You genuinely like the characters in the novel and for that, I have to give Lynn a standing ovation because it’s easy to forget character personalities in stories sometimes, especially in Erotic Romances where the sex is often the most memorable thing of all. ~ Under the Covers
Gabriella Ross is one lucky lady. But she didn’t start out that way. She has just experienced a bride’s worst nightmare: her pansy-ass fiancé stands her up at her own wedding! The horror! The embarrassment!
But Gabby doesn’t allow that to keep her down. She was to pick herself up and rise from the ashes so to speak, so thinking it is apt, she wants to get a tattoo of a phoenix. She goes to Dermamania where her brother works as a tattoo artist and seeks out a consultation. Except nobody wants to touch her for fear that her brother will either fire them or beat them back into hell.
All this is true except for Ian, the newest artist. He likes to get dirty. And you see this over and over again through the course of the book. Hence the reason why Gabrielle is a lucky woman. She gets to shack up with a harley-riding, tattooed, pierced and sexy hero. What could go wrong?
When you read this book, you will soon find out that there are terrible things that can happen. It puts Ian and Gabriella in a difficult spot and forces them to make decisions they won’t know the outcomes for and thus, it puts a strain on their relationship.
That being said, while this isn’t my favourite of the series, I still think it’s worth checking out. Ian is not one to be missed. There were a few times when Gabby got on my nerves. She turned a little annoying, however, it was fleeting and didn’t frustrate me to the point of madness.
Yet Lynn’s writing really is terrific. Her voice matches so well and her heroes POV never once feel douche-y or contrived. You genuinely like the characters in the novel and for that, I have to give Lynn a standing ovation because it’s easy to forget character personalities in stories sometimes, especially in Erotic Romances where the sex is often the most memorable thing of all.
I want more! I really, really want more from these characters and this series. I am hoping that Lynn further explores this world because damn, she has a good thing on her hands! TAKE ME ON is a spicy read that heats up quick!

Did you like this review? If so, please tell us your thoughts in the comments!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
