Helena is a career woman with no job and a mother without a baby. She blames Ashley for destroying her life. But is what happened really Ashley’s fault?
When Helena hires Ashley to work for her, she’s startled but impressed by her fierce ambition. They form a dream team and Helena is proud – maybe this is the protégée she’s always wanted to have. But soon Helena realizes that nothing will stand in the way of Ashley’s drive to get to the top. And when Helena becomes pregnant, everything she has worked so hard for is suddenly threatened, with devastating consequences…
One of my pet peeves in books is when it says on the cover that there’s going to be a twist you’ll never see coming. When this is said you’re expecting a twist and you’re expecting something amazing and it’s also not going to be unexpected if it says that on the cover. For me, the twist is usually a let down when it’s expected. That’s definitely what happened with this book. Firstly, I found it difficult to get into. There wasn’t much happening at the start- we saw a lot of Helena in the present but it was all very abstract and it’s hard to get into something when you’re not sure what the story is going to be. It got a bit more exciting when we saw Helena’s past. The twist at the end was definitely something I saw coming to an extent. Certain elements I didn’t guess exactly but I had the gist. Having said that, it was a good read and the characters were interesting. It just wasn’t the best book I’ve read and it’s probably one I won’t remember much about in a few weeks time.
