The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon meets YOU.
Laura’s assistant Jared is obsessed with her, and after being fired he uses his newly free time to learn her routines. No matter how she says no, his advances keep getting bolder.
Laura soon realizes that the women she thought were friends are actually team Jared—he’s funny and likable while Laura is reserved. Of course they don’t believe that he is stalking her, and without a tangible threat, the police can’t help either.
Now, she has an elaborate plan to fake her death. When everything goes wrong, she finds herself lost in the forest, and her notes tell people not to look for her. But one person is looking for her. Jared’s formed a plan of his own and he is hunting her—to prove they were meant to be. By any means necessary.
"I personally loved Jared, yes, I know I'm calling my therapist after I get done posting this. . . The Cat and Mouse game the two play throughout this book is intense and feels so real... Love books that can cause such in-depth thought-provoking ideas. I want to read more from Erica because at the end of this read, I was speechless!"

"I devoured this story, unable to look away from the terror as it played across the page. This was beautifully written and so empowering. I love that Laura found herself and her strength when she needed to the most. This was a powerful book, written in alternating perspectives, and it will captivate you from start to finish."

"Jared's voice as he went on his long, entitled, deranged diatribes was so powerful, creepy, and, for many women, way too familiar. I think his commentary throughout this book really takes it up to the next level, and Damon really nailed that voice. It was wonderful. I often found myself with goosebumps when reading his chapters."

"A very terse and suspenseful psychological thriller. Really well-paced, creepy and ominous - I flew through it. The dual POV’s work really well to highlight the interplay of the complex, deeply flawed characters. You know the whole time that nothing good will come of their relationship, but it’s so well-crafted you have no choice to keep turning the pages. Highly recommend."

"Yes, this is a suspenseful story on one level, but it’s more than that. It’s a deep dive into a stalker’s mind. You’re getting a close-up of a sociopath, and it’s chilling... That there is social commentary woven into the story is merely the icing on the cake."

"A really good read, a situation that is frighteningly all too possible. This is one of those can't put down books. I am privileged to have been able to read it. From a psychological aspect, it reminds me of some of Dean Koontz's earlier works."

"This book was really good! I thoroughly enjoyed it! The edge of your seat action and the eerieness from being stalked to being lost in the woods had me having all the feels with Laura. I absolutely recommend this book. Well done!"

"This is a 10 star rating! This book.... holy hell!!! This book will have you lost from the real world and so tied up in the "real life" of this book! That is the one thing you have to watch with this book is how easily it sucks you in! "
