***Taken by You by Carlie Sexton ~ Review***
How tragic it is when a caged spirit finally finds its freedom and — entranced in its ecstasy — is invited by that freedom into a cloaked dance with danger.
In Book One of this three-part epic, Kate Simmons — young and alluring, and finally out of her cage of grief — attracts more than attention. Intoxicated by her newfound independence, a blithe Kate is on her way to finding out that around the corners of life, some life-changing eye-openers await. As the story continues in Book Two and she begins to churn a dangerously turbulent trail, it is Kate who now has to snap to, to react, to outrun, or become yet another tortured victim who vanishes down the path of wrong choice.
Having already roiled the risky waters of jealousy, Kate moves in with Neil while Roger — an enamored oddity — visits his son in Germany. Upon his return and finding Kate gone, Roger’s predator mind becomes unhitched, and then unleashed, on the hunt of a lifetime. But whose life?
Step by creeping step, even as Kate’s future closes in on her, she attends — obliviously — to her new life, working through the challenges of fresh relationships, losing family members both to death and to deceit, questioning the depth of love.
Every path offers a choice. Every choice offers a consequence. And every consequence summons its due. As emotions swirl across fateful days and nights, some in Kate’s life will reach out to touch happiness in warm embraces, others to sever ties in bloody traces.
The stains of passion are frequently mistaken. The question here is who will be taken?
Nicole’s Review ~~~
5+++++ STAR RATING!!!!!
Hot Damn!!!!! Carlie Sexton did it again, my heart still hasn’t slowed down. We start a month after the ending of Fallen for You. Roger has just returned from Germany and is looking forward to seeing Kate again. Thankfully Kate and Charlie are no longer at the apartment complex. This sends Roger into full on panic mode and is more determined then ever to have Kate.
Kate and Neil are still in the newlywed faze of their relationship but it has been on warped speed thank to Roger’s crazy behavior. In this sequel there are many twist and turns along with new and old characters. Neil is such a sweet, caring, loving and supportive man. He loves Kate more than his next breath unfortunately like all relationships theirs is tested. When Kate begins questioning her relationship with Neil I have to say I was extremely torn because you can tell how much Neil loves her but at the same time what has caused her doubts is also pretty freaking serious.
I love how we get to know everyone in this book, we are given a little bit of everyone’s thoughts and feelings. You have this absolute whack job Roger who is looney tunes certifiable, this young, bright beautiful young girl and this ridiculously handsome rich lawyer. You are left constantly guessing what is going to happen next. What crazy thing is Roger going to do, who is going to be harmed next, is Neil and Kate’s relationship going to stand through all of this.
I can tell you I will be waiting somewhat patiently for the final book in this series. I cannot stress to you how terrific this series is. This is an absolute must read and I can promise it is at the top of my to be read again list. If you are looking for romance, suspense, a little bit of darkness this is the book for you. So what are you waiting for go grab your copy!!!
