How do you survive the internship from hell?

Don't fall in love.

Ivy thought being a reporter-in-training at the Independent Gazette would be her dream summer job. Little did she know, interviewing Eric, a landscaper with a heart of gold, would derail her plans. It turns out Ivy's boss, Lauren, has been eyeing his chiseled physique for quite some time.

But at twenty-four, Eric already has a tragic past, one that he is still reeling from. Even though his ordeal turned him into some sort of local celebrity, it's been a while since he's shared his bed with anyone. When he comes to Ivy's rescue out of the blue, it's not long before the two of them start seeing each other behind Lauren's back. When they get caught, Ivy's journey toward a college degree is jeopardized and her relationship with Eric is severely put to the test.

Career versus love? In the end, a shocking turn of events provides Ivy with a revelation she never saw coming.

This is quick read packed with heartache, tragedy, and some pretty intense experiences. Ivy has it pretty rough from the get go, and let me tell you, she pay her dues. There was always something happening to her so it certainly kept my attention.

I wish there would have been a little more interaction between Ivy and Eric, with a little more detail on their encounters. I think this would have made the relationship and attraction just a little more realistic. Their instant attraction isn’t unheard of and it’s well written; however, with Eric’s past, I think a few more interactions together to build on their instant connection would have supported the story a little more.

Eric is a fascinating character, and his past is extremely tragic. You can’t help but fall for him and little bit more every time read his POV. Even his extreme reactions reveal more favorable things about him. He’s dedicated, sensitive, protective, and completely lovable.

If you’re looking for a quick read that has a few serious topics and events thrown in with a pretty intense love story, try Take Me Now, I think you’ll be very satisfied and looking forward to more.
