Taking Something REVIEW



I know what you're thinking. “You were such a jerk, Nick!”  Believe me, I know I screwed up the best thing I had going in my life, but that was kind of my thing. I’d learned how to run cons before I could even form complete sentences, and I'd always been selfish.  But I changed.  Lila forgave me, my brother and I were getting along, and I was trying to make a name for myself in the music world.

At least that was what I was trying to do when I negotiated my way into the recording studio with pop superstar Sadie Sinclair. I thought it would be a piece of cake—charm my way into her heart and into her record label's good graces.

Just when I thought I had it all figured out, I got mixed up in a web of lies, manipulation, and deception. A web that had me questioning my motives and desires altogether.

Was the fame and fortune really worth the price? 

When I'm not writing or playing the part of wife and mother, you can find me dancing back-up for Beyonce, singing back-up for Miranda, or sunning myself on the beach with a drink in hand.  Here's the thing about being born and raised in a small town—you have a very vivid imagination!  Now, I channel it all to create stories where the girl always ends up with the right guy, first kisses are magical, and a happy ending is just that!


First off let me say that I didn't read the first book so I went into this store knowing NOTHING about the characters. So what I know is only from Taking Something. But god damn it I will be getting Give Me Something now because I need to know the back story with Lila and Nick.

Nick would do anything to help his music career. He's an upcoming producer looking for the right person to get him to the top. But what he doesn't realize is that you can't always fake it until you make it. Nick talks his way into being Sadie Sinclair's next producer. All he has to do is charm his way into her pants (which isn't hard), produce this album and he will have soaring success. But someone catches his attention. Someone who isn't Sadie Sinclair but her assistant, Gianna Grayson.

Trying to keep his mind on Sadie and his hopeful career Nick fights the urges he's never felt for someone. He wants to know more about Gia. He wants to be close to her.

Sadie is a back stabbing bitch who knows how to manipulate people into doing what she wants. She tries to threaten Nick with his career to stay away from Gia. But can he stay away from the one woman other than Lila that has ever made him feel anything for someone other than himself?

I loved this book!!! It was a fun and easy read. It flowed nicely and had me HATING Sadie Sinclair. But I also felt bad for her as well. Nick was hot. I want more Nick. But from the sounds of it he was an ass in the previous book. But he still is hot. I love his passion for Gia and music. Okay okay I just love Nick!

I can't wait to read more of Elizabeth Lee's books!

So FOUR POINT SEVEN FIVE stars for Taking Something!!!
