Today I am taking part in the blog tour and reviewing The Other Girlfriend by Alex Stone, published by Boldwood Books.
She loves him…
Lizzie Green once loved Tom Murphy with a passion that bordered on obsession. All she wanted was his love to be returned. Then one night something terrible happened and Tom left Lizzie broken hearted. She swore she would never let him hurt her again….
She loves him not.
Now, ten years later, Tom turns up on Lizzie’s doorstep still as charming as ever. Lizzie knows he still has the power to break her heart and destroy her life again. But Lizzie can’t say no to him….
A gripping new psychological thriller from bestselling author Alex Stone. Perfect for fans of Sue Watson, Shalini Boland and S.E.Lynes.
“She loves you…She loves you not…”
A dark and gripping read, The Other Girlfriend is a complex psychological thriller where a toxic relationship boarding on obsession is at its core and where manipulation is to used to prey on one’s vulnerabilities.
Stone creates a tense atmosphere that is heighten throughout the more the story progresses. Alternating from a now and then format, the narration is told mainly from our lead Lizzie’s POV and how events from the past shape the person she has become in the present.
The characters are well formed and a mix of likeable and unlikable. Each play their role well and evoke many different emotions. The secrets, lies and deceit keep things interesting and kept me flicking the pages well into the night. All up I found this to be a good read.
