How do you survive the internship from hell?
Don't fall in love.
Ivy thought being a reporter-in-training at the Independent Gazette would be her dream summer job. Little did she know, interviewing Eric, a landscaper with a heart of gold, would derail her plans. It turns out Ivy's boss, Lauren, has been eying his chiseled physique for quite some time.
But at twenty-four, Eric already has a tragic past, one that he is still reeling from. Even though his ordeal turned him into some sort of local celebrity, it's been a while since he's shared his bed with anyone. When he comes to Ivy's rescue out of the blue, it's not long before the two of them start seeing each other behind Lauren's back. When they get caught, Ivy's journey toward a college degree is jeopardized and her relationship with Eric is severely put to the test.
Career versus love? In the end, a shocking turn of events provides Ivy with a revelation she never saw coming.
Take Me Now has left me very mixed. I love the book I am a sap for a great romance, but something's just really bugged me about this novel as well.
Pros: Eric is a hunk of a Hero. The romance is sweet and leaves you giddy. The characters are well developed in their roles. For example Lauren is a Beezy and Faith Sullivan made her into the ultimate beezy. There is NO liking her in this novel. Some authors try to make you sympathize with the villain. Nope Lauren is the ULTIMATE villain. I like Eric's backstory It makes for the perfect romance between Ivy and him.
Cons: The hero/heroine seemed to have NO backbones it literally pissed me off a few times. Like Seriously Ivy, stand the hell up for yourself don't let all these people push you around. That's definitely my view on Ivy is a pushover. I liked her I would of liked her to fight for herself more and standup to Lauren, Will, and Ryan. I didn't like that Lauren was able to string Eric as her puppet because of a secret. Eric/Ivy gave these three characters (Lauren, Will, And Ryan) way too much power.
Otherwise I loved this book. The romance is sweet. It happens fast, but sometimes it does happen that way. I cannot wait for book 2 to be out. I really want to see what choices Ivy makes and the development of their romance!
This is a very quick read. If it was summer I would def. make this my go to beach read.
