I haven’t always been this bad…

Up until recently, I was the kind of girl who wore white cotton panties and bent at the knees rather than the waist.

Pomp and circumstance changed all that.

Jaxson Cassidy was my first taste of bad, and I liked it more than I should have. Just not in the way I was meant to. I couldn’t help myself though. I found him irresistible. That sexy grin

The one thing I loved about this book, Jaxson Cassidy.

“To me Jaxson was an angel who fucked like the devil”.

I did enjoy this story, it was paced well, I did like the way the story was built up. But I struggled with the heroine. By the end of the book she redeemed herself for me but she took away alot of my enjoyment of this story. Sadie Banks really rubbed me the wrong way. She was constantly running when she knew no facts. I get she was scared, but damn girl stop running.... To me, she didn

Jaxson “Sundance” Cassidy was always the good guy. Sweet, polite and caring.

After capturing the precious moments of his ex-fiancée’s wedding, Jaxson is off to a new, fresh start. One he desperately needs.

“You know,” he said, “sometimes I think the only way to get by in this world is to step off for a while.”

Sadie Banks is also looking to “step off for a while” although

A non spoiler review.....

What a RIDE!!! WHOA!I wasn’t expecting this twisted thrilling turn of events. Wow she got me!! TOTALLY unexpected.

Sadie and Jaxson burned the pages with their hot as lava sex scenes. There was nothing and I mean NOTHING she wasn’t willing to do for him in. His Smoldering eyes captivated her at every turn.
I’m telling you HOT, HOT, HOT. I think my kindle was on fire. Their chemistry was undeniably off the charts. The way they connected you could FEEL IT.

Ok ... I'm a bit ... confused/sad/torn/something ... about this book and this review. I was so looking forward to this story. And book-alzheimer sufferer that I am, I couldn't remember that Jaxson would be the hero of this story. So when Simon appeared, I thought he was gonna be the hero and then he goes and does stupid stuff. The most stupid stuff ever. I almost stopped reading several times in the first 25% of the book. The very beginning of the story was already confusing for me. Sadie talks

When i read the blurp, i thought this book is about cat and mouse. The chase, power play, tricks and romance. But i end up with disappointment.

The sex is steamy but.... nothing else to support it. Not the story, not the character etc. I mean how a person just trust someone who just steal and lie to him?? And hire her to be his assistant? Just like that. Insta job. Weird.

And i can not help feeling that Jackson is sexually harrasing Sadie and demanding sexual gratification as punishment. Yike

For someone that used to hate reading let's just say that today I'm addicted. I used to say that reading was a waste of time and the fact that I hated the smell of books was another minus point to add to that reason. But after 3 years of reading non stop I'm a goner.
The fact that knowing new authors, authors that take our opinions in consideration was a way to make me want more and more.

4, Keep you on the edge of your seat, Stars!!

“This guy was everything. Rogue. Raw. Savage. And yet refined. He belonged on the runway. His eyes. Those abs. That scruff. He was so delicious.”

“A freak of nature that was truly beautiful. Rainbows were meant to symbolize all things good…Hope. Dreams. Serendipity. What a cruel joke. Every single one of those things seemed so very far out of my reach.”

“I hadn’t felt anything like this, ever. This was sex between strangers. Sex between two lost souls.

Sadie Banks has just lost her job, and to top that off, her past is creeping into her present and that just isn't good.
Jaxon Cassidy has just been the photographer at his Ex Fiance's wedding, yeah that sucks, now though he's sold up and diving into a new project that could launch his career.
This book, this book had me reeling !!!!! Seriously? Sneaky author but hell of a read!!!
At first after a particular event involving Sadie, and another person, my first reactions were, eek oh no no no, don't

I have to reflect a bit on the story line without giving to much away because it is something that I haven't read about before and it really intrigued me, I've read about enemies to lovers even second chance at love but this one doesn't fit into either of those tropes really even though the two people involved meet for the first time and then a second and one doesn't really like the other, but even this feels different, it felt as if the stars had aligned and the events that brought them togethe ...more

I was absolutely thrilled to now read this mode sexy, exciting and romantic book. As a top line professional photographer. In this amazing fabulous book. One I just couldn’t put down, not even once!!

As Sadie Banks kept looking she noticed this man was absolutely the most gorgeous, most delicious man she had ever seen. He was Perfectly fit and just so yummy. Making out as he kissed me was just too much, but as I realise Sadie couldn’t stop.

4.5* Don't Judge a Photographer by his Cover!

I have to admit, at first I found it a bit hard to follow and when the storyline was unfolding, I worried it was going to take me to a place I wasn't happy to visit........ but wow, boom, bang..... a chapter or two later and I was hooked - bit time! Even though I guessed one part of the plot early on, I needed to work out the how and why, which means I was captivated the whole way. This book is a little different to what Ms Karr writes, it is a little

This was a FANTASTIC Suspense-Romance...I don't know what you call it but I call it AMAZING.
Not going to give any of my favorite quotes from the book or a run down of each character because you need to experience this book blind. No spoilers.

This is one of those books you need to experience as it happens and not read reviews prior.

It's so good. A one click for sure!.

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Kim Karr. Her romances are always the perfect combination of endearing characters, touching storylines, and crazy passion. She can write fun and light-hearted romance to a 'T', but this right here is my absolute favorite type. Come A Little Closer was mysterious, suspenseful, and loaded with steamy sizzle... This is Kim Karr's writing at its best!

Sometimes you have to go through shit to get to the other side! I’m so glad they both found happiness together! It was fate that they met & fell in love! I love the sweet note about the Yellow Ribbon that it’s a symbol of hope, faith & Love! Gives me hope that one day I’ll find someone as amazing as Jaxson! Loved this book so much! One thing that stood out to me, that I loved was, that Jaxson had goals for himself & his career, that he didn't just want to shoot for one publication, he wanted to ...more

“I hadn’t felt anything like this, ever. This was sex between strangers. Sex between two lost souls. Sex. Raw. Savage. Real. Uninhibited. It was what I needed, and what he needed, too….at least for the moment.”

I have never read a book so sad and full of grief, but at the same time so sexy and filled with lust.
It was balanced perfectly. And I absoltely loved the ending.

‘Step off for a while’

The thought behind that phrase seems to be that everyone needs to veer off the path every once in a while…let things go and experience life in all its glory, but while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a little bad…with walking on the wild side, so to speak, when someone makes a string of bad decisions, resulting in a series of unfortunate predicaments, there comes a point when the reins need to be pulled and a step back on the well-thought out path needs to happe

I absolutely loved this story and the characters that were within this story. I loved that characters from the authors other book ‘The Thing About Love’ and we got to see what was happening with the main characters from that story. I loved the suspenseful element of this story and the way that the story kept me on the edge of my seat all the way through the story.

This is not just a love story. Yes, there is romance and hot scenes, but more than that, it is a mystery to be solved and a thrilling adventure into the life a "good girl" who ends up in the claws of evil.

Sadie just lost her job. No income, no prospects, and she feels lost. She just lost her father and his father's friend who was her safe haven. She is vulnerable and we know evil loves to manipulate vulnerable individuals.

Jaxson is the ultimate image of sex appeal on two legs. His newly found op
