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.

I'm not really sure what to think of this book. I feel like a heel since so far many of the readers have actually liked it and I really didn't like it. I just don't see what all the fuss is about. It was very repetitive in certain areas, that got old really quick and there was just something about Kate's character that I just couldn't relate to. I felt bad for her because of what she went through but that's about it. The story itself was just going on and on, focusing on Kate and Neil, which is fine if this was a regular love story, but as per the synopsis and reviews this book is about a crazy ass serial stalker/killer, except it takes forever to reach that point....
Plus points for the sexual interactions between Kate and Neil; and also for the POV of the various characters...not sure I want to commit to the next two books though...this one was just too damn slow moving for me....

This was a very enjoyable read and I finished it in one sitting as I could not put it down.
It moved along at a fabulous pace, had fantastic characters that you could not help but fall in love with and a story that keeps you interested from beginning to end.
Carlie Sexton is a great author and I have enjoyed all the books that she has written that I have been lucky enough to have read.
Way to go.

Very intense read. I normally don't read books with this much suspense and violence, needless to say it is different. Enjoying it isn't the
right term to use, but it is really good! And I only say enjoying it isn't the right term because of the senseless death the stalker seems to
want to inflict. Although I'd highly recommend this book, maybe I'm a little paranoid in asking why don't people pay closer attention?

3.5 Stars from me!
As many people who follow my reviews know, I hate series. But when I have an option to read all the books in the series at once? I hardly ever pass that up! Who would when you don’t have to wait for the other books to come out and you can just follow the story right from the start?
I started these books with an open mind; in all honesty I didn’t really remember the blurbs of the books so that could have helped on that matter! But when I started this book it drew me into the story and I didn’t want to put the book down. There were actually aspects of this book that I actually had to put the book down for the night because I was worried it would cause bad dreams!
In this book we are introduced to Kate, who is woman trying to get her life back on track. At times, I felt for her and what she had been through, but other times I was just in shock about her actions. There was just something about her that made it really hard for me to connect to her but I did still enjoy the stories.
We also meet Roger, who is the apartment manager for the building that Kate and her best friend have just moved into. Right off the bat, I got those crazy vibes from Roger, you know the ones that I am talking about! But more about him in the later books.
There is also Neil, and a few other characters who are introduced in this book. All of them were very important characters in the story. However, there were so many characters in this book that had such important roles it was hard to follow what all was going on.
The story itself was good, but I felt like it was really “wordy”. Kate, who is only 24, talked like she was in her late 30’s, actually all the characters seemed to do that. There were also parts of the story that just didn’t seem to be “placed” in the right spots.
Overall though, I did like the story and I would continue on to reading the second book in the series.

Debut novel from Carlie Sexton and it had me from page 1. The story had it all, love, obsession, pain and suspense.
Kate Simmons is a beautiful young college student trying to find herself. After suffering a loss and closing herself off she is ready to start putting her life back together. But that is where it all begins. Kate finds herself at the center of the attention of not 1 but 3 men.
Roger is the manager of the apartment building where Kate and her best friend Charlie have just moved in. Roger is taken with Kate from the start and is determined to have her at any cost. His tenacity and lengths that he was willing to go to just be near Kate were unnerving.
Mark is a fellow student of Kate. He is easy on the eyes and makes some feelings start to stir in Kate. However, the entourage of swooning girls following him around has Kate put off. She is not looking to be just another notch in Mark’s bedpost . Then there is Neil Statton. Let the swooning begin. Neil is super sexy attorney who is used to fighting for what he wants and getting it. Kate’s refusal go out with Neil has him even more determined to win her over. He wants Kate and will pull out all of the stops to prove it. Kate and Neil’s chemistry was off the charts! I loved their attentiveness to one another and playfulness. Neil was determined but never pushed Kate for more than she was ready to give. Yes, their relationship evolved quickly but who is to say how long it takes for two people to fall in love.
So what’s a girl to do when unwanted advances do no cease and people start to go missing? Who will win Kate’s affection? Pick up Fallen For You and take the ride with Neil, Kate and Roger. You won’t be disappointed. Then see where their journey continues in Taken By You.
