Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.
Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity's recollection of the night her family was forever altered.
Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents could devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue loving her.

This book was phenomenal and pulled me in immediately! Sometimes it takes a few chapters before I'm interested in a book, but this one was different. This book isn't for everyone, as it has description of child abuse and sexual content, so BEWARE in case that will bother you. I HIGHLY recommend reading this one. Just when I thought I might know what's going on, BOOM, CoHo throws a curveball and I'm left in pure shock. I listened to the audiobook, and both of the narrators did a wonderful job. I will definitely be purchasing a hardback copy of this book for my bookshelf with my favorite books. Well done CoHo!!!

Riveting, haunting, complex. In this mind-blowing book Colleen Hoover really takes you on a journey. I couldn’t put this book down. Jeremy’s wife is left unable to finish her book series after an accident, Lowen is brought in to author the rest but stumbles on a manuscript that changes everything. One question that needs to be asked after reading this book is who is really telling the truth?

This was by far my most favourite thrilling, romantic book I've ever read. I recommend this book to everyone looking for something to read in one night. Once you pick this up it will be impossible to put down. Coleen Hoover is my new favourite author and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.
