"Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish. Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, to sort through years of Verity's notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get started. Lowen uncovers an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended anyone to read, with pages of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity's recollection of the night their family was forever altered. Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate him. But as Lowen's feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit, if he were to read his wife's words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her." --… (mer)

OMg I just finished. OMg ! Holy Shiitake ! Twisted, twisted twisted. It freaked me out at one point I was jumping at every shadow in the house. Holy Shiitake !!! I never saw that ending. I'm emotionally battered now. LOL ( )

Colleen Hoover is a must read author for me. Her books are nearly always perfection and even those I have not enjoyed were still wonderful books they were just not right for me. Her stories and characters are painfully real and I always become invested in the outcome. She is truly an author everyone should read at least once. ( )

I loved this book! It was so intriguing from the beginning! Lowen, a bit of a recluse and upcoming writer, is hired to finish a novel series that is written by a current, popular author, Verity. When Lowen accepts the job, she stays at the house with Verity, her husband Jeremy, and their 5 year old son Crew so she can go through Verity's old notes and current papers to help her with the next book. But as she is going through her things, she comes across an autobiography of Verity that seems to never have been seen by anyone but her. The manuscript tells of terrible, horrible things; things she's not sure if she should show to Jeremy or hide away forever. Meanwhile, she finds herself falling harder and harder for Jeremy and she thinks he is feeling the same way. Lowen is questioning every thing in the house and wonders has Verity ever been honest, even now?
Wow! This book is mind blowing. It was messed up in so many ways. It had me ranting and raving to my husband about the characters. It had me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't stop reading. I will be looking into more books by Colleen Hoover. ( )

This was a quick book to read as part of a book club. Verity starts off with some real potential and the basic plot/premise of this book is good: A writer (Lowen) is hired to finish a book series for another author (Verity) who was recently injured in a car crash. As Lowen moves into the Verity’s house, she finds a manuscript that appears to Verity’s autobiography—including myriad horrifying confessions. As Lowen reads the autobiography and tries to finish the book series, she also finds herself falling for Verity’s husband, Jeremy. There’s lots of twists and creepy moments along the way that make you question everyone’s motives, actions, whether Verity is actually injured, and who the real villain (or villains) are.

Ultimately, I was disappointed with some of the directions that the book went in. The last set of twists left me feeling let down by pretty much all of the main characters. In short, I felt like everyone turned out to be a villain in some ways. The book also spent so much time discussing the characters’ sex lives that it seriously detracted from the plot itself. Instead of focusing there, I would have preferred to see more character and plot development. As a result, the creepiness falls by the wayside and the climax of the book falls flat.

I realize that I’m probably not the target audience for this book, and others may enjoy it. But it just didn’t work for me. ( )

“What you read will taste so bad at times, you’ll want to spit it out, but you’ll swallow these words and they will become part of you, part of your gut, and you will hurt because of them.”
― Colleen Hoover, Verity


I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.
Lowen is hired to finish a series that is written by a popular writer, Verity. When she accepts she stays at the comatose writers house with her, her husband Jeremy and their 5 year old son Crew, in order to go through Verity's things so she can begin the next book. But as she is going through her papers she comes across an autobiography that seems to never have been seen by anyone but herself. The manuscript holds terrible things inside, things she's not sure if she should show to Jeremy or hide away forever. Meanwhile she finds herself falling harder and harder for Jeremy and she thinks he is feeling the same. And Lowen questions if even now Verity is being honest.
Wow. This book is mind blowing. It was really slow going at first, but once it got my attention I couldn't stop reading till I finished. It was messed up in so many ways. It had me ranting and raving to my husband about the characters, and honestly I think the only one I actually like is Jeremy and even that is a bit iffy. It had me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't stop reading. I kept think 'one more chapter' but it never ended till the book did. I literally bit my nails nice and short. I loved it and I will be looking into even more books by Colleen Hoover.
How I choose my rating:
1* Did not finish, or hated it but forced myself to finish.
2** Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!
