Publisher's Summary

She’s broken. She’s vulnerable. She’s just what Marco was looking for.

Stella Wiseman was a child TV star, but there’s nothing glamorous about her life now. Alone in her thirties, she’s lost her parents and her friends and she’s stuck in a dead-end job. But just as she hits rock bottom she meets Marco, a charismatic older man who offers to get her back on her feet. He seems too good to be true. 

Is he? 

She appreciates the money he lavishes on her. And the pills. But are the pills just helping her sleep, or helping her avoid her problems?

With Stella’s life still in freefall, Marco whisks her away to a secluded cottage where she is isolated from everyone except him. But the closer he pulls her, the worse she gets. He tells her it’s all in her head, and she just needs time away from the world.

No longer sure what’s real and what’s not, Stella begins to question whether she was wrong to trust Marco. Was she wrong to trust herself? Is the one person she thought was fighting for her survival actually her biggest threat?

Quite boring!

Stretching out the story line way too long for about 95% then it finally get a little exciting towards the end! Thought about stopping after a few chapters but kept wondering if it would pick up, wish I had!

Slow to build but great ending!

This book was interesting enough to keep me going through the slow build, probably because the narrator was so good. I thought she did a great job of male and female voices, better than most (for the male voices). I will look for other books by this author. The ending did explain things going on in the book very well and tied it all together. Overall I was not “riveted” but the book was good.

it's ok but...

I like most of the book and the story is interesting. We have the former child star meeting a man and they start a relationship. Many plot holes for me here, unless I just don't understand how these pills are supposed to work in real life. This got out of control in my opinion and makes no sense. Spoilers
This dummy just moved to a cabin in a small town? All by herself? Why? She has a cell phone, but can't call her "former friends"? What's up with all the biting? Is Marco stalking her when he's supposedly unreachable by phone? Narrator was great though.
