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 eying 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.
I’m very conflicted about this book. I rarely DNF books. I usually try to stick it out, but I just couldn’t with this one.
On the one hand I really liked Eric & Ivy. They were both interesting characters. I thought they would make a good couple.
On the other hand there seemed to be vital parts of this story that were missing. I’m not a fan of insta-relationships and/or insta-love. I think there needs to be a build up to those elements.
As a reader I want to experience why a hero and heroine are attracted to one another. Why they like each other. Why they want to be in a relationship with each other. I want to watch the attraction grow into something more.
I feel like those aspects just weren’t there and sadly Take Me Now came up short for me.
