“Her life was in danger and she didn’t know it. He felt a thrill just knowing that simple thing …”
Gemma’s business is on the brink of collapse, and there’s a real chance that she and her husband could lose everything they’ve worked so hard for.
So when a stranger offers financial help, Gemma ignores the red flags and accepts out of desperation. The condition? Just companionship – that’s all the stranger wants. Surely a small price to pay to get her life back?
But when things seem too good to be true, it’s often because they are – and soon Gemma finds herself being dragged so far into a twisted, dangerous world that she might never surface again …
When I was reading this author’s previous book, which was her debut by the way, wild horses could not drag me away, because it was sooooo good. I can imagine you wondering what my thoughts are about her second one.
Let me tell you this : The horses from last time did not succeed this time either!
I was regularly yelling: ‘Noooo, don’t do this or don’t do that’, but when you are caught between a rock and a hard place, you go for the helping hand that reaches out to you. You convince yourselft that it’s really that innocent as it seems …
Once you have spun a tight net of lies and deceit around yourself, it’s time to try and get out of it. Don’t forget that sometimes karma is a girl’s best friend. Forget about the diamonds. 😉 🙂
So yes, another great story by this author. Keep an eye out for her. 5 stars
Thank you, Sadie Ryan and Ruby Fiction
