I have read most, if not all of K.A. Linde's previous books and liked them. So reading this book was on my list due to the authors previous work. After reading Off the Record, I had thought her writing greatly improved and was excited for this book. Unfortunately, I could not move past the first few chapters because the characters were so unlikable and the acceptance of Rape Culture that occurred in the second chapter. Vin, after being rejected decides to DRUG the female leads drink, and then the female lead gives this drink to Grant after he refuses to take no for an answer. At this point I am disgusted with the writing because the author was condoning this behavior that has very real and dangerous implications in life. Grant, while drugged, has sex with another woman - this could be considered rape since he could not form the requisite consent to the act - and nothing about this seems like a problem to the author. I can't support this. I returned the book immediately after. Again I did not finish the book, so maybe it gets better, but I can't see how.

I love K.A. Linde, don't get me wrong, but this book just didn't cut it for me. I don't understand the appeal of either of the characters... Grant is this super misogynist who sleeps around and treats women like crap, and then he spends 5 minutes with Aribel and he's in love and never wants to sleep around again. Give me a break! I understand that this is fiction, but it's so far out of reality it was laughable. Aribel is this closed off smart girl who dumbs herself down and gives her virginity to this guy who could have a whole wonderful slew of STDs (unprotected oral sex is involved, although condoms are mentioned when sex takes place) I found myself saying "oh come on!" Multiple times. Oh and the way that Grant talked? F this and f that? It's not appealing and it actually made me want to vomit.

I have read most of Linde's other books and have enjoyed them, so for this book I was expecting the same thing. However, what I was not expecting was the prevalence of the rape culture being displayed on the pages of this book. The book starts off with a band member trying to drug Aribel, so that he could sleep with her because she had turned him down and had no interest in him. That would be called date rape... It's just casually pushed under the rug and made light of by turning it around and drugging an un-expecting Grant. But it's not funny, because that actually happens to people. There are people who have been in Aribel's position but didn't realize someone had drugged their drink, and are taken advantage of. Again, that's called date rape. At one point in the book Aribel is literally telling Grant no, and his response is, "Well, I'll just have to f-ing show her then." And then he continues on to push her sexually. It is wrong to glorify a man taking advantage or pushing the envelope when a woman refuses. No means NO. It doesn't mean take advantage of me and do it anyways. Rape more often than not happens by people you know. AND rape can still occur with someone you're seeing. That's all that was going through my mind as I read that scene. Just makes me cringe.. Sorry for the rant! I don't ever comment on books... but I couldn't not address it.

I love it when the guy screws up but you have the women chasing after him over and over. Just give me a break. It's like we are to find it romantic that the guys misses up, drinks, says mean things and cheats but we stupid weak women with no self respect chase after these guys.

Yes and thank the women who was taken in you boyfriends women, really door mat.

Love how her friends warn her but then they go and screw the other members of the band.

Take Me for Granted started off on the wrong foot for me when a date rape attempt was treated like a blase thing. I'm of the opinion that if you're going to even mention a serious topic in a book, you better be prepared to develop it further. Otherwise, you end up coming off as an insensitive and lazy author.

When Grant's friend, Vin, spiked Aribel's drink, there are no consequences to it. The heroine saw it, she didn't say anything to her blow up doll friend Cheyenne at the time, and in the end, she used her spiked drink to get rid of the hero. Later, she tells her friend what Vin did, which only makes Cheyenne say that Vin was an a****. And that's about it. Cheyenne still wants to sleep with the guy.

Moving on, the book is about MW Grant who falls in love with Aribel only because she was rude to him and kept telling him no. Oh, and Aribel is a virgin. Shocker, right?

I couldn't stand the contrived plot and the unrealistic situations portrayed in this book. Plus, there aren't any likable support characters to make the reading more bearable. Cheyenne, the roommate/friend was your typical bubbly, air head that only came into the scene to pester Ari about her love life. I have no bloody clue why Ari put up with the girl or why they were even friends. The connection simply wasn't there.

I stopped at the 40% mark. This is NA at its worst.

MILD SPOILER WARNING (VERY MILD)

This book held a lot of angst.
The hero was the band guy/troubled past man whore and the heroine was the rich, smart, strange good girl virgin.
The hero felt a connection, the heroine treated him like crap....WOHLA! True Love!
So anyway, it's pretty typical in that there's always the question of "is he or isn't he going to actually keep it in his pants wants the shiny new heroine wears on him a bit". So far, so good - we'll see what happens in book 2 - yes it's more of just a happy for now kind of ending.Not because I'm going to read it, because I'm not, I'll just read a spoiler.
This is one of those where the author plays up a lot of the problems on mis-communication and the characters own issues and self doubt cause 85% of the issues. One of those where you just want to slap someone, or step on them. Basically - there aren't any real issues, it's just stupidity.
I will say that it was definitely hot and sexy AND that the hero was in fact very alpha and possessive.
