Take Me With You
I always go in with a plan. A set of rules for myself. I don’t take unnecessary risks. That’s how I’ve been able to evade capture all these years.
But there’s something about this girl that is different than the others. When I finally meet her, the rules become a blur. And I break the most important one of all—I take her with me.
It’s just ...more
'Take Me with You' was dark, disturbing and all kinds off f@cked-up from the beginning until the end. Needless to say I enjoyed the hell out of it! While Nina G. Jones’s newest dark novel wasn’t the darkest book I’ve ever read, it was for sure one of the most thrilling, gripping and without a doubt, immoral dark story I’ve read in a long time. If you are looking for a shocking, intense, terrifying read, then look no further, because Nina delivered exactly that. If you’re a fan of dark romances, ...more
“Who are you?” I cry. “The Night,” he rasps.
This book was all sorts of fucked up. ALL SORTS OF FUCKED UP, I TELLS YA! I need to be committed, my head examined, my sanity questioned... because I liked it. Never has something so wrong felt so...actually no. It just felt wrong. So very wrong.
Nina G. Jones was not afraid to go there. To the deepest, darkest depths of depravity. She didn't just push comfort lines here, the woman ran over them with a damn mac ...more

Sam was hunter who found his thrill in invading a stranger's safe place. He was meticulous in his method which helped him blend in the ...more
I have to say, this book messed with my mind, because although I love a dark romance, I need to feel a connection with the hero, and I need for him to be redeemable. I had so many conflicting thoughts because I didn't want to connect with the hero, he was an evil, evil fucker, but eventually, I just had to give in and enjoy the story for what it was - pure, unadulterated, adult fiction.
"Fear is the glue that holds us together."
Sam is a sick and twisted man who stalks his prey in the ...more
Take Me with You has to be one of the most shocking and intense reads I’ve encountered, full stop. It’s a novel that pushes the boundaries between anti-hero and villain, abused and abuser and more importantly the concept of love, however sickly the notion is borne.
I’d consider myself a fan of dark ...more
I thought about this. I thought about this A LOT. This is without a doubt the most horrifying, fucked up shit I've ever read. I finished reading this a week ago, and I still don't know how I feel. It's chaos inside my mind. I have TOO many conflicted thoughts and my emotions are all over the place. Even after a week, this book is all I can think about.
This is not a love story with some ''bad boy''. I warn you. This tells about a fucking psychopath. This is about a monster. The man looks nice ...more

“You do,” I eke out, already feeling countless contrasting sensations. “Give me all of it,” I beg.
Take Me with You was so close to a five star read. A story so intricate and deranged, I found myself gasping for air after some scenes and not believing my own eyes after others.
“Maybe she wasn't like the others. Maybe she was something in between people like them and people like me.”
The story that ...more
Complexity of characters: 5/5
Triggers? Yes! (view spoiler)[Brutal anal rape, kidnapping, and dubious consent scenes. (hide spoiler)]
This story was brilliant, devastating, nausea-inducing, and exceptionally well written! It was a very disturbing, unsettling, and somber read featuring an insufferable male lead. I did not fall in love with this story or the characters and it's not a story I would re-read for entertainment purposes. ...more
The most anticipated book from Nina G. Jones. I was hooked since Debt because the darkness was so good to be true. Take Me with You came with trigger warning and you should be aware. (view spoiler)[Like a mixed between Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas and Love is Strange by Whitney Biance. (hide spoiler)]
Seriously. This is not a romance. This is not for the faint of heart. Where you are about to go, there is no light.
Never trust your neighborhood is the most appropriate ...more
I'd first experienced a darker-plot book by Nina G. Jones with Debt. That book is still on my all-time best list. So when I heard Nina was venturing back to the dark side again, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Take Me With You.
On a scale of 1-10 of anti-hero badness I'd put Sam a solid eight. This is not a book with simply darkish undertones- where we read about a "bad" anti-hero but deep down he's really a good person who's does what he does for a 'good' ...more
Vesper Rivers is a nursing student who always put others first in her life by taking care of her disabled brother and overlooked by her mother. While she had the perfect boyfriend, she never felt completely content and as if something was always missing. One night when all seems to be right in Vesper’s life, it irrevocably changes.
“Please, I’ll give you everything I have.” I bargain as a last ditch effort. “That’s what I’m taking.”
Sam is a predator with a scarred past and conflicts ...more

