I’m reviewing Behind Her Eyes. FYI – you can still get this book or any of the other February selections for your first month!


Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough – Retail Value $25.99 (On Amazon for $19.86)

Book Summary from Amazon:

Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.

When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.

And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before.

David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?

As Louise is drawn into David and Adele’s orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can’t guess how wrong―and how far a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.

In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling.


If you are looking for a book that gets your attention from the first page – this is it! I’m several chapters in, and I already don’t want to put it down. (I have a feeling I’ll be finishing this book over the weekend!)



This book came with a bookmark, too:



Verdict:  I’m very pleased with the value of my Book of the Month subscription. The prices are better than Amazon for new hardcover releases, and they always feature a good mix of popular new books. And I love that you can skip any month you aren’t interested in, and you can also buy books from previous months as add-ons for $9.99.

  1. I just signed up! The reviews you ladies left about this book got me interested to check it out. I think I’m already hooked to BOTM and I just signed up. Three books caught my attention and that’s only for the first month….oh boy!!

  2. I got The Possession and Pachinko, and I added on The Couple Next Door. BOTM has several books in their back months that were up for Goodreads Choice Awards, so I’m trying to pick them up a couple at a time!

  3. Please get a killer BOTM coupon for galentines day! I’ve missed this sub!

  4. I ended up ordering 3 books this month – it was my first month with BotM & I just couldn’t decide. I chose this one, The Possessions, and Perfect Little World! Let’s hope I have more restraint in the future 🙂

  5. I read this book in one night-all I can say is, you have no idea what is coming. I was floored.

    • Can’t wait! I gt this book; should be getting here soon!

    • I almost did – had to stop myself after midnight when I realized I probably had another couple hours of reading and had to be up at 6am for work. Can’t wait to finish it when I get home – glad I didn’t make plans tonight!

    • Yall let me know what you think when you finish!

  6. Love this subscription box!! ❤️❤️
