Spoiler
Wanted to throw this across the room out of a window . The wedding night scene badly handles consent . Anthony angrily get butthurt about Kate asking to put off sex for a week , then lashes out saying he has the right to just “ take her as he sees fit” as they’re married. Marital rape much? He then interrogated her as to why she’s saying no as if saying no isn’t a complete sentence asking inappropriate questions like prior assault history etc. then starts whining about his own desires and how he can’t handle a week or no sex so she gives in. Coercion much ..  the show is MUCH BETTER.

Horrible from beginning to end. Do not recommend at all and I really, really hope the second season manages to clean up Anthony’s character and make him somewhat decent because i certainly do not vibe with an abusive, manipulative fuckboy in desperate need for therapy. 

It was beautifully narrated in audible, though 🤷🏻‍♀️
