The depths of his soul are as black as his eyes.
He’s a thief and a murderer. Add kidnapping to the list now that he’s taken me, forced me away from my father’s house in the middle of the night. There’s no room for mercy in his dead heart. He’s driven by purpose, and I keep messing up his plans. So he hates me. He punishes me. He’s my captor, and there’s nothing I can do to change that.
But then he’s forced to make a decision—keep me or let someone else have me?
He’s still my captor, but also a kind of savior now too.
Somehow things have changed between us. I can see it in his eyes. He doesn’t like it, but he can’t stop the motion from going forward. He wants me in a different way, and it’s killing him to give in to his desires. I’m beginning to see that sometimes even a dead heart, even one belonging to Creed, can be revived.
As I began reading this book, I just knew that this was going to be one of those impossible romances. One where they just should never be together, but somehow find a way to get what they need when they need it. This is exactly the direction that Ms. Zook took us in Creed and Briston’s story.
I floved Creed! This tattooed bad boy who seemed dangerous turned out to have a softer side to him. His story was tragic and heartbreaking. I found myself rooting for everything to work out in his favor when his life was completely falling apart.
I thought Briston was going to be a typical spoiled rich girl. Boy was I completely wrong. She has guts, and spunk. She was not afraid to say why she was thinking and go after what she wanted.
Creed and Briston’s story was filled with suspense and action, romance and heartbreak. It kept me on the edge of my seat.
I am usually a sucker for a HEA, but I had a feeling going into this one that this may not happen. Although I did not necessarily get the ending I was hoping for, I was happily heartbroken over the ending I did get.
A definite 5 stars for Take Me.
