When I began my journey of becoming an author, I had no idea all the blessings that would be bestowed upon me First, I have Taken by PDF/EPUB ² had the pleasure of meeting so many readers at signings and they have overwhelmed my heart with how much they love my books Their words of affirmation have given me pure joy and they are the reason I write To stare my stories with them is to give them a glimpse into my heart I ve also been tremendously blessed with bloggers who have tirelessly shared my stories, made teasers for me, promoted me, and just downright made me feel so welcome in the Facebook community I didn t share this initially, but the Killer Next Door series is about my own life experience living next door to a convicted serial killer The story has the facts of my interactions with him mixed in with fiction that I created to give it drama The main character Kate is actually based on me Of course, much of the story has my run away imagination mixed in as well And sadly, the romance part is all made up I didn t have a boyfriend at the time I lived next door to a killer I did however know one of his victims and he was very interested in getting to know me better I knowyikes I wrote Beholden to You as a spin off of the series It s my favorite book as I love Natalie and Mac s love affair It also has some thrill to it as I enjoy adding in twists and turns to make the pages flyI am about to release my fifth book, Forgotten by You, another spin off, but can be read as a stand alone Mitch and Charlie s story will have you rooting for a happy ending and I keep the twists comingReading has been a passion of mine my entire life I love it so that I dedicated my life to educating children As a teacher, I have had the profound pleasure of teaching children to read and explore their imaginations through a good book Nothing is better than watching a child read and find joy from the story My first graders are a gift that keep on giving every day Being a teacher is hard work, but the rewards far outweigh the sacrifices I have several that I want to turn into books Writing has become a passion that I dearly love In my free time, I enjoy reading of course , writing, movies, working out, and relaxing with my my handsome husband in Southern California We enjoy the relaxed lifestyle that California provides We have two beautiful dogs and no children.

    I didn t have a hard time getting into the story this time It literally picks up right where Fallen For You leaves off Kate is now living with Neil Roger has just gotten back from Germany after visiting his son Roger has quickly realized that Kate and Charlie have moved out and he s pissed He has no idea where she is but he s pretty sure he can find her.Kate however, doesn t want to be found yet also doesn t want to help herself not be found I didn t understand this part at all We know Ro I didn t have a hard time getting into the story this time It literally picks up right where Fallen For You leaves off Kate is now living with Neil Roger has just gotten back from Germany after visiting his son Roger has quickly realized that Kate and Charlie have moved out and he s pissed He has no idea where she is but he s pretty sure he can find her.Kate however, doesn t want to be found yet also doesn t want to help herself not be found I didn t understand this part at all We know Roger is a murderer We know he s after Kate But Kate doesn t want to quit her job at Nordstrom s nor does she leave school WTH In fact even though Neil keeps telling her she needs to quit, it s not until Charlie agrees that she finally does I m sorry but if some deranged lunatic killer is after me, I M GONE I would change my name if I had to I want to livethen I want to work at the mall I stayed irritated throughout this entire book Again, the writing was choppy and didn t really flow smoothly Dialogue didn t flow and came acrosslike statements I still had a hard time connecting to the characters Actually I take that back There was one character that I found myself understanding, Roger s ex wife, Paulina Roger convinces her to bring his son back to America and live with him She of course has no idea what he s been up to She soon figures it out and has to pretend to not know in front of Roger That was some good stuff.Overall, I felt like the author tried too hard with this book It just felt like filler when in reality this entire story could probably have been told in one book maybe two In the beginning of Taken by You, Kate suffers the loss of her father She flies back to his funeral only to find out that her bad relationship with him wasn t entirely his fault Okay, so there s going to be some turmoil and angst I can get behind that Kate and her brother head home to confront her mother One conversation is all we get They storm in, make accusations, mom is pretty nasty back, and they storm out That s it Kate is all sad and weepy but that s it No real answers No reconciliation.On the plane to her father s funeral, Kate meets a woman who s also on her way to a funeral They start talking and find they have the death of fianc boyfriend in common.Tragedy also strikes Kate s friend, Natalie Yes another death Kate refers about 20 people in this book to her grief counselor I ll tell you what, that many is making a mint off of Kate Natalie who had already lost her parents previously, is introduced to Mac Neil s friend from the first book Incidentally, Mac has also lost his parents.Not to mention we still have our murderer Roger on the loose and yes he does kill in this book too.All I could think about when reading this book was that it was full of death and sex What a combo.I actually found myself looking forward to the part with either Roger or Paulina I found Kate and Neil to be too sticky sweet Not enough substance for me I didn t like their interactions together or with others for some reason But Roger and his obsession with Kate is pretty interesting He doesn t really know her he just wants to have sex with her For some reason thought he s convinced she ll make a great mother for his son But he s crazy and a killer so who s going to argue with that logic Yes there is a major cliffhanger Yes I ll be reading Given to You, I have to see how this all plays out Does Roger get Kate Will he kill her Can Neil save her Will Kate and Neil get their happily ever after Maybe Kate will agree to be Rogers sex toy and mother to his kid I gotta find out

    Taken by You is the second book of a three part series These books must be read in order.This was a bit better than the first one in that there weren t so many sex scenes hey, I m not a prude but too much of that will ruin a good book and really focused on the story of Kate being stalked by Roger and what she was doing to avoid him.Roger is a ten on the creep scale He s gorgeous and talks a good talk but he s a psychotic killer He goes to extremes to find Kate and gets rid of the people w Taken by You is the second book of a three part series These books must be read in order.This was a bit better than the first one in that there weren t so many sex scenes hey, I m not a prude but too much of that will ruin a good book and really focused on the story of Kate being stalked by Roger and what she was doing to avoid him.Roger is a ten on the creep scale He s gorgeous and talks a good talk but he s a psychotic killer He goes to extremes to find Kate and gets rid of the people who stand in his way Nobody matters except his son, Jacob and although he doesn t kill him, he does something bad to him.In all honesty, I don t see what his big attraction to Kate is Yeah, she s a pretty woman but she s not the sharpest tool in the shed But I guess when you re a stalker, it doesn t matter I find her to be irritatingly whiny and overbearing.And what s with different characters having the same name Two women named Rose and two women named Jessica in the same story Sorry but I thought that was too much and even though it was easy to keep them separate, it was too much of a coincidence, especially with Rose It s an uncommon name and really, what are the chances of something like that happening It was unrealistic and distracting.I was irritated again when Kate s father died and she and her brother, Eric, decided to confront their mother on what had happened that had caused their divorce I didn t see how that played into the story and what difference it made But at that point, the story was dragging anyway I thought that whole scene was blown out of proportion and unnecessary.What was the point of Natalie hooking up with Mac Natalie was a coworker and friend of Kate s who seemedthan content to run the whole show and make decisions for Neil Neil and I will take you home Really Kate is meeting Neil s family for the first time and she s going to leave them and take him with her and go mollycoddle Natalie But I can see a story between Natalie and Mac and maybe the author was alluding to that.It seemed that Kate was on a crusade to getpatients for Dr Cox Everybody she came in contact with had some sort of issue where they needed to go see Dr Cox Let me give you his number Take out a billboard instead That s how irritating she was with that But again, at the point, the story was dragging.The real story is about Roger and that s what kept me reading.The cliffhanger at the end of this book was great and makes me want to read the last book It seems there are a lot of tedious details going on with Kate s life, which may have been the intent, while Roger is plotting, planning and killing There were a few grammatical errors Bare and bear do not have the same meaning and the wrong one was used on several occasions I found a couple of others that were easily ignored.This is a pretty good series overall
