I read/listened to this book in a day- I just could not stop reading. I was completely drawn into the psychosis of Alex Six. I walked through my day in a daze as I listened to my earbud, hidden under a lock of hair lest my children noticed and demanded my full attention which I was not prepared to give while Taplin’s tale remained undone in my mind.
Vick has a stalker. But not just any stalker. She is an off the charts psychopath with intelligence and limitless wealth- a destructive combination.
This is not your ordinary vanilla thriller. [if you know you know]. I was shocked and horrified and immediately hooked. I remained hooked until the very twisted, unforeseeable end. Vince Taplin is talented. His characters, though unlikable, are witty and creepy. I loved the time hopping and that we get to see the same scenes from both the main characters points of view. The writing from Alexa’s POV is superbly done. I felt incredibly anxious and rushed and confused at times- all at the well worded intention of Taplin. This book was twisted. Incredibly twisted and I enjoyed it. My sweet, innocent bottle of vanilla will never be the same.
Audiobook Review The narration by Berkrot was so creepy! His version was a great take on the characters. I only wish that there was a second female narrator for Alex’s character.
