After a bad breakup, Ben meets Bella. She seems to be the perfect woman...charming, adoring, loving. It’s all a ruse. As she alienates him from his family and friends and increasingly makes his life difficult, it soon becomes clear that she has ulterior motives for their relationship.

I really wanted to love SHE. The premise is intriguing and seems original with the role reversal that we don’t often see in these types of thrillers. The book is separated into four parts. I really enjoyed Part 1.

Bella is a psychopath

This is a new author for me, the books simple title caught my eye and I was not disappointed.

When Ben’s eyes meet Bella’s across a crowded bar, is it love at first sight? Beautiful Bella seems to be the perfect cure for Ben’s broken heart after long term girlfriend Charlotte breaks up with him. They go from having a drink together to a meal and her moving in with him. A
real rollercoaster of a relationship!!

The first part is from Ben’s point of view, then Bella’s and why she settled down with Ben

SHE is cray cray!! This woman, my goodness. You have to read this book and see what happens but trust me, it is nuts! this was the perfect book to read whilst on holiday and I devoured it in just a few hours. At times I could not believe what I was reading!!

Ben has just broken up with long time girlfriend Charlotte when he meets Bella in a bar in London. Their relationship goes from 0 to 200 in a very short space of time and soon they are living together. But Bella doesn't like to share and want
This is a Psychological Thriller/Mystery. I have to say after reading the mixed reviews of this book I did not know if I wanted to read the book anymore, so I put off reading this book for awhile. I can see why their is mixed reviews. The twists and turns where really crazy, and I did not know what to think about them. I did not love or connect to any of the characters in this book. I did not love this book, but I did not hate this book. This book was just ok to me, but I have to say you do not ...more

I really wanted to love this book! I am very into books about female psychopaths (let's not think TOO hard about what that might say about me) and superficially, the cover really drew me in because I love shoes. Unfortunately, the book itself was not as exciting or creepy as the cover might suggest with its Louboutin-heeled villain. The book recites events from different points of view, without enough twists or differences to make the repetition exciting. There was the opportunity for some aweso ...more

Repetitive and tedious domestic noir with superficial characterisation.

She is an uninspired domestic noir and family drama that proved to be boring and mind numbingly repetitive.

The plot is straightforward and the story split into four parts which begin six months after Ben Gordon’s heart has been broken by his girlfriend of twelve years and breathtakingly beautiful Bella walks into his life. Everything about Bella seems perfect and a whirlwind romance ensues with Bella pregnant after only two

Once I sat down to read this book, I could not stop until it was done. I do not want to ruin the story, but this is one of those books which will grip readers from the start and make no qualms about not letting go of your mind for days. This book has stuck with me since I picked up the moment I was approved,

This is a great story. Ben is dumped by his long time girlfriend, but he is going to be okay. This is because he’s met Bella, who is sexy and amazing, She is the girl he has always wanted, a

I haven’t read a wickedly evil book like this in a long time and I enjoyed every sick and twisted minute of it! A very fast and addictive read. I look forward to reading more books by this author. I thank Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.

Really 2 1/2 - rounded down because I am feeling mean today.

So it’s good to try new genres, and I can see why some people love it so much but I don’t think this author is for me and I will not be picking up any more from her.

This is a psychological thriller, fast-paced and ever so melodramatic. The novel is meant to be read in a rush, in one or two long gulps and over before you have time to think about it.

The premise is an interesting one, if you, like me you had discussions about certain peo

This was SUCH a surprising book!

I went into this one with pretty low expectations. I wasn't sure how much of a thriller it was going to be, if it was going to be more drama than thriller but I was pleasantly surprised

I was hooked from the very beginning. The writing style was really engaging and easy to read.

There was a big twist, during the book and I was shocked! I literally gasped out loud. I did not see it coming.

What I loved the most about this book was how it challenges stereotypes and

I thouroghly enjoyed every page, every chapter. I loved reading about all the characters.

The reason I loved Ben was because he was so excited about the future with him and Charlotte, that he was on the verge of proposing to Charlotte. But Charlotte decided to leave Ben, maybe she was getting cold feet with the fact that they would be spending their the rest of their lives together.

