Behind Closed Doors
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. Sometimes, the perfect marriage is the perfect lie.

A fast paced psychological thriller with plenty of twists and turns that kept me wanting more. There are trigger warnings in this book for domestic abuse and animal cruelty so not for anyone sensitive to these topics. 3 ⭐️

10-28-21: My 108th finished book of 2021! This one really unnerved me. Jack Angel seems like the perfect man to Grace until he isn‘t. That‘s all I can say without giving anything away. Tense and terrifying this one will stay with me for awhile. ⭐️⭐️⭐️👍🏼📖#️⃣1️⃣0️⃣8️⃣

I finished this the other day and it really only took me 3 "sittings". We can all guess the premise, that's obvious enough but I think there were a few twists that kept it intriguing and also added a *more* disturbing air to it.

I know this one is a fan favorite but it was just okay for me. I feel like the author missed really hard with the 'excited by violence' part. Rarely is violence not associated with sexual arousal or gratification. She seemed uncomfortable writing about this aspect & it's unbelievable that he just held people captive to 'scare' them. There were just a lot of elements that required me to suspend reality.
I'm glad I held off ordering The Therapist.

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS was quite intense and had such an extremely scary, chilling plot that you won't be able to read it except in broad daylight.

Amazing book! I was not able to put it down, the way it is written and the way the story catches up on itself is amazing! I‘ve seen some people complain that the book is badly written or has a bad story, and maybe for someone who have read a lot of books it might come across like that. but for me, someone who hasn‘t read a lot of books thinks it‘s absolutely heartbreaking, well written, good attention catcher and overall a good book!

What a great audiobook!! This is one of those that made WANT to find more things to do around the house so I could keep listening to it. So crazy..I wanted to know how this was going to end. I could not imagine being in the position Grace was in. A suspenseful read (or listen) - definitely recommend.

The most horrifying thing about this story is its simplicity. How easy it is to take control over someone‘s life in its entirety and have no one suspect a thing. Fear for a loved one‘s safety is a powerful motive to acquiesce and the author portrays this brilliantly. There were times when I found myself holding my breath, waiting for the next blow to fall. It is a totally engrossing and evocative read.

Book club book. At first I though, another psychological thriller (insert eye roll,) but then I was pleasantly surprised at how it capture my attention! I do often wonder about women who are in these situations and this makes me grateful for my husband and the hard work he puts in to give us a good life.

1. When I was in college, I was on the elevator and our building ghost/spirit took over and made me go up and down multiple times, before letting me off on my floor.
2. I am grateful for my students and that so far we get to see each other face to face in the building.

It was difficult to chose things that describe me because I am so many things. Even now I am thinking of other things I could have added.

I love scary things & scary characters...I love a good villain & I tend to fall in love with them more so than the hero. I love every single Riley Sager book, but that one is my favorite. I love all vampires, but Eric is one of my favorites! I love everything Halloween, so sky is the limit.

“The door opens and he stands in the doorway, my handsome, psychopathic husband.”

I guess it‘s strange that I really enjoyed this book because I lived it. I read this not long after a divorced my psychopathic ex husband. There are days that I get lonely, but then I remember there‘s ALWAYS worse things than being alone. *** lots of trigger warnings
