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.

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
We are gonna jump right into it, and when I say it I mean my most favorite thing about this entire book. The POV’s.
The more POV’s the better for me and The Tutor provided just that. I loved the consistency of them all as well. They weren’t just all thrown together in random places, they were placed in all of the right places and exactly where they needed to be in the story. I imagine this is a hard task for authors to keep straight but props to K. Larsen.
“Only ever you.”
My other favorite thing about The Tutor was Nora and her many layers of psychological struggles. The good ones and the bad ones. She was an ever growing character with internal struggles that I couldn’t look away from as a reader.
My only complaint with this book was that I would have actually preferred MORE details in some of the chapters. They were almost too short for me and there were so many things that I wanted to know MORE about.
Another thing, the twist wasn’t insane or mind blowing like some of the reviews I read, I feel like they were over playing it but it was believable to me. It was realistic and to me that’s better than an over dramatic plot twist. Stockholm syndrome is real, y’all! And I love it.
This wasn’t the darkest and angsiest read I’ve ever read but it didn’t fall short for me. I was easily pleased. I might have provided the blurb but I always do that because I always read blurbs last. DO NOT READ THIS BLURB! Don’t do it! I mean it.
