Given To You Tour Stop!!


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 seemed to have reached a safe haven of happiness when she moved 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 had in mind for Kate, Neil hired security to accompany his soon-to-be fiancée on a scavenger hunt of a lifetime. As Book Three continues their saga, 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.
                WOW.  That is the first word that comes to mind when I think about this book after finishing it.  This whole  series has been one that had grabbed my attention from the start and I just didn’t want to put the books down.  I think one thing I enjoyed about these books is how they are not the “norm” for books currently out there now.
                There is sex in these books, but the sex in them doesn’t have a huge role in the story in general.  I honestly think that if there was no sex in these books, they would be even better.  My only complaint when it comes to this series as a whole is how “wordy” the books were.  There were times where I found myself wanting to skim over some of the paragraphs just because they didn’t seem to actually need to be there.
                This is the final book in the adventure that Kate has been taken on since she moved out on her own.  We have followed along with her when she realized that Roger is a serial killer, and is willing to kill to be with her.  When she met Neil and started a relationship with him.  Through her father’s death and finding out what her mother did to her and her brother as children.  And lastly, when Roger kidnaps her and…..  Yup that’s right, that’s how the second book leaves us, but the third book starts up.
                It was really great reading this book because Roger had such a major role in this book.  You could see as he slowly was losing his grip on reality and that was really interesting to watch.  Kate’s character didn’t seem to really  change any during the course of the books.  Obviously, she was afraid, but besides that she didn’t grow any in my opinion.  Neil stayed the same as well, he was there for her when she needed him and that was about it.
                Overall though I do have to say that this series is a must read.  Especially since it’s so different than anything I have read recently, I think that people should give it a shot!
