Wishing Well by Lily White is an amazing epic mindfuck. I absolutely FLOVED it! It is a psychological, suspenseful thriller. A dark, twisted romance that only author Lily White could write. Totally blew me away.
I loved all the characters and how they interacted. Vincent is sexy, in control, dominant and perfectly alpha. He has secrets, secrets that he is willing to share, but for a price. He is cunning and manipulative. Meadow is smart, beautiful and seeking answers only Vincent can give, but she has secrets of her own. A fantastic battle of wills. A race to see who can outsmart the other before their time is up. My anxiety level as I read was off the charts. It is a crazy roller coaster ride filled with highs and lows, secrets and lies.
Wishing Well had me at the edge of my seat. It is captivating, intriguing, and compelling. I could not put it down. It has undertones reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast but as only Lily White could tell it.
The pacing is perfect. The story unfolds in the present with flashbacks to the past in alternating POV, which I love because it allows me to delve inside the minds of both our main characters. It also gives me insight into the characters and their motivation. I become privy to information the other characters may not know yet. Author Lily White had me coming up with theories like crazy, and proving me wrong time and time again. I love when that happens. You think you know, but you don’t, and when you do, mind blown. Timing is everything has never been truer. Highly recommend. MUST read. One of the best books I’ve read in a while.
