From the bestselling author of My Lovely Wife comes a reckless, delicious thriller about a young couple that gives a whole new meaning to the dangers of modern dating.
Wes and Ivy are madly in love. They’ve never felt anything like it. It’s the kind of romance people write stories about.
But what kind of story?
Because when it’s good, it’s great. Flowers. Grand gestures. Deep meaningful conversations where the whole world disappears.
When it’s bad, it’s really bad. Vengeful fights. Damaged property. Arrest warrants.
But their vicious cycle of catastrophic breakups and head-over-heels reconnections needs to end fast. Because suddenly, Wes and Ivy have a common enemy–and she’s a detective.
There’s something Wes and Ivy never talk about–in good times or bad. The night of their worst breakup, when one of them took things too far, and someone ended up dead.
If they can stick together, they can survive anything–even the tightening net of a police investigation.
Because one more breakup might just be their last…
If you like reading about toxic relationships this was one dark and twisted tale. I was immediately drawn into this one, the way the author wrote and left little tidbits and clues throughout kept me so intrigued and flipping the pages to see what little bit of information she would reveal next. Ivy and Wes were both super interesting characters and I could never quite figure out who was reliable or if either of them even were. You also get to the perspective of a detective and this was another interesting aspect that gave everything a cat and mouse feeling. I really enjoyed this addictive read, if you like Carola Lovering this had a similar vibe.
Overall rating: 4.5/5
