The book is part of a set called "the Killer Next Door" series but no kind of thrilling suspense has actually happened. Im thinking maybe they should just rename this the "Creepy Peeper" series , cause that's all that's happening here...

Also the men in this book.... could someone please gag me???

• Neil: corporate attorney, humanitarian & greek sex god
• Mark Baxter: the younger guy, flirty playboy & all American man candy

Loved this debut novel from Carlie Sexton. Kate and her best friend Charlie are moving in together. Everything seems to be great. Kate is trying to move on from a tragic event that put her life on hold and now she seems to be on the right track. That is until the manager of her new apartment starts doing some weird stuff. He seems to have a crush on her and is a little over protective.

This mystery romance had me on the edge of my seat by the end of book 1. Can't wait to read more of this series

I really had a hard time deciding whether or not to give Fallen For You four stars or five… but I was so speechless when I finished reading Fallen For You, I realized I had to give it all five stars. With that said the only reason there was ever a question in my mind about how many stars it deserved was because of the ending of this book. Without giving anything away, it was NOT a bad ending at all, just left me wanting so much more!
This book was amazing! I am not sure I can even find the right

Carlie brings a whole new meaning to romance/suspense/thriller!! Freaking Hell!! My heart was racing, hands were sweating, and I would've been pacing could I read and walk at the same time. All of these were reactions to my fear and anxiety Carlie's words provoked through her writing to truly experience the emotions of the characters. Don't get me wrong, the heat from this book elicited the same reactions! The main character is Kate and s

CHRISTINA'S BOOKREVIEW

"I want to know everything about you. I want to figure out what makes you tick. I want hours to go by with you and have it seem like minutes..."

First let me start off by saying "OMG! Do you see that beautiful cover?" That was my first reaction when I was asked by the author to read and review this book. I then read the synopsis and honestly I didn't know if I wanted to read about a "love box". But then I kept looking at the cover and I just HAD to find out what was behind i

I would give this story 5++++ stars it was that amazing. There are no words to describe how deeply I was drawn into this book, Carlie Sexton did an fantastic job with the plot and character development. There are so many layers to this book that you cannot put it down, you just want to make it to the next page and see what is going to happen. This book has it all, there is love, suspense, creepy stalkers, tragedy and second chances.

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 i

I'm not sure how to classify this book. I'm not sure if it's erotica or a mystery because it has both. Frankly, I thought the a few of the sex scenes were gratuitous and unnecessarily graphic but hey, I guess that's what's selling these days.

The story starts out with Kate and her best friend, Charlie, getting an apartment together and meeting with the manager, Roger. Roger had the hots for Kate right from the beginning and I thought he was going to be the love interest. No. She didn't return his

Fallen For You is not like the books I typically read after reading a few of the reviews on it I thought I'm reading this it sounds interesting. Well let me tell you it was something. It kept me turning the pages it was creepy, goose bump inducing, with OMG, and WTH moments.

Carlie Sexton really does an amazing job with this erotic, sexy thriller with twists, turns and some seriously hot guys. You are literally holding your breath waiting for the other shoe to drop. I will say there is a serious creepiness factor that has you covered in goose bumps and maybe even sleeping with the lights on...

Kate Simmons, a young college student, and her best friend Charlie decide to move out of their parents homes and get their own place. They find what they believe to be the perf

My Mom loved this book and I had to immediately get her book 2 and 3. I have not finished this book yet but suspense is not always my cup of tea like it is my Mom's. I know I will go back and finish cause if Mom liked it as much as she did it has to be really good. I think I was just not in right frame of mind to read a good suspense when I picked it up to read. That is if I can ever get my copy of it back from my Mom she seems to have claimed it lol
