Toxic by Kim Karr


The New York Times bestselling author of the Connections novels turns up the heat in a sexy new romance about money, power, danger, and passion…

Sometimes you have to wonder if your life is just 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.

I know I should walk away, but I can't.

I’ll take whatever I can get for as long as it lasts.

I know when it’s over…

I’ll never find another man like him. 

My Review

Jeremy and Phoebe have just that, a toxic relationship. 
From the start their relationship is based on lies, omissions and mistrust..... 
and as the story progresses, trust, jealousy and secrets threaten to derail them for good.

I was intrigued in the very beginning, Jeremy and Phoebe couldn't be more different. Her being the daughter of a very wealthy family and he the son of a working class single mother. 

Unfortunately for me it turned out to be a bit too chaotic and the back and forth ping ponging of their relationship gave me whiplash. 
I felt as if I was watching an episode of Ron and Sam from The Jersey Shore!

Ok, maybe that is a tad harsh of a comparison!

Their chemistry was explosive, from the moment they met. They couldn't take their hands off each other! 
All the time. 

This story has a lot of sex, hurt feelings, wrong impressions, strong bonds between friends and love.
There's also many characters, with their lives all intermingling. 
Again, for me, even the friends was a bit too much.

I know I'm in the minority here, so please don't let my opinion deter you from reading this book. I do love Kim Karr and have enjoyed her other stories. 
This one was just ok for me, but might be exactly what you're looking for.

Toxic relationship. Crazy lust. Second chances.
