~BLOG TOUR~ REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Taken by You by Carlie Sexton

Book Description:

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.

goodreads-badge-add-plus 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?
My Review
Life isn’t going to ever be normal for Kate. After suffering through the worse event in her life Kate is trying to come to terms with the life she now has to live. As long as Roger is on the loose Kate will not be free. Now on the alert and hiding, Kate must deal with everything else in life as well as Rogers hunt for her.

Kate and Neil are finally together and are happy as ever but doubts threaten their relationship and Kate must come to terms with Neil’s love and devotion for her. While she questions everything he does, Neil works to show her that she is the love of his life and he would do anything to protect her. 

But Roger will do anything to have Kate and as he tries to find her he also has to put up with a new girlfriend and his son’s mother. Two women that are in the way of him getting back Kate. Two women that he would not second guess in killing. Because killing is second nature to Roger.

Taken by You is Kate’s story separate from Rogers hunt. It is filled with Neil and Kate’s passion, Kate’s doubts and stubbornness, and Rogers psychotic behavior. 

But I must mention that sadly, Taken by You suffered from the second book syndrome. Although the writing was better there was a lack of action and too much mundane events.

I however will read the final book because we are left with a major cliffhanger! I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with these three and hopefully see Kate get her HEA.

Happy Reading!
