The Other Woman by Sandie Jones
Emily is head over heels in love with Adam. From their first meeting, she senses he's the one. She's had her heart broken in the past, and this time it feels reel. There's only one problem: his mother.
Pammie is controlling, manipulative, and determined to keep them apart. Emily begins to wonder how far Pammie will go to keep her son tied to her apron strings. When she makes comments like "over my dead body," does she really plan to take things that far?
I have one major issue with this book. Don't get me wrong, I was hooked and loved every second of the roller coaster ride, but I just can't believe Emily stayed. From the point of the second meeting with Pammie, that would have been it. I would have walked away and let that woman win. No way would I have stayed and I can't believe Emily put up with as much as she did.
The Other Woman is very gripping. You can't believe what happens happens. When I reached the end, I was blown away. Riveting and shocking come to mind. I've heard from other readers they had the ending pegged. This time I didn't. I'm glad I didn't. I appreciated that moment of surprise. It made the book stand out.
