A nightmare coming to an end…
Peyton Harrison came to Claywater to bring her kidnapped son home. The last thing she expects is to run into Gabe Harrison, the man who abandoned her before her son was born. Her body might want to take up where they left off, but her heart remembers Gabe’s betrayal all too well—and everything she’d risk for momentary pleasure.
A past catching up to them…
Gabe always knew he’d share the love of his life with his twin brother, Sam, except he’d found that love far too young. He did the honorable thing and walked away, but now an adult Peyton is in his hometown and keeping secrets behind her world-weary eyes.
Sam is knee-deep in a drug investigation threatening the town he loves. Peyton’s arrival is a distraction he doesn’t need; still, he can’t deny her pull. He and Gabe have always stood together, but now the one woman they both want may be the one thing that divides them.
A future threatened…
When violence shatters their world, the past and present intertwine in ways none of them expected. Anticipating their enemy’s next move is the only way to keep their son safe, but what about their hearts?
Take Me by Ella Sheridan is the third book in her Southern Nights series. You don’t need to read them together, they stand alone from each other.
Peyton is following a trail, which leads her to her missing son, and to the man she gave her virginity to, Gabe Harrison. She plans to slowly build a life for herself, and in the process get her son back. Peyton wants to build a restaurant, and a new life in Claywater, but if Gabe is here, her plans may have to be altered.
Gabe and his brother are twins; they’ve always had a special bond, being able to sense each other’s emotions. They have also known that the woman they settle down with would be one they would share.
Peyton finds out that Gabe has a twin brother, one who he shares women with, and at first she is confused, as she has met and found Sam very attractive. Gabe finds out that their one night together, seven years ago, produced a son. And to say he isn’t happy is an understatement.
Sam is totally confused, seeing his brother going through a rough time, and he feels all these emotions for this woman. He begins to wonder if the feelings he has for Peyton are his or his brother’s.
A whole range of emotions are met in this book, with sadness to confusion, to lust and hate.
I wasn’t sure (two brothers and my ick factor went up), but it was a really good book. Two men ready to fight and die for you. The attraction between the three came across very strong. The interaction between Gabe and Peyton I felt was stronger than Peyton and Sam. I personally would have like a separate story for Sam. But saying that, I really enjoyed the book. It was a fast paced romance, with a few twists and plenty of tears.
