All of my demons are coming to head.
I thought Ari could push them back.
I thought I could conquer my vices with her at my side.
I thought wrong.
Fear is my new constant.
I thought I could conceal it, contain it, control it.
I thought that now that I had Grant the worst was over.
I thought wrong.
But if we’re going to survive, wherever you go…take me with you.
** Take Me for Granted and Take Me With You 3-Star Review **
I waited to write this review since I joined the Take Me With You blog tour. I was really hoping that after reading both books, that I would have appreciated and liked Take Me For Granted a little more. Sadly, that didn't happen.
I am struggling with my rating of this book. I am disappointed in my disappointment in this series. Kyla has managed to write some great books in the past, but this series just isn't her.
Take Me For Granted introduced us to Grant and Aribel. The elements are there. Rock Star. Bad Boy. Strong-Willed Female. In all honestly, the start of the this series fell flat. The characters were not likable or relate-able. I didn't like either of them. Maybe it's the character development, maybe it's the characters themselves? I am not sure.
Take Me With You was no better. We got more of these characters. Neither character seem to grow. The story line itself isn't really that attention getting. Maybe it's that the rock star books are over told? Maybe this story itself isn't original enough? I really am not sure.
Now you are probably wondering if these books didn't do anything for me, why 3 stars? Well.... these books aren't bad books. They are average for their genre. The writing isn't bad. It's average. Many seem to love these books, many are in agreement with me. I think I expected much more from these books since the author has delivered so much more in her previous books. Basically, for me, these books are just average books. I am not screaming over the mountain tops that everyone must read. I am not saying that they aren't worth reading. I think these books are more subjective to being liked or disliked depending on what one generally likes.
