A touching, story about two people who fight against seemingly overbearing odds to be together. Sweet, poignant, with an unforgettable, haunting ending.

I'm a new fan of Faith Sullivan and have now read all of her work. I love finding new authors and then diving into every novel they've written. Faith's books embody everything I like about the new adult genre: great chemistry, a permanence to the love stories (since the main characters are older it makes it easier to imagine them staying together if not forever, for a long time), and good contemporary fiction plots.Was this review helpful?

I adore Faith's Heartbeat series (Heartbeat, Come What May, and the soon-to-be-released I am Yours). I started Take Me Now expecting a great love story and emotional writing, with lots of chemistry. And I wasn't disappointed: Take Me Now was a good read. It wasn't as intense as Heartbeat was for me but I enjoyed it a lot.
Take Me Now was a little darker than Faith's other books, which was a nice change of pace. There was a definite villain in this story, and that aspect of the book was well-developed. I liked that there was a lot going on in the plot: it made the book more substantial.
It took me a little while to get into the story, but once I did I really enjoyed the book. I liked Ivy and Eric was appropriately swoon-worthy. I wish Take Me Now were a little longer, with more development to the relationship between Ivy and Eric. Their relationship was bordering on insta-love, something I'm not a big fan of. It just doesn't feel authentic to me.
But, now that the world-building is complete, I think book two, Meant for Me, will be even better. I love that I can escape into the world Faith creates with her words. That is my favorite thing about reading and Faith's books are great escapism fiction. I look forward to reading more of the Take Me Now series, and will continue to read everything Faith Sullivan writes!

The book starts out with a car accident and ends with a car accident...weird hey?? No interesting as a matter of fact. Katie is an 18 year old girl who with her grandmother are in an accident. She is alright but her grandmother goes to hospital for minor injuries. Katie ends up riding in the front of the ambulance with Adam, the medic who arrived on the scene of the accident.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Katie has a real jerk of a father, abusive verbally so Katie is only happy when she is with her loving grandmother. She is very insecure and has few friends and no male friends to speak of.
Adam has been burned by his ex fiance so he is disillusioned with love, but when he meets Katie he is instantly attracted and wants to know her more, so he tries to figure out a way where he can meet this young lady again. Katie also feels the attraction but thinks that such a nice and handsome young man will not care about her.
The story that follows is about finding new love, experiencing loss and dealing with obstacles thrown into Katie and Adam's lives. The ending blew me away, did not see it coming. That did not detract from the story though and there is a sequel about Adam that goes more into the story. I loved the author's writing style, it held my interest which made the book a fast paced read. I have to say it drew tears a few times. The book is a very emotional one dealing with good and bad things thrown in the way of a relationship. I enjoyed it very much and highly recommend it.
I received the book for review from the author and was not monetarily compensated for said review.

This book was exactly what I needed... how many of you have a grandparent that means the world to you? How many of you have lost a person that has had your back since before you existed? What happens when they are gone? What happens when your grandmother is no longer there to protect you from your father?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When Katie and her grandmother are in a car accident, they are rescued by the local EMT's, what Katie doesn't know that Adam, the EMT, is her heartbeat.
Personally this book spoke volumes to me, my Pawpaw is my life, he's one that I speak to are see every day & have since the day I was born, and currently he is coming to his final days. He will be 97 next Saturday. When I began this book and Katie and her grandmother had an accident, all I could do was think about him and our relationship. Katie and her grandmother are like my Pawpaw and I. The only difference is that I have great parents unlike Katie.
Katie is a dreamer, especially when it comes to guys. She knows she can't get close to them, so she doesn't. That is until she meets Adam. He has been burned by his ex, and is trying to make something of himself. What he doesn't know is that he is exactly what Katie needs.
Adam is defiantly not an alpha male like in some books, he's not even the guy you had a crush on in middle school. He's just an average guy... really tall, but just a guy. What is different about him is his ability help others, and what he does for Katie is above any other character I have read so far.
This book was fabulous! I started it and couldn't put it down. It will have you thinking none stop about the people in your life, what is important, and what makes your heartbeat?
