Wow! What a wild ride!
I keep flip-flopping on that ending!
I’ll try not to spoil anything here, but if you’ve read this you know what I mean and I want to hear from you - DM me!
First of all, I’ll start by saying I’ve never read @colleenhoover
before, but I understand Verity to be a departure from her normal style. So, consider this to be a semi-review from a @colleenhoover
newbie and a non-romance reader (usually. Never say never!)
Basically: despite all the hype which I was sure would mean my hopes were too high, I found Verity to be utterly unputdownable and I devoured it!
Things to consider:
1. This book has been touted as a “romantic thriller” which perfectly descries it, but is something I’m finding hard to peg and can’t really think of a comparison too. That being said, there are definitely some steamy scenes in here, so don’t assume we’ve strayed too far from the romance cornerstones here, because we haven’t.
2. There are some dark and disturbing maternal thoughts included that I found pretty unsettling to read. I’m not sure exactly what kind of trigger warning I am trying to give here, but if that turns you off at all this might not be the book for you.
3. There is a book within this book. I found it to be a genius plot device in this case, but then again I love books with multiple narrators. Technically Verity has one narrator, but through this second book we get the voice of another character. Consider yourself warned.
If none of these things turn you off then what are you waiting for? Grab some popcorn and a copy of Verity and dig in! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. .
I’ll put the synopsis in the comments 👇🏼
