Seasonaires by Janna King

For a twentysomething, there is no summer job better than being a seasonaire - No responsibilities, college is barely a thought, and you’re surrounded by glamorous, beautiful people. When life is this intoxicating and seemingly carefree, what could possibly go wrong?

Acclaimed screenwriting talent Janna King makes her fresh and thrilling debut with The Seasonaires. An idyllic Nantucket summer begins like a dream for scrappy Mia from South Boston; Presley, the gorgeous southern beauty queen; Cole, a handsome introvert; Jade, the sultry daughter of a model and music mogul; J.P., the energetic young designer; and Grant, the playful party-boy. These six are working as seasonaires - influential brand ambassadors - for the clothing line Lyndon Wyld. But like all things that look too good to be true, the darkness lurking underneath slowly rises to the surface.

Lyndon Wyld, the chic British tigress who owns the eponymous business, rules their daily life by curating their every move, which the seasonaires are obligated to post on social media for their growing throngs of followers. When corporate greed, professional rivalries and personal conflicts are mixed with sex, drugs, and the naiveté of youth, the results are explosive as the murder that will sully their catalog-perfect lives.
  

My Thoughts
When I first started this book I was like where was this when I was younger HAHA.  Then the more I delved into each of their lives and what they experienced in Nantucket on a daily basis I decided - NOPE I'm good.
Nothing good can truly come from giving a 20 something $10,000 upfront and $10,000 at the end of a summer (a few weeks) for wearing their clothes and showing up at their events and handing out goodies.
From the crazy drug use, the rival clothing designers, uncontrollable drinking and frolicking with each other and sleeping with locals - there is never a dull moment in each and every chapter.
The perfect summer read hands down!
