She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.
True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain…

Have you ever read a book and just instantly thought “This chick is crazy!” That is my first impression of The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton. Juliette is off the walls, delusional to the extreme. The Perfect Girlfriend had me completely creeped out almost the entire time.
The book is all about Juliette and her love for Nate. Nate is a pilot and Juliette becomes a flight attendant to be closer to him and to stage a random bump in with him so she can rekindle their romance. Nate may or may not fall for it, but everything she does before and after has alarm bells going, at least for me.
I’ve read stories that involve stalkers or obsessive relationships, but The Perfect Girlfriend was the top of them all. Karen Hamilton wrote this with such precision and knowledge, it almost had me laughing at the kind of research she had to do to plot out this level of crazy. Juliette’s character is annoying most of the time, but sometimes I caught myself feeling bad for her, which is crazy in itself. She does not deserve any sympathy.
Psychological Thriller lovers across the board should definitely check out The Perfect Girlfriend. It’s nerve wracking, intense, and bone chilling to watch Juliette hunt Nate. Recommended to all.
