Publisher's Summary

An appetite for sensual pleasures must never be denied....
Lily Ellis has curves - soft, beautiful curves. The kind of voluptuous body she fears Travis Carson, the man she's always loved from afar, would never crave. But Lily is about to be proven wrong. Her adventure begins when the demure San Francisco interior decorator agrees to model a plus-size dress for her fashion designer sister. Watching this sensual beauty move down the runway, Travis can't believe it's the same Lily he's always known - and always rejected. In a whirlwind of electric attraction, Lily is soon moaning Travis's name in his bed, not just in her wild fantasies. But Lily is all too aware that she's nothing like his past lovers.
Determined to beat Travis at his own game by guarding her true feelings, Lily partners with him on a business deal that takes them all the way to Italy. In the seductive warmth of the Tuscan sun, Lily plays a game of desire with the hot-blooded Travis. Will she be burned by an all-consuming ecstasy or will Travis open his heart to the sexy, exciting, and lasting love she has to offer?

Critic Reviews

"Emotionally charged and deliciously erotic. A must-read from cover to cover." (Jaid Black)
"Oh my! Bella Andre's Take Me is wonderfully sexy - a big, fun fantasy with an equally big heart. You'll cheer these characters on as they find each other...and themselves!" (Emma Holly)

Don't waste your money!

After reading the other reviews I had high expectations of Take Me, but I was really disappointed - the book was flat and lacked the spark that makes you want to keep listening despite the late hour and lack of sleep.

The narration by Grace Grant was superb as always, but Ian MacLaren sounded like he was bored and just wanted to finish up and go home.

I am a huge fan of Bella Andre but this book lacked the usual finesse that I have come to expect from her writing.

Blushingly says "WOW" ehem....

If you could sum up Take Me in three words, what would they be?

Steamy, funny, Romantic-as-hell!

What did you like best about this story?

Although the language was perhaps a bit strong for me I really, really did enjoy the story. For the real women out there I'm sure there's a chapter each one can relate to. I like the way you didn't have to wait to the end for the love affair to begin, and I like that after all the glitter and wonder of Italy (no spoilers) Bella takes you back to reality and continues to develop the story back home on US ground where the characters have to deal with the realities of everyday life. I ended up falling in-love with Travis, who wouldn't? I loved Lily from the the beginning although sometimes wanted to strangle her and say "SHUT UP WOMAN, DON'T SPOIL IT" but then realised most women do just as she did (no spoilers again). I think I'll try her "Sullivans" series as I enjoyed this one so much.

What about Grace Grant and Ian MacLaren ’s performance did you like?

I thought Grace Grant did a wonderful job and her voice is so versatile, she can handle any situation and make you live it. As for Ian MacLaren, why the heck has he only done one audiobook? I loved him. Contrary to what another reviewer said, I don't think he sounded bored at all. I think he made Travis sexy as hell and I applaud how comfortable he was reading those super steamy words. I blushed a few times as it was quite strong for me, and couldn't help but wonder whether he had to take a cold-shower after having read it, lol. I think he did a great job. Lovely voice and he really brought the character home for me.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oh yes, when Ian MacLaren is narrating Travis saying I LOVE YOU LILY for the first time. Ufff I just cried and felt out of breath and stared out the window for a bit, thinking, wondering...

Any additional comments?

Although very steamy it is definitely a lovely love story. The author created wonderful scenes and details and the narrators delivered it with much talent.

Head Candy...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I wouldn't say time well spent, more like a guilty pleasure.

If you’ve listened to books by Bella Andre before, how does this one compare?

This is my first Bella Andre novel and it was ok.

Which character – as performed by Grace Grant and Ian MacLaren – was your favourite?

Both GG and IM narrated really well and got the feelings and storyline of ALL characters over well, no grumbles here.

Was Take Me worth the listening time?

Again it was ok and probably will not re-listen too.

Any additional comments?

A fun easy listen, I especially enjoyed the shenanigans the 'plan' involved, the novel could of ended a lot sooner though and was feeling a little bored towards the end, but the prickly interplay and the blossoming of realisation was good to witness, but like I said dragged on too long...

Take me

An intense tale of unrequited love coming to fruition and the role body image plays in society.

Recommended for romance readers.
