Totally on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it, couldn’t put it down!” – Book Addict Mumma

“As a sequel, this book works extremely well, as a stand-alone thriller it is also very good but clearly readers would be left a little lost about the back story (in which case read ‘Bedrock’ first).” —Paul Little, Little Ebook Reviews

“I haven’t felt this many emotions in a book in a very long time.” – Saints and Sinners Books

“The writing… goodness… I would have never thought this was the author’s first foray into Adult Romance. The writing… Again…Wonderful!! — Gretchen Anderson, Battery Operated Book Blog

Addison Greyer has always been known for doing the right thing. Hoping to keep it that way, she fought like hell to avoid falling for the mysterious, highly successful, albeit broken man the world knows as William Hartman.

But there’s just something about that which is forbidden… 

Odds against them or not, there’s something undeniable in the way he makes her feel.

As the pressure mounts, Addison soon realizes the price she’ll pay to keep everyone else happy.

Until it becomes pretty clear that some rules were made to be broken. 

In the highly anticipated sequel to Bedrock, Addison learns that you can’t help who you fall in love with—and it almost never happens the way you think it should.

Due to heavy subject matter, strong language, and sexual content this book is for mature audiences.

Warning…If you have not read book one Bedrock do not read this review.  It will contain book 1 spoilers.

Ok.  So this is the second book in the series and I have to say that the intensity levels did not drop.  Not in the slightest.  With the book picking right up where book 1 Bedrock left off, Addison is trying to get her life back together after the kidnapping.  The media is calling her a whore and Scott is out on bail.  With her life falling in a downward spiral, she tries to heal.   Her husband is blackmailing her, her mother-in-law is out to get her, Scott is stalking her and the one person she needs, she has to let go of.  With the pressure of all the problems weighing her down she soon realizes that she is going to have to pay the price.   What is that price?  Her happiness?  Her sanity?  Her death?

This book was perfect as sequels go.  Picking right up where the first one left off and continuing the story at a steady and smooth pace, never once lagging.  I am still hooked and this book had me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails and turning those pages.  I haven’t felt this much emotion reading a book in such a while.  This book is edgy and dark.  The characters are strong, very developed and feel so real.  Addison sure does make a lot of mistakes, but I think that is what makes her stronger.  William is no saint either.  He is the true alpha of this story in every way.  He doesn’t take no for an answer and will do what ever it takes to get what he wants and what he wants is Addison.

This book really does break the barrier.  There is are so many lies and secrets that it twists and turns like a roller coaster of emotion.  But one thing you can count on is love.  Addison and William have such a deep seeded love for one another it hurts at times.  You feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel and they may get to be together, then something happens and that light fades bringing about destruction.

I just have to say this again, Britney is a thriller novel god!!!!    Her books grab your attention and punch you in the gut.  Her story is not only exciting but scary and sexy.  The story flows flawlessly and leaves you begging for more.  You can’t help but become addicted, like it is a drug.  You just can’t get enough.

I felt like this book was the end of the story for these two, but no it is not.  There is more in store for our two dark lovers.  And I can’t wait to find out what in book 3 Bending Bedrock.  So if you haven’t read book 1 do it now!  If so then what are you waiting for book 2 is just as good if not better than book 1.  So pick up your copy today.

About Britney King

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.

Without a doubt, connecting with readers is the best part of this gig. You can find Britney online here:
