Book Blurb

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.

When you hear that Sue Watson is releasing a new book, you know you are going to be getting one that will take you on a wild roller coaster ride full of twists and turns and First Date is no different. In fact, I will go as far as to say that First Date is her most twisted read yet. For Sue’s last release, The Sister In-Law, I said in my review that it was her best work to date, but First Date now holds that title!

First Date will have you hooked, completely addicted and will get you thinking about your own first dates. If you are single, after reading this, you may never want to go on another first date again! If you are happily married reading this, you will thank your lucky stars that you are no longer part of the dating scene!

The story plays out like an episode of the crime show Obsession Dark Desires and just had my skin crawling and feeling uncomfortable the further that I got into the book. Sue Watson has done a superb job of making you feel this way, upping the tension and suspense within each chapter in the lead up to an ending that will absolutely blow your mind! Sue Watson you are one very wicked woman! Very wicked indeed! 

As always Sue’s writing is on point and she is just one of the reasons that I love the psychological thriller genre so much. She knows how to get into her characters and readers heads and her stories are always fresh and exciting. Most importantly, when it comes to her finales, she never disappoints. They are always jaw dropping with you thinking about the book long after you have finished reading it.

Sue Watson has really delivered with First Date. It is creepy, gripping, a real page turner in every sense of the word and she just nails everything in it, from the story, the characters and to the way it has been executed. With all of these factors on her side, this just makes this book one cracking read! It was an absolute pleasure to read and review First Date, which I highly recommend.

Thank you to Sue Watson, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of First Date, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play, Barnes & Noble & Waterstones if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.
