GoodReads Purchase


Love, friendship, and betrayal in glamorous, yet often vicious, Hollywood.

Daphne Saito is a beautiful and talented Hollywood screenwriter with a seemingly perfect life. Yet her troubled past threatens to unleash chaos at any moment. 

Daphne has wandered from one meaningless relationship to the next and is afraid to love. Harm has always come to those around her. But when she meets Marlon, she lets her guard down and feels hope for the first time in years.

But an unstable ex-boyfriend plans revenge and an enigmatic woman from her past arrives with a vendetta of her own. Danger is on the horizon for those close to Daphne—and for her.

Praise for The Hollywood Lights Series:

“Pryal pierces L.A.’s film industry veneer to find complex and relatable characters and then winches the ties between them, pulling the reader right into the fray. The result is as psychologically astute as it is engaging.” —Kathryn Craft, award-winning author of The Far End of Happy and The Art of Falling

“Pryal deftly portrays relationships that are under the magnifying glass, obsessive and dysfunctional, while still capturing the complexity and love.” —Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Blackbird Season

“Poignant and thoroughly entertaining.” —Kristy Woodson Harvey, author of Lies and Other Acts of Love

“Katie Rose Guest Pryal writes with a rare understanding about the complexity of new adulthood.” —Tina Ann Forkner, award-winning author of Waking Up Joy
