Book Summary from Amazon:

Paige Dawson: the mother of a murdered child and wife to a dead man.
She has nothing left to live for… until she finds her husband’s handgun hidden in their house.
Why did Ryan need a gun? What did he know about their daughter’s death?

Desperate for the truth, Paige begins to unearth her husband’s secrets.
But she has no idea who she is up against, or that her life isn’t hers to gamble – she belongs to me.

From the bestselling author of Anything for Her, Jack Jordan’s My Girl is the new chilling thriller that you won’t want to miss.

My Review:

When I first started reading My Girl and saw how Paige acts I thought, “Oh great, another Rachel type character from Girl on a Train: An unlikeable alcoholic with memory problems.” She is also a pill addict and resorts to an unmentionable way to get those pills. You can understand why she has these issues: Her daughter was murdered ten years earlier and her husband just killed himself. That’s enough to give anybody issues.

I was determined to see where the book was going to go despite the issues I had with Paige. And then… I get to the halfway mark of the book….. And MAJOR TWIST!!!

I can’t go into many details without revealing the twist. I would have never  thought the book was going to go in the direction that it did take. It was brilliant! It is also graphic and very disturbing. This book will not be for everyone. **If you have issues with torture and sexual assault you may want to stay away from this novel. It was hard to read. But the book is worth it. I don’t give 5 star reviews out much, but it was well earned with My Girl. Well done Jack Jordan!!!

**I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
