Joni Mitchell - California - lyrics
Then they have to deal with the fall out. I loved seeing Mike turn more vulnerable, question everything he ever believed, and show some emotion. He was always so sure of himself and Morgan ripped the floor right out from underneath him. She was determined to stand her ground and was not needy or clingy in any way.
And their chemistry was hot and steamy. They were two stubborn people thrust into a strange situation with crazy strong feelings and no clue what they really wanted and needed. And scared senseless. I've always wanted to leave. To move on. But with you It's different. I'm different. That's exactly why we should stay together for at least a couple of days. Both of us have avoided commitment for all of our lives but we both want to stay. To try. I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but maybe that means something.
Maybe we mean something, together. It was a short, funny, intense, sexy, and sweet read.

I really like this series and enjoy Diane's writing style and her characters. Even though they are novellas, you still get a good feel for these characters and you cannot help but like them. And that fact that the characters from the other books in the series make appearances just adds to the enjoyment. But these can really all be read as stand alones so do not think you have to start from the beginning to read this one.

I was on the fence because I wasn't thrilled with the heroine.. Well, Take Me is book four in that series and in my most humble opinion, Ms Alberts redeems herself. In Take Me, we get the story of brother Mike no not a priest..
Mike Worth wrote the book on how to NOT have a relationship. He even has a stop light theory. Seriously, it's hysterical. Sure he's a serious guy. Loves his sisters and is a great teacher.. A great coach, a great friend.
But he saw how commitment destroyed his mother.. Ok her commitment and so not his father's.. He saw how Brianna was devastated when her first husband died and how Kiersten almost lost it when she caught her fiance before Garret boinking his secretary. So he has grounds to be a bit leary but this man seriously takes it to an extreme..
Until, one night in a Vegas bar, his world is totally rocked. Morgan Collins has a plan.. As a professional dancer she knows her career life is short. And honestly, her dreams include dancing at this point in her life. Not husband, babies and carpools. Her mother had been a prima ballerina and gave it all up for love.. Morgan knew it was the right choice for mom, but Morgan wants to live the dream before giving it up. So when she is alone in a Vegas bar and overhears this gorgeous man's stoplight theory she is on board with it. Only one night a drunken debauchery is more than a one night stand..
Seriously, this is Vegas.. Waking up after a night of drunken fun and serious debauchery, when both are consenting adults should be no problem. Waking up with wedding rings.. I found this book interesting because while Mike was totally afraid of commitment, he got that there was something special about Morgan.
That they had listened to an inner need, while drunk, an maybe they should give it a chance. Now talking Morgan into it is a totally different story. Morgan wasn't bitter, wasn't angry and wasn't unreasonably gun shy, she just had her own plans.. So how could a hottie she met one night in a bar understand? I enjoyed this book.. It gave a nod to the fact that there is someone out there for everyone, you just have to be open to them when they show up. AND it showed that the right person believes in your dreams and doesn't hamper them.
Of course the shock and amazement that went through Morgan when she found out her hottie was a 7th grade history teacher was pretty funny. It was also fun to see Mike interact with his friends.. I liked that the men were teachers.. While, I haven't read the entire series I do think this one wrapped it all up nicely I suggest you take some time to enjoy it all.

Aug 18, Jillian Stein rated it really liked it Shelves: arc. Take Me is a fantastic addition and rivals the first book, Try Me, as my fave in the series. She lives in the spotlight and thrives on the stage. His views on love and relationships are exactly the same as hers. Surely one night between the sheets will be enough for both of them….. Never has been. He loves his job as a middle school history teacher and loves having new women to keep him occupied after hours. From start to finish, this novella was hot and filled with passion and feeling. To have the smart and sexy Mike meet his match was just priceless!
Morgan had him all tied up in knots from the moment they meet and is it so delicious! She really gave his game right back to him and it was so fun to watch how it played out.

We know Mike from the pervious books, and as much as I love him, I knew although he may be constantly knocking the whole ball and chain thing, he truly was missing it. Morgan is strong, talented and determined. She lives her life to make herself happy and even thought she is happy, you can tell that deep down she has a longing for more.
Morgan and Mike were paired beautifully and the push and pull between them jumped off the pages. They have fantastic chemistry. To see the entire family with spouses and kids was just wonderful! Such a treat! Thank you, Diane, for another fun, flirty, sexy and emotional read! Aug 26, Laylaw rated it really liked it Shelves: arc-review.
Its short, sweet, and has a smoking cover but wow- is it jam backed for such a small book. This story is set if Las Vegas were Mike Worth lives. Mike does not do relationships, he believes in the Green, Yellow, Red light system. When he is with a girl and its going well its all green lighted for Go.
When she starts to want more, he starts to go into yellow zone and starts to brake. If it starts to become more than that- immediate brakes and red light means he is out of there So when he meets Morgan in a bar during his friends bachelor party he was thinking of nothing but a quick green light event. Little does Mike know that Morgan plays the game better than him.
Morgan is career focused and only wants one time events and not relationships. She has a goal to be a successful dancer, so when these two meet up and Mike refers to her as a stripper sparks fly and Morgan tries to get the last word in only to have Mike chasing her down. After She gives into Mike because, well, lets admit- he's hot and she wants it as bad as he does, she ends up kicking him to the curb right after.. For once, Mike can't believe he has been out played. When his fellow teacher friend reminds him of a casino re-opening that he is to attend.
Then sure enough Mike see's that Morgan is one of the star dancers of the show. Mike can't help himself and goes after Morgan again and gets her to agree to another night with him. The next morning Mike and Morgan wake up both hung over and well I can't say because it would give it all away. But let's just say these two run warm, cold, and smoking hot throughout the book.
And the epilogue was wonderful.
