TURN ON A DIME – KADE’S TURN is a companion novel to book two of The Kathleen Turner Series: TURN TO ME and is not meant to be read as a standalone novel. It is strongly recommended to read TURN TO ME prior to KADE’S TURN.
It only takes a second, a fraction of a second, to forever change your life. That moment happened to me years ago. I did something you can’t take back, and I’d do it again. It’s a secret I’ll take to my grave—which is probably sooner rather than later—and that’s okay. I live with my choices.
Three things I’ve learned—bad things happen to good people, life isn’t fair, and the bad guy doesn’t get the girl. And I’m most definitely the bad guy.
I’ve always made my own decisions. I’ve never apologized for them, and I never will. Regret is an emotion I’ve never had to face.
Until now. Until her.
She once told me that what I did, killing people for a living, wasn’t good for my soul. I told her I was beyond saving. The truth is that I’m not worth saving. Not anymore.
But when I look in her eyes, I wish I was the man she deserves, the man she loves.
Bored, Kade glanced at his watch. He’d gotten there early. They’d since fixed the metal detector and now the line to get in the courthouse was slightly backed up. Shifting his weight, he leaned against the wall and looked casually back at the entrance, making mental notes of those in line.
Hello. What have we here?
Kade’s gaze swiveled back to the spot in line where a woman stood waiting. She had the most unusual shade of hair he’d ever seen. He couldn’t see her face yet, she was a little thing, but her hair stood out in the crowd. It was the color of the sunset, golden with a hint of rose.
Without even thinking about it, Kade moved from his position by the wall, drawing closer into the crowd just to get a better glimpse of her. He was close enough to hear the security guard when he spoke to her, his voice booming out.
“Kathleen! How’s it going on this fine day?” Hank asked her.
Kathleen. Kade liked that. But he still couldn’t see her face or hear her reply to Hank. Her voice was too soft to carry.
Someone stepped in front of Kade, temporarily obscuring his view, and he had to tamp down his irritation. Moving again, he finally caught a glimpse of her face as she turned away from the metal detector.
For a moment, he couldn’t breathe. She was beautiful, her face and smile radiating youth and innocence. Even from where Kade stood, he could see she had blue eyes. Of course she did. Her skin was the color of cream and was flawless, a hint of pink in her cheeks betraying the chill in the air outside. She looked like a fairytale princess who’d just stepped from the pages of a storybook.
Kade stopped in his tracks. He’d unconsciously taken several steps toward her. What was he going to do, ask her out? Yeah, he could see how that would go:
“Um, excuse me, you don’t know me, and if you did, you’d probably run screaming the opposite direction, but can I buy you coffee or dinner, then take you to my apartment and spend the next several days in bed with you?”
As a pick-up line, it wasn’t one of his better ones.
Kade watched as she walked away down the hallway and turn a corner out of sight. It didn’t matter. He could tell without even speaking to her that she wasn’t his type, his type usually being the kind that weren’t looking for more than a quick hookup where names were optional. A step above having to pay for it, but not by much.
Kathleen looked like the kind of girl who liked flowers and slow-dancing, who’d no doubt never had a hard day in her life, or any cause to ever, ever hold a gun. She was the kind of girl you fell in love with and brought home to mom.
That caused a long-buried pang to echo through Kade and he pushed the thought aside. Christ, what was he doing? Going all gooey-eyed and maudlin just because he saw a pretty girl? Obviously, he’d gone too long without killing someone.
But no. Blane would get pissed if he killed that little snot. Not that he couldn’t make it look like an accident, but Blane would know and then Kade would have that to deal with.
Kade took another sip of coffee, then tossed the rest in a nearby trash can. As he did, he heard screams and commotion coming from down the hallway where Kathleen had gone.
He followed the crowd, moving quickly through the press of people until he was able to see what the problem was.
The girl, Kathleen, was being held hostage by a man wearing a rumpled suit and desperate expression. He held a knife to her throat.
“Sometimes knights wear black.”
I’m going to be completely honest by saying I am not a huge fan of alternative POV books. They seem to rehash the same material as the original with nothing new to add to the story, normally. However, this book is NOT normal. The author gave so much new material and a wonderful and different insight into The Kathleen Turner Series.
This time we get to read from Kade’s POV, and let me tell you ladies, if you’re already a fan of his then you’re going to love him even more after reading this! The book begins when Blane has to put some distance between himself and Kathleen, and Kade is brought in as her bodyguard. It ends when Kade gives Kathleen the locket for Christmas.
I think this is the perfect companion piece to the series.I didn’t realize how head over heels Kade was for Kathleen at this point in the story. He was absolutely smitten with her. Gosh, I just really love this man! I wish other book boyfriends could be this swoony.
Another thing Tiffany Snow was able to accomplish with this book was shock the hell out of me! At about the 45% mark my jaw literally dropped, and I was immediately texting my book friends. When I think about it now I still can’t believe the author actually went there. I can’t wait to read the reactions from other readers.
Fans of The Kathleen Turner series should NOT pass on Turn on a Dime – Kade’s Turn. It added so much depth to the beloved series.
