About the Book:
Charlotte Coburn has a tragically dark past. But she’s safe now. She lives in a gated community, protected from danger. When teenager Elle knocks at her door looking for shelter during a particularly severe storm, the woman can’t help but think how lucky Elle’s been to have found someone as friendly as her. Except Elle chose her door on purpose. She knows all about Charlotte’s secrets because they ruined her family and her life. And it is time that everyone else knew. But Charlotte’s past has left a dark void in her life, so she is concocting her own vicious plan, convinced that Elle can help fill that void. As events unfold, the truth unravels and pulls both women into a dangerous game that will leave you wondering, Who’s the villain?

I really tried to like this book, but felt the characters and story weren't enough. The characters weren't fleshed out and not enough back-story was given. It was quite repetitive and about 100 pages too long. Those extra pages could have given more to Johnathan and the triangle he created with Charlotte and Noah not to mention Lauren. I can suspend belief a little but there were too many coincidences and not one likeable character to root for. Not a satisfying read, for me, and I never connected with any of the characters so there was no investment in the outcome.

Thank you NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer and Marin Montgomery for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
