From internet stars Elle and Blair Fowler comes a scintillating new novel that takes readers Beneath the Glitter of the glitzy L.A. social scene.

Welcome to a place where dreams are made. And where nothing—and no one—is ever what it seems.

After their make-up and fashion videos went viral on YouTube, sisters Sophia and Ava London are thrust into the exclusive life of the Los Angeles elite. Here fabulous parties, air kisses, paparazzi and hot guys all come with the scene. Sophia finds herself torn between a gorgeous bartender and a millionaire playboy, and Ava starts dating an A-list actor. But as they’re about to discover, the life they’ve always dreamed of comes with a cost.

Beneath the glitter of the Hollywood social scene lies a world of ruthless ambition, vicious gossip…and betrayal. Someone close to them, someone they trust, is working in the shadows to bring the London sisters falling down. And once the betrayal is complete, Sophia and Ava find themselves knee-deep in a scandal that could take away everything they care about, including the one thing that matters most—each other.

I’m not on who follows the happening of Hollywood, so I went into this with a little hesitation.It is about Ava and Sophia, who as sisters that have been introduced to the world of Hollywood because of their videos that they have been doing and became “famous” for and their success continues. Ava and Sophia have a strong bond with each other, and that is tested throughout this and the love lives of both sisters are just a mess, and that doesn’t help either. They both are stuck in “love triangles” and with celebrities involved it added to the drama of the relationships. There is also a mystery that need to be solved as to who is trying to sabotage their success. It is discovered who, and it wasn’t who I was thinking, but now these two sisters have some things to work out, and the ending was a pretty good one. Overall, this made for a light and fun read, with the fashion and drama that was non stop. There are some unanswered questions that I’m sure will be answered, in the next book. I did enjoy this for the most part, and I think fans of chick lit, drama and fashion will love it.

This book was better than I imagined. I was a bit apprehensive due to my prior knowledge of the Fowler sisters, but the book was pretty enjoyable. I received an arc from the Goodreads First Reads Program and was excited to read the book.

The book is loosely based on the lives of Elle and Blair Fowler. It's an easy read and I definitely want to read the sequel. There were a few moments in the story where I felt like the characters were a tad bit immature for their age, or times where I just wasn't interested in reading about the parties they attended. If you like books about glamorous lives, then this is your book.

Surprisingly good book!
Good Points
The relationship between the sisters was well developed. They had issues they need to work on and each character had his/her own story.
