For Max and Laurel, nothing is off limits when they meet in room 553. Their illicit affair is exhilarating, passionate—and dangerous. 

Driven as much by compulsion as pleasure, Max can't stop. His mistress is Jesus on the streets, and Satan in the sack. But when things take a sharp and sudden turn for the worse, he finds himself ensnared in a trap of his own making. 

Under heavy scrutiny by the police and the media, Max is hailed as a cold and evasive womanizer. He made mistakes, to be sure. But does that make him a killer?

Unnerving and addictive, Room 553 is a vivid and sensual psychological thriller that weaves a story of cruelty, reckless desire, and blind, bloody justice.

My Thoughts:

In the last book I read by this author she left me wanting more. Well the more has come and I found it very interesting. The first interesting thing was the Foreword. It certainly isn’t one you would expect but I’ve learned that about this author. Maybe that’s one reason that I keep coming back for more.

Max Hastings is a man who constantly thinks. At first introduction he gives a household tip – will have to check it out. He also reveals the significance of the title. In his next scene he did something that totally grossed me out – you may not feel the same. But when you think of his profession it just doesn’t seem something anyone else would do. It’s just a part of who he is.

Laurel Dunaway is honest about things in her life – at least on paper. She writes down what she’s willing to share but you have to wonder what she’s hiding. I think you’ll figure out early on the type of man her husband James is. It does make you wonder how they ever became a couple.

If you haven’t read this author before you’ll quickly realize why she’s good at the psychological thriller. She’s very good at engaging the reader’s mind. She’s also good at creating puzzles that she slowly unravels. In this instance, Laurel will give a helping hand. Sometimes one question gets answered and then another appears. Max is the one that reminds me why I’m terrible when it comes to mysteries.

That becomes a good reason to keep reading. If I were to figure things out before the end I might give up. But having Max and Laurel as our main characters makes it easy to continue turning the pages. Our author was also very good with her secondary characters even though at times they may not have seemed that way. There were several times where I just had to roll my eyes. One of those times when Max’s wife Nina seemed to be in a real snit. Another time was when she gave attitude about her daughter. Then came a scene when she was talking to her husband and I just couldn’t help myself. But there came a time where I decided was going to have to be careful – my eyes will stay that way. If I didn’t have enough of an issue with Nina, then it starts again with Laurel’s husband. He seems to have an issue with compassion.

It wasn’t just the characters that kept my attention but the way the author wrote her story. We get to see Max’s take on what went on. Laurel doesn’t talk to the reader directly but we still get to understand her by what she reveals and by what she doesn’t. Max is the one to give us an ending but not really. He put the period on things but since life goes on maybe it’s just a comma.

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
