I wasn't planning on leaving a review and only because I haven't been in a review writing mood lately but since I can't stop thinking about this one, I thought I should say a few quick words.
For a debut novel, and a short story, this was definitely worth reading! I say that because any book that leaves me thinking about it and questioning things long after I finished, means it obviously left some kind of impression on me. Albeit some of the story was a little frustrating, almost angsty (which I'm not much a fan of anymore), but as it continues that feeling settles and things start shifting and I saw what was really going on...or did I?! As I said this was a short story, quick read, so I feel it could have had a little more meat to it but then if it did, would it have left me questioning things? And I have to say I love when a thriller/mystery leaves me in that state of mind, it makes it that much more interesting and irresistible.
I was back and forth how I was going to rate this one but no matter it was going to be a high 3.5 to 4 stars but as I sit here and continue to think about the book I can't help but give it more stars. I am looking forward to see what other stories this author gifts us with.
At first this seemed like a coming of age love story, something that spanned the friendship of HP and Angela from high school to college to adulthood. Everyone would argue that they were soulmates, and they kind of were, creating this incredibly beautiful friendship that slowly blossomed into something more.
I really loved the beginning of this story. I loved this friendship between Angela and HP and even with the people in their lives around them. It seemed like a really natural, relatable high school love story without it being too cheesy. It really sucked me in and made me feel all kinds of things for these characters.
And then the train derailed. Not in a sense that things went downhill, completely the opposite. This relatively innocent little love story starts to get more complicated and a little bit darker and people make mistakes and the hurt each other and you move into another completely natural, relatable almost-adult love story, with obstacles to overcome and pain to endure and the lingering hope that eventually, these two floundering souls will find their way back to each other.
And then things completely derail. Again, the book doesn’t go downhill, but the final turn completely blindsided me and left me with so many conflicting feelings. Characters I loved were doing things I hated. Things and actions weren’t making sense to me, the happy ever after pieces just weren’t coming together no matter how hard they tried to force them. Everything was pretty chaotic. In the best way possible.
At the very core, this was a thrilling mystery that tries to uncover the truth about a girl who goes missing. We’re following Angela as she relates a statement to the police about her possible but denied involvement, a tone that sometimes bothered me as we went along but eventually grew natural. She narcissistically makes the officer listen to her entire sordid story about her young love, which starts out very passionate and swoony and then morphs into a completely different monster.
I haven’t felt this conflicted and unsettled at the end of a read in quite some time, but I’m not entirely sure I actually liked the ending. The entire story was very strong, very two-sided, very conflicting, but the ending was just sort of expected, though I could never once with full confidence say I knew how it would turn out.
This book was a rollercoaster and it threw me and my emotions all over the place. It was very manipulative in that sense, much like many of the characters, and I was completely pulled into the messed up little game they were all playing. So do our fated love birds finally get their happy ending? Well, that, my friends, is our little secret.

This starts off in a police interrogation room. Angela is being questioned by the police on a missing person, her ex-boyfriends wife. Angela wants him to know the whole story and he should be able to figure out where Saskia is.
The story Angela weaves starts with her and her family moving all over the states. They settle down in a small community where Angela meets HP. He takes her under his wing and they become fast friends. But Angela and HP grow to love each other as teenagers can and agree they are soul mates and will spend their life together. But, Angela, after graduating from high school gets a scholarship in England and wants to go there for a few months. HP doesn't want her to go, but believes in their love and accepts that she should go.
While in England, Angela meets another man, but they are just friends. When HP comes to England to visit her, their love story falls apart..HP thinks that she has been cheating on him and he gets mad and goes to a club..There he meets Saskia. While Angela thinks she can get HP back, he leaves England with Saskia and travels to her home in Australia.
I don't want to tell you all of the story because there are so many different twists and turns. I can just say, I didn't see the ending coming of the way things would turn out..A great book not to be missed.
This is a character-driven psychological thriller that illustrates just how fine the line between love and obsession can truly be and reminds us that every choice, good or bad, has a consequence.
The writing is crisp, polished and fluid. The characterization is spot on with a multitude of characters that are multi-faceted, insecure and vulnerable. And the plot is an intricately interwoven tale that unravels piece-by-piece creating tension, unease, and suspicion as it subtly reveals all the personalities, relationships, motivations and actions within it.
This is, ultimately, a story about deception, danger, competition, desperation, dependence, loneliness, manipulation and the fragility of young love and it's hard to believe this is Nay's debut novel. It's sophisticated, highly entertaining, and a must-read that I guarantee you won't be able to put down.
