Blog Tour: Given to You by Carlie Sexton

Carlie Sexton is at it again! Check out book 3 of her Killer Next Door Series... Given to You!!

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 tohave 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 fiancĂ©e 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.

Ch.1 Snippet

Kate smiled at the boy. “You are a very polite young man. It’s nice to meet you too,” she said, then turned back around.

“Thank you. My Mom always teaches me to be polite. Dad, when is Mom coming back from vacation and why didn’t she say goodbye to me?”

“She had to leave suddenly. Your grandma is sick, so your mom flew back to Germany to take care of her. She may not be coming back for a long time. She had to leave during the night when you were sleeping. That’s why she couldn’t say goodbye.”

“Oh,” Jacob said. “Is grandma going to be okay?”

“I think so. Your mom was just worried about her, so she decided to go see her. She wants Kate to take care of you. She told me to tell you that she loves you very much and for you to be a good boy.”

Roger’s explanation seemed to satisfy Jacob and he stopped asking questions. The pit in Kate’s stomach grew and her throat was burning from the rising bile. It was like someone had made her swallow hot coals. She knew Paulina hadn’t gone back to Germany without saying goodbye to her son. Roger had said Paulina was a good mother. She would have taken the time to explain to him that she had to go take care of her mother if that was the truth. Something had gone wrong and he had “taken care of” Paulina in his own special way.
