On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself.
Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?
Thank you Mira Books (aka Harper Collins) for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 3 out of 5 Stars.
Not even going to lie, I stand with Natalie, and I fully support what she wanted. No spoilers here guys, but if you’ve read the book, you will understand what I mean. I liked that Natalie wasn’t Betty Homemaker, and that she had this cunning, hard edged, intense, side to her. She was more strong that her male counterpart, and put everything aside for her son. I loved it.
Wasn’t a fan of Will, he came across as an arrogant wuss. HAHA! But I also understand he was written that way on purpose. I had been in a reading slump, so this was such a great book to pull me out of it. I also want to add, that I do NOT like books based on this sort of thing, unless it is done discreetly, and with tact. I’d rather read implications, than details. So HUGE kudos to Hunt for succeeding in that!
I found the writing to be smooth, not to over the top dramatic, and very evenly paced. I loved the thrill ride I was taken on with this book. Hunt, did a great job with the twists, and turns, and the plot twists. It wasn’t too light, and it wasn’t too dark. It was a great thriller, and one that I couldn’t put down.
