      I've been sitting here agonizing over what to write in my review of this book for three days now and I've come to the conclusion that I need to keep it brief for your benefit. No quotes, no plot specifics, NADA. If you're disciplined enough I would go so far as suggesting you don't even read the blurb before you dive in, just go for it. I keep circling back around to the fact that I have no words to fully describe was a breath of fresh air this experience was. There was no mainstream hype, no ov [...]

      So, I wonder how many likes this review will get? I hope I don’t turn into Josie anytime soon! I did a buddy read with a few girls for Social Affair by Britney King. I know some of the girls are still reading the book but I’m excited to see what they think!This book is so relatable with social media these days. I’d be lying if I say I don’t check my numbers on “bookstagram”. (Okay, so maybe I am Josie). Anyways, this was a fast read with alternating POVs between Josie and Izzy.Izzy i [...]

      Izzy Lewis is obsessed with social media. She uses it for life and fashion advice, but mostly to stalk people she admires. When Josie and Grant Dunn walk into the coffee shop where she works, she's immediately drawn to them. It's not long before she locates Josie on Instalook, and virtual admiration becomes real life interaction.  Josie and Grant look like the perfect couple. On the surface, Grant appears attentive and loving, but behind closed doors, he is domineering, manipulative, and violen [...]

      Since LOST my review, I guess I will have to rewrite this. 2018 and we can have lambs growing in plastic bag embryos, but I lose my review alright. The Social Affair is a quick, engagingly dark read that I was so happy to start reading for my TBR January 2018 list! When I saw all the buzz on social media about this book, I knew that I had to get my hands on it before I was the last stooge reading it #fomo (fear of missing out). Britney King's unorthodox storytelling in this novel is so deeply c [...]

      ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ / 5 CREEPY stalker stars. The Social Affair is a binge fest for sure, I read this book all in one day and it engulfed my whole world once I started. I think this might be the fastest I have EVER finished a book. For that reason alone I couldn't really give it less than 4 stars, even though I did have a few issues with it (we'll get to that later). I loved the short chapters in this book and the dual viewpoints between Izzy and Josie #thebestever. Izzy works at a coffee/s [...]

      Woooo this one is not to miss! 4.25 creepy stars. Review to come :).

      Part Cult. Part Stalker. Utterly addicting. It's always a little nerve wracking when someone you consider your friend gives you the honor of reading an early release copy of her book. However, I've read her before so I was 99.9% sure I was going to love this new standalone novel and guess what? I DO!Izzy leads a worker's life. She barely makes rent, hardly has an appetite and still mourning the death of Jake, she makes bad decisions and just trudges through day to day. That is, until Josie and G [...]

      When a gorgeous couple walks into the coffee shop that Izzy works in, she can't stop thinking about how perfect they seem. Thoughts of the couple consume Izzy to the point where she begins to stalk the wife, Josie, on social media in order to analyze every aspect of her life. Izzy is so captivated with Josie and Grant that she'll do anything to insert herself into their lives. Told in alternating perspectives between Izzy and Josie, The Social Affair is a dark, twisty, psychological thriller th [...]

       So color me surprised, but this one was way better than I expected. I'll be honest I wasn't too sure about it as it took me some time to get into it. The writing at first felt a bit clunky, and the flow wasn't great. That said, somewhere along the way I found myself enthralled with this story and I could not put it down. And that endingwowzaDID NOT SEE THAT COMING. This was a fantastic psychological thriller for sure.So deets I mentioned above the writing in this one took some getting used to [...]

      You never know what goes on behind people’s closed doors. They may seem to have a perfect marriage, a perfect family. They may post photos of a perfect happy life on social media; but all that, may be just a façade, a polished surface to hide the ugliness beneath.This was a dark, super-fast-paced and enjoyable psychological thriller. You wouldn’t want to put it down till the end.

      4.5/5Well hello Britney King, where have you been all of my life?! I love nothing more than supporting an indie author and when I find one that writes exactly the type of books I like it’s like unearthing a buried treasure. Britney King is that type of author for me now, The Social Affair was an intoxicating read, I wasn’t sure what to expect exactly having never read the author before and what I received was unexpected in the best possible way.I’m sure you guys are getting a little tired [...]

      Creepy AFStepford Wives with social media. Hard to guess where this one was going until the last page!

      This book was a fun, fast, wild ride! Recommended if you're looking for a dark, twisted psychological thriller to get lost in for a few hours.

