Forfeit (Original Edit)
Pay your stake. Roll the dice. Do the dare.
Becoming a widow at twenty-five sucks - big style - so Daisy packs her hiking boots and heads back to the Lake District, to the security of best-friend Clara's cottage in Gosthwaite. It'll be just what Daisy needs - anonymity and a fresh start. What she's not expecting is to meet a veritable Knight-in-Shining-Polo-Boots.
Xander's twenty-two and drowning in as much as misery as Daisy, but when he knocks her off her wedge heels, she topples into his world of It-girls, players and Michelin stars.
At a party, embracing a night off from mourning, Daisy agrees to play 'Forfeit', the ultimate game of dares. Five friends each toss £100 onto the table and complete their dares. Round One was a fun way to pass an hour, Round Two isn't for the faint-hearted, but no one wants to stake £10,000 to play Round Three - not until they're persuaded by a vitriolic blackmailer.
£50,000 is up for grabs, but the game's called 'Forfeit' for good reason. Blackmail, betrayal, revenge… Move over Gatsby, there's a new bunch of bored young things in town.
*** Caution **
Forfeit's rated at PG-13, but it does contain strong language and scenes of a sexual nature. Just sayin'. Cx ***
