Deadly Friend by K.D Bloodworth
Following the horrific events in MRPERFECT.COM, Dawn thought she would never escape the demons that had haunted her every waking moment. But months of therapy finally freed her from the memories, allowing her and John to start their lives afresh with a new home in a new town. Slowly making new friends and gaining the confidence to take a part-time bar job, life was better than it had been for a long time.
Then, the past Dawn had tried so hard to forget caught up with her.
Awaking to her worst nightmare, beaten, bound and bloody, Dawn dared not move, fearing she would wake the monster in the room.
The man sleeping in the chair looked like her friend. Something was horribly wrong.
I lived in three different states before I started school, but then lived in the same house with my parents until I was nineteen. The wander lust took over and since then I have lived in nine different states and have lost count of how many different addresses I have owned.
Other than my family and dog, I have two other loves in life, photography and writing. The writing came to me later in life when I decided I could write some good fiction based on real life experiences. Truthfully, many of the things I have done most people would think I was making that stuff up. So, I started changing names and some places, adding a bit of spice, and my writing career began.
People often ask me if something in the story happened to me and all I can do is smile. Some secrets are best well kept.

This was a great story. I did not read the first book Mr.Perfect.com, but this story filled in enough for me so that I was able to read this one on it’s own. The story was so well written that it really drew me in and made me feel as though I was a part of the story.
Dawn convinces John that in order to finally be healed and able to move on with their lives, a trip to Montana would help. On the trip the find a beautiful little town that they decide to move to. However, John has now been offered a job overseas and Dawn will complete the move on her own. This is a big step for Dawn to be alone for so long after her first attack. This story showed how strong Dawn was and how she found her way to overcome all that she had endured. It also showed John that Dawn was not as broken as he thought she was and how their marriage had survived so much and that they were able to find a life together and move on.
I loved Dawn in this story and her strength was undeniable. She was able to overcome so much and she survived twice. I received this book to read as an ARC in exchange for an honest review and was very pleased to have read it. The suspense and psychological mind games in this book really drew me in. Although some of the story was disturbing, the plot and the writing were excellent. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes psychological thrillers and suspense stories. I give this book a 4.5 star review.
