Marissa: Loved the book

Titel_Blue: The plot remembers me of the classic The Pledge by Friedrich Durrenmatt, except here we have more girls murdered, but it will be difficult to beat the original. Regarding the style, it seems to be a bit too wordy.

Diana G. Lim: Love everything about this book. How they met, how domineering the male lead (who is also the boss), how brave the female lead is to venture & follow her dream, how the explosive the chemistry that was always around both of them...
