The Woman Inside I'm probably at 375 stars so I'll round upIf you like your thrillers with twists and turns than a roller coaster grab your safety harness and pick up a copy of EG Scott's new thriller The Woman Inside This is a crazy book one which kept me guessing kept me racing through the book to see how everything would turn out and if I'm honest made me roll my eyes once or twice tooIt was love at first sight for Rebecca and Paul Both were wary of relationships despite the fact that Paul was married at the time and both shared dark and painful childhoods marked by tragedy but they couldn't imagine not being together almost as if destiny brought them together They shared a passionate relationship and dreamed of building an amazing home on Long Island and both contributed—Mark with his contracting business and Rebecca as a successful pharmaceutical sales representativeNearly 20 years later their marriage has weathered some serious ups and downs When Mark lost his job it put a strain on their relationship and Rebecca found herself and in the throes of an opioid addiction—an easy thing to feed when you sell pharmaceuticals Mark had an affair and it doesn't take too long for his mistress to want than he is willing to give her—and that doesn't make her happy As she grows unhinged it threatens to topple Mark and Rebecca's marriage for good not to mention put them in dangerHad we really gotten so far away from each other that I'd stopped looking and Paul knew I had? Time had passed in the intangible way that it does when you aren't paying attention I didn't see the tether fraying to such a precarious degreeWhen Rebecca discovers Mark's plans for a new life plans that he hasn't shared with her she is at turns hurt nervous worried and angry As she becomes and dependent on a mixed cocktail of drugs and her supply dwindles she can't always think clearly but she starts to formulate plans of her own and figure out how to make her husband pay for his betrayal But there are other elements in play elements that neither of them can expectWhenever I read a thriller I'm automatically suspicious of everyone and everything A character comes on the scene I immediately craft ways they could be responsible So while that habit is a bit distracting at times it also takes a lot to surprise me EG Scott definitely kept me guessing in places and my suspicions weren't always correct There was one major twist that was surprising but at the same time I found myself exclaiming Really? Suspension of disbelief necessary The Woman Inside starts out being narrated by Paul and Rebecca shifting between the present and their past everything from the beginning of their relationship to crucial events a few days or weeks earlier but then Scott opens the narration up to several other characters I think I would have preferred seeing the story only through their eyes—I found one character fairly one dimensional and didn't really enjoy their perspectives even as they were revealing twistsEG Scott is the pseudonym for two writers They've got a lot of talent between them and I thought that having Rebecca narrate part of the story while she's in the midst of a drug addiction and dealing with cravings and withdrawals was a great plot device since she's an entirely different kind of unreliable narrator Even if I didn't love it The Woman Inside definitely kept me hooked and it kept me guessing so it did a pretty good jobThriller fans you might want to pick this one up Buddy read with AndrewSee all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoriablogspotcomCheck out my list of the best books I read in 2018 at You can follow me on Instagram at Find all of my reviews at finishing this yesterday my reaction was pretty much The Woman Inside is the latest in a long line of domestic thrillers This one features a pill addicted wife and a philandering husband I had a laundry list of issues with it To begin with the blurb tells too much so I’m thankful I didn’t read it before starting I would have been bummed that the first big “twist” was pretty much spoiled on the back cover Next the timehops The wibbly wobbly is used uite freuently in mysteriesthrillers and works okay for me about 50% of the time However in this book the time goes from waaaaaay before to immediately before to waaaaaay after to immediately after and everywhere in between with no indication exactly where you are until you read a few paragraphs and figure it out Third too many POVs It’s one thing to follow the husband and wife It’s another to follow them annnnnd a mistress annnnnnnnd a couple of police detectives Fourth now I’m a gal who likes an unreliable narrator as much if not than the next guy Buuuuuuuuuuut there’s a big difference between And being unconscious so no one knows WTF is happening at allThen there’s the twists and turns All I can say is YMMV but as a reader who picks up A LOT of thrillers attempting to heave everything but the kitchen sink at me doesn't mean diddly Nothing here was a surprise and I saw it all coming a mile and a half away There's also a big difference between reading a book that owns how much it is over the top and is simply bringing the reader along for a crazy ride and one who tries to take itself seriously while being OTT I could have saved myself a lot of time andgif hunting if curiosity would have got the better of me earlier and I had simply Googled these authors An article about them in EW disclosed Both authors are thriller junkies; they volleyed chapters back and forth each taking on a POV “Each chapter is in direct response to the one before and throwing potential twists at each other That really was fun” Wands says Adds Keenan “The aim to shock and surprise with each chapter was very motivating We got a little aggressive” Basically this was a game of trying to one up the other It didn’t work for me ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review What a wild thriller Full of deeply disturbed characters that bring new meaning to the words HOT MESSA book chocked full of disturbed people doing despicable things Adultery addiction dishonesty lying stealingstalking seriously what’s not to love? If you are someone who needs to like or relate to the characters in your books this probably isn’t the one for you BUT if you like to watch things fall apart and people self destruct this is thriller perfection It’s kind of like reality television it’s not