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.
This is the third book in the Killer Next Door series and is not a standalone! This book picks right up after Book Two and Kate has been kidnapped by the obsessed Roger. He is a total psycho. This is a very suspenseful and thrilling book and is not normally what I read but it is very entertaining. Neil does not know what is going on. Will Kate be able to escape Roger? I couldn’t wait to find out whether Roger would succeed or whether Neil and Kate would have a happy ending.
Overall I was very satisfied with the conclusion and think that the author did a good job with these characters. I would say that this book and series will appeal to anyone who craves a thriller, romance and strong characters. I am looking forward to reading more from Carlie!
