Dead in The Water is the continuation of Kate and Jude's story that started in Water Under the Bridge. The first book was about how they met and in Dead in The Water we see how they live as a married couple and try to fit in as best as they can. I had no idea what to expect because killers are pretty unpredictable, at least Kate really was. Just like in the first book, Kate did things her own way and didn't really like to follow rules. S ...more
“Most people either aren’t ready for the truth, or they can’t handle it. Truth can get you in trouble…”
Dead in the Water continues Jude and Kate’s story from Water Under the Bridge and I highly recommend reading that book first. Jude and Kate are simply…psychotic. Jude is a contract killer and Kate…well she just kills for fun. Kate needs murder to survive, to scratch the itch and I have to be honest and say I still haven’t c ...more
Faking normality in suburbia.
Two assassins do their best to blend in with the ‘normal’ people.

We met Kate and Jude in Water Under The Bridge. Jude is a contract killer and Kate kills whenever she wants to. They are totally different yet perfect for each other. Dead In The Water is the continuation of their story. We get to see their struggles as they try to fit in and be a normal family for the sake of their kids. Plus, the posibility that someone in their neighborhood knows their deep dark secrets.
This book, like with WUTB, is written in second person POV of Kate and Jude w ...more
Dead In The Water picks up where Book one Water Under The Bridge ends up.
Jude is a hitman and Kate kills whenever she wants.
They struggle to be a "normal" family for the sake of their kids and neighbors.
Just like book one Dead In The Water is written in dual POV, Jude and Kates.
I loved the first book and waited to get my hands on this one. And I was not disappointed.
I couldnt put it down.
Dead In The Water is more da ...more
Amazing continuation to WUTB! The story picks up right where WUTB left off and you get to read more of the dark, twisted world of Jude and Kate. Yes, Jude and Kate are assassins and kill people but there is so much more to them than just being a hired gun.
This story reminds me a little of Mr & Mrs Smith with Jude and Kate being assassins hiding in plain sight in Suburbia, USA.
Very well written story that I can't wait to re-read and continu ...more
Her unique writing style where she uses second person dual POV with internal monologue that took some time for me to get use to in book 1, Water Under the Bridge, had me completely mesmerized from page 1. Trapped in author's web where the sick, twisted-minded start to feel completely normal demonstrates how unbelievably talented this author is!
Written so it can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend starting with book 1, ...more
Again, this book is in 2nd person.. and can be hard to read at first but then you're glued to the pages.
In this installment the players are being played... but who's playing them?
Another great book in this series and I look forward to seeing what will happen next.
*Recv'd an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review.
With Water Under the Bridge, I wasn't an instant fan. Britney King's writing style threw me for a loop and it took me a few chapters to warm up to the book. This time around I was all in and Dead in the Water didn't disappoint at all.
"Some days with you it feels like trying to squeeze a hurricane into a bottle."
Kate and Jude are a mess to put it nicely and it's no surprise given thier backgrounds and/or occupation. As we left them in book one, things were falling apart ...more
Jude and Kate are back with a bang, and boy have I missed them so much. That sounds strange right? I questioned myself many times throughout this story of how in the world did Ms. King make me fall in love with not one but two killers…but she has done it.
Jude and Kate are living in the peaceful little neighborhood trying to fit into the lifestyle and be completely different people than what they really are. On the outside, they seem perfect and loving, but on the inside there is a hunger in th ...more
In this book you see the chaos that surrounds Jude and Kate as they try to fit into the Suburbian lifestyle for the sake of their family. They never imagined things could get so complicated when they got married ...more
Dead in the Water by Britney King is a definite must read. It’s one I see myself reading again and again. There’s just something about Britney’s writing style that instantly pulls you in and I know I couldn’t stop reading once I started.
More than once I was hanging off the edge of my seat wondering what else could happen with Kate and Jude. I had so many questions and just when I thought things were alright, Britney would blow me away with another twist. Things are definitely not what they see ...more
However it did take me a while to get into. The dual pov and the writing style was different to what I usually read, it wasn't bad, just different. So for me it didn't flow as well as I would have liked. I kept getting the feeling that I had missed something, and I couldn't put my finger o ...more
Dead in the Water - Britney King
### 4.5 Hashtags ###
Firstly this is book 2 and you do need to read the first book to understand this crazy couple. I have to say I actually loved this one more than the first, this series just gets better and better.
Nothing within this story is predictable - seriously anything can happen. This book is unique, twisted, addictive and wrong in such a great way. Jude, Kate and their dysfunctional family end up in the most interesting of situations.
I am so looking for ...more
How explicit 4.5 / 5
Romance 4.5 / 5
Overall: 4.5 / 5
Dead in the Water is the second book in The Water Trilogy by Britney King. It’s written as a standalone featuring the same characters, but in different periods of their life. Even though it is not necessary, I do believe you will get the best experience by reading Water Under the Bridge, the first book, before this one.
Dead in the water is set ahead several years and Kate and Jude are as crazy, dark and insane as ever. They ...more
This book has a great plot and a lot going on. I really enjoyed it but it's narrative makes for a slower read and I'm not used to that.
The way Jude and Kate think blows my mind. And now they have children!! I can only imagine what the children think and it's a little terrifying.
When things in suburbia start rolling downhill, they inevitably pick up steam and bring everything with them.
At times it was a little hard to follow but once I was on tra ...more
Here we go! The continuation of Kate and Jude’s story is here! The twisted, cold couple is back after the events that played out in book one. These two are cold, unpredictable and are complete opposites. Kate is flighty and does things in the moment. Jude is in your face and predictable in his rules and patterns.
Dead in the Water is intriguing and unique. King writes in all internal monologues with chapters alternating between Jude and Kate. I love the in depth look into their twisted an ...more
Dead in the Water is fast paced, and suspenseful. It will keep you engaged to find out what this crazy couple will be up to next. I am looking forward to seeing if they are going to be a ...more
Another Must Read by Britney King!
This is the sequel to Water Under the Bridge.
Jude and his wife are a very interesting yet controversial couple. Both are professional killers.
It's told in the second person. Each chapter alternates between Jude and Kate's pop.
I found very insightful. Also each time got more tidbits and minor details that their spouse doesn't know. Along with further background.
I was drawn in and had to keep reading. Then reading again. I loved ...more
GAAAH Britney King has done it again! MIND BLOWN!!! King just has this way to have you so wrapped up into her world that she created, and she leaves you in awe and just whoa!
I really love the chemistry that Kate and Jude have as well. Their banter is epic and keeps you so engrossed in their story! You get a stronger feel for the characters as well, which I love, with flashbacks and more.
With so many twists and turns, this was one book that did not disappoint! I found myself enthralled with ever ...more
