Unnecessarily Explicit, Vulgar, Trashy and Dumb

Vulgar and unprofessional. I did not want to hear those filthy, degrading thoughts running through his head about the sex he had with the woman. I barely could listen. Forwarded through most of this book. And a woman actually wrote this???
"F" word, etc., used with emphasis throughout the whole book, from everyone.
Why do some of you authors think that vulgar language and explicit sex scenarios are cool? NOT. To the author: you trashed your own novel. Took its dignity away. You reduced the number of readers. Audible needs to start rating these b/c they're almost like movies--PG, R, X, etc.
The narrator was talented with her voices, but there was no warmth at all and she over-pronounced endings of words like a teenager, which was very annoying. I will never read a book by this author again, nor the narrator.
I simply cannot believe the amount of good reviews. The worst Audible experience I've ever had.

No, just no!

I don't normally write reviews of books I didn't like. Writing is hard and I admire anyone who can write a whole book, and some things are just based on personal taste. But this author did something I can't tolerate: she violated the contract with the reader. In first person narration, you can't have people thinking one way all through the book and suddenly changing their thoughts at the end to create a "plot twist." I can't believe so many readers went along with this and rated it five stars, but for me this was not just unacceptable, but outrageous. Sorry I wasted my time on this.

*No Spoiler*

The story line was comically predictable. The writing with a border line high school level. I bought into all the wonderful reviews only to be incredibly disappointed. Don't waste your credit.

Excruciating listen

The writing is horrible and forced. The male narrator's performance is over the top. A few gems: "The contrast [between new and old parts of a town] was almost poetic in its sadness;" "The first time I saw her it was as if i had been grabbed around the throat with two hands." "She brings out my animal instinct." - These all from the male narrator. From female narrator: Hard to recall the irritating and trite statements she made but they were mostly about how great she was- i.e. the police detective looked at her with newfound respect after she came out of the bathroom at the station. He must have googled her and found out who she was - the best defense lawyer around. Blah blah blah. All along the lines of how she is such a "*** -buster" and so accomplished, hard working, brilliant, etc. The line "her blond bun was tight with not a strand out of place" was written at least three times at different points to describe her in the first 45 minutes or so of the audiobook - which was as far as I got. The dialogue is just bad. Example: "X (don't remember the character's name) was the first person I met in my first year at Yale Law School." Then later, after X sees the female narrator "in action" giving a closing statement to the court: "Wow, so impressed. i haven't seen you in action since moot court at Yale Law School." Anyone who went to Yale Law School - or any law school for that matter - would not have to say the full name when speaking to a cohort. You'd just say, "last time i saw you in action was in moot court in law school."
So poorly written that I couldn't focus on the plot. It might have been interesting to see how it played out, but it was not worth it to slog through that writing. I literally cringed so many times over the less than an hour I spent listening. Do yourself a favor and don't waste a credit on this one.

Everything I Like In A Domestic Thriller

NO SPOILERS!

I listen to 100s of psychological thrillers and it’s rare for me to not figure things out. This book had me hooked from chapter one and kept me guessing until the end. I loved that there are two narrators, both are excellent. The author took some risks in the story and that is refreshing.

I suggest this book to those that like dark domestic, legal, and/or psychological thrillers. The characters are entertaining, but stay away if you take issue with “f”bombs and explicit sexual situations. I personally love thrillers with all of that if it serves a purpose and with this one it did. It’s not for prudes.

Slow start great ending

For me personally the beginning was a little slow but I kept listening and was soon hooked. Every time I thought I had it figured out I was definitely proved wrong. That ending will have you jaw dropped.

So ridiculous

I cannot believe this book got so many great reviews. I don’t write a lot of reviews but I just had to for this one. I think if this was a young adult book I could maybe understand, although maybe then they couldn’t throw in all the F bombs! But honestly it felt like it was written by a high schooler. It was silly, and remedial and all over the place.

A true page turner

I liked how the author got my attention in the first few chapters. As I read, I found myself wanting to know more. The story was easy to follow and I did not see the twists coming. Every surprise was intriguing. I loved the ending. I really enjoyed this book.

Gripping from the start

Never read anything by this author before and I certainly wasn't disappointed. The book is so gripping right from the start. You develop a love for the 2 main characters even though one of them is on trial for murder. There are plenty of surprises, twists and turns along the way. I didn't enjoy the performance at the start but after a while it grew on me. would surely recommend 👌

Gripping, well told thriller.

I absolutely loved this book and couldn't put it down until I'd finished it. The use of two narrators is really interesting and it works so well for this story. Full of twists and turns, keeps you on the edge of your seat. Would 100% recommend!

Wish I had read it rather than listened..

Saw this raved about on Booktok & was excited to read/listen to it.. But I was disappointed. Liked the story & the twists, but didn’t enjoy the narration at all, especially the male voice. The voices he attempted to use for any female character were just hard to listen to & found myself wanting to skip over his chapters. I think she did a good job though & brought her characters to life. I did pick parts of the ending, but still liked the extra little twists that came with it. I wish I had physically read this rather than listened via audiobook as I think I’d have given it a higher rating that way!

Ridiculous story with many errors. It’s as if the author hadn’t read the first half of the book when writing the second half.

The plot was ridiculous and the facts of the crime changed as the book went on. It really was as though the author hadn’t read the beginning when writing the end. Implausible and not at all enjoyable.

Lots of potential

This book had a lot of potential. The premise of the book really intrigued me but I wish the characters were a bit more fleshed out. I would have really loved to see characters growing due the events around them. The characters also seemed to make odd choices just for plot convenience. There were also big plot holes that couldn’t be overlooked.
It is an okay read, I guess.

Dreadful rubbish

This is a terrible story. The amount of sex, pounding, talking about how perfect the women is just sends me spare. The characters are fake the relationships shallow. Save yourself money and don’t buy it.
