    description

    "I can see that you and I suffer the same affliction. We love death."

    I was intrigued by the blurb right from the start, because it was really unique. I had no idea what to expect so I went in with an open mind. It was different and the writing style (second person POV/internal monologue) threw me off in the first quarter of the book. It took me some time getting used to it but that didn't take away my interest in the story.

    Have you ever read a book and you're like what am
    I reading? Well this was that book.

    The book is about a couple who both kill but for different reasons. Its also billed as romance but it really didn't feel like one to me. The writing style was hard for me because I would get confused as to whose point of view I was reading. I found myself having to go back to the beginning of the chapter a few times to make sure I had the right person.

    I love the cover for Water Under The Bridge by Britney King. She designed it herself. It looks like it could be for a paranormal/supernatural novel, but this is so much better. We have not one, but two serial killers!!! And one is female!!! The is a love story like none I have ever read before.

    Each chapter starts with a sketch and I like to try and figure out what it’s telling me.

    The beginning is tantalizing, teasing me, making me have to know how we got to this point.

    Just reread this again ready to jump into book two :)

    I am a great fan of this author and her books. I read a lot but Bedrock has always stayed with me. It's one book I want to delete from my mind and read again for the first time. I want all those feels again. As soon as I heard she had another book I knew I needed it in my life. I just didn't realise how much I was going to love it.

    *** I was given an ARC for an honest review. ***

    This was an intriguing and interesting novel.  Water under The bridge was an amazing surprise. Totally kick ass.  I was stunned by the way the story was told but I admit it took me a some time to get into it.


    I read this book like a diary, about two people who are definitely your usual heroes, describing about their darkest fears, hopes and cravings. And I have to say it was frightening and gave me chills. Written with such straightforwardness,

    ARC REVIEW. No spoilers.
    Britney King does it again! She has a fantastic way of creating characters you can't get enough of, sometimes relate to, don't always understand, but certainly want to follow beyond the pages in the book.

    Absolutely enthralling. The writing style drew me in from the moment I picked the book up and I simply couldn’t put it down. I love how this story deals with such complex ground and issues that, in theory, should be against our moral codes. But morality is such a huge concept and it can vary so much from one case to another. It’s obvious from the start that neither Kate nore Jude are exactly the sort of people we’re used to dealing with in everyday life. They both have childhoods that have scarr ...more

    I have never read anything like this before, Ever.
    I'm still trying to process whether or not I liked it.
    But how could I not, it was so well written. Mindfuck.
    A pair of deranged psychotic killers wreaked havoc in my mind.
    The writing style weirded me out, a combination of dual POVs, told through inner monologues much like listening to a voice behind the scene.
    Almost like the character is a narrator speaking directly to the reader.
    Mindfuck.

    Wow…this is the first book I have read by this author but it definitely will not be the last!

    Water Under the Bridge was a little hard for me to get into at the beginning due to its unique writing style, second person dual POV with internal monologue (thanks Betul for helping me describe this), but once I got used to it…boy did the characters and story suck me in!!! To the point I was up till 4:00 a.m. finishing it.

    To be honest, when I started reading the first page of this book I had no idea what to think. I almost didn't want to continue reading it because of how she wrote it. It threw me off guard and I'm not a big fan of these types of books. But then I shook my head and told myself to keep reading it and give it a chance. I'm really glad I did. I enjoyed this novel so much! The more I read the more I got into it and by the time I was a couple chapters in I didn't even notice the writing style anymore. ...more

    This book is dual points of view from Jude and Kate. Kate is a killer and Jude is a killer but is hired to hunt down Kate and bring her in, instead he falls in love with her. You are hooked from the first words until the very end. It was interesting to see their different points of view on their relationship. The characters are well written and the story flows together nicely. Can't wait to read more from this author.
    Donna ~ The Romance Cover
    3.5 stars!!! I have to admit that this book was hard to get into at first, with the story told in the second person it was hard for me to connect with these two as characters, but their story does suit the manner in which it is told. But my thriller kick is still ever present as Britney King delivers the story of Jude and Kate, Jude a contract killer and Kate a woman that kills for fun. Totally unconventional, totally psychotic at times, yet addictive.

    Water Under The Bridge is a book like none that I have read. The blurb is what first caught my attention, I love Dark genre books, so this one looked right up my alley! The writing style took me by surprise. I did find myself none the less turning the pages all the way to the end! It took time to get use to the Monologue POV style writing, I wasn't too sure I was going to be able to finish it, but honestly I couldn't not see where this book was going to take me.

