Publisher's Summary

Alastair has found the perfect partner in husband Steven. Together they've built a successful life, had a beautiful child, and still behave like newlyweds long since the day he carried her over the threshold.  

But all of that changes in an instant thanks to a thoughtless deed that has lifelong repercussions. 

With secrets bubbling to the surface, the pair find their American dream life suddenly in jeopardy, and neither one of them are willing to let go at any cost.

Is there any psychological suspense underneath all of that porn?

This might have been an interesting story but I’ll never know. I could not even get past the first few chapters. I should have given up sooner and Iwish I could un-hear it!
I only listened as far as I did because the storyline in the description sounded interesting. It’s as if the publisher took a great story and ruined it by asking the author to drown it in pornographic sex.

Shout out to the female narrator, Piper Goodeve. I gave her 5 stars. The story got one star.

Bad writing, worse editing

This is a poorly written book and, seemingly, it was not subjected to any editing. The plot is far-fetched. The "action" scenes are incomprehensible. And it appears that someone used a thesaurus app to choose imprecise verbs every few paragraphs. Very disappointing!

Twisted Minds

When one woman gets the idea that another woman is partially responsible for destroying her life, this book is a how to guide of extreme revenge.

A man at a bar, a pretty woman and one too many drinks lead to one single backseat Fu**. A mistake that cost a man his wife, daughter, their comfortable lifestyle and almost his life.

But it was all intentionally set in motion for revenge by a woman who is psychologically unstable. She blamed someone loosely associated with the death of her child, and she was going to make sure everyone suffered.

And she almost got away with it all. Almost.

Keep Listening

I started this book then quit after a couple of chapters due to the infuriating conclusion being at the beginning. I was so wrong to stop. The twist keep coming. The suspense ever rising. Must listen!!!!

It was ok..

The book it’s self was a good book but the readers weren’t very believable her/his voice was monotoned the whole book and I didn’t like how she over detailed and read the text messages being sent back and forth.
