[Nicci French] ✓ Killing Me Softly [world-history PDF] Ebook Epub Download ✓ A stand alone novel by the writing team that work under the name Nicci French I enjoy reading the successful Frieda Klein series so have been tempted to read from the writing duo This book falls short of the other books I have read but nevertheless gripped me and made me want to read.
At times the book was very good but sadly it drifted at other moments and for the first time since reading their combined work I felt that it was actually written by two authors rather than the seamless style I am used to.
The novel is about the obsessive love affair of Alice and Adam that leads to passion and mistrust Alice is already in a relationship with her live in boyfriend Jake when she meets Adam and very quickly an intense relationship begins that will cause a lot of hurt and mistrust Very quickly Alice s life changes as she falls in love with Adam and he appears to w So thrillers, romance, erotic, suspense with cheating not really my thing Who knew
Maybe I m just jaded, but I expect MORE from my mysteries MORE MORE MORE Predictable, predictable, predictable.
Beach read, definitely.
The first 60% of the book just made me mad Alice has a good, healthy, strong relationship with Jake, but as all we weak women are, she s lured out of it by the promise of a roll in the hay with studly Adam ThereI just summed up in one sentence what it took the author 60% of the book to say.
The book only gets interesting and mildly so at that in the final 40% of the book Most avid mystery readers will at least guess at the ending and there s just too much graphic sex and salacious swearing for the propriety of the book Look, I recognize that the topic of the book is largely the perverse sex life of studly Adam, but reallyno one speaks like that ESPECIALLY if they re dark and mysterious And, if anyone did, women would laugh in his f This book surprised me It was not what I expected To be honest, the book s description on the back cover doesn t give too much details on what it s about and when I first began to read it, I asked myself Why did I pick this one up Maybe it was because I got it on clearance for a buck the local bookshop Nonetheless, I am happy I picked this one up It turned out to be suspenseful and a good read Here is what this book is about since the book description lacks some knowledge.
Alice meets Adam randomly on the street one day and they soon very soon actually embark on a passionate love affair Alice is already in a relationship with a man named Jake but this does not stop her from pursuing something with Adam Eventually in a week s time she leaves Jake and her life behind Adam is a mystery, his past is very secretive other than the fact that he is a mountain climber Soon their sex Alice locks eyes with a beautiful man in the street and her life is overturned Leaving her comfortable home, her friends, her boyfriend, she immerses herself completely into this new love But Adam is than he seems and his refusal to discuss his past holds secrets than Alice can imagineThis is an intelligent read which probes the boundaries between overwhelming true love and obsession between submission and victimisation and between consensual sex and something much darker.
The idea of the One great love has become such a cliche and yet is still an ideal which underpins so much of contemporary culture This book takes that idea and pushes it to its logical extremes, exposing the dark underside where both romantic and erotic love shade into madness and violence.
There are elements of this b Man can I give this book a 3.
LOL anyways I really did enjoy this book as it is subtitled as A Novel of Obsession and that is exactly what she was, obsessed, like to the extreme.
Okay so the book starts out with an ordinary woman just like any one of us in a great relationship with a guy who is comfortable with her, and wants to marry her she has a great circle of college friends and a great job as a scientific researcher for a female contraceptive.
everything a thirty something woman could want then one day as she is crossing the street she locks eyes with a beautiful mysterious stranger.
Yeah he s hot and she is intrigued but forgets him as she goes to work, however when she leaves work he is still there and without even giving her his name she follows him to his borrowed residence and has mind blowin
Sorry all, but it was just not for me.
Chilling I love the way the book starts and then backtracks Doesn t always work but it does here The authors show how deep obsession can go, how the victim can be pulled in without even realising it s happening, and even when they do, it s still difficult to believe what s going on Adam is a damaged individual So kind and caring, so vile and manipulative Well drawn characters all round I ve read this book twice psychological suspense novels don t come better than this Not a romance Now That You Ve read GONE GIRLAlice Loudon Has It All A Devoted Boyfriend, A Marvelous Circle Of Friends, A Challenging Job As A Research Scientist Then One Morning, On Her Way To Work, She Exchanges A Lingering Look With A Devastatingly Attractive Man Adam Tallis Is The Essence Of Every Female Fantasy A Daring Mountain Climber Who Has Been Hailed As A Hero As A Lover, He Is Passionate Than Alice S Wildest Imaginings Soon There Isn T Anything Or Anyone She Wouldn T Give Up To Stay By His Side Soon All She Has Is Adam, And Life With This Stranger Will Take Her To New Heights Of Madnessand Fear Okay, this book is like a lifetime movie meets Showtime Another one of my guilty pleasures This is a curl yourself in a blanket and never get up book It s a bad car accident You re surprised you re so interested and a little disappointed in yourself, but you can t peel yourself away
