WARNINGS: scene of past child abuse, suicidal ideations, murder of a secondary character, attempted murder, infidelity, kidnapping, stalking
Connor Ryman thought he had it all—a successful career as a mystery novelist, a condo with stunning views of Seattle’s Lake Union, a supportive and long-term partner, Steve, and a loving daughter, Miranda, who was following in her father’s creative footsteps.
It all went bad when Steve left the family suddenly. Jilted and heartbroken, Connor begins to search for love online. So long off the market, he enlists his daughter’s help in crafting a dating profile.
His prayers are answered when Trey Goodall, smart and handsome, answers his ad. He’s witty, urbane, a wealthy attorney, and his sex appeal is off the charts. But he’s a liar, a monster under a pretty mask. Miranda sees through the red flags and senses something very wrong beneath the façade.
Can she convince her father to save himself before it’s too late? Or will Trey, a master manipulator with a very tainted history, play upon Connor’s innocence to ensnare him in a web of deceit, intrigue, and, ultimately, murder?

Trigger warnings for suicidal thoughts, infidelity, child abuse
Thank you, NineStar Press, for the advance reading copy.
One of the books which lived up to its blurb. And I am happy!
This book gripped me from the very first page! Because things kept happening and I was just not ready for them! And I will never be.
Please make sure you are aware of all the trigger warnings given at the beginning of the book and make sure you're mature enough and ready to read a story like this one.
The triggering scenes were a bit too much for me at times so I had to keep the book away for hours before picking it up.
The writing is really good. The character development is surprising. We get to read the story from different perspectives.
I don't think anyone would be ready anytime to read this book but I am sure once you start reading this book you won't be able to put it down.
I loved the father daughter bond. It's beautiful. I wish they ended up with someone better. Damn.
Can we stop crying now?
