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.

Ever!


review

Toxic is Kim Karr doing what she does best. This story will have you on the edge throughout. The way she writes Phoebe and Jeremy’s story is breathtaking, heart wrenching and tension filled. Two people who are “Toxic” for each other, yet so right for one another.

Jeremy McQueen will steal your heart, leave you breathless and wanting so much more. He is all of my favorite book boyfriends wrapped into one fine package.

Phoebe St. Claire is the type of heroine that I like. Strong, feisty, with just the right amount of femininity to make her loveable.

The tension is this book is palpable. You feel it in every inch of your body. The sex is off the charts between these two. No two characters have had me cheering them on like I was for them.  I couldn’t put the book down. I feared that the story would take a turn I wasn’t ready for. You feel their love and understand the torment that is their relationship. You will hate them both for the decisions they make and hold your breath in anticipation of a happy ending. This is by far my favorite Kim Karr book to date. I’m really hoping there is a spin off for some of the secondary characters. That would be awesome!
