This was one tension filled story!

Ellie and Jack have been married for nine years and life is good. Even with Jack having to travel for his job they are in a great place. So when Ellie suddenly begins to get strange text messages from an anonymous number, she does what anyone would do. Blocks the number and carries on with her perfect life.

However, seeing as this is a romantic suspense, things don’t stay perfect and that number doesn’t stay blocked.

I loved the relationship Ellie and Jack had. T

"Anonymous" was such an engrossing read.
This was my first L.P. Dover book and I am pleased to say it was a positive experience for me.
I read this in one sitting as once I started reading "Anonymous"I found it impossible to put down.
I found I really enjoyed the established dynamic portrayed between Ellie and Jake.
It was so refreshing to be on a journey with a long-term married couple who are not afraid to express their feelings towards each other.

Let me start by saying I wanted to love this book. Creepy text messages, ex-boyfriends who just can't take a hint, who hasn't experienced that? 

The thing is this book fell flat for me. The main premise had potential. Some events that lead us to the ending felt lazy and inconsistent with the reality I'm familiar with. The author took a lot of liberties, such as police consulting with the husband of a victim and turning on one of their own even with only minimal c

Honestly, this book was not bad. But the writing was very Plain and Bland and Dull and Boring.
I was intrigued as to who the stalker is. That's it.
Just skimmed through this one.
Not for me.

Thank you to the publisher for sending me an ARC.

I really enjoyed this well written romantic suspense with an established couple. This author did a fantastic job of writing a married couple but still including a good amount of romance. The suspense was really well done and kept me guessing until the end. Highly recommend!

Suspenseful standalone that will keep you on the edge of your seat... unless it doesn’t.
it’s an enjoyable quick read but unfortunately nothing more. It’s predictable and the writing is plain and dull. There’s a great unexpected twist at the end and by that I mean you will figure out who the stalker is 20 pages in but then you will say “no way, that would be too obvious so it has to be anyone but” and then BAM! You were right all along. What a twist dot dot dot

I enjoyed this quick read. Story had a few twists that were pretty awesome and it was really well written. I loved how in love Jake and Ellie were.
Oh and the sex...lots of it. Jake and Ellie had their own 50 shades of grey going on 🙊 😂
I do recommend this book for a fun read that promises a few twists. Enjoy!
I rate it a 3.5 /4

Thank you to #NewGalley, the publisher and the author for my free ARC in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!!

I could not wait to read this book as everything about it drew me in, from the anonymous texter to the dark and mysterious cover in black, red and white. If there's a trope that I love it is stories with texting. In Anonymous, we have Elizabeth Kingston who is happily married to Jake and has the best friend any girl can have Owen. She also runs her bakery and has the opportunity to expand and franchise out. Life is going great for her, that is until one day she gets a strange text. The way the p ...more

Ellie and Jack have been married for nine years and life is fantastic. They are a couple who are seriously in love with one another. And they were ready to start a family together. They were the picture perfect couple. Then suddenly things started going off-kilter-- Ellie starts getting disturbing texts from a mysterious phone number, a phone number she doesn’t recognize so she just up and blocks that phone number and deletes the texts. Ellie thinks everything is now ok but then several months l ...more

Anonymous is NOT a dark read. Therefore I had to step back, reprogram my brain, and begin again. After beginning again, the writing in this story held me hostage in its clutches from beginning to end!

Jack and Ellie are married so there’s no first meeting, at least for me. In this romantic suspense, someone is jealous and set out to tamper with Jack and Ellie’s bliss. Don’t you hate when people can’t get over themselves and are purposely petty? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cussed out Anon

ARC Netgalley for honest review.

I've read a few of L.P. Dover's books and they are fun to read. This book had great characters and a very suspenseful story line. You think you know....but you just can't believe until.....

I love the bakery aspect of the story too. It softens the build up of tension and made me quite hungry for something sweet.

It's a good time.
Totally not what I was expecting. The story felt very flat and boring. I just couldn't seem to care about the Hero or the Heroine or what happened to them. And it was very predictable who the villain was.

3.5 stars!!!

