** spoiler alert ** The ending was where the story begun for me (somewhere around 165 or so). If it didn't get heated soon, I'd would have skimmed through to finish with 'okay read'. Some parts of the book was hard to believe a black woman like Sheree would not muster the strength to leave sooner or cuss this man out and accept being secretive while he's prowling with Kelly (blonde). Sheree easily cusses with her sister, Coach Kevin, and her diary/journal about Matthew but waited until the end to share what she wanted to do--all talk and no action. If the chapters would have started from the ending chapters and add more depth to the relationship; how she met Matthew, gave birth to his child, and married a couple months later (which you find out these tidbits at the ending chapters). *This is one reason as an author myself, I do so many revisions and rewrites. Move chapters. Delete. Start over, etc. The concept of the storyline was intriguing but some parts for me was unbelievable if the sista snapped with others and her journal versus with who was causing her hurt, disappoints, and loneliness. Not sure why a woman would marry someone who kept them locked in the house and not even know the neighbors without early signs of abuse to show his dominance or controlling power. This would have highlighted the story more where the reader can see he had some kind-of-control over her to keep her sheltered but earlier readings didn't show that Sheree was as weak as she acted in the beginning and middle chapters. Her investigation was only going to the job and family's house, which she should have done before marrying this man for example--at least family regardless of Matt's explanation of why she couldn't. This felt like an arraignment than a marriage. Is there a sequel since it ended abruptly. 2.5/3 stars.
