    FINALLY! I felt like I had waited FOREVER to read this book! But let me tell you...it was TOTALLY worth the wait!

    This series has been full of ALL THE CRAZY, in the best kind of way! When I finished, I immediately said this:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the ending to this series!!! It was all I could have hoped for, and more! As ever, Faith throws in all sorts of twists and curves you won't see coming, and it's fantastic!

    I know, I say this on pretty much every review of a book written by Faith, but she is seriously a cliffhanger and curveball mastermind! I was SO anxious to finally read the end of Ivy and Eric's story, and when I finally got my hands on it (well, or at least my eyeballs), I was biting my nails the whole time, hoping and praying things would all work out for everyone. There are some MAJOR bombshells dropped in this final installment, and I'm pretty sure everyone will be horrified by a couple of the characters in this story. But just keep reading, you will not be disappointed! (And believe me, I came into reading this with some crazy-high expectations, and not only were they met, but they were exceeded in every way!)

    Eric is a yummy as ever in this book...seriously, he is ALL man. If I had it my way, it would be ME with Eric, instead of Ivy. ;) He is also learning (the hard way in my opinion) the importance of communication in relationships (notice the plural!), both the speaking AND the listening. (And perhaps learning which parts of his body he should be communicating with.) And Ivy is really learning how to balance being independent, being in a relationship, and hopefully soon being a mother, even if she had a crappy example for parents growing up. It has been so amazing to watch both of them grow throughout their story, both individually, and in their relationship.

    I think, scratch that, I KNOW there are a lot of readers out there that will be able to relate to the parts of the story dealing with Eric and Ivy's baby. I have a few friends that have dealt with similar situations, and it's not easy for anyone, but Eric and Ivy are muddling their way through it all. It's hard to say, along the way, whether or not Eric and Ivy are making the right choices...you'll have to decide for yourself it was worth it when you get to the end of their story.

    I want SO MUCH to tell you all the amazing, crazy, aweful, fantastic things that happen in this book, but I don't want to spoil it for you! JUST GO BUY IT!

    I have been a fan of Faith Sullivan's Take Me Now series from the beginning. This series is darker than Sullivan's other series, with a definite villain: Lauren, who has a lot of hate and murderous intent coiled up like a murderous snake inside of her. And Ivy, Eric's true love, is the primary object of Lauren's vitriol. Lauren wants Eric for herself and will stop at nothing to obtain him.

    All throughout this series, I've thought that Lauren's jealousy, greed, and envy were what drove her to such horrible actions. But, I learned her motivation for the things she does, in this book. There's much more than meets the eye with Lauren, and she morphed from a one-dimensional villain to a character that while I could not approve of her actions, I could certainly understand them. I love it when authors make me identify with the "bad guys" and Sullivan does that with aplomb in Hold Me Tight.

    As in the first two books in this series, Hold Me Tight is full of chemistry between Ivy and Eric. Their relationship has grown as a result of separation and difficult live events, though, so it was neat to see their relationship evolve. I loved the tender moments between the two, especially with regard to Ivy's pregnancy.

    One of my favorite things about this series are the supporting characters. There are so many great minor characters, many with intertwining storylines. Sullivan draws them all together and there is closure for each character in the series---not just the main characters.

    Throughout this entire series, Ivy has been compared to Eric's first love, Cassidy. Ivy feels that she'll never measure up to Cassidy. I always pitied Ivy for that fact, and hoped that she'd feel secure enough in their relationship to stop comparing herself to Cassidy. Well, I got my wish, and more, with the way the past unfolded in this story. It was so gratifying to find out what Cassidy was really like!

    Hold Me Tight was the strongest book of the Take Me Now series, in my opinion. It had the most drama, a great pace, and so much buildup to the conclusion of the story. I loved every page of this book, and I'm so glad that Faith Sullivan provided so much great closure for the characters I've come to love. If you're new to Faith Sullivan's work, I highly recommend her books!

    I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. The is the conclusion of Eric and Ivy's story and it was absolutely perfect. At the end of Meant For Me (book 2) Ivy leaves Eric thinking that Lauren was going to help her but as usual Lauren has other things in mind. She still wants Eric and wants Ivy out of the way at any cost. Eric can't believe Ivy left and went to Lauren for help. Why does everything have to revolve around Lauren, because that is how Lauren lives her life and she will stop at nothing to get what she wants. How many times will Lauren threaten Ivy's baby before someone finally says enough? Will Ivy go back to Eric? Will they learn the truth about Cassidy? Will Eric forgive Tim once he learns the truth? This story is full of love, pain, deceit, lies and friends you can count on. It will have you crying and laughing. So sit back and enjoy the ride that Faith will take you on in the fantastic series. I loved it and you will too.

    Hold Me Tight by Faith Sullivan 




    Faith Sullivan has once again blown me away with the twists and turns in the conclusion to the series Take Me Now.  I couldn't put the book down needing to know how all the characters fit together.  What was it that Lauren has over everyone that makes them do her bidding, and why is she so hell bent in destroying everyone's life just to be on top.  I was so entranced while reading this novel.  Faith does an amazing job in keeping you captivated with the characters lives and the struggles that each one goes through to find not necessarily happiness but "peace"of mind.  




    Ivy and Eric are struggling to find a common ground when it comes to their unborn baby.  With the ultimatum that Eric forces on Ivy, she must take matters into her own hands and side with the devil herself.  Unfortunately, Lauren didn't count on Tim finding a conscience and liking Ivy.  Lauren is struggling to keep truth from getting out and ruining her plan.  Ivy and Eric are just trying to protect their love and their baby, but will it be enough.  




    How far will Lauren go to keep the secret buried from Eric?  Will Eric and Ivy have their happily ever after with the birth of their child?  




    Sullivan has once again broken the mold on an incredible love story that truly shows the struggles and heartaches of a couple just wanting to have their HEA.

    I've reviewed the other two books in this series before, and the last book in the Take Me Now series was an utterly amazing wrap-up of this series. I'm a huge fan of Sullivan's work and I will absolutely read everything she writes, because not only is she a great writer, but I love the complex and real characters she creates. I can't stop rooting for them! Sullivan doesn't shy away from creating characters who aren't perfect, which I find refreshing and makes her stories so real and easy to identify with. Even in this book, I actually found myself feeling sorry for Lauren, who has clearly gone 'round the bend on the sanity street, but once we get a picture of what's going on in her life, it makes so much more sense. Not that it makes it okay...but I don't want to get into spoilers :) Lets just say it's quite a ride throughout this whole book and I found myself gripping my kindle with both hands a few times (for very different, er, reasons), as well as reaching for the tissue box more than once. I will say this: I never would have thought of a pocket knife in that way...and definitely will have a certain scene come to mind forever whenever I see one now! Anyhow, verdict: absolutely a must-read series, and I can't wait to read the next book Sullivan puts out!
