Publisher's Summary

A darkly gripping domestic drama about secrets and lies. 

When you have everything, you have everything to lose.... 

Alexandra Inglis is a respected family doctor, trusted by her patients to keep their most intimate secrets. And if sometimes the boundaries between duty and desire blur...well, she's only human. But when Alex oversteps a line with Jonathan, one of her patients, she knows she's gone too far. 

Jonathan is obsessive, and to get what he wants he will tear Alex's world apart - threatening not only her career but her marriage and family, too. Soon Alex finds she's capable of doing almost anything to keep hold of her perfect life as it begins to spin dangerously out of her control....

Kept me guessing!!

The fact that I didn't figure it out (or at least I wasn't ever 100% sure) and that the story and the narrator held my attention is the highest compliment I can give a book in this genre. Excellent... and I highly recommend this listen!

No point to this book

This story was ridiculous. The only reason I kept listening is because I was waiting for some sort of bombshell... nope, it never came. Don’t waste your time.

Did not expect the ending!

This book is one of the best I’ve read lately. Lovely narrator. Lots of twists. Kept me guessing. I usually am able to predict the ending, but didn’t with this one. Sort of wish it had ended differently though.

Really Good

It's a bit of a slow start but soon starts rolling along. I liked how the first part of the book is her story then it switches to his. A few chapters are dedicated to some of the other characters perspectives. Kept me guessing till the end and I like that!

Great drama with a wonderful performance.

This was a good story well-written and nicely performed. The twist at the end was adequately hidden until the very end. The narrator was excellent.

5 stars isn't enough

One of the best books I have ever read. Not surprising to read that the author was a psychologically major. Her insights into all of her character's behavior was dead on. Many twists but that's quite prevalent in the suspense genre. What made this book stand out is that none of the twists were contrived. All made sense. No tension building that could easily be solved with a simple admission by a character. Only complaint is that -- as good an ending as it was -- it had an ending at all. I will miss waking up to this book.

Good gentle thriller

The story begins with our main protagonist, Alexandra, waking up in a hotel room with a bad hangover trying to figure out how she came to be there, and who is the man lying next to her. We soon learn that Alexandra is a medical doctor, married to Rob. She is in Ibiza as part of a girls' boozy weekend. The man next to her, Jonathan, is quite young, attractive, and one of Alex's patients from back home. Alex's career could now be at risk if this mistake became public knowledge.
The story before and after that event is told from several perspectives, the perspectives of course differ significantly, as we the audience are gripped wanting to know what is really going on, and who is the "bad guy" in all of this. We get lots of believable detail about family and professional relationships. For the most part of the book this is all pleasant and engaging listening, but fairly pedestrian as a story. All the action, the twists and turns come in the final hour, so don't give up on this book. The ending is worth the wait.
Like an early Lucy Dawson book that I listened to, Everything You Told Me, this is a relatively easy listen, doesn't take too much concentration for a thriller, and has good ending which wraps everything up without anything being left hanging. It's the kind of book I like anyway and I'll be listening to more by the same author.
Rachel Atkins, the narrator, did an excellent job. Her male voices especially, came across as very plausible.

Overrated, uninteresting story

I'm very surprised that this book gets so many high star reviews. For me it was a waste of time and I regret since I bought it the waste of my monthly credit.
I searched for a thriller and this is NOT, it is not gripping story either.
Middle age mother of two children and a reputable GP on top of it goes on a drinking weekend to Ibiza! Where she sleeps with 17 years old boy. I am not prude but REALLY? I didn't care since the beginning about what would happened and really don't understand why would someone chose to wrote a story about this.
The whole book is about her 'mistake', cheating husband, twisted teenager and his twisted parents.
There is not a single character I cared about. Half way through the book I decided not to continue because I really wasn't interested what would happened.
I didn't care whether she goes to jail or when would 'the twist' finally happen. The whole story and everybody in it was twisted.

It's about justifying how much she was 'hammered' in Ibiza, her 'poor' family, her husband 'justifying his cheating', and her constant repeating 'I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG,' lots of F... words and unappealing characters.

The narration was good before t the story very poor.

Couldn't put it down

Although the story line was pretty straight forward you are kept guessing till the very last moment.The narrator was excellent and had she not been maybe I wouldn't have rated it so highly.

Captivating though odd ending

I was really hooked on this one from the get go and loved listening to the different sides of the story. Narrator did I great job at being the different characters. The ending didn’t quite work for me but overall I really liked the book.
