A Dose of Pretty Poison, an all-new angst-filled, brother’s best friend, new adult romance and the first book in the Pretty Poison Trilogy from USA Today Bestselling author Kelsey Clayton is available now!
If my parents had it their way, I’d be off at college. Instead, I’m drowning in secrets, every one of them involving my brother’s best friend.
Hayes Wilder is a walking red flag, warning me to stay away. And yet, all I can think about are his calloused hands on my skin. He’s a total player, on and off the ice, but right now, the only playing he wants to do is with me.
Sneaking around isn’t easy, especially when you live in a small town where nothing stays hidden. And when our secret ends up in the wrong hands, decisions and regrets come as a package deal.
I’ve got everything I’ve always wanted right in front of me. All my dreams lying at my feet. But I’m forced to decide if loving him is worth losing myself.
I wish someone would’ve told me that the prettiest of poisons are also the most lethal.

I place a gentle hand on Laiken’s face. Her attention immediately switches from him to me as a mix of fear and confusion fills her eyes.
“I’m going to do something, and I need you to trust me, okay?
”She takes her bottom lip between her teeth and nods. “Okay.”
I don’t let myself hesitate for a single second as I pull her in and cover her mouth with my own. It’s supposed to be quick—soft and simple—but when she wraps her arms around my neck and arches up on her tiptoes to get closer, I can’t help myself. The hand that isn’t on her cheek moves to her lower back and holds her close as we both deepen the kiss.
The second her tongue tangles with my own, the taste of strawberries and vanilla is all I can focus on. In this moment, we’re not in the middle of a party, she’s not my best friend’s little sister, and I’m not kissing her for the sole purpose of making her ex eat his words.
In this moment, she’s mine.
The realization of what just went through my mind pours over me like a bucket of ice water, and I force myself to break the kiss. I rest my forehead against hers as the two of us catch our breath, and when I open my eyes, I see Laiken staring back at me.
