Kate is a professor at a small college. She is an intelligent, attractive, and recently divorced author in her late thirties. Sam is a student in her creative writing class. Sam is a charming, smart, and handsome college student in his early twenties. Kate isn’t in the best place in life, and Sam comes along at just the right time. He knows her. Understands her. Wants her.
An intriguing novel about obsession. The story was told from alternating points of view, and I enjoyed reading both Kate’s and Sam’s stories. Kate seemed vulnerable, a bit trusting, and lonely. Sam studied Kate in such a way that was creepy, and he wanted desperately to be in her life. I liked Sam’s character a little more than Kate’s, but both characters could have been a little better developed.
This was a “stay up late to finish” type book. I was curious how far Sam’s obsession would go. I was a little disappointed in the ending, but, overall, it was a good read.
I received a copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is scheduled for release in January 2018.
