Today I’m excited to share my thoughts on K.A. Linde’s Take Me For Granted. This is book #1 in her Take Me series. I loved Grant and Aribel, I NEED more, I WANT more and I can’t wait until I get it <3
Manwhore. Adrenaline junkie. Lead singer of ContraBand. What you see is what you get. I make no apologies for my actions, and by now no one expects any from me. I live my life the way I want and as long as it pushes the demons back, then I’m solid. I’ve never needed a chick for more than a good lay. Why would I need just one when I can have a different one every night?
Until she walks into my world.
Mouthy. Perfectionist. Princeton student. Chemistry major. Yes, that pretty much describes me. Oh, and virgin. But I’m only nineteen, and have more important things to concern myself with. What really matters is finishing my degree and getting a good job. I’ve worked hard for what I want, and do what’s expected of me. I don’t need anyone to get in my way.
Until he opens up my world.
But if I give you my world, whatever you do…don’t TAKE ME for granted.
I love Grant. I loved him before I finished page one, he had me at
“I don’t remember the number of women I fuc*ed. Yeah, that might sound cocky or maybe a bit disgusting even, but I’d never given two fu*ks. I wasn’t about to start now.”
I LOVE a cocky manwhore and I especially love one that owns manwhoring ways!
He was also a rocker (another win for me) and had some skeletons from his past he was still dealing with (broken man!).
Aribel made me laugh, a lot. For example, in one scene, her longtime boyfriend was breaking up with her she was wondering if she finished her homework. I mean, she kind of droned him out, more concerned with her chem homework. I loved that she spoke her mind and put Grant in his place right from the very beginning. She NEVER took his crap. Their first meeting had me dying and wanting to high five her for what she does to him. I felt a little bad for him but mainly, I laughed seeing our uptight Aribel smartly play him out. I enjoyed seeing these two COMPLETELY opposite people break down the walls the other erected around themselves and get under the others skin. Aribel wasn’t Grant’s usual type of girl, she made him work for her-her friendship and then more. I liked seeing their start as friends that naturally progressed to more.
In true K.A. style Take Me For Granted was full of witty, smart banter, angst and she gives us a story that leaves me dying for more.
