5 stars for Take Me With You!


All of my demons are coming to head.
I thought Ari could push them back.
I thought I could conquer my vices with her at my side.

I thought wrong.

Fear is my new constant.
I thought I could conceal it, contain it, control it.
I thought that now that I had Grant the worst was over.

I thought wrong.

But if we’re going to survive, wherever you go…take me with you.

Christy's 5 star review! 
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was so happy to revisit my favorite rockstar and (reformed) manwhore, Grant McDermott. And his woman, an amazing heroine who is strong and feisty, Aribel. I love this couple. I love how different they are, how many obstacles they have to overcome, but how they just work together. I love that they both love and accept each other for who they are.

There were different hurdles they had to get through in this book. Ari’s family. Grant’s label. Grant’s dad. But thats life. With the good comes the bad. But they have each other through it all.

The first half was a bit angsty, but it’s a K.A. Linde book. It just wouldn’t be right if there was no angst.  The angst that is there is real. It’s something that you would expect in a relationship of people their age in their situations. And I love that no matter what, the characters stayed true to themselves.

Grant may be a devoted boyfriend, but he’s still himself… and he’s not immune to the fact that he’s a musician. There are women around and easily available, he just knows he can’t act on it. And Ari is still that smart woman who doesn’t take crap. Especially Grant’s. But no matter what they go through, Ari is there for Grant. She is what grounds him. She is what keeps him together.

There are many things I love about this sequel- can I just say one thing… PHONE SEX. Okay. That is a highlight of the book for me ;) These two are just crazy hot together. And Grant is the perfect combination of sexy dirty talker and swoony man!

But in all seriousness, I adore these characters. I’ve loved watching their relationship grow and I appreciate the fact that the author stayed true to them and their story and added in the perfect amount of angst without any crazy and unnecessary drama. Take Me with You gets a full 5 stars from me!
