Four women… Four very different paths. One incredibly cutthroat world. Welcome to the Jungle.
As America’s sweetheart, Brittany is perceived as the "good girl." The sort to bring her Bible to a photoshoot... only to garner the attention of a most unlikely suitor. Until one mistake irrevocably changes both of their lives forever. Fortunately, both now and then, Brittany has wonderful support systems, including her tribe.
The leader of the tribe and a model who’s fought every battle and obstacle in the industry, Zoe, knows her worth. Until a sex tape scandal rocks her world. She sees no choice but to put her trust in the one man she shouldn’t, to make it all go away and help her succeed. Unfortunately, not only is he mired in New York’s underbelly, he wants repayment... with interest. Namely, her hand in marriage.
Despite her seemingly perfect life, Everlee has problems of her own. Not only has her world-renowned photographer husband been cheating, but it’s actually much worse than that. The things surrounding what he’s done are so dark and dangerous, Everlee’s life may actually be in jeopardy.
And then there's Danica, cold, dead in the ground Danica. Some secrets stay hidden while others are just waiting to be discovered- hers has the power to alter the industry forever.
In the world of the Fashion Jungle, it’s easily eat or be eaten… but, if you make it out alive, you just might have a story to tell - though it will likely be one of secrets, lies, deceit, and loss.
Strap on your stilettos, it's about to get wild.
Based on true stories and events.
“Life. There was no why in life, only free will, decisions built on other life-altering choices. And life.”

There is something about this story that pulled me in when I didn’t think it would be for me. I gave it a go, not just because Rachel helped write it, but because I always like to give a book a shot – you never know. The fashion world or models never really peaked my interest, but there is something about the behind the scene aspect that had me curious.
“Maybe it was possible to find redemption. You just had to look hard enough. And believe it could happen.”
With everything I thought this story was, it was so much more than I expected. There was loss, pain, and so much rivalry I was a bit shocked. The love, and danger, and surprising humor helped draw me in when I thought I wasn’t going to be. Then, when I thought it was all good, I was hit with more sadness than I ever expected. This ride of a story based in the fashion world, it crossed genres so you could not pin it on one thing. I loved that about this book, and it’s what has me recommending it to you.
“Life is life. Sometimes, things just happen. You can’t change the past. You can only make choices in the present that will affect your future.”
If I had one thing that I could tell you about this book, it is that you just never know. You never know if someone is hurting, you never know if that big smile is hiding the darkest secrets you would ever hear – you just never know. It’s a true story about understanding someone’s journey, accepting someone as they are, and loving them harder when they act like you shouldn’t. The underlying current of hope, the thought provoking message, and the full on glitz and glamor of this book was flat-out amazing.
“Funny how the safest place people always expected to find themselves in, was the most dangerous. And the most dangerous? Peaceful beyond reason.”
