The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton
Leaving me? How can you want to end this relationship, Nate? I am the perfect girlfriend.
Juliette and Nate had been together for a short while, but Nate wanted some space.
Juliette couldn’t get over how Nate wanted to end what they had so she decided to train as an airline stewardess and be close to Nate since he was a pilot. She had to remember, though, that their parting rules were to have no contact.
Juliette knew how to stay close to Nate yet remain apart. Juliette would stop in at Nate’s apartment when she knew he was on a long distance flight and pretend she still lived there.
Juliette did some other things not so benign simply because no one can have Nate if she can’t have him because she is the perfect girlfriend.
THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND was a bit slow to start, but once Juliette started with her "plans," the pages flew by because you won't be able to believe the extent she went to making sure to keep an eye on Nate and his current life.
You won't want to miss reading THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND if you enjoy a steadily paced thriller that reveals Juliette and her past and especially her current plans to keep Nate.
She actually made my heart race with the things she did and with her boldness. It is also difficult to believe how she thought of the things she did.
Obsessive, cunning, deceitful, unstable, and awful are the PERFECT words for THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND. 4/5
This book was given to me as an ARC by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
