    A compelling psychological thriller

    Samantha, a university student in London, becomes involved in a relationship with Peter, a professor at the same university. In her early twenties, she believes Peter to be in his late 30's. Her mother and friends warm her about becoming involved with a man so much older, but she is smitten. Samantha becomes pregnant and moves into Peter's large home, and with time he becomes more and more controlling. When Samantha becomes aware that he has had a number of bad previous relationships with women she grows increasingly concerned. Samantha accepts Peter's marriage proposal, and when searching for his passport for their upcoming wedding trip she discovers he is ten years older than she believed. To say more would spoil the read!

    Pretty good

    This is pretty good. Nothing too original with the plot, but engrossing anyway. The publisher should take better care with editing, as there are numerous spelling errors.

    A great read

    When Samantha meets Peter, he is everything that she could want in a man. He is older, charming, handsome, experienced, says all of the rights things, and only has eyes for her. Lacking in confidence and self esteem, Peter makes her feel like the only woman in the world, but there is something that feels not quite right to her but she pushes it aside and the relationship moves full steam ahead. But it isn’t long until the cracks in the relationship start forming when Samantha moves into his home not long after their relationship begins. Peter’s whole demeanour changes and Samantha starts to pick up little hints of his controlling personality and his temper, when he enforces strict rules of when to eat, sleep, the way things always have to be in their place at all times and even when she is to shower, which is all to fit in with the way he likes it! After giving birth to their daughter, Samantha thinks it is time to get out of the house and wants to put her university degree to good use. After some reluctance on Peter’s part, he helps her get a part time job teaching a 12 week writing adult education course. This is not Samantha’s first choice, but Peter persuades her otherwise, even going as far as overriding her lesson plans to ones that he comes up with which he thinks are better! Things take a turn, when Samantha starts to receive notes mixed up in her students work hinting that Peter is not really the man she thinks he is and that she is not the only woman that Peter has controlled over the years. Trying to still see the best in him, Samantha tries to defend his actions but she soon has to face facts that Peter’s treatment of women over the years may now have come back to haunt him, and her life as well as their daughters could be in danger! Do I recommend this book: Absolutely! There is one word to describe how I felt when reading this book and that is suffocated! The character of Peter made me cringe with his domineering ways and I could really feel how Samantha was feeling. Susie did a great job at conveying this and had me reading this in one sitting, as there was no way I was going to stop until I had finished it! I really loved this book and look forward to more of Susie’s work in the future!
