Take Me with You
Take Me with You - Nina G. Jones Take Me with You - Nina G. Jones
There's no sorta about it. Sam is a villain. He isn't playing at being a bad guy. He's the thing in dark that we fear at night. The reader witnesses his crimes up close and personal. Despite this, it's impossible for me not to find him desirable. Throughout the story, the reader gets glimpses of Vesper and Sam's pasts and looks from inside their minds. I enjoyed putting all the pieces together. My feelings about what should happen and how I thought the story was going changed with each each scene. The emotions are complex. It's impossible to condone his actions, but the inclination to look over them is compelling. I understood her decisions, weaknesses and strengths. The struggle is real. I don't think there's ever been a more complicated love story. It's been a long time since I've read a dark romance that kept me this engaged. I recommend Take Me With You to those who truly enjoy dark. If you need trigger warnings, this most likely is not the book for you. I love the characters, the storyline and the writing.

"It’s when you are secure in your sleep, in the safety of your warm covers, when you think you are most alone. That’s when I come, when every last guard is down."
description

Vesper Rivers lives a good life. A bubbly likable girl with a charming smile. The perfect girl with the perfect boyfriend. Until the day she catches the eye of The NIGHT STALKER. A man that invades the lives of his prey, leaving carnage and destruction in his wake.

description

A feeling of being watched and a glimpse of ice blue eyes has Vesper on edge, but intrigue. Longing for something more. Something less perfect. When she finally comes face to face with those cold, empty eyes, nothing in her life will be the same again.

description
"If you leave, I’ll have to kill you, Vesp. I don’t want to do that. Don’t make me do it.” He’s killed me a thousand different ways. Stolen countless breaths and hopes. Slaughtered the girl who had plans to marry a nice doctor. Killed the dream of helping people for a living. Snuffed a piece of her soul by pulling her out of her little brother’s life. Pillaged her pride."

I honestly don't know where to begin with this review. I LOVED every twisted fucked up moment of it. And there were A LOT of twisted fucked up moments that's for sure.

Sam is a ANTI anti hero. I should HATE this guy. I should LOATHE him. The things he does (has done) to women (including the heroine) should make me SICK. And they DID, but you see somewhere along the way I started to like this guy. Then we would get more and more hints about his past. We'd get these fleeting moments of kindness and vulnerability and I started to LOVE this guy and root for him. I'm not really sure I want to look too closely at what that says about me...

description
"Who am I?” he asks in that voice, dirty and broken. “I am the person who has nothing to lose but you.” He pushes himself inside of me, and even though I am ready, it is so sudden and hard, I nearly cry as I gasp. “I am a man who has risked everything to have you.” He pulls out slowly and plunges into me again. “You are the only thing, Vesp.” He draws himself out and buries himself inside of me. “And you...are my obsession."
description

His and Vesper's relationship (a term I use loosely here) was all kinds of fifty shades of fucked up but I couldn't help myself. I was rooting for these two to get a HEA. I had NO clue how the author was going to get us there, but my fingers were crossed and she didn't disappoint.

This book isn't for the faint of heart that is for sure. I almost lost my lunch a couple times (yikes) It danced on the edge of crossing the line for me a few times, but this author can WRITE. I was sucked in from word GO and didn't stop until I reached the last page. That said I would be remiss if I didn't add that this would have been a 5 star read, but I did feel like it dragged a bit in the last 15% or so of the book.

So if you are like me and LOVE a good dark and twisted read with a fucked up hero and a heroine with a little "fucked up" in her as well, then this one should definitely be on your TBR shelf.

Take Me With You
Take Me With You - Sindra van Yssel Take Me With You - Sindra van Yssel The Romance Review

In a world post Fifty Shades of Gray, women are more open to explore a kinky lifestyle. Unfortunately for many women, the men in their lives are not down with this experimentation. For married women and those already in a relationship, this can be a problem.

For Alicia, she is starting a new relationship and she wants to be upfront about her sexual needs. Either he is into kink too or she's out of the budding relationship. Confused Craig follows Alicia's lead with trepidation and suppressed resistance.

