Release Date: July 7, 2015
New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr turns up the heat in a smoking hot, emotionally compelling romance that takes you into the world of Manhattan’s elite.
Meet Jeremy McQueen, a sexy, intense, brooding entrepreneur who goes after what he wants, and Phoebe St. Claire, a socialite-turned-CEO who’s been drifting through life searching for something she thought she’d never find again—the right man to share her future.
Phoebe St. Claire has devoted herself to saving her family’s hotel empire—but her best efforts have not been good enough. With her whole world in turmoil, the tenacious go-getter turns to the once love of her life. Far from innocent, Jeremy McQueen was a guy from the wrong side of the tracks and her parents would never have approved. Their years apart have only made the sexy bad boy more irresistible than ever—and their reunion is explosive.
When she asks Jeremy to help her salvage her family business, he agrees immediately, with only one condition—he wants her in his bed.
But soon surprising circumstances leave Phoebe reeling. Was this fairy tale romance just too good to be true? Will Jeremy’s secrets pull them apart all over again?
NO CLIFFHANGER. STANDALONE ROMANCE.
Toxic by Kim Carr is the story of Jeremy and Phoebe, who fall in love at a young age and meet again years later. History doesn’t always stay in the past when it comes to love. I cried, laughed, and maybe even thought about screaming at my Kindle while reading this book.
I fell in love with these characters. The bond that they have is something that we crave as humans, and these friends are family. They take care of each other through thick and thin. Loving someone doesn’t always mean that it will be easy…it means that it will be worth it! You compromise, sacrifice and share all of yourself with the other person, including the bad and the ugly things.
Kim has excelled at hitting so many of the emotions that we see and feel when we’re in love. I loved this story and will be grabbing her next book as soon as it’s out!
