Anything for Her by GJ Minett


You’d do anything for the one that got away . . . wouldn’t you?

When Billy Orr returns home to spend time with his dying sister, he bumps into his ex-girlfriend Aimi, the love of his life. He might not have seen her in eleven years, but Billy’s never forgotten her. He’d do anything for her then, and he’d do anything for her now.

When Aimi tells him that she wants to escape her abusive husband, Billy agrees to help her fake her own death. But is she still the Aimi that Billy remembers from all those years ago?

Once Aimi disappears, Billy has to face the possibility that perhaps she had different reasons for disappearing – reasons that might be more dangerous than she’s led him to believe . . .

Sometimes trusting the one you love is the wrong thing to do.

My Review

Talk about nice guy getting into a situation way out of his depth and control all in the name of love!

Meet Billy Orr, as a teenager the love of his life was a girl called Aimi, whom he dating for a while when they were teenagers but their relationship came to an abrupt end when Aimi’s parents divorced and she was forced to move away from the area to live with her father leaving him heartbroken.

Now 11 years on he is a successful London website developer running a business with friends and Aimi, having moved back to the town they grew up in is now married to the son of an influential businessman, the kind of man you wouldn’t want to cross or as an enemy!

Billy returns to his home town to take care of his sister who sadly is terminally ill, inevitably he soon bumps into Aimi and even though he hasn’t seen her in years he’s never been able to forget her or how he felt about her.

Sounds like a fairly normal average story so far right?

Don’t let that fool you, soon events take you into a rather unusual direction!

Aimi seeks Billy out and opens up to him about her marital problems, her abusive husband, her desperation to escape from him and that she feels her only way out is to fake her own death.

Manipulating Billy’s feelings toward her, his natural good nature and his desire to help her he soon finds himself part and centre of her plan to fake her own death.

Although Billy agrees to help her execute her plan he soon realises that, despite the careful planning, her husband and his family are suspicious and are not the kind of family that will let this go.

After Aimi’s disappearance Billy soon starts to question if she had other reasons for wanting to fake her own death and disappear, and that their actions might be far more dangerous than he first thought and led him to believe. He soon realises that her disappearance involves more people than he was made aware of and more to her story than he knew throwing his own life into turmoil.

The entire book is full of twists and turns, subplots and is a story full of deceit with a very unexpected outcome.  The ending certainly caught me by surprise which these days with the market flooded with this genre of novels is a credit to the author!

This is definitely on my highly recommended read’s list!

Anything for Her can be purchased now in kindle format and will be published in paperback on March 22, 2018. Both formats of the book can be purchased now or preordered from
