Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Which is more dangerous, a secret or a lie?

Poppy has a secret.

It was a whirlwind romance. And when Drew, caught up in the moment, suggests that he and Poppy don’t tell each other anything about their past lives, that they live only for the here and now, for the future they are building together, Poppy jumps at the chance for a fresh start.

But it doesn’t take long for Poppy to see that this is a two-way deal. Drew is hiding something from her. And Poppy suddenly has no idea who the man she has married really is, what he is hiding from her or what he might be capable of. 

Drew says he has nothing to hide. Drew is lying.

A bit of everything

Light hearted (so probably not suitable for those who want real life) with a bit of sex, love, murder. But has a good story and lots of suspense. Much more than the photo cover and the summary!

Good read

Overall a good read. I thought the end and the reveal could have been a bit more dramatic but still an enjoyable read.

Skip chapters 8-39

I had a lot of hope for this book, but it just went on and on with no point or real story. I wished something big would happen, but it never did and the big finale ending was rubbish and a massive let down. Waste of a credit, narrating wasn’t great either.

A waste of a credit

I should have given up on this one at the beginning. Weak and unbelievable storyline as well as a very irritating male voice from the narrator. I wouldn’t waste your credit on this one.
