Josie Buhrman has spent the last 10 years trying to escape her family's reputation, and with good reason. After her father's murder 13 years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult, and her twin sister, Lanie, once Josie's closest friend and confidante, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner, Caleb, and that's where she intends to stay. The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past - starting with her last name.

The story would have been good but I didn’t care about the characters telling the story. They were shallow. So that is bad writing.
I could have maybe made it through the last half of the book, to find out who done it!!! But the narrators voice was grating on my nerves so I had to stop in the middle. I have no idea why this is on any good reads list!

This was a good thought for an erotic story. The book was ruined by the narrator. She made it ridiculous

This narrator is so hard to listen to.. I feel like she is reading an ingredient label. I am returning the book. I can’t make it.

What a waste of money. Predictable from the beginning. Rediculous ending. The characters we far from interesting. The plot was... rediculous
