#BlogTour #Review – The Life She Wants – J. M. Hewitt @jmhewitt @rararesources

Good Morning everyone,

I was very excited about reading this book and I’ve wanted to read something, anything for a long time. I will forewarn you, there will be swearing and I’m not even sorry. I hope you enjoy my review and remember, you’re more than welcome to leave me a comment.

Stay Safe

The Life She Wants

You want to save your marriage. She wants to destroy it.

Paula worries that her marriage to Tommy is hanging by a thread. She loves how safe her husband makes her feel, but lately, it seems like he’s pulling away from her, and he keeps avoiding a much-needed conversation about finally having children.

When Tommy suggests a cruise getaway for the two of them, Paula is thrilled. He’s fighting for this marriage, and he’s even promised that they will talk about growing their family. It’s Paula’s dream come true. Until the couple meets beautiful Anna.

From the moment Anna appears in their lives, things start to go wrong for Paula. She finds herself trapped in a sauna. Her hair is destroyed at the salon. Money goes missing from her cabin. At first, Paula thinks she’s paranoid in suspecting Anna is turning her dream holiday into a nightmare. But soon, it becomes clear that Paula may not be the only woman fighting for Tommy’s affections. 

How far will Anna go to get what she wants? What lines will Paula cross to protect her marriage? And whose dark past will return to destroy them first?

The Life She Wants is a suspenseful psychological thriller with a twist. Perfect for fans of Catherine Ryan Howard, Ruth Ware, and Lisa Jewell.

And here is the main even, my review of The Life She Wants. HOLY CRAP!! Why haven’t I read anything by this author before?!? One of my best friends has raved about her for a long time, but I never seemed to pick up a book. I tell you what though, I’m not looking back now, this book probably has 10 gold stars from me, I absolutely bloody loved it. Obviously I’ll try my hardest to not give anything away, as I think that spoils a book.

It was well written, scarily believable and could genuinely happen to anyone. I personally don’t think any of the characters were likeable as they all had too many faults. Tommy, he’s male and was only thinking with his ball brains. Paula was needy and a bit whiny. Anna (if that’s even her real name 😉 ) is a gold digging hoe lol. They were that unlikeable for me, it’s what genuinely made the book brilliant.

The cruise setting was fantastic as there was quite a bit of imagery and everyone was in close quarters with each other. Not very many places a person can hide on a cruise ship, but it seems a lot of things can be kept hidden on a cruise ship.

I’ve never read anything quite like this before and I’m going to be raving about this for a very long time and that twist at the end, oh… my…. god… I definitely wasn’t expecting that and it definitely threw me off, but not in a bad way.

If you haven’t pre-ordered or bought this novel, then I suggest you do it this very second! I promise you, you will not be disappointed… DO IT!!! Will I recommend this book? What do you think? HELL YES!!!

If you want to read more reviews for this novel then I suggest you head on over to the blogs mentioned above and show some love.
