First date by Sue Watson *Blog Tour*

I am once again so incredibly happy to be a part of the blog tour for this brilliant book!.

Book Description:

She’s been waiting her whole life to meet a man like Alex. But he’s been waiting too. And once he has her, he’ll never let her go…

Hannah has done everything to make sure her life is safe and secure. A long way from her unstable childhood growing up in foster care, she’s content with her sweet, little, messy apartment and her satisfying job as a social worker. She quietly worries that, aged 36, she might never fall in love. But otherwise her life is where she wants it to be.

Until, encouraged by her best friend to join a dating app, she meets Alex. He’s irresistibly handsome. He loves the same music as her. The same food as well. They both dream of travelling the world but agree they’d be equally happy escaping to a cottage by the beach in Devon. Both of them would love to own a Labrador one day. It’s like he’s made for her. It’s like he’s too good to be true.

Hannah’s friends aren’t so sure about him. But Hannah thinks he’s perfect.

Which is good. Because Alex knows she’s perfect for him too. In fact, she’s exactly the girl he’s been looking for…

And nothing Hannah’s done to make her life safe will ever be enough.

A gripping and suspenseful psychological thriller about dark obsession and internet dating. Fans of The Wife Between UsFriend Request and Gone Girl will adore this unputdownable twisted love story.

My Thoughts:

This book was a real page turner from beginning to end. I truly found it impossible to put down and finished it within a day!.

The story follows Hannah Weston, a woman who, after dealing with a difficult breakup decides – with some encouragement from her best friend/co-worker Jas – to try the world of online dating. And this is where she meets Alex. He has a great job and a wonderful house, he quite honestly seems too perfect, so Hannah feels very lucky to be dating him.

The story is so perfectly written, with a plot that is full of twists and turns along with the perfect level of suspense which grasps your attention fully. There are so many interesting characters all with their own complex lives, and the ways in which their lives intertwine throughout the book was wonderful.

I obviously dont want to spoil this book for anyone… but I will say, that the twist at the end of this book was one I truly did NOT see coming! It was truly incredible and perfectly finished off a fascinating book.

Lastly, I would like to thank Sue Watson, Sarah Hardy and Netgalley for my ARC of this book in return for my honest review.
