A modern day Fatal Attraction meets The Girl on the Train, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling new adult author Courtney Cole, now writing dark psychological suspense under the name Courtney Tate Evans.
From the outside, Dr. Corinne Cabot is living the American dream: a successful ER physician, she is married to a hardworking and handsome psychologist. Together they own a charming house in the Chicago suburbs. But Cabot has a dark personal past and her memory has holes she tries to fill in. Her sleep is ravaged by recurring nightmares of that night when, as a teenager, she found her father standing next to the bodies of two people he had shot dead. It is what she can't remember about that night that utterly haunts her. Her father is still alive in jail for that terrible crime. At times now, despite her success, she fears she is truly unable to determine what is real and what is not. Then she starts to suspect that something is amiss with her husband and realizes that nothing--and no one--in her life is as it appears.
Holy wow! This book is soooo much more than a psychological thriller! It’s an erotica psychological thriller and honestly, I was never expecting it.
From the very beginning we are pulled into this world of what’s happening now and what the crap happened back then? It’s all very confusing but immensely intriguing too. The entire plot line focuses on what the main character, Corrine, is going through and how she’s just as confused as all of us. I loved witness this character find herself in this weird, enchanting way that Tate lays out for us. Her husband, Jude, is just as heartbroken and confused as Corrine, and for me, I wanted them to find each other again and work it all out. There are definitely some times where I wondered about them as a couple. My heart ached for them, but I found the situation I’m referring to, to be very relatable.
Overall, this book captivated me. I loved the mystery and intrigue behind it, and the plot was written so very well. The plot was presented and paced perfectly and I found myself hanging on the edge of my seat. This is definitely a book I would recommend for someone who reads psychological suspense as long as they’re okay with BDSM/Erotica too.
