Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

I love the smart heroine and the sexy hero.

The sex scenes were explicit -- more so than I have read before.

I devoured this book and have since read it several times.

Format: Paperback
Hot plus sized woman who's fragile from being ignored and dismissed by the man of her dreams. CHECK.

Sexy playboy about to get a reality check and his comeuppance. CHECK.

Tons of chemistry, a believable romance (!), and steamy sex. CHECK.

Sick of reading about perfect size zero fashionistas who live in NY and really have nothing more to worry about than which pair of $700 shoes to wear tonight? Me, too. This is not one of those books. I couldn't put it down, and I can't wait for next one.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Travis has always been the object of Lily's desire, but since they were ten, he has treated her at arm's length. His twin brother Luke, on the other hand, is still her best friend in the world. Luke promises to be there when she has to strut her plus size stuff on the runway for her sister's fashion show. When he is called to the ER for an emergency, he asks Travis to do something they have not done in some time - the twin switch.

Travis is not looking forward to having to spend time with Lily. But when he sets his eyes on her transformed self, his temperature is not the only thing rising. After a night of intense passion, they part, and Travis figures he will be back to his daily dose of teeny tiny arm candy. But when Luke gets Lily to admit the one night stand, he decides to get even with is twin by telling him that Lily had a one night stand with a stranger and said it was so-so. Travis being the lothario that he is wants another crack at her so that he can prove his virility. When he hires her to decorate a new property, they take off to Italy for a shopping binge, where Travis plans plenty of down time and the two engage in a torrid affair which is intense and erotically charged. But what happens when they bid arrivederci to Italy?

Andre has created something above and beyond what one expects from an erotic novel - it is also tender and humorous, with a cast of characters you cannot help but fall and cheer for, leaving the door open for a potential sequel for best pal Luke.

Format: Paperback
I have never read any books by this author before, but when I started it, I couldn't stop until I was finished.

Lily and Travis are very likeable characters, and I was rooting for them from the beginning. They had chemistry, friendship, and history going for them. This story was also very emotionally charged, and gave us all a chance to walk in someone else's shoes for a few hours. We were given an inside look into how thoughtless words and actions can impact a persons life long term. I for one am glad the author did not gloss over the hard stuff because the story wouldn't have been the same great quality if she did.

Spicy, hot, and very well written. I will happily add it to my collection.

I was so sorry that I bought this book and it's sequel. after the great reviews, I though that this book had to be great. What a waste of money (and this book is expensive). Save your money! The first half was okay, the sex scenes were hot but toward the end I started really hating the main theme of this book. Lily is fat, Lily has a confidence problem cause she's fat, nobody could love Lily cause she's fat and on and on and on. every chapter and verse her size is mentioned or implied. the book would have been much better if the author dropped the "fat" issue towards the end and just had her be Lily. As for the sequel, didn't really feel the chemistry. stay away from both books.

I was totally ready to love Take Me and so wanted it to be good. I love romances where the main character isn't a size 0. But there were a ton of major problems with the plot and characters that just sucked the life out of the story.

1. For one, it is insanely repetitive. The protagonist, Lily, is insecure about her weight and doubts that hero, Travis, could possibly find her attractive. This is normal enough and quite endearing at first. However, as the book progresses we get treated to the same EXACT scene over and over again: Lily is insecure about her weight at the fashion show, insecure about her weight after everyone praises her, insecure about her weight when she kisses Travis, insecure about her weight when she is traveling to Italy, insecure about her weight after seemingly every single Italian man is attracted to her, insecure about her weight after she has amazing, passionate sex with Travis, insecure about her weight after she MARRIES Travis etc. It doesn't stop. And after a while it stops being endearing and starts being (a) really boring and (b) INSANE.

2. The two main characters are seriously unlikeable. Travis is an inveterate womanizer who seems to have zero understanding of either ethics or psychology. I think he is supposed to come across as super-confident but that just translates into him treating people really poorly. He also appears to have zero understanding of what it is like to be insecure about your body which is hilarious. Has he never met a woman before? Could he not have predicted some of Lily's likely reactions?

I never connected with Lily. She seems sheltered, naive, dim and pathologically insecure.
