You Never Know What Goes On Behind Closed Doors!!
Behind Closed Doors - B.A. Paris

Cons:  A few slow moments, but towards the end I felt it started to rush and slightly predictable.


Pros: I had no idea I would be in store for a crazy good, demented psychological treat.  Every page turned built up anticipation for the next page.  The way B.A. Paris sets the pages for a smooth, gentle ride....then immediately shifts gears to a psychotic roller coaster ride.  The chapters switched from past to present which helped me fully understand the main characters' personalities.  I was absorbed in every page due to the intense characterization and gripping plot.  


"You never know what goes on behind closed doors" is a true adage when describing this book.  On the outside everything looks perfect and on the inside everything is dark and evil.  I highly recommend Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris to all readers who enjoyed a fast paced psychological thriller.  This was my first time reading one of this author's novels and have since added another one of her thrillers, The Breakdown as no.1,500,000 on my TBR list.

Behind Closed Doors

I found the beginning much more better than the whole package. The more I learned about an other monstrous nature of a charming lawyer the more implausible the whole story appeared. Not that I don't believe that domestic violence exists, but here it is another level of it, let's talk about a maniac, a psychopath, who managed to keep his real "I" from everyone and everything. But here though everything around Jack's personality is extremely unreal and illogical. I just cant see HOW and WHY he became what he became. The author didn't convince me. An eagerly awaited resolution came as a relief: Thanks God, it is over.

An interesting, small but IMO a very significant detail at the very end.

In spite of many complaints about the plot I still NEEDED to know HOW it would end, and kept on listening (even with eye-rolls).

One bonus star for the narrating.

Behind Closed Doors
Behind Closed Doors - B.A. Paris

I'm not exactly sure of the reason, but I could not connect to Behind Closed Doors at all. I didn't feel a thing for any of the characters or what happened to them. It wasn't a thriller for me. The plot isn't very plausible, but I was willing to look past it so my lack of connection wasn't from that. I wish I could put my finger on it, but I'm now even having a difficult time remembering details - that's how little I connected with this book. At least it was a quick read and a free loan from the library - so not much lost in the way of time and money. I'm sure there are those out there who will really enjoy this book. I just wasn't one of them.

My Thoughts...
What a SAD read!  This author really knows how to mess with our feelings because this was one emotional, dramatic and  abusive read that I have ever read [and please believe me I have read many!].  Both of these characters needed help. For poor Trinity...from that horrible mom and husband and for Philip the husband...he definitely needed lots of help too.  It was nice in the way the story went about Trinity finally coming to peace with all her mother had done to her.  At least the mom was now off of the drugs and had found God.  The story wrapped up in a neat package but I was definitely not satisfied with how that husband got away with so much and it wasn't really dealt with!  It is my understand that a lots of people have been faced with this type of abuse and all that can be said and done is when they finally get feed up hopefully they will be able to get out of the situation alive.  For Trinity it seems like there maybe light through that tunnel for her that she will get a much better life. I am still left  me saying wow that was some read and please understand that this read is not for the 'faint of heart.'

Even with the BS, pretty good!
Behind Closed Doors - B.A. Paris

I had a good time reading Behind Closed Doors. Until about 80% in, that is. Then the BS factor jumped and I had a tougher time staying immersed in the story. The very ending, though, helped me feel better about the book again. I walked away feeling mostly good about the experience and still looking forward to reading the author's next book.
