My review: The Perfect Girlfriend, by Karen Hamilton


About the book:

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 review:

I’d like to thank NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book.

Unfortunately, my review won’t be positive but I believe honest reviews are welcome as well. Also my opinion is just mine, and someone else will find this book more interesting than me.

I must say that some parts of the book had a good initial idea, but at some point it all becomes over the top….

For me ‘The Perfect Girlfriend’ lacks sanity, realism, and any meaning. It doesn’t feel like a thriller or a mystery either.

At first, I was feeling sorry for Elizabeth/Juliette but it turned into huge annoyance. You need to be a masochist to finish this book and it doesn’t really lead to any quality ending. The only question I was repeating over and over again while reading was ‘why’.

I think ‘The Perfect Girlfriend’ can be a good self-help guide for needy, unconfident girls with a touch of mental illness.  Although, people with mental illnesses have more sense than Elizabeth/ Juliette.

This book is all about what to do to become unhappy and completely ruin yours and other people’s lives.

I really wanted to like ‘The Perfect Girlfriend” but unfortunately it’s getting 1* out of 5* for me.
