**PRE-ORDER NOBODY BUT US AND MEET 2022'S MOST DANGEROUS COUPLE**

Steven Harding is a handsome, well-respected professor.
Ellie Masterson is a wide-eyed young college student.

Together, they are driving south from New York, for their first holiday: three days in an isolated cabin, far from the city.

Ahead of them, the promise of long, dark nights - and the chance to explore one another's bodies, away from disapproving eyes.

It should be a perfect, romantic trip for two.

EXCEPT THAT HE'S NOT WHO HE SAYS HE IS.

BUT THEN AGAIN, NEITHER IS SHE . . .

This book was everything I hoped it would be! The story of an esteemed professor and a supposedly innocent student on their way to a romantic getaway started never prepared my for the twists ahead! A marvelous and beguiling read.

Nobody But Us is a powerful novel that will hook you in from the very first page. I won't go into plot details as I feel that the less you know going into this book, the better. I will say though that the themes in this book are tremendously important. With stunning prose, fascinating characters and potentially unreliable narrators, this novel will keep you on edge until the very last page. Highly recommend.

Twisty and incredibly tense throughout, I really enjoyed this unusual thriller. The entire book was so intensely claustrophobic – I found it incredibly skilled in terms of the relationship between the two central characters that developed and was ultimately turned in its head. I also very much enjoyed the cabin setting.

Nobody But Us is being touted as a must-read of 2022, and I can completely see why. Topical, cleverly constructed and a book that was very hard to put down. The book starts at our end point, and I’m always a sucker for stories where we’re working our way up to the event and trying to piece together what has happened and why. This does something very common, but so well…and I can see this appealing on so many levels. A horrific crime scene. We know nothing more, but the detective called out to investigate is shocked. This tells us it’s bad. Then we get a perplexing jump, focusing on Ellie and Steven heading to a remote cabin for a romantic get-away. Steven is a professor with a chip on his shoulder about his father, and Ellie is a student who seems besotted with her lover. Be warned…sometimes things are not as they seem. While I found the initial shift in focus confusing, it is very necessary to make sense of the revelations that come out during the course of the book. I was expecting to be manipulated, but the reality of the deception showed the depths of the damage caused by such events. The focus throughout is on the couple and the things each is hiding. We slowly piece together the grim facts, and it’s at this point that I have to stop. Going into this not knowing more than we’re told is vital. I’m eager to see how this is received, but I’ll be recommending it widely. Thanks to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this prior to publication in exchange for my thoughts.

Wow. This was a powerful and emotive read. Ellie and Steven go to a secluded cottage to celebrate their sixth month anniversary. The fact that she calls him ‘professor’ suggests that he is older than her and perhaps, her teacher. The story is told from each of their perspectives and that of an unknown character. The book is very well plotted with the twists and reveals perfectly paced. The author’s vivid descriptions had me fully immersed in the book and feeling the character’s fear, especially in the final chapters- wondering who would survive. It is a difficult subject to tackle and good to see the author has added support group information at the end. Thanks indeed to NetGalley and the publisher.
