These Verity triggers warnings will help you decide whether to read and/or prepare to read Colleen Hoover’s bestselling romantic thriller book.
This special edition contains a new bonus chapter!
It’s no secret that Verity is a massive success as a New York Times bestseller, USA Today bestseller, The Globe and Mail bestseller, and Publishers Weekly bestseller. (And it’s popular with readers of The Literary Lifestyle too.)
Verity is also easily one of the most disturbing and graphic books I have read (but it’s also my personal favorite Colleen Hoover book). It also has an age rating for “Very Mature Adults” aged 21 and over. So, there are definitely a lot of content warnings to note before reading this book.
First, for a quick overview of the plot, Verity is about the (fictional) author Verity Crawford, who has sustained terrible injuries in an accident and cannot complete her books. So, her seemingly doting husband, Jeremy, hires struggling writer Lowen Ashleigh to act as a ghostwriter.
As Lowen sorts through Verity’s materials, she finds what’s either Verity’s autobiography or a manuscript, which is filled with an array of chilling events sure to make you gasp, including disturbing admissions about her twin girls.
At the same time, Lowen develops feelings for Jeremy, and strange things begin to happen, leaving you questioning everything you thought you knew about Verity. The conclusion is utterly shocking!
Of note, triggering content can be very subjective, so I have done my best to include the most common triggers in each Verity book trigger warning here. I also note that discussing these triggers necessarily includes some content spoilers; however, I have still tried to keep them as vague as possible and label the more specific ones, so as not to give away too much of the story.
