At the end of Give Me Something, I hated Nick. Hated him so bad that I wanted to serve his man parts up on a shish kabob. I wish I was exaggerating. When I found out that Nick was going to get his own book, I was a little taken aback because NO WAY was I going to love that jerk. NO WAY! I've never been more wrong. In fact, I'm eating my words as a type this because Nick was amazing in this book. His character was so intriguing, funny, crazy, and redeeming! The tin man does indeed have a heart. ;)
"There are two things I know inside, outside and upside down, sir. Music and women. There is not a doubt in my mind that I cannot only please Miss Sinclair, but you also. I just need a shot."
Ok, so maybe it took a little while for the tin man to find his heart, but it's there. I saw it. I promise!
The storyline follows Nick as he chases his career as a music producer. As you know from Give Me Something, Nick does what Nick does best. Con and charm the panties off ladies (at the same time). When he sets his mind to something, he chases it. He doesn't believe in luck; he believes in going after what he wants. In fact, he GETS what he wants because he'll lie, steal, and cheat to get there. Whatever it takes.
"Besides, think of all the cons I can run with a baby."
This go-round Nick wants to be a music producer. He sets his eye on pretty little up-and-coming Sadie Sinclair and is determined to use her to get where he wants. He doesn't expect to develop feelings for Sadie's stunning assistant, Gia, though. This poses quite the problem for Nick because he doesn't need to muddy up the water with Sadie. She could run his career into the toilet, and there wouldn't be a dang thing he could do about it. What do you when the person you love could be the end of your dream? Nick doesn't know. It's always been so simple for him because all he ever cared about was himself. He finds himself in quite the moral predicament because Gia changes everything.
"I didn't have time for women and I certainly didn't have time to care about people."
This book kept me on my toes because there were a ton of little twists and turns. I loved the humor. It was so quick, witty, and sarcastic (the perfect combination, really). It's been awhile since I picked up a book that I couldn't put down, but I found myself reading in every spar moment I had today. Nick won me over BIG TIME. If you're a fan of jerks, you'll eat up everything about Nick. Also, I think you'll love it because there was no magic transformation. Everything happened naturally, and Nick's character grew. I guess I liked it because his character didn't change to fit the storyline. He was just as human as the rest of us (even though he was evil in Give Me Something). In fact, he even found himself a little broken at times. I felt bad for him!!
"The one thing I wanted to give her -- my completely worthless heart -- she'd tossed aside."
This one made my favorites list, so I hope everyone reads it! Taking Something was easy to fall in love with and I can't recommend it highly enough!
P.S. Loved the epilogue. Not over the top. Just perfect.
So when we left Nick in Give Me Something, he was actually making amends and building family ties with Tucker. The only family he had ever known was Lila and she talked him into sticking around in Chicago even after she broke his heart by choosing his brother over him. But honestly I can say looking back now, that Lila and Nick truly were meant to be best friends. As you will see in this book, they can give each other crap as only best friends do.
Nick is still pursuing music down every avenue that he can; producer, DJ, you name it, and he would probably give it a go to make it big in the industry. Then a chance encounter at a club with music mogul, Hollace Westwood, and Nick has talked his way to Los Angeles to produce a record with the diva superstar, Sadie Sinclair. Once a con, always a con artist. At least his intentions this time are more about advancing his career and less about how much money he can score from an intended target.
Oh Sadie Sinclair, I could tell this one was trouble from the moment she threw her first bratty fit. She is a D-I-V-A in every sense. Your regular child star turned coming of age pop star. At first she is not at all happy that some nobody is producing her album. But as anyone that has met Nick knows, he can turn on the charm (and the con) like no other. He quickly makes his way into her studio, and next into her bed. Well, that was quick Nick. *coughs, manwhore*
He is a man on a mission. He is here to produce this album and become the next household name when it comes to music. He will trade his soul with the she-devil that is Sadie to make this happen. However, his plans just might be spoiled when he meets the likes of Gia Grayson, Sadie's assistant. She sasses him and calls him out just like Lila does. And she gets under his skin, and he can’t shake thinking about her no matter how much he tries to drown her out with Sadie lovin’. Gotta love the girls that EL brings to life. Strong, sassy and hell bent on putting these men in their place. WOOT, GIRL POWER!
There is SO much that happens in this book but you will have to give the book a read to find out. I will say that I definitely LOVED this book just as I have LOVED everything Elizabeth Lee has written. And with this being one of my most anticipated reads for 2014, I will say that it definitely did not disappoint. I am going to assume that if you are reading this review that you have already read book 1, Give Me Something, however, if you haven't definitely give it a try. You will definitely fall in love with the characters and the story in book 1. And for those of you that have already read book 1, what are you waiting for?!?! GO GET YA SOME NICK LOVIN’ in book 2. ;-)
