    1. I honestly don't know what to say or how to rate this book. I can really see it being a ⭐️ or ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I am in an emotional spiral. This book is intense and seriously all over, from beginning, middle and end I did a lot of And yet I'm literally sitting in the dark trying to figure out if I want to slap my husband, kiss my husband, punch my motherIt is hard to be mad when a book can totally mind fuck you.honestly, this book isn't for everyone

    2. 4.5 what the hell happened stars !!! This book !!!!There is crazy and then there is THE CRAZY ! And Contrite is THE CRAZY !!The blurb pretty much covers everything you need to know to get started . And boy let me tell you Contrite is a fast paced , no breather - thriller with some prett-ay steamy moments ! I started it this morning and I devoured it by the time night-time rolled out ! I was a little confused about Clove's character because of certain things she did . I mean Fuck that's gonna g [...]

    3. Have you ever felt like a book dragged you through the ringer, raked you over a grater, and bashed you off the rocks, yet you kept going back for more because what you’re reading had you so blown away you’re afraid to even blink between words? Contrite is that book. It was so full of twists and turns and OMG-did that really happen moments, I found myself gripping my couch cushions and digging my nails into my legs just to keep myself grounded while I read on. Kathy Coopmans so masterfully wr [...]

    4. this book is messed up. man is this book a total mind fuck. It was different and a lot of twists and turns. original for sure. did I like it? Well, I hated the ending so it ruined a lot of how I felt about the book. To each their own. *Just found out there is going to be a sequel. Not sure how I feel about that either

    5. Love the summary. I can't wait. I hope she becomes a new favorite author------------What happens when the man you’re married to isn’t the man you married anymore? Clove Calloway knows within an hour of picking up her husband Turner from the airport that something is different. Yet she can't pin point what. Together since College, they know everything about each other. So why has she spent the last few days watching everything he does, hoping for a clue? What could have happened within that w [...]

    6. This book was surprisingly amazing! It's funny but it was recommended to me through an email from and I'm thrilled that I got to take advantage of it through my KU account.One thing I can say about this book is that the writing style is definitely unique. It is so different from ANYTHING I've ever read before. It's narrated first person POV by the heroine, which was a bit disconcerting because her inner thoughts drove me nuts. There was enough craziness happening throughout the story and her mi [...]

    7. This book was terrible. The writing was amateurish. I figured out the twist immediately but I don't think I was supposed to. (view spoiler)[evil twin (hide spoiler)] The ending was an eye-rolling cliffyor not. I'm not sure. Needless to say I won't be reading the next book if there is one. This is the first time I've returned a book that I've read. Don't waste your time.

    8. Review by Jen Hagen I have no words…No words at all…I am thrown up against the wall with my mouth hanging wide open after completing this book. Here’s my dirty little secret – I almost always skip to the ending of a book to find out how it ends; but every once in a while I like torture myself and read a book without knowing how it is going to end. I made up my mind that I was going to go in blind with this book and take myself on the wild ride from the first page all the way through to t [...]

    9. got the booken I read the ending.Re-read the ending againOhmething's wrong.Why did it end like that?Oh no it's how the story ended!!!Ain't gonna read it.I want HEA!!!

    10. 2 starse beginning of book is good but middle and end has so many flawsot of things are unclear and I found heroine of the story total doormat

    11. It could've been great but it went wrongThis is the story about Clove and how her life changes after his husband makes a work trip without her. I really thought I was going to like the book, it has a lot of 5 stars reviews and the blurb sounded really good. However, I have so many issues with the story and I'm going to start with what doesn't give the plot away. When I cannot do that, read after the spoiler alert. - The book is too descriptive and it makes it repetitive. That makes it tiresome a [...]

    12. Let me start off by saying I loved every page of this story line, its left me speechless since last night when I finished reading it. Contrite is my favorite book of 2015 by far. After I reached the final page my emotions were scattered, I was dumbfounded and stupefied by this roller coaster of a story. From page one I was captured, intrigued and couldn't stop reading till I knew what was going to happen. I'm in awe of this author and so proud of this bookBRILLIANT!!!Clove and Turner have a love [...]

    13. UnknownI was sceptical about the book at first until I began to see the plot emerging.It is a gripping page turner that will have you sucked in to the world of infatuation, greed,hatred and a heartbreak end.You will be shocked by the ending, I was!!Heading on to Contrite (book2)

    14. What the hell have I just read. I'd heard it was a book like no other. I devoured the book, waiting for the bomb to drop. And when it did, I was gutted! I can't decide if I loved it or hated it. Either way it got me feeling.

    15. 4.50 -5.00. Madness. Mayhem. Mindfuckery. The ending…WTF? Is it really over? Is there a sequel planned? OMFG I need to know if certain characters are really alive/dead. This book was absolute KINDLE CRACK.

