It's time for Rick and Judy to find their HEA.
“W-what are you doing?”

He set her cup beside his and boxed her in, one hand resting on each side of her.

“I’m going to kiss you,” he said over her lips. “Taste you.”

Her breath caught somewhere between her lungs and her brain…the short circuit could bring her down. “I…I—“

“You want to taste me too.”

One of the best parts about having the opportunity to read and review books, is coming across a series or author that is new to me that I really enjoy. That was the case with Taken By Tuesday by author

Judy Gardner has been trying to ignore the chemistry that has been bubbling between her and Rick since they met. She has just graduated college and is afraid acting on that attraction will derail her career goals.

Rick refuses to give up on Judy, he’s been patient so far, and he can wait a little while longer. When she moves into her Movie star brother’s house it only increases their interaction and attraction. When she is attacked, he refuses to leave her side. He’s done playing!

Taken By Tuesday es el quinto libro de los siete que forman la serie Weekday Brides creada por la autora Catherine Bybee y narra la historia de Rick y Judy.
Este libro era el que mas esperaba de toda la saga, desde que lei las sinopsis de estas novelas hace años la de esta historia fue la que mas me llamo la atencion, ademas en el libro anterior la autora nos regala algunas escenas entre Judy y Rick que me dejaron con muchisimas ansias por leer este libro.

I am a huge fan who has loved every one of the books in the Weekday Brides series by Catherine Bybee and I have been eagerly awaiting Rick and Judy’s story, TAKEN BY TUESDAY. Just the hint of them together in Single by Saturday was enough to know they were going to be great together. Taken by Tuesday can be read as a stand-alone, but I highly recommend you treat yourself to the first four books in the series with an easy promise you will be glad you did.

I know every time I write a review on Catherine's books I gush on and on about what a great author she is. I promise I won't do that too much this time.. Not that she isn't a great author- oh she is.. But I've reviewed enough of her books by now that you definitely know how much I love her. It's a love that is deep and true.

Again, each and every time I read a book in her series, I declare that THIS is my favorite book in the series. Well... uhmm yeah.. I can't help that she keeps making them be
Ok this one is another one of my favorites in the series ... What can I do? Hot hulky guys that might have military backgrounds, and intensely obsessive and protective of their woman, Who really can say no to THAT? XD

- Loved the main couple and their chemistry since the previous book

- Loved their heavy flirting XD

- Loved how Micheal became more engaged with the family, and the scenes he was included were nice, showed brotherly actions, like him and Zach on Rick in the fundraiser, or when he came

Oh uau Catherine....estava em pulgas para chegar ao fim deste livro. Já disse que adoro está série? Melhor, a minha mãe anda literalmente a apressar-me para a terminar para que a possa ler de seguida.

I loved this! Judy was a great heroine, and Rick an excellent equal to her. I loved the tension, their built up history and how their chemistry, just as much as their circumstance, forced them together. This felt much darker than the other books in this series I have read, but the suspense, and not knowing what was coming up next, kept me on the edge of my seat. It felt like the perfect balance of romance and suspense. I fell into this story and laughed, cried and gasped. Each book in this serie ...more

At last Rick's story

Let's just say I waited long for this book. I was waiting before I knew I was. Judy and Rick are all fire from the first page. They had a year of acting like they did not like the other but there is only so long you can keep that up before the fire gets to much to say no to. And when they let into the passion nothing can stop it not even a crazy stroker or bars between them. Apart they are strong but together they are unstoppable.

Let's face it from the first book Rick popped

This is not my first Catherine Bybee read... I really enjoyed "Not Quite Enough" from her Not Quite series. Talented writer without a doubt... her writing is engaging and the characters and story in both books I've now read are well developed.
I agreed to review "Taken by Tuesday" even though I haven't read the previous books in the series... was told it could be read as a stand alone. After reading though, I think it would have been more enjoyable and engaging to have started with book one. I d

I am totally in love with Catherine Bybee's Workday Brides series. This isn't your average romance novel. These books deliver a good helping of romantic suspense. Taken By Tuesday tells Judy's story. If you've read Single By Saturday, you'll remember Judy. If you didn't, not to worry, these books can be read as stand alone novels.

