I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I became engrossed with this story pretty much from the beginning. I was not a huge fan of Erin and Mark as a couple, I liked Erin way more than Mark but at times I wanted to shake some sense into her as she made blunder after blunder. I am being very vague because it is not easy to review without giving away anything. Suffice it to say, this story is an edge of your seat thrill ride. I could not put this book down. There were so many twists and turns and as I mentioned my issue with Erin was that she was a bit naive at times,.
If you like thriller with a huge twist and great plot this is for you.
