it was amazing

I couldn’t put it this one down, nor did I want it to end!
This was a story unlike anything I’ve read before, and kept me thinking about it long after I finished it.
The story is set in the Hampton’s. The main character Corey is so spent on working for the rich. He can’t stand the wealthy and hates how they treat his mother.
To rebel and blow off some steam, he occasionally breaks into the empty homes he and his mom are employed to clean, not to steal anything, just for the thrill of getting away with it. On this one night before Memorial Weekend, Corey sneaks into a home that is not even close to being empty. He witnesses way more than he can handle and gets more involved than he anticipated.
I loved Corey’s character in the story along with his mother, Gina and Mr Sheffield who owns the home. Everyone in the story is dealing with their own life altering dilemma and it really makes you wonder what you would do in their shoes.
This story takes a few chapters to get into but once the action starts it is impossible to put down! So good!
My review will post on my blog May 1, 2019.
Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin for this advanced copy.
