An appetite for sensual pleasures must never be denied....
Lily Ellis has curves - soft, beautiful curves. The kind of voluptuous body she fears Travis Carson, the man she's always loved from afar, would never crave. But Lily is about to be proven wrong. Her adventure begins when the demure San Francisco interior decorator agrees to model a plus-size dress for her fashion designer sister. Watching this sensual beauty move down the runway, Travis can't believe it's the same Lily he's always known - and always rejected. In a whirlwind of electric attraction, Lily is soon moaning Travis's name in his bed, not just in her wild fantasies. But Lily is all too aware that she's nothing like his past lovers.
Determined to beat Travis at his own game by guarding her true feelings, Lily partners with him on a business deal that takes them all the way to Italy. In the seductive warmth of the Tuscan sun, Lily plays a game of desire with the hot-blooded Travis. Will she be burned by an all-consuming ecstasy or will Travis open his heart to the sexy, exciting, and lasting love she has to offer?

"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'm all about the romance. I like the romance to be understated and hot. I love to feel that the characters belong with each other whether it be m/f or m/m. I hope I can find more people who share my same passions so that I can share the reviews and suggestions.
One of definite top 5
Lily, I related to her in a special way.
Where Travis is declaring hs love to her and drops down on one knee.
Everything under the sun
Love it! I would love to find out what happens with Janice's and Luke.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
It had its moments-good & bad. At times I could really 'feel' Lily's hurt. However, overall the plot was a bit jerky and didn't flow well.
I have not, but understand her to be a good 'feel good', nice, chick-light romance writer.
I think she will do well in this new genre as she continues to write and becomes more comfortable with the edgier parts.
These two are fantastic and brought the story to life.
No. This one ran hot and cold, one is in love-the other isn't and vice versa. That can be fun but the plot was a bit loose.
For Example---SPOILER ALERT---a mob comes together in wedding celebration & 'forces' them into wedding clothes and neither realizes it is a real wedding?
Some hot sex scenes & strong language.
Love Romantic Erotica with a twist , thrill, suspense and a great story !
Ok, have to admit , I got this book because Lily was a plus size girl. And I can relate. I did enjoy the story , where it lead them to Italy, my favorite place in the world. She was very talented , but very insecure. Would have liked her to be a bit more out there , and confident in herself. I pictured her very beautiful, but frustrated me how she couldn't accept it. Especially carrying on and on. And Travis , they both frustrated me because of their denial. Then FINALLY Travis figured it out. OOHHHHH how them two totally aggravated me! But in the end ...it was a descent ending. The perfect amount of sexual tension. For me , I didnt care for the male/female narrator combo. They were both good , but didn't like the back and forth and the way you got both her thoughts and his thoughts on the same situation.
The way it was written and the descriptions used made it seem like i was listening to someone's fantasies being read aloud. Yes the sex was hot but as a whole it fell a little flat.
Fury of Fire
As a larger woman I can relate to Lilly on some levels but she irritated me more than gained any sympathy.
Avid reader for 45 years
I wanted to like this story about a full figured woman finding love. If the main character Lilly had liked herself she may have been more likable to me. I couldn't bear to hear a 30+ college educated & attractive woman whining and moaning that no one could love her because she was "fat". I stopped listening to the pity party after less than 2 hours.
Audible has been my life saver.
I was so excited to see that this book had a heroine that was full figured. Couldn't wait to start listening, only to be disappointed to have her have NO self esteem. I know that most full figured women can have lower self esteem, but this went way overboard. Main Story is good, but you'll have a few eye rolls with all of the low self esteem.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I usually enjoy this authors books but this one didn't do it for me at all. I understand the insecurities of a size 16 woman but the wish washy way she approached him was a big turn off to me. I just couldn't get into this book at all.
