I literally had to force myself to put this down. What a mind blowing adventure. Colleen was able to keep my mind constantly moving. I often find gaps in stories, places that really seem to just be useless. But, this book didn’t have a single page that left you wishing you new which page to skip ahead to.

- Worst ever1 star


- Wow5 star

Wow . That’s all I can say. I read this entire book cover to cover in 5 hours. I couldn’t put it down. I felt everything. The talent Colleen has is truly amazing. I’ve loved every book of hers I’ve read, for sure, but this one. Again, wow. A must read!!!!!

- Amazing5 star

Finished it in 2 days, couldn’t put it down. Beautifully written and very descriptive.

- Wow.2 star


- Speechless5 star


- Amazing!!5 star

I absolutely LOVED this book!! I have never read a book so quickly. There were so many emotions and so many twists that kept me reading. This book is a work of art and will be in my favorites🤍

- Excellent. Best plot twist I’ve seen in a while.4 star

This was a great weekend read. Perfect blend of suspense, sex, romance, and thrill. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, it ended with a twist. I still don’t know what the “truth” is in this plot, but glad Hoover leaves it up to us to decide what to believe.

- Ending?4 star

I read this book fervently, wanted to read every second of my free time. I finished it in 2 days. The book had so many surprises and did actually leave me gasping . I didn’t think the ending matched the excitement of the book as a whole, though.

- Definitely recommend5 star

I actually really loved this book. It kept me on my toes, is a page turn and is easy to quickly get through. What I’ve loved the most is that after finishing the book I’m still thinking about it and the ending days later! Fun and entertaining read.

- A must read!!!!5 star

This book is SO good. I loved all of the suspense and turns it took.

- Oh my god5 star

Literally had me saying out loud …”omg what?, no way, hold on are you serious ….” So many times. Must read.

- Verity3 star

I’ve seen so many mixed reviews that I wanted to read it to see where I landed on this book. I give the writer major props. I thought how she wrote a story in a story was so crafty. This book started out really strong and I was super drawn in. Lowen and Jeremy’s relationship didn’t quite make sense to me. There was never a point where I felt real chemistry between them for that to happen. Verity (the character) was so complex and I loved that you could never quite figure her out. Still can’t. The end had a point where you think it’s going to end great, but then the ending was really kind of abrupt and a little bit of a letdown wanting just a little more. Overall, glad I read it! Colleen’s first attempt at a thriller was well done.

- Suspenseful yet sexy.. yet scary.4 star

I believe that Coho knew exactly how to write this book to leave us gasping. This book actually made me gasp many times and while reading it by myself in the room I got chills. I think that this is a very special piece she usually writes romance but I like how she still fit some sexy/romantic lines. The book is worth reading but as always don’t expect Coho to fulfill your dream ending.

- Excellent read!5 star

I looked forward to reading this book because of the reviews. I have to say, this book did not disappoint! It was hard to put down especially three quarters the way through.

- AMAZING5 star

An amazing read. Gave me the chills for sure, but not “scary” really. 10/10

- Stupid. Period2 star

How can such a good writer create such a stupid story line. Then again, maybe Lifetime TV will pick it up.

- All plot.3 star

The plot has many twists and turns and would be thrilling if the prose didn’t leave something to be desired. But that’s what I get for reading commercial fiction. Every good workshop comes with pros and cons, no? The characters were strong. The pacing of the plot was fluid. I would like to read the series Verity has written. That seemed very intriguing.

- Fantastic5 star

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book so fast. Absolutely consuming.

- Eerily Soectacular5 star

This is the first book I have read of Colleen Hoover’s collection and all I can say is WOW!!! I couldn’t put it down. I read it in almost a day. It had me gripping the edge of my seat and what an ending!!! Please keep these thrillers coming loved it!!!

- I wanted to love it more than I did.3 star

I wanted to love it, but the sex scenes were a bit much for me. Being a thriller, those pages just felt dark and icky. It gives me Gone Girl vibes. Did I feel compelled to finish it? Yes. But did I enjoy the read? Not as much as I’d hoped.

- INCREDIBLE!!5 star

Couldn’t put it down!

- Wonderful thriller5 star

Loved this book

- …WOW!5 star

- Intense..5 star

Couldn’t stop reading, I think I’ve had my stomach in a knot majority of this book. Glad it’s over but wish there was more!!!

- Worth a read4 star

It got very interesting in the middle and I could not put the book down. Although I did not see that ending coming, I do prefer endings that are more twisted than this one. But it is worth a read for sure.

- Total Mind-Blowing Read!5 star

I couldn’t put this book down. The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat all the way to the last page! Read it, because you will love it!

- Stunning!5 star

- phenomenal❤️‍🔥5 star

Absolutely gut-wrenching & well-written. Experienced several emotions throughout this read, and I could not put it down. CoHo fan now for sure.

- Unbelievably messed up!5 star

I would have stopped reading this for all of the extra sexual components, but I really couldn’t put it down. I like my psychological thrillers straight up, and this one is not. However, if you you can get past the erotica, you will be pleased with the ending. Not a prude, or anything, but it’s got a lot of sex going on. If you like those books, you’ll love this. I just have to say that I like my psychological thrillers to be just that. This felt like porn. Again, however, it was a really great read at the core. And so I’ll give it a five for that core. I don’t regret reading it. Take from that what you will.


Hands down the best book I have ever read. I started it and did not put it down once. From the first page to the last….phenomenal.

Going by the reviews i thought this book was going to be amazing. It has real potential. I feel like this could have been a suspenseful thriller but fell short trying to be a sexy thriller. The writing is really good which makes it more disappointing.

ab1557 - Wowzers!5 star

This book was crazy good! I stayed up all night reading it, furiously sending my friend who recommended it to me texts as more and more twists came. This was a creepy, steamy, and wild ride. I loved this book from start to finish, and think it would make a blockbuster horror/thriller movie. I hope Colleen Hoover writes more like this soon!

Ashk397 - Too predictable2 star

TJDuder - Terrible1 star

Plot holes, lazy ending, flow makes no sense and the structure is just horrible. It feels as though it’s written by a horny 16 year old, or like the words were vomited out of Hoover on adderall in one sitting. And the saddest part is that it has potential. Is this what writing has come to? Who’s her editor? Lol
