SHE WANTS HIM BACK. SHE WANTS YOU GONE.
Finally, Georgia has found the one. Luke is kind, handsome, and makes her feel safe – which is what she needs after everything she’s been through.
The only problem is his ex-girlfriend.
Luke says Cadence just can’t accept the breakup, and that explains the texts, the emails, the notes…
But then things start to go very wrong – will Cadence really do whatever it takes to get what she wants?
The course of true love never ran smoothly, and this is as twisty and skilful as any you’ve read this year. I guarantee that you’ll think twice before signing up for Tinder after devouring this slice of domestic noir…
Georgia is let down by her Tinder date when she meets the dashing Luke and feels like she’s won the relationship lottery. However, this knight in shining armour comes at a price. In this case, the price is his ex – the delightful Cadence. If you love domestic noir, you’ll absolutely love the way this starts to unravel as her perfect new relaionship brings some not quite so welcome baggage into Georgia’s life.
Georgia begins to experience some unwelcome side effects after dating Luke and believe me, there’s never a dull moment in this book! Cadence is a fantastic character, she’s totally lacking moral scruples but all the better a character for it! The plot zips along at a cracking pace and some of her escapades make you – if not quite admire Cadence – certainly be impressed at her imagination as she seeks a way to make sure that she stays in the picture
I’m no fan of books being painted as ‘The next…’ and we’re all sick I’m sure, of seeing books compared with The Girl on the Train or Gone Girl. This definitely isn’t ‘The Girl who won’t be content to be an Ex’ – it’s not trying to be anything else, it’s perfectly happy being its own dark self. I’d actually love to see it on screen and will be dragging people along with me to see Cadence in the flesh! Her resourcefulness and limitless imagination will certainly keep you entertained as you make your way through this novel – all too quickly, I might add
. You know that I hate spoilers so I’ve tried hard to avoid mentioning exactly how this determined Ex goes about her business – but suffice to say, there’s never a dull moment as Cadence’s motto might be ‘All’s fair in love and war’ when it comes to getting your own way…
