I really enjoyed the book. Loved "Katie", Ryker not so much. I really had a hard time how the author introduced him and had a bit of an issue getting over it. I know it was to show how he felt about "Kate" was different, but I still struggled with it. For a debut book, this is well written and flowed really well. The only reason for the lost 1/2 star....The huge time ju

I received this book from a friend, and I'm so glad I did, I loved it.

Our story starts with Kate, self preservation is high on her list having been in witness protection since a young child, she has developed an ability to blend in until she opens her mouth.
Sexy, sassy, and very weary of running. When her car breaks down in the butt end of Mississippi, she managed to get it towed to the nearest town, where she meets smart mouthed, good looking, tattooed mechanic Rykker, the chemistry begins, the

Holy wow! This book had a little bit of everything for anyone. Suspense, mystery, action, romance. All of it. Kate is literally running for her life - but I won't tell you why - when her car breaks down. Which is the last thing a girl on the run needs. She meets Ryker who works at the car shop and is a straight shooter wrapped up in a manwhore lifestyle.

This book was like a movie! I feel like I could watch this in the theater for all the different twists and turns this book had.

Look out indie world, we have a new author to watch out for! Kerri Ann's debut novel, Charged, is a roller coaster ride of likeable characters, sex, intrigue and suspense. This book took so many twists, and most of them I never saw coming. If you're looking for a raw, gritty read to keep you on your toes, Charged is the book for you. Can't wait to see what Kerri Ann has in store for us next.

Debut Author Kerri Ann brings us an Alpha to become our next book boyfriend. I haven't been this enamored by a bad-boy man-whore turned steaming, hot lover with eyes for one woman in quite awhile. Ryker is a perfect, growling, intimidating, panty-melting, blue-collared, tattoo-covered wet dream!!
I completely got lost in the friction, banter, and hilarious confrontations between Ryker and "Kate", who we find has a past aligned with his, and more in common than initially thought. Mutually instant

Wow! This was a great debut novel! I'm definitely a fan. It starts off with "Kate", who is running from GF. You don't know who that is or much about why she's running, so of course I'm instantly intrigued by the mysteriousness of it all. She gets stranded while on the run and enter super hot mechanic named Ryker. I don't know about you, but something about a sexy a$$ mechanic...well let's just say I like it!

So I pretty much fell in love with Kate and Ryker. She's definitely a spark plug

Good n' Hot!

This is my first book by this author, I received it as a gift. Kate is running from a man named GF, when her car breaks down. I love the name of her car! Sorry, no spoiling! Anyways, she breaks down and is towed to a shop in town. There she meets Ryker. Ryker is hot and a jerk. But HOT! He doesn't have time to fix her car, plus it's not worth it. But Kate is determined and he says he'll do it. Something about her gets to him. Ryker works at a garage/chop shop. That shop has ties to t

A little of everything in this book, mafia, cars, mystery, love, blood, and a twisted family tree that will leave you guessing. You name it Charged has it and the twist along the way make it so exciting I had to read it all at one time.

The start of the book I knew that Kate had been on the run from GF. (Now who GF was I didn't have a clue till about chapter 15 so just give it time it will make sense.) In some kind of twisted fate she breaks down just outside of the town Ryker lives in.

A fantastically written hard hitting danger tasting storyline. Author Kerri Ann snagged my attention with this emotionally packed roller coaster of a ride. The author has a way of describing her characters that puts you in the drivers seat. I feel I know each and every character due to her incredible descriptions. This story is well written in that it pulls you along at such an intense level that I just couldn't put it down. The heat between the main two people is an adventure of it's own. You w ...more

Kate is on the run and as her story begins we really have no idea why except that she is really afraid of being in one place to long for fear of being found. When her car breaks down that fear is in the forefront, but then Ryker comes into her life as the mechanic who works on her car. There is definitely some serious chemistry going on between the two of them. I have to admit to not really liking him doing his manwhore thing right in front of her to begin things off, but he definitely made up f ...more

I enjoyed every page of this book. Georgia has been on the run for a very long time. Who would have thought her breaking down in Mississippi would totally change her life. She was just expecting to get her car fixed and head back on the road. That is until Ryker happened. There was something about him that just grabbed her attention, even though he wasn't like the guys she usually went for. Even after all heck breaks loose, Georgia still is as strong as ever. Mississippi and Ryker have become tw ...more

This book was a really great, gritty read that completely kept me on my toes. I could completely relate to the characters and the writing just flowed and kept me wanting to know what was happening next.

The sex scenes were hit and Ryker was just swoon worthy. This was a great book that I really recommend.

Feisty Kate is on the run when her car brakes down leaving her trapped in rural Mississippi. Accustomed to moving towns quickly, she's less than thrilled to find out that she's stuck in town for a week while the repairs are being made.

Ryker is a man used to doing what he wants, whenever he wants. Women, booze, cars; they are his for the taking and he takes advantage of them frequently. He's quick to dismiss Kate as a spoilt college kid until she reveals a bit of her real personality simmering b

**I received a copy of this book for an honest review.**

Overall, I enjoyed the story. The backstory was complex, with everybody tied to everybody else and having two identities, but on the surface that worked for me. What didn't work as well was the fact that Kate/Georgia could "end up" back into the middle of it when her car broke down outside of some random town. It was too coincidental.

I liked Ryker and Kate/Georgia. They had their pasts, their reasons and explanations for who they were, and

Charged was a fast paced book from beginning to end. Well written with well-developed characters, it had the right amount of suspense and darkness. The mafia, a woman on the run and a dangerously sexy man. An intense book that is a must-read.

Intriguing, intense, and sexy read with twist and turns that will surprise you!

This was a raw and gritty story that will keep you on your toes. The characters are connectable that you will either love or hate. It was written with such detail that you felt that you were in the book going through all the emotions and scenes with them. The plot will keep you captivated and keep you guessing with the twists and turns. There was some funny banter between the characters that had me laughing out loud.

Avid reader, lover of words. To me, picking a book, is like grabbing a movie. If it's wrote well, the story leaps off the page at you, giving you characters that are tangible. I love to make them come to life, and I hope the stories of mine become well loved.
