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 Review: The first book Fallen for You was good, but book two was even better. Yep, gotta love when the next book is better than the last. 

So let's see...Kate have moved in her her boyfriend Neil, after finding out everything that was going on with her landlord. You know being stalked by a guy who is thought to be a suspect in more than one murder, isn't the best thing in the world. 

So Kate up and left and must get used to her new life. To make moving harder on her she can't see her friend and found out a family member has died. So now she has that on her mind along with hoping this new place can keep her safe from a crazed stalker. Let's hope Kate will be just fine. Though it shouldn't be hard, her boyfriend Neil is one amazing guy. He really does love and care for her, along with that he wants to protect her all the time. Kate is having a hard time with that. Does he really love her? Is she intruding in on his life? Is it right bringing all this drama to his home? 

What Kate needs to understand is that Neil really does care and nothing matters more to him than Kate. He will have to work hard to prove it all to her. He wants to explore their relationship and make it last as long as possible. Eventually Kate will see things differently and everything turns out to be true to her. Neil does care and so she will rely on that, especially if her ex landlord plans to make Kate his.
