Book Review Of “Because You’re Mine” By Rea Frey @StMartinsPress @ReaFrey_Author

Synopsis-  But it’s the lies that keep you safe.
Single mother Lee has the daily routine down to a science: shower in six minutes. Cut food into perfect squares. Never leave her on-the-spectrum son Mason in someone else’s care. She’ll do anything―anything―to keep his carefully constructed world from falling apart. Do anything to keep him safe.
But when her best friend Grace convinces her she needs a small break from motherhood to recharge her batteries, Lee gives in to a weekend trip. Surely a long weekend away from home won’t hurt?
Noah, Mason’s handsome, bright, charismatic tutor―the first man in ages Lee’s even noticed―is more than happy to stay with him.
Forty-eight hours later, someone is dead.
But not all is as it seems. Noah may be more than who he claims to be. Grace has a secret―one that will destroy Lee. Lee has secrets of her own that she will do anything to keep hidden.
As the dominoes begin to fall and the past comes to light, perhaps it’s no mystery someone is gone after all…
Because You’re Mine is a breathtaking novel of domestic drama and suspense.
Prepare to stay up all night.

Thank you Rea Frey and St. Martin’s Press for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I rate this book a 5 out of 5 Stars.

Rea Frey, the amount of talent you have is astounding. I was lucky enough to be able to review “NOT HER DAUGHTER” and absolutely fell in love with it, so as soon as I saw Rea was writing another book, I knew I had to have it. This book I love just as equally, if not more than NHD.

First off, let’s start with the Note From The Author, Rea starts off this book with her own personal story, and when I read it, my first thought was “wow” I sent her a message, and I thanked her for her honesty, and for making herself very relatable to some of her readers. Make sure you read it!

I loved everyone, I loved that every single character was unreliable in one way or another. I didn’t know who to trust, and I felt like my head was spinning trying to keep up with them. (In the best way possible). I loved he formatting, the Parts 1, 2, 3, the alternating characters, the alternating between past, and present. The insights you get to Lee, Grace, and Noah. It was quite literally the best guessing game I have ever played. This was like a puzzle, and I had the pleasure of piecing this incredible story together.

There was so much complexity to this story, it wasn’t just a simple read. Everyone had a tragic, dark history, and even saying that, once I got to the end, I was completely blindsided, I was for sure I had it figured out, I had even messaged Rea and told her my guess. Happy to say, I was way off course! I am so happy that the ending was so mind blowing, and nothing I could have ever predicted.

When you read other reviews, stating this book is Compulsive, edge of your seat, twisted, evil, dark, creative, intense, thrill ride, atmospheric, etc. It is all of that, and so much more. It is dark, and delicious, heart breaking, and perfect, I LOVED EVERY. SINGLE. PAGE.

This book is on sale August 6th, at your favorite Book Store.

She Is going to die.

She doesn’t know it yet.
