Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This book has all the best parts of romance and betrayal. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.” Jay Crownover, New York Times bestselling author
“A powerful story of friendship, trauma, coping, and betrayal. The characters jump off the page into real life and will have…[listeners] gasping and feeling every emotion that they go through. Another amazing book to add to Murphy’s already stellar library.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“An intriguing concept: Ethan manipulates vulnerable, clueless Katherine into falling in love with him by exploiting their inescapable childhood bond. Murphy imbues these characters with genuineness and plausibility.” Publishers Weekly
“By having Ethan and Katie take turns narrating alternate chapters set in the past and the present, Murphy has written a compelling and emotional love story of two severely broken people, each of whom can be healed only by the other. This is the first book in a two-part series, and…[listeners] should be warned that it does have a cliffhanger ending.” Booklist
“A powerful story that left me raw yet hopeful.” K. A. Tucker, USA Today bestselling author

Standard Romance with a Twist

When I first started this book, I hoped for a truly original and twisted romance. No such luck. The circumstances that bring them together are original, but that’s where the originality stops. This book is just one long build up to a sex scene, just like most romances. The plot is super predictable, so much so that I successfully predicted the ending about one-third of the way through the book. I also don’t find the characters’ behaviors intriguing or realistic. I’d say I’m looking forward to seeing how this story resolves in the second book, but that would be an untrue statement. I can already predict how that concluding part of the story plays out. The duet of narrators is the best part about this book.
