My thoughts ya’ll:
About 3 years ago, I stumbled across this story called Gringa by an author named Eve Rabi. It seemed like an interesting storyline so I read it. Eve’s writing made me devour Gringa. I literally read all of her other books available at the time in a week. Cooking and showering went to the back burner and acknowledging my husband was an after thought. Then I find out about this new book, The Other Woman. I of course binge read it in a few days.
Fast forward to now, and I have the privilege of having Eve follow me on my social media platforms. She tells me she wants a blogger’s review on The Other Woman. It had been several years since I had read it, so in order to give an honest review, I had to reread it (Not that I need an excuse to read a really good book).This is what I thought…the second time around.
It’s un-putdownable. I do not remember being so anxious and disgusted with the villainess the last time I read this book. Eve Rabi knows how to make you hate or love a character and you for sure will hate…I mean hate Scarlett. She’s narcissistic, selfish, self centered, and a cold calculating biotch, yet also kind of entertaining and pretty funny…although I hate to admit it. The terrible thing is you know there are women out there just like her that will stop at nothing to get what they want. But I digress, Scarlett is so well written, you have steam coming out of your ears. The lengths she goes to to get Bradley are disgusting and intriguing all at the same time.
That’s just the first part of the book though. The woman she wrongs finally gets some payback. You’re cheering for Rival the entire time. All of Eve’s character’s are so well developed. The reason I gave the book a 4.5 instead of a 5 is because the cheating scenes made my stomach churn. You’re hoping that Bradley wakes up and smells the coffee, but he doesn’t and it can be hard to read at times. DO NOT let that deter you. The Other Woman is clever, funny, heart wrenching, and you absolutely cannot put it down. You will binge and you will immediately want to read the rest of Eve’s books. Like Derailed, the sequel to The Other Woman. So go on, prepare yourself to read this psychological thriller of love and the other woman.
Why you should read it:
As I said before, The Other Woman is un-putdownable. You want to read more and more and faster and faster the further into the book you get. The funny and fast paced writing makes you devour the pages.
Want to learn about Arena and Bear, Ritchie and what happened between he and Liefie, or the finale to The Other Woman? Read the books in this order: Payback, One Way or Another, My Wife’s Lil Secret, The Other Woman, then Derailed. Even if you read The Other Woman first, you won’t be lost. I’ve read all of them and they are all awesome and just as riveting.
