Take Me Down, sizzling hot interracial romance (BWWM), is a stand alone novel in the Suits in Pursuit series.

The story of Ashley and Sebastian

One night changed destiny. Six years later, Ashley Turner is confronted by the anger and bitterness that has become her crutch. Scars have left her calloused and with an attitude as sour as vinegar served neat, keeping men at a necessary distance.

Real estate investor Sebastian Stone has a huge problem. The high-rise on Peachtree Street is a financial drain on his business. A personal tragedy left him void of a solution and harboring a grudge against women bigger than his salty alter ego.

Fate orchestrates a series of events that unite the two tortured souls, proving their chance acquaintance is anything but coincidence. Unhealed wounds, lies and betrayal at play between them cannot stop the forces of attraction.

To land the promotion Ashley wants and to save everything Sebastian has spent a lifetime building, they are bound by necessity to work together. Unhinged passion erupts, but revenge threatens the second chance at love that fate intended.

This book was very repetitive. It not was also boring. However, if you enjoy lots of game playing, confrontation with no rym or reason then by all means...read this book. Although the author tried to give us the reader a reason for all the confrontational angst in the beginning of the book; it did not convince me that should be a reason to take us on an emotional drama filled roller-coaster ride. The characters are suppose to be to confident, strong, independent adults; instead they come across as two emotionally challenged children. Come on authors, write a real story. Not these two and three part books with no substance. Become a , Ruthie Robinson, Savannah j Frierson or Pepper Pace. Stop taking our money for stories that are half written and just plain awful. I wish i could get a refund. FYI: no one but no one does the written word better than Jeanie Johnson and Jayha Leigh. Get a clue and read one of their books before you write your next one.

The over melodramatic expression of the "heroine" in this book is juvenile and farfetched. Her outbursts leave me wondering if she's not psychotic, she's a yo-yo of Lydia Rowan's construction caught in a bag from which Ms. Rowan can't seem to extricate her character. 8 myths into a relationship albeit a sexual rather than committed one, the main female character is still reticent is what she exposes of herself even though she expresses to herself a desire for a relationship of trust and love. I do wish Ms. Rowan is able to relieve Ashley of her juvenile responses in book 2 as having read book 1, I am as wrung out as Sebastian emotionally. Truth be told, had I been Sebastian I would have bid Ashley syonara as she one fruit short of a fruit cake in a mad house. This of course is the authors fault as she chooses to cram more sex ally charged scenes on the pages rather than true expression of human interaction between emotionally battered victims. P.s. a proofreader would facilitate better word usage and punctuations. I should confess here and now that I will read the 2nd book as I'm hoping to see whether of not Ms. Rowan has improved her writing skills.

I loved this book! Take Me Down, a stand alone novel and the third book in the Suit in Pursuit series was a book I couldn't put down! The story of Ashley and Sebastian is a sensual dual between two people trying to get over their pasts. It was romantic and sad, and touching all at once. Sebastian was a jerk and then you learned why. Ashley was angry and bitter and when I found out why, my heart broke for her. The love scenes were hot! I had to read privately during the love scenes. The author crafts a story that feels real and I was pulled in from the first chapter. What I loved best is the ending (you'll have to read it to understand). It leaves room for imagination and I can't wait for the next book to see where Lauren H. Kelley takes me. Buy it. Read it. Enjoyed the emotional ride.
