises important questions about our changing culture - and provides insights for parents, young people, and anyone who wonders what celebrity culture is doing to America. 1.
