More About the Author

I am a total Jersey girl. I grew up in Bergen County, went to Rutgers University, lived in Hoboken for a year (requisite post-college party time) and then moved back to Bergen, got married, and bought a house ten minutes from where I grew up. I graduated from Rutgers with a double major in English and Journalism, worked as an Editor for four years, then decided I liked writing better and struck out on my own. You've been reading my books ever since!

Scandal picks right off where the last book, Suspicion, left off. Reed returns to Easton after a short and nearly deadly break in St. Barths, she discovers that the Billings House has been torn down, and all the Billings Girls have been separated from each other into the remaining dorms. Easton has also received a new headmaster, who's hell bent on creating "equality" on campus, and immediately declares all social clubs forbidden. But Reed isn't giving up on Billings just yet. She receives a mysterious gift that helps her to unlock a forgotten piece of Billings history and teams up with an unlikely partner to do it. But there are people who would do anything to stop them.

I thought it was a great read, finished it in one sitting. This is a truly addicting series and I'm really excited to see where Kate Brian takes the series next. This book left off on an intense cliff hanger, leaving many exciting possibilities for the next installment, Vanished.

Highly Recommend :)

Format: Paperback
With the eleventh installment in the Private Series, Reed finds herself coming back from a disastrous vacation, and tossed into yet another disaster. Billings House is nothing but a pile of dirt, and the Billings Girls are no more. The new Headmaster Hathaway intends to make his mark on the place, and create an equal setting within the school.

But Reed isn't quite done with Billings. When a mysterious book makes its way into Reed's hands, she sets off to re-create the Billings Literary Society. But if she plays by the rules, only eleven can make it, even though fifteen are aiming for a piece of the action, and it's up to Reed to have the final say of who's in and who's out.

I've got to admit, Reed really bothered me in this book. Instead of just letting four extra people in, she had to go and be exclusive. Although, the appeal of the Society is obvious, because it's about more than just Billings, it's about honor, truth, friendship.

Then Reed has some relationship issues, both friendship-wise and romantically. I can say, I felt sorry for one jilted romantic interest, but agreed with Reed's choice in the end.

I enjoyed that the book was back at Easton, which I sorely missed, but I do not see this as one of Brian's best novels in the Private series. I still stand by the fact that the first four were by far the best.

Highlights: An intriguing ending, as usual. I still adore Brian's writing, because she always gets me hooked from the first page to the last. I always find it very difficult to put any book of her's down!

Lowlights: There wasn't too much action going on, and of course, Reed couldn't just use her head for once. This is one of those series where I loved the first books, but now the later ones are not living up to the original standards. I'm hopeful that the next will rekindle my love for the Private series.

RATING: 3.5 out of 5

I adore the Private novels. It amazes me that I keep coming back for more as I do find Reed rather moany and irritating but Kate Brian paints such yummy boys I have to keep coming back.
One big moan is - setting typos aside- I was seriously p'ed off when Kate Brian called Paige Ryan's mother Clarissa Ryan, when she was called Calista Ryan in the books before - seriously is she churning them out so quickly she can't even check what she's named her characters?
Don't get me started on the fact that Sawyers eyes turn from grey in Paradise Lost (gray for those of you in US) to blue in the next book (after Scandal) - Vanished.
You'd think the least she could do was have a page or two on her computer listing her characters Names and physical attributes!!!
Ok rant over.
I still love the books - it would be nice to have a bit more proof reading and fact checking prior to the stories being published.
Ok rant really is over now!

First about the book: It was amazing !!! I can't stop myself untill it ends. The story really keeps you like the others books of the serie, you'll hold your beath untill the lost word of the last page.
And about the place where I bought : the_book_depository was perfect, I had some inssues with the brazilian mail and they help me, they were avaiable to send me another book wihout cost if my mail didn't find the books that were missing. They really belive in your word, for now I'll always buy on then. And the most important the books were in perfect condition and come all protect in a special box.

This book was one of my favorite books to the series. I love how reed got back with josh and how reed and ivy are good friends. This is my favorite book series I HAVE EVER READ. I hope Kate Brian keeps this series going. After you read the first three books you get hooked. I prefer this sreies to the spinoff series of ariana osgood in privelge. In sum, if you havnt read this book you need to!

****SPOILERS AHEAD!****

This is by far the best book in the series!! I am DYING to know what happened to Noelle. I wonder if she herself planned it out, but I kinda doubt it. I loved how Brian made the BLS-Billings should never go down. Either way, this was the best one so far! I CANNOT wait till Vanished comes out! 5 STARS!!

Format: Paperback
In my opinion, this was one of the best Private novels I've read in a long time. I was so excited that the Billings Girls finally returned to Easton , after an entire TWO books being set in St.Barths, I was ready to get to the familiar setting of our beloved Easton. I thought Scandal was excellently paced, and there's just enough mystery in it to remind me of the Private-Inner Circle-Untouchable-Confessions days. The book ended, as always, with a cliffhanger that is leading the series into a new arc. I'm excited for Vanished, and even if your're getting tired of the Private books (I have to admit, the last three weren't the best) you MUST read Scandal(:
