Publisher's Summary

Your ex-wife didn’t leave you because of me. She didn’t abandon her little girl because of a couple of love notes in your jeans pocket. She left because she’s twisted, and she wanted to punish you. And she’s not finished yet. You have to believe me. If you don’t, there’s no knowing what she’ll do next… 

Becoming a stepmother is the best thing that ever happened to me. My favorite part of every day is picking Charlie up from school, watching her little rucksack bounce behind her as she skips over for a hug. I love the feel of those thin freckled arms around my waist. After a few rocky months of panic attacks when her mother deserted her, Charlie is flourishing. But the day Charlie’s mother Bronwyn returns without warning—showering Charlie with gifts and making promises she can’t keep—fear ripples through me.

When I raise my concerns, no one wants to listen. I know I sound like the jealous new wife, but nothing is more important to me than Charlie’s safety. Bronwyn and I have history. We both have dark secrets in our past, and I know the dangerous lengths she will go to get what she wants. 

But Bronwyn doesn’t know me as well as I know her. 

She doesn’t know just how far I will go to protect that little girl….

Terrible!!!!!!!!!

I hate to write a bad review to any book but this time I must. If this is what modern readers want I must stay with books written long ago. The heroine is completely unlikable, incapable of behaving sensibly. The hero Is a useless boy toy. The villain is obvious in the extreme. The dialog is ho hum and repetetive as are the personalities of the characters. The reading is over done.
I finished it gritting my teeth, hoping for some saving thing to happen, but alas no. The book screeched to a predictable ending, gaining a totally undeserved happiness for the stars of the story. Save your credits and skip this title. Mine is going back ASAP.

My apologies to the author.

Clueless V Evil

Good story well performed but yet another stupid gullible protagonist and a hateful enemy. This makes for a frustrating experience with my voicing no don’t no what’s wrong with you no no no.

I loved it

Pre-ordered this book and was not disappointed. I was listening every spare minute because it kept my interest from the first sentence. Another winner from Natalie Barelli.

Very disappointing

I normally love this authors books! I truly hate to write a bad review.
I kept reading in hopes that my opinion of this book would change. There were no likable characters. I kept hoping there would be a twist somewhere to show me a character to like. It didn’t happen. Also, if I hear one more description that includes a woman biting her fingernails or cuticle, I am going to scream! Lol
Save your credit! Unfortunately she missed the mark on this book. I hope that her next book is more like her previous books. This will definitely be a return. Ok

Great Twisted Ending!

As usual, Natalie Barelli brings it altogether in the end - every twisted detail. I have to admit, there was a point where I almost believed the direction the story was moving. I identified with Laura because she's a lot like me. It was actually hard to read at times. I do love the way Natalie Barelli pushes the bounds of reality. In the end, I could not have predicted it. That's the mark of a good book to me!

Ridiculous

It was unbelievable the characters were made out of cardboard.
It got out of hand towards the end.
I’m not sure why I finished it, but I did.
Maybe it was a fairytale who knows.
