***Blog Tour & Giveaway for Given to You (The Killer Next Door 3) by Carlie Sexton***



To give is a virtue. But to give your very self, the ultimate bequest. Offered in love, it can be wondrous. Offered in desperation, it can be deadly.

In Book Two of this three-part epic, young and tempting Kate Simmons at last seemed to have reached a safe haven of happiness when she moved in with Neil, ambitious and persevering, both in his legal practice and his love life. Taking great care to protect his trophy and the surprise he had in mind for Kate, Neil hired security to accompany his soon-to-be fiancée on a scavenger hunt of a lifetime. As Book Three continues their saga, it is life itself that is in the balance when Kate becomes the hunted as the jilted Roger snatches his prey.

The obsessed minds of Neil and Roger now take aim squarely at each other — with a bare and exposed Kate directly in the crossfire. Knowing her very life will be the winner’s spoil, Kate stares agony in its ghastly face as it approaches for the death dance.

There is no time, no place, no safety in a war of fixation. A war in which the winner will be either the last one standing, or the last one to die.


Nicole’s Review~~


Right now my heart is still pounding from all the suspense and intrigue that Carlie placed in this story. From the very first book in this series I have been waiting and wanting to know how Neil and Kate story would end.

This book picks up exactly where the Taken by You left off, which I absolutely love. Kate has been kidnapped by the psychotic Roger and taken to a remote cabin. Neil has no knowledge to what has happen and Kate is thrown it to an impossible situation. Neil has given Kate the perfect day leading up to having the perfect evening when Roger snatches Kate. Roger is a brilliant man and has ever thing planned out and even appears to have back-up plans.

Kate tries to escape Roger only to be caught and he is beyond cruel and abusive to her. Mate then has to make a decision that is heart wrenching. Carlie drags you into the story to the point that you are constantly waiting for the next crazy thing to happen or for Roger to finally come completely unglued.

I found myself in the edge of my seat wonder will Kate be found will Neil and Kate get there happily ever after. Is Roger’s plan gonna be successful, who or when is the next person going to be hurt. There are so many levels to this story you have the absolute most sweetest caring couple who have suffered huge loses at such young ages. You will find yourself rooting for Neil and Kate, maybe if like me hoping Roger comes to a miserable end.

This story for me is beyond just a 5 star read. It has so much to offer all readers. Whether you love romance, a little domination, and suspense. Carlie did a fantastic job with character development to the point that even though Kate and Neil’s story maybe at an end you will still be craving hearing about her other characters.

~~Chapter 1 Teaser~~

“You didn’t answer me before,” Roger said, anger burning in his eyes. “Do you understand that you belong to me now? We are going to be together forever and no one and nothing is going to take you away from me.”
“Yes, Roger. I understand,” Kate said, her voice trembling as tears streamed down her face.
His eyes softened. “I don’t want to scare you. I know that we can be happy if you just give us a chance. Will you do that for me?”
Kate nodded.
“Good girl,” he said, kissing her on the cheek.
Kate walked into the restroom while her captor waited outside. She took a minute to assess herself. The pain in her hip was dissipating but she figured she would have a nasty bruise. That was the least of her worries. She took some toilet paper and wiped away the mascara that had smeared under her eyes.
Neil had done so much to make her day special; with breakfast, shopping for an exquisite gown, the pamper session at the salon…and now…now…this maniac. She gulped back a sob.
