Happy Sunday book friends. It’s a gorgeous though windy day here in Virginia. I am hoping that you have a super day and have lots of great books for the future week ahead.
Three exes and a narcissistic man! Whatever could go wrong? Meet Ruby, ex number one, Imogen, soon to be ex number two, and Naomi, soon to maybe be wife number three. …and then there is Philip Rochester, the man who entranced them all. They all come together in the book:
This interesting novel have a number of things that will delight those of us who have had a man like Philip in our past. He is a grand controller, seemingly a gift from god on the outside but a devil on the inside. All of his exes come together to eventually tackle the antics of Philip as he descends deeper and deeper into a level of aggressiveness that is frightening and beyond daunting for the three ladies. However, they are a resourceful crew and Philip perhaps has met his match in these ladies. Although Philip is clever, supposedly beloved by the police department of which he is a member, and is still able to weave his spell entrapping one of the ladies, will he eventually find that as the saying goes every dog has its day?
The book flips back and forth as Philip becomes more dangerous and the ladies seem to be enclosed within that sphere of danger. He is the ultimate nightmare always seeming to be one step ahead. Will Philip used his cunning and deceit to win or will the ladies be the victors in this game that is turning serious by the minute?
This was an enjoyable book, one that held the reader’s attention although at times perhaps stretched the envelope of believability a bit.

Thank you, Jennifer! A bit of a stretch for sure.
This was a slightly crazy read! I just enjoyed the un-believability if that makes sense. Enjoyed your thoughts ❤
