Description (from Amazon): Markham Savoy is Colebrook Academy's most infamous student...
He's also the most attractive, most deviant, and most charming, but who's counting? Every Colebrook matriculant knows that Markham is in the business of making problems disappear. And Colebrook students have no shortage of problems. But his aid comes at a price–an obligation to one day repay the favor. Given the number of kids who get in trouble at Colebrook, Markham has a veritable army of willing minions to do his bidding. So the questions is, after years of collecting and collating the secrets of his peers, what exactly does Markham have in mind?

Each installment of Colebrook Academy is told from the point of view of a different student. As these characters' lives intertwine, each reveals one of the shocking, interlocking secrets that will help Markham leave behind a legacy. A final coup de gr√Ęce that the halls of Colebrook Academy will never forget.

Even though he safeguards the secrets of his classmates, Markham wouldn't be caught dead sharing his own, and he never lets romantic entanglements get the best of him. But when Piper Harrington marches into his life, he's forced to give her something in exchange for her cooperation in his schemes--his very own Colebrook Confession. And that's not the only time Piper brings out an unexpected side of himself.

Will the dirty secrets of Markham Savoy be his crowning glory...or his doing?

Review: The Dirty Secrets of Markham Savoy is a very enjoyable story, the only thing I did not like was the length. In this installment of the series, Markham and his friends are introduced and I feel like the basic groundwork for the other stories are established in this one. Beginning this story, I wanted to dislike Markham and although throughout I felt like he is a manipulator, I did enjoy him. I was happy to see that Markham does have one person/thing in his life that he cannot control. Piper seems like the perfect match for Markham and I look forward to seeing the development of their relationship in future installments. The supporting characters are more than filler as they feel important and the story alludes to more that will be developed later in the series. I look forward to Dane and Audi's story because I sense drama there.

Overall: I was upset with the ending of this book because I feel like as soon as I became engrossed into story, it ended. I sincerely hope that the next book is longer because I would love to see more of Markham and Piper, along with Dane, Audi, Hadley, and Vivianne. Overall, I give The Dirty Secrets of Markham Savoy 4 stakes and I look forward to more.
