I went into it blind - I knew that E.K. Blair would bring it and holy shit SHE DID!

Review by Raychel
EK Blair can write a thriller like no other. She's always taking things in a new and different direction. She doesn't shy away from anything so you are constantly wondering what will happen next and if your heart and mind can handle what she puts on those pages. The prologue grabbed me and I was hooked. From there, I was completely swept away into a world of political fallacies and hidden agendas.
The story is told in a dual narrative. I could connect with both of th ...more

E. K. Blair wove an intriguing, suspenseful and all consuming psychological thriller. I was fully invested in Emma’s story. Her situation is dire and the lengths that she goes to is interesting to say the least.
There are many moving parts to this story and I devoured every word. E. K. Blair is a one click author for me.

Just when I thought I knew where things were going EEEEEK! So many twists and turns. The main Characters were Emma, Carly, Luca, Tripp and Olivia. It begins one way like I said. I thought I knew where the story was headed. I was totally wrong!
