Tubing - Blog Tour

When I was contacted by RedDoor Publishing to take part in this blog tour, I jumped at the chance. I love taking part in blog tours and I liked the sound of this book.

Polly 28, lives in London with a 'perfect-on-paper' boyfriend and a dead-end job. Her banal existence is turned upside down late one drunken night after a chance encounter with a man on a packed train.

The chemistry between is electric and on impulse, they kiss, giving in to their carnal desires. But it's over in an instant, and Polly is left shell-shocked as he walks away without even telling her his name.

Polly begins a frantic online search, and discovers more about 'Tubing,' an underground phenomenon in which total strangers set up illicit, silent, sexual meetings on busy commuter tube trains. In the process, she tracks him down and he slowly lures her into his murky world, setting up encounters with different men via Twitter.

At first she thinks she can keep it separate from the rest of her life, but things soon spiral out of control. A horrific turn of events make Polly realize not only how foolish she has been, but how much danger she is in. Can she get out before it's too late?

My Review

So for me this is definitely a book of two halves. The first half is very 'steamy' and to be honest I am a bit of a self confessed prude. However, even though I don't usually read erotica I found that these scenes actually added to the story for me. So be warned before you read if you are not a fan of sex scenes in novels, it does contain quite graphic descriptions.

The second half was definitely more my type of thing, a thriller with a lot of twists that I didn't see coming. I honestly couldn't put it down until I found out what was going to happen next.

I actually can't decide if I liked the main character or not, I am not sure if the reader is supposed to or not. Throughout the book you find more of Polly's past and childhood, which may give some pointers to why she is the way she is.

For a first novel, K.A. McKeagney, has delivered a real page turner and I can't wait to see what her second novel is going to be like.

Thank you so much to RedDoor Publishing for asking me to take part and allowing me to read a real good novel.
