obsessed with his professor and the woman herself With each passing year as she gets older, Kate Youngblood feels less and less desirable Eyes no longer follow her as she walks across a restaurant She doesn t feel the heavy gaze of men s admiration Recently separated from her unfaithful husband, she s unsure if she ll ever feel the kind of passion they shared again until Sam Gist comes along He s intelligent, talented, and young He looks at her in a way she thought she wouldn t be looked at again, and she feels desired onceProblem He s her student and he s been watching her longer than she thinks I loved getting into Sam s head He s a fascinating character You almost feel bad for him at first, the 22 year old obsessed with an older woman ever since he read her first book It s not long before his obsession starts to escalate Both characters seem to feel like they re superior to other people, but Kate still manages to be likable 38 and child free, she has just lost her husband and feels as if she s losing her best friend because she s having a child and her life is changing At first author Kate is intrigued by Sam s talent, convinced that he s the most promising young writer she s taught in her years at the college It s not long before she feels herself being drawn to him for other reasons, completely naive to the fact that he s been planning this for a long time.This one kept me up late It s beautifully written and very descriptive, easy to sink into and get lost in I loved getting the perspective of both the stalked and the stalker, knowing who they both are A lot of times when we get the perspective of a stalker, he s always hiding in the shadows and we re guessing who he is In this story, we re perfectly aware, just wondering what he ll do next and what lengths he ll go to I received an ARC of this book from St Martin s Press and Net Galley, thank you My review is honest and unbiased. 4.5 creepily addictive stars Wow this was disturbingly good I devoured this twisted story with heart pounding intensity I was fascinated by the dynamic between the two main characters, Kate and Sam Kate is a creative writing professor and well known novelist and Sam is her student The relationship between these two had me glued to the pages, feeling the tension, anxiety, obsession and paranoia The author, Jody Gehrman, did an outstanding job with the narratives The

The writing was superb The language does get explicit at times, but I found it perfectly suited this dark and mesmerizing stalker story There is also an undercurrent of humour throughout that lightened the dark tone of the novel.I read this with my Traveling Sisters and we all LOVED it This is Gehrman s debut suspense novel and it is definitely a winner in our eyes To find this review,

he is not there solely to be the best writer He s been watching her, wanting her, and has been working his way to her for years This is a gripping novel exploring intense obsession and illicit attention What you desire may be the most dangerous thing of all Sam s writing has a lot of dark themes with twisted plots How far will he let his obsession go and how far will Kate allow it This was a very fast read I thought the author did a great job on the characters They were very well developed I really got to know the characters very well I was able to get in the mind of Sam s He is an extremely creepy psychopath and also a sociopath and does not have any empathy The author really did a great job of his character It kept me turning the pages to see what he would do next He was full of hate Sam s obsession was very scary He hates his mother but he had a terrible childhood Some of Sam s thoughts and one liners are jaw dropping I would not want to meet Sam in real life.I thought Kate was a very complicated character I didn t care for her so much It just took her too long to realize what a sociopath Sam was She just seemed to love his attention and enjoyed him watching her Kate had her own obsession She just thrives on attention She didn t seem like she could make her own mind up or make good decisions One minute she wanted Sam and the next minute she didn t want him I didn t like her behavior I did find this to be an entertaining story There were parts that I loved and other parts that I didn t care so much for It did keep me turning the pages and had to find out what was going to happen next This was a great dark psychological thriller It was a Traveling Sister read and I really enjoyed reading everyone s thoughts It was a fun discussion I recommend this to those that like a creepy psychological thriller.I want to thank Netgalley, St Martin s Press and Jody Gehrman for the copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Psychological character study

starsOverall star rating 3.5The narrative alternates between Sam and Kate s POV s.Sam is a 22 year old student in Kate s creative writing course After reading Kate s first novel when he was 17, Sam made it his life s mission to meet Kate and make her fall in love with him He creates this epic fantasy in which the two of them will fall in love, move to NYC and become famous writers But Sam s fanatasy is far removed from reality He enrolls in Kate s class, and begins obsessively watching and stalking her Kate s in a vulnerable position Recently divorced, finds Sam s attention exhilarating She s aware that he s watching her and basks in the glory of being seen by a younger man She begins craving his attentionand , to the point where the two develop an inappropriate relationship.But crazy, obsessive stalkers can only function normally for so long TheSam immerses himself in Kate s world, thehis obsession grows to the point where goes off the rails and commits several crimes all in the name of helping Kate Even though Kate knows there s something off about Sam, she still wants him the way he sees her is like a drug The push and pull between Sam and Kate grows redundant I loved reading Sam s chapters his voice is cold, creepy, and captivating But Kate s chapters were irksome, as her character lacks the dynamism of Sam s This is a tension filled, fast paced, but uneven read But I would still recommend if only to experience the brilliance of Sam s character I won a copy of this book from a Goodreads giveaway 4.5 StarsI was lost in the creepy, open barren coulee with three of my Traveling Sisters reading Watch Me We settled in a nice grassy sunny open spot all set to dive into this story of obsession We soon felt a little exposed and uneasy as we were drawn to the depth of Sam Gist s intense, obsession for older damaged Kate Youngblood We started to sweat with the extreme unnerving creepiness we started to feel as we were pulled deeper and deeper into Sam s mind The

