BLOG STOP + GIVEAWAY ♥ Given To You, by Carlie Sexton



To give is a virtue. But to give your very self, the ultimate bequest. Offered in love, it can be wondrous. Offered in desperation, it can be deadly.

In Book Two of this three-part epic, young and tempting Kate Simmons at last seems to reach a safe haven of happiness when she moves in with Neil, ambitious and persevering both in his legal practice and his love life. Taking great care to protect his trophy and the surprise he has in mind for Kate, Neil hires security to accompany his soon-to-be fiancé on a scavenger hunt of a lifetime. And it is life, itself, that is in the balance when Kate becomes the hunted as the jilted Roger snatches his prey.

The obsessed minds of Neil and Roger now take aim squarely at each other — with a bare and exposed Kate directly in the crossfire. Knowing her very life will be the winner’s spoil, Kate stares agony in its ghastly face as it approaches for the death dance.

There is no time, no place, no safety in a war of fixation. A war in which the winner will be either the last one standing, or the last one to die.

Chapter 1~Part 4

So, she complied without resisting. Roger took a zip tie from his pocket and put it around the door handle and tightly bound her right wrist to the door. She felt the hard plastic tie cut into her skin, causing pain to radiate up her arm. There was no possibility of escaping now.

Roger had thought of everything, anticipating what she might do before she could even think of it herself. He knew what he was doing. She couldn’t jump out of the car to escape him.

Kate glanced into the backseat and saw little Jacob sleeping. At least she hoped he was sleeping. Was Roger so far gone that he would kill his own son? Who knew what he was capable of doing? He had killed his own baby when he murdered Rose. She listened carefully and watched Jacob’s chest while Roger went around the car and got in on the driver’s side. She breathed a sigh of relief when she saw Jacob’s small chest rising and falling with each breath. At least Roger hadn’t done another unthinkable act. How was he going to explain to his child who she was and what she was doing with them? Jacob was sure to ask questions. And where was Paulina right now? Kate put her free hand to her mouth in horror, at the realization that Paulina was most likely dead. She felt chills race all the way up her body at the thought that he had killed Paulina too. Oh God, she thought she was going to be sick. There was no way Paulina would let Roger take her child willingly.
