What she saw was enough to make her a liability.
Aubry Clark was thrilled with the direction her life was headed. AC Interiors, her design business, was taking off thanks to high profile clients like Liam Lockwood and Mike Chesterfield, giving her a chance. She could practically taste the success she was about to come into and the steamy cat and mouse games between her and perpetual bachelor, Mike, didn’t hurt either.
Until one day, just before sunrise, she went down to the docks to set up a photo shoot she’d dreamed up. She wanted to capture a colorful graffiti wall to use against the minimalist décor she had in mind for an upcoming project. But what she accidentally captured instead, was about to change her life forever.
The click of her camera shutter was the last untroubled sound she heard. When a muffled scream ripped through the air, Aubry turned around.
That was her first mistake.
When men dressed in black, forcefully shoved a scantily-clad girl in a shipping container and set their sights on her, Aubry ran.
Little did Aubry know, her luck was about to run out.
Kerry’s 3.5 Blush Review
Katie loves to stun her readers with her plot twists. She has done it again with The Best Friend. She really made my mind spin with this one! The Best Friend is a quick read full of suspense. The synopsis drew me in, and the story didn’t disappoint me. This can be read as a standalone but I do suggest to start with The Tutor.
Audrey and Mike’s relationship is complicated. Audrey has been through hell and back. As we were learning her side of the story, I was so confused. Audrey really made you wonder what was real and what was imaginary. The mind really knows how to play with your psyche. Audrey is strong-willed. She’s the friend that has your back and the life of the party. Things finally begin to turn around for Audrey as she really is struggling with life.
Mike is a bit of fly by night type of person. He has no cares, lives off his trust, and is naturally a bit arrogant. I really tried to like him, but it was hard. His POV slowly made me understand him, and I did end up liking him after all.
Katie stunned me with The Tutor and The Brother so I had an idea of what to expect. She’s an author that will just blow your mind. One thing her stories never lack are suspense and mind blowing plot twists.
K. Larsen gives good words, born in Maine, she fled the state for a short period to experience, well, anything else, but now resides there again. She writes romantic suspense and psychological romance primarily but has dabbled in most romance sub-genres. She sometimes writes with Mara White, when something viral sparks a fire between them. They’ve been known to wrench hearts from chests and tears directly from readers’ eyes.
