Book Review: The Perfect Girlfriend, by Karen Hamilton.

Book Review: The Perfect Girlfriend, by Karen Hamilton.

Thank you very much to Irena (BookDustMagic) for my copy of this book. After Irena reviewed this book, I thought it would be a book I would love too, and what better way to find a good book than through a brilliant bookblogger, who happens to be a friend! Irena generously sent me her copy so that I could read it too. Irena’s review can be read HERE!

Description:

Juliette loves Nate. She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him.

They are meant to be.

The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back. She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.

True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain…

My Thoughts:

The Perfect Girlfriend is a brilliant book! The idea for the plot is unique, which makes it an addictive thrill of a read. Lily or Juliette as she likes to be known, knows that Nate is the man for her and that she is the only woman that Nate should be with forever and ever! And she will go to any lengths neccesary to ensure that Nate knows this and will agree! After all they were meant to be, weren’t they!

Juliette becomes a flight attendant at the beginning of this book, and this is where to plan to win Nate becomes interesting! The obsessive nature of Juliette is what makes this character interesting, readable and just a little bit scary. The Author writes Juliette in a way that we hear all her thoughts and plans and actually because we hear the thoughts from Juliette herself, the reader (or is it just me?…) can understand why she is so obsessive and perhaps at times feel for her.

I loved that Juliette’s job was a flight assistant because added in with the thrill of the plot and the craziness of the character, we also get to travel the world with them. The Author did such a good job of describing the countries that they visit, that this book will inspire the travel addicts aswell as the thrill lovers. The Author has written what she knows and has experienced, being a flight attendant herself. Initially I thought this job sounded amazing, but with time we see how demanding and sometimes lonely the job can be. Not the best feeling for a protagonist who is just a little bit crazy!

You know that old saying: “sticks and stones many break my bones, but words will never hurt me”. Whoever said that never knew Juliette. The lengths that Juliette goes to are scary, addictive and what makes The Perfect Girlfriend a perfect read.

This is the first thriller book that Karen Hamilton has written (as far as I know). I think she has a fan base waiting patiently for her net thriller. I am now included in that fan base.

    Your review is simply perfect! I loved Juliette and following her and her plans to get Nate back… It is fascinating. I wasn’t expecting to feel for the character, but in the end, I did! xx
