Her ex is hellbent on destroying her. How far will she go to stop him?
Vanessa and Curtis have just moved to an idyllic house in the seaside town of Whitstable. Their life there is wonderful, until Vanessa’s ex-boyfriend Hayden shows up out of the blue.
Hayden is not only brash and unpredictable with a warped sense of humour, he also seems intent on making life very difficult for Vanessa, who hasn't seen him since she was sixteen.
As Hayden causes more and more disruption in their lives, Curtis begins to realise that he has some kind of bizarre hold on Vanessa.
And when she suggests a plan to remove Hayden from their lives forever, Curtis becomes convinced she's hiding some big secret from her past.
But has Vanessa underestimated how dangerous and unpredictable Hayden is? How far will he go to get what he wants? And how far will she go to stop her perfect life from being destroyed?
What a little gem this is! I mean it is no surprise I would enjoy this one, as I do love Rob’s books but I am not happy with him for some of this book! I made that clear to him LOL.
This has a little bit of everything in it, splash of romance, thrills, action, and even a bit of occult! All merged into a thriller that will keep you turning those pages!! I was hooked!
Essa or Vanessa as she is now known, has secrets and a few of them! She has a wonderful life with her two children and Curtis, living in Whitstable. I loved the setting as I know the area and I could picture it clearly.
These secrets are explosive and we are dripped fed them, but the best thing is these secrets can’t be trusted. Everyone has a different point of view and it makes you question everyone. All of this is set in motion by one person and an interruption one evening.
It was an exciting and thrilling ride! I thought I had nearly finished the book at one point because I didn’t think much more could be done, but no I was only halfway through!!! It blew my mind!!
It had me guessing and as I got near the end I still didn’t know everything and then I did…wow!
Everyone played a part in the story, every character had a finite and some in ways I didn’t want. Although one got a completely messed up final ending! Loved it!!!!
Until the next time xxx
