We all love the beautiful girls

"Mia and Michael Slate discover that a business partner and best friend has cheated them out of their wealth on the same night that their love-stricken son Finn passes out in the snow at a party, a mistake that costs him more than he realized was even possible. Everyone finds their own way of dealing with the losses. For Finn, it is Jess, a former babysitter who sneaks into his room at night. Despite Jess's serious boyfriend, Finn desperately tries to move beyond the secretive sex and make her admit to love. As sex with Michael gets rough and their marriage frays, Mia finds solace at an old friend's empty condo, which she begins to covet almost as much as she does her friend. Michael sets his anger loose after midnight at an abandoned baseball diamond in the company of an old pitching machine and a boy who isn't his son. When he creeps onto his ex-partner's property one night and the stranger boy starts talking revenge, the story shifts into more savage terrain. By the final, tragic chapter, none of the Slates are either innocent or spared. We All Love the Beautiful Girls is a story about power, financial dependence, instinct, sex and survival in contemporary society, and if, or how, love fits in."-- Provided by publisher.
