A nightmare jolts Debs awake. She leaves the kids tucked up in their beds and goes downstairs. There’s a man in her kitchen, holding a knife. But it’s not an intruder. This is her husband Marc, the father of her children. A man she no longer recognises.

Once their differences were what drew them together, what turned them on. Him, the ex-army officer from a good family. Her, the fitness instructor who grew up over a pub. But now these differences grate to the point of drawing blood. Marc screams in his sleep. And Debs hardly knows the person she’s become, or why she lets him hurt her.

Neither of them is completely innocent. Neither is totally guilty. Marc is taller, stronger, and more vicious, haunted by a war he can’t forget. But he has no idea what Debs is capable of when her children’s lives are at stake…

Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley,  I loved her debut so was thrilled to read this.

Tina always comes across very smiley bit don’t be fooled because her writers mind is dark !

This is an intoxicating exploration of a married couple and what has happened to get them to where they are in the book.

Revenge  ,lies,secrets and addiction to name just a few keypoints to this marriage.

Powerfully emotive and raw. I’ve been in a abusive relationship and it was captured spot on.

The tension , the harrowing sense of foreboding tension.  Chilling and reels you in from the start.

Written in alternate narratives and timeliness so a very fast paced book. Cleverly written and plotted and I highly recommend.
