His story is a twisted web of coercion and lies.
And the tragedy is too perfect to be real.
Will Meadow discover all of Vincent’s secrets while she fights to protect her own?

Lily White has done it again!
Wishing Well sucked in me from the start, frustrated the h--- out of me numerous times (for reasons we’ll kind of address *BSEG*) gave me the FEELS (Yeah, didn’t necessarily expect that either) and left me with a weird mix of ultimate satisfaction with THAT ending while in my head I was thinking “But, but…” Simply put, the mind $%^# was real and I absolutely adored it!
Vincent is an enigma, complex and yet simple, and that made him absolutely fascinating. The range of feels I had for this man were crazy. I was wary of him, hated him, hurt for him and in a strange way loved him. Meadow is tenacious and broken, but determined to gain some closure for herself and her twin. I loved her strength and the empathy I had for her as she learned of all that happened to her sister knew no bounds. The battle of wills these two engage in was as sexually charged as it was emotionally charge and reminded me of a fencing match where the opponents parried back and forth, teasing out the weak spot and then going in for the winning strike when the other least expected it.
As for the story. I was hooked, not gonna lie, but there were moments in the beginning where things moved so slow, it was excruciating and I had to put the book down. Not because I was frustrated as all get out, at least not totally, but because if I didn’t I would skip ahead (even to the end ~ I know bad reader/reviewer *slaps own hand*) and this is NOT a book you want to do that with because you will miss something. But then that point came where I didn’t want to put it down, in fact I got kinda pissy when I had no choice but to stop reading, and what you end up with is a story that is so much more than the sum of its parts and has you craving more.
I know, another vague, non spoilery and probably verbal vomit-y review, but it is necessary because (queue the groans) you HAVE to go into this book as blind as possible. As it is, I probably said too much, but it is what it is. This really was a well written and well balanced read. You get a little romance, a little smexy, some humor, and a good dose of heart even as your anticipating what will be coming next from the various players in this twisted tale. And that ending? Despite my inner...turmoil...it is a fitting end.

Loved it!! Highly recommend!!
“I closed my eyes and realized that I was becoming addicted to the savage beast of a man who had trusted me enough to call me his friend.”
Meadow Graham has just three days to interview death row inmate Vincent Mercier; a powerful and charismatic man responsible for the gruesome death of her sister. Meadow is determined to discover the truth at any cost. “You should know by now that I am a man that keeps his promises.” “Quid pro quo, Vincent?” “Yes, Meadow, quid pro quo.” Back and forth the spider and the fly banter, but some questions are best left unanswered, and some truths are better left unknown. As tragic as this story begins, the ending is even so much more. As the pages were turning, I found myself rooting for the monster at the end of this book…
Lily White is a new to me author, and I was absolutely blown away by this story! BLOWN AWAY! This story captivated me from page one! Highly recommend!
Definitely a page turner!
This is not my usual type of books to read, but it quickly sucked me into it. I loved how you got to know the story from point of view of multiple people. It truly got me thinking of each and every detail from each person. I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to read a book outside of their normal book style.
There were many twists and turns. It does not leave you hanging in the end.
