MINE – J.L. Butler (Releasing June 26th, 2018)
So exciting to hear that the movie rights have been optioned to Sony. I really hope to see this one on the big screen – would love to see who would be cast.
My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!
Who doesn’t love a guilty pleasure thriller read? Despite being on the larger side, as far as thrillers go, this one is a surprisingly fast read. The short chapters are always helpful and definitely keeps the pacing just right. That prologue! Definitely sucked me in from the start.
Francine Day is a divorce lawyer that has worked hard to build her career in a male dominated profession. She’s so close to joining that legal elite that she is determined to take on whatever cases they throw her way. Her newest case has her working with Martin Joy. He’s a successful businessman and she can’t ignore the irresistible draw between them.
She quickly finds herself in a passionate affair that goes against all she’s worked so hard for. Francine is becoming obsessed with Martin’s relationship with his soon-to-be ex-wife. When Donna goes missing all eyes are on Martin, who was the last person to see her alive.
When Francine wakes up with blood all over her and no memory of the night before, she desperately tries to figure out what really happened. Is she involved in Donna’s disappearance? Why can’t she remember that night? So many questions and she needs to find the answers before her career is in jeopardy, but her obsession and draw to Martin is so strong.
This is one of those thrillers that perfectly captures that obsession and how it can so easily control a person. It’s like having blinders on and nothing else seems to matter. This definitely has it’s steamy moments, which is always a fun little addition to the thriller genre because it’s never over the top.
If you want a good legal thriller mixed in with some gripping psychological suspense, then this is the next one for you!