Then Ben becomes a weak man being told what to do by sexy young woman, Bella, that he

Really enjoyed this one! Only reason Iv not given a 5 is because the twists didn't shock me. But still... a very good read. Ben is smitten with his new girlfriend Bella. But he is also a little bit scared! He can't put a fonger on it, but she's actually quite perfect. He can see it, but somehow, everyone around him can't! This book is a bit of a mix of the hand that rocked the cradle and fatal attraction!! ...more

Definitely fast-paced, definitely a thriller, definitely some seriously warped characters

But...some flaws in the plot and I thought there was so much potential for a ‘get-even’ conclusion.

Told from the perspective of Ben, then Bella; readers are able to step into these characters- all three stars are for the first half of this book.

Then it changes to everyone else. By the time the ending comes I was hoping for so much more. Ultimately they deserved each other!

A gripping psychological thriller with a good plot and great characters. The first 150 pages really drew me in but after that I did think it became a little repetitive as the story was told from different points of view. A couple of great twists though.

I was hooked on She from the minute I started it - I was dragging it to and from work so I could read more each night/each lunch break.

Our man Ben gets himself into all kinds of dramas when his eyes lock with the "lovely" Bella across a crowded bar, and is life is never going to be the same again.

Boy, is Bella a piece of work.  I could feel myself tensing up, as each and ever move of hers began to take force.  I found myself talking

SHE is the type of book that I wish every thriller I read would be. I was gripped from the beginning, the first chapter just pulled me in and I honestly couldn't put it down - a cliche I know.

From the beginning I really didn't like Bella, she seemed too good to be true. There was just something about her that made you dislike her. I love when an author can create a character you love to hate.

I thought the format of reading the story and then flipping the book over to read it once more from Bella

I never normally read thrillers this close together but this is my 3rd one this month already.

Very fast paced, a bit slow and repetitive in the middle but so addicting. I have read a lot of thrillers so I can find them to become predictable but this was such a pleasure to read.

SHE, by H.C. Warner is a suspense book that I just put down. I had to stay up to see this book to the end. I was drawn into this psychotic suspenseful book from the start when Ben meets Bella at a restaurant and the only thing she request is a drink of water. Let’s question this statement. Who sits in a bar and only request water to drink.
Mind you, recovering alcoholics don’t relax in bars and scope out victims. I new something was suspicious about her from that point. I was on a dramatic, ‘“oh

This is the first book I’ve read by H.C Warner and after finishing She, I can guarantee that it won’t be the last! This book was right up my street with a compulsive storyline where secrets and lies hide in between the pages just waiting for the reader to uncover them. And OMG there were real corkers to discover here!

I loved the way in which the narrative was presented with part one of the book telling Bens story about how he meets and falls in love with Bella, a beautiful woman who always felt

This is a character driven story and it worked for me as everyone involved were relatable and human with many flaws...there some you love and some you love to hate. The main character, Bella, was a bitch of the highest order and her hatred of everyone around her was palpable.

This is a brilliant read with a wonderfully well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start and there were many a conflict to keep it interesting. I loved the writing style Mr. Warner uses as it

This was such a great marketing gimmick it sucked me in a treat. But with great gimmicks you also need a great story to back it up. Fortunately this has all that and more.

The first part is told from Ben’s perspective and introduces us to all his family and friends. Ben is an all round ” nice guy” who is feeling low after his girlfriend Charlotte gets the commitment wobbles and decides she needs space. Out for a drink with his best friend Matt he meets Bella and a very quick relationship develops

Ummmm....what the hell is this? The book randomly ends at the end of a chapter with no conclusion to the story and it literally says to start reading it again. I don’t know why? I’m confused and not in the usual thriller confused way.

It took me less than an hour to read and while the synopsis sounds brilliant She has no surprises, no twists or turns. It’s just basic, the plot is basic, the characters are basic and the writing is basic.

Honestly I’m baffled. I don’t know what I’ve read and I’m n
