Where it all began...

This short novella sets up the series while focusing on the catalyst, Travis, and his best friend Sydney's relationship. Things heated up a bit quickly before we really get to know either of the characters. However, that was later remedied but it's always tough for me to be emot ...more

For Sydney, the loss of her friend brings her together with her best friend from childhood Travis. They've been skirting around each other f ...more
I was slightly baffled that they both just walked away from what was basically a crime scene. I'm pretty sure if someone dies at a party the police want to interview everyone there to establish "stuff" but no these 2 just mosey on out like its normal!!! WTH?
H was adorable and I really felt for him when he had his love thrown back in his face the h loses tons of ...more

Kind of gushy-mushy toward the end with a lot of I love you’s – take over my whole soul -- I love you with all of myself. But it’s ok if that’s your mood. It’s a short novella (75 pages). It’s what I expect from Harlequin Presents.
Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 75 pages. Swearing language: strong, but not often used. Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: 3. Setting: 2004 and 2014 New York. Copyright: 2014. ...more
That is just one of the many stupid things repeated in this novella!
Who cares about either of these people? Doesn't anyone care that their best friend is dead? Don't the police want to talk to people who were at the party? How long must your arms and thigh bones be to be on your hands and knees giving a guy a blow job while he is standing up? Why didn't anyone drown in the shower? Argh!!!!
My biggest problem with the trilogy (but not really a trilogy is it, because there are 4 books to the whole story) is that it was SO anti-climatic by the end, I was almost sorry I spent the better part of a week invested in it. These books have an underlining theme ... to avenge the death of their friend. And each individual book, the hero takes a part in ...more
Travis and Sydney kind of grow up together, neither wanting to take that next step beyond friendship. All it took was one night, one bad night for their lives to change forever thus bring them together in one heated night to overcome the death of their friend. They thought by turning to each other and having sex they could deal with seeing her dead ...more
Take Me is an erotic romance short story. This was an odd short story in terms of pacing, tone and focus. The beginning is a brief glimpse at key characters in the Fifth Avenue trilogy and a v ...more

The sex is smoking hot. The naughty bits of this story are hotter than the average P ...more

I'm so glad I did! The writing was excellent, and I was surprised by how this short novella packed quite the punch! It was sweet, hot, and emotional.
Best friends to lovers isn't one of my favorite tropes because there's never enough tension for me. I was proven wrong with this one, and that makes me incredibly happy.
I'm definitely going to check out the rest o ...more
