Enjoyed it on audio; lots of plot twists right into the epilogue.
Enjoyed the end discussion meeting the authors. Supposed to be turned into a movie ( )

A convoluted story of jealousy and deception beyond imagination. It draws you in with its artfully scripted plot which eventually begins to twist and turn. You can’t put the book down lest you miss the next secret revealed and it’s impact on the conclusion.

Nothing is what it seems in this story which makes everyone an unreliable character. Consequently, your opinions shift from who to like and not like. Who can you trust becomes the question.

For Richard, there seems to be way too many women involved in his life. This is the tip of the iceberg of his problems!

The story begins with Nellie, a preschool teacher at the Learning Ladder with her roommate, Samantha, also a teacher in New York City. When Nellie announces her engagement to Richard, a wealthy hedge fund manager, it seems to good to be true.

Then, the focus turns to Vanessa who moves in with her Aunt Charlotte after her divorce from Richard. She is not pleased with the recent engagement announcement and desperately tries to intervene.

The story alternates from different women’s point of view and their relationship with Richard. There’s Emma who carries around guilt from her sorority days when her pledge drowns unexpectedly. She carries the secret of her past which has constantly looking over her shoulder.

It’s difficult to describe the story without releasing spoilers because it is twisted making this review as confusing as the story until the truths are revealed. Don’t take anything for granted and just enjoy the journey! ( )

Wow! I am shocked about this one. I know so many people who loved this, but it is a no for me. I was initially interested within the story. However; the more it went on, the less interested I found myself. Nothing was happening. Nothing. Yes, there was a twist, but it was not enough to support everything else going on. I ended up skimming some of this hoping something else was going to happen. Nope. This one was really disappointing. ( )

I truly appreciate both these authors in two other reads but I am glad I read this one last as it was the least of the three. The chapters change between the points of view of the three main characters. The plot is interesting enough but the characters are all quite weak. The twist do not come to the reader as suspenseful. The ending is a bit much with all the twist being a stretch for the reader to buy in to. Please do read the authors other works as they are quite good! ( )

Vanessa marries a man she believes she can spend her whole life with. It isn't long before she figures out that he is a control freak, and he somehow manipulates her into a life she cannot continue. When she discovers he is seeing someone else, the situation only gets worse.

She lands in an apartment, shared with her aunt, divorced and with little to show for it. Simple enough, yes? But no. She is obsessed with watching Richard and tracking his now-fiance. She keeps getting in the way of their upcoming marriage.

But of course it isn't as simple as that, either.

Different chapters, different women. Different points of view. Until the end, when it all comes to a head.

Lots of twists, but I didn't find the writing particularly inspired (although I give credit to the two authors for writing as one), nor the plot twists all that exciting. It's an okay book for the airport. ( )
