"I was thinking of some kind of initiation. Tailored just for her. The kind that will teach her a lesson not to mess with me."
--from We'll Never Tell

Shandra James is a man stealer. It's a sport to her, a game that she always wins. As a pledge of the exclusive Alpha Sigma Pi sorority, she should know her place, and know not to throw herself at a sister's boyfriend. But she's marked a new target: Henry Reid.

Henry's fiancée, Phoebe, and her sorority sisters, Miranda and Camille, decide to teach Shandra a lesson one night. A lesson that involves humiliation but nothing more. But unexpectedly the lesson turns deadly and the three women find themselves facing three new rules: Never mention what happened that night, protect each other, and tell no one. Yet when a murderer comes calling, they each discover that rules are meant to be broken. We'll Never Tell is Kayla Perrin's most provocative, suspenseful novel yet.

Chapter One I saw Evelyn coming from a mile away. It was the scowl on her pretty face that caught my attention. She was known in our sorority house for her unpleasant demeanor, which had only gotten worse since her boyfriend up and dumped her at the beginning of the year, but even at a party like this, Evelyn let loose like the rest of us. So the fact that she was headed straight for me, looking as though someone had spit in her shot of tequila, had me alarmed. She held my gaze as she cut through the crowd of partygoers at the Zeta Omega Beta fraternity party and, curious, I started toward her. "Hey, Evelyn," I said loudly enough that she’d hear me over the pounding bass of the hip-hop that blared on the stereo. I was pretty sure I hadn’t done anything to piss her off. We weren’t close enough friends for that. "Great party, huh?" "Come with me." "Excu—" She took me firmly by the arm and led me back in the direction from where she’d come. "What is it?" I asked. "Did I do something?" She didn’t speak until she’d dragged me about fifty feet, to the entrance of the kitchen. "There." She pointed into the room. "Shandra. All. Over. Your. Man." My eyes searched frantically through the throng of guys and girls milling about. And then I got the shock of my life. There was Shandra James, dressed in a slinky, barely-there red dress. She had a hand on Henry’s chest in an intimate gesture, and her smiling face was upturned to his. "Thought I’d let you know," Evelyn said. "I’d have a little chat with her if I were you. Before she steals your man like she did mine." "Uh-huh," I mumbled, feeling sick as Evelyn walked away. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that I’d already had a talk with Shandra about my fiancé just a couple of weeks before. About two weeks before that, it became obvious to me that Shandra was attracted to my man. The way she’d look at him when he walked into a room. How she’d try to get close to him at a party. Head down to the field to see him after a football game. And I’d already heard the rumors about her last year when she was a freshman—how she went after guys for sport. The way she did with Evelyn’s boyfriend. This year she was pledging my sorority—Alpha Sigma Pi, Incorporated. I wasn’t thrilled about it, but it was to be expected since she was a legacy. Her mother and aunts held high positions on the sorority’s national board. Shandra had to know that Henry was my man, and for the most part I ignored her lustful looks at him, but when I found her down on the football field after a game, trying to get up close and personal with him, I knew I had to talk to her. I kept the talk upbeat rather than accusatory, even though I knew what she was up to. I impressed upon her that Henry was my longtime love and current fiancé, and how much he meant to me. Shandra said she understood, and as far as I knew, she had heeded my warning. Until tonight, apparently. I was too far away to hear what they were saying, but even a deaf person could figure it out. Shandra was no doubt telling Henry how hot she thought he was, how much she wanted him. Fucking bitch. She kept angling her head, doing this "I’m so coy" act. And she was smiling and laughing as if Henry was the funniest person alive. Leaning in close to him, even as she took a long pull from her bottle of beer. And Henry—he stood there as though he didn’t have the brains God gave him. What the hell was wrong with him? As well as having a chat with Shandra about him, I’d made sure to tell Henry to be wary of her. It’s not that I’m superparanoid, or even abnormally jealous, despite Shandra’s drop-dead gorgeous looks. With honey brown skin, she was slim and had a booty like Beyoncé’s, as well as the long, blond-brown hair Beyoncé sported. And I’d heard more than one guy compliment her bright hazel eyes. But the fact that most guys couldn’t help gawking at her when she was in a room wasn’t what bothered me about her. My issue with her where Henry was concerned was that she had a reputation in the sorority house—the kind guys appreciated but girls did not. Henry wasn’t stupid. He had to know that about her even before I told him. And yet there he was, letting her slobber all over him like a bitch in heat. I could hardly keep my anger under control as I watched them. This was a respectable fraternity party, not some low-life ghetto affair. But you wouldn’t know it by the hoochie outfit Shandra was wearing. From all I knew about her, she came from a good southern family, and I doubted she had been a wild child while under her parents’ care. Not that she was the first person to turn into a freak at college—boozing all the time and having tons of sex—but she was definitely the worst I had seen. She was the kind of girl who thought because she was slim and gorgeous, she was entitled to everything her heart desired. "I do not want to have to go over there, Henry," I muttered to myself. "Walk away." Shandra whispered something in Henry’s ear, then laughed loudly. Henry laughed, too. Then suddenly Shandra was wobbling on her designer stiletto heels, and Henry was wrapping his arm around her waist to keep her from falling. "One, two..." I waited for Henry to extricate himself from Shandra once again. But instead of moving away, Henry placed a hand on Shandra’s shoulder as they shared a laugh. "What’s that bitch’s problem?" The question stopped me from marching across the kitchen and wrapping my hands around Shandra’s neck. I turned to face Camille, found her standing there with Miranda. My two best friends. Lord, did I need them right then. "That little heffa is all over your man like white on rice," Camille added, her thick arms crossed over her large bosom. "Like she doesn’t know you’re engaged," Miranda said. I scowled. "It’s obvious she could care less about that." Not that I could fault the pledge’s attraction to him—Henry was a definite pretty boy with his flawless dark skin, muscular body, and six-foot-one-inch frame—but I couldn’t excuse Shandra’s blatant disregard for our relationship. A relationship that dated back to high school. As soon as I laid eyes on him during my freshman year, I knew that Henry would be my husband someday. "Damn, I hate when Henry drinks at these parties," I went on. "He can’t hold his liquor. Look how he’s swaying." But the words were as much to assure me of my fiancé’s fidelity as they were for my friends. "I hear you," Miranda concurred. She shook her head, her long black braids swaying from side to side. "I mean, I’m standing righ
