Publisher's Summary

When Anna is beaten and left in a coma, the news of the attack sends shock waves through her small Swedish community. She had no enemies, so who wanted her dead?

Her husband is determined to get to the bottom of the attack, but soon uncovers his wife's secret life, and a town riven with desire, betrayal and jealousy. It becomes clear that only one person can reveal the truth, and she's lying silent in a hospital bed....

Held Interest but Questionably Categorized Genre

This book was decent and entertaining but it was heavy on the erotica so if you don’t expect it, I can see how it could throw you off. However, I didn’t see a lot of the twists and turns that unraveled so that made it worth it. The character development could’ve been stronger so the events made more sense.

Erotica Oh-My-God-ica!

Very Intense plot with well-constructed characters. Sex triangles, unrequited love, blackmail and betrayal. This book has it all! Whew!

Awful

Terrible story with uniformly negative characters. The performance was okay but not enough to compensate.

Enjoyed the story but...

I didn't think all of the lesbian sex scenes were necessary. Even if it weren't lesbian, many scenes were just unnecessary and gratuitous. I don't know why the author felt so compelled to graphically describe a lesbian sex scene. The story would have been much better without it.

Lesbian and open marriage

Disgusting. Should have been some type of warning in summary. A warning. I don’t read these types of books.

A Great New Author !

Brilliant novel - will certainly be looking out for the next one!
Excellent narration - consistent characterisation - easy to differentiate the various characters.

When I wake up

Mixed feelings about this book. Story line and plot were fantastic and it was narrated super brilliantly BUT I didn't like the lesbian story and over all there were a lot of very vulgar parts in the story.
