Friend Me

by  John Faubion


When a lonely wife and her frustrated husband each secretly pursue companionship online, neither dreams that a real woman is behind their virtual creations, threatening their marriage—and their lives.

Scott and Rachel’s marriage is on the brink of disaster. Scott, a businessman with a high-pressure job, just wants Rachel to understand him and accept his flaws. Rachel is a lonely housewife, desperate for attention and friendship. So she decides to create a virtual friend online, unaware that Scott is doing the exact same thing. As Rachel desperately tries to re-create a friendship with a friend who has passed, Scott becomes unfaithful and is torn between the love for his wife and the perfection of his cyber-girlfriend. But neither realizes that there’s a much larger problem looming…

Behind both of their online creations is Melissa, a woman who is brilliant—and totally insane. Masquerading as both friend and lover, Melissa programmed a search parameter into the virtual friend software to find her perfect man, but along the way she forgot to specify his marriage status. And Scott is her ideal match. Now Melissa is determined to have it all—Scott, his family, and Rachel’s life.

As Melissa grows bolder and her online manipulations transition into the real world, Scott and Rachel figure out they are being played. Now it’s a race against time as Scott and Rachel fight to save their marriage, and their lives, before it’s too late.

In today’s digital age, the Internet presents all kinds of opportunities to test our personal boundaries, and this exciting and suspenseful story raises important questions about the ethics of virtual relationships. Friend Me will open your eyes to a new—and terrifying—moral dimensions and how they play out in the real world.

This book started of with a bang, or you can call it a murder! I was kind of surprised, because I wasn’t expecting it, but it sure captured my attention!  Though this is a fictional book, the story is really scary because it enlightens readers to just what can happen when you seek the internet for the companionship. And this is just what the characters did in this story. I thought Rachel acted sort of childish and selfish, just thinking of herself. Scott’s character was much more solid, but even at that, we can see how the internet pulled him in to its forces. Reading this made me realize even more that there is loads of good stuff, and a wealth of information with internet access, but there are a lot of bad to go right along with it. The fake friend thing, it sounded a bit far-fetched, but then it is something that people would definitely be drawn into that kind of fantasy.

This was a really good first book by author John Faubion and I look forward to more from this author in the future. I received this book from the publisher Litfuse Publicity Group to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
