Book: you are mine
Author: Miranda Rijks
Genre: psychological thriller
Rating: 4 STARS
Rupert has spent years searching for his perfect wife. Now he’s found her.
Her name is Charlotte Aldridge and she’s wonderful. A talented artist, modest and beautiful, she’s everything he ever dreamed of. Her hair, her eyes, her mouth – every little detail is perfect.
Rupert is confident that when they meet, she’ll fall in love with him just as he has with her. After all, he’s a wealthy British aristocrat. And he’s handsome – the relentless gym workouts and extensive plastic surgery have seen to that.
But what if Charlotte can’t see that they fit perfectly, that they’re meant for each other? Well, Rupert can be very persuasive. His father taught him certain methods which are extremely effective. Methods that can turn the most determined, ‘I don’t’ into a meek and submissive, ‘I do’….
I hadn’t planned on reading this book but Emma needed some extra people to read and review this book so I raised my hand and boy am I glad. This book was so creepy!
We follow four perspectives Charlotte, Rupert, Simone and Jodi across a dual timeline. Rupert is the main focus within this story as we follow him both as a teenager through Simone’s perspective and Rupert in present day.
You are mine is a truly haunting and chilling psychological thriller which kept me on edge, gave me goosebumps and freaked me out a hell of a lot.
I really enjoyed reading Rupert’s perspective because it gave me a deeper and stronger insight into a person with the mental illness of limerence. I had never heard of this type of illness but it does happen so it was so creepy but made me empathise a little more with this unwell man.
Unfortunately I couldn’t give this book a five star rating because I did guess the huge major plot point very early on within this story but all the same I enjoyed my time reading this story and definitely would recommend it to those who love w good creepy psychological thriller.
