Your review sounds almost as captivating as the description of the book. A thriller/romance book definitely sounds intriguing.
I cannot change the past because it is gone and I cannot tell what tomorrow will be like as it has not happened. What I can do is live today as life is happening now.

This book is nice, especially that it capturing someone's attention in the way events were been unfolded, and I love the style of the author

I'm torn between it being a romantic book and being a CTMH book...... Either way, I'm hooked. This is definitely a book I would enjoy. It's funny how we sometimes see the warning signs but choose to ignore them. We can be so sure that we can fix someone when perhaps they don't need fixing. Awesome review 👍

I like everything except for the fact it seems like they looked up similar meaning words. Then found the biggest word and put that in the place of their original word. I would definetly love to read more !

An author that can hold your attention for 2 whole days until you finish the story is an author that I will have to check out. I admire those that can grip the reader's attention and hold it, suspended almost, as they read every word written.

It seemed to me upon reading your review, that the character Julie seemed almost obsessed with Alex. There are people that tend to only want those that are unobtainable or difficult to commit to relationships. They enjoy the chase but are rarely satisfied when they 'catch' them. Then there are those that are drawn to the danger aspect these individuals exude.

Great review, think I will add this to my list to read. Thanks :)

I'm not one for romance stories mostly but I can definitely see how this book can influence people to read more romance-themed novels! Overall, great review!

Just reading your review sent shivers down my spine. Something about a dark romance sounds both compelling and offputting. Maybe the author's beautiful language can lull me into a comfortable place before things get sinister. I'll have to read this when I'm feeling brave. Great review!

The book seems interesting, but the fact that it ends abruptly and has graphic violence is refraining me from reading it, but the review is real good.

I don't like romance books. In this book the twist in romance makes me curious to read it!

I love it when a book captures you and doesn’t let go. Man, just reading your summary, I could see red flags for their relationship all over the place, and I think you captured it when you said, “It was like a train wreck that I couldn't peel my eyes away from.” I can completely imagine that being the case for this. You have me very curious about his secret, but it’s too bad that it ended so abruptly. Fantastic review!

This book seems to have a curious plot, with some aspects of mystery and romance. But it's really sad when the story doesn't end fulfilling our expectations. However, I'm pretty interested in reading it since it had such a good rating. Thanks for the great review!

This book appeals to my eyes. It seems very mysterious but has a mind confusing plot that grabbed my attention. This sounds like a love story thats not really a love story! And I want to know more.
