  • Perils of internet dating!

    Hannah is looking for her perfect man and tries internet dating thanks to her best friend. She meets Mr Perfect, Alex who appears to be everything she is looking for. So many red flags that Hannah didn't seem to take enough notice off. I got extremely frustrated with her and was willing her not to be so gullible. It seemed so far fetched at times that a woman could be so stupid but I guess in love you can be blinkered in real life! A good twist at the end, which had entered my head, but I guess I'm always looking for twists in a psychological thriller. This was a great end to the book. If this doesn't put you off internet dating, nothing will! Thank you to netgalley and the publisher for an arc.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great Read

    As soon as I started reading this book I knew it was going to be a train wreck......the kind you can't look away from. When you meet someone on a First Date and everything seems to be perfect you should realize that it just might be too good to be true. For every red flag that pops up, Hannah (our questionable heroine) comes up with a justification. My initial thought was that I wasn't crazy about Hannah (I’m yelling at her in my mind). Then I thought I didn't like the book. But, when I realize that perhaps this is the author's intention, she is succeeding because I cannot turn the pages fast enough. That doesn't happen if you don't like the book. I keep hoping that Hannah smartens up. Every time you think things can't get worse with her boyfriend, it does. And, I’m still mentally yelling at Hannah! Alex (the boyfriend) gives a whole new meaning to passive aggressive. Two flawed characters in a dysfunctional relationship. And then there is the ending.......totally Hitchcock-ish! (is that even a word?)

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A chilling read

    When you hear that Sue Watson is releasing a new book, you know you are going to be getting one that will take you on a wild roller coaster ride full of twists and turns and First Date is no different. In fact, I will go as far as to say that First Date is her most twisted read yet. For Sue’s last release, The Sister In-Law, I said in my review that it was her best work to date, but First Date now holds that title! First Date will have you hooked, completely addicted and will get you thinking about your own first dates. If you are single, after reading this, you may never want to go on another first date again! If you are happily married reading this, you will thank your lucky stars that you are and no longer part of the dating scene! The story plays out like an episode of the crime show Obsession Dark Desires and just had my skin crawling and feeling uncomfortable the further that I got into the book. Sue Watson has done a superb job of making you feel this way, upping the tension and suspense within each chapter in the lead up to an ending that will absolutely blow your mind! Sue Watson you are one very wicked woman! Very wicked indeed! As always Sue’s writing is on point and she is just one of the reasons that I love the psychological thriller genre so much. She knows how to get into her characters and readers heads and her stories are always fresh and exciting. Most importantly, when it comes to her finales, she never disappoints. They are always jaw dropping with you thinking about the book long after you have finished reading it. Sue Watson has really delivered with First Date. It is creepy, gripping, a real page turner in every sense of the word and she just nails everything in it, from the story, the characters and to the way it has been executed. With all of these factors on her side, this just makes this book one cracking read! It was an absolute pleasure to read and review First Date, which I highly recommend.

  • Dream Date?

    hirty-six-year-old Hannah is an insecure, sweet girl, still hoping to find the man of her dreams. Her friends encourage her to go on a dating app, and there is Alex. He’s everything she’s ever dreamed of – good looking, considerate, treats her like a queen, and seems to have the same hopes and dreams as she does. Hannah is VERY naïve and overlooks all kinds of red flags in their relationship, but no one can tell her anything negative about Alex. As their wedding day approaches, it becomes clear that Hannah is exactly what Alex has been looking for too, but not in a good way! A lot of the actions of Hannah were unbelievable, like those horror movies where the girl is about to enter the house, and you wanted to grab her and scream in her face! A good look at obsession, internet dating, and a twisted love. Thanks to the publisher, the author and NetGalley for my copy of The First Date.

  • Good twist at the end

    When Hannah meets Alex on a dating site and they turn out to be a perfect match, she is over the moon. They both want the exact same things in life. But then she begins to discover cracks in his "perfect" façade. Is he merely trying to paint a more rosy picture of himself and his life, or is he covering up something much more disturbing? I had a love/hate relationship with this book. I got so frustrated with Hannah for ignoring what I felt like were obvious lies. I felt like it made her seem less intelligent than she really was supposed to be. The book seemed to be going in a very obvious direction, so I was pleasantly surprised by the creepy twist at the end. I will say if you are expecting a suspenseful thriller, you will have to wait until the last quarter of the book before you get to that part. The first 75% is just good story with a creepy stalker vibe.

    Thanks for your feedback!
