Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.
Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of the night their family was forever altered.
Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.
Due to graphic scenes and mature content, this book is recommended for readers 18+.
EXCUSE ME WHILE I TRY TO RESTORE MY BREATHING TO A NORMAL STATE…
This book will grab a hold of your soul from page one! The story starts out with a heart racing scene between two people on the streets of NYC whose lives come crashing together and forever altered. Little did Lowen and Jefferey know that they were on the way to the same meeting that fateful morning. What happens on the following pages will have you literally gasping for air! Like “hand over mouth, I don’t want to scream out loud and wake everyone around me” kind of gasping!
It isn’t the general plot idea that will have you feeling like your eyes will burn holes through the pages as you read. Generally, the storyline was not “omg I’ve never read a story like it”. (Struggling author gets big chance at a new beginning… yadda yadda)
HOWEVER…it’s the way Colleen Hoover weaves together the believable yet unbelievable events that tie the characters together along with the “in your face” way she unravels the plot will have you breathless at every turn of the page.
I started this book at 10pm and read until I couldn’t pry my eyes open any longer (about 3am). I was about 65% done when I woke the next morning and devoured the rest in a few hours! One of the fastest books I’ve ever read. I DID NOT WANT TO PUT IT DOWN!
Here’s what you may be thinking as you race through this book…
“Omg that’s bat shit crazy”
“WHAT. THE. HELL. JUST. HAPPENED.”
“She did what”??????
“Are you kidding me right now”!
“Wait, I have to reread that part”!
“Ummm… I have no words”
“Thank God no one can hear me reading this out loud”!
Anyone else read and experience these thoughts?????
So, if you haven’t read this book, I HIGHLY recommend you get it and start reading it. You will dovour its unbelievable, steamy, thrilling, and unpredictable contents in a matter of hours! MAJOR BOOK HANGOVER!