My mind has turn to mush. I had to collect my thought after reading Take me with you because I really had no idea how to write a proper review. I'm still not sure I'll succeed, maybe I'll just ramble because I don't know how to explain how this story is fucked up and how I still liked it nonetheless.
At the beginning of the book, Nina warns that ...more
WTF did I just read!?
Ms. Jones, thank you so much for messing me up so bad that I love Sam.. almost more than I hate him. And I don't think I am supposed to love him.
Nuh uh. Nada.
Going in to the book, you get a warning, that it may be too much for some readers, that there are trigger warnings (many Dark Romance books have them), but I don't think there are many that deserve them.
This book does.
It was dark.
And so damn angsty.
"It's when you are...more
"You don’t stare the devil in the eyes and come out without some of his sin. You can’t beat the devil without becoming like him."
I could say I've read this before, or something similar. But, that would be a lie. I've read so many dark books, it seemed I was jaded. However, this book left me searching for the answer, yet it left no stone unturned. I feel happy in all my twisted glee. This book was original in all its ...more
I waited for what felt like FOREVER for this book to release, and when it popped up a day early, I was like:
Because this book is AWESOME.
Nina G. Jones… you are the master mistress of dark, romantic (?) tales. Truly, truly gifted; not only in spinning the tales, but in your presentation of them, and with your voice. Debt is one of my all-time favorite dark reads, and now I have added this one, as well.
I don’t even know about myself right now. Like… literally, I ...more
This book consume my thoughts, hooked me up from the first page till the last. This is also the first time I feel a smidgen of ...more
Take Me With You was one of the darkest reads I've experrienced in a while. Not only dark but gripping. It was sick and disgusting, horryfying and chilling, and I couldn't look away if I wanted to. One thing's for sure - this book is not for those who can't handle their triggers.
If you're looking for some kind of light or goodness in this story, sorry to say this but you won't find it. It is really a door into dark and ugly aspects of human beings we really don't want to think about. Your ...more
There's no sorta about it. Sam is a villain. He isn't playing at being a bad guy. He's the thing in dark that we fear at night. The reader witnesses his crimes up close and personal. Despite this, it's impossible for me not to find him desirable. Throughout the story, the reader gets glimpses of Vesper and Sam's pasts and looks from inside their minds. I enjoyed putting all the pieces together. My feelings about what should happen and how I thought the story was ...more
Dark erotic romance novels are basically the new YA in that every bloody thing is the same. Kidnap a girl,
rape f**k her, make her fall in love with the rapist/ kidnapper anti hero.
When i started this book, i felt like i was reading an upside down version of Pretty Stolen Dolls & Pretty Lost Dolls . I swear Sam was exactly like Benny except in this book Nina G. Jones worked extra damn hard to make him seem human. This is what Vesper says about Sam at a point "what i see is a face i could
“There are no heroes in this world, only villains and victims.”
While this is not the darkest book I have read, it is certainly dark and will contain triggers for some. But seeing as I can read almost anything and I have read some dark shit this one didn’t seem to bother me as much as I expected, but there are some definite moments where Nina G Jones pushes you to your limit and she just keeps pressing. This book contains some fucked up shit, it will ...more
This one-of-a-kind book impressed the hell out of me! I read a lot of dark erotica so it's very rare for me to read something that makes me squirm. However, Nina Jones was able to create more than one disgusting, shudder-inducing scene! TAKE ME WITH YOU isn't good just because of it's shock value though. Yes, Jones proves capable of producing some really depraved, disturbing material yet she took it a step further by seamlessly weaving the dark parts into an intense, totally ...more
Nina G. Jones's is a favorite author of mine after reading Debt and Swelter. Take Me with You ranked right up there too. I love her brand of darkness she brings to the table. If Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas and Captive in the Dark by C.J. Roberts had a baby it would be called Take Me with You. Heed the warning there are many triggers in this book making it all the more darkly delicious.
" Even in my dreams he stalked me--a nightmare mixed with a fantasy as he fucked me at ...more
Ho man, this book.
Total mind f@ck.
Sam is not a good man. He's not the kind of hero that seems like a bad guy but underneath the surface he really is a good guy. He scares the shit out of me. He is a legit bad, evil man that attacks innocent people in the dark of the night.
It really made me want to re-evaluate the security of my house.
Vesper has caught his eye and he can't get her out of his mind.
Vesper feels someone watching her. And she has seen the man with the blue ...more
By night, she explores the hidden recesses of the human psyche in her writing.
