    I actually finished this a couple of days ago, but I’ve been sitting here wondering what I can say other than WOW. This was completely unexpected in the best way possible. You’ll want to go in blind people, as it reads best knowing nothing ahead of time, but all I can say for now is you definitely want to add this to your reading list for 2018! 😱😱😱 Fans of twisty, tense, psychological suspense (see what I did there?!) will eat this o...

    4.5 starsHoly Crap!!! What did I just read!?! I DID not see that ending coming - not at all!!!Emily has finally met the perfect man. Adam is caring, attentive, and loving. After a heart-breaking betrayal and breakup and after a few years of dates that led nowhere, Emily has finally found the one. The only downside - he seems to be unnaturally close to his Mother, Pammie.His super closeness to his mother might be easy to overlook if Pammie was not...

    4.5 stars - Buddy read with Holly B! I would just like to state for the record that I officially read too many psychological thrillers and my inner detective will not go away - once again I had it figured out early on so I have to say, I can’t rate thrillers anymore based on the twist. I am unfortunately bound to figure it out😩 (someone please stump me!!). So based on this one, I have to say it was crazy well done (emphasis on the crazy!) in...

    2.5 stars The Other Woman is a wildly entertaining psychological thriller that's, unfortunately, more about the twist than substance. The plot: Emily meets the love of her life, Adam. Adam is a pretentious ass and treats Emily like dirt. His mother, Pammie, treats her even worse and Emily thinks she's a psycho. Then there’s James, Adam’s brother whom Emily has the hots for. But hey, it must be true love because Emily is going to marry Adam n...

    3 STARSI admit it, this book took me forever to finish! Never a good sign. The plot is fine, but the characters are so trite and stereotyped and I WAS SO BORED. You guys know I'm not a fan of the helpless, hand wringing "heroine" and yep, that's what we have in our girl, Emily. C'mon, Emily!! Wake up and smell the coffee! That family you are about to marry into? They are so SHADY! Run for the hills!There is a character you will love to hate in th...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr...3.5 Stars! Emily was content with life. Her job was going well and she had some great friends. She wasn't even looking for a boyfriend. But then she met Adam, the man of her dreams.Soon she's seeing Adam almost every night. Her friends wonder if she's moving too fast and are also a little miffed because they feel like they never see her anymore. But she's never felt this way ...

    This book was a fun, crazy, and at times maddening trip! Emily is dating Adam and things are going great until she meets his mother, Pammie. It seems like Pammie will stop at nothing to keep the two of them apart. I felt such anxiety when reading this one because it plays on one of my fears which is the mother in law from hell. I actually have a nice, normal mother in law but I guess knowing I was lucky and dodged a bullet there makes these type ...

    4.5 starsI was worried this book would not live up to the hype, but am am happy I was wrong. The Other Woman is a clever page-turner and the ending delivered a twist I did not see coming! I did have trouble understanding why Emily stayed with Adam in light of all the trouble the relationship was causing, her (not spoiler, don't worry!), but other than that, I really enjoyed this book. I won't go too much into the plot, because I really don't want...

    The Other Woman by Sandie Jones is another of those books that make me crave popcorn once I pick them up and start reading. It’s the type of story that early on you get the entire general idea of what will happen but still fun to sit back and wait for the fireworks and enjoy the show along the way.Emily has come out of a relationship where she caught her boyfriend cheating with a good friend of hers so she’s a bit hesitant to get back in the ...

    This is a very good debut novel by author Sandie Jones that makes me eagerly anticipate further books from this new thriller writer.Emily falls in love with Adam and there is no doubt in her mind that she has found her true love. But circumstances change when she encounters the other woman, Pammie. Pammie is Adam's mother and seems to be on a mission to keep them apart, but how far will she go to succeed. This psychological thriller is full of go...

    For most of this novel, I thought of it as being a solid, stress-inducing book—in a good way. I like books that have a twist, unfortunately, the twist at the end of this one didn’t ring true to me.I liked Emily, and disliked Pammie so much, that I found this to be an absolute page turner, hoping that somehow things would work out for Emily.Emily meets handsome Adam at a bar during a conference. Sparks fly, and though they’ve only been datin...

    Emily thinks Adam is perfect; the man she thought she would never meet. But lurking in the shadows is a rival; a woman sho shares a deep bond with the man she loves.They say love is blind and there has never been a truer saying to describe what's happening in this book. When Emily meets the other love in Adams life, his mother Pammie, she is not met with the most pleasant person. Pammie does everything she can to break them up. Even saying she ha...

