John Faubion in his new book, “Friend Me book coverFriend Me” published by Howard Books brings us into the lives of Scott and Rachel Douglas.

From the Back Cover:   “You’re afraid you are becoming unfaithful, aren’t you?” 

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. 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 Me 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.

Stress and poor communication at home can lead to the spouses drawing even further from each other and unfaithfulness.  They finally build a social platform where you can build your own friend and eliminate the need for picking and choosing friends on other sites.  Are you still being unfaithful even though the female you are communicating with supposedly doesn’t exist?  How does this new friend change the dynamic in your marriage?  What will you do when this friend tries to destroy it?  These are the questions Mr. Faubion sets out to answer in this very exciting thriller.  He also gives us a chilling look at the dangers of the Internet and social websites.  We need real friends, real individuals who can understand us and be there for us when we need them and we can be there when they need us.  “Friend Me” is an exciting page turner that will keep you reading and flipping pages as fast as possible.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down.  Mr. Faubion has given us characters that are marvelous, meticulously crafted, and each one literally breathes on the pages. “Friend Me” is a well done novel that I liked a lot.
