Juliette loves Nate. They belong together, even if he doesn’t realise it yet. She’s been giving him space, just like he wanted, but she’s nearly ready to get things back on track. She even got a job at the same airline he works for. Juliette is the perfect girlfriend, and no one will stop her from getting what she wants.
I did enjoy this book. It’s always fun to read from the point of view of the ‘psycho’ but, despite clearly being a little bit crazy, Juliette isn’t really portrayed as ‘the baddie’. She has been wronged in the past and is only trying to get what she thinks she deserves. She was a surprisingly likeable and relatable character, and completely sinister.
Unfortunately, a lot of the book was kind of boring. There is a huge amount of build-up with very little bang. Overall, the plot developed too slowly and there were large sections filled with information that didn’t actually add much to the story.
The best thing about The Perfect Girlfriend was probably how real it felt. All of the characters and situations were entirely believable. Most people probably have a little bit of Juliette in there somewhere.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
