" I was leaning towards thinking I’d probably hate this book with so many reviewers thinking it crass and annoying. Well I didn’t hate it but it did occur to me more than once that I was enjoying a book version of a Lifetime movie. The thing is I agree with all the reviews, both good and bad..so I’m going with 3⭐️ maybe 3.5. What can I say 🤷♀️"
"SPOILER ⭐️ Read the book in about a week. The characters were distasteful and this book is overhyped. It glamorized the idea of this savage like female power energy, when really it was misogynistic. It was an effort in turning this traumatic experience to a female empowering story, but I just felt so repulsed from the characters. The female-powered woman killed her mother and ex-husbands mistress, but also was rude to people just because she was ‘superior’ to them. Adam, was an alpha male, misogynist, and was just a gross self-centered person. There was some homophobia in the book in my opinion even though they tried to be inclusive, there is this quote that stuck to me, “he could be straight for you.” I don’t feel like it was necessary to even add that, even though it was covered up with Sarah replying to Anne with, “it doesn’t work that way.” I don’t think that this was necessary to add. A lot of things didn’t add up like how could someone related to the person being convicted be part of the case? The law enforcement was unprofessional, someone gets physically assaulted by an officer to the point if hospitalization, and your telling me that they still have a job? There’s many holes in this book. The ending was pretty unexpected but it did cross my mind once or twice. I’m pretty disappointed with this book."
