book review | Verity by Colleen Hoover

Brief Summary:
Sexy. Twisted. Consuming. 
From the #1 New York Times bestselling and award winning author Colleen Hoover comes "standalone romantic thriller that is tragic, creepy, and brilliant!-Mel Reader Reviews

Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish. 

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity's notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn't expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity's recollection of the night their family was forever altered.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen's feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife's words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.

Due to graphic scenes and mature content, this book is recommended for readers 18+

I loveeee me some Colleen Hoover. Her writing makes you feel every single emotion and she puts you in the story. I recommend anything and everything she's very written. Like even her IG captions are good. But anyway back to her latest which is a little different for her as it's SUPER freaking dark. I mean DARK. Almost every single review says "this books shook me to my core" "I couldn't put it down and then I couldn't get it out of my head" "woahhh, what did I just read?" and I feel all of that too. I finished this book at 12:30ish on a work night and then laid awake thinking "holy shit, what just happened?" for at least an hour. If you need a twist at the end that throws everything 180 degrees, read Verity. I will say there are a few topics that are triggering and again, it is dark. I'm talking middle of the night, no street lights, power outing dark. But it's a 5 star read none the less!