like you think these people are upstanding citizens doing amazing things but they are entertaining people that are just a little south of crazy and you can’t wait to see what they do nextRebecca and Paul have been happily married or so they think for 20 years but now Paul is having an affair and Rebecca has a serious opioid addiction and that’s just the beginning these two truly deserve each other they are both extremely selfish self absorbed and manipulative however when Paul breaks things off with his mistress Sheila this couple may have met their match sheila is definitely the type of woman that will boil your rabbit Yikes just thinking about all the nonsense these characters got up to still makes me cringe a little but in a good way This book was just pure madnessAlong with these crazy characters came some pretty wild twists and turns The story is told from multiple perspectives and from the then and now my opinions of these characters changed at a rapid rate I had no idea who was telling the truth or if anyone was ever telling the truth The ending to the story was so fitting although somebody really got away withA crazy thriller characters you will love to hate and enough twist and turns to satisfy any thriller lover Absolutely recommend🎧🎧🎧 this audiobook was narrated by a full cast giving each character their

meHello teacher Big thanks to Dutton for my copy of this book Confusing and disjointed with too many POVs and time changes I really tried and ultimately DNFed it at a little over 50%I have no FOMO whatsoeverat all Wow just wow This book was so flipping wrong but right up my alley I loved this book My favorite kind of book is a dark twisted crazy thriller and this sure was one I am mad at myself for not reading this sooner Most of the focus is on Paul and Rebecca's 20 year marriage and how it started to unravel Rebecca is uite the interesting character She is a pharmaceutical representative that likes to sample her products Paul is a former home builder that is now a real estate agent These two are uite the couple actually a match made in heaven They had secrets from each other secrets with other people and secrets with each other I probably gasped a million times at the shocking things these two did The character development was amazing and they were the couple I loved to hateThis is such a twisted read that I can't say much without giving things away I never saw these twists coming and they were not just thrown in there to throw you off they were well executed and shocking Everyone involved in the book is not really likable but who cares it made them all the interesting I found myself holding my breath during the last chapter because it was just that crazyAll I can say is if you have not read this you need to I am hoping EG Scott has something in the works because I can't wait to read another by this great duo As a nurse I am praying that Euphellis is purely fictional Fingers crossedThank you so much to EG Scott Penguin Group and Netgalley for this fantastic book The main issue I had with this book was it felt like the authors EG Scott is a pseudonym concentrated so much on this twisted plot and forgot that there needs to be some compelling reason why the reader should be interested in what happens to the characters I'm all for unlikable characters in books but there has to be something about them that wants me to keep reading The first 100 pages or so were a chore to get though because the characters felt so over the top but eventually I at least became interested in finding out what was going to happenRebecca and Paul have been married for almost 20 years She's addicted to opiates and he has been having an affair When Rebecca discovers Paul is inching his way out the door with their life savings she develops a plan to get revenge This book is full of deeply disturbed individuals and takes one crazy turn after anotherWhile this became of a page turner in the second half my overall feeling is it's just an okay read I give the authors credit for trying to come up with a plot that tries to catch readers off guard but unfortunately the book suffered greatly from poorly developed characters I think this might be one of the rare instances that if the book were made into a movie the film would have the potential to be better I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway but was under no obligation to post a review All views expressed are my honest opinion An impossible to put down domestic thriller about secrets and revenge told from the perspectives of a husband and wife who are the most perfect and the most dangerous match for each other Rebecca didn't know love was possible until she met Paul a successful charismatic married man with a past as dark as her own Their pain drew them together with an irresistible magnetism; they sensed that they were each other's ideal and perhaps only match But twenty years later Paul and Rebecca are drowning as the damage and secrets that ignited their love begin to consume their marriage Paul is cheating on Rebecca and his affair gets messy fast His mistress is stalking them with growing audacity when Rebecca discovers Paul's elaborate plan to build a new life without her And though Rebecca is spiraling into an opiate addiction it doesn't stop her from coming up with a devious plot of her own and this one could end absolutely everything What follows is an unpredictable and stylish game of cat and mouse a shocking tale of unfaithfulness and unreliability that will keep you racing until the final twist and make you wonder how well you really know your spouse 5☆ Suspenseful Eerie Impossible to Put DownWow oh wow what a read The Woman Inside is a psychological thriller that at times made my hair stand on endBe prepared to be lured into a tangled web of deceit a story of betrayal secrets lies addiction adultery affairs it's dangerous thrilling and the juicy lil twists wow didn't see them comingThis is a compulsive story that will get under your skin you won't want to put it downThe story is told by Rebecca and her Husband PaulIt takes a lil while to get your head around the story as it flips from past and present but it's so worth it as you delve deeper into the turmoilI loved how Scott drip fed us juicy information and left us dangling until the next instalment loved it very effectiveJust from reading the prologue I was excited it doesn't give anything away but sets