Review: Take Me Now (Take Me Now #1) by Faith Sullivan

Source: Received a copy from the author for an honest review.
Release Date: Already Released.
Purchase Links: Amazon


Description from Goodreads:
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 was a short, and very fast paced romance. I really enjoyed the characters. I loved how sweet and caring Eric was...he really was like a knight-in-shining-armour at times, and I really, REALLY liked him. I also loved Ivy! She was smart, and while she wasn't very confident in love or with men, she was very willing to trust others and I liked that she gave Eric a chance because they were so cute together....plus their chemistry was fantastic! ;D

Since I've just gushed about their chemistry, I'm sure it's no surprise that I thought the best part about Take Me Now was the romance between Ivy and Eric! I loved seeing them open up to each other, and the dual POVs really worked to showcase their budding romance. :)

The only downside that Take Me Now had for me was that it felt rushed at times, and that rushed quality made it seem as if the characters weren't acting like themselves at times. I really liked both Eric and Ivy in general, but when the story felt rushed it was almost as if they weren't the characters that I had come to know. Thankfully the rushed parts were brief, and I was still able to really enjoy the story. :)

Overall, I thought that Take Me Now was wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Ivy and Eric, and loved getting to see them find happiness in each other. I definitely can't wait to read Take Me Now's sequel, Meant for Me! :D I'd recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance who want a quick, but sweet story, especially if you enjoy smart female narrators and kind leading men who've faced tragedy, and are willing to try to find love again. :)