    The Other Woman is a thrilling ride to the say the least that Sandie Jones takes us on!So.. have to be honest I really struggled with rating this one. Did this novel keep me on the edge of my toes and give me one hell of a ride?! Heck yes.. but on the other hand this is a plot that we have seen before. My mind kept going back and forth to The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances. This is a very similar plot line as this story but Sandie takes a slightl...

    I received a free e-copy of The Other Woman by Sandie Jones from NetGalley for my honest review.This was a fantastic read. Very gripping, intense psychological thriller. It kept you guessing till the very end. This is a story of woman named Emily who falls in love whit a man named Adam. Adam's mother, Pammie, who doesn't want to share her son with anyone keeps trying to sabotage anything she can to make Emily's life a living hell. She is rude, ev...

    A very resisted DNF. I really tried to finish this book but couldn't. Really didn't like it.The dialogue between Emily and Adam. It felt so fabricated. Also Emily acts like an idiot. I couldn't stand to read a book about Emily, dedicated to bag Adam, happy to shut up and take things as he pleases. The world is full of Emily's with low self esteem, it just hurts to read about them running after a man as it's life or death, as if this is normal! So...

This is when her life starts to spin out of control.A great story with a twist that you will not see coming.

    Great debut Sandie Jones! A disturbing, suspenseful domestic thriller. I had heard a few people talking about this book so I was intrigued. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. Emily fell in love with Adam, but his mother was another story. Adam's mother Pammie did everything she could to get rid of Emily and stop the wedding. Emily just became more determined to overcome Pammie's maneuvers and marry Adam. The trouble was Adam just didn't s...

    4 Stars!First, thank you to Minotaur Books for sending me an arc of this book.This book came highly recommended to read by my fellow bookstagrammers so I felt like I needed to dive right into this even though it doesn't come out until August.The book starts off with meeting Emily who doesn't know if she could find the perfect soulmate. Then enter Adam who she falls in love with pretty quickly and he falls in love with her just as fast. They seem ...

    This book has been getting so much hype and as is always the case with buzzed about books I’m a little hesitant to see if they’ll live up to the hype for me. I can definitely see what all the fuss is about with this one, it’s highly compulsive, a little disturbing and an all around really fun and engaging read.The idea of a nightmare mother in law is nothing new but Jones manages to insert a fresh new twist on the premise, what if the other...

    4.5 Wildly Disturbing Stars!The Other Woman had me hooked right from the beginning. It's crazy, disturbing, twisted, and outrageously addictive - a definite page-turner for me. Emily and Adam start dating and appear to be madly "in love". Then enters the other woman, Pammie, Adam's mother. How far will Pammie go to get Emily out of Adam's life? Emily will soon find out! This is the type of book that if I say too much I will give it all away... in...

    This book was sinfully addictive I read it in one sitting. For fans of psychological thrillers this is likely to be a sure fire hit of the summer.Pammie is a star character. A total star character. The “mother in law” from hell indeed, plus the author twists and turns the narrative really well when it comes to the heart of the story, that of the eternal triangle between Mother, Son and the girl he chooses.I’ll be honest and say there are mo...

    **4 Goodreads Stars** "She'd become a master of deception, subtly changing her demeanor, prowess, and even her voice, I'd noticed, when he was around." In Sandie Jones' The Other Woman, Emily thinks she has met the man of her dreams. Emily is wooed by Adam, a charming, hunky executive who buys her a drink at a hotel bar during a work conference. Emily, not one to usually be swept off her feet by a whirlwind romance, becomes surprisingly enamoured...

    I'm always excited to discover a debut novel that keeps me up at night, burning through pages to reach the end. The Other Woman certainly did that with an air of impending doom surrounding the heroine, Emily. I knew it was just a matter of time before everything hit the fan as this gripping story unfolded. Emily and Adam meet in a bar and are immediately in lust and soon after "in love". Emily has finally met her prince, and now she's meeting his...

    Freaking brilliant!!!!!!!!The book description "deliciously disturbing" and "compulsive" most certainly hits the nail on the head on this one. This psychological domestic drama had me drooling, obsessively wanting to see how far this manipulative mother would go to keep Emily away from having a relationship with her son, being flabbergasted each time I discovered how far below the belt this mother was capable of going. And then...gasp...she'd go ...
