From the Author

He was the only man who ever made me feel alive. Then, I betrayed him. When he reappeared, I didn't question it. Trust rarely survives the wrecking ball, so when he let me in back in--I didn't hesitate. What began as a bid to save my family business turned into a second chance at love. It felt so romantic. Working together, side by side, with the man I loved. My dream come true.
I should have known nothing can be as good as it seems.
We had our issues, but it wasn't jealousy, or our too-hot sex life that I should have been worried about.
It was his dark side.
I never saw the end coming, until it slammed me in the face. The question is--did he? 
Was revenge his plan all along?

Let me tell you, this book will take you on so many highs & lows that you might feel seasick at times. Jeremy & Phoebe meet in the summer, in the Hamptons, on her 21st birthday. They are both so young, with issues and insecurities. But also with a passion that neither had ever felt before. She was, "drawn to him like a bee to honey." Their chemistry was off the charts, but it wasn't enough. Secrets and suspicions tore them apart, but they never forgot each other. In the meantime, they are each in their separate worlds, living with their regrets and memories. And then he came back, and when he looked at her with those piercing blue eyes, she was buzzing again, drawn to him. He was there for his business, he hadn't planned to connect with her again, but there she was, and it's too late now. He can't unsee her, he can't unfeel all those emotions that resurfaced, and he can't fight his compulsion to protect her. Can they ever got over the past? It's true that you, "can't change what already happened", but surely you can learn from it, right? There are so many obstacles in their path. So many mistakes they keep repeating over and over. How do you trust someone who your heart craves but your mind fears? How do you fight the cravings, even when you know that they aren't good for you, knowing the relationship is toxic? And it doesn't help when you are fighting for survival. Fighting to protect your family legacy. Fighting to hold on to what you have when others are trying to take it from you. Fighting the lust that consumes you. Fighting for truth. Fighting for love. Well, let me tell you, being inside Phoebe's head is exhausting. All that fighting...sigh. But let me tell you, the make-up sex might be worth it. And did I mention the office sex? And then there's the phone get the idea, right? Yup, it's H-O-T!

Toxic is steamy, angsty, and sweet, all rolled into one. Ladies, guard your heart because Jeremy McQueen will own you! This story is a second chance love story and I loved the past/present chapters. The back story was extremely important and made you feel exactly what the characters felt. I adored both characters and Pheobe’s side shows you money can’t buy you happiness. This is not another spoiled rich girl story. It is so much more! The chemistry between Jeremy and Phoebe was off the charts but they have so much to overcome. I loved this angsty, feely, roller coaster ride!

What an incredibly inTOXICating read…a spellbinding, passionate, and erotic romance that will keep your mind in overdrive. I’ve become addicted to Kim Karr’s writing! TOXIC will keep you guessing and picking up on clues from the very beginning. What IS the truth? How will it END? When the ending draws near, and the truth rears its ugly head, your jaw will drop! Get ready for quite an experience with TOXIC.

Toxic was such a well written story, leaving us on the edge of our seats, yearning for more! It’s angst-filled, emotional, and incredibly sexy. Great, GREAT colorful characters, superb twists and turns, and an all around intensity that leaves me gasping for air. Kim Karr does romance right, giving her readers exactly what they expect from such an incredibly talented author.

TOXIC is a tale of two people coming from completely different worlds. They find companionship in one another. Like turns to lust. Lust turns to an incredible passion, and that passion turns into a love neither of them can deny. One night it just all falls apart and they are driven away from one another, only to be reunited years later. They are different people, but their world just got a lot smaller, and the passion they shared long ago, burns brighter than ever.

A reunion turns into a reunion of the body, and it’s too bad that Phoebe St. Claire can’t remember a lick of it. Their past of hurt, betrayal, and lies lingers in the background and the trust will have to be rebuilt. There are some lies that you just can’t move past. Can someone survive losing the love of their life twice in one lifetime?

Phoebe and Jeremy’s love is the type of love that I will ALWAYS stand up and root for!

If you haven’t immersed yourself in to Kim Karr’s world, NOW is your chance.

Have you ever wished for a second chance at love lost? If you get this second chance, can you ever truly let go of the doubt and hurt of the past? Toxic is the story of Jeremy and Phoebe. These two fell in love one summer in their youth but Phoebe was not who she appeared to be. Escaping from her family’s legacy, Phoebe believes that she has found the happiness that she so desperately wants with Jeremy, but soon realizes that maybe they just weren’t meant to be.

Jeremy was a young guy with a chip on his shoulder. Always feeling that he was looked down upon, he is bound and determined to make his way without becoming like the rich, country club snobs that he has come to loathe. That all changes when he meets Phoebe and when certain things come to light, he realizes that she may not be who she claims to be.

When these two reunite, can they let go of old ghost and finally give love a chance or will lies and self doubt finally destroy them for good.
Toxic is by far my favorite Kim Karr book and I loved the characters of Phoebe and Jeremy. I honestly just expected a story about two lovers reconnecting and finally finding their happily ever after, but this book was so much more. It was intriguing, suspenseful and kept me enthralled from the beginning until the last page. I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next.
