    Me, rollerblading into my therapists office with sunglasses and a piña colada and dropping this book on the desk with a resounding thud:  Karen, we have much to talk about.Why read Verity when you can just pull out a Ouija board and summon a demon? I'm sure itll have the same effect. I finished this book feeling completely sapped of life, as if I've been bleeding freely for the past few hours instead of simply reading. I wish I could just shake...

    "Find what you love and let it kill you." -Charles BukowskiWoah, this was fuuuucked up. It should really come with a warning: do not start reading this at night if you want to sleep.For two reasons, actually. One, it is so compulsively readable that it's almost impossible to put it down until you've finished it. And two, it is seriously creepy and disturbing. Warnings for depictions of child abuse and some graphic violence.Perhaps this doesn't ne...

    Bold. Unrelenting. All-consuming. Creepy. Unputdownable.What Ive come to appreciate most about Colleen Hoovers workwhether its an emotionally charged love story or in this case, her first go at suspenseis her penchant for pushing boundaries. For telling the unexpected story. Its got bad things in it. Bad words, bad people, bad scenes.Hoover preempted Veritys release with a warning of sortsalthough facetious and comical in delivery, its somethin...

    I've pulled up this review and tried to make the words come for a couple of days now, but every time I try to write the words all that comes to mind is WTF Colleen?! Obviously we were warned going in that this one would but much different than her other novels, but she didn't tell us that it would be so compulsive and I wouldn't be able to live my life while reading it. How dare she?? But seriously, this book was so delicious in a seriously twist...

    I LOVED THIS BOOK. Just posted my full booktalk on youtube (polandbananasbooks). I BLEW THROUGH IT IN TWO DAYS COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. It's way up at the top of my coho favorites =)
  • Christy
    Have you ever finished a book and thought WTF did I just read? Verity is one of those books that will do that to you. Word to the wise for CoHo fans: this is not your typical book from Colleen Hoover. Its amazingly written and its a completely captivating read, but its so different from anything shes ever put out before. Some families are lucky enough to never experience a single tragedy. But then there are those families that seem to have trage...

    ** UNPOPULAR OPINIONThis is the second novel that I've read by the author.  I'm not really familiar with her writing or style, but I was seeing many 4-5 star ratings on this book and it was a "thriller" so that was enough to push me to give it a try. There are many, many high reviews for the book so I'm not here to dissuade anyone from reading it. It just wasn't a good fit for me. I read hundreds of thriller/mysteries and love the genre.I've r...

    🎉 FIVE MIND BLOWING STARS!🎉This one is a killer! So dark and disturbing. I was not expecting to love this one so much. Colleen Hoover writes romance books. This one is a thriller. I have seen authors go from romance to romantic suspense, but never have I seen an author go from Romance to a dark and disturbing crazy thriller. She knocked this one out of the ball park. This one just blew my mind. I could not put this book down. I read it whil...

    *Laughs hysterically* What?!Three hours later and Im still laughing and head-shaking at the mindfuck that was this story.... *Laughs hysterically* What?!Three hours later and I’m still laughing and head-shaking at the mindfuck that was this story....
  • Dita
    As far as mindf*cks go, Colleen Hoover is a really great lay.FIVE STARS.
  • Dana Ilie
    This book was disturbing in a way that is hard to put in words. Verity is pitched as a thriller and a romantic suspense book. Well, allow me to be as candid as I can: "Verity is a mind-fuck". Is Disturbing. Twisted. Creepy. It will have you questioning things. Brutal. Haunting.There is no question, the story is hypnotizing. ENGROSSING even if alarmingly disconcerting. And the cherry on top? The ending. That probably held the most savage plot twis...

    4.5 starsA manipulative mind f*ck that will keep you guessing!Verity is a psychological thriller in which the lines between fiction and reality blur together creating an illusion of truth. A struggling author is offered a lucrative deal: continue writing the popular a bestselling series, get out of debt and be in the presence of a sexy man. SOunds too good to be true? Lowen Ashleigh must find out for herself. She heads to Vermont and begins her ...

    Brilliant author.Brillianty written.Brilliant idea.Except...I didn't like it.I didn't like the heroine. Couldn't relate to her.I didn't the hero. I didn't like the story. Implausible and kind of revolting.I normally like fucked up, unpredictable stories. The darker and more twisted the better. This one didn't resonate with me.Sorry.And watch out for triggers.

