Alice Loudon is happily living with her boyfriend and on her way to work one day she passes a stranger. Their eyes lock and they cannot pull away from each others stare. Eventually Alice goes into work but when she comes out the stranger is waiting for her and she follows him, under a spell, into a taxi and back to his flat. Intense and unbeleivable sex follows and Alice's whole world is turned upside down. She leaves her boyfriend and practically her whole life as she knew it and becomes immersed in the stranger - Adam's - world. Sex is the biggest part of their life and Adam is always so intense but Alice realises early on that he enjoys ... Read the complete review

...I doubt there is any such thing or at least there isn’t in relation to this book. My mum had read this and knowing my tastes, she recommended it to me thinking I might like it (or it would at least shut me up for a few hours) so trusting her taste-like you do, I decided to give it a go. I’m always ready and willing to pounce on a book that looks like its got more spice than an Indian Restaurant and more dark twisting paths than a back street in Brixton (Brixton = Hell with fluro lighting) so Killing Me Softly joined my list of ‘to do’ things. Well as it was so kindly pointed out to me by another Dooyoo member that the ... Read the complete review

This is a book that combines both thriller as well as romance. It is about an ordinary working lady in London, Alice Loudon who abandons her close friends, her loving boyfriend and her successful carrer for a passionate affair with a "tall, dark and handsome" mountain climber Adam and soon the affair turns to marriage. As Alice's new marriage progresses, she finds a dark and unknown side to her husband...... I couldn't put the book down initially. But the ending was a huge letdown. The first half of the book is totally compelling and easy to relate to.....once the book is turned about 3/4 of the way through, you pretty much can figure out the ... Read the complete review

I bought this book after reading rave reviews about it on Amazon.co.uk.... more fool me!!!! Although I feel Nicki French has great potential as a writer this book really didn't make the grade for me. It's all about a lass called Alice Loudon who has a nice job, a doting fiance and lots of friends. Then she walks past Adam Tallis - there eyes meet and .... well you know the rest! And that's the problem you really do know the rest! This is supposed to be a dark erotic and compulsive thriller! It's supposed to grip you from the opening page until it's dramatic conclusion. It's supposed to show 'great insight into male and ... Read the complete review

This is Nicci's best book so far. For anyone contemplating reading it I can tell you it is incredibly exciting, the characters are well developed, it's pacey and gritty and I read it while in the throes of moving house! I actually found it believable in several respects - how many of us on a dull Monday morning wish we could be whisked off our feet by a gorgeous stranger? Isn't this sort of what we do on a holiday romance, take a risk, go with our instincts rather than our brains. This is what many of us dream about, that adrenaline rush when we meet someone new and attractive! This is a story of 'what-if' - what if we actually did take ... Read the complete review
