Given to You (The Killer Next Door #3) by Carlie Sexton



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.


Shasta’s 4 Star Review

I am a little lost for words right at the moment. Ms. Sexton has stunned me with the final installment to the Killer Next Door Series in a good way.

Given To You picks up right where we leave off with Taken By You. Kate has been kidnapped by Roger. Her fear is that unless she does what he says not only will he kill her, but he will go back and kill Neil as well. So she decides to act as if she is glad to be with Roger until she can find a way to escape or someone finds her.

Neil has prepared a wonderful day for Kate, but when she never shows and he can’t get a hold of her on her cell phone he starts to panic and realizes that Roger has taken her. He does everything in his power to find her, but is paralyzed with fear that he will not be able to find her or believes that he will not find her in time.

Let me just say that when I started this series I could not put them down. I had to know what would happen next and if Kate and Neil would end up together in the end or if Roger would succeed and either keep her away from Neil or if he would kill her like he did so many others. The only thing that I wish was changed a little was the ending. I would have like to have known more about the characters life at the end, but I am very glad that in the epilogue that she says there will be other books coming out with the other characters and that Kate and Neil will be a part of them. I think that she has a great set of books on her hands even with all the other characters and I am really looking forward to see what she comes up with next.
