Love Me (Take Me 2)by Bella Andre-Adult Contemporary Romance
Kindle format purchase on Amazon
Summary:It's been five years since Lily and Travis fell in love in TAKE ME....now it's finally time for Janica and Luke to get their very own happy ending.
If there's one thing that Janica Ellis is absolutely certain of, it's that she and Luke Carson are totally wrong for each other. She's a wild, artistic and outspoken fashion designer. He's a type A, workaholic trauma surgeon (who just happens to be sizzling hot and her brother-in-law!). But Janica is about to be proven wrong when opposites attract...in the sexiest possible way.
After a life-changing night in the ER, Luke is desperate for escape - and relief from his personal demons. For five years he has fought his attraction to his sister-in-law, but when he's pushed too far, he can't fight it another second. He needs her. Desperately. He's spent his whole life doing the right thing. For one night, he's going to follow desire instead. Straight into Janica's arms.
Janica can't believe Luke is finally at her front door...and that he's kissing her like he's been waiting his whole life for her. But even as their sensual connection deepens with every touch of skin on skin - and the man she always thought was such a good boy turns out to be sinfully, toe-curlingly bad between the sheets - Janica soon realizes she wants more than Luke's body. She wants his heart too. But what will Luke do when one night of extreme passion turns into an all or nothing proposition?
I really love having an excuse to read sexy books. I've read a few of Bella's books in the Sullivan's Series (which is excellent), so when I saw this one for free on Amazon I snatched it up! I still need to read the first book Take Me, but I was able to follow along with this story without reading it. A few of my friends read this book and liked it as well. So, my friend Andrea came to town and we decided that Love Me would be the perfect book for us to swoon over together. We weren't disappointed. I truly wish I could have recorded our conversation while reading this book. We were sitting on the beach, reading lines from the book to each other. May sound strange to some of you, but it really is a lot of fun. Especially when I have a reading partner that appreciates the sexy times as much as I do.
On to the character breakdown. I really liked Janica. She's the type of chick who really knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it. I admire that in a gal. She's also a successful business woman. As I said before, I followed the story just fine without reading the first book, but reading the first book would have been beneficial in learning more about Janica's past. It sounds like she had a tough childhood and that helped to form who she is a person. Anyway, she's a likable character for sure.
Two hand Luke, as I like to call him, is a sexy surgeon. So, he must be good with his hands right? Luke has always been the good brother. The careful brother. The reliable brother. Well, he's on the verge of system overload and the only thing that can cure that is Janica. Luke finally turns to Janica for comfort after a rough night in the ER. Once Luke owns up to his feelings for her, their love for each other blooms. LOL Seriously though, I really loved their love story. It may appear that the "I love you" comes a bit quick from Janica, but keep in mind that they've known each other their whole loves. I was glad that it wasn't a big drawn out romance.
On that note, I'll talk about the sex. Are you wondering why I called Luke Two Hand Luke yet? Can you take a guess? Apparently this man is gifted. Janica had to double fist that bad boy. WOW Truly, that's impressive. Not only did Luke's size capture my attention, but he's a pretty sexy lover. He's tired of being careful, he wants to be a dominating lover. Janica is used to taking the lead in the bedroom, but for the first time, she wants to let Luke dominate her. This isn't BDSM type of stuff. Really more of an Alpha male sex take-over. OWN IT! ACCEPT IT! LOVE IT! So, yes, the sex was spicy and everything nicey.
If you're looking for a good love story with some really exciting sex, check this book out. Bella Andre is a master at romance and definitely knows how to write about sexy men.
