Jessica Martin is not a nice girl. As Prom Queen and Captain of the cheer squad, she'd ruled her school mercilessly, looking down her nose at everyone she deemed unworthy. The most unworthy of them all? The "freak," Manson Reed: her favorite victim.
But a lot changes after high school.
A freak like him never should have ended up at the same Halloween party as her. He never should have been able to beat her at a game of Drink or Dare. He never should have been able to humiliate her in front of everyone. Losing the game means taking the dare: a dare to serve Manson for the entire night as his slave. It's a dare that Jessica's pride - and curiosity - won't allow her to refuse. What ensues is a dark game of pleasure and pain, fear and desire.
Is it only a game?
Only revenge?
Only a dare?
Or is it something more?

    I need more of this story! I’m obsessed with Manson and Jess. Their characters just felt so real to me and I know that is why this story connected with people. Everyone knows a Jess and a Manson from high school, and the concept of those two coming together for one explosive night is pure genius. I’m dying to see what happens next!

    to say this book had me squirming is an understatement to say the least! I loved this story & these two characters! I love how Manson can read Jess like a book & doesn’t give in to her without showing her who she is. she was willingly hiding behind a facade even herself didn’t love, just loved the societal aspects of it. but in reality she wanted something else entirely, something only “the freak” could give her.
