The Best Friend by K Larsen

4 Stars (4 / 5)

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.

I would classify this book at a romantic suspense. Katie is so awesome at writing suspense! From the very first sentence she plunges you right into the action and you are hooked. For awhile there she had me going about what was the truth and what was being lied about.

She is a master at crafting an intricate plot line, something to suck you in from the beginning. While reading I could tell that the characters wanted their love story to be front and center of the story, they wanted to love each other and shout it to the world, but the events of the novel kept pushing that to the side, because there was some pretty serious things happening. Russians, smuggling, sex trafficking…Like I said some intense things that needed to be taken care of first.

This author has a unique style of writing. Lots of short sentences, but I think that they way that she tells the story, it adds to the tone rather than take away from it.

Aubry is a fighter, no doubt. She overcame a lot during the course of the story. As far as the romance goes in the book, it was OK. I only say this because I wasn’t feeling Mike. He was incredibly selfish, especially for the way that he claimed he felt about Aubrey. His actions were infuriating at times! And while the sexy times were very sexy I couldn’t get past his asshattery. Like I said the romance wasn’t burning me down but still an enjoyable part of the story.

This story is technically a continuation of The Tutor and The Brother, but it could be read as a standalone if desired. It would certainly make you want to read the others, to see what had happened to these characters previously.
