She needs me. She just doesn’t know it yet.
Dalia is the only one who can fix what’s broken in me. I knew it the moment I saw her.
That red hair, those wounded eyes, the irresistible curves…she’s perfect.
She will be mine.
But first, I have to get rid of her boyfriend.
Don’t feel sorry for him, though. He’s no hero. In truth, he’s a villain.
Good thing I’m better at it than he is.
Because Dalia needs rescuing as much as I do. One day, she’ll thank me for what I’m about to do.
Then she’ll give me everything…
Following Her, book 1 in The HER Series, is a dark, gritty, contemporary romance that’s perfect for fans of YOU. So, if you enjoy a sexy antihero who is willing to do anything—go to any lengths—to get what he wants, then James Draper is your next book boyfriend. Download today and get ready to fall for the stalker/kidnapper of your dreams.
I’ve been going back and forth between 2 and 3 stars with my rating for this book and eventually settled on the middle with 2.5. I really wish I had liked the story more but as always with my lower ratings I will talk about the things I dislike but also about the things I liked.
As you can probably guess from the title and synopsis, Following Her is a stalker romance (that’s a thing, right?). Without giving too much away, the story is told in the points of view of Dalia and James. When James comes across Dalia he’s reminded instantly about someone from his past and is totallt obsessed with Dalia even though she has a boyfriend (who is an actual bastard) and starts following her.
This book isn’t the darkest I’ve ever come across but it does go into really dark territory if you ask me. You can’t say that James is a good guy because he definitely isn’t because of his stalking tendencies. This is something I’m used to with this genre and usually don’t dislike but I just couldn’t like him at all. I do want to say that I prefer him by far to Dalia’s scumbag abusive boyfriend so there’s that at least.
Too be honest, I wasn’t a fan of Dalia either. I might be wrong about this but I don’t get the impression that the author wrote either of them to be liked. I like flaws in characters and you always do want to like the main characters in the book you’re reading but with Dalia and James I just wasn’t feeling it, sadly enough.
As I said there things I liked so I’m going to sum them up here:
-Dalia being a plus sized model. (yes queen!)
-James wanting to get rid of Dalia’s boyfriend. (I don’t even care what’ll happen to that guy)
-At 71 pages it’s a short book so it’s easy to read. (I only picked up my Kindle twice before finishing)
-The cliffhanger made me intrigued as to what will happen next. (yes I like cliffhangers sometimes)
