NOBODY BUT US by Laure Van Rensburg

He’s a well-respected college professor. She’s a young and eager-to-please student.

He thinks he’ll get what he wants. She thinks he’ll get exactly what he needs.

One twisted path.
A game of cat and mouse.

What the W H A T?

I’m going to be very vague on plot because I want other readers to feel the surprises I did. This is a story of coupledom with characters who are not likeable in any way. Who to root for? Who is the worst? By the end I have firmer feelings on this but it is still a conflicted feeling.

This story sets up an eerie vibe almost immediately…a house in the middle of nowhere, an ongoing snow storm, creaky noises. That atmosphere was very palpable. I liked how the plot got straight into the story without much hanging around. You don’t have to wait for dubious action, it comes in waves.

This thriller was a quick read, easy to get into and it kept my attention. The story was narrated from three main POVs, one something of a mystery. I enjoyed the reveals when they came and there was something ultimately sickly satisfying about where things ended up.

3.5 – 4 stars, rounded up.

Thank you to Penguin Books for the review copy.
