Summary from Goodreads:
All-access doesn’t
mean no problems.
The three Diamond sisters survived the summer in style after coming to live
with their long-lost billionaire father. But making a place for themselves at
their exclusive new Las Vegas private school is throwing them any number of
gold-plated curves. Savannah’s YouTube stardom turns into a Sweet Sixteen
reality show extravaganza—with complimentary enemies on the side. Dangerous
flirtations don’t keep Peyton from a gamble that will risk far more than she
planned to bet. And when Courtney and the sisters’ archenemy, Madison, uncover
two explosive secrets, it will rock even this town of glittering illusion—and
turn their lives upside down all over again.

Sisterhood, first crushes, and scandalous secrets explode in book two of
Michelle Madow’s riveting series, The Secret Diamond Sisters.

Excerpt

At seventeen years old, Peyton is the oldest Diamond sister. She’s been hurt in the past, but because of it, has developed a thick skin. She will do anything for her sisters, going as far as protecting them from their mom’s outbursts and getting home first from school to make sure everything in the house (including their mom) is ready for them. She’s tough, doesn’t trust easily, and while she has many people she hangs out with, the only people who she feels truly know her are her sisters. She doesn’t like school (she gets restless sitting in classrooms!) and can’t wait until graduation so she’ll be done forever.

Peyton’s a natural night owl, and waking up in the morning is a constant struggle. (Her sisters usually resort to throwing things at her to wake her up, and often yell at her to hurry up showering so they can have time for their morning routines, too.) She needs at least three cups of coffee to get going. She loves rock music, and can usually be found with an earbud attached to her ear, even during her classes. She loves partying and dancing and getting lost in the music. She also enjoys an occasional chill night of movies and television shows, as long as it’s not a rom-com chick flick.

She wears mostly black clothing—why bother with colors when black always looks hot on her? Her nails are usually painted black as well. She’s not afraid to speak up for what she believes in and she will always stand up for her sisters. She tries to not let anyone in to avoid getting hurt—but really she just wants to find that one person who cares enough to break down her walls.
