His therapist. Their love affair. Her Little Secret.
Cristina knows all about boundaries. As a therapist, it is vital that she keeps her clients at a professional distance.
Enter new client Leon: educated, charming, affluent -- and newly bereaved, following the death of his married lover, Michelle. Cristina soon learns that Leon has an ulterior motive for approaching her: Michelle was one of her clients, and Leon is desperate for her insights into the woman he loved.
Moved by the depth of his feelings, Cristina is drawn to help him through his grief. But as she struggles to ignore her own growing attraction to sophisticated, attentive Leon, her boundaries start to blur and then collapse, and the two embark on their own clandestine love affair.
But why does Leon switch so quickly from charm to criticism, attentiveness to distance? Can anyone truly be as perfect as he paints his beloved Michelle to have been, and what is hidden inside of her off-limits therapy file? Torn between her conscience and curiosity, Cristina is about to discover the truth is far beyond anything she could have imagined...

This is a thrilling read.
I read this in one sitting as I couldn't put it down.
Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start.
Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believable.
Great suspense and found myself second guessing every thought I had continuously.
Can't wait to read what the author brings out next.
Recommend reading.

I was provided an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher. This is my own honest voluntary review.

Ooh this one snuck on me then stunned me brilliantly. Leon and Cristina's relationship is unconventional from the off and similar to Cristina herself, I couldn't quite work out what Leon was up to. As the relationship develops I found myself wanting Cris to listen to her friend/supervisor Claire and back away. Great example of gaslighting as the behaviours creep in. I do feel like I should have worked out that superb twist, and when revealed I was kicking myself. Dark, mysterious, enigmatic.

I love physiological thrillers and this did not disappoint one bit!!
There was so much suspense and intrigue that surrounded what was going to happen that I couldn't put it down.
Story is told from Cristina who is a psychologist. We learn more about her heartbreak and grief and the vulnerability she has even though she trying to help others.
Lots of clues scattered on the way but will Cristina choose.
I dont want to give any hints as it will spoil the book but I would recommend you read it

This is the first book by this author I have read and can honestly say it won’t be my last! I thoroughly enjoyed the storylines and the twist at the end came as quite a surprise. A good page turner and very absorbing. Recommended reading
