Whose truth is the lie? Stay up all night reading the sensational psychological thriller that has readers obsessed, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends With Us.

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.

I love Colleen Hoover but this book was especially captivating. I like the fact that we'll never know Verity's true intentions, it feels more realistic that way, it's impossible to really truly know what's going on inside another person even someone you've spent an entire life with. 100/10

One of the worst books I have read. Dirty cheep and ugly sex through the whole book The characters were really awful people This is just my point of view For readers who like this type of book ugly sex on every page and bad characters you will love this book. I give this book no stars but I had to chose a star before I could finish my review

I've never had a book provoke so much anxiety and desire to keep reading. I can assure you, at one point, I felt palpations in my heart as my anxiety climbed-almost triggering the fight or flight sequence in my mind. Unfortunately, for my past self, I never read one of her books and experienced such a feeling from a book. Fortunately for my future self, my mind will be taken on a-many-a-journey with her brain and writing skills, hoping for the same thrill-scary or intimate. Make your new CoHort 80k + 1, you got a new fan!
