✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Kill Me Tomorrow by Britney King


Kill Me Tomorrow
A Psychological Thriller
By: Britney King
Narrated by: Patrick Zeller
Publisher: OrangeSky Audio

From the best-selling author of The Social Affair and HER comes a mind-bending thriller that's soaked with raw sensuality, as an investigator’s search takes a wicked turn when he meets a beautiful and provocative woman.

Ali is a sex therapist-slash-guru, famous for the work she does helping others find pleasure.

The problem: Ali can never quite find it for herself.

Her life’s work makes nothing taboo, nothing off limits. And she’s tried everything short of murder. Although, with the way things are going, it’s not off the table.

When Ethan Lane is hired to investigate the death of a wealthy bachelor, he isn’t expecting to stumble into a string of murders. The victims are men, and all members of a popular dating app. Operating undercover with a profile of his own, he meets the woman of his dreams - who also happens to be his best suspect.

The question: Can Lane stay alive long enough to prove his theory? And does he want to?

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I have one piece of advice for reading Kill Me Tomorrow - curl up, crack it open, and just enjoy it. Okay, maybe one more: when you think you have it figured out, you probably don't. I always expect twists galore from Britney King, so that was no surprise. She has a knack for creating connections where it seems that none exist, and she does that brilliantly here. I'll say again, don't assume you have it all figured out at any point because the twists just keep coming. This one is told from Ethan and Ali's perspectives, alternating between them with a third perspective thrown in here and there from the villain's point of view, or is that a villain's point of view? It could be either or both with this author. That third point of view is balanced perfectly between creepy and just vague enough that we don't know who it is. And I'll stop there before I give things away. Just know that these characters will keep you guessing, and their story will keep you reading long into the night. Like everything I've read by King, this one is another one-sitting read because there's no way to put it down.
...And that's what I wrote when I read the Kill Me Tomorrow the first time. This time around, I listened to the audiobook, and all of that still applies. Then, add Patrick Zeller's narration, and this one gets even better (and the bar was already pretty high). Those earlier-mentioned creepy villain chapters? Yeah, Zeller nailed it. I'll admit that I was a little skeptical about how well he would pull off Ali's chapters, but he nailed those too. Really, he did an excellent job with all the different elements in this book. I'm not going to go into all of them so I don't spoil anything, but if you enjoy thrillers and audiobooks, this is one you don't want to miss.