extreme unnerving creepiness we started to feel as we were pulled deeper and deeper into Sam s mind The hairs on the back of our necks started to rise and we wanted to run out of the heat and find a shadier less exposed part of the coulee We became so fascinated with the story we couldn t move but kept looking over our shoulder with an escape route in mind Watch Me is a highly entertaining, fascinating and disturbing story of the most intense obsession some of us have ever read Our excitement and uneasiness had us hooked on this one from the very start and we didn t let go until the very end The story is told by both Sam s and Kate s point of view We had some different reactions to Kate that lead to an interesting discussion for us Most of us enjoyed Sam s point of viewand felt his POV wasinteresting than Kate s Even though we were in the same coulee with this one some of us ended up on different sides of the coulee We highly recommend Thank you to NetGalley, St Martin s Press

Okay, so the chemistry between Sam and Kate was steamyNot just because they were physically attracted to each other but because they unknowingly complimented one another by sharing the same gritty, raw, and selfish perspective of life Just in varying degrees Sam reminded me of a slightly watered down version of Ryan in Ker Dukey s Empathy They shared that same kind of dark humor, charm, dangerous edge, view spoiler including the serial killer tendencies, too hide spoiler and magnetic draw Some of Sam s thoughts I move the binoculars up to your face I m not a pervert, a Peeping Tom I am Romeo, gazing up at Juliet by moonlight And yes, okay, so I m crouched in a urine scented alley That doesn t make my mission any less noble To study you Understand you Observe you in your natural habitat The less PG rated version of Sam s thoughts view spoiler You stop to talk to that disgusting little desiccated poet What s her name I pry it from my memory Larkin I bet her pussy smells like cat piss and fermented cheese I bet her poems smell like she pulled them from her fetid cunt.Yes, Sam had some foul and illogical thoughts, but he was hella entertaining hide spoiler I loved the female protagonist in this story I didn t agree with all of her viewpoints but she kept me chuckling from page to page with her unapologetic ways of thinking Some of Kate s thoughts on motherhood It s not my fault every woman rounding the corner of thirty goes crazy and gives up everything for a tiny shit factory Being the only sane one might make me lonely, but it shouldn t earn me pity from the bitches who lose their minds Kids find me compelling Their chubby hands reach for me in grocery stores, in parks They sense life in me Surrounded all day by their parents rotting husks, their nannies dead eyes, they see me and grasp for the living.So why not five stars I would ve rated this story higher if there were graphic scenes mixed in, but this book was a solid four star read up until the 97% mark An incident occurred there that had me rolling my eyes with disbelief, disappointment, and shame for being fully invested in these characters, only to watch the ending amount tothat Disappointment doesn t begin to cover how I felt after reading that scene, but hopefully other readers will feel differently view spoiler It felt wholly inconsistent for a character who was articulate in planning and patient in scheming to resort to that meh action scene And then Kate s response with the chair Really, though hide spoiler Minor issues It took me several chapters of reading to adjust to the writing style because Sam s POV read like a private journal addressed solely to Kate After a while, I didn t mind I also strongly disliked how Sam addressed the reader at the start of this story as well as at the 39% mark I m not a fan of narrators speaking directly to the reader, but that s just me In addition, Kate and Sam sometimes used the exact same terms phrases within their inner monologues view spoiler For example, they both used desiccated, I d brain, code of honor, and multiple references to a dancer s body, etc Both Sam and Kate were writers Why were those very noticeable terms popping up in their individual narratives hide spoiler Fav lines in Kate s thoughts No wonder Fifty Shades of Shit charged to the top of the bestseller lists Young American sensibilities are as refined as raw sewage Overall, I enjoyed these charactersNetGalley ARC kindly provided by St Martin s Press in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 Obsession meets sexual attraction.This novel gets into

life with Kate No matter what I thought the author did great job with Kate s character, but Sam was lacking some development and his thoughts were somewhat repetitive and limited to his obsession with Kate It is fast paced and starts to get repetitive, but it really picks up in the last third I liked the end, but also didn t think it was realistic This has been compared to You by Caroline Kepnes, but it reminded meof Exquisite by Sarah Stovell Although I enjoyed this one much.I think fans of stalker stories will enjoy this one and it wasn t overly dark or graphic in my opinion I liked it and

assuming is an intelligent woman because she is an English professor doesn t seem to clue into this when it seems fairly obvious and then even when she does clue in she seemsflattered than anything else, I think this just encouraged Sam even.Ironically I really actually like Samthan Kate in this book, he did have a certain charm to him Please keep in mind I have extremely bad taste in men Kate was really hard for me to read and very hard for me to relate to, I almost would have preferred a book from only Sam s perspective perhaps then I would haveempathy for Kate The very ending to this book was ironic and perfect This book definitely is not for everybody, but if you enjoy twisted, disturbed, and interesting characters, I d recommend this to you i d like to thank Net Galley and St
