The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton, 3.5 Stars

Repeat after me. “Spring is coming. Spring is coming. Spring is coming.” Because it is coming in 2 days! Whether the weather realizes it or not.

On Sunday morning, we awoke to a perfect blanket of white snow. Which was confusing to me only because I had arrived home earlier that morning around 1:30 am (this never happens usually) and there wasn’t a hint of snow in the air. Hmmm.

It was a little nice while it lasted–which was about two hours before the 45 degree temps melted it all away. It’s been a winter though. And worse for my friends in Michigan and Wisconsin. I’m ready for flip flops and green grass, flowers and sunshine.

Because that means reading outside on the patio with a margarita. Ahh.

On to today’s review. I read The Perfect Girlfriend in one sitting on Saturday morning because I’m just that lazy. But really, I love reading the day away on the weekends. My husband might love it slightly less.

From the Publisher:

Juliette loves Nate.

She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline so she can keep a closer eye on him.

They are meant to be.

The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back.

She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.

True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain…

My Review:

Our girl, Juliette is a true psycho. Think really wants to get married to the man of her dreams, but on speed. As the book opens, Juliette is in training to become a flight attendant following her break-up with her boyfriend, Nate, who is a pilot. Yup, not a coincidence that she is planning on working for the same airline.

Not only that, but when he breaks up with her, he offers to pay her rent for six months somewhere else. Tell me that doesn’t raise a red flag right away. A guy has got to know a girl is seriously unhinged to want to get rid of her that badly that he will pay her rent somewhere else? And they were only together 7 months.

So Juliette moves, and embarks on a brand new life (albeight one that mirrors Nate’s), and stays quiet because “revenge is a dish best served cold.” As we watch Juliette carefully construct every single move she makes to lead her and Nate back together, I found it surprising she is able to appear so functional and normal to others–well, then again, she only has one friend.

Although it didn’t blow me away, I found The Perfect Girlfriend to be a great fast read. It kept my attention and left me wanting for more each time I would set it down. I do think that Nate was kind of a complete idiot to allow himself to become so entangled. I’m not sure many men would be as nice about everything that happens as he was.

It really is amazing the lengths Juliette goes to. Ever had a boyfriend accuse you of being psycho? Send him this book! Although that may just make you look worse:)
