Wasn’t expecting to love this much

The twists and turns prevented me from putting this book down

Best book yet!!!!

This is my fourth book by Colleen and I loved it! I usually read very slow but I could not put it down! I’m still not sure what happened in the end!!!!! Would I recommend it-you bet


This book was the best darn book Ive read in quite some time. My mind was blown away at the creativity colleen put in this. I loved the chilling twists and creepy undertones of the story. Ive not been one to enjoy horror books, but this might have actually gotten me into horror novels.


Great book. I was very excited to read this one. Has some SMUT so do not order if you do not like that.

read this in one day

This was my first Colleen Hoover book, I'm not one for romance novels, which I gathered from reviews of her other books. If this is her first attempt at blending suspense/thriller with romance... WELL DONE, GIRL!!! I could not put this book down. I will not give anything away as to my thoughts about the story or my thoughts about its ending, I will just say that it is well worth the read and I loved it. Ms. Hoover, please write more like this!

Hooked but not Shocked

Verity had me hooked at chapter 1. Very good easy read. Love the name Verity!!!! I read the edition with the exclusive chapter. I was told it makes a HUGE difference. I did not get the "Shock Factor", but it still had me hooked to the point I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! I look forward to reading more Colleen Hoover books.

Unexpectedly Addicting

I absolutely enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. It was hard to put down at times. I’m already looking at more books from this Author because the writing style is such a masterpiece.

Save yourself

Don't. Just don't do it to yourself. If you want a good domestic thriller just read Behind Closes Doors by B.A. Paris. Save your coins. PLEASE

Couldn’t put it down

I read this book in one day. I literally could not put it down. Believe the hype, it’s so good!

Excellent Book

Fast paced for fast reading

Loved it.

I’m a slow reader but read this in two days while at work. Loved it!

Disturbingly Good

I brought this book on me on vacation and started reading at the airport waiting to board - I had 20 pages left when I got off the plane and finished at the pool by the hotel. In that 12 hour day 7 different people, including the flight attendant mentioned how good this book was. They were right! It has some potential triggers for some folks which is why I have it a 4, but over all it was twisted in the right ways and well written.

Love love love

I did not see that ending coming. It keeps you on your toes, for sure. So glad I picked it up!

Very entertaining! An easy read

This was a great book! I devoured it in 2 days. It'll definitely keep you hooked and make you feel something. However, it's written at an 8th grade level and is a very easy read.

Great read!

Very good read. Hard to put down.

Making Thriller Romance my new obsession

Wow! There were times I was reading chapters in bed that made me get up and lock my bedroom door! Never had a book do that. I see you, Colleen Hoover! Not overly spicy, either. Very realistic but kept me flipping pages!

Great book

The suspense and the uncertainty is amazing


Kept me on my toes and read in one day

This might be one of my favorite books I’ve ever read

Hooks you from the first page, incredible writing, nail-biting, can’t-put-down. I love this book so much, the writing style is one of my favorite, going back and forth from past to present. Intense, incredible, amazing. Hoover should definitely write more thrillers. She does a wonderful job. I could picture every scene in my mind so clearly.

Very hyped book

I knew from the start where this book was going, and other than the twist at the end it was pretty much as I expected.


It was great to read this book! Took me a day to read it ..... I was not expecting the twist and turns!

finished in two days - had me so hooked

i loved the twist at the end! you realize how hard it is to trust anyone in this story.

Loved this book

I'd recommend this book to book clubs. It would generate some interesting conversations and reviews.

Could NOT put it down!

This book was so good. I started reading it and I could not put it down. There is a bonus chapter the author wrote late and Colleen Hoover herself posted it online. If you love romance, mystery and a touch of thriller this is a book for you!

Great book!

This is the first book I have read by Colleen Hoover and I really enjoyed it. I now have a new favorite author and will have to read all of her other books.

Finished in less then a day

I couldn’t put it down

Verity! I could not put this book down. I read itvin 48 hrs and was sad it was over! The ending was

Tje characters are easy to follow!

Page Turner!

Keep me up all night until I finish it. Not going to say much other then it is a one of kind story. A must read!

It was okay, until it wasn’t.

You can tell a romance author wrote the book, as those parts get more detail than anything else. Worth the read but 4 stars for the rushed ending.


first, you either like colleen’s way of writing or you don’t and for me? hard pass. i heard all the praise! i watched the recommendation, the reviews, booktok, all of it & look, i caved. i bought this because i’m more into “mystery/murder/suspect,” i read it, finished it, and then sat with it. was it a good plot? sure, i mean it was a little silly in some areas did i expect the ending? honestly, no. i’m pretty good at guessing how suspenseful books end but this made me reread the ending bc; “what? she did what? does that mean— oh my god.” that was very much my reaction. would i read it again? maybe. it was simple, easy to read, easy to follow. it’s not a terrible book, im just not into colleen but i won’t discredit this book, solid 8/10

Please don't fall for the tiktok hype.

