Twisting the self-help books she’s read, she takes the mantra ‘in charge of you own destiny’ to new extremes.She is the perfect girlfriend. And she'll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants - the perfect boyfriend, the perfect life, the perfect ending.An utterly compelling voice that hooks you into Juliette’s world, a unique insight into the face behind the air hostess uniform from an author with first hand experience, and ultimately a completely page-turning experience make THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND one to watch
Juliette is in love with Nate. Head over heels, white picket fence and soulmate kind of love. Deeply, Madly, Truly. Well madly is true, because Juliette is madder than a March hare and Nate has no clue that they are destined to be together forever.

She has a plan to convince Nate that she is the perfect woman for him, and nothing is out of bounds to achieve her goal. She neither hears nor accepts the word no when it comes to her future and her plans.

Juliette pretends to be just a normal gal, and pretends to be sane. She keeps up the pleasant exterior, but now and again the true Juliette shines through, which makes some of her friends take a step back and it is the reason Nate broke up with her in the first place. Her place of comfort is to lie instinctively when questioned and cornered. Juliette really does not understand boundaries at all.

This is the kind of story that breaks into your house, hides under your bed and creeps up on you from behind when you least expect it. Hamilton has created the kind of character that makes the reader feel as if they are right there watching the stalker stalk their prey, and she isn't afraid to give her readers an unconventional ending. The story begins with Juliette, ends with Juliette and is owned completely by Juliette.

I enjoyed the fact the author picked a woman to be the ex who refuses to let go, usually a man is cast in these types of roles. Nobody boils a bunny quite like a lady does. In fact I think all bunnies should run in the opposite direction if they see Juliette coming.

It is a popcorn munching, nail biting kind of read, with an audacious main character, who lets herself be deterred by nothing and no one. Hamilton plays it bold with the narcissistic Juliette. There is no room for mercy or forgiveness, it is selfish and self-absorbed, which makes it a really compelling read. Kudos to Hamilton for pulling it off.

Buy The Perfect Girlfriend at Amazon Uk or go to Goodreads for any other retailer.
