Reviews The Other Woman

  • Chelsea Humphrey
    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    At long last, Emily has finally found the man of her dreams...Adam. Just one itsy-bitsy problem. Marrying Adam also means marrying the other woman in his life.... his mother!!Pamela (Pammie), the soon to be mother-in-law is going to do whatever it takes to drive a permanent wedge between her darling sonny boy and his soon to be wife. Or even better, if she can pull it off, get Emily out of the picture…permanently!Wow! I’ve heard of some awful...

    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 ...

    4.5 Marvelously Manipulative Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5WOW! HOT damn! Another Flippin fantastic read! With an ending that left me speechless... and anyone that knows me knows how difficult that is! This is a book best gone into blind... I’d recommend reading very few reviews, but read mind of course!😉What do you do when the “other woman“ is your significant other’s mother? And to clarify what I mean by this is your S/O is overly emotiona...
  • Ova - Excuse My Reading
    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...
  • Holly B
    Buddy read w/ Melisa .... 4.5 STARSThis has a twisty plot and is an addictive page turner with a quirky cast of characters….Enter Pammie - Controlling mother like no other! A bit of advice to Emily (her soon to be daughter in law), pack your bags and RUN.Unfortunately, Emily is one of those friends who won’t listen to anyone because she knows best. She loves Adam with all her heart and won’t allow anyone to come between them (so she thinks ...
  • Dita
    Sorry, but this book is a Kardashian; famous for somehow, inexplicably being famous even though it is utterly devoid of substance.I know everyone is losing it over this book and I feel like I am always the voice of dissent but COME ON. This author "borrowed" shamelessly from three familiar books and/or movies, slapped them all together and hoped no one would notice.I loathed Emily; she was weak, spineless, needy and mute at all of the wrong times...
  • Jan
    Cliche' after cliche', contradiction after contradiction, eye roll after eye roll....The whole premise was just too absurd from me to take seriously.Others have had much better luck with this though, so what the heck do I know?ARC provided by NetGalley

    3 stars. Interesting plot. Suspenseful intrigue. Unforgettable characters.This story follows Emily, who has met handsome and successful Adam, the man of her dreams. They fall in love and are engaged within months. Things begin to drastically change when Emily meets her future mother-in-law, Pammie. Pammie is a character I will not soon forget!

  • Katie B
    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 ...
  • Malia
    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...
  • Liz
    This starts off as a bit of a swarmy romance and I really debated whether to continue. It takes a while for it to get creepy. But once Pammie arrives on the scene, it gets interesting. Now, I have to say, If I had been Emily, I would have run away from Adam screaming because it was obvious that his mother comes first in his heart. And that would be a problem regardless. I kept wondering if I was in my 20s and unmarried would I have been more will...
  • Michelle
    Here we have a love triangle of a different sort. That of a mother, a son, and his soon to be fiance. Yet love is not really a word I would use in this particular scenario. Because mother, Pammie, despises her son Adam's fiance, Emily, and she will stop at nothing to keep the two apart. I need to give Sandie Jones credit in creating a wicked villain in Pammie. She is the reason why I continued to flip the pages. Every word that came from her mout...
  • Theresa Alan
    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...
  • Carrie
    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 ...
  • Gary
    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...

  • Kendall
    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...
  • Susanne Strong
    3.5 Stars* (rounded down) When Emily meets Adam she immediately knows that she wants to snatch him up and she does exactly that. Emily however, has no idea that Adam is a mama's boy. From the get go, his mother Pammie is not a fan of Em’s and she appears to have it in for her - in the biggest way possible: by lying, tricking her and making her look as bad as possible in front of her son in hopes that he’ll break it off. The lengths this woman...

    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...
  • Sheri
    The cover states it perfectly: He loves me. She loves me not. These two short and simple sentences could be uttered by either of the women depicted in this tightly wound tale.This suspenseful read will have you questioning just who the villain is. Is Pammie truly a vindictive mother-in-law or is Emily an unreliable narrator? Throughout the book, I alternately found myself siding with each woman. Pammie could be ice cold, but there were also times...
  • Brenda - Host of Traveling Sisters & Friends
    Lindsay and I read The Other Woman with four of our Traveling Sisters and we all pretty much had the same thoughts on this one till that shocking reveal that split us into two different coulees. The Other Woman is a fun and entertaining domestic suspense thriller with some very unlikable characters. The kind you just love to hate and the kind the can cause you to question them and this created some discussion for us. Our favorite character here t...
  • Sara
    "The Other Woman is an addictive, fast-paced psychological thriller" No, no it's not! Nothing was fast-paced and it surely wasn't a thriller. It was just a story about three crazy people and I honestly can't say who annoyed me the most. Every other chapter I just rolled my eyes, I was bored and everything felt like a damn cliché. The last few chapters - just no! Overall I didn't care for any of them and lately I just can't catch a break with the...

As she retrieves tea, Pammie purposely leaves open her photo album, with a picture of Adam and another smiling woman staring up from the pages.
