Love Me (Take Me #2)
If there's one thing that Janica Ellis is absolutely certain of, it's that she and Luke Carson are totally wrong for each other. She's a wild, artistic and outspoken fashion designer. He's a type A, workaholic trauma surgeon (wh...more

Janica Ellis has been in love with her brother in law for years but just knows that they will never work out romantically, but that doesn’t mean she can’t get in a little fun in the meantime. Luke Carson lives to work. As a busy trauma surgeon he sometimes doesn’t see the light of day for weeks if not months; that is until one day he almost kills one of his patients in the OR. He is ordered to take a month off just to get some much needed rest. He can’t face going to an empty apartment, so he...more

Luke is a workaholic doctor. Very little time is left for personal things, like love. A crisis at work occurs and Luke is ordered to take a 4 week break at the hospital’s private cabin in Big Sur.
Janica is fun loving, adventurous, and quirky. She is a successful designer. When it comes to Luke, Janica has the patience of a saint and an overactive sex drive. At one...more
Love Me is the sequel of Take Me. After reading Love Me I find it is not necessary to read Take Me first but if you have then you will have a slightly better understanding of the main characters history. I did read Take Me but did not realize until Janica started talking about the Italian wedding festival, then I had one of those lesser "A...more
I have to say I'm a bit torn because there was so much good about the book but then some things that dragged it down.
I'll start with the bad news first.
This book dragged quite a bit in the middle and at the end. It had highs and lows like blips on a heart monitor machine. It starts strong, with Luke acting on a primal impulse to visit Janica in the middle of the night for a little lovin'. He's had a rough night in the ER that reminds him just how empty his life is. Janica is just not...more
I have to agree with the last reviewer - it's a dud. Luke and Janika's story is just terrible. The story is supposed to read like this: Luke and Janika have known each other since childhood and have been related for five years now since her sister and his brother got married. He - as a trauma surgeon, is burned out and told to take some time to recoup. She, out of concern for him, follows him to this lake house to help him through this tough time. This, however, is how it actually reads: Luke i...more
On the surface, Janica and Luke are definitely wrong for each other, but as we find out more about them, they're complicated, complex and compelling. Luke wants relief from the demands of his job and his personal demons. Janica embraces his ocean retreat to find her grounding. Luke is a bit prickly at the start - coming across as a domineering Alpha male- however, while he is a little dense figuring out...more
Throughout the story, the two cannot have enough of each other. Luke’s in...more
***FYI - this may be a bit spoilery***
What a wonderful story. I loved Take Me. This one just beautifully wraps it all up together in a perfect bow! I wanted to smack Luke upside the head so many times for his fear and stubborness. I also cringed many times with how vulnerable and open Janica made herself with him. Holy moly. Talk about putting yourself out there and wearing your heart on your sleeve. She held nothing back with him and gambled ever...more
I get totally annoyed with heroines who repeatedly make themselves so vulnerable and open without any appreciation from the hero. A good love story will have an interchange of...more
Luke is a doctor who puts everything he is into his work. Lately he's starting to feel burned out. After a particularly bad night in surgery, he doesn't want to be alone and heads to Janica's house, where he finds her entertaining the idea of a threesome with two guys she picked up at a club. He kicks t...more
Janica is... sexually adventurous. Just as she's deciding whether or not to follow through on the menage a trois she's set up for herself, Luke, her sister's brother-in-law shows up at her front door. In unearned-angst-romance fashion, the two have been in love with each other forever -- at least since her sister married his twin brother -- but have neither...more
Anyways, this book is about two completely different people who fell in love with each other. Yes, you can say here that opposites really do attract.
Janica Ellis is a headstrong, a party girl and fashion designer who has no problem s...more
Found it a little odd that, in the first few chapters, Janica can't believe she might be in love with Luke, and then the second time they make love she says she loves him, and doesn't try to back pedal. For someone suppposedly so "out-there", and one who was considering a menage-a-trois at the beginning of the book, she also seemed pretty traditional. I really didn't get a sense of her being very wild.
Luke is a great, ansty, hero, and I do...more
I loved the book so much. Luke is lost. Janica is lost. What are two lost souls to do?
Luke loves Janica but he is unable to even admit it to himself because she is wild and carefree the opposite of who he is. Janica loves Luke and has since they were kids but he always saw her as her b...more
