About the Author

Britney King writes psychological, domestic, and romantic thrillers set in suburbia. She is currently writing three series and several standalone novels. 

The Bedrock series (psychological/domestic/romantic thriller) 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 Trilogy (psychological/domestic/romantic thriller) 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 version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Also, the hit series Dexter. 

Around The Bend, is a heart-pounding standalone (romantic suspense/domestic/psychological thriller), 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 (romantic suspense/contemporary romance) is a coming of age, friends to lovers, second chance (plus a few) love story about unlikely friends who travel the world; trying to find themselves, together and apart. It has been compared to Love, Rosie.

Britney lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree.

She enjoys hearing from readers and would love it if you would connect with her at or the plethora of social media accounts she posses.

Stunning! I was immersed and engaged from beginning to end. I experienced emotions on every level. This book makes me think about my own life and future. It may change some of the ways in which I live it. Thank you.

This book was an emotional rollercoaster. The description doesnt wholly feel like it jives with the book. Its about a wealthy family that shatters. it deals with addiction, love, and honesty. the characters were unique and intelligent. it was a beautiful story.

This book is not normally what I enjoy and in the beginning chapters, I wasn’t sure I’d continue reading, but I’m glad I did. It’s an interesting character study of two people with diametrically opposed backgrounds who come together and form a lasting bond. While the ending was predictable, it was still and amazing story and I’m glad I read it.

After everything that Jessica experienced in her life I had hoped for a happy ending. But it was emotional, painful and helped her see the strength that he knew she had.

I am a huge fan of Britney King’s and I was so excited to get my hands on this one. Around The Bend was one heck of a rollercoaster ride, filled with twists and turns and OMG moments. Be ready with tissues and fists as Britney King had all my emotions raging while I read this novel that feels so much like real life. I hated to see it end. I was left with tears in my eyes and craving more, like a junkie needing their fix. If you are looking for thrills and chills that will stick with you after putting the book away, look no further. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Around The Bend by Britney King.

What a wonderful novel. I read while on the treadmill, doing the treadmill which is not a favorite of mine to do. Yet found that this past week I couldn't wait to get on so I could read this book. I was so wrapped up in the story. I had a hard time one day though, I had to stop walking due to crying...Great Book!

I have not had a book touch me like this one did. A well written story of two destroyed lives finding one another, healing then loving from the heart. I have not cried for a character in a long time. Well done.
