You want me.

You love me.

You need me.

You’ll be the death of me.

It is you.

Of course it is you.

Always it is you.

Clarissa is becoming more and more frightened of her colleague, Rafe. He won’t leave her alone, and he refuses to take no for an answer. He is always there.

Being selected for a jury service is a relief. The courtroom is a safe haven,  a place where Rafe can’t be. But as a violent tale of kidnap and abuse unfolds, Clarissa begins to see parallels between her own situation and that of the young woman on the witness stand.

Realizing that she bears the burden of proof, Clarissa unravels the twisted, macabre fairytale that Rafe has spun around them and discovers that the ending he envisions  is more terrifying than she could have imagined.

You left me no choice, Clarissa

I just want to take you home, Clarissa

I know your darkest secrets, Clarissa.

My Review

A Creepy psychological thriller. I can promise all readers who love a psychological thriller that you will not be able to put The Book Of You down. My heart was thumping as I read chapter after chapter. Rafe is a disturbing colleague who is madly in love with Clarissa. But Clarissa is not interested in Rafe and tries to make this clear. Rafe simple can not understand that Clarissa does not want anything to do with him. Unsettling scenes starts Rafe tracks down Clarissa every where she goes. He hides in the shadows where he can not been seen jumps out and inject his love for Clarissa. Clarissa remembers the rules keep your voice sharp in tone and say I do not want anything to do with you. Presents start to arrive at Clarissa’s flat from Rafe in hope he will get Clarissa’s attention. The police are not interested in Clarissa’s pleas. At last a life line appears where she can get rid of Rafe following her. Clarissa is asked to do a seven week juror service which means Rafe can not go in the court room or can he?. The court case is about violence and rape where the court twist the truth around. The case is similar to what is happening to Clarissa and she needs to prepare for the future there for Clarissa decides to write down everything that Rafe does to her. After all Rafe is messing with her mind. The Book Of you is a story that makes you stop and think. I highly recommend The Book Of You that is Enriched with believable scenes.
