Release Tour: The Social Affair by Britney King

January 26, 2018

Title: The Social Affair
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: January 18, 2018 

In the tradition of Gone Girl and Behind Closed Doors comes a gripping, twisted, furiously clever read that demands your attention, and keeps you guessing until the very end. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, The Social Affair delivers us the perfect dark and provocative villain. The only question—who is it?
A timeless, perfect couple waltzes into the small coffee shop where Izzy Lewis works. Instantly enamored, she does what she always does in situations like these: she searches them out on social media. 

Just like that—with the tap of a screen— she’s given a front row seat to the Dunns’ picturesque life. This time, she’s certain she’s found what she’s been searching for. This time, she'll go to whatever lengths it takes to ensure she gets it right—even if this means doing the unthinkable.

Intense and original, The Social Affair is a disturbing psychological thriller that explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience.

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 violent. Josie tries her best to please him and lives in fear of what disappointing him means for her. 

Public perception is everything to people like the Dunn family. Josie constantly posts on Instalook to show off her "perfect" life to her "friends". This just lures Izzy in even more and gives her all the information she needs to know to pursue the couple further. 

The Social Affair is an intriguing psychological thriller full of mystery and suspense! I've read other books by Britney King before, and just like those, this one had me hooked right from the start! I couldn't put it down! The way the book begins, progresses, twists, and turns will have you speculating like crazy until the very end. When I finally thought I knew what was going to happen, I found out I wasn't even close! 

The ending may have left me with some questions that I would have loved answers to, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. If you're looking for a thriller that keeps you flipping pages and guessing the whole way through, this might be the book for you!

P.S. I would love a bonus scene of the complete interview and even a prequel about what happened with Josie's previous "husband." Anybody else?


Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree.

When she's not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.

Currently, she's writing three series and several standalone novels.
The Bedrock Series features an unlikely heroine who should have known better. Turns out, she didn’t. Thus she finds herself tangled in a messy, dangerous, forbidden love story and face-to-face with a madman hell-bent on revenge. The series has been compared to Fatal Attraction, Single White Female, and Basic Instinct.
The Water Series follows the shady love story of an unconventional married couple—he’s an assassin—she kills for fun. It has been compared to a crazier book version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Also, Dexter.
Around The Bend is a heart-pounding standalone, which traces the journey of a well-to-do suburban housewife, and her life as it unravels, thanks to the secrets she keeps. If she were the only one with things she wanted to keep hidden, then maybe it wouldn’t have turned out so bad. But she wasn’t.

The With You Series at its core is a deep love story about unlikely friends who travel the world; trying to find themselves, together and apart. Packed with drama and adventure along with a heavy dose of suspense, it has been compared to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Love, Rosie.

The Social Affair is an intense standalone about a timeless couple who find themselves with a secret admirer they hadn’t bargained for. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, the novel explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience. It is reminiscent of films such as One Hour Photo and Play Misty For Me. 
Without a doubt, connecting with readers is the best part of this gig. You can find Britney online here:
