Behind Closed Doors Reviews
Behind Closed Doors turned out to be a decent debut that did its job entertaining me and building some tension, but it didn’t keep me up late at night reading or anything kin to that. B.A. Paris’ debut novel is the tale of Grace Angel (yep, quite the name, I know). She meets her McDreamy—a George Clooney look-alike—after years of potential husbands fleeing at the idea of having to care for her sister, Millie, who has Down Syndrome. Not only does Jack Angel not mind this arrangement, but he’s als ...more
Behind Closed Doors will capture your mind and keep your heart prisoner until the very last page!
I finished Behind Closed Doors about half an hour ago, and my heart still feels like it’s racing, probably not helped by me forgetting to breathe throughout the majority of the book. I found myself wishing I could read faster, just so I had a chance to catch my breath. Make sure you read this with a glass of wine or a box of chocolates, as they may save your life by distracting you from the story lon ...more

Whew! This was certainly one creepy and screwed up story. I expected it to be really messed up, but not in quite the way that it was. A pervasive sense of uneasiness stayed with me the entire time that I was reading this book. Creepy...Very creepy.
The book opens with a dinner party at Jack and Grace's home. Jack is a successful attorney, well-known for advocating for battered women. Grace is the soft-spoken, elegant wife. Everything about th ...more
Jack and Grace Angel seem like the perfect couple. They give the best receptions, but this marital bliss is only skin deep. They are less beauty and the beast and more like Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd. I'm merely kidding...I think so, at least.
Grace is unhappy in her life, which is hell. Her sister has Down's Syndrome, and comes to live with the couple. Things start to happen. I thought the writing was slick and I wanted to read - and did read - it as fast as I could. Jack was a character executed ...more
Slam! Yes, because as the saying goes, what one always sees isn't what necessarily goes on behind closed doors. In the case of newlyweds - -18 months new- jack and grace, the epitome of perfection in every way, there seems to be a...catch. As Grace is never without Jack. The irony is he's a high powered lawyer who defends abused women. Yet there are locks and metal shutters on their windows. Grace never leaves without him. Is it paranoia? Or could he himself be the monster he defends?
I found thi ...more
3.5 Stars. This guy is SICK!
The perfectly plotted lie from movie-star handsome and brilliant lawyer Jack Angel turns Grace's day-to-day life upside down. Disbelief, shock and panic turn her honeymoon to Thailand into a living hell, but its what happens upon their return home that awakened my hatred for this sicko wishing him a long and painful death.
"It was then that I didn't only vow to kill Jack, but to make him suffer as he had made Molly suffer."
After the initial introduction and hasty mar...more
(2.5?) There's no way I can review this book without sounding like an asshole but I'll try.
You're following the story of a woman who's in an abusing relationship. Classic bait and switch. As soon as she gets married to him, she realizes he's a monster. However, even if the audiobook narrator did a great job, I just had troubling caring much about her or feeling like she didn't have opportunities to get out of there...
Wasn't for me. Wouldn't recommend.
UPDATE: 11-3-16 $2.99 on kindle. Not sure for how long!
My initial reaction during the beginning of this book was, "What The Hell Is Going On." I knew it wasn't good and I had an idea but ideas are never totally what your thinking.
Jack Angel is a lawyer and his wife Grace used to be a lot of things but she's not any more. Oh, she's the perfect hostess when people are allowed to come over, but things are never what they seem. When I found out what was going on, all I could see was kill him! NOW! ...more
