Description from the Publisher through Netgalley
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?
All I had heard about this book was exactly what I posted above. I was thrown for a loop when I read the book and found out what the story was really about. I really struggled through the content of the story although it was well written. I did read through to the end because I wanted to know the outcome but I really had a hard time “enjoying” this book because of the subject matter.
I do not want to tell you what it was about because it seems that the publishers are keeping the content a secret but it is a difficult topic to read about.
I am struggling to rate this book because of the mix of emotions about the content and the actual writing. I am going to hesitantly give this book 3 crowns.
I received an E-Arc of this book by the publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
