A number-one best seller in several categories with over 14,000 five-star ratings on Goodreads.
From the number-one New York Times best-selling and award-winning author Colleen Hoover comes "A stand-alone romantic thriller that is tragic, creepy, and brilliant!" (Mel Reader Reviews)
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 best-selling 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 their family was forever altered.
Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would 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 to love her.
Sexy. Twisted. Consuming.
Due to graphic scenes and mature content, this book is recommended for listeners 18+.

Donc nous voici avec un vrai thriller psychologique. Il commence avec un accident, un monsieur qui se fait écraser, ce qui donne le ton du roman.
Lowen qui est une auteure rencontre le mari d'une autre auteure dans des circonstances particulières et elle accepte d'écrire la fin des romans de cette femme, qui a eu un accident et qui n'est visiblement plus en état d'écrire. Elle va donc vivre chez cet homme et se lier d'amité avec lui alors qu'il a déjà connu plusieurs tragédies, il a perdu ses deux filles.
On va lire parallèmement d'un chapitre à l'autre, la vie de Lowen et celui de Verity l'auteur handicapée, car Colleen adore alterner les points de vues des personnages.
On va découvrir Vérity et ses terribles secrets.
J'ai encore été absorbée par l'histoire, je me suis demandé ou est ce qu'on allait et la fin est terrible! Car encore une fois j'avais oublié le goût de Colleen pour les rebondissements!
Un excellent roman à lire lorsque l'on aime les thrillers. Il y a un côté inquietant dans ce roman car on a l'impression que Lowen perd la tête ou que Verity n'est pas vraiment telle qu'elle est sensé être.
La touche finale est tirée par les cheveux.
Par contre la plume de l'auteur reste extrêmement agréable. A lire tout de même.
Verity est le cinquième livre que je lis de Colleen, et franchement pas déçue. Je m'étais préparée aux rebondissements, vu les avis que j'avais lu avant ma lecture. Mais sincèrement, chapeau ! Je ne sais même pas quoi dire de plus. Je le conseille vivement, vraiment vraiment !

I hate romance novels as they don’t really reflect real life - they are far too convenient - woman meets handsome man, they fall in love and it’s all perfect - and they really undermine the idea that women can live happy fulfilled lives without being in a relationship at all times. Anyway, I hate romance and this is really just a romance with a slightly odd twist to it.
I’m glad it s a short book as it meant I didn’t waste more than a day on it and it’s safe to say I won’t be reading any more “CoHo” books ever again!
I'm not going to say that I enjoyed the diary excerpts; they are deeply, deeply disturbing. However, they felt real and whilst I certainly couldn't empathise with the person behind them, they are very good at forcing you to see through her eyes at the world. It is frightening at points and it is easy to get sucked into the fear and the disgust that Lowen is feeling. Characterisations are generally quite well done, although the gratuitous and constant sex became tedious rather quickly. I felt like I was getting to know all of the characters, with all their faults and whilst I wouldn't want to go on holiday with any of them, they definitely felt real. Each and every one of these characters is flawed and each and every one feels utterly real.
It is also a realistic glimpse at the very nature of grief and loss without ever becoming preachy, with all three adult characters grieving for someone close to them in very different ways. The concept of grieving for someone who you don't particularly like all that much is also woven into the narrative quite well, and how that gives a different but no less raw experience. I did however think more could have been done with the child; at times he seemed to be there just for the cuteness factor and his reactions and interpretations of what is going on could have been utilised to a far greater extent. I liked the kid, but that's all that I can say about him. He's in therapy, then he's not in therapy, he doesn't mention the girls and he loves his mother and he's back in therapy. There's no emotional pull with him though, it's all surface platitudes.
A full star gets knocked off however due to the constant use of sex as a blunt implement throughout this novel. It's almost every other page and it got really boring. If it's not Verity being screwed by Jeremy in her diary, it's Lowen thinking about screwing Jeremy or actually screwing Jeremy. I'm no prude and I have no issue with sexual content in books, but the over-reliance on it here really did work against it. I could see that it was part of how Hoover is building Verity's character, but it did very little for me. It's a pity because otherwise I flew through this dark and nasty book at a rate of knots, desperate to find out just what was going on and just as confused and horrified as Lowen.
Here comes the spoiler....
Crew is plain old creepy but always kept in the background. What would have been a nail bitten ending was if he tipped the boat. If instead of his butter knife incident, he could have blamed it on the visitor.
But no. This book is as "shocking" as the lables on orange juice are "vegetarian".
At least here in the UK they feel the need to let buyers know that in this bottle of 100% organically squeezed oranges...that there is NOT a single drop of blood. That's nice of them, if I were a moron.
Not to be so cruel to just one nation... we live in a time when the professionals feel it is necessary to print out instructions on a box of Pop-Tarts!
If you enjoy reading books, but are ironically looking up on Google the vegetarianess of a box of fruit juice- then this book might just be your cuppa!
