He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not...
New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr turns up the heat in a smoking hot, emotionally compelling new novel that takes you into the world of Manhattan’s elite.
In Toxic, Jeremy McQueen, a sexy, intense, sometimes brooding entrepreneur goes after what he wants—the woman he left behind years ago. Phoebe St. Claire, a put together, in control socialite-turned-CEO has been drifting through life searching for something she thought she'd never find again—the right man to share her future.
Our passion was boundless. Our lust untamed. And our desire endless. He was the only man who ever made me feel alive. Then, I betrayed him.
When he reappeared, I didn’t question it. Trust rarely survives the wrecking ball, so when he let me in back in—I didn’t hesitate.
Maybe I should have.
What began as a bid to save my family business, turned into a second chance at love. It felt so romantic. Working together, side by side, with the man I loved. My dream come true.
Nothing is as good as it seems.
We had our issues, but then again, every couple does. It wasn’t jealousy, or our too-hot sex life that I should have been worried about.
It was his darkside.
I never saw the end coming, until it slammed me in the face. The question is—did he?
Was revenge his plan all along?
Sometimes you have to wonder if your life is too good to be true.
Is it real or just an illusion?
Does the man lying beside you really love you like he says he does?
If the answer is yes, you’re meant to live happily ever after.
If the answer is no, you’re living my life, and nothing will ever be the same.
What you do about it—that’s up to you.
Me, I’m in too deep and there’s no getting out.
I’ll take whatever I can get for as long as I can because I know when it’s over…
I’ll never find another man like him.
Review...There are some things that are a given with this author. Sexy hot chemistry that make you fan yourself, complex plots that feature great characters and unexpected twists, and that page turning need to find the happy at the end. This book is no exception.
There is just no doubt that Phoebe and Jeremy are soulmates. Drawn to each other right out of college, both of them are consumed by the other but both make mistakes and the consequence is five years apart. When they finally reconnect, the chemistry is still there but the relationship takes a lot of work at they figure out what happened before and how it effects their now.
There are a lot of characters in this story. I'm pretty sure there's got to be a sequel because we meet so many secondary characters. Phoebe has a group of six friends, including her, that grew up together and each have complex situations. We learn a lot about each of them. I may have been lost in some of that at the beginning of the book. But once the story of Phoebe took off, I was totally on board.
I love Jeremy. He needs her love but he craves her believe in him. He makes so many mistakes but he learns things about himself along the way. I loved his brooding side, his charming side, his nervous side and his sexy side. I know I believed him. I never doubted he'd figure it out in the end.
Phoebe is a stubborn girl who needs to listen to her heart more than her head. She's jealous and doubts a lot but she, too, learns along the way. She learns to believe in herself, believe in Jeremy and believe in them together. I learned to love her.
I read this fast and really enjoyed it. If you love a smokin' HOT romance that shows a lot of character growth, then this one is your next read.
