An impossible-to-put-down domestic thriller about secrets and revenge, told from the perspectives of a husband and wife who are the most perfect, and the most dangerous, match for each other
Rebecca didn’t know love was possible until she met Paul, a successful, charismatic, married man with a past as dark as her own. Their pain drew them together with an irresistible magnetism; they sensed that they were each other’s ideal (and perhaps only) match.
But twenty years later, Paul and Rebecca are drowning as the damage and secrets that ignited their love begin to consume their marriage. Paul is cheating on Rebecca, and his affair gets messy fast. His mistress is stalking them with growing audacity when Rebecca discovers Paul’s elaborate plan to build a new life without her. And though Rebecca is spiraling into an opiate addiction, it doesn’t stop her from coming up with a devious plot of her own, and this one could end absolutely everything.
What follows is an unpredictable and stylish game of cat and mouse—a shocking tale of unfaithfulness and unreliability that will keep you racing until the final twist and make you wonder how well you really know your spouse.

Advance Galley Reviews

I've read a lot of thrillers, and here's the thing-you can't just have an interesting twist. The character development in this book is abysmal. Paul, the husband, is so one-dimensional. Rebecca is slightly better but not much. Then, you get to the twist, and I wasn't really impressed. Honestly, it's a bit unbelievable to me. I HATED the ending (though some people will really love it, I'm sure). The one thing I will say is it was a fast read. There are just so many better thrillers out there. I'd pass on this one.

I have been reading a lot of Advanced Readers Copy’s lately and this is my favorite so far. In this day in age I feel like infidelity happens so often and it makes me sick but there was something that was sweet about this. A relief of sorts. My big issue is Sheila and Sasha. Couldn’t have picked two names that were a little different. It took me a little bit to figure out they were two people and not me just misreading it. I am a fan of jumping into different characters POVs because I want to see what’s going on from someone else’s perspective. Loved this book and I can’t wait for my friends to read it when it comes out.

This was not a book for me. I’m not really into books where the main characters constantly whine about their lives. All the back and forth between before and after gets tiresome.

I thought that this book was well written and the characters were well developed. I was not sure what was going on at first, however was eventually able to grasp what was going on and understand where the story was going. I liked the strong emotion throughout and would like to read more from this author. I will be recommending this book to others

As I’m writing this review I’m still in shock. This is definitely a page turner and will keep you anxious to find out what’s next. Rebecca and her husband Paul’s life as well as the events of cheating, drugs, murder and others getting revenge make E.G. Scott a genius in the way they wrote this. It’s a must read!!!!
