Publisher's Summary

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?

Critic Reviews

"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)

Not her best.

I love BA and have read/listened to every one of them and have delighted in all the characters! But this one, just ended. It had potential but just didn't hit the mark.

What would have made Take Me better?

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.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Fury of Fire

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

As a larger woman I can relate to Lilly on some levels but she irritated me more than gained any sympathy.

Poor poor pitiful me

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.

She needs some self esteem!

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.

Good Effort-Look 4 Improvement If She Continues

What did you like best about Take Me? What did you like least?

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.

If you’ve listened to books by Bella Andre before, how does this one compare?

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.

What does Grace Grant and Ian MacLaren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

These two are fantastic and brought the story to life.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

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?

Any additional comments?

Some hot sex scenes & strong language.

A really great book

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!

Not in love

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.
