PRIVATE NUMBER: Wouldn’t you look better without a cheater on your arm?
AMANDA: Who is this?
The daughter of small town social climbers, Amanda Kelly is deeply invested in her boyfriend, real estate heir Carter Shaw. He’s kind, ambitious, the town golden boy—but he’s far from perfect. Because behind Amanda’s back, Carter is also dating Rosalie.
PRIVATE NUMBER: I’m watching you, Sweetheart.
ROSALIE: Who IS this?
Rosalie Bell is fighting to remain true to herself and her girlfriend—while concealing her identity from her Christian fundamentalist parents. After years spent in and out of conversion “therapy,” her own safety is her top priority. But maintaining a fake, straight relationship is killing her from the inside.
When an anonymous texter ropes Amanda and Rosalie into a bid to take Carter down, the girls become collateral damage—and unlikely allies in a fight to unmask their stalker before Private uproots their lives.
PRIVATE NUMBER: You shouldn’t have ignored me. Now look what you made me do…
Oh boy did it take me a long time to get through. I honestly kept forgetting about it, which obviously does not bode well for this review.
All Eyes on Us was ok, that’s about the best thing I can say about it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as gripping as I had hoped. However, I will say I didn’t predict the twist, which was carried out fairly well.
I still don’t fully understand the motive of the person who was threatening Amanda and Rosalie, it seemed more like a cop-out to me, but it was surprising. So job well done I suppose.
From the look of the cover I thought All Eyes on Us was going to be a sapphic read, which I was really excited for. After listening for a couple of hours I realised that wasn’t the case and my motivation to keep reading was cut by at least half.
To me, the synopsis reads like Amanda and Rosalie will end up together, and for a while, I believed it. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
Honestly, I don’t know what else I can say about All Eyes on Us. It was just ok. Took too long to get through as my interest would wane and the characters were average.
It wasn’t completely terrible, and I’m not a complete savage, so I will be giving it three stars.
