Perfect new start at life novella!

I really enjoyed this 1001 Dark Nights Novella which detailed a new start to life for two separate people that just happened to come out of the same MC. They didn’t know each other at the time they were involved in the Motorcycle Club but both of them got out of the life in their own way and ended up in the same place. Each has their own story and wants to keep it a secret.

Meadow grew up in the MC life as the daughter of an MC President. She lived a charmed life

Taken With You is a novella in the Fractured Connection series but could be read as a stand alone. I loved it and devoured it in one sitting. I have loved Beckham and am thrilled to finally have his story.

I have thoughts but I just finished a few hours ago so standby but I will say that fractured, no pun intended but maybe lol, is a very appropriate word to describe this book, in my opinion. But later ...

I’m not going into a lot of my thoughts on this story because, the story did not work for me at all and who needs all that negativity in their lives. It could very well be a case of it is me and not the story, but my biggest problem wasn’t about liking this or that, it was that I was utterly lost
Nadine Bookaholic
Beckham and Meadow have always had an attraction towards one another although they didn't let anyone know about it, they are also both hiding secret pasts. Pasts that come to light in this story and have you understanding why Meadow is the way she is. What threw me was Beckham's past, and I won't spoil anything about saying anymore about it.

If your emotions can survive the storm, it will lead your heart to a rainbow. Beckham and Meadow are destined for heartache, but wish for so much more. Trapped inside of secrets that are rapidly bleeding them dry, can they find happiness away from the shadows of the past? Taken with You seduces with heartache, inspires with hope and heals with redemption as it lures you into love. There's no temptation like a Carrie Ann Ryan novel. ...more

This was a quick Novella that lacked for nothing. Which I knew would be the case when it comes to anything Carrie Ann Ryan writes. She has the ability to pull me into a story and keep my attention from start to finish and Taken With You did exactly that.

This is a spin-off featuring to characters from the authors' other books in the series and two people I did not expect would get together... Meadow and Beckham. Meadow was at her friends' wedding when Beckham, the Bartender ask her to dance and

Meadow has a past she's not proud of, a past she has yet to reveal to her new friends. Then she meets a gorgeous bartender who's been adopted into her new friend's family circle, and has a connection with him. Unfortunately for her, Beckham not only knows about her past, but he has ties to it. Will Meadow ever forgive him when she finds out he knows her secrets and didn't tell her?

I've become a fan of the 1001 Dark Nights Collection, and I'm always glad to read a new addition. Taken With You is a story of redemption for Meadow and Beckham, both of whom escaped less than ideal situations. They each have something to hide and would like to keep these dark unpleasant thing

Although it hasn’t been easy Meadow managed to escape the only life she has ever known. She has created a new life for herself and been embraced by the Connolly family, but she doesn’t want anyone to know about her past or the woman she used to be. She never expected that one dance with the bartender at her friend’s wedding would change everything.

Cameron has a past of his own that he wants to ensure stays where it belongs. He is friends with the Connolly’s and works at their bar and has watched

I fell for Beckham and Meadow. They do not have it easy, but their hearts are pulling them closer. There is a lot of secrets. In a blink of an eye, I was devouring every word. Before I knew it, the story was over and I found I spent a few hours lost in their world. Meadow has a heart breaking past. A past she will never return and keeps it locked away. Little does she know Beckham has some secrets of his own. I was on the edge wondering what would happen when the skeletons come out of the closet ...more

Taken With You is a novella in the Fractured Connections series by Carrie Ann Ryan. It can be read as stand-alone and since my experience with the series is a little rocky, I would say read it as such.

My biggest issue with the book is that while I was reading it, I got the feeling that I was reading parts of the story and not something cohesive. We jumped from date one to dating for 4 months for example and that felt off. The book, in my opinion, needed to be full-length and not a novella. We g

A quick and good read. This novella revisits an already developed world as it is book four of the series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. I have not read the first three books and still followed the story and characters easily.

This are some secrets and mysterious backgrounds that end up connecting between Beckham and Meadow. They both have scars and bad memories of their past and want to move on from their previous lifestyles. The novella covers the development of their romance and their H
Marianela Aybar (Mari Loves Books Blog)
This is a short story and though I haven’t read any of the previous stories in this series, it’s easy to follow along. It helped me fall in love with those previous characters and the love of their family; one they chose, even if it’s not the one you were born with. Beckham and Meadow come from dark pasts and trying to move from them. I love how they realize that they’re not their pasts or mistakes and move forward together to forge a new future.

This was the first book that I have read in this series and I really enjoyed it. Quick read that will leave you wanting more of the Fractured Connections world. Loved Meadow and Beckham. They were so good together. I can’t wait to go and read the other books because I need more of this series.

I received an ARC of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

I really enjoyed Beckham and Meadow’s story. They both are so damaged and just want to be loved but feel that they don’t deserve it after what they have done in the past. It was sweet and readers will be thrilled with this story.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

This is the fourth book in the Fractured Connection series.  You can read it as a stand alone it won't interfere with the other stories in the series thus far. 

Harmony and Beckham finally get their due!  I was so excited to see what would happen with these two characters.  What their secrets were.  Why they held back.  Before this book we know virtually nothing about their backgrounds and what caused them to withdraw from opening up to those

Wowza! I am always amazed at how much story Ms. Ryan can pack into a novella. I have been waiting impatiently for Beckham and Meadow's story and boy oh boy did the author deliver. This story was excellent.

The connection between these two has been slowly building throughout some of the earlier stories. We know they both have secrets but things have been pretty hush hush until now as to what those secrets actually entail. I enjoyed watching them overcome their past and find love along the way.

Carrie Ann Ryan can take flawed characters and make them perfect for each other. Beckham and Meadow are both trying to live under the radar, escaping their individual pasts. When they finally come together, sparks fly. Working through their tortured pasts, they find the HEA!!

I really enjoyed this story! I was really happy to get both Beck and Meadow's story! They are part of the group in the Fractured Connections series and we see them throughout. While they become part of our main groups there is a lot we don't know about them and their pasts. It is obvious that there are large stories for them that have made them who they are but until this book, the reader really doesn't know much. I really enjoyed getting to know them and their backstories, while getting to see ...more

If you have read the Fractured Connections series you have been waiting to find out Meadow and Beckham's backgrounds. Taken with you is a really good read about over coming your past and making life better.

Meadow is a self professed loner, its easier to be by herself than with others. Luckily she has a job writing textbooks and she works at home. Growing up in a biker MC was rough, she was a commodity not a person, everything was for the good of the MC including her life. Her father was the pre
