Book Review: Because You’re Mine by Rea Frey

Rea Frey is AMAZING. I read her first book (Not Her Daughter) through NetGalley and when I was contacted by her publisher about the second, jumped at the chance. Frey has a marvelous ability to develop characters that leap off the page (for good and ill) and to throw out-of-nowhere twists in when you absolutely least expect them. She has a brilliant writing style that is very engaging and compelling, with just enough twists, turns, and teasers to keep you guessing – and flipping pages furiously while you do.

The reveal in (literally) the last pages can be a dangerous plot forma – it backfires more often than it works, in my opinion, because most authors use it as a last-ditch attempt to save a faltering piece of plot. Not so AT ALL here – Frey works it to maximum advantage, using it not to tie up loose ends but to shatter a lot of what the reader thought based on the entirety of the story. In masterful hands, such a trick is not only fabulous to read but evidence of a marvelous ability to plot and plan that makes everything read up to that point feel like a game of cat and mouse with you, the reader, left hunting for the cheese…

I’d read Frey’s grocery list at this point – she’s that good. If you aren’t familiar with her work, you should be! Because You’re Mine releases in the U.S. on August 6, 2019.
