✱✱Book Review✱✱ Take Me by L. Powell

Take Me 
by Lindsey Powell 

A holiday romance……. An everlasting reminder…….

All Callie wanted to do was to forget.
All she wanted was to have some fun.
She just needed some time away.
She didn’t want her life to become more complicated.
She didn’t want to feel.
But then she hadn’t planned on falling for Caine Roberts.
Caine is handsome. 
Caine makes her skin tingle and her heart race.
Caine makes her forget. 
Caine makes their time together exciting.
But Caine also stirs emotions in Callie that she wasn’t prepared for. 
Returning to reality forces Callie back into her painful life.
It also means that she has decisions to make.
Will she let her head or her heart take the lead?
No matter what she decides, someone is going to get hurt.
And Callie is desperately hoping that she can protect herself.
Wrong or right?
Fight or flight?

Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

Take Me is an emotional story and it touches on some tough subjects. Our main characters, Callie and Caine, have some difficult hurdles to get through, but there's a pull between them that's nothing short of magnetic. Caine is a likable character if a bit of a loner as far as relationships are concerned. His circumstances certainly pull at the heartstrings. Callie, on the other hand, frustrated me. Her actions for much of the story are reactive rather than taking active steps to improve the situation she's in. Part of that can be chalked up to guilt, but feeling guilty can only take a person so far, and at times I was on the fence about whether or not Caine should put himself out there for her. Then, there is a situation with Jordan that didn't really make sense to me in relation to some of his other actions. It just felt like unnecessary angst with so many other things happening. That said, the chemistry between Callie and Caine is so good that they won me over, and I couldn't help but root for them as the story progressed. There's certainly no denying the attraction between them from the very beginning. All things considered, the story did hold my interest, and it is definitely worth the read.
