4 Smooches!

kis kis kis kis


On the heels of tragic loss, the stunning and innocent Natalie Mason, meets handsome business mogul Mac Carter. As Natalie attempts to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, circumstances beyond her control draw her and Mac into a situation she wants kept secret. The two are a matched set having both experienced immense loss in their lives. Uncertain of what she should do, she decides to give fate a chance, opening her heart to Mac, who just wants to love her.

But the past, who often times takes no prisoners, rears its ugly head in a double dose. Mac’s ex-girlfriend cannot accept that their love affair is over and takes drastic measures through deception and blackmail to ensure that Mac will be hers.

Natalie, on the other hand, has to face the one responsible for her sister’s death. As her journey begins to bring justice and closure, the past transports to her feet an unexpected surprise—a long lost love desiring to posses her as his once again.

Will Mac and Natalie’s newly blossoming love be able to endure what the past has delivered or will the victors of their hearts be the old flames who are staking their claim?


I actually just finished reviewing The Killer Next Door Series of Carlie Sexton’s, so I just dove right in.  This book is a spin off of The Killer Next Door books and it is Mac’s and Natalie’s story.  Let me tell you right now, I LOVED this story!  It had it all; drunken Las Vegas marriages, smokin hot sex, scheming asshole ex’s, and tons of angst.  This book moved along at a much quicker pace than Carlie’s previous books.  I really enjoyed that aspect.  I really felt like the writing was just more comfortable.

The sex was totally off the charts hot in this book and Mac was even hotter.  Seriously!  Mac Carter is every girls dream man.  Sexy, kind, romantic, patient, and alpha!  Did I say patient?  He was wayyy too hella patient , if you ask me.  Even Natalie was having wet dreams about him.  I waited the whole damn book ,practically, for a hot sex scene.  All the heavy petting, dry humping, and kissing had me a damn hot mess.  Whew and when they finally got it on….well….

It was good for me.  Was it good for you?

It was really, really good, I mean.

The only thing that I wished were different is that Carlie had written a point of view for Cassie.  I am just being picky because I think she writes an awesome sociopath and wackadoodle Cassie had the potential to be a bigger part of the story.  I liked this book even better than The Killer Next Door Series.  This book felt more put together and polished, I think.  I feel Carlie’s writing is only getting better and better.  I cannot wait to see what comes next.  4 out of 5 smooches, lady!
