Book Review: The Other Girlfriend by Alex Stone

Blurb

She loves him…

Lizzie Green once loved Tom Murphy with a passion that bordered on obsession. All she wanted was his love to be returned. Then one night something terrible happened and Tom left Lizzie broken hearted. She swore she would never let him hurt her again….

She loves him not.

Now, ten years later, Tom turns up on Lizzie’s doorstep still as charming as ever. Lizzie knows he still has the power to break her heart and destroy her life again. But Lizzie can’t say no to him….

Can she?

Review

There is no doubt that The Other Girlfriend is a slow burner but is it worth the investment? I would say so.

I wanted to know what would happen at the end. There were times I felt like it was never going to be revealed, but the simple writing style and Lizzie’s likeable character made it easy to go on. Likewise, one cannot help but dislike Tom, which meant I also wanted to read on to make sure he got his comeuppance.

While the story itself wasn’t very taxing, the complexity of childhood trauma was presented very well. I can’t say I’ve ever experience post-traumatic stress disorder or agoraphobia, but they seem to be dealt with in a realistic, respectful manner.

Sounds like something you might be interested in? Pick up your copy of The Other Girlfriend here.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
