#Review: Taking it All by Maya Banks @Maya_Banks #Romance
***Disclosure: This book was borrowed from the public library.***
I am wondering who this book was supposed to be focusing on. There was as much dialogue on Kylie and Jensen and Chessy and Tate and this was supposed to be Chessy and Tate’s story. I am wondering if the author really did not get everything in Kylie and Jensen’s story as she wanted. Then we have Chessy. Every time I saw Chessy my mind processed this as cheesy. But then the book was exactly that cheesy. A very lame attempt at writing a romance book that had no romance.
For this reader this book was more about 2 friends hooking up. A friendship that had benefits. This book was not even close to some of the ‘mommy porn’ that is selling so great today. The glossed over sex scenes are worse. I could understand if this was a cozy mystery or Christian book but it is supposed to be a romance. For this reader it is a lame attempt at writing a book to sell to bored housewives so they can talk about it while sitting around drinking margaritas.
At one time I was a huge fan of Maya Banks. Today I am wondering if she has stumbled into a creative writers block and just throwing words into a document that will pass her publishers word count.
The bunnies and I do not recommend this book or even this series.
The bunnies and I give this book carrot.
In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. And for a married couple taking steps to renew their marriage, the consequences of one single moment of inattention may come at a price the husband never expects…
Chessy and Tate have been married for several years. In the beginning, their relationship was everything she wanted. Passionate. All-consuming. She offered her submission freely and Tate cherished her gift with a tenderness that made her feel safe. Content. Wanted. Loved beyond all measure. But as the years have gone by, Tate has become more immersed in making his business a success, and Chessy has taken a back seat to his business obligations. Growing unhappy with the status of their once blissful marriage, Chessy knows that something has to give, or they stand to lose it all.
Tate loves his wife. Has always loved her. Providing for her has always been his number-one priority. But lately she’s seemed unhappy, and he’s worried. Worried enough that he arranges for a night together that he hopes will reignite the fire that once burned like an inferno between them.
But a business call at the wrong time threatens everything. Chessy’s safety, his concentration, his wife’s faith in him as her husband—a man sworn to love and protect her above all else. Gutted with the realization that he’s going to lose her—has already lost her—he readies for the fight of his life. Whatever it takes, he’ll get her back, show her that nothing is more important than her love. And that if she’ll allow him to prove himself one more time, he’ll take it all. Everything. But he’ll give back far more: Himself. His undying love.
