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.
My first thought when reading this book was “this is in no way, shape, or form a thriller” and up until maybe 50 pages towards the end I kept thinking that. The twist in the end I 100% did not see coming so I guess that was thrilleresque but I still would never qualify this book as a thriller. That already made me not love the book. When it says thriller I want a thriller! I also could not stand Emily and how she stuck by Adam, not only because of his mother, but also because he was a giant asshole. Come on girl want better for yourself! The only part of the book I enjoyed was the twist. Usually I see them coming and this one I definitely did not. If you want a quick, easy read with a good twist then read this book. Just know you aren’t getting a true thriller & the characters will piss you off a lot of the time.

“It was just a beautiful meeting of two people who were utterly in tune with each other.”
