Goodreads Summary

On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself.

Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?


This was my first ever buddy read! I read this with my book bestie (@jennastopreading) and we both flew through it!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was fast-paced, suspenseful, and riveting! I always appreciate a book that can make me forget what is going on around me and just suck me into the lives of the characters, and this book did exactly that! I could relate to the mother in this story tremendously. Her innate desire to protect her child was so raw and real. As always with a thriller, I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to give anything away about the storyline.

My friend Jenna didn’t love this book quite as much as I did and I think that just goes to show how much we can all differ in our opinions. She found that there weren’t any very likable characters, while that wasn’t an issue for me as a whole.

I’d definitely recommend picking this thriller up ASAP! If you’ve read it already, did you love it or was it just okay for you?
