Publisher's Summary

A number-one best seller in several categories with over 14,000 five-star ratings on Goodreads. 

From the number-one New York Times best-selling and award-winning author Colleen Hoover comes "A stand-alone romantic thriller that is tragic, creepy, and brilliant!" (Mel Reader Reviews

Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of best-selling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish. 

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity's notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn't expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity's recollection of the night their family was forever altered. 

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen's feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife's words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her. 

Sexy. Twisted. Consuming. 

Due to graphic scenes and mature content, this book is recommended for listeners 18+.

4 Stars but I wish It wasn't 6 months late

I need to start by saying that authors who release audiobooks 6 months after the eBook are doing a huge disservice to the audiobook fans. With 6 months of waiting and all the hype about how crazy this book was I had VERY high expectation and I'll be honest I was left underwhelmed. If I had listened when it released and hadn't had 6 months of hype, I know I would have LOVED this book. I truly hope since this author is going completely Indie now that she will do some research on how all the other hundreds of Indie Author do simultaneous releases so us Audiobook people aren't missing out on the excitement and twists that she loves to give us in her amazing work.

Now Verity.... I really enjoyed the writing style of this story. Loved that it was dual POV so we got both "sides" of the story and I loved the characters, Colleen did an amazing job at making me hate Verity. I've listened to everything written by Coho and I love that she is dipping into other Genres. Throughout this entire book I was waiting for the twist, I knew what I thought and I was 1/2 right but the explanation was the surprise for me.

The narration was good. Vanessa Johansson is new to me and at first I wasn't sure out her voice but she was perfect for Lowen. Amy Landon isn't a favorite of mine normally but I think it's more about casting then her work and she was cast perfectly as Verity!

Almost a 5 Star book, but sadly not

This is a hard one to rate. I loved the whole book up, and didn’t want to stop listening. If you would have asked me to rate it anytime before the last hour I would have given it 5 ⭐️. However, I was very unsatisfied with the ending. Like really? It could have been great, instead it was like, huh? Ok. I call bs but ok. And I’m sure that was the authors intention, but I didn’t care for that approach. When the story has you drawn in from the beginning you expect to be wowed by the ending. Instead it got a shrug. I guess if you don’t normally listen to suspense you’ll probably be satisfied with it, but being that I like dark and suspenseful I was left wanting. I would still recommend the book however as I said it did keep my attention which is hard. Just don’t get your hopes too high for some huge BELIEVABLE plot twist. I liked the first narrator. I don’t care for the narrator of Verity, but she was a lot less annoying in this one than some of her others. She was tolerable.

I couldn't stop listening

Just when I thought I had it all figured out, there's a twist. The story keeps listeners engaged.

This was absolutely impossible to press pause on. It drew me in right from the first minute until the last second. This is my first book by this author, but I am definitely looking into more soon.

WHAT. THE. CRAP.

WTF is the only thing that keeps repeating on loop having just finished this mindbending thriller. Like, I thought I knew CoHo, but... what did I actually just read?

Oh yeah, the narration was perfect. But the words... yeah, still reeling. I'm terrified of your brain lady.

If any other readers are afraid to read this book like I was.. you should be, but not for the reasons you think. This story is going to grip your brain so tight and twist any preconceived notions you ever had about Colleen Hoover being normal. I mean, she just completely obliterated my brain... but in the best way possible. Thanks for making me feel as batcrap crazy as you apparently are. I mean brilliant. CoHo, you so brilliant, not crazy. Yeah, that's what I meant.

Disappointed After All Of The Hype

Verity is a very simple love story with a psychological thriller twist. It's a fast, easy read. It's predictable and it's a little bit different, but it's not nearly the book to knock anyone's socks off. If you enjoy romance with a twist or darkness, you may enjoy it. I didn't think it was 'all that.' And, at first I was irritated about the long wait for it on Audible.. But I wasn't really missing anything.

Just meh.

What The Ever Loving ...... F

This sums up what I am feeling right about now. I mean how can I even express my thoughts at this moment.
I don’t know if I liked it, loved it, or hated it. Seriously I am so so many emotions right now.
I am afraid to let myself think too hard about this book for fear I might go a little crazy.

How can I have such strong emotions to a work of FICTION and yes I had to keep telling myself this was FICTION NOT real PAM NOT Real!! Haha.

My good friend got some pretty interesting voice messages and even a vid of me because I couldn’t contain myself I had to share what I was feeling with someone!!!!

Nothing like any of Colleen’s other books for sure, so remember that when going in. I KNEW this going in and still, I was shocked. Her ability to make me viscerally hate a character, a true gift with the words is what she has.

I will be over here in shock and trying to justify it to myself.

I enjoyed the heck out the narrators I think they did a fabulous job.

Not for me

I don't read psychological thrillers very often but I was intrigued by the set up of this novel. The narrators were good and the story is fast paced and absorbing. The book has an interesting structure (book within a book) and some of the twists were interesting but the plot was too predictable. I also found the characters shallow and unlikeable. Their actions were not believeable in the least.

Don't believe the hype.

Not sure how this received so many 5 star reviews. I found the plot completely implausible and the characters deeply unlikeable. I had figured out the twists well ahead of their reveals. I persevered through this book on the strength of the reviews but wish I hadn't. I found the mills and boon sex scenes far too frequent and unnecessary also. Returned for a refund.

Loved it!

I think is was my favourite of all Colleen’s books. It was darker and more suspenseful, but I loved that the story kept taking unexpected turns. I listened to the whole thing in about 3 days, and it stayed with me long after I finished. The performance was great too!
