“I’ve been studying her for weeks. I know how she takes her coffee, the color she prefers on her nails, the way her mouth moves when she sleeps. I don’t know what she looks like when she’s happy. But I will.”

Jade’s 4.5 out 5 Deranged & Tangled Blushes Review
We’ve waited… some of us patiently (I don’t know who those people are), but most of us chewing our finger nails! And the GRAND FINALE of Jude and Kate in Come Hell or High Water is HERE! And they have a new game they are playing!
We all know the premise of the madness between the pages of this series. But what we really find in CHOHW is how much love there actually is between Jude and Kate.
Oh Kate, how you become unhinged and reading how Britney King unraveled you was incredible. It was disastrous in the most beautiful way. You’re a ticking time bomb just waiting to detonate.
And Jude, how you’ve grown since Dead In the Water. You were controlled back then, but you are razor sharp now. But although you are lethal in every sense, marriage and becoming a father has given you a slight soft spot. You love fiercely and you exude it throughout every decision you make.
Come Hell Or High Water gave me insomnia like I’ve never experienced. I needed to know where Jude and Kate’s story was going and how it ends, Britney King’s writing has grown tremendously as well throughout this series! It’s Twisted! It’s Cold-Blooded! It’s Jaw Dropping! It’s Everything… you want Kate and Jude’s final bow to be…
I’ve been studying her for months. I know how she takes her coffee, the color she prefers on her nails, the way her mouth moves when she sleeps. I don’t know what she looks like when she’s happy. But I will.
That’s not to say I meant to keep her this long. And, of course, you, well you, never intended to keep her at all. But then, what’s done is done.
“I want you to be happy here,” I told her the first week she was here, not long after we let the drugs wear off completely.
“I don’t see how that’s possible,” she said.
“Tell me what makes you happy.”
I could see her thinking about my question; I could see that I’d set something into motion. It wasn’t immediate—most things that are truly great rarely are, but eventually her lips turned upward. Slowly, she broke out into a full-on smile, and it was like the sun coming out on a cloudy day. “He makes me happy.”
“Your husband,” I said. It wasn’t a question. Mostly because it hadn’t occurred to me that it should be.
She laughed just slightly. The smile remained. “Something like that.”
“I see,” I told her, raising my brow.
She looked at me then, really looked at me. The smile faded but her eyes lit up. “Not yet, you don’t,” she said. “But you will.”
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.
