Behind Closed Doors - B A Paris

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.

You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.

Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

What did I think?

I had noticed quite a few tweets about Behind Closed Doors so I hot-footed it over to NetGalley to pick up a copy for myself.  I completely agree with all my fellow bloggers, this book really is as good as they say.  I had to force myself to put it down on a night time or I would have read it from cover to cover in one sitting.

It was such a clever idea to start with Jack and Grace hosting a dinner party.  On first appearances they seem to be the perfect couple and very much in love.  It is only when the dinner party ends that the masks are dropped and we realise how very wrong their relationship is.  I almost felt chilled to the bone at times when the details of Jack and Grace’s real life were revealed.

This was so fast paced as it flipped between past and present; I couldn’t read it fast enough.  I wanted to know every single detail as quickly as possible and I feel like I really gave my eyes a good workout on this one.  I found myself questioning everything that happened and there were plenty of shocks and surprises in store to keep me engaged and entertained.  I loved the characters, I loved the story, I loved the whole book and I can't wait to see what comes next from the pen of B A Paris.

I don’t want to give away one single detail that will spoil the enjoyment for another reader – it simply has to be read.  It's an absolutely gripping and outstanding debut - don’t miss it!

I received this e-book from the publisher, Harlequin, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
