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.
If you only take one thing from this review, let it be that K. Larsen is never going to give you predictable.
The Best Friend follows a character that you know and love if you've read The Tutor or The Brother. As the best friend, she was a support character in those books but she takes the spotlight in this one. Aubry thought she had it all until it gets taken away.
Somehow, K. Larsen manages to create a new unique topsy turvy, mind-bendingly complicated situation that feels just as hopeless, lost, and chaotic as her previous novels. There's no love loss for crazy in these pages. If you yourself don't wonder about your own mental capacity, you aren't reading it right!
And can I say that the teaser for her next novel had me shuddering with chills and needy all at the same time! I can't wait!

WOW. This was a fantastic book I was hooked from the start. If you've read The Tutor you'll recognise Aubrey as Nora's best friend who we see pop up sporadically throughout the story.
From the beginning, the author keeps the reader guessing about the predicament she finds herself in. Aubrey is in the wrong place and sees something no-one was meant to and now she's been taken. Now normally like me you'll think you know the route the story will take but I was so wrong but I'm not going to tell you what happens. Where's the fun in that?
I loved the journey the author takes us on, the story is a suspenseful mystery where I questioned everything that I was reading. Very well written with intriguing characters that I wanted to know more about.

K. Larsen gives good words, born in Maine, she fled the state for a short period to experience, well, anything else, but now resides there again. She writes romantic suspense and psychological romance primarily but has dabbled in most romance sub-genres. She sometimes writes with Mara White, when something viral sparks a fire between them. They've been known to wrench hearts from chests and tears directly from readers’ eyes.
