Rhys Martinez has it all.
He is gorgeous, smart, rich and powerful despite only just starting his third year at Edison Academy, one of the most prestigious all boys school in the United States.
In the eyes of the public, he is the darling boy of Victor Martinez, the governor of New York, who has an angelic smile and charming wit. The people of New York and the media adore him, girls and boys (as well as some men and women) are desperate for even just a second glance from him.
It seems like the perfect life for any 17 year old to have.
Unfortunately, reality rarely has much to do with appearances no matter how good Rhys is at keeping them up. Because in reality Rhys is neither sweet nor caring, he doesn't give a single fuck about people in general unless they are his grandfather or his best friend. He fits right in at Edison Academy's worst class despite never being participating in the havoc his classmates tend to wreak. But he never discourages the sick games either because it just seems tedious and he just doesn't care.
Rhys doesn't expect junior year to be anything different either. After the events of the previous year, he has little doubt that his classmates will do their worst to traumatize and torture whatever poor soul they get as their new homeroom and Literature teacher. Upon seeing the pathetic, weak kid that barely looks older than them in his preppy clothes and huge glasses, he knows that he was right, because there is no chance that Dmitri Armand would last more than a week under the Black Sheep's tender care.
Except Armand seems to hide more than a pair of dangerously cold eyes behind his dorky glasses, and Rhys, for the first time since his father exiled him to Edison at the tender age of 12, feels a glimmer of curiosity take hold of him. Because danger and mysteries? Are just shy behind control on the short list of things he craves. And once he wants something, he never stops until he gets it.
