I kept waiting for this book to get going but it never did.
RATING: 3 STARS
2018; St. Martin's Press
(Review Not on Blog)
I love the blue of this cover, but the art on it screams, "GIRL BOOK!!!" Reading the synopsis I started y looking forward to this one. This is a fair psychological thriller. It's not exactly what you think and if you are a mystery reader you will see through it. There is a twist, but the twist comes a bit late. I think only some readers will pick up on it early. The authors kept my attention despite the characters being "Gone Girl" types (vapid characters you don't feel invested in). It was worth the read but I would suggest borrowing it from a library rather than buying your copy.

An enjoyable read; I liked being able to keep guessing all sorts of possibilities throughout the book.
There were quite a bit of twists and turns but the ending was disappointing and seemed a bit too far fetched.
I agree with many other reviewers. This was a great book with a few good twists that I didn’t anticipate. But the ending was disappointing in that it felt contrived and unbelievable. Still a fun read though.
Disappointing. Based on the reviews I expected a page turner but I mostly forced myself to read each chapter hoping it would get better. I waited for the climax and it never happened.
I was genuinely surprised by all the twists! It has been a while since I have been surprised!
This book was so hard to put down! It kept you glued! Tons of jaw dropping moments as well! Very good read!
I really enjoyed the beginning and middle parts of this book but found the ending slightly disappointing. That said it is an intriguing book and all the twists make for a pretty decent read.
Very hard to put down for those who like twisty mysteries. Quite a few big twists...the last one was one too many and stretched plausibility...but great fun, nonetheless!
This book is full of unexpected turns up until the very end. The constant is Robert, the prince charming who is swooping in to rescue Nellie from an "average" life without his money and assistance in shaping her destiny. Even though I did my very best to assume nothing as advised, I still found many times when the plot would take a delightful turn and give me a totally unexpected new look at the story. Highly recommended!
This was a great read, reminded me a little of "Behind Closed Doors", but not as intense. Lots of twists and good to the last page.
I wanted to love this book but it was an okay read. The first part of the book intrigued me, I was curious to see where it would go. But then the multiple twists at the very end, where you find numerous twists upon twists jammed together felt a little contrived. A few of them were unrealistic too. A so so book.
Assume nothing is right. With all the twists I was still surprized at the end.
This one is great!! Couldn't put it down. Lots of twists that I couldn't guess
I think I enjoyed this one. I read it very quickly, and always wanted to know more about what would happen next. The separate parts of the book involved many plot twists that I did not see coming. However, I found myself questioning whether the number of character twists were necessary. Everyone is unreliable, and although both male and female characters tend to be extremely unlikable much of the time, the women are portrayed in a very negative light in comparison. This being said, I did think that with the exception of the unhealthy relationship aspect that seems to be a main idea within thrillers these days, the connections between characters and unique plot twists were a refreshing change.
The twist at the end upended my assumption about the book. Worth it for that alone. Very "Gone Girl".
Simply could not put down. Author very descriptive so it puts you right in the scene.

Kind of confusing re who was the present wife, past wife, current girlfriend and, in the end, somewhat predictable.
Solid suspense/thriller. The twist revealed in Part 2 was inventive and surprising. The rest of it felt a little recycled, in the vein of Big Little Lies and other books I've read recently about despicable men and their victimized partners (The Last Mrs. Parrish, for example).
So displeased with this one. Such a disappointment.
