Every Move You Make | C.L. Taylor

C. L. Taylor and her new book, Every Move You Make


Written with the author’s own experiences of being stalked underpinning the story, Every Move You Make is authentic and terrifying!

It’s quite difficult to review this story without resorting to cliché because C.L. Taylor really has created a heart-in-the-mouth, goosebumps-inducing, page-turning read.

Every Move You Make: Review & Synopsis

A countdown to the exact date one of the group will die fills the book with palpable tension. As events escalate, Taylor makes sure we go through the anxiety and fear her characters experience, which makes Every Move You Make visceral and realistic.

As the fast-paced plot progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult to know who to trust – the constant suspicion the protagonists live with is reflected onto us with every page we turn.

What makes this novel particularly impactful is that Taylor challenges expectations about people who are stalked and people who do the stalking. When we realise any one of us could find ourselves in this situation, Every Move You Make becomes all the more terrifying.

The book contains strong language, and the subject of stalking might be a difficult one to read about, but this is an important novel. It is dramatic in execution, but no more so than the stories that hit the headlines almost daily.

I found Every Move You Make startling and unsettling. It’s an exciting, gripping read about multifaceted characters that explores themes of control, coercion and a wide range of relationships. It’s also an affecting and hugely important book that lays open a very real part of modern society and gives back autonomy to those whose lives are adversely affected by others. Don’t miss it!

Every Move You Make by C.L. Taylor is out from March 28, 2024 (Avon, HB, £14.99) and available from Amazon.
