Blurb from the cover:

A wickedly dark debut thriller about three women who’ve all been involved with the same man and realize the one thing they have in common is that they all want revenge against him…

Divorces are often messy, and Imogen’s is no exception. Phillip Rochester is controlling, abusive, and determined to make things as difficult as possible. When he shows up without warning demanding that Imogen move out of their house by the end of the month or he’ll sue for sole custody of their young son, Imogen is ready to snap.

In a moment of madness, Imogen does something unthinkable–something that puts her in control for the first time in years. She’s desperate to protect her son and to claim authority over her own life.

But she wasn’t expecting both Phillip’s ex-wife and new girlfriend to get tangled up in her plans. These three very different women–and unlikely allies–reluctantly team up to take revenge against a man who has wronged them all.

My rating:  3.0 stars out of a scale of 5

My review: I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review.

The premise behind this book had sounded interesting to me. And I ended up liking certain pieces of the plot line but overall the book was not my favorite. It had some interesting parts to the plot line and there were some plot twists that I didn’t exactly see coming. But at the same time the plot was a little slow in parts and also a little redundant in how naïve Imogen was in thinking she had finally escaped Phillip’s clutches. I also felt like Phillip got off a little light considering how shitty of a person he was. Overall the book was good and was an entertaining read but like I said, not my favorite read.
