Cover Reveal ~ The Replacement Wife by Britney King!

Title: The Replacement Wife
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: May 3, 2018 

 

From the bestselling author of The Social Affair comes a new riveting, powerful psychological thriller which offers a savage look into a utopian cultish society where beauty and perfection are valued at all costs. 

For readers of Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins, The Replacement Wife offers a peek into the lives of a married couple up against impossible odds and the notion that history has a way of repeating itself.

Statistically speaking, fifty percent of marriages end up in divorce. What are the odds for murder? 

Widower Tom Anderson is a savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Problem is, one is a lonely number. Thankfully, he solved for X by finding the perfect woman. It wasn’t easy. Tom is very specific. He has to be.

Having checked ‘find trophy wife’ off his list, life was moving along swimmingly. Until that perfect woman let it slip–she has a past. One she kept hidden, almost perfectly.

Sure, she lied–she fudged the numbers. Most women do.

Now, Tom has buyers’ remorse and according to cult rules only two options: get rid of her–or single-handedly erase her past.

She’s a liar. But she does keep house well. And she makes a mean lasagna.

Decisions, decisions.

Razor-sharp and utterly gripping, this electrifying story explores the lengths one will go in the pursuit of perfection, little white lies that can turn lethal, and the danger lurking behind the smiles of those we trust most.

Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree.
When she’s not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.

Currently, she’s writing three series and several standalone novels.

The Bedrock Series features an unlikely heroine who should have known better. Turns out, she didn’t. Thus she finds herself tangled in a messy, dangerous, forbidden love story and face-to-face with a madman hell-bent on revenge. The series has been compared to Fatal Attraction, Single White Female, and Basic Instinct.

The Water Series follows the shady love story of an unconventional married couple—he’s an assassin—she kills for fun. It has been compared to a crazier book version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Also, Dexter.

Around The Bend is a heart-pounding standalone, which traces the journey of a well-to-do suburban housewife, and her life as it unravels, thanks to the secrets she keeps. If she were the only one with things she wanted to keep hidden, then maybe it wouldn’t have turned out so bad. But she wasn’t.

 

The With You Series at its core is a deep love story about unlikely friends who travel the world; trying to find themselves, together and apart. Packed with drama and adventure along with a heavy dose of suspense, it has been compared to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Love, Rosie.

 


The Social Affair is an intense standalone about a timeless couple who find themselves with a secret admirer they hadn’t bargained for. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, the novel explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience. It is reminiscent of films such as One Hour Photo and Play Misty For Me.

My Review

4 Stars!

Britney King is quite talented. I think we all knew this already. (Hello, Water Under the Bridge series anyone?) So, in case you don’t know what you’re getting into with this, just think deep, psychological thriller.

King outdid herself with The Social Affair. It is twisty and full of crazy turns that you will never see coming. I finished the last line of the book with my mouth agape and my head spinning. I turned and looked at my husband and said a few choice words followed by a long exhale. I was lucky to be on vacation from work with this one, because once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. And it is NOT a fast read by any means. There is too much to pay attention to, to remember and to learn as you read along. I stayed up all night and into the morning to finish it and I do not regret it for a second.

The writing is amazing. The plot is crazy twisted and so unique. The characters will intrigue you. Some you will despise, others you will feel pangs of sympathy for, but none of them is really as they seem. However, cleverly enough, this IS a romance with a HEA. Believe it or not. And, it is quite a satisfying HEA.

This is not a book you want to miss! Take a ride on The Social Affair train. You will NOT regret it!

New Release: 4 Stars for Dead in the Water by Britney King

Title: Dead in the Water

Series: Water Trilogy #2

Author: Britney King

Release Date: Jan 17, 2017

Add to TBR

THE PERFECT NEIGHBORS. THE PERFECT COVER.A Gripping Romantic Suspense Thriller

He’s a contract killer. She likes to even the score. Smack dab in the middle of suburbia, few married couples are as competitive as Jude and Kate.

But then, most married couples don’t keep score in the form of body counts. Each hell-bent on a silent pact to out-do the other, the games begin.

Who ends up on top is anyone’s guess. But with these two, one thing’s for sure— not everyone comes out alive.

After all, there are a few things they can agree on: All is fair in love and war. And if they can’t make it work— they’re dead in the water.

 

My Review:

4 Stars!

Here we go!  The continuation of Kate and Jude’s story is here!  The twisted, cold couple is back after the events that played out in book one.  These two are cold, unpredictable and are complete opposites.  Kate is flighty and does things in the moment.  Jude is in your face and predictable in his rules and patterns.

Dead in the Water is intriguing and unique.  King writes in all internal monologues with chapters alternating between Jude and Kate.  I love the in depth look into their twisted and calculating minds.

Dead in the Water is a thrilling, romantic suspense with intriguing characters, unique storytelling and a fascinating plot!

“Cheers,” I offer, but it sounds like ‘fuck you,’ which it is, and I hate that we haven’t touched glasses. It’s bad luck, and certainly we don’t need any of that. You don’t seem concerned with luck though, because in two short strides you are standing in front of me, and your eyes are dark. You swallow hard, and this intensity, it kills me. You don’t say anything, and I hate the silence between us. Maybe you’re trying to send a message. Maybe you’re into telepathy; I’m not sure. But I’m not afraid of this side of you, Jude. It’s always been the best part. And so when you push me against the wall, I go willingly. At least at first. Because I know you, and you’ve always enjoyed a bit of a fight.
Britney King writes modern love stories for mature audiences. She also enjoys suspense and often finds her sweet spot penning a good mixture of the two.Britney is the author of eight novels and is currently at work on number nine.

She lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat and a partridge in a pear tree.
