I find B.A. Paris books somewhat formulaic. Not this one - we knew who the bad guy was for most of the book and that created the suspension. This was an excellent read.

I loved this book!! It was different and uncomfortable. We have all been in love and have given up things blindly. This is falling in love gone wrong. The British language added to the intrigue.

The first part of this book made me feel so frustrated and uncomfortable, both about the way Jack treats Grace as well as about the actions of Grace herself, which are something like the bad-marriage equivalent of going down to the basement alone with no flashlight in a horror movie. I didn't want to keep reading but I still felt compelled to do so, so I could see how the story ended.

This is another book about a man controlling and abusing a woman. Absolute trash. Don't waste your time

I finished this book quickly because it pained me to hear a story so wrapped in stupidity.

This book was an intense page turner. It was easy to get into and hard to put it down (I read it in 2 days). The end was a bit anticlimactic, but overall a good book.