    17. I freaking loved this story. It was hot as hell. And yeah, I know I will be in the minority, but I love Trent. I'm pulling for him all the way. I forgive him for all his fucked up twisted-ness. He's awesome. Can't wait to see what happens with him and Clove in the sequel.

    18. ABSOLUTELY, UTTERLY RIDICULOUS!!I never read erotica but someone recommended this title because they know I like dark thrillers UNFORTUNATELY this isn't dark, it's just nonsense.Clove's husband returns from a business trip but she can see that something is wrong, it turns out that her husband has been replaced by his evil twin (this isn't a spoiler, she finds out within the first few chapters). Does this news stop her from sleeping with this evil twin? NOPE, in fact she ends up doing sexual acts [...]

    20. This book completely f'ed me up. But in the most tortured, good way possible. I actually finished it yesterday but needed a good 24 hours to compose myself and sit down to write this review. Two negative reviews have been left for this book and both I have to disagree with so implicitly- this book MAY have hinted at what they plot was to it, but it totally was NOT completely obvious. The end MAY have been completely mind boggling, but it IS very worth reading and waiting on pins and needles for [...]

    21. There needs be half scores! I would definitely rate this story a 4 1/2!! Contrite was one of my top reads of 2015. At every page turn this erotic suspense thriller leaves you shaking your head going "WTF!!" The entire story is full of twists and turns that will leave you on the edge of your seat. As soon as you think that you have it figured out the story flips in another direction. I was unable to put it down!!Clove and her husband Turner have been never been apart for more than week since they [...]

    22. Wow This is one of THOSE books. The kind that leaves you speechless at the end and still thinking about it hours and even days later. Its so hard to write a review about a book like this because it’s an “experience” book. You as a reader need to experience every single thing yourself as your reading it. To talk in depth about this book would give away to many spoilers. But its soo worth the read. My best advice is to read the blurb I’d like to give you a few warnings but I wont. Well may [...]

    23. I don't even know where to start. My mind is still spinning after this amazingly twisted story! Author Kathy Coopmans warned us all. She gave all her fans the heads up. I was prepared to be mind-blown. No I was not. This book is on another level of intense drama. I loved it. I am not giving anything away with this review. So I am going to say this. Read it. Read it as soon as possible. It's worth the book hanger in every way. When I finished this I just stared at my walls in quit, trying to calm [...]

    24. Mind blowing! Not what I expected. Contrite is full of twist and turns. Kathy Coopmans writing in this book is amazing and totally different from her other books. I had to go back and re-read it again because the first time I was shocked and stunned and had to make sure I didn't miss something. Without spoilers all I have to say really is WTF just happened???? I'm still going over it all in my head!

    25. WTF did I just read? I'm so confused. Very unique storyline that I enjoyed until the last 1/4 of the book. From there, even though it should be climatic, I found myself checking my reading process because it wasn't holding my interest. And that ending? HUH?

    26. I really hope there is a part 2, because this book really owes me. Has me feeling some type of way. Not happy with the mind Fuckery it ended with. IJS.

    27. I don't know how to write a review about this book, if I tell you about the characters it would involve giving some of the story away and I wouldn't want to do that, you should experience the shocks exactly the way I did!This book takes you on a journey you wouldn't believe, it will seriously mess with your mind! Its all kinds of messed up, but in a good way.I think!not for the faint hearted, there are some triggers involved, but if you can handle some darkness its definitely worth a go. And tha [...]

    28. WHOA!!! I'm not sure I even have words to describe how I feel about this book!! Holy hell! I have read books before that people called a mind f*ckery, but this? THIS! BOOK!! I finished yesterday and my mind is still reeling! I loved the characters and felt like I was living this drama right there with them. And over-the-top hot sex, WOW! I highly recommend this to those that aren't squeamish and can stand a good thriller!

    29. ★3.5 Stars★Umm… what the FUCK did I just read?! Did that just happen?! I am so confused and pissy right now… This story really did a number on me. I found it equal parts gripping and frustrating. And talk about unique! I don't think I've read a story quite like this before. The story is shrouded in mystery, and as the answers were drip fed throughout the book, I become more and more intrigued. And my god, that ending… it was a killer. Thumbs UPThe story was really well written, and I f [...]

    30. Contrite fried my brain! When I finished this book, I had a WTF moment and then proceeded to stay awake most of the night wondering 'what just happened?'So yes, this book is definitely an erotic suspense novel that will leave you on the edge of your seat. It's hard to talk about the plot without revealing spoilers so I won't get into much detail. Basically, Clove is suspicious when her husband returns home acting much different than normal. He's not the same husband who left a week ago for a bus [...]
