About the Author

Britney King writes psychological, domestic, and romantic thrillers set in suburbia. She is currently writing three series and several stand-alone 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 stand-alone, 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 stand-alone 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. Classics. Britney lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A thriller that needs some work.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 August 2020
This was my first time reading Britney King's work and if I'm honest I was expecting more. Reading the blurbed I was interested but now that I've read the book, I don't even think the blurb is accurate. I don't think George (the MC) overlooks anything to achieve success. He has his suspicions about Liam but that's all they are. The book didn't really give George chance to contemplate who Liam, the young apprentice, helping him finish his book, was. It felt like so much was put into the first half of the book that the ending just seemed an easy way to finish it.

I really love the cover and I think the name of the book is clever. I wanted to know more about Eve and their children as I was never sure what actually happened. If you give us all the gory details one thing then surely we should have details relating to other things as well. Readers don't like being left out when they don't need to be. Knowing more about George and his family would have helped me to have a better connection to him.

The book was definitely thrilling as I was finding it hard to read the book at night but the ending was disappointing. The idea was there but I don't think it was executed well enough. If you've read Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson, which I really enjoyed, it has a similar ending but the build up was done a lot better. I'm not saying that I predicted the ending but it didn't seem to fit. There was no build up to an unreliable narrator and the ending didn't help everything make sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Britney King writes the best thrillers!
Reviewed in the United States on 13 June 2020
The Book Doctor is the third book that I have read by Britney King. Previously I read Room 553 and Kill, Sleep, Repeat. Room 553 is one of my favorite psychological thrillers and I recommend it all the time. I dove right into The Book Doctor without really reading the synopsis and I was immediately invested!
Author George Dawson's time as a bestselling author has come to an end. He has one last book to write and his publisher hires a "book doctor" to help him complete his manuscript and have one last bestseller. George is skeptical about Liam, the book doctor, until he realizes that Liam is actually helping.
The Book Doctor reads at a swift pace and that is how I love my thrillers. As with any thriller, I am always trying to see if I can figure out the twist before it is revealed. Last night I definitely said "I was right" out loud. Figuring out the twist is one of my favorite things to do. For me, it does not take away from the book. Loose ends or contradictions will bother me.
Britney King continues to be one of my favorite thriller writers! If you haven't read any of her books yet, I highly recommend The Book Doctor.
