Man can I give this book a 3.5..LOL anyways I really did enjoy this book as it is subtitled as A Novel of Obsession and that is exactly what she was, obsessed, like to the extreme..Okay so the book starts out with an ordinary woman just like any one of us in a great relationship with a guy who is comfortable with her, and wants to marry her--she has a great circle of college friends and a great job as a scientific researcher for a female contraceptive..everything a thirty-something woman could want then one day as she is crossing the street she locks eyes with a beautiful mysterious stranger..Yeah he's hot and she is intrigued but forgets him as she goes to work, however when she leaves work he is still there and without even giving her his name she follows him to his borrowed residence and has mind blowing sex..Okay so with just that intro I was alittle lost on relating to her, who does this, she doesnt even know anything about him, where she is going or anything but follows this crazy quiet dude anywhere it was creepy..So like I said she follows him, begins this crazy affair where she lies to everyone, alienates herself from her friends and eventually breaks it off with her boyfriend and then get this, she marries the dude she knows nothing about..and yup he's crazy..He is ultra secretive, gets into kinky masochistic sex and becomes obsessesed with her, while she is finally wising up and investigating him as well..She delves into his past with an almost unhealthy fixation and finds everything she wanted to, and more..Like I said I enjoyed this book and felt the writing was superb, alive and expressive and I cant wait to read more from this author (interesting side note: found out this author was a husband and wife tag team writing duo, how amazing)--however as noted the plot was silly and kinda unbelievable, what woman would do anything she did, no intelligent self respecting female I know but hey thats why I read, to find out what I dont know and see what others do..Love it

 PuMbA's MoMmy*•.♥.•* I agree with you on how unbelieveable some of Alice's actions were! Ending was surprising.
