Senior year is cooling down, student scandals are heating up, and in sexy South Beach, one teen's wicked dirty trouble is another teen's good clean fun. Until the last killer party becomes exactly that -- a party that kills.
Everyone wants to be just like them: Vanity, the gorgeous celebutante; Dante, the hip-hop dreamer; Max, the second-generation Hollywood bad boy; Christina, the just-out-of-the-closet Latina; and Pippa, the British hottie. They're the fabulous five of the Miami Academy for Performing Arts, and they've got everything and more. But for the unluckiest one of all, that includes a violent death at seventeen...on the night before graduation.
Hot romance, dangerous games, platinum dreams, and deadly choices. For some people, it's an impossible life. For Miami's most infamous clique, it's just another day at the beach...and for one of them, it's going to be the last.

Excerpt from Beautiful Disaster by Kylie Adams
spring break of senior year
Max Biaggi Jr. paced the waiting area of New York University Medical Center, his booze buzz long gone. Nothing like the adrenaline of white-hot fear to kick in instant sobriety.
He was the son of Hollywood's hottest action star, Miami's most celebrated party promoter, and, at seventeen, already had a list of sexual conquests approaching that triple-digit figure with a one and two zeros. But right now he was just an older brother, praying for God to spare the life of his baby sister.
A soft touch grazed his arm. "I'm going to get a cup of coffee. Can I get you some "
Max looked at Bethany with a savage intensity. She was a girl he'd met at the Tar Beach rooftop party practically five minutes ago. They were supposed to be in his hotel suite having sex, not in a hospital lobby sweating out life-or-death news.
"I don't need coffee, bitch. I just need to know that my sister's going to make it." And then Max sank down into a chair and began nervously chewing on the nail of his index finger.
For a long moment, Bethany just stood there, speechless, her face a masterpiece of hurt and embarrassment.
Max ignored her.
Finally, she walked away.
He would never see her again. Like he gave a shit. Bethany was just some party skank he wanted to nail. And suddenly she wanted an upgrade to instant girlfriend who provides emotional support in a moment of crisis Thanks, but no thanks, baby.
Once more, Max put his Sidekick II to work calling his friends ' Vanity, Dante, Pippa, and Christina. And once again, not one of them answered.
Max was alone. He was scared as hell, too. "Come on, Sho," he murmured. "Don't go out like this. That would make me an orphan."
A young Asian woman in surgical scrubs approached, her expression severe and disapproving. "You brought in Shoshanna Biaggi "
Max stood quickly, nodding as he took in the badge that announced her as Dr. Elizabeth Tang. "I'm her brother. Is she ' "
"Are you the one who gave her the drugs "
"N-no ' of course not," Max stammered.
