    4.75 Sinful Stars rounded up A Brand of Crazy All its Own.Be afraid Be very, very afraid Next time your neighbor or someone else smiles at you, perhaps you should just look away Catching their eye could be extremely dangerous Me Smiling wickedly as I read I love this, but it is vile I really shouldn t be liking this so much, I mean, it s so not right, but I just can t help my darn self Me Laughing mischievously, Oh my gosh, is this actually happening I cannot believe she just did that So what s the premise A man and a woman meet, fall in love and marry Together, they have the wildest and well, most terrifying of hobbies It s one I d never imagine and frankly, hope remains fictional For me, reading this was like eating a potato chip I simply couldn t get enough The secrets are whoppers and the suspense is all consuming, gritty, grimy and was like nothing I ve ever read before My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing is seriously unputdownable You simply must get your hands on it, like right this second Beg, borrow or steal if you have to, or maybe just ask nicely, whatever works You will not regret it My final thought is this My Lovely Wife is freakish and demented and I loved every second of it It is so crazy that it will make me give almost everyone I meet from now on the side eye, including you This was a buddy read with Kaceey Most of the conversations I had above smiling wickedly, etc , happened in the context of texting with her We went back...

    Five Crazy Solid StarsI am not going to get into very much of this plot I went into this book blindly and suggest you do the same It was a big surprise Millicent and her husband have two children and live in the suburb They seem to be a normal family like everyone else in the neighborhood They get very bored in their fifteen year old marriage, which is very dysfunctional They want to thrill their marriage up and they are hiding very dark secrets to keep their marriage alive.This is one crazy thriller It will blow your mind I am utterly in awe I could not believe this was a debut novel It lived up to all the hype for me This has everything that I love in a thriller I loved everything about this book This was my first solid five star for the year I loved everything about this book it definitely will be one of my favorites for this year I was immediately drawn into this story I could not put this down Before you open up this book make sure you have no plans for the day Don t answer the telephone, and don t answer the door, because all you will want to do is to read this book I am serious At least that is how I thought I did not want it to end I raced through this book and read it in a day in a half I l...

    There s no denying I m one tough customer or a picky chick as I ve so lovingly dubbed myself Being the lone misfit who can t seem to get in line with a book everyone else is awarding high ratings is proof positive At 110 pages in, I have no choice but to jump ship The shocking revelations I ve encountered thus far aren t enough to overcome the husband s bland delivery Or candidly, I m bored Maybe I ll give Millicent s husband another opportunity to amuse me...

    My Lovely Wife is a 2019 Berkley publication Sly, witty, and brilliant The tile, cover, and intriguing synopsis for this book made it sound too good to pass up and it was The premise is mostly original, as a husband and wife and their two children enjoy ,what appears on the surface, to be a nice normal, healthy, family life However, this married couple, instead of engaging in a little role play to spice up their marriage indulge in a little murder on the side instead The husband, who never reveals his real name, tells this story from a first person perspective, giving us a play by play of events as they unfold, adding all his twisted inner thoughts about what has happened, what is probably happening, what he hopes will happen, and what he is afraid will happen which is as fascinating as it is horrifying I can t believe this is a debut novel Smart, devious, ...

    4.25 starsMy Lovely Wife is a f ed up psychological thriller about a husband and wife s extremely interesting fetish A couple married for 15 years takes up an unusual hobby to keep the spark alive While their plan works to help their marriage, it can only work for so long before they are exposed In order to keep having their secret date nights, they concoct an elaborate scheme resulting in a masterful game of cat and mouse My Lovely Wife is an ADDICTIVE and TWISTED read that held my attention from the first page I just loved the tone The dark humor had me laughing and smiling at some really inappropriate moments These are characters that a reader should hate, and while the wife is depicted as being cold, there is something just so sympathetic about the husband He is quite the clever narrator While predicted one twist early on, I had no clue h...
