"I was good at spewing bullshit. It's why I became a writer." ~ pg. 143
Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer until she gets the job offer of a lifetime. Husband of bestselling author, Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining three books of a highly successful series. Verity is injured and unable to finish. The job offer comes at exactly the right time financially. With an eviction notice crumbled in her hands and an invite to stay at Verity's home while doing research, Lowen jumps head first into the job.
She sorts through years of notes, materials, and reads the existing books in the series. What her search uncovers is a draft of an autobiography that doesn't seem intended for the public. Lowen reads through the bone-chilling pages and discovers why Verity is really incapable of finishing her own work. Lowen hides the manuscript from Jeremy Crawford, hoping to not devastate the already grieving husband and father. But her feelings for Jeremy grow. Selfishly, Lowen thinks if Jeremy reads his wife's words, he will have no choice but to leave his injured wife and turn into her waiting arms.
It is the end of the year and I am not going to bore you with persuasive words to read Verity. I'm just going to say that it is a risk for authors to step out of their comfort zone and write in a different genre. They risk losing fans, humiliating themselves, or worse, being seen as a joke. Colleen Hoover took that risk. She did the damn thang! She was on some vintage V.C. Andrews type of shit with Verity and I loved every word of it!
