How tragic it is when a caged spirit finally finds its freedom and — entranced in its ecstasy — is invited by that freedom into a cloaked dance with danger. In Book One of this three-part epic, Kate Simmons — young and alluring, and finally out of her cage of grief — attracts more than attention. Intoxicated by her newfound independence, a blithe Kate is on her way to finding out that around the corners of life, some life-changing eye-openers await. As the story continues in Book Two and she begins to churn a dangerously turbulent trail, it is Kate who now has to snap to, to react, to outrun, or become yet another tortured victim who vanishes down the path of wrong choice. Having already roiled the risky waters of jealousy, Kate moves in with Neil while Roger — an enamored oddity — visits his son in Germany. Upon his return and finding Kate gone, Roger’s predator mind becomes unhitched, and then unleashed, on the hunt of a lifetime. But whose life? Step by creeping step, even as Kate’s future closes in on her, she attends — obliviously — to her new life, working through the challenges of fresh relationships, losing family members both to death and to deceit, questioning the depth of love. Every path offers a choice. Every choice offers a consequence. And every consequence summons its due. As emotions swirl across fateful days and nights, some in Kate’s life will reach out to touch happiness in warm embraces, others to sever ties in bloody traces. The stains of passion are frequently mistaken. The question here is who will be taken?
Taken by you picks up right where Fallen For You left off. Kate moves in with her boyfriend Neil in an effort to escape Roger, the apartment manager at her old building who happened to be her neighbor. After finding out that Roger is a suspect in a possible murder and the fact that he won't leave her alone, Kate is freaked out. Roger returns with hopes of starting over with Kate only to find out she has disappeared. A distraught Roger will do anything to find her, stalk her friends, stalk her job and school, anything to make her his.
I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. This is a series that's mixed mystery and romance together for a thrilling read. In the first book, I wasn't sure what I thought about Neil, if I could trust him, but in this book he proved himself. Kate's character grew more in this book and was more relatable, I found myself being sucked into the book as if I were Kate experiencing everything with her. We are also left with another cliffhanger, this one was worse than the first and I'm biting my nail with anticipation for the next book!!
