"She felt no remorse for drawing blood. In the context of their relationship, it had its place."
For Max and Laurel, nothing is off limits when they meet in room 553. Their illicit affair is exhilarating, passionate—and dangerous.
Driven as much by compulsion as pleasure, Max can't stop. His mistress is Jesus on the streets, and Satan in the sack. But when things take a sharp and sudden turn for the worse, he finds himself ensnared in a trap of his own making.
Under heavy scrutiny by the police and the media, Max is hailed as a cold and evasive womanizer. He made mistakes, to be sure. But does that make him a killer?
Unnerving and addictive, Room 553 is a vivid and sensual psychological thriller that weaves a story of cruelty, reckless desire, and blind, bloody justice.
**About the Author**
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.

Room 553 is the first novel I have read from Britney King. It probably won't be the last either. This is supposed to be a psychological thriller. Well... Guess what!!!???!!! IT IS! I was sucked in at the start, then ended with a "Whoa!!!" With its well developed, complex characters and elaborate world building, Britney King weaved an deeply intricate story filled with crazy twists and turns that kept me guessing until it punched me in the gut with a surprising twist.
Room 553 is told in two POVs, Max and Laurel. Britney King expertly weaves a story of manipulation and deceit as I turned every page reading about her characters' lives and secrets. I was totally mesmerized with the story as it did a mind loop on me. Wow! I haven't read many psychological thrillers lately, but Room 553 was an intriguing and addicting read that piqued my interest with its twists and turns.
However, the pace slow to start (then again, that's just me), but it did not deter me from reading to the end. And, that is definitely something to get passed. Moreover, Britney King's brilliant writing drew me in that kept me reading, despite the slow start. So, yah, I would recommend not giving up on reading Room 553. It will definitely throw you for a twisted mind loop... All the way to the end.
