For every action, there is a reaction.
People aren’t always who they say they are. Everyone has their secrets. Some are more evil than I ever thought imaginable.
I was left broken and alone after my boyfriend was murdered in my bar.
An old acquaintance moves into Liam’s home and a spark is ignited deep inside me.
Becoming vulnerable made me weak, and I never saw it coming.
When obsession takes over, lies and deceit can be killer.
“Some days, I don’t even try to stop the bleeding. I embrace the pain. I deserve it.”
When I received the arc of this one, it came with no indication as to what it was. It had no author, title, synopsis…. all I knew was the genre. I took a chance and I’m glad I did.
This novel is a something completely different than Leighton Riley’s previous ones. I love that she took a risk on this one and gave us something slightly outside the norm.
I felt like the first third of the book moved slow and steady. We are introduced to Tinsley as she mourns the death of her boyfriend, Liam. All her future plans included Liam. How do you move forward when there’s nothing worth going in that direction? When Liam was killed, Tinsley’s heart was buried right along with him.
By the second third of the book, we start to see a shift. The story starts moving and you have to either hold on or be left behind. Tinsley’s gut tells her to move on, but not everyything is what it seems.
This one was full of suspense. Even once you think you know what may happen, there are still pieces of the bigger puzzle to put together. As the plot unfolds, trust is tested as deceit takes hold.
