Water Under The Bridge
Only, my whole life I’ve done anything but.
That’s probably because I’m anything but average. After all—female serial killers seem to be a minority in today’s society.
And that’s ok—because I’ve longed for a change for quite some time now.
Which brings me back around to fitting in.
You know what one has to do to fit in?
I do ...more

"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.
The two main ...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.
The book cover is so innocent looking but don't be fool ...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 ...more
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.
Overall, the story was simple (The past- how they met, their marriage and problems. The present.) but, the in ...more
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.
Written to not be read as a standalone even though one can definitely choose to do ...more
Jude and Kate are killers for hire, they are very interesting characters must say I have never read anyone like them.
Date, marriage, baby, breakup. They don't have a typical love story but it suits these two. If you're looking for ...more
What in the hell did I just read? I gave this book five stars due to the fact of how unique it was. 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.
And now I can't review it. Boo.
After going through the highlights on my Kindle, I realize they are full of spoilers. If you are looking for something different ...more
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 ...more
I would recommend this book to anyone!
She lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a ...more
