Whose truth is the lie? Stay up all night reading the sensational psychological thriller that has readers obsessed, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends With Us.

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 her family was forever altered.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents could 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 loving her.

This is the absolute worst book I have ever read. The only place it belongs is in my recycling bin. I can’t believe this is the work of Hoover. It’s disgusting. It’s over the top sexually, crappy and poorly outlined story line, and disturbing, disgusting, and horrific plot lines of abuse and murder of children just to name a few. I can’t believe Hoover wrote and published this, especially as a mother. It’s pure trash. Save yourself your brain cells and your money. It’s a solid no!!

I have not been the best when it comes to reading because a lot fo the time the book does not pull me in and grab my attention and I lose focus. With "Verity" I was drawn in as soon as I started reading and it just kept getting better and better. It's a thriller, it's spicy, but it is also a tad dark. Overall 10/10!!! Great book! You have got to read this! :)

This book had me guessing at the beginning. Happy it wasn’t as predictable as I expected. Some may say it was a horrible read, but I say judge for yourself. You may second guess yourself towards the end of the story. Because I know I surely did.

This read genuinely had my jaw on the floor several times. If you have sensitivities to child abuse then maybe skip this or just be aware of its contents. It’s a great read though with so many shocking elements and twists. I loved this!

Colleen Hoover is sick and twisted. I hate that I liked this book. I don’t know what to believe anymore. EDIT! (Spoilers Below) The more I think about it, the more I am disturbed by this book on multiple levels, and not necessarily in a good way. I went back to find the page, but I can't remember if it was Lowen or Verity who said this, but one of them said something about a write can only write the disturbed, horrid thoughts if they actually think them or think like that. Not sure if I believe that, I'm not a writer, but Colleen Hoover is; so is she self admitting to thinking thoughts as disturbed as what is in her books??? Also, as the book goes on, there's an underlying tone of Lowen getting pleasure from replacing Verity, more than just as the writer. Lowen says multiple times in the book how she doesn't want to, but.... actions speak louder than words. Especially when recreated a spicy seen she read in Veritys manuscript between her an Jeremy and BIT DOWN ON THE HEAD BOARD RIGHT WHERE VERITY DID?! I was not a fan of that at all, that sealed the deal for me of her getting off on the idea of replacing her. AND FUTHERMORE... JEREMY FOUND THE MANUSCRIPT BEFORE VERITYS ACCIDENT? Reading Veritys letter in its entirety took the book to a whole new level I don't think it necessarily had to. Instead of getting a content, happy ending, the reader is leaving the book scared for Lowen and what might happen to her if something were to go awry in their relationship. It really felt like Hoover took this book one more step then it needed to go. I'm hoping that the letter was another way Verity tried to manipulate Jeremy, like Lowen thought could be a possibility, but I don't even know what to think.