“Every person has a story to tell. Some may be sweet with a happily ever after, but there are others that end in tragedy. Mine has yet to be finished.”

This was a book that drew me in by its cover, dark and mysterious, and that pretty much sums up its contents. Mystery, suspense and intrigue. This book centres around an already married couple, so don’t go into this expecting romance, although our hero and heroine are still very much in love and extreme

Anonymous was my first book by this author and it will probably be the only one that I read by her. The writing wasn’t awful, it was just flat and very plain. There were no powerful lines to highlight and no exciting and refreshing writing style present.

The cover to this book drew me in, not having read the blurb, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The story line in this book drags and drags and is very excessive. Not to mention, there is no plot and the mystery aspect was predictable and very

Ellie and Jack have been married for nine years and are blissfully happy but when Ellie starts getting strange text messages their lives are turned upside down.

A romantic suspense story done really well, even though I guessed the creepy stalker dude early on I was still on the edge of my seat trying to guess what he’d do next.

Ellie and Jack were a cute couple, the author does a good job of conveying just how much they love each other. I always like reading about a couple who have a great famil

I'd actually rate this 3.5 - when, oh when, is Goodreads going to allow 1/2 stars? Ellie has the perfect life, perfect husband, perfect male bestie, pretty much a pretty perfect life. Then things suddenly take a turn when she starts being stalked by someone who wants her, and that someone is a little bit creepy and willing to try to take her husband out of the picture to get at her. There are a few twists and turns along the way, but I was able to figure out the whodunnit and why pretty early on ...more

As this is my first L.P. Dover story I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Anonymous is a suspenseful story about a couple that is totally in love with each other. Just when things are going great for them someone starts texting Ellie weird messages.

Ellie and Jake are a wonderful couple who have everything going for them. So when Ellie starts getting weird text messages from someone she doesn't know what to do. But when she feels like someone is watching her, she finally tells her husba

From the cover this book could look like a dark romance, but it isn't. This is a romantic suspense story where our heroine Ellie starts getting uneasy because she receives some texts from a number she doesn't know. Hence the title "Anonymous". She doesn't reveal to her husband Jake that she's getting these messages hoping the sender won't bother her anymore, but she's forced to seek help when the assailant doesn't stop contacting her.

I have to be honest. Despite the book is not that lon

Wow! That's the first word that comes to mind when thinking of how to describe this novel. From the first page of the prologue to the last page of the book, I was hooked on Ellie and Jake's story. This book was such a page turner and I read it within 12 hours. It was just that good and I couldn't even put it down. I love when stories flow so easily and are fast paced and keep me engaged. As I was reading, I could perfectly envision every character and scene as if I were watching it being display ...more

ANONYMOUS. This book is so outside the box – and I loved it!

A married woman confronted with a stalker, a person she shares a past with… First things first: No, this story absolutely does not contain cheating. Like at all. And no, of course it’s not her husband stalking her. These two have bonded deeply and truly over their marriage and their interaction and passion for one another just had me swoon sooo much. There are really too few romances about already established couples out there. Sigh. Ye

Leslie did a really great job with this book. It was the perfect mix of mystery and romance.
Ellie is a really great charterer, head over heels for Jake. He's amazing too bu the way. The only one I was iffy about was Owen. If you love mysteries, this book is perfect for you

The premise of this book had so much potential but somewhere along the line the story just didn't live up to the blurb. I still enjoyed the story for what it is worth but it could have been more. I actually thought I was going to read a twisted dark tale of deceit and lies.

So the story begins with Ellie receiving some weird creepy text messages. She blocks the number and hopes that it all goes away. Then the messages start up again and things get weird.

This author is a one click author for me. And even though I am a big wuss when it comes to reading suspense, I knew I couldn't pass this one up. I was hooked by the description alone.

This is the story of Elizabeth. She is a very happily married woman--so this is not a tale of romance. This is a story of love gone astray. Someone from Elizabeth's past--before her time with her husband began, is feeling the need for revenge. A lover spurned? Maybe. Whoever it is is creeping Elizabeth out
