Friend Me

Friend Me is John Faubion's debut novel, and I HIGHLY recommend that you get yourself a copy when it releases on February 4, 2014!

I loved this book, and typically I'm not a huge fan of suspense.  However, I could not tear myself away from this story - I was completely fascinated and intrigued the entire time.  I had to keep reading to find out how it all would end.

This book explores the possibilities of just how far social media and technology can go -it gave me chills! This is totally a "ripped from the headlines" novel, and I enjoyed every minute of this 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.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm glad that when you decided to like a suspense book, it was mine!

On the tech side, everything I wrote is possible with today's technology. There are already many people who live virtual lives on social networks and websites like Second Life. People who rarely interact with others. This is real world for many.

There are few things that rank up there with the importance of living a consistent Christian life, and being faithful in your marriage.

Feel free to visit my website at and follow my blog there. I try to keep it interesting with all sorts of internet security and fraud information.
