GR's Summary:

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?

My Take on this Journey:  

Taken By You, by Carlie Sexton is the phenomenal sequel to Fallen For You.  The sequel takes off from the cliffhanger that was dropped at the end of book one.  

Roger returns from his trip to Germany to find that Kate and Charlie are gone, along with all of their belongings, when he creeps into their apartment to voyeur into her bedroom while Kate sleeps.  

Roger is a serial killer and a psychopath, who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.  Roger has an entitlement issue.  He thinks that he was deprived as a child, and needs attention along with anything he wants at any cost.

The girls made their move as soon as Roger left, and went into hiding.  Charlie moved in with her boyfriend, Mitch and Kate moved in with her boyfriend, Neil.   Kate is forced to quit her job at Nordstrom and work for Neil.  She stays in College, but has a body guard that Neil has hired to protect here from Roger. 

Roger has found a new girlfriend, Rose #2, and still has Pauline, (Jacobs mother) to contend with.  He has brought his son, Jacob, and Pauline into his apartment to stay until they find a place of their own.

There are accidental run in's, and a lot of twists and turns in this novel.  I do not want to give away any of the angst filled scenarios, but this novel will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.   YES...another CliffHanger!!!!! AGH... I'm dying.  I have to get my hands on Given To You, the third book in The Killer Next Door series.  This is a must read people!  

Do not miss out out Ms. Sexton's series.  I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed.  Put this on your TBR now!  A lot of secrets are revealed in this segment, sorrowful moments come to pass, and surprise engagements announced!  

Ms. Sexton has flawless writing abilities, and will put you in step with each and every character and their respective situation as it is unveiled. 

I give Taken By You, 5 Riviting, Pain Staking, Lust Filled, Romance Ensconced, Blood Soaked, Tight Rope Falling... Stars!!!
