"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 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.
Jude and Kate they both had issues from their childhood. I c ...more
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.
“Maybe you would be better ...more
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.
Kate and Jude are two psychotic killers. This story is told through both of their points of view through inner mo ...more
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,
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
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
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
I would recommend this book to anyone!
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

Kate and Jude are extremely unique characters. They are both serial killers attempting to find their place in the world among all of the bodies that they leave behi ...more
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 ...more
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 ...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
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
