When they arrive at the resort, Conner can’t seem to get away from Tyler fast enough – making the weekend even more awkward isn’t what he has in mind. Coupled with the fact that his girlfriend ambushes them in the parking lot and Tyler is introducing his boyfriend to his family for the first time – this whole weekend is bound to be a hot mess.
Now this is a novella, which means that you have to jump right in and you have to be ready to understand that you are not going to get pages of backstory to make you feel the connection these two have as friends, you have to just trust what the author tells you is already there.
I personally love these sorts of books, I don’t always need to know every detail of a relationship to enjoy the read and although I typically am not a fan of “I’m with someone, but I want you” stories, I think the way the significant others were showcased, made me feel pretty okay with it all.
The hot and steamy didn’t happen until the very end, and I would honestly love to see this story told in all its glory from those college days to present day, but that’s not what I got. I was still very happy with this story the way it was told – but if Ella EVER wants to give us a longer version, I’m all over that.
This was a quick and mostly enjoyable read.
Ella has a way with words and while this story is not typical of Ella, the writing is. I LOVE her M/M books (and the few M/F books I've read as well).
I am NOT a fan of cheating. Tyler & Connor are each in a relationship when the story begins and while they don't get physical with each other until after they end the relationships, they DO kiss. While I HATED Tyler's boyfriend, Ryan, I really liked Connor's girlfriend, Miranda and hated to see her get hurt. The outcome was wonderful though. I hope she gets her HEA someday, she is a great character.

Standalone or series... standalone
Did it give me a hangover... slight
Would I recommend it... yes
Would I read it again... yes
To agree with another reviewer, this would have been so much better had it been full length. There is no character development whatsoever, and the whole plot revolved around Connor falling for Tyler in less than 24 hours. To disagree with another reviewer, there actually is a cliffhanger: the story ended right after they were intimate. We have no idea how soon they told either of their families, how they explained how things had changed so fast when they'd just arrived the day before with their respective significant others, and if/how things worked out between them.
Tyler was a bit of a diva, but his care for Connor was so open. He didn't hide how much he cared for him. His happiness meant the world to him. I loved watching their friendship progress to more. Ella did not disappoint in this story. Great for a happy, quick read!
Ella Frank has captured so much feeling in this novella, really loved how I was able to get a complete story with this one.
(Although, I'd be happy to see these two make a comeback down the road!)
Tyler and Connor's story was just what I needed, a total feel-good read!
Told from both POVs
No major editing issues
I loved the Take series by this author so I was excited to read another one from them even if it was only a novella but this one fell flat for me.
There wasn't much character development. Everything felt really rushed. Would have rather this been a full length novel. There is no background or buildup to Connors feelings changing. All the sudden he wants Tyler out of no where and has to have him.
Once he gets him the book is over. It literally only spans a few hours of one day.
Not my favorite.
