Opposites don’t merely attract. . .they combust.
Take Me Down, an all-new, sexy contemporary standalone from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips, is available now!
Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.
Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.
Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys … But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.
Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel … everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.
Take Me Down is an opposites attract romance. If you are looking for an easy and quick read with a lot of banter, this book is for you. The story revolves around two people who are not sure what they want, where they want to be and what they want to do with their lives. Parker our hero, was a little interesting for me. At times I thought he was very sweet yet dominant (the perfect combination in my opinion) but at other times I felt that he was just a complete a**hole at the same time. Things that he said and did put me off. I’m not sure if that’s because of what he went through in his early life of not but it agitated me. I do think his sweetness and outlook on things made me like him more than I originally thought I would. Emily our heroine, was supposed to come off as strong headed and Feisty, But I just found her extremely bitchy. I really could not connect with her by any means. Her overall story was touching and I could understand her predicament when Parker shows up into her life. She didn’t want to be put into another situation where she could get seriously hurt again. I just feel that I couldn’t connect with Emily. I find it hard for me to like a book when I can’t connect with the heroine, for me it just makes reading the story difficult. You could tell that both Parker and Emily definitely knew how to get on each other’s nerves. Their bantering and bickering with each other was fun and it was great watching them get closer with each other as the story progressed. Overall I really enjoyed the description of everything. I felt like I was actually in Colorado with the characters as watching the story unfold.
Overall I liked the story and give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️ ½ stars.
