About the book:
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.

My OpinionI don't normally like the thriller/suspense type of books (I am the lovey, dovey, romance book lover type!), but when I read the description of Friend Me, I was super intrigued about this modern day suspense book and the modern day issues it talks about: internet, online dating, cheating, unfaithfulness in a marriage, technology, and overworking and stress at a job. I also really like that it is a Christian suspense book - you don't find that very often!
This book was really well written and definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. However, it gave me nightmares (for real!) at night. With that said, I knew it was a well-written book but not the type of book I enjoy reading. I don't like to get nightmares from books.
