The Tutor by K. Larsen
TITLE: The Tutor
AUTHOR: K. Larsen
GENRE: Dark
PUBLICATION: June 5th, 2017
After a party gone wrong and in desperate need of money for the fall semester of college, twenty-year-old Nora Robertson needs to escape her hometown.

She accepts a summer long live-in tutoring job for a handsome man and his little sister at a secluded home deep in the mountains.

There is no running water.

No electricity.

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. In a desperate attempt to find the girl, Nora will have to recount her time held captive.

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

THE TUTOR: Is a standalone dark novel by K. Larsen and is a new to me author but definitely won’t be the last. This swiftly goes from present to past in top gear so you need to really be stuck in the book to watch out for that otherwise it can become confusing, it’s also spoken in ‘Multiple POV’s’ 

HIM (Holden Douglas):
HER (Nora Robertson):
THE GIRL (Lotte, connected to Eve)
AUBREY (Best Friend of Nora’s)
AGENT BROWN (Detective in charge of the case)
EVE (Her story plays a huge impact on her abduction)
DR. RICHARDSON (physiologist) 

A man on the hunt for a woman to tutor his sister, a simple classified, a few interviews, no older than twenty, no family that will come seeking.

Not just any woman will do. She has to be the right kind and I am a master at finding them. 

Twenty-one year old Nora Robertson answers the ad of a lifetime in the local times about a man seeking a tutor for an eleven year old girl in a remote part of the country for three whole months, room and board covered, for three thousand dollars.

Who wouldn't jump at that chance?

Arriving at the place it’s secluded, no neighbours, no power, phone, live off the land, surrounded by native bush, cut off from the world, gates onto the property are all locked as they drive through.

I'm overwhelmed by the area, the remoteness of it. I'm nervous about doing my job well and about the domineering presence He exudes. 

Him: He said his girlfriend Eve had just left him recently and she was homeschooling his little sister, Charlotte aka Lottie which is where Nora comes into the story. 

Everything was going so well, until it wasn't. Held captive for nine months

MY THOUGHTS: This review was one of the freaking hardest ones I've ever had to write up, you have to go in blind, you have to keep your wits about you. This is one book that I've come away having never fallen in love with the hero. Did I feel compassion for him? Not really even that was pulled from me for him. I'm usually not a fan of multiple POV's but this author did an amazing job of bringing it all together. I think it had more of an impact on the story.