CW/TW cheating, murder, fake illness This book is simply not good. The book does not have any good character development and the characters are all unlikable. The story is completely unrealistic and if you know anything about the medical field is absolutely incorrect (no spoilers but if you read it you know). The book is written to assume the reader is gullible and will just go along with any "plot twist" if it stirs up drama. This book is simply not good and the epilogue just made it even less enjoyable. This has been the second Colleen Hoover book I have read and I only stuck through it because of how many people love it. Absolutely not worth the read.

my first, but not last, colleen hoover read

i loved her writing and the story so much that i read it in 8 hours haha definitely stoked to check her other books!

Grabs you immediately and doesn't let you go! Fantastic read!

A real page turner, for sure. Twists and turns around every corner. Exhilarating read for a mature adult! Loved this book! Run, go get this now!

The suspense is riveting

Holy cow. From beginning to end I was obsessed with this book. It has a rough storyline, hard to read as a parent. BUT I could not put it down. So good.

Should have a warning.

The book was VERY good. Colleen is a very talented author. The book kept me soooooo hooked. Throughout the entire thing. However, there are some sensitive topics and graphic scenes that some people should be aware of.

Minority Opinion Perhaps

The story was interesting and the character development was alright. I thought the intense twist of an ending left some to be desired. It felt rushed and wrapped up overall. I know this story has a lot of hype online and it just didn't live up to it for me.

Couldn't put it down!

Literally read in one day! I couldn't stop reading it! Definitely keeps you on edge!

Has everything you want in a mystery novel- love it!

Absolutely LOVE this book, it’s a wild ride from page one and it sucked me in. It’s dark, gritty, and by the end your head will be spinning - I highly recommend it

Will read again

Kept me on my toes! Loved every second of reading it!

Wow just wow!!

This was my first book by this author and I’m officially hooked!! I wasn’t expecting it to be so dark tbh! But I loved it! And now I’m reading ugly love!

So Good!

I just got this book in, and is the first book by Colleen Hoover I have read, and I did not put it down! I read the entire thing in one sitting, It was just so captivationg and intriguing. I am putting more books by this great author in my cart now! :)

You’ll have a book hangover after this one

It has been soo long since a book sucked me in from page one and KEPT me the entire book. Every single page. When I wasn’t reading I was wishing I was. This is the best book I’ve read in a decade! It’s mysterious, trippy, creepy, suspenseful, allll the things. I can’t say enough about this book. Gonna have a book hangover for a while I’m afraid. I passed this on to 5 coworkers and they all devoured it too! If you like this genre, don’t hesitate, do yourself a favor and get to reading.

Best book I’ve read in a while.

Read in 2 days! Super good & surprising twists!

Couldn’t put it down!

Mad at myself that I waited this long to start reading her books. Such a great read with good twists

A Book To Devour!

Truly an original piece of work that you can not put down! Great storyline, incredibly suspenseful, and leaves you questioning who the characters truly are. I wish I could read it for the first time again!

Crazy Good Read!!

This is the first book by Colleen Hoover that I have read, it will not be the last. Very original story line with a twist that I did not see coming. I found this book very hard to put down.

Absolutely amazing!

This book is incredible. I was left speechless. I don't know who the real villian is. I usually don't read books like this but I have to say I will now read anything this women puts out. I have never been on the edge of my seat and wanted to stay up until 5am to finish a book before. The characters or so complex . The plot twist wow. If you love dark thriller romance please buy this book it will not let you down!

Insane but fantastic

This book is equal parts disturbing and amazing.

Sucks you right in.

The only thing I didn’t like about this book was that it ended. I borrowed it from a friend and liked it so much had to buy one for myself.

Twist and turns. Disturbing thriller thy will have you wondering what’s next.

Really good thriller. Lots of good twists that left me clinging to the pages wondering what could possibly come next. Fast paced and interesting. I burned thorough it in one sitting.

Do yourself a favor and read this book

Twisty thriller, I read this book in less than a day, I couldn’t put it down!

Great book!

This book had me hooked from the very beginning! Had me feeling all sorts of emotions- anger, disgust, surprise, suspense! I was a little disappointed in the ending as I was hoping it would be more dramatic. I would definitely recommend!

Amazing read!!

Amazing book! I completed it in less than 24 hrs, couldn’t put it down! I’ve never closed a book & had so many mixed emotions (frustrated, confused, hurt, mad, etc.). Absolutely a head spinner!!

Mind blowing

Such a great book. Heartbreaking & mind blowing all in one. Read in 2 days could not put it down!


What a great read! Took me a day and I was done. I couldn’t put it down. Definitely a favorite!!
