Susanne’s Review:

Extremely Weak Women.

Anger, Betrayal, and Idiocy.

Fake “Lifelong” Female Friends who backstab each other day in, day out

Graphic Nasty Raunchy Trashy Sex. 

Color me sick. To be perfectly frank, absolutely revolted. In case you didn’t get it, this book was not for me.  

The main reason is this: I abhor books where authors portray women as weak. My favorite books are those with strong women and this book was the exact opposite of that. If you can get past that and enjoy the raunchy, silly storyline, you might enjoy this for the soap opera this was but I for one was not a fan. 

This was a buddy read with Kaceey, who enjoyed this one more than I did.

Thanks to Berkley Publishing via Edelweiss for the arc

Kaceey’s Review:

Three best friends and one new sexy, single man. Oh my! If you have considerable doubts about this threesome gleefully strolling their way to a happy ending… you’d be right!🤣. The ultimate consequences? Well, simply put they could be deadly!☠️

I love a good neighborhood book! But come on, these women were full-tilt out of control! Not exactly sure how they manage to define themselves as friends. The last people I would ever rely on to have MY back!

Once again my liver has taken a serious beating and I’ve sworn off alcohol (not really😉) This is what always happens after reading one of May Cobb’s books! Wow! Can these women drink!🤦🏻‍♀️

This was a fun, though a bit OTT romp. The ending went in a direction I wasn’t expecting, and actually didn’t sit very well with me. For that I subtracted a star. (Just my opinion folks).

I wasn’t as fond of this latest release from May Cobb as much as her previous, The Hunting Wives. But if you’re looking for a fun mystery that will have you shaking your head and taking a harder look at your own drinking habits…then this will be a great fit! Happy reading’🥂🍾

A buddy read with Susanne that left us on different sides of the neighborhood fence.

Thank you to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing.

  1. Looks like you have been flying through many books 😊 I haven’t read any books by this author yet. Your picture looks fun so a drink or two is a must!
