Beholden to You
Carlie Sexton
Release Date: December 26, 2013

 ~ Synopsis ~
 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?

~ Review ~
** I received an ARC from the Author in exchange for an honest review **

I was really looking forward to seeing what was in store for Mac and Natalie having met them in the Killer Next Door Series. Let me just say they were captivating.  I absolutely devoured this book and fell for Mac in the process. Natalie and Mac share a similar past but Natalie has a lot on her plate.  Still reeling from the recent loss of her sister Natalie takes comfort in Mac and his ability to make her feel whole. 

So what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas unless you turn that moment of insanity into something real and meaningful.  Let the swooning begin because I honestly can't think of many men who would sacrifice their own pleasure to make a woman feel as wanted and loved as Mac did. 

Now every relationship has their ups and downs but they seemed to have a little bit more than the usual to contend with.  I was eagerly turning the pages to see where the story would lead.  Hoping all the while that Mac and Natalie would overcome all of the obstacles being thrown at them.

The story also allows us to play a alittle catch up with Neil and Kate and Mitch and Charlie.  We even get a little "Roger" thrown in for good measure. 

Now this is a spinoff from the Killer Next Door series and is a standalone.  But if you enjoy this book and want to see how they have gotten to this point, pick up the Killer Next Door series and get ready for a ride.
