Casey’s Thoughts ❤
I have been patiently waiting… well, maybe not. I’ve been dying to get Meant for Me! Take Me Now pulled me in and took me for a ride that I didn’t’ want to get off. Meant for Me did the exact same thing!
Ivy and Eric’s story continues. They are expecting a little one, but there are a lot of close calls. Not like the typical baby issues. It’s more like the bitch from book one just can’t get enough! I mean, Lauren is a conniving, heartless, bitch. (That’s me being nice about it.)
Ivy is working with Will on the screenplay, but what they don’t realize is how their life is about to change when Lauren walks back into the picture and holds all of the cards.
Ivy is one tough cookie. Not only has she come from nothing, but she has tried her best to make something of herself. She has met the one person that makes her whole. What she doesn’t factor in is Will making her fly to LA, Lauren rearing her ugly head, and the chance that her baby could be in danger.
Will is still Will. Arrogant, pulls Ivy along, and looks out for himself. He does however shock us all in more than one. In fact, I kinda grew to like him in this one.
Eric, oh Eric. There’s nothing like a hard working’ man supporting his lady. He still carries some baggage, and that baggage and thoughts are what caused me to scream, “Nooooooooooooo!” Please don’t let your mind think like a guy, scared of what ifs, and the future you can’t predict. Don’t make Ivy choose; just don’t!
There are several characters that will leave you speechless with what is really going on with them. The ending had me wanting to knock some sense into Ivy. I wanted to beg for her not to do it!
On a different note, my favorite character is Wanda, the nurse. She keeps it real for Ivy and Eric. She calls it like she see’s it. I felt like her character is a minor roll, but has the biggest impact of all!
So, if you have read Take Me Now, what are you waiting for? 1-click Meant For Me like yesterday! (Oh, wait it wasn’t live then!) I can’t wait for Hold Me Tight! I have got to have more of Ivy, Eric, and everyone else along on this ride!
