    This is the type of thriller we seek! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

    Another short synopsis, and another review where I try to keep all the goodies hidden. Seriously! I don’t to give away a word of this juicy thriller!

    Two people fall in love and have kids. They are living the American dream. Then, they become restless.

    For all appearances, they are the typical couple. One you may know.

    Their secret for staying together? Wait for it!

    A Brand of Crazy All its Own.

    Be afraid. Be very, very afraid! Next time your neighbor or someone else smiles at you, perhaps you should just look away. Catching their eye could be extremely dangerous.


    Me: Smiling wickedly as I read: “I love this, but it is vile! I really shouldn’t be liking this so much, I mean, it’s so not right, but I just can’t help my darn self!"

    4.5, maybe 4.75 stars, rounded up!

    If you're looking for a heartwarming love story, a tale of two people whose marriage is so full of love and devotion...find another book. This was one crazy, tension-filled, suspenseful book that had me shaking my head and wondering what would come next!

    On the surface, they seem like the perfect family. He is a tennis pro at the local country club, she is a successful, high-end real estate agent. They have two teenage kids who play sports, do reasonably well in

    Pure evil beneath the facade of suburban comfort. I was encouraged by my GR friend Susanne to read this and despite my weariness with thrillers, I will admit that this works. If thrillers are you thing....go for it.

    4.25 stars

    My Lovely Wife is a f*ed up psychological thriller about a husband and wife’s extremely interesting fetish!


    A couple married for 15 years takes up an unusual “hobby” to keep the spark alive. While their plan works to help their marriage, it can only work for so long before they are exposed. In order to keep having their secret “date nights,” they concoct an elaborate scheme resulting in a masterful game of cat and mouse.

    My Lovely Wife is an ADDICTIVE and TWISTED read that held m

    *deep breathing to calm myself so I can write this review*

    Ok so when I got this book in the mail I literally jumped up and down while holding it to my chest....aaaaannnd I may have squealed just a little bit. My boyfriend thinks I'm a nutcase.

    Samantha Downing's debut novel is de-friggin-licious.

    Since the description for this story gives practically nothing away, I don't want to spoil the readers experience whatsoever with a detailed review.

    The prose is precise and to the point, never once get

    There are three things you should know about Millicent.

    1. She fills a room with her charisma and beauty

    2. She's a perfectionist

    and

    3. She's a psycho



    This book surprised me in the best way. I couldn't put it down. I was actually having a conversation with a friend the other day, and I remember saying "if you aren't gasping at every turn and you keep taking breaks, than why are you reading it?" I may hold my books to a fairly high standard, but why shouldn't I? There are way too many stories out the ...more

    Five Crazy Solid Stars

    I am not going to get into very much of this plot. I went into this book blindly and suggest you do the same. It was a big surprise. Millicent and her husband have two children and live in the suburb. They seem to be a normal family like everyone else in the neighborhood. They get very bored in their fifteen year old marriage, which is very dysfunctional. They want to thrill their marriage up and they are hiding very dark secrets to keep their marriage alive.

    This is one cra
