A whirlwind romance opposed by her mother, a marriage made in heaven, and a move across the country. Was the move part of Ryan’s plan to have no family around for Cass?
A second chance with a man that she never dreamed would come into her life after her husband died was what Cass needed, and Ryan fit the bill.
Everything was perfect wasn't it? A perfect marriage, three perfect kids, and a loving relationship until..…
The Connor family looked perfect on the outside, but the Connors were not perfect at all. Ryan and Cass started out as the dream couple until Ryan showed his true colors of physical as well as psychological abuse. When Cass would confront him with things that happened, he would turn it around and make her feel as if she were the guilty party.
Ryan went from the perfect loving husband and father to an abusive monster that Cass put up with and even denied.
POISON had good writing that pulled you in, but it seemed to drag on and brought up one crazy situation after another.
Domestic abuse was the main theme of POISON and very upsetting, but not as upsetting as some domestic thrillers. It definitely is frightening how often domestic abuse occurs and how many books have this as a theme.
Cass made some very stupid decisions that put herself and her children in danger when she knew she should have just left. It was pretty tense at those moments.
POISON was not a bad read, and the ending was unexpected, but it could have been shortened.
It definitely is a psychological thriller and makes you wonder who you can truly trust.
I would not recommend reading this book if you have been in a similar situation.
If you like intense situations, you will enjoy POISON.
I read it very quickly because I was nervous about what would happen. 4/5
