From the Back Cover:

Meet the three unstoppable women of TAN LINES

Liza is beautiful, fearless, and slays rival media commentators with her firebrand feminist spin. So why is it that this summer, in the Hamptons, Liza is falling into all the old traps and clichés that she cautions other women to avoid?

Kellyanne hoped that this summer would be different. Waiting tables and playing mistress to a rich developer helps her to stay afloat before her big break as an actress. But why are the phenomenal looks that were supposed to take her all the way leading her to the edge of disaster?

Billie rocks the indie music scene with an appetite for self-destruction. Sex is candy, drugs are fuel, and even her closest friends are disposable. So how is she supposed to find real success when she’s only looking out for number one?

Love. Sex. Glamour. Ambition. Scandal.

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the sun!

“Sexy beach trash of the highest order.”—Elle

“Throbs with intensity...scorching.” —Publishers Weekly

 “A hot, sexed-up read...Smut from the gut.” 
—Cindy Adams, New York Post
