Like faith's other works this story pulls you in and doesn't let go. She has a way with writing that you expect the unexpected, but are still surprised with the story and how much you fall into it. Its wonderful. I read this start to finish and loved every page of it. I read a ton of fantastic book, but when you ask me to recommend one, Faith's Take Me Now is one the pops to the front for her genre. It's a real page turner.
Eric and Ivy. I loved them both as characters and people and found them to be very relatable and real. I find this is always a treat with Faith's writing as well. Its Real. Full on could be real life feeling characters. If you have read her others works you know what I mean and if you haven't please go do so.
Eric. I loved him front the start. He may have a lot going on in his life, and a lot to work on, but he was a strong character. As his story unfolds you just fall for him more and more. With such loss in his past and present he has much to look forward to in the future. I hope at least :)
Ivy. I liked her as a character as well. She wasn't a favorite, but She was well-developed and I really enjoyed her. She as well as some stuff to get together in her life, but as with Eric I think she is going to get there :)
The story was a great read. It is only the first in the series so obviously we still have some to learn, but I really enjoyed the first book. Its worth the time to grab it and curl up on a rainy day. Or a not so rainy one, any day really is a good one for this book.
How do you survive the internship from hell?
Don't fall in love.
Ivy thought being a reporter-in-training at the Independent Gazette
would be her dream summer job. Little did she know, interviewing Eric, a landscaper with a heart of gold, would derail her plans. It turns out Ivy's boss, Lauren, has been eying his chiseled physique for quite some time.
But at twenty-four, Eric already has a tragic past, one that he is still reeling from. Even though his ordeal turned him into some sort of local celebrity, it's been a while since he's shared his bed with anyone. When he comes to Ivy's rescue out of the blue, it's not long before the two of them start seeing each other behind Lauren's back. When they get caught, Ivy's journey toward a college degree is jeopardized and her relationship with Eric is severely put to the test.
Career versus love? In the end, a shocking turn of events provides Ivy with a revelation she never saw coming.
