Review ~ Fallen For You by Carlie Sexton


About the Book
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.

Review by Sue Ellen
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

When I first started to read this book I thought that this would be a book with the thriller part of just the love struggle between the same men wanting the same women. I was definitely wrong with this intial though. The author weaves the book in the beginning to make you think that you have it all figured out just to get a shock of twists as the story continues.  I love seeing beautiful covers so was more than willing to see what treasures lay in this one.

Kate and her best friend Charlie have decided to venture out and move in an apartment that they believe is a quiet and friendly complex. This was a fresh beginning for both and new opportunities. Even the complex manager, Roger, who lives next door appears to be nice.  After life has taken a toll, Kate has decided to start living again and including going to college. Strange things start to happen when the ladies move into the apartment complex first starting with Roger taking an interest in when Kate comes and goes. Then when she goes to college and meets Mark who is almost all of her classes and has all the attention of the women on campus but would like to know Kate. Also being new to the college, Kate is assigned a mentor Neil, who has stood her up but refuses to take no for an answer when he attempts to contact Kate. So Kate has three men who all are wanting her attention, which she is not used to, and to top it all off they are all amazingly sexy. However, not all of it seems to be good!! I will say this, all three of them have a different motive and very different personalities.

Overall I enjoyed this book and the story, only thing that I did have an issue with was a phase that was continuously mentioned, but the author picked it for a reason and I respect their choices. Carlie Sexton makes you keep wanting to go on when you read and also at times in the book you just stop and have a blow your mind moment.  As the author shows on the cover it is a first part of a book so there will be more and the second one is already out and available for purchase.  I would definitely recommend this book to everyone that enjoys romance/thriller/ and suspense all in one sitting. I will be starting to read the second one shortly.
