My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The best revenge is not to be like your enemy.
A small-town girl Marlena learned a very valid life lesson early in life – in order to have a good life one has to work hard towards their goals. And Marlena has a very specific goal. In order to achieve it, she follows the steps of a very close friend she admires the most. Marlena starts her carrier at a modeling agency, where she meets tall, dark and handsome Mr. Durst. A few years later, the couple reconnects in Germany, and soon after tied the knot.
Now, Marlena is living a Cinderella life, but only a few people are aware of a rough price she has to pay to carry the Durst name. Old saying states – it takes two to tango… and it would take a while for Michael Durst to realize that he is not the one leading the dance.
The novel is divided into three parts. The first two parts were phenomenal pageturners, however, the final part has disappointed me. I was expecting a much stronger finale. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the storyline. Thank you NetGalley and Midnight Ink publishers for an advanced free copy of the novel.
