Publisher's Summary

You think he might be having an affair - do you walk out or fight back? A fast-paced, gripping psychological thriller. 

Mia has her life in order. She is a grown-up and enjoys a grown-up's relationship with Pete. Not passionate or spontaneous but solid. She knows he is 'the one'. But then she sees a text message on Pete's phone that throws her world into a spin. It is more than friendly, signed off with a kiss, and Mia has never heard of the sender, Liz. 

With her carefully mapped out life sliding out of control Mia will discover a side to herself she never knew existed, as she formulates a plan to win her happy ending. Because all's fair in love and war - isn't it?

Lack luster

The story kept my interest throughout the entire book. However I kept hoping she would just leave the son of a B. The ending is lack luster and ends with a thud. It could have been a lot better. The characters are interesting and the dialogue is good. Again...the story just never really ends...which is not great.

Not a psychological thriller<br />

I listened expecting this to be twisty and dark. Although, twisty in it's own way, it was not thrilling. I will say it makes an interesting statement about relationships, honesty and expectations

Greatly enjoyed this!

I was a little hesitant on getting this book as it seemed to have some mixed reviews, with some people loving it and others saying it was boring. I'm very choosy about what books I listen to and if they don't wow me, I usually don't bother finishing them as I feel they are not worth my time. I decided to take a chance on this one as I've been a little discouraged about the last few books I've tried and couldn't get into them. I am very glad I did! I liked the main character right away, seeing her as an every day kind of woman, like us all, and could easily sympathize with her when she suspects her boyfriend is cheating.
I finished this book in 2 days, listening every moment I could! I felt bad for the main character at the end, I won't disclose why but will only say she is desperate to be loved and thought she'd finally achieved it but we can see otherwise. I would recommend this book, well worth a credit!!!

Very Vanilla

I found it difficult to stay interested. Not exactly a terrible book, but oh so forgettable. Disappointing as I really enjoyed another book by the same author.

WOW...WELL DONE

You know those stories that you can’t judge until you’ve heard all the facts? On the surface, you think one thing but when you dig deeper, it’s another. Well, this book is exactly that. Filled with the right amount of drama to keep you interested while absolutely knowing this scenario could actually happen.
Must read!

Great Great Great

It has been a very, very long time, since I’ve enjoyed a book this much. The writing is fantastic, the narration was perfect for the character, and overall the story was very relatable (though, not every unhinged idea that pops into your head, should be acted on). I truly enjoyed the fact that the emotions Mia went through, were spot on, and for that very reason, I laughed out loud at several points, and could completely (sadly) relate to the gut wrenching pain, of loving and trusting someone, so securely, that you don’t even think it is possible, that they could look you in the eye, and lie to your face; smooth as butter. When in fact, it’s margarine.
There are some stories, that can only really come across with this much impact, if the storyteller has lived through it themselves.
I wouldn’t call this one a psychological thriller, at all. Just a completely relatable, and a totally addicting read.

Great book but.....

a rather strange ending. I hope there's going to be an additional book to answers & explain some of the questions and issues left open. Overall worth the purchase!

Drama That Could've Been Saved With 1 Conversation

There were some interesting parts of the book, even some parts that were funny. But as a whole, I didn't like this book. Most mature adults will approach their partner upon finding what seems like a suspicious text message on their phone. Mia went from seeing a message that may or may not have been evidence of infidelity and just ran with it, plotting and planning and doing all kinds of ridiculous things to get rid of the other woman.

There were a few questions I kept thinking as I listened:
Why the hell would you want to "fight" for a scumbag if you believe he has cheated on you in the first place?
Why would you have sex with him if you believed he was having sex with someone else, not only putting your health at risk but totally flushing your pride and self worth down the toilet?
Why were you willing to confront and cut off your friend who kissed him in the past but be willing to stay quiet in light of his affair?

I rolled my eyes so hard and so many times that I think I sprained one.

Lucy Dawson is a good writer but her plot needs to be a bit sturdier.
