Release Day & Review: FALLEN FOR YOU by Carlie Sexton

Fallen for You

By: Carlie Sexton

A Thrilling Contemporary Romance

Release Date: June 6, 2013


If you believe your life is the sum total of your choices, what do you do when things just don’t add up? You are about to find out. It won’t be pretty. It won’t be dull. And surely, it won’t be safe. In fact, making just one wrong choice could put evil at your bedside watching you sleep.

And so it is with Kate Simmons, a young woman who, by choosing to regain her life, actually puts it at risk by the very choices she makes. After unimaginable heartbreak stops her world on a dime, Kate falls into a three-year blackness of self blame that brings her to the edge of life, itself. As time finally brings light back through tiny cracks of renewed desire, Kate moves out of the prison she made for herself in her mother’s home to find a new reality, rooming with her best girlfriend, Charlie. 

Yet, to be free is to be vulnerable, and Kate’s choices more than ever mark a splattered line between being happy and being dead. 

Care to choose? Here’s your menu: 
A strangely alluring building manager so possessed with wanting you for his own, he’ll bury more than the fact he has a girlfriend; a buff college student for whom you are clearly hot, as are all the other girls on campus; a pushy lawyer who is as handsome as he is intoxicated with conquest, who doesn’t take no for an answer, who gets what he wants — always.

Sometimes, it’s whom you choose. Sometimes, it’s who chooses you. If you’re Kate, it’s both, and it puts you on a perilous road where good looks and humor are the thin masks of jealous delusion and utter violence.

You’re in trouble when the sum total of your choices is written in blood red.

Heat Rating:  HOT

When I picked up this book to start reading it I thought I knew where it was going go and was WRONG!  This was definitely a book that had a chilling stalker, murder, suspense and romance all rolled into one really great story.

Kate and her best friend Charlie are finally moving into their own place, this is where we are introduced to Roger.  Roger is the manager of the apartment building the girls move into and he is keeping close tabs on Kate.  Little does Kate know that this one decision would change not just her life, but so many others.  

After taking a break from life Kate is finally ready to jump back in and start living.  She has a full time job, a new place to live and is going back to finish her college education.  On the first day of classes she encounters Mark, the good looking guy that every girl wants a piece of but Kate and then Neil, the lawyer and her mentor that stands her up for their meeting.  Kate soon starts getting lots of attention and not all of it is the good kind.  (I will stop there so you can read this story as it is supposed to be read; unspoiled)

Carlie Sexton did a great job of creating these characters, letting the reader learn bits and pieces of their lives without dumping it all on you at once.  Honestly, this book really impressed me, not too many story tellers can creep you out, make you squirm and get you excited to turn the next page, but Carlie did.

This is a three part series, so there is a bit of a cliffhanger so we all will have to wait and see what happens in the next book, coming out this summer.  I am very thankful that Carlie sent me this book to review!  I don't typically read romantic thrillers and I might have let this one slip by, and that would have been a shame indeed! I can't wait to get started on book two and I will be looking for more amazing things to come from Carlie Sexton!  A great debut that you should add to your reading list this summer!!

*This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review*
