Review: Fallen For You

Fallen For You
By:  Carlie Sexton

Rating: 4/5 Cogs


If you believe your life is the sum total of your choices, what do you do when things just don’t add up? You are about to find out. It won’t be pretty. It won’t be dull. And surely, it won’t be safe. In fact, making just one wrong choice could put evil at your bedside watching you sleep.

And so it is with Kate Simmons, a young woman who, by choosing to regain her life, actually puts it at risk by the very choices she makes. After unimaginable heartbreak stops her world on a dime, Kate falls into a three-year blackness of self blame that brings her to the edge of life, itself. As time finally brings light back through tiny cracks of renewed desire, Kate moves out of the prison she made for herself in her mother’s home to find a new reality, rooming with her best girlfriend, Charlie.

Yet, to be free is to be vulnerable, and Kate’s choices more than ever mark a splattered line between being happy and being dead.

Care to choose? Here’s your menu:
A strangely alluring building manager so possessed with wanting you for his own, he’ll bury more than the fact he has a girlfriend; a buff college student for whom you are clearly hot, as are all the other girls on campus; a pushy lawyer who is as handsome as he is intoxicated with conquest, who doesn’t take no for an answer, who gets what he wants — always.

Sometimes, it’s whom you choose. Sometimes, it’s who chooses you. If you’re Kate, it’s both, and it puts you on a perilous road where good looks and humor are the thin masks of jealous delusion and utter violence.

You’re in trouble when the sum total of your choices is written in blood red.


When I first started this story, I was a bit concerned that you know right off the bat really that it's her landlord that's stalking her.  I suppose that makes sense, since the series is called "The Killer Next Door."  This threw me off, and I honestly was concerned I would quickly become bored without the intrigue of the mystery of who the "bad guy" is.  WOW!  I was totally off base, and completely wrong.  The author does a fantastic job getting into the mindset of a crazed stalker and murderer.  It's actually a bit frightening how realistic this book is.  With every action that Kate makes, I sat back and thought to myself, "I could easily see me making that same decision."  

I really enjoyed reading this book, even though you know who the bad guy is, there's still so much suspense that I wasn't able to put down the book.  I was sitting on the edge of my seat the entire time!  I just had to know what was happening next.  

This is definitely a must read for any NA reader.  I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment!
