Ridley Jones is one crazy lady! This book is a must read. I loved reading how she told the story. It was the perfect blending of a writers perspective and hindsight. Throughout the whole book I was aching to know what she knew. Suspense is my favorite to read and I definitely was please with this suspense novel!

Almost in every page of this book there is a desire to scream "Stop it. We already know how difficult is for you - the revealing about your real origin!"

The author develops the characters extremely well. The plot is fast paced!
Enjoyed the author's reflections on different aspects of life.

I liked this book and its characters. It is worth sticking with. If you do you will find out the protagonist's "attractive, fit, nice, and wealthy boyfriend" is not all he appears to be. Also the love interest is a good guy and it is worth looking beyond tattoos and biceps (and why should that matter?). This is my 2nd book by Unger and I liked it much better than Die For You. The ending might leave a little to be desired but I felt it was realistic if not all wrapped up neatly.

Good book with lots of twists and turns. The narrator and the reader have no idea who to trust. There is plenty of unanswered questions at the end, so be prepared to also read Sliver of Truth, the second Ridley Jones book. I really enjoyed these books and read the two of them in four days.
