Bad Girls with perfect faces by Lynn Weingarten

No one is good enough for Xavier. Not according to Sasha, his best friend. There's nothing Sasha wouldn't do to protect Xavier from getting hurt, especially by his cheating ex Ivy, who's suddenly slithered back into the picture. Worried that Xavier is ready to forgive and forget, Sasha decides to do a little catfishing. She poses as a hot guy online, to prove cheaters never change.

But Sasha's plan goes wrong fast, and soon the lies lead down a path from which there's no return . . .

This will be a deliberately short review, not because I didn't like it but because I don't know how to review it without giving away spoilers. This book is intense and dark. It has a lot to say about social media and image. The relationships in it are intense to the point of unhealthy and the story goes to a dark and shocking place. I couldn't put it down as I needed to know what happened next and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well worth a read.
