This is probably going to be a terrible review. I can’t tell you much without giving away the whole thing. And believe me…..you want to read this till the very end without any spoilers. The Overview pretty much nails it. You assume….but don’t assume.
Let me start with Vanessa. She is a completely flawed woman. She starts out whiny, weak, mousy, and just a little pitiful. I was not sure I liked her at all. She was really broken. But, before it is all over, SHE ROARS! And she roars BIG!
Then there is Richard. He is right out of GQ. He is handsome, rich and a hedge fund manager. He is a dream come true, or is he?
Enter Emma. She is Richard’s new assistant. She is young, pretty, and smart. See, you have already started to make assumptions…STOP IT!
This is a complete mind game. The story is confusing in places due to the genius of the authors. It starts mild. Has multiple twists and turns. You think you know, you don’t know, you think you know again….a complete mind game!
I received this novel from St. Martin’s Press for a honest review.