    Verity left me completely speechless, unsettled and unabashedly begging CoHo to write more thrillers!!!I found this story creepy, dark, addictive and absolutely unputdownable. Hoover has quite an imagination and as an avid thriller reader I was immediately drawn into the creepy world she created within the Crawford's home. "My mother used to say that houses have a soul, and if that's true, the soul of Verity Carwford's house is as dark as they c...
  • jessica
    want to know whats even more shocking than this dark and twisted book?? its the fact that one of the most suspenseful stories i have ever read is written by my fave romance author! like, how in the world does that happen!?! my mind is absolutely usually wary of when authors try to branch out beyond their known genre of writing. i respect it, but sometimes it doesnt work out for the best. luckily, CoHo totally smashed it with this! i am b...

    C.R.A.Z.Y. To! The! Hilt!CoHo has one vivid imagination, and I for one, am glad she shared this way out there creative plot line with the rest of us.Let me tell you there were so many What the what? moments, I had to keep reminding myself I wasnt reading a Stephen King or Greer Hendricks novel. I really wouldnt put this in the romance category, albeit plenty of sex scenes are a plenty. It is totally more af a psychological thriller. Now you might...

    Ugh what the fuck just happened? 😟😟😟 That end!!! I can't believe it... OMG I need more, this book can't end like that... I still have questions... 😫😫😫

    What did I just read? 😲My brain is still trying to process this book.I just can't believe it. Nope.
  • Susanne Strong
    3.85 Stars* (rounded up)Well Darn It! This novel didnt quite live up to the Hype. Verity is a novel that Ive seen crazy review after crazy review for and after a while, the hype got to both me and my book buddy, such that we decided to make it our New Years read. Admittedly, this book is, in fact, Whack (and entertaining at that) - however, I expected the ending to blow me away but after all the insane reviews I read, it was just kind of like wah...
  • K.A. Tucker
    I haven't had a visceral reaction like this to a book in years. This was a very different style for Colleen Hoover and I devoured it last night (unplanned. I was exhausted and only planned on reading a chapter or two.) It was hard to read at times and I did not see the ending coming, which is rare for me. But, in typical Hoover style, she gives you a security blanket at the end, to help mend your heart. If you read thrillers, you should read this...
  • Felicia
    An Ode To Colleen HooverHoover is in a category all her own when it comes to modern romance with a twist. You see, in case you've never indulged in a Hoover novel, she always has a "hook" (if you're a musician or music lover you'll know exactly what I mean). At some point in most of her novels you will inevitably sit up and go "wooooahhh what in the actual fuck just happened?".She can do it with just one sentence, like with the book Hopeless. The...

    What is an acceptable truth?My truth, your truth, and everything in between......Colleen Hoover hits the ground running in Verity with the sudden bolt of a gruesome accident. Lowe Ashleigh, a mediocre writer treading water in the publishing world, is on her way to a meeting with her editor. She witnesses the aftermath of a pedestrian on the wrong side of the speeding vehicle equation. A handsome stranger on the street comes to her rescue. This in...

    What (and I cannot stress this enough) the fuck. I flew through this book in one sitting, it was that good!Wow
  • sue
    Let me confess right here and now Ive been a Colleen Hoover virgin. Yes I have heard of this author, yes I own her first series, but, I have never taken the plunge to read the series I own. Why not? I really havent a clue, maybe because I thought the romance side was lovey dovey and Im into thrillers.Why have I explained all that!Well, after this book its definitely going to change. Yes Im aware that she took a huge dive writing this and producin...
  • Jennifer Kyle
    5 Stars Colleen Hoover delivers a wonderful romance disturbing thriller that will haunt you well after you finish. How did the author of Slammed have this type of storytelling within? Colleen proved she can write pretty much anything!! PS I would love for her to try her hand at a biker story with her spin whether dark or romance.
  • bookswithpaulette
    From the first sentence I was hooked. This book is so dark, wicked and shockingly disturbing. I dont want to say too much as I dont want to spoil it, this book isnt your usual psychological Thriller, there are some scenes in the book I had to read 2 or 3 times because I couldnt believe that is what was written on the page, its chilling and disturbing in a delicious way.Our protagonist Lowen is an unknown writer in debt, she is offered a dream job...
