It was a whirlwind romance. And when Drew, caught up in the moment, suggests that he and Poppy don’t tell each other anything about their past lives, that they live only for the here and now, for the future they are building together, Poppy jumps at the chance for a fresh start.
But it doesn’t take long for Poppy to see that this is a two-way deal. Drew is hiding something from her. And Poppy suddenly has no idea who the man she has married really is, what he is hiding from her or what he might be capable of.
This book really really appealed to me and I read it in one sitting- totally caught up in this whirlwind fairytale romance, where darkness lies at the heart of it and secrets are everywhere.
One of the great things about it was the unexpected nature of it, I really didn’t have a clue where it was going and when it got there I spent a good while pondering the outcome…choices made and beds made….
As a rather useless feminist I quite like the thought of being rescued by a man richer than God who insists I do exactly as I please for the rest of my life- but you really should be careful what you wish for, not everything can be paid for with cold hard cash…
The characters were fascinatingly flawed and the plot twists and turns beautifully, where every word could be a lie and you never know quite who the people you are reading about actually are.
I loved it. I’m a fan of divisive characters and nuanced interactions and this was a brilliant read for me.
