Overview


In Try Me by Diane Alberts readers will learn that what happens in Vegas...can lead to romance.

It took one wild night for Sergeant Jeremy Addison to realize that Vegas? Was a bad idea.

Bloody. Bruised. Dehydrated. Abandoned in the desert, and left to stagger down the road. The only way this leave could get worse was if his savior was his ex-best friend's sister...and the girl he'd loved since childhood.

The last person Erica expected to find on the roadside was her high school crush. She hadn't seen Jeremy in seven years—ever since the night he said he loved her, and she ran away. Losing him then had been a mistake, but wanting him now could be catastrophic if he discovered the secret that chased every other man from her life. But with a tall, tattooed Marine determined to prove he's always been faithful, can Erica resist his advances...or will she surrender ground and give love a try?

    Try Me (Take a Chance, #1) by Diane Albert

    Reading Try Me by Diane Albert’s has lead me to go find out if she has written more books, I enjoyed this story it is a fast read and quite enjoyable. Oh and did I mention a sexy looking Marine.

    Diane’s writing is good, words flowed well, I thought both characters had great chemistry together, plus the cover wow, I probably shouldn’t admit half the reason I signed up to read and review this was because of the cover…but it was worth it.

    We meet Jeremy who is off on leave, drinking and fighting he wakes up in the desert bruised and bloody. Knowing he needs to get moving before he dies for dehydration he sticks his thumb out for a ride.

    Erica driving down the highway stops to help someone out and cannot believe her eyes when she sees its Jeremy the man she loved and rejected.

    This story is fantastic, sexy Sergeant Jeremy Addison still loves Erica, Erica still loves Jeremy ….but can they put the past behind them and start over? Does true love conquer all?

    All you can do is go purchase Try Me to find out! I would recommend Try Me to anyone who loves romance a bit of heartbreak and finding lost love and starting over. Diane Albert’s is one fantastic author and I cannot wait to read more of her books.

    Come for the abs… stay for the book. Try Me, by Diane Alb

    Come for the abs… stay for the book.
    Try Me, by Diane Alberts is so much more than it’s smoking hot cover. Alberts created two very likable characters in Jeremy and Erica, and the tension between them is as steamy as the book’s cover. They story pulls you in from the first page and leaves you tapping at the screen of your eReader hoping for more.

    3.75 stars

    Jeremy had a rough night and by the looks of his surroundings it seems he is bound to have even a rougher day. Taking a chance that a stranger might help him out, he tries to hitch a ride. Even in his dazed state he recognizes the voice of the woman who stopped to help -- Erica, the woman he never forgot.

    I enjoyed the emotions brought to the page by the Diane Alberts. Each emotion that was portrayed by both Jeremy and Erica felt real and revealed a lot about their personalities, struggles and hesitations. It was what truly helped me relate to the characters in a more personal level.

    Jeremy and Erica's interactions were honest and emotional and their chemistry was easily palpable throughout the book. This was what truly sold me the story. I appreciated the way the time the author spent bringing their stories to the front so that there couldn't be any more misunderstandings between them so that they could move forward once and for all.

    Try Me, the first story in the Take a Chance series is a touching story about second chances with great mix of drama and romance.

    I look forward to reading more about Erica's brother, Thomas, in Love Me . I want to get to the bottom of the conflict between Jeremy and Thomas and maybe see him moving on in his life now that he had the chance to make amends with Jeremy.

    Good for the price!

    A good, easy read. It is very short so there are many gaps in the plot and it is hard to build a close relationship with the characters, but its a sexy, romantic book about unconditional love that bridges time and emotional barriers.

    I loved this story. It was well written, and I caught myself laughing out-loud a few times.. It was such a fun little love story.My only complaint is that the story was not long enough. I was sad to see it end. I have read all of Diane Albert's books so far and have enjoyed them all. Oh and keep the smokin' hot covers coming, Diane!

    Entangled Publishing has completely changed my opinion about nov

    Entangled Publishing has completely changed my opinion about novellas. They really are perfect for when you're looking for a quick read, especially if it's romance.
    A few weeks ago, I read Divinely Ruined by Diane Alberts. It was the first book that I had read that was written by Diane and I absolutely loved it. Try Me was just as good and in some ways, even better.

    Try Me is the story of Jeremy and Erica, two people who have loved each other forever but lost their chance (or so they thought)..until 7 years later when, call it fate/destiny or co-incidence, something brings them together again.

    This book has everything from friendship, childhood crushes and unrequited love to tragedy, insecurities and some serious emotional turmoil.

