Publisher's Summary

You’ve never heard a love story as twisted as this.

Juliette loves Nate.

She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him.

They are meant to be.

The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back.

She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.

True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain.

Some ppl may want to check their reading comprehension...

Trust me this book is so well written I’ve recommended it to everyone I know who reads or listens to books.
Our protagonist is very very broken and for good reason, which I won’t say. however, there is a lot of very dark humor too. I found my self chuckling at some of her musings. But I’m mainly writing this review to cancel out the reviews from people who just didn’t really get this book . They did not get the satirical nature of it, or the brokenness of this woman. Maybe it’s our attention span issues in this minute video culture. There are still those of us who enjoy savoring a book.
Back to the story...She was not only guilt ridden from a horrible tragedy she was bullied in school. We know this early on that one girl in particular made her life hell. I identified strongly with that. I won’t say what other event happened , but it was truly tragic. I think she had gone through enough to make anyone have problems.
Also let’s get this straight from the get go....SHE IS NOT A PSYCHOPATH. Much attention has been given lately to psychopathy but, this isn’t a case of one. If I had to diagnose this person I would say separation anxiety , unresolved parent issues, extreme guilt....but psychopaths do not feel guilt, nor love. This woman had more emotion than she could handle.
Im truly that authors get ripped because others go too fast and not and miss a lot of nuance in the narrative and the dialogue.
It is NOT necessary to like the protagonist to enjoy a book, only for them to be interesting. However, I liked this woman and found her to be fascinating. Also I cannot say enough about the narration. As always a British accent helps, but this narrator really went above Nd beyond to flesh out the characters.
I’m picky...really really picky. I’ve been disappointed by many books lately especially this genre. But this was beyond my expectations which is why it has rave reviews from the critics.
To come up with some of the situations she does took tons of imagination and then to execute them well....I say it takes talent.
Like I said, parts of the book were funny, parts were tragic, all in all I think it’s a winner and there is not one thing wrong with the ending.

A Long Haul

I liked the premise of this book, but the story went on forever with the (damaged) protagonist trying to catch this man who didn’t want to be with her. She goes from Plan A to Plan Z, in utter denial and the ending never resolves. Also, it was a very strange choice of narrator. Truly a case of a narrator not matching the book. I think the book was going for a modern, Gone Girl, vibe with a narrator that might have been better suited for a 1940s period piece. Distracting.

Glinda the Good Witch Narrates!

I may be guilty of letting a VERY BAD, HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE narrator influence my decision on this novel. But, the story is so dumb, that I'm sure I wouldn't have enjoyed it anyway.

You guys know how angry I get when I waste a precious Audible credit on a bad production. AAAAARGHHH !!!!!!!

This is the old story of girlfriend stalks ex-boyfriend relentlessly. They must be together forever she is certain of it. She plans, manipulates, changes her hair color and even her name. The author is very meticulous, not a single triviality of this stalking is overlooked. Everything is described in excruciating detail. B O R I N G !

Now, picture this modern girl, this stalker, this whiz of social media weirdly has... the exact voice of Glinda the Good Witch from Wizard of Oz. You get my pain, now, don't you? R I D I C U L O U S !

LOVED IT!

You either get this book or you don't. Personally, I loved it! I found myself on the side of the crazy woman and everyone else was wrong! Enjoyed it. It made me laugh, gasp, and OMG out loud. I hope there is a sequel.

What a nut!!

This is one of the best psychological thrillers that I've listened to in a while. So glad I went with my gut. The narrator did an excellent job. Highly recommend this one. 😀😀😀

Loved it!!!

No one can fight fate! Usually I get annoyed when a concrete ending isn’t provided, however, in this case not providing one really adds to the drama! You can imagine all the ways she will continue to traumatize and torture Nate! Great story.

I couldn’t stop listening

Holy cow. This was amazing. It’s like that Netflix show “You” except more terrifying and psychotic. Several times I audibly gasped. There were so many twists that I didn’t expect. I enjoyed every single minutes of this book and the narration was perfect. Please listen, you won’t regret.

So glad it’s over.

That was such a waste. I hated the main character, the story was too slow, and the ending was so maddening!

unhinged ex-girlfriend

This book is just about a psycho a girl obsessed with her ex and her invasion and infiltration into his life and the people close to him. Her whole life is aimed at trying to get him back and the lengths she will go to do this and convince him through any means that they belong together. It’s only barely, slightly different from other similar stories in the fact that she’s quite sad and pathetic rather than disturbing and vengeful — although she is those things as well, I just felt sorry for her most of the time. There is a deeper element to their relationship but it is not that striking or significant enough to justify why she is the way she is. I was entertained as a whole but not particularly impressed as there are countless similar books with this premise that are executed more thoroughly.
