Enhance your purchase
Welcome to the neighborhood. Watch your husband, watch your friends, and watch your back.
Cat Winthorpe has worked hard to get what she has: a gorgeous home; social standing; and William, her successful, handsome husband. Then a friendly new couple moves into the estate next door. While cautious, a good neighbor like Cat greets them with open arms and warm hospitality.
Neena Ryder isn’t a fellow lady of leisure. A life coach with off-the-rack dresses, personal issues, and a husband who hasn’t delivered, she’s anxious to move up in the world. This beautiful new town is a step in the right direction. It’s also making Neena aware of what she doesn’t have. Namely, William. When Neena’s infatuation escalates into obsession, it’s just a matter of eliminating a few obstacles to get the life she wants. The life next door.
As Neena’s secret fixation grows, so does her friendship with Cat. But beneath their cordial interactions is a wealth of temptations, secrets, and toxic jealousy. For both women, the desire for a perfect life can turn perfectly dangerous.

I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
I hate Neena. Hate. Her. I don’t think she has one redeemable quality. Zero. She has a great husband who worships her feet and she treats him like he is mud on her shoe. She’s as fake as they come and I was hoping she would die the whole time I was reading.
Now Cat. I love Cat. I tell ya something that woman is a smiling, snarky genius. Her and Matt are the only redeemable characters in this whole book. Cat was the reason I kept reading, well also to see if Neena was going to die. Lol
Every Last Secret is one hell of a ride. It pissed me off, made me laugh, and pissed me off even more. But the emotions it brought out of me were very real and I wouldn’t want it any other way. The ending was perfect and tidied up. There was no guessing or left up to your imagination with this book.
Alessandra covered it in a pretty red ribbon. Everything on the outside was beautiful but once you opened it up, she tore your heart out with her perfect smile. Never to be the same again.
I am so happy I got it as my free Kindle book. Because if I had paid for this, I would be pretty annoyed.

‘Every Last Secret’ at it’s core is a psychological thriller about two women who go head-to-head over a married man. Cat, married to William for 13 years, is living the good life. She is the queen of their affluent neighbourhood, an equal investor in her husband’s multimillion-dollar business, and the woman others strive to be. While Neena wants Cat’s life... literally. Even though she has a husband who adores her, her goal is to become William’s next wife, even if it means destroying Cat...
Cat and Neena battle in an expert game of cat and mouse. I usually like my domestic thrillers to be more murder and less sex and romance, but I really enjoyed the nasty fun of both of these narrators who were beautifully flawed, cold & calculating as AR Torre weaved together a fantastic story of money, murder and betrayal. The author's note at the end really tied it together well.

This book is wild! I really enjoyed it ... read it in one day. It’s juicy, dramatic, mean, funny, twisty, infuriating (I just wanted to shake some of the characters at times), suspenseful, emotional. I couldn’t put it down — I had to know what would happen on the next page.
This author writes really well, I’ll be checking out other books by her for sure. This one, despite its outlandish nature, was actually a good character study, too. I also enjoyed the descriptions of the characters’ lifestyles.
Overall, a very enjoyable read.

It was a quick read. Nothing is wasted. Nothing is repeated. It's one of those books where anybody who is paying attention will spot the plot and just roll with it. I hate the tendency of some writers to throw in something the reader couldn't possibly have known right near the end to chuck us off the scent. This isn't one of those. Read closely, follow the plot and you'll know exactly what's going to happen.
Two couples on a wealthy housing development - one couple supremely successful with several companies, a Hawaiian bolt-hole, a private jet and everything they could dream of (except a child), the other dragging themselves up the ladder of success. They become neighbours and the social climbing wife sets her cap at the other woman's husband, determined to either win him or a large chunk of his money with no holds barred along the way.
I didn't 'buy' the woman's job as a corporate coaching expert, nor her PhD qualifications, but you have to suspend some disbelief in any book like this. I enjoyed the power-play between the two women, each with a husband they simultaneously love and disdain. I also enjoyed the refreshing brevity of a story told from four points of view. Way too many authors use multiple narrators to just say the same thing over and over again. Torre doesn't do that. Thank goodness.
It's a good, quick, page-turner and whilst I didn't LOVE it, I enjoyed it and I suspect I still made the right choice for this month's Amazon Prime First Reads.
The characters are dreadful- two scheming excuses for women. Neither with an ounce of quality. One wooden Adonis (not) that the women are slavering over and a reasonable individual, who is the main victim.
When the build up to an ending includes the excitement of having teeth veneers then the ridiculousness of the whole storyline is exposed. Oh.......it’s exceptionally boring too. Just goes on and on and on ........never ending tedium.
Who is going to win/retain the wooden Adonis? Well.......waste money on this and you’ll find out. NOT Recommended.
Neena and Matt Ryder move next door to golden couple Cat and William Winthorpe in an exclusive gated community in Palo Alto. William is Neena's boss and she plots to seduce him in a cunning plan to replace Cat. Cat sees through the plan and plays games of her own. With 2 cunning women out to destroy each other the premise of the book has plenty of potential for a tense psychological thriller.
From a decent build-up it gets silly, then sillier until the "seriously?" ending and often seems as if the author is making it up as she went along rather than following any kind of pre-planned plot-line.
Only one of the main characters is remotely likeable,the others deserved each other and are as immoral,shallow and untrustworthy as each other. What tension there is completely fizzles out towards the end and when this reader at least was hoping for a plot twist that never came, I'd lost interest well before then anyway but was determined to finish the book.
The saddest thing is that there's so much potential in the idea and the book does start out quite promising but ends up reading like a "decent effort" from a new writer than something written by an already very successful author like A.R.Torre.
Pretty poor it has to be said.
Every last secret is just drivel and one of the worst books I've read in a long time. Repetitive and every other sentence is almost like an advert for a shopping catalogue. cardboard characters with little development.
The scheming Neena, the confident Cat, the arrogant William.
I liked the extreme wealth aspect, showing that no matter how much money you have, there can still be problems in a marriage.
The story started to develop also, would Neena get her claws into William? Would she go to any lengths?
Then, just when it started to really get going, it was as though the author found out shed written enough words and just ended it.
The 'culprit' was suddenly obvious before we heard her confession, and the whole thing fizzled out.
