**This review may contain a spoiler or two**

Fallen For You is the first book in Carlie Sexton's The Killer Next Door trilogy. It is an adult thriller that will have you scrolling through until the very end, eager to know what will happen next.

In Fallen For You, Kate Simmons and her best friend Charlie decide to move in together and share an apartment so Kate can try and start to get her life back on track. Her past is a bit of a touchy subject, but she is ready to move forward.

The building manager, Roger Wilkens, seems like a nice enough man when he shows Kate and Charlie the apartment that's available. It also happens to be right next door to his apartment. Kate and Charlie love it and decide to take it. This makes Roger insanely happy, as he is immediately smitten with Kate and wants her bad.

At first it seems like things are going quite well. Roger is a bit overly friendly, but Kate is nice to him and chats when him whenever he pops up, which is all the time, it seems. She's also got her full-time job working at Nordstrom's and going to college to earn a degree.

When classes begin, Kate discovers a very handsome man named Mark, who happens to have every single class with her. However, he always seems to have a flock of women following him around, desperate to be with him. She's a little unsure if she'd even have a chance to be with him, or if she'd even want to be with him. But she can't deny she's attracted to him.

Enter Neil Statton. Neil is supposed to be Kate's alumni guide around campus, but he never shows, which annoys her to no end. She ends up meeting one of Neil's friends, who proceeds to text Neil and show him what he missed out on. Neil is a very driven lawyer who is accustomed to getting exactly what he wants. So he tries to apologize to Kate. She accepts, but refuses to let him do anything else. This frustrates Neil, and, liking a challenge, continues to pursue her.

Kate slowly starts to lower her defenses that have been in place ever since she became single. And in doing so, discovers that Neil isn't such a bad guy after all.

But Kate's life is about to take a very bad turn. What she thought was the start of something wonderful begins to turn into a hellish nightmare. Will she and Charlie be able to survive? My lips are sealed. ;)

I have to say, Fallen For You was a bit of a slow read at first. Took me a bit to get into, but once it got going, I was hooked and couldn't wait to find out more.

Charlie seems like a good friend to Kate, and her boyfriend Mitch is a pretty decent guy. Roger is a little...I guess he reminds me of Ted Bundy in a way. That seems like a good comparison. Mark seemed like he was just a bit of a filler character, and I honestly didn't like Neil at first. I still sort of have issues with him, but only because I think he's a bit too pushy for my tastes. I also thought Kate was perhaps rushing things a little, but at the same time, I understand why she did so. I can sort of relate to Kate in that way.

Overall, Fallen For You isn't a bad read. If you're into thrillers that will keep you on edge, I'd definitely recommend giving this book a whirl. I'm very much looking forward to finishing Taken By You, then starting in on Given To You. Look out for those reviews soon!
