Author: Colleen Hoover
This is my 109th read for the year
I am on an audiobook kick right now. So much running around in the car. And present wrapping. And painting in the house. I am tearing through audiobooks right now.
This is the story of Lowen Ashleigh. She is an author of subpar thriller novels. Out of money and not sure what her next move will be, she is approached by Jeremy Crawford - the wife of bestselling novelist Verity Crawford. Verity has been injured in an accident and isn't able to finish her book series, so she needs a ghost writer to help. Lowen needs the money, so agrees. She moves into the Crawford's house to start to go through Verity's novels and any notes she may have that will help Lowen complete the series. As Lowen gets to know Jeremy, and see what state Verity is in, the more she wants to stay with him. She is beginning to fall in love with him. As she looks through Verity's office, she comes across a disturbing manuscript that shows who Verity truly was and Lowen starts to fear for her life and the life of Jeremy and Jeremy and Verity's son, Crew.
This book wasn't my cup of tea. I heard quite a bit about it through my BOTM club, and I do love a good thriller. But this book was trashy. I didn't read 50 Shades of Grey for a reason. It is so vulgar that I found myself thinking I should just put it aside. But I kept listening hoping it was going to be this fantastic thrilled novel that would keep me up at night and that would redeem it. But it was not. I was disappointed that I wasted a credit from Audible on this one. This is mostly sex and very little thriller, so if that isn't for you - pass this one up. Despite the 12,000 reviews it got.
