"This book was a fast read, with characters having many layers of violence and death in their lives. What disturbed me were the villain, a broken man who comes from nowhere and takes out his unhappiness on others, and the way in which four seemingly bright women fell for his shtick before three of them ended up in graves. I liked the main character Wren/Robin, a woman who remade her identity, but I could not believe how many women were seduced by this zero of a man, convinced to sever their relationships with family and friends and willing to give him all their money. It’s a stale template for writing about broken people. Plus, the bad man’s connection to the many women was tenuous, and his reasoning for going after Wren/Robin was petulant. Only after I finished did I recognize how little logic appeared in the man and his rationale for going after women. Can we please drop this trope of broken-man-captures-broken-women and create different stories. Downrated to two stars: I finished it but would not recommend it."
"This book started off great and captivated my attention; however, as the story went on it lost its fizzle. It was a confusing blend of the MC childhood with her father and Adam whom she met online dating that ghosted her and she fell in love. Both were very toxic relationships. The plot was there, but it just didn’t mesh well for me."
