Genres: Psychological Thriller
I have received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I had read the synopsis for Watch Me and found it very intriguing, which is why I got the book via Netgalley, but by the time I read it, I’d forgotten it already. And I think that is the best way to enjoy this book – not knowing where it’s heading! So if you want to be kept a little in the dark about the story of Watch Me, skip the next paragraph!
Watch Me is the story of Kate Youngblood, a creative writing professor who feels she is disappearing. She hasn’t written anything as good as her debut novel in years, she is reaching her forties and her friends have moved on with their lives with families, her ex is marrying the girl he cheated on her with. She feels nobody pays attention to her anymore until – Sam Grist. He is her student, with beautiful blue eyes, gorgeous body and studied expressions, his writing raw, dark, twisted and genius. But he has an ulterior motive to be in her class – he’s been watching her for a long time.
Watch Me is absolutely excellent! The plot is so intriguing and gripping, and it changes from Sam’s and Kate’s point of view, which I thought worked very nicely. Sam’s point of view is so unique – dark, raw, angry, sexy, poetic. It put me right into their minds, and I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end of the book.
The story is chilling, sexy and fascinating. It will make your blood go cold, but also, for a moment, you’ll want their “romance” to work out. It’s so full of passion and I was very impressed by it! It’s the best dark psychological thriller I’ve read since Gone Girl.