This issue between a couple is all too familiar. In the past few years as a moderator in the BDSM group on Goodreads, I've seen women join the group with similar stories followed by depression. The women feel maybe something is wrong with them. Or they are angry and frustrated with their lover. Ms. van Yssel takes all these issues head on and shows why the other half may be resistant as well as how it can be overcome. The BDSM covered in this story is realistic from a physical and emotional front. The blend of beginner D/s and a bit of impact play from a baby dom is delightful.

The only item which seems to be harped upon quite a bit is topping from the bottom. This is a hot button for many in the lifestyle and it appears it is the same in this book.

Whilst a reader may think this story is about Alicia and her new found kink, for me, it is more about Craig learning to understand the difference between spanking and abuse. It is surprising how many men have issues with spanking a woman. Or flogging, caning or whipping a woman because it is too close to abuse in their minds. These men don't want to be the one doling out pain to women they love. Ms. Yssel does a great job of showing how a man feels about kink when it is new and intimidating to them. Helping a man overcome his concerns and fears whilst allowing a woman to enjoy a hard spanking without being disrespected is key.

This story represents the common beginner's anxiety so well and one can only hope more people taking their first steps towards a kinky life would mimic this journey. This book is highly recommended as a Gateway to BDSM book.

Take Me With You
Take Me with You - Catherine Ryan Hyde

 

By Catherine Ryan Hyde 

ISBN: 9781477820018

Publisher: Lake Union Publishing

Publication Date: June 10, 2014

Format:  e-book

My Ratiing:  5 Stars

 

Take Me With You was totally Amazing!! This is one of those rare books you will want to Pre-Order. 

From the first page, this heartwarming story, grabs you and pulls you in, with a strong hold until the ending, and thereafter in your thoughts. My only issue was having to stop and finish work – and this is the type of book, you want to savor every word, as it will transform your life, as you cry and laugh with characters you learn to love and care for. 

My favorite part was learning to “Just BE.” We all are guilty of rushing to arrive at our destination and do not enjoy the journey, and the experience of the present time. 

This engaging story begins with a guy named August (a former alcoholic) divorced, school teacher, still grieving his teenage son Philip who died in a car accident. Now he is taking his motorhome, alone for the summer to visit the national parks, hike, and scatter his son’s ashes for his final goodbye. 

However, fate steps in when he has problems with his RV and calls a towing company (man named Wes, also an alcoholic raising two small boys). Little does August know, while he is awaiting the repair of his RV, in order to get back on the road, this connection with this man and these two small boys, will change the course of his life forever, as well as the lives and destiny of these two small boys (Seth and Henry). 

An unexpected twist of fate lands August with two extra passengers for his journey, two half-orphans with nowhere else to go. This poignant novel reaches to the heart and soul with love, redemption, trust, transformation, and rediscovery, as the impact of this profound relationship will forever bond and shape the lives of two boys and a man, which nothing can break.

There are so many takeaways from this book, as would be ideal for book clubs or discussions. If you are a hiker, camper, or a nature lover you can appreciate this well researched book. If you are an alcoholic, a friend, parent, or family member involved, this book will give you much insight into the importance of support and mentors. 

I was blown away by this newfound author, Catherine Ryan Hyde, with her incredible attention to detail with places, moods, facial expressions, and rich character development. After I finished the book, discovered she actually hikes, kayaks, and visits national parks, as well as doing her research for Take Me With You, in her own 22’ motorhome. Wow, this made the book even more special, as her passion for nature is reflective throughout the book. (could see a sequel to followup with characters Seth and Henry, as there are too good to end).  

As an avid hiker and cycler, have traveled most of the places in the book and can definitely appreciate the beauty of mountain areas and waterfalls (even though I have never taken up rock climbing). I have even stayed at a few of the campground cabins centered on a bike trail, which is quite relaxing—ah, this book was so for me. (I wanted to adopt these boys) and take a road trip. 

I highly recommend Take Me With You, as an inspiring, compelling, and heartfelt story which will change your life. Catherine Ryan Hyde has been added to my favorite author list, and looking forward to reading more of her work! 

A special thank you to Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley for introducing me to such a talented author, and providing an ARC in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.
