Book Review Watch Me by Jody Gehrman
Title: Watch Me
Author: Jody Gehrman
Stars: 3 1/2 stars
Readers are giving two Points Of View or (POV) Sam man who is 22 and Kate 38.
Sam is a talented student of Kate who is a crime writer. Readers who enjoy or love psychological thrillers won't be disappointed with this story. Sam is Creepy and his ideas and the way his mind works will chill readers bones. The beginning of the story start off with readers needing more and picks up half way though the book. Sam is Creepy and will keep readers up at night.
This is one book I would keep the lights on while I read it at night.
Thank you to Netgalley and St. Martin Press for the advance copy.
Kate Youngblood is disappearing. Muddling through her late 30s as a creative writing professor at Blackwood college, she’s dangerously close to never being noticed again. The follow-up novel to her successful debut tanked. Her husband left her for a woman ten years younger. She’s always been bright, beautiful, independent and a little wild, but now her glow is starting to vanish. She’s heading into an age where her eyes are less blue, her charm worn out, and soon no one will ever truly look at her, want to know her, again.
Sam Grist is Kate’s most promising student. An unflinching writer with razor-sharp clarity who gravitates towards dark themes and twisted plots, his raw talent is something Kate wants to nurture into literary success. But he’s not there solely to be the best writer. He’s been watching her. Wanting her. Working his way to her for years.
As Sam slowly makes his way into Kate’s life, they enter a deadly web of dangerous lies and forbidden desire. But how far will his fixation go? And how far will she allow it?
A gripping novel exploring intense obsession and illicit attraction, Jody Gehrman introduces a world where what you desire most may be the most dangerous thing of all.
