REVIEW: As you’ve probably figured out by now, Kiersten Modglin has quickly become my go to author for Thriller/Suspense novels. If you want to be scared, get your heart pounding and love sitting on the edge of your seat, you need to pick up any one of her books. I finished The Roommate last night and I can assure you it lives up to her reputation.
This book was a little different than the others I’ve read. It gave me a sense of impending doom from the beginning. The climax came at the end of the book. There were a few instances I felt the need to scream at Wes and shake his wife Addy. Then there was Elias. He was just creepy and I will never eat a Twizzler again without thinking of him. Trust me on this, you’re gonna have to read the book! Oh! Brody! Nevermind… read the book.
I love all things Kiersten Modglin. She is prolific and you never have to wait long to get another fix. She never seems to write from a formula and all her books seem to be wildly different. She is a momma and a wife. Down to earth and lives for her books. She is awesome! If you haven’t picked up one of her books yet, you better hurry up! What are you waiting for?
I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review. Thank you!
SYNOPSIS: He thought his life couldn’t get any worse…
Wesley Gates is down on his luck.
He’s drowning in debt.
His demanding career isn’t letting up.
And, to top it all off, after years of ignoring their failing marriage, his wife has had enough.
Heartbroken and in desperate need of a place to stay while he gives his wife the space she’s asked for, Wes is shocked when he runs into a familiar face from his past. As they catch up, Wes quickly learns his old classmate has an extra room and a non-existent social life. He can’t help feeling grateful to spend time with someone who remembers who he was during their glory days, long before his life fell apart. So, when Elias offers to rent out his spare bedroom, it seems like the answer to all Wes’s problems. Wes takes his old friend up on the offer without hesitation.
Living with someone you barely know is better than living with a stranger… Isn’t it?
But soon, Wes realizes moving in with Elias may have been a mistake.
Between the wild mood swings, strange occurrences, and total disregard for his new roommate’s privacy, Wes begins to wonder if Elias will be his savior or his worst nightmare.
When his wife reveals devastating news that destroys the final bit of shaky ground Wes was standing on, his new roommate may be all he has left.
Maybe that’s what Elias wanted in the first place…
Or maybe it’s all in Wes’s head.
Elias invited him in…
Will Wes ever be able to leave?
