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 enjoyed this story. It was quite believable. I enjoy authors, like Bella Andre whose writing creates a screen before your mind's eye. I could just see Lilly walking that runway and Travis' shocked face!
It was a book that I could relate to and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a love story. Warning....it is highly erotic and if that's not for you then you'll not care for this one.
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.

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'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.
This is just a fantastic book and so refreshing! Finally a sexy size 16 woman getting the love of her life and getting through her insecurities she has had all her life! I always try to buy the book with more realistic looking people in it. Fantastic read!
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.