      The reality of who someone is online and the reality of who that person is in real life are often two different things.' - Izzy, The Social AffairBritney King's The Social Affair is so realistic it's frightening.  This is likely my favorite Britney King novel to date.  She pushes the boundaries without going too far.  We follow the lives of seemingly the perfect couple and their family, as well as an outside character who becomes obsessed with following their lives on social media.  Does the [...]

      Thanks to the author and publisher for an advanced ebook copy and blog tour spot in exchange for my honest review!I've heard so many amazing things about Britney King floating around Bookstagram and I'm embarrassed to say that this was my first book by her. Better late than never! THE SOCIAL AFFAIR was amazing in every way for a thriller fan. Intense, stalkers, cults - what more could we ask for?I'm always hesitant when I see that a book is being compared to GONE GIRL or BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, bec [...]

      I was gifted this book by the author, and I'm so glad that I was! I've read several of Britney's books now- her Bedrock Series, and her Water Under the Bridge trilogy, and I've enjoyed them all. But this book is quite possibly the most shocking and twisted psychological thriller she has written yet. Izzy is a barista at a local shop, and the perfect couple Grant and Josie comes into her shop. But things are not always as they may seem. Check this out for a thrilling, edge of your seat suspense r [...]

      Release Date:January 18, 2018 Genre:Psychological Thriller. Domestic Thriller. I picked up this book based on a fellow bloggers recommendation and I am really glad I did. This book is everything I crave in a psychological thriller/ domestic thriller with twists and turns that I didn't see coming. I didn't know which characters to trust, which ones to feel sorry for, or which ones were being honest within the story. It is purely mind-boggling and intense to read. Now, you may be wondering why I d [...]

      "I read a quote once that saida true mark of maturity is when someone hurts you, and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back. This seems idealistic now. I wish someone had warned me. Enough of that kind of thinking will get you killed."Britney King'sThe Social Affairis a sizzling psychological thriller that oozes with tension and suspense. Izzy is a coffee shop barista unhappy with her minimum wage job. When the beautiful and charming Grant and Josie Dunn walk i [...]

      Oh my dayz. I have read two trilogies by this author and loved them. My expectations were high for this story and Britney has exceeded my expectations with this gripping read.I’m not going to go into the storyline. I advise you just go in blind as this story has a brilliant storyline. This is a disturbing psychological thriller that had me gripped from start to finish. I literally inhaled this story yet I didn’t want it to end. No matter how I tried I couldn’t predict how the story was goi [...]

    • Emmy H. Nathasia says:

      Another satisfying thriller! I didn't see the twist coming really.

    • Emily says:

      The Social Affair is kind of like The Last Mrs. Parrish meets 50 Shades of Grey (not the BDSM stuff, but the way Ana and Christian interact). This story has a ton of interesting aspects - stalking, dramatic relationships, secrets, and a cult-like religion.This story was confusing at times. It may have just been me, but I felt like it read like more information would be given about the past later on. This information never came - little tidbits were thrown to keep me very intrigued, and then I go [...]

    • Stephanie ((Strazzybooks)) says:

      This was such a fun and addictive read and I killed it in an afternoon. It was also very disturbing and psychologically manipulative - I was literally itchy during some scenes of the book because I felt so suffocated by characters' horrible actions. It kept me guessing the entire book. Highly recommended.

    • Samantha Wiley says:

      Honest to god I’m speechless!!! This book kept me on edge through the whole story then BAM, I was dropped was off a cliff. That wasn’t an ending I had even contemplated and I LOVED IT!!!! Wow just WOW.

    • Sara Koelsch says:

      Well HELLO Britney King! You killed it with this book! You related everyday common problems to the obsessed person. I loved it! King… you are good at these thriller, suspense, psychological mindfucks! I might need you to start writing a tad-bit quicker. I felt my own slight obsession while reading The Social Affair! I developed a compulsion… with this book! I couldn’t stop reading until it was over. I read this entire book in less than 24 hours! So we have Izzy, Izzy is obsessed with socia [...]

    • Richelle Robinson says:

      This book is the pure definition that the grass is not always greener on the other side. I thought I had this book all figured out while I was reading and I was so wrong. Izzy wasn’t as smart as I thought she was. Josie was smarter than I anticipated and Grant was plain evil. This book had me on the edge of seat while I read. The last few chapters of the book had my jaw dropping. It truly did! Britney King really brought her “A” game with this book. It was well written, evenly paced and he [...]

      Why did I have to go through this book so fast? This novel will pull you in and leave you breathless. The twist at the end was such a wonderful surpise I found myself grinning like a little school girl while reading it. Josie, you sly woman. Kate must have taught you a few tricks.
