Single will grip you right from the start, leaving you unsure of which way to turn. What would you do to protect your sanity? Your children? Having never been in this particular situation, it's hard to say. One thing's for sure, K.L. Slater has provided, without a doubt, a 5-star quality read!

I was hooked right from the prologue. We meet Darcy, a single mother to two young boys just trying to do the best she can in an impossible situation. She's forever thankful for the support received from her in-laws in the aftermath of her sons' father's death. So thankful that she's willing to ignore their overbearing ways out of respect for that support.

Years later Darcy ends up falling hard and fast for the charming off-duty doctor and single father George who saved her youngest son's life after a mishap on a rope bridge. Not long after they're combining families. Now they're a seemingly happy couple who vacation with their three kids and live in a beautiful house, with a housekeeper. What more could one want?

Soon things start to go downhill as Darcy learns of George's obsessive ex, Opal. Is she the one sending funeral flowers, vandalizing her car and following their every move? Just how far might she go?

Some might say that what Darcy and George share is love at first sight, others may say it was simply a case of the wrong time, wrong place. I personally think they fell a little too fast for comfort. Isn't this often the case with charming, deceiving partners though? Slater lets you be the judge as she takes you on a whirlwind adventure with psychological thrills you never could've imagined.

I'll admit, I went into this story thinking that I had it all figured out. I've never been so happy to be so wrong. Sure, a few details panned out the way I thought (i.e. the picture-perfect new boyfriend not being so perfect), but mostly I was thrown for a loop at every twist and turn. This author’s way with words and ability to flawlessly switch between characters kept me swiping away at my Kindle. I was anxious to get to the bottom of the story. I needed answers and oh did I get them!

I recommend this book to anyone looking for an edge of your, seat stay-up-all-night read. Why? Because the suspense was just that good and I did just that!

Thank you to NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and the author K.L. Slater for providing me with an advanced reader copy of this title in exchange for an honest review.
