It’s the life I was born to live: billionaire’s daughters, living amongst the rich & famous. But my mom kept me a secret from my dad. Until now.
I am so out of my league. Fancy parties, expensive cars, and a private school for the elite… It sounds like a dream. But everything is not as perfect as it seems on the outside. Here, the secrets are dirty, and the lies comes easy.
Welcome to my fab life.
“You’re so hot, and sexy. I just… I want to lick you.”
I have no idea why, but I laugh. Hard. “You want to lick me?”
“Yeah!” Ty nods. “Can I?”
“Right here,” he answers, motioning around us. “I don’t care who sees.”
I laugh. “No. Where would you lick me at? Like on my body.”
Ty smiles. “Anywhere you want.”
Hmm… I’m liking this. “How about everywhere.”
Ty looks at me for a second. It’s then that I notice his eyes are glazed over. He gets a very serious look.
“Have you been drinking?”
I nod, and put my fingers an inch apart. “Just a little bit. Like half a cup. It was so gross, but I can’t feel my fingers.” I laugh, and poke his chest. “Can you feel that? I so can’t feel it.”
“What did you drink?”
I think for a second. Crap. What did Jason call it? “T… Tequila! That’s it! It burned my throat.”
“Who gave you tequila?”
“Jason.” The ground starts moving beneath me, and I grab onto Ty’s arm. “How is the sand doing that?” I look up to see it’s not just the ground. The palm trees are moving too. “Whoa.”
“Have you ate dinner yet?”
I shake my head, and feel dizzy from the sensation. Ty grabs me to keep me from falling over. “Oops,” I laugh again. “I think… maybe… I’ve had just a little too much tequila.”
Ty puts his arm around my waist, and I lean into him as we walk.
“You smell so good.” I sniff his chest. “Is it weird that I’m smelling you?”
“I am going to feed you, put you to bed, and then kill Jason,” Ty says.
“Awe,” I pout. “But I don’t want to go to bed.”
Ty pulls me inside the house, and we go to the kitchen. He hands me a slice of pizza. “Eat.” I take the slice from him and take a bite. He grabs a bottle of water from the fridge, and takes the lid off. “Drink.” I take a sip.
“I feel sick.” I put down the pizza. “I don’t want anymore food.”
“If you don’t eat, you will get a lot more sick,” Ty explains. He looks very angry. “I am going to fucking hurt him. I can’t believe he gave you so much tequila.”
I put my hand on Ty’s face. “You know what I like about you? Your lips. They’re so soft. And they taste so good. We should kiss more.”
Ty grins. “Oh, should we?”
I nod. “Yep!” I put my head on his chest, and he puts his arms around me. “I like it when you hold me, too. It’s the best.”
“I think I kind of like you like this.”
I giggle. Why can’t I stop laughing. “I don’t think I can feel my cheeks.” I touch my cheek, and feel nothing. The room starts spinning even faster. I’m about to fall when Ty scoops me into his arms.
The Fab Life was a really fast read for me. I was able to read it in less than a day. For the most part I enjoyed it.
I really liked Kihanna. She’s been uprooted and moved to California to live with her father. A father she’s never known. A father that is a billionaire.
All her life she has lived with her mother. I sort of had an idea for why she was sent to live with her dad, but wasn’t quite sure what the reason was. Towards the end the reason is revealed.
Toby is Kihanna’s hilarious new found stepbrother. He totally checks Kihanna out every time he gets a chance and doesn’t try to hide the fact. I thought he was really funny.
Ty is Kihanna’s first boyfriend. He’s your typical horny teenaged boy. He tries to act like he loves Kihanna, but I had doubts about that.
Gabe was pretty straightforward and intense. I liked him. He’s also your typical horny teenaged boy.
And then there’s Jacqueline. She’s a bitch. I didn’t like her at all.
There are a few other secondary characters that I liked and some I didn’t.
The story flowed pretty smoothly. There’s a little element of suspense added in. It’s not really a prominent part of the story, but towards the end I found myself saying: Wait. What? It took a little unrealistic turn. Almost as if it came out of nowhere.
Overall, I enjoyed The Fab Life. It does end with a cliffhanger so I can’t wait until the next book comes out.
