eARC received in exchange of honest review


After a party gone wrong and in desperate need of money for the fall semester of college, twenty-year-old Nora Robertson needs to escape her hometown. 

She accepts a summer long live-in tutoring job for a handsome man and his little sister at a secluded home deep in the mountains.

There is no running water.

No electricity.

No internet or cell service.

When her tutoring job ends she's hit with a brutal turn of events ... she's not permitted to leave.

After months in captivity, she makes a harrowing escape with her student that ends in a car accident on a desolate road. When Nora comes to, her student is missing. In a desperate attempt to find the girl, Nora will have to recount her time held captive. 

The good and the bad. 

Can Nora and the authorities work together to find the man who took her? Will they rescue the girl Nora tried to save? 

Author’s Note: This is a dark romantic suspense. Trigger warning: all of them. This will not elicit warm fuzzy feelings

Holden dressed me that first day out of the box. He dressed me and left me in his bedroom on his bed. I sobbed until my body had no more liquid to expel. I curled into a tiny ball and willed everything not to be true. At some point, probably mid-day, he came in with a bucket, washcloth, and tray of food. He gently, tenderly almost, sat me up and fed me. Small bites. He murmured that things would be okay. That I would see. When the food was gone, he lifted my dress from my body. I stared at the wall unmoving. He dampened the washcloth and washed me head to toe. There was nothing sexual about it. It was simply cleaning the filth and stench from my skin. If I’m honest, I almost enjoyed it. Being clean is something we take for granted. He left me in his room after a swift kiss on the crown of my head until dinner. He brought in a tray and fed me again. Afterward, he brushed my hair free of all the knots and braided it. When he finished I laid back down and squeezed my eyes shut so tightly that the apples of my cheeks began to burn.


My ultimate reading goal for 2017 was to read as many books by new authors as possible. Since the beginning of the year, my goal is divided in two (Debut authors and TBR list authors) K. Larsen has been on my TBR list for some time now. I have heard amazing things about her books by my book sisters. Sometimes deciding on what book to read by an author you have never read before can be overwhelming. K. Larsen has written many books before The Tutor, which is her new release. I decided start my K. Larsen reading journey with The Tutor. I have been on a dark romance kind of mood lately so I knew that this new release was my book of choice. 

From the captivating blurb to the mesmerizing cover, The Tutor was a dark, intense unputdownable story that left me on the edge of my seat! I was trying to solve the intricate puzzle that was this story. I had many theories with this book. The author did a phenomenal job at keeping me guessing. I never knew what to expect next with this story and that made my reading journey even more exciting. I don’t want to give anything away by doing a recap of this story. I want every single reader that picks up this book to feel all the same emotions that I felt while reading this story. 

This is what I can tell you about this story without giving anything away. The blurb gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect from this story. Nora accepts a tutoring job in the middle of nowhere. She needs the money so she accepts the job. What she never expected was to be kept captive after her tutoring job was finished. What happens next leaves her with both physical and emotional scars. Love is not always hearts and flowers. Sometimes love is complicated, dark, twisted and unexpected. 

This story is written in multiple POV's. I have to admit that it was distracting at the beginning of the story, but I did end up enjoying reading all of these POV's once Nora revealed what happened to her. Nora is an intriguing character and her story is chill inducing. Each supporting character in this story plays an important role in Nora’s life. I absolutely loved my first K. Larsen book and it will not be my last. I’m really excited to read her previous work and I’m very intrigued about how things ended in The Tutor. If you are looking for a dark, twisted and captivating story, look no further! The Tutor is the next book you need to add on your TBR list! 


I give, The Tutor, by K. Larsen, 4.5 intriguing, intense, twisted, page-turning stars!

About the Author:

You talk. I listen. You move. I watch. You don’t know I exist, but I learn from watching you. I absorb the minute details you emit. I use them. I write. I take the smallest sliver from you, about you and I piece it into a character. It takes so many little slivers to create a whole, complete being. I watch people. I hear words, individual words from many different conversations floating around. I stockpile them away. I rearrange them into to something else. Nothing goes to waste. There is a little of each one of you in each person I create. You are all of them and they are all of you. Good combined with bad. Kind mixed in with evil. All the little slivers compound on each other creating something bigger. That is how my writing works.

I am an avid reader, coffee drinker, and chocolate eater who loves writing. 

If you love suspense and romance and a good read you’ve come to the right spot! I may mess with your head a bit in the process. Enjoy! 

I have a weird addiction to goat cheese and chocolate martinis, not together though. 

I adore my dog. 

He is the most awesome snuggledoo in the history of dogs. 


I hate dirty dishes. 

I like sarcasm and funny people. 

I should probably be running right now… because of the goat cheese….and stuff.
