    Couldn't put it down!

    Jessica, a makeup artist makes enough money to make ends meet, but just barely. As she is doing makeup for a couple of college aged girls, she hears one telling the other that she’s going to blow off a ethics and morality study for the next day. She secretly gets the information from the girl’s phone and shows up for the study using her name. After all, $500 is a lot of money to her. The questions keep going deeper in her psyche. Under the guise of the study, the doctor sent her places and manipulates her to the point she doesn’t know what is real and what isn’t. Unbeknownst to her, Jessica also meets the doctor’s husband, who is also a psychologist. Who is telling the truth and who is setting Jessica up? This dark thriller will keep you guessing from beginning to end. An excellent read!

    Thank you the publisher, NetGalley and the authors Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. My first experience reading these authors and what a ride it was. Excellent story, well written. It kept me on my toes from beginning to end. Couldn’t stop reading absolutely riveting. Cannot wait for another book from these authors.

    Just okay for me

    Many thanks to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are 100% my own and independent of receiving and advanced copy. Rating 2.5 stars I loved “The Wife Between Us” and was ready for another no holds barred, twisted ride with Jessica, Subject 52, who signs up for a psychological study on morality and ethics. Do you think you’re in trouble when you lie your way into a study on ethics because you need the money? Dr. Shields takes a special interest in Jessica and lures her in with expensive gifts, high paycheques, and what is amounting to free therapy in exchange for following her instructions in what appears to be testing the mettle of a married man. Written in alternating POV between Jessica and Dr. Shields, this cat and mouse story tries to keep you off kilter as you see how Dr. Shields spins her web, always having an explanation for putting Jessica in situations that don’t feel right, in fact they make Jessica feel icky. But by this point Jessica has spilled her guts to this woman who knows all of her dark secrets and insecurities. Dr. Shields is not only beautiful, self assured, has impeccable taste and always seems to know the right thing to say to put Jessica’s fears to rest. She also knows whenever Jessica is not being completely honest. When Jessica finds out that the married man is Dr. Sheilds’ husband, Thomas, she knows something is not right. But when Thomas warns Jessica that Dr. Shields in dangerous, Jessica knows she is in trouble. Hendricks and Pekkanen write really well together, but this was not as exciting a story as their first novel. There was some suspense, but nothing like the thrilling tickle when you don’t know who is lying and who is telling the truth and will the protagonist make it out alive! There isn’t any surprising twist that you can’t see coming. This one just leads you down the path until the end. You know who that bad guy is and you can guarantee the protagonist is going to survive and yes there is some information revealed but no wow factor. The seduction of Jessica is interesting enough to keep reading but I needed more. I want that “can’t-put-it-down” feeling, or at least some doubt as to whether the doctor or Thomas is the bad guy. A lot was left untapped with Jessica and the minor characters like Lydia, and Josh, to name a few where more could have been done to create tension. Just an okay read for me.

    Fantastic read!

    I did not want to put this book down! What a ride I went on with this book!!! Jessica sneaks into a psychological study in order to earn extra money to supplement her income as a make-up artist. Things get really weird with a lot of strange things subsequently taking place. This is the second book that I have read by these two authors and I can't for their next book. I highly recommend this fantastic book. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC of this super good book.

    An Anonymous Girl

    Greer and Sarah knocked me off my feet last year with "The Wife Between Us" and I knew that I had to have this next work as soon as it dropped in early January. I was not at all disappointed. Jess is a complicated, moving character with a matching complicated current life in the city and past. The depths of the betrayal, obsession and - what seemed at times to be normal - human behaviour in this novel were apparent early on. I wanted to throw all of my responsibilities as an adult to the wind to finish this one in a day, but perhaps for my own good I savoured it. I hope these two will write together more in the future, because when they do it is magic.
