Two years ago, Billie Tarrow’s husband left her for another woman. Shamed and divorced, Billie retreated to her family home in Port Townsend, far from her old life in New York. After a near-death encounter, Billie decides to return to the city that took everything from her.
But sometimes in the midst of heartache, hope suffocates the pain.
Satcher Gable has carried a torch for Billie for ten years. When she suddenly returns to New York a single woman, he can’t believe his good fortune. But convincing her to walk away from her heartache is proving more difficult than Satcher anticipated. A changed woman, Billie’s only goal is revenge.
I’m torn on this one. This is my first Tarryn Fisher book. I will admit I couldn’t put the book down because I kept hoping Billie would wake up.
I love Satcher to a point. Wendy/Billie less so. Woods and Pearl, not at all. The other many characters in the book, nope.
Billie is divorced but is coming back to NYC. Her ex-husband, Woods still lives there with his new fiancee – Pearl. Woods, fiancee, and Woods bestie, Satcher still work at the blog that Billie and Woods co-created. Satcher wants Billie back in every way, shape, and form. He makes her a boss at the blog, he now owns. Billie is back for revenge over Woods and Pearl. Only it goes a little too well and things get dicey.
Billie and Satcher start a relationship. Only to find out that Satcher is going to be a father. The mother, oh a friend of Billie’s. WTF?
Then Billie gets her revenge on Woods. Only to realize she’s made a HUGE mistake.
It just spirals out of control. I get that people don’t always see what is right in front of them, but Billie had blinders on so big that she had tunnel vision for Woods. I wanted to scream, he’s your past for a reason, move the F*ck on!
The drama between Pearl, Woods, and Billie. I secretly was hoping for more. Pearl just seemed annoying and like a pesky gnat. Woods was a wishy-washy baby. He was getting the attention he needed from Billie, so he was going to drop Pearl. Ten bucks says that if Pearl would have upped her game, he wouldn’t have looked twice at Billie. He just wanted the attention.
Satcher – wasn’t the Alpha I wanter. He sat back and left Billie come to him. Ok, cool. Yet in the end, he didn’t make her beg, he didn’t make her anything, he just left her waltz right in. WTF?! How is he NOT hurt? I guess playing the second fiddle is better than no fiddle when it comes to Billie.
I did enjoy that Billie figured herself out. Sad that it took so long. I hoped for more Billie and Satcher time. That is what I enjoyed. I was indifferent to this book, I liked it, yet there were some things about it, that I didn’t care for. If you have Kindle Unlimited give it a try.
