Book Description:

She Loves Me
Who lives? Who dies? Who’s next? The clock is ticking.

She Loves Me Not
If Helen can’t solve this deadly puzzle then more blood will be shed. But any mistake and it might be her own …

My Thoughts:

Love Me Not has to be one of my most anticipated reads of 2017.

It was great to catch up with Helen again. She seems quite melancholy in this story. I think her time in prison has certainly given her food for thought and she seems to be struggling to make sense of it all. If you haven’t read the rest in the series yet (where have you been??) I think it certainly would benefit to have read the others first.

I have no idea how the author comes up with these gripping story lines but each book just has me wowed every time. I literally can not turn the pages quick enough to see what the out come is going to be. It felt slightly like the film Natural Born Killers to start with, with a couple going round killing random people. It certainly had me well and truly hooked from the start.

As much as Emilia, the ever annoying journalist, gets on my nerves, I actually really enjoyed reading about her in this one. It’s always great to have a mixture of characters with some that you love to hate.

Love Me Not is with out a doubt going to be a big hit with fans of the series. The author has yet again delivered a gripping, fast paced read that I for one devoured in one sitting. I hope the author takes it as a compliment but for me Helen is the UK version of James Patterson’s Alex Cross series, which is another series I love.

Another belter of a read!

My thanks to Netgalley and Penguin UK – Michael Joseph for an advanced copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Love Me Not is out on the 18th of May and available to purchase from Amazon.
