- "I don't give many books 5 stars. This one caught my interest and held it throughout. I was several chapters into it and I still didn't know what it was going to be about or where it was going. I just knew the story had me and I didn't want to quit. The author stuck to the story without out getting "side-tracked." Basic story set in college with a brother and sister at the same school. Her roommate ends up being her brothers girlfriend and they both end up regretting it. She calculating, manipulating, and pure trouble." - Kate Moore
- "This truly was a haunting tale of friendship and loyalty and all of the things that can go wrong in between. I loved the relationship between Katherine and Ben! Reading about a brother and sister being so incredibly close was refreshing and sweet. Their relationship was strong until Katherine's roommate in college, Emma, entered the picture. Ashley did a phenomenal job of creating the character of Emma. She was sweet, obsessive, scary, and revengeful all wrapped up in a pretty package. I went in thinking this would be another college love story, but I couldn't have been more wrong.[...]" - Angela McLaurin
- "Very good book!!! It is now 4:30a.m. as I finish this book which should give you a clue as to just how good it is!! I kept trying to finish it tomorrow but the plot is twisty and just plain hard to put down." - M. Long
- "Well written and moves along at a good pace, keeping my interest. Great picture of the life of a family when a brother and sister go off to college together and the challenges they experience both separately and together. Also illustrates how a family copes with tragedy and how it affects them.
I have never read anything by this author, but would definitely read another of her novels. You won't be disappointed with this book!" - Cheryl F. Davis
