TW: Child abuse and Sexual abuse

There are a lot of mixed reviews for this one, but I personally really enjoyed this book! It’s a great quick, fun, heart-pounding, and jaw-dropping psychological thriller.

This book really was captivating and intriguing from the start, couple that with short chapters and different POVs, and you have a winning combination! I was able to fly through this book. I’ve never read a Shanora Williams book, but I understand now how people mentioned that this author takes psychological thrillers to the next level and how they are never disappointed. I found the author did an excellent job of building suspense in every chapter.

This novel takes you on a roller coaster ride that leaves you incredibly curious about what will happen next while also making you feel nervous and perplexed. Once you start reading this book, you might not be able to put this book down. I wholeheartedly urge everyone to read this book but prepare yourself for the unpredictable including a mind-blowing ending.

Thank you to Kensington Books, Dafina for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


Adira Smith-Cortez knows how to turn around a troubled past. Now she’s a self-made multi-millionaire who takes exquisite care of herself and her only true love: her husband, Gabriel. Adira has it all—except the answer to one tormenting question: why is attentive, affectionate Gabriel cheating on her—with not just one, but two women. There’s sexy Jocelyn, a club owner. And then there’s Julianna, a celebrity makeup artist he’s even crazier about. In a tricky twist, vengeful Jocelyn offers Adira the perfect plan to get her straying spouse back . . .

It sounds simple: Adira will befriend Julianna through a fake identity, play on her and Gabriel’s vulnerabilities and cause them to split up permanently. Determined to reclaim her happiness, Adira won’t—can’t—stop to think what could possibly go wrong . . .

Until too many of Gabriel’s lies start adding up to a disquieting truth. Until Julianna discovers who Adira really is—and Jocelyn pushes Adira to ever-more-unthinkable extremes. With her world collapsing and shattering memories tearing her apart, how far will Adira’s obsession take her—and how much of herself is she willing to lose in the process . . .
