Five stars just for mind fuckery alone! First time read by this author, she's someone to pay attention to!
Whoa, where to begin with this one, other than dark....suspenseful, sinister? Betrayed reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock and Agatha Christie combined. Where you the viewer or in my case the reader have this invisible X floating over people's heads and you're asking yourself "Are you the one? Did you do it.....nahhhhh.... not you?"
While trying to figure out all the puzzle pieces and how they

This one starts with a bang from the get.
I don't know how to get everything I felt out...
I liked the book...a lot.
The storyline and plot were impeccable.
I knew who the betrayer was for a while and, for me, it made the story more intense. I felt like I was watching a soap. I was at the edge of my seat each and every time I came back to this book.

The ending was a touch disappointing. Well, not the ending itself but the revelations of the betrayal between friends. It just so high school. The endi

I must say I am surprised by this book, but in the best of ways. Yes, normally I do not read books like this, but I must say the writing style and character development is amazing for a debut author. Kelsey had blown me away. If you like “different” books check this out. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. I know I was.

Kennedy, Caroline, Lexi and Sage seem so lucky; living life with their sexy husbands and best friends by their sides. However, as you progress through the book, you can see that perfection isn’t really the case. You always think that you know your best friends and all that they are going through. You get to a point where you don’t think you can learn anything new about them. However, the amount of secrets and surprises between these women? It’s deadly.

From the prologue on, the story keeps you on

Holy mother of suspense! I one clicked this honestly because I loved the title and cover and the blurb was just a bonus. And now? Who cares that its almost 2 am on a work day and I stayed up to finish this book! Because it was worth it! So much suspense!! 4 best friends, all happily married, or so they seem. Only one of those 4 women is a cheater and the one she's cheating with is... one of the other 3 women's husband of course. This story is told in alternating voices of the 4 women with specia ...more

This debut novel started off with a bang. Betrayed had me hooked from the start and guessing who it was throughout the whole book. Everytime I thought I knew who it was she'd throw in a little something to make me second guess myself.

A mystery filled with secrets, and betrayal that will keep you on the edge of your seat right up until the very end. I can't wait to read more from this first-time author.

You get caught up in the lives of these four women and can’t wait to read the next page, the next chapter. I thought I knew who the mystery woman was but then I kept going back and forth.

Friends. Lovers. Secrets. Lies. Revenge. Murder.

Betrayed is a mixture of Sex and the City, The Real Housewives franchise, and Pretty Little Liars and I absolutely loved it. So much so I read the forty-eight chapter book in two days. I then was able to read the ARC copy of the second book, Burned, and finished that twenty-four chapter novella in one day!

We follow four girlfriends through their eyes. Each chapter is told by one of the four ladies, including the ‘Betrayer’. We get a glimpse of th

Oh my God! My mind is still blown while writing this review. This book is seriously something else. It's been a while since I've read a book that had me so agitate to find what happens next!! I was even tempted at times to skip to the final chapters; that's how bad I wanted to know who was really behind everything!

This book grabs you from the first page; you seriously can't ignore that prologue!

I am completely shocked and awed. This story is magnificent! A story of 4 couples turns sour when its realized one of the girl is cheating with the others husband. Sage, Lexi, Caroline, and Kennedy are all trying to figure out who did it. The moment you think you are sure who it is, you end up second guessing yourself. I did not see it coming at all! Kelsey is wickedly talented at tugging your heart strings! By the end you'll be begging for answers. My first who did it book in a long time and my ...more

Betrayed is about four friends and their husbands. They all have perfect life's, family and friend and no matter what are always there for each other. But then two of the group cross a line that should never be crossed. Secrets are revealed, friendship and relationships are put to the test.
This book was full of suspense and I struggled to put it down. Even though there are quite a few characters it never became confusing and it all flowed so well. It constantly kept you guessing at what would ha

4.5 Star Debut Novel

This novel was a well thought out plot, with lots of little intricacies that kept me guessing all the way to the end. Every time I thought I knew "whodunnit" I was wrong, or I thought I was wrong...or...yeah, it kept me on my toes all the way through to the end.

While I wanted to hate some of these characters and their actions, it didn't stop me from loving them either. It kept my emotions on a roller coaster, and I loved it.

Freaking Wow!

This book was a guessing game.
The ending had me 🤯.
Kelsey is definitely one of my new favorite writers.
I can’t wait to see what happens next with the characters.

This book opens with a question and kept me guessing the whole way through. The group of friends are so involved in each other's lives it was hard to believe there could be anything that would turn one of them into a betrayer. But you never know what lurks beneath the facade people show the world, and when the truth is finally revealed it all made complete sense.
A fabulous page turner. I can't wait for the next book by this author.
