After taking a slight hiatus from reading, what better way to jump back in the game then by blowing dust off a unread book from my own collection?
I'm indeed a fan of this author, having read several of her other works with anticipation of reading several more. With that said, Diary of a Stalker wowed me. It thrilled and made me laugh out loud. I loved the narrative and thoroughly enjoyed reading the dramatic events from alternating points-of-view which equated to a much more unbiased read.
I couldn't quite figure out who was more crazy - Pilar or Xavier. I would have been more intrigued by this book had it held a "fatal attraction" theme and not a simple-minded, sex-charged one where Xavier continuously welcomed and provoked Pilar's odd behavior by willingly running back time and time again even after it was obvious that she had screws loose. He never even questioned her relocation to Houston. That alone was a huge red flag. And he never knew she was practically living at his home when he was gone?
I was disappointed by the lack of intensity in the peak moments. I was hoping to read about an unexpected pregnancy (Pilar made several trips to the restroom during their "last" dinner.) or a fistfight when Pilar confronted Kendall at her home. Even an attempted murder would have been icing on the cake...anything other than the kinky hotel bed whipping Pilar administered on Xavier that he actually seemed to enjoy. This book had lots of promise and could have gone in a deeper direction, but the sensational dialogue made up for a plot that fell short.
