Review: The Tutor by K Larsen

*****5 STARS*****

Nora needs money and to escape home after a tragic event. When she stumbles onto a position for a summer Tutor for Holden's younger sister it seems like the perfect solution. She arrives at his isolated cabin with no running water, internet, cell service or electricity. When the summer ends and she is ready to return home, Holden has other plans.

K. Larsen is an evil genius and I love her for it. The Tutor was a complete mind fuck that had me on the edge of my seat from page one. It is told through multiple point of viewers and jumps from present time to the past, as Nora's time in the cabin is slowly revealed. This is the kind of book I would do a disservice to if I shared too much of the plot. The wonder of it is being able to watch (with heartbreak, suspense, confusion and even horror) as the story unfolds. This felt like the old-school dark romances I have always loved so much. It is all about choices and how the choices we make can change our lives forever. This is a perfectly executed tale of Stockholm syndrome that will have you at least a little bit wrecked and disturbed in only the best possible way. This is a must read for fans of dark romance/suspense.

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
