Review: For Better and Worse
On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself.
Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?
I'd rate this somewhere between 4 to 4.5 stars.
My first mistake was starting this book around 10:30 at night, telling myself I'd only read the first few chapters till I fell asleep. The reality is that I didn't put the book down till around 1:30 AM and thought to myself, "Wow."
My second mistake was underestimating what a total badass Nat is/was, at first judging her based on the person she decided to marry. I figured out what Will was up to almost immediately, and disliked him immensely since the beginning. Was it wrong of me to hope that in the end she'd somehow (view spoiler) The ending did surprise me and I was pleasantly surprised at what else she was planning on doing.
This was an easy read despite the topic. It was easy to follow and easy to get consumed by, which I wholeheartedly did.
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
