A deliciously disturbing, compulsively readable debut domestic suspense--prepare to meet The Other Woman: there’s nothing she won’t do to keep you away from her son ...
Emily thinks Adam’s perfect; the man she thought she’d never meet.
But lurking in the shadows is a rival; a woman who shares a deep bond with the man she loves.
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.
The Other Woman is an addictive, fast-paced psychological thriller about the destructive relationship between Emily, her boyfriend Adam, and his manipulative mother Pammie.
**This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.
Emily believes that she had found the man she’s been waiting for. Her forever, till death do us part man. But what do you do when the that man has one overbearing, nosy, interfering mother. That is exactly the situation that our main character find herself in and will have to figure it all out.
Let’s talk about the three main characters before I tell you anymore. Pammie is Adam, (the boyfriend’s) mother. She is the character you want to hate so much, but really can’t. She is nosy, bossy and has this weird relationship with her son, Adam. Now, he has is fair share of weirdness too when it comes to.his mother from what I could tell, he was a little off too. Emily was stuck in the middle.
We are given a front row seat for this roller coaster ride of these three characters, narrated by Emily. Emily was smitten with Adam from the moment she met Adam. Then she meets his mother Pammie and the snide comments and constant meddling begins, driving a wedge between them all. But questions start to rise of the relationship between Adam and his mother as well Emily’s role in it all, she turns a blind eye to it all. I found myself wanting to smack some sense into Emily for the things she did too. Wake up honey, this is one dysfunctional family…
The pace is a medium pace and it certainly picks up toward the end. With everything going on, I began to question all three Emily, Adam and Pammie. The events leading up to the ending were suspenseful, but the big twist at the end wasn’t all that twisty, at least to me. But even so, it all was so really good and did take us readers on one wild ride. I warn you, there is some domestic violence that will not set right set well with some readers.
The Other Woman was one of my most anticipated reads for the year, and I have to say, it was worth the wait. But don’t forget to beware of Pammie…
