Mary meets Jacob, they have sex, she gives him a key to her house and she lets him move in. Jacob is creepy, Mary is a moron of epic proportions. Some stuff barely worth mentioning happens, Jacob half heartedly stalks Mary and she's skeered of him. It quickly spirals in to the ludicrous and ends with a whimper.

Mary has lived in her own little cocoon since her husband died. Work, an occasional meal out with a friend and her home. That is until she sets her eyes on 21 year old Jacob.
I found this a very sad book to be honest and it raised a lot of moral questions with me. The author Diane Dickson has written a very deep psychological thriller that has many layers like an onion. A topsy-turvy story where the hunter becomes the hunted to become the hunter again. Every choice we make has consequences for

I couldn't put this book down. Very edgy and creepy. I won't give it away but... Ewww! What a creepy man! Very good read.

I enjoyed this stalker type novel where a women who lacks self confidence gets manipulated by quite a creepy guy. An easy read that kept up the suspense level.

I really enjoyed this book and read it quite quickly.

There are some typos and misspelled words here and there.

However the storyline kept me flipping the pages well into the night.

I would describe this as a first-person romantic suspense/thriller. A woman who is looking for a seemingly innocent affair is thrust into a terrifying cat and mouse game with a very weird character whom stalks her.

I put a small review on my blog:

No where near a thriller

The main character is so unbelievable in this book. There is no way this' middle aged' woman cries that much and ends up out smarting a stalker.... Stalker 101 just a little would have made the storyline better. The ending could have been so much more but in the end just a total letdown. The story has you rooting for Jacob not Mary.

I liked this book better than 'Who Follows'. The characters were better developed, and the story was more believable. I predicted the ending from pretty early on, but that didn't bother me. It felt fitting to me. I don't have much else to say about this book. I'm not sure I'll read anything else by the author.

Uh okay...

It was okay but just that okay. Was it basically the same story as others like it? Yes it was. I finished it because I wanted to know what the plan was... It read like a life time movie which is okay but just that okay. Plus what happens in the end seemed rushed and predictable.

I could barely make it through. The main character is crying or tearing up on every other page and it made me want to slap her around too. Guess I like my protagonists strong and this weepy woman was way too much for me.

I could not get past chapter 27. The character is weak, select depreciating, emotionally void. I was hoping to get to the gripping part, but could not force myself to read any further. And to think there are 90 plus in this book. Another author off my list.

This is a book that should be read by women of all ages to avoid the pitfalls of an abusive relationship. Very well written and highly recommended.

It was Ok

It was enjoyable but I was never able to "live" the story like most books. Possibly the writing style and the English grammar.

Super slow to start, a little bit interesting through the middle, dull ending. Overall would not recommend to anyone but didn't feel as if it was a complete waste of time.

Kind of a corny romance. Woman falls in love with boy. Boy is abusive. Woman leaves boy. It was an average read.

Started off sorta boring but it soon sped up. Bad decisions when you are depressed can be life changing. Good read!

Started off alright then got annoying and ridiculous, if the ending wasn't so stupid, it would have been 4 stars.
