Opposites don’t merely attract. . .they combust.
Take Me Down, an all-new, sexy contemporary standalone from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips, is available now!
Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.
Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.
Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys … But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.
Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel … everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.
Emily has a lot going on. She had several life traumas happen all at the same time, and now she’s back home helping her dad with the bed and breakfast that was her mother’s dream, putting her own dream on hold and trying to convince her dad to unload the B&B and move to Florida to live with her sister. Parker is living his life, but not really happy with it. He is simply existing. He lost a lot at a pretty young age and is still affected by his losses. He and Emily are drawn to each other, despite her reservations and the fact that he lives across the country.
I loved how Parker helped Emily to deal with her grief and take care of herself. She takes care of everything else and needed that reminder. I also liked the way he helped her understand her father better and see him how he is instead of through her fears. These two had insane chemistry, too. This was an entertaining, easy to read book.
