“Will shock even the savviest suspense readers.”—Real Simple

meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith in this wildly compulsive debut thriller about a couple whose fifteen-year marriage has finally gotten too interesting...

Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs. We told each other our biggest dreams, and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored.

We look like a normal couple. We're your neighbors, the parents of your kid's friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with.

We all have our secrets to keeping a marriage alive.

Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.


  • Interesting read

    By MitchsGirl
    This book left me a little cold. The storyline had some interesting twists but I didn’t care about any of the characters . I was tempted to stop reading but I did finish it. The ending was definitely an unexpected twist but I still didn’t connect. The three stars were earned by the twists and ending.
  • Interesting!

    This book was amazing! I could not put it down from the moment I started. Samantha keeps you interested during the whole book! The ending was a little different than what I was expecting but overall a great read!
  • Bought the book from Barnes and Noble

    I have to say so far so good. 30 pages deep in this book, and I am falling in love in how everything is turning out so fast. A so-called blind man fooling other women, but turns out that he is married and so on and so forth. It’s been a while that a book ever caught my attention like this book right did. Worth every penny to get it.
  • Wow!!!

    It was an absolute thrill to read. The only thing that disappointed me was the very last sentence. I hated it.