I won an ARC in a FB contest - but with no promise of a review - this is my own effort.
"Taken by Tuesday" is another great read from "The Weekday Brides" series and picks up on the attraction between Judy and Rick which was hinted in the previous book, "Single by Saturday" (which remains my personal favorite of the series). Although this book can stand alone, it does mention nearly all (if not all) of the characters from the previous four books, and weighs a bit heavily on their stories, so I wo

I really enjoyed this book. there was suspense, action that had me on the edge of my seat, romance and love, a big happy family, and a sick twisted man.

Judy and her friend Meg had just graduated from college. Judy's brother was a movie star. He knew he wouldn't be living in his house for months. He offered to let Judy, and Meg move in.

Rick worked security for Judy's brother. Rick had been attracted to Judy for years. He was excited that she was moving to California.

Francamente melhor que o antecessor, gostei muito mais da história entre protagonistas talvez pelo facto de já se conhecerem anteriormente...aquela parte final foi muito arrepiante mas no fim tudo se resolveu e o amor entre Rick e Judy prevaleceu! Sobe mais alguns pontos na minha consideração autora!

Gostava de ter lido a história da irmã do Blake mas enfim...

Copy received via Netgalley in return for an honest review.

I have read all the other books in this series and I have to say this one was one of my favourites. It can be read as a standalone, as can all the others, but knowing all their back stories helps.

Mentally screaming at your kindle when the plot takes a turn you don't expect doesn't help when you are trying to work out a whodunit plot whilst hoping and.waiting for the main characters to hook up!

Judy and Rick have an undeniable chemistry that began in the previous book in this series. That book is not necessary to read prior to this one, but would be helpful for a new reader to understand these characters backgrounds better. Since the whole series has been enjoyable, I’d recommend just going back to the first book and working your way through to this one, I promise you’ll get through them in no time.

The story and the characters are well crafted, and the hint of mystery helps keep the bo

Another incredible book in this series! Judy and Rick have a chemistry that just explodes from the pages but Judy is determined to ignore it and not let her professional goals be derailed. When events prove Judy is in danger the only person who can make her feel safe is Rick. This is a fantastic story with twists, turns, and suspense that keeps you glued to the pages until the very end. I recommend this book and this entire series to everyone!

The last two thirds of this book had plenty of exciting action with main characters that were smart and honest but the romantic buildup at the beginning seemed like high school and I nearly gave up. I peaked ahead 100 pages and the story was quite different so I continued and glad I did. Recent graduate Judy moves to her brothers house and is attracted to one of his bodyguards, Rick.

Love this series! You definitely need to be reading them in order, really helps with the character building! Catherine brings new characters in, you love them before you realise they are getting their own book!

The romance was still flowing, we met Rick before when he helped Neil nail their ex colleagues when they went rogue.

He works with Neil in his Security firm, as a bodyguard for Michael when needed, he had known Judy from before she came to live in LA.

I haven’t read a Catherine Bybee book since Wife by Wednesday came out over three years ago. I have to admit, I was a little worried to read Taken by Tuesday since it's the fifth book in the series, but it's pretty much a standalone read. Events from previous books are mentioned, but for the most part, things are explained. If you've read the other books, then you will be happy to know that the previous characters make appearances.

In the fifth (and I think my new favorite) installment in the weekday bride series, the author places her focus on Judy and Rick, who we were introduced to in the fourth book, Single by Saturday.
Judy is finally a college graduate and along with her best friend Meg, ready to move to LA and intern for an architecture design firm. Rick is still working security for Judy's brother, actor Michael Wolfe, so it comes as no surprise that Rick would once again be in Judy's life. The attraction that had s

A primeira vez que tive contacto com esta autora foi através de email e foi desta forma que tive conhecimento que os seus livros iriam ser publicados em Portugal. Infelizmente só agora tive oportunidade de ler um dos seus trabalhos.

A autora apresenta a sua historia com uma linguagem simples, sem grandes rodeios, mas mantendo sempre o nível certo. Ao contrario de outras obras, neste livro não conseguimos esquecer a idade das personagens, sendo que a persona