    Diane has once again written a deep and wonderful love story involving two people you can't help but root for.

    Jeremy and Erica are from different worlds. Sure, they were close as children but Jeremy has had a rough life while Erica's was mostly smooth sailing. Yet, despite their differences, Erica's the one girl who has always been on Jeremy's mind, the one who makes him wear his heart on his sleeve.

    Their shared past, even if not exactly romantic, just made the chemistry between them all the more intense and I loved that. Although individually they both have their issues, together, Jeremy's raw emotions somehow balance Erica's doubts and fears. Believe me, sparks were flying.

    Try Me is a sweet, heart-warming story about two people that were just meant to be together trying to find their way back to each other.

    Try Me was an wonderful and captivating love story. Young and in

    Try Me was an wonderful and captivating love story. Young and in love Erica and Jeremy both made mistakes. Confident that their futures will never be together; they have lived the past eight years trying to move forward. Even though this is proving harder than anticipated; neither of them though. It they would find one another on a lonely desolate road in the desert. Erica is a wounded and fragile woman after what life has unfolded for her in the past few years. Determined that Jeremy will be like every other man she has known; she is determined to keep herself at a distance. This proves harder than planned when Jeremy begins pressing her boundaries, and searching for a way into her future. This story was very short, and over in a blink of the eye, but not without securing me as a new fan. I am anxious to see what else the Take a Chance series has to offer.

    This was the most amazing story! Jeremy is so hot (and omg those abs that cover I want him for that alone the tats so sexy!) and he's a total hero type, and he wants to rescue Erica but she's afraid she's not good enough for him. And so many misunderstandings when they used to be childhood sweethearts! It adds just enough conflict to give them something difficult to struggle through to a rewarding end. Loved this book!

    I read this all in one sitting, and stayed up to 1:30 a.m. to finish it! I loved the hero, Jeremy, completely. A boy from the wrong side of the tracks and from the worst possible family background who feels he's not good enough for the women he's loved since childhood, a woman who now has secrets she believes makes her unworthy as well. Watching the two of them come together and find the acceptance and love they've been longing for was a great emotional ride! I love friends-to-lovers stories, but this one also had a bit of a twist on that theme by inserting a major crisis into their friendship that made them believe they were no longer friends. I liked that variation, as it added another layer of conflict between them. A great read!

    Good Book! Try Me (Take a Chance #1) by Diane Alberts is a well

    Good Book!

    Try Me (Take a Chance #1) by Diane Alberts is a well-written, seductive novella. I have read all of the books in the Take a Chance series and enjoyed each and every one of them.

    This story is about Marine Sergeant Jeremy Addison and attorney Erica Jones. Erica and Jeremy have known each other since childhood and fell in love somewhere along the way. Immediately before Jeremy deployed for the first time, he had a falling out with Tommy, his best friend and Erica's older brother. It has been seven long years since Erica, Jeremy and Tommy have seen or even talked to each other. Now Jeremy is home on leave, and he runs into Erica on the side of the road.

    Erica and Jeremy still have tremendous chemistry and they both finally foresee a future together. However, Erica has a secret which she believes will prevent Jeremy from loving her completely. Luckily they are able to work things out.

    I really liked this novella, especially the unexpected ending. Erica and Jeremy are real and their love is tangible. In addition, the build up to their lovemaking is both seductive and sensual. Don't pass up the opportunity to read Try Me and the entire Take a Chance series.

    I Loved this book . Jeremey and Erica where two great People to get to know. It is a short fast read. I have to say that I find all Dianes books so good I cannot put them down once I start them. It is short as people said ,but that is what these books are short reads. I love that I care about what is going to happen to these two people. The people surrounding them are just as interesting. Get this for a quick read on the beach or plane you won't be sorry. Thank Diane your books make me laugh, cry, anger and sigh. You make me feel all this in such a short time. Thank you!

    Review: Take a Chance #1: Try Me

    Try Me by Diane Alberts

    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    Try Me by Diane Alberts is the first book in her Take a Chance series. This book starts with Jeremy, our hunky Marine stranded in the Las Vegas desert, beat up, thirsty and hungover. His savior is none other than the one that got ran away seven years ago, Erica. This is a story full of life's strange coincidences, people's misunderstandings of situations, and how they make what turns about to be the wrong decision based on that misunderstanding. It's about second chances, and lasting love for who the person is and not just how the person looks on the outside.
    Once again a book from Entangled publishing has been a thoroughly enjoyable read.
    This book has a Happily Ever After and no cliffhanger.

    Up next...
    Love Me (Take a Chance #2)
