Minotaur Books – August 21, 2018
HE LOVES YOU: Adam adores Emily. Emily thinks Adam’s perfect, the man she thought she’d never meet.
BUT SHE LOVES YOU NOT: Lurking in the shadows is a rival, a woman who shares a deep bond with the man she loves.
AND SHE’LL STOP AT NOTHING: Emily chose Adam, but she didn’t choose his mother Pammie. There’s nothing a mother wouldn’t do for her son, and now Emily is about to find out just how far Pammie will go to get what she wants: Emily gone forever.
MY REVIEW ★★★★★
Emily meets Adam. He’s a dream, and they are immediately caught up in their love for one another. Then, Emily meets Adam’s mother, Pammie. At first, things seem normal, though Adam and his mother are very close and protective of each other. As Emily and Adam’s relationship continues, Pammie becomes more and more hellbent on ending things between them.
A woman in love. A controlling mother. An oblivious son. These characters were so well-developed, and the unraveling of events perfectly paced. Emily is a little too naive and compliant. Pammie is the master of the backhanded compliment, and a great character you will love to hate. A compelling combination for a slow burning psychological thriller.
A wonderful debut novel, and I look forward to reading more by Sandie Jones. Great for fans of domestic thrillers. Clever, disturbing, and highly entertaining.
I received a free eARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
