Fashion editor Anya St. Clair is on the verge of greatness. A to-die-for wardrobe. Killer social media numbers. And the path behind her is littered with the bodies of anyone who got in her way. She’s worked hard to get where she is, but she doesn’t have everything.
Not like Sarah Taft. Anya’s obsession sits one desk away. Beautiful, stylish, and rich, Sarah’s a natural fashion icon. From her beach-wave blonde hair to her on-trend nail art, she’s a walking editorial spread. Anya wants to be her friend. Her best friend. Her only friend.
When Sarah becomes her top competition for a promotion, Anya’s plan to win her friendship goes into overdrive. In order to beat Sarah, she’ll have to become her. Friendly competition may turn fatal, but as they say in fashion: One day you’re in, and the next day you’re dead.
