In Two Sentences:

Juliet has a plan on how to get her boyfriend back and until then she has to keep an eye on him. This includes following him and becoming a flight attendant for his airline.

My Thoughts:

This. Book. I’ve been in desperate need for a good, creepy thriller and this one delivered that and more.

It’s told from Juliet’s perspective and honestly, it wouldn’t have been nearly as page-turning if it was told in any other perspective. She even goes into the reasoning behind her actions and it’s chilling how she rationalizes it.

The writing style sucked me in so quickly that I didn’t even notice time passing whenever I picked it up. There was about 70 pages where it seemed repetitive and like it’s happened before. I still wanted to know what was going to happen.

I can’t really say more without spoilers so onward to spoilers.

Spoilers ahead:

Okay but Nate deserves so much better. Like no one deserves a stalker that insane. It was consensual and it’s not his fault she got clingy. He tries so hard to just move past it and then just clinging.

It seemed as though it ended really abruptly but then I thought about it and I was like “Dang. She’s prepared to kill anyone who tries to get close to him.”

I felt as though I wanted more to come out of her affair with Miles. She never really used it as a stab to Bella’s heart. I was kind of looking forward to that.

What’s your favorite stalker thriller? Have you read The Perfect Girlfriend yet?

  1. No worries. I have a book to send to you and Luna too and I’ve just been lazy. Mind you I have been at the post office like 3 times last week for work. Hoping tomorrow or maybe I will after work this week.