    Intense Read Must pay attention. The beginning you might be a little lost on whats going on but Trust Me it all get sorted out. I dont even know how to explain this book beside Fxcked up in a good way. These to Kate and Jude are Soul Mates in the true meaning of soulmates. After some of the fxcked stuff they do. They are funny in that sick sense when you really know someone. My only reason for not giving 5 stars was you really didnt get to know her past and her dad. Thats all I can say on that w ...more

    This is by far the best book Britney King has written. I’ve always been a huge fan of hers, but Water Under The Bridge is unlike anything she’s done before. It’s one of those reads that instantly pulls you in and you can’t help but read the entire book in one sitting. It’s one that will leave you with your mouth hanging open, hanging off the edge of your seat, and one you’ll read over and over again. At least, that’s how it was for me. As soon as I finished, I wanted more of Jude and Kate. I wa

    I think Water Under The Bridge may just be Britney King's best work to date. Water Under The Bridge is written from dual points of view (Jude and Kate) but it's also written in a style that I haven't read much, if ever, where Jude and Kate go back and re-tell what happened as they recall it and as if they are speaking to the other. Britney once again does a great job of making you feel like you know the characters and like you are right there with them. She kept me very engrossed in Jude and Kat ...more

This book is unique and different than anything that I have read before. I have been a fan of Britney's since her first book and her writing just gets better and better with each release.

    I have been a huge fan of Ms. King’s work for a while now. I have said this once and will probably say it again and again, she has the most unique and creative writing style I have come across. With that being said, Water Under The Bridge takes Britney King's writing to a whole new level. I was completely consumed with this story from start to finish. I was questioning my sanity as one point because how can you have any feelings for a killer other than hate? Apparently, there are a lot of emoti

    Water Under The Bridge is the first book in a series but it can be a stand-alone. It tells us the story of two very interesting and twisted characters I've ever read.

    Jude and Kate are both killers. Jude kills people for money while Kate kills whenever she wants to. Jude has been hired to hunt her down but something unexpected happened. He falls in love with her. Luckily, she already wants to have her own family. But is love enough? Will they end up happily inlove together? Or one of them will en

    Such a unique story - I have read this author before so I know she has a very different style of writing - if you are new to her it may take a bit to flow BUT if you are used to it you can appreciate the uniqueness right away. We have a dual POV but more so a dual POV letter writing back and forth !! Is there a name for this style ?? Who knows , maybe this author made it up !! Who cares - it works with this story because really this is anything but simple and easy.

    3.5 Stars. The blurb on this had me really, really excited that I was in for a total mind bender. The concept of the storyline is spot on, but unfortunately this fell a little short for me. This is definitely considered a suspense novel, and there are some dark topics in here but they are not written in the gory detail that would turn a reader off from the story. I think I expected this to be a book that sucked me in, left me unable to walk away from the kindle, and it just didn’t happen. It rea ...more

    I don’t know what I was expecting but this book was not it. I read the synopsis for Water Under the Bridge and I was instantly curious about the main characters from this book and their story. I will admit that at the beginning it was VERY hard to adjust. This book is written in a very unique form that I don’t know that I have ever read before. It is written in letter form for the majority of the book and it is in a form of first person narrative with the person speaking directly to the other ch ...more

    What a fascinating story! I was intrigued when I read the synopsis of this book and thought it could be pretty interesting, but I wasn't prepared for what I found between the pages. Water Under the Bridge is like Dexter x2 with romance. I was pulled in immediately and loved the writing style and back and forth between the characters.

    This may be the craziest book I have ever read! No joke. It was not at all what I thought it would be, but trust me, I am not complaining.

    Kate and Jude are killers. Like for real. Both of them are serial killers. They are calculating and smart and I have no idea how they even worked, but they did.

    Let me warn you. This book is not like any other book I have ever read. It is written in first person (?) in a stream of consciousness style mostly with thoughts about the other characters. Th

    Be prepared to be chilled to the bone with Britney King's Water Under the Bridge. This story is down right insanity and will leave your mouth agape at times with their every day "occurrences".

    It's a story of a hit man, Jude, and a serial killer, Lydia, and how they fall in love and live in the real world. This story was bizarre and twisted and completely startling. The games they play not only with the outside world but with each other is something of another dimension. It's a constant struggle

    WOW! I was really impressed by the narration of the story. I don't know the exact term to explain it, but it was like the two POVs were writing to each other. It was different. Good different.
    I also liked the characters. Their past, their demeanor, their gritty love for each other, everything was well thought of and fit.

In all honesty, I was ready to bail after the second chapter because it just wasn't the writing style I was use to, or have ever really seen before. Once I got the hang of it, I couldn't get enough of these characters and thier story.

    Britney King writes romantic suspense novels and psychological thrillers set in suburbia. She enjoys the kind of suspense one can’t look away from, combined with a side of (dark) romance, and often finds her sweet spot penning a good mixture of the two.

    She is the author of eight novels, several of which have been featured on various bestseller lists, and is currently at work on number nine.
