I looked forward to reading this book for some time but when I actually sat down to read it, I was disappointed. I could not get into it. Usually within the first 50 pages of a book there is a hook to get the reader interested and this one did not have it for me. I read the first 100 pages and gave up.

Jonna, aka "Montene" plays a dangerous game:
Convinced her husband of eight months is cheating on her, she cries her pain out into the internet. Her blog is her way to cry out all her suspicions, fears and private dreams.
Once again convinced Rush, her husband, is cheating her with his former flame she decides to meet Dominic. He online kind and understanding friend.
Self-doubting her decision she meets him, a man looking like just cut out of a catalogue.

Unfortunately he's emerging as not so pleasant as time goes by. Invading her privacy, spying on her she tells him to leave her alone but "Dominic", so his online name, doesn't take "no" for an answer. So Jonna lives in fear all the while comforted by her best friend Beth, who still thinks what Dominic's doing is so romantic.

A death later it comes to a point where Jonna thinks Rush is planning to kill her, Rush thinks Jonna is planning to kill him, Dominic wants Jonna one way or the other all the while someone else is having a huge plan with all of them.


Out of the romantic suspense genre, full of twist and turns this book kept me reading. It wasn't so much fr the suspense which kept me intrigued but for Jonna's sweet character. Only 26 she's full of self-doubt if the man who married her really loves her or if the decision to become husband and wife was rushed. They both, each of them for their own reasons, haven't really opened up and connected to each other like husband and wife are supposed to.

The book has a warning for all those people trying to find love over the machine. It tells a story about how easy it is to meet the wrong person that just might be a nightmare hardly to wake up from.