an eerie toneRebecca and Paul were madly in love married for 20 years but they each have deep dark secrets they are keeping from each otherEeek I can't say anything without the potential of giving something juicy awayRebecca is addicted to medication she did work in pharmaceutical industry but has just been sackedPaul's business is on the up again after a hard knock But when Rebecca goes to their joint account it's nearly all gone and ALL the transactions made are from PaulRebecca has to now figure out just why has their whole life savings gone and just what is he hiding Rebecca and Paul are really not likeable Characters but who doesn't love to hate characters and then find they have a love hate relationship with them They are literally the perfect characters for this storySelf absorbed selfish manipulate untrustworthy addictive personalities Rebecca's addiction made for an interesting spin as you never uiet knew how to take her You are well aware she's high but then eerie things happen then she doubts herself making the reader doubt her too brilliantly writtenTHE WOMAN INSIDE is a Taut Compulsive Atmospheric read that will get under your skinIt's a pacy read that sends you on a rollercoaster as you try to work out what's going onThere are plenty of juicy twists to keep you guessingEach chapter draws you in as you become further embroiled into their seedy and murky relationshipThe writing flows seamlessly between characters past and present I am still amazed that this was written by two Authors co writing It's flawless you would never knowI just want to say there are some sexual encounters which some readers may find difficult but it does add ambience to the story and isn't too explicitI would love to see The Woman Inside made into a thriller film it would be perfectIt has the right amount of suspense and tension to get viewers hookedThere are some amazing Thrillers already this year and I'm adding The Woman Inside at the top Would I recommend reading this intoxicating Thriller? without a doubtYesThank you to Trapeze Books for this copy which I reviewed honestly and voluntarilyMy Review is also on my Blog Website EG Scott is a psuedonym for two writers one in publishing and one is a screenwriter—and I am in love with both of them The Woman Inside is a fabulously flawed domestic thriller with original twists and turns while taking on real issues that our society faces today Rebecca and Paul appear to have the perfect life—with great careers and a beautiful home on Long Island where real estate is power and success Behind this flawless image is a flawed and broken relationship that is hidden in secret Rebecca has an opioid addiction that has taken a life of its own while Paul has lost his job and began an extramarital affair with one of their neighbors As Paul's affair begins to unravel he begins to realize that it's not as hot steamy and validating as he thought it would be As Paul begins to set things right Rebecca is ready to let go The duo begin to banter back and forth both emotionally and psychologically in order to gain the ultimate power—freedom This book was so unexpected folks I saw a lot of mixed reviews on here but I jumped at the chance to read this book because a the cover is gorgeous I am superficial judge all you want; b the setting takes place on Long Island where I grew up; c it seemed like it would be full of mystery and suspense The Woman Inside is than just a mysterydomestic thriller because it also shows the reality in the world we are living The United States's opioid epidemic is destroying families across the country and I have yet to read a book that reflects that issue Sure we have a ton of unreliable narrators who have drinking problems but that feat has been shown time and time again This time we have a bird's eye view on how opioids can hurt anyone rich poor no matter your color or gender In fact after reading this novel I begin researching about this on National Institute of Drug Abuse to learn This is the first time that a book has gotten me to venture that far into reality once I've finished reading it The Woman Inside not only grabbed my attention with their discussion about opioid abuse but it also had a lot of unexpected twists and turns This novel didn't throw random twists or red herrings out there for you to lose sight of what's happening but each clue was part of a bigger puzzle A puzzle that I effectively did not figure out and was shocked when it came to an end I do think that this book will polarize readers on two different sides—one side with devoted fans and another side of bitter enemies This book will be left up for discussion and I can't wait to be part of thatThank you Dutton Books for my advanced copy in exchange for an honest review The Woman Inside will be released January 22 2019 Infidelity and an opioid addiction sounds like a recipe for disaster If you date a married man end up marrying him and find out he's cheating on you are you really that surprised? What happens when the woman he's having an affair with turns out to be crazier than you? Is it the opioids that are driving you mad or are things really as fucked up as they appear? The first part of this book had me turning pages like a madwoman They got me hook line and pill popping Look the only characters with any redeeming ualities are the detectives and even they have their own issues though I did like their banter a lot From the various perspectives that we get we see that no one is in their right mind and things are just going to get crazier by the minuteThis is a highly addictive read Prepare to suspend some belief grab a hammer and pound away at this book I did think it went a teeny bit overboard at the end but it was also extremely fitting considering the level of insanity that this book contains Personally I love it Give me crazy Give me unpredictability Let me ride the insanity carouselSide note While I'm happy to see the trend of if you love Gone Girl or Girl on a Train you'll love this them going away I'm getting a bit exhausted of seeing an unputdownable or impossible to put down thriller in the tag lines for thrillers these days 🤷If you want to see just how crazy can get if you need a reason to not cheat on your partner not pop pills or to put your hammers away well get in on this Welcome to the world of Paul and Rebecca Buckle yourself in this crazy is a bumpy rideThank you Dutton for this copy
