Married in the morning…

Professional heartbreaker Mike Worth thrived on the chase—and dancer Morgan Collins represented the ultimate prize. But there was no way he was going to throw away his single-man status…not even for an elusive redhead with sparkling eyes and mile-long legs. So how did he let one drunken Vegas night end with I do instead of hell no?

Morgan’s life revolved around her career and she had no intention of letting a man interfere—even if Mike made her question all her rules about love. At his urging, she reluctantly agreed to give their spur-of–moment marriage a chance. But once their trial-honeymoon ended, would she choose to follow the dance and leave her unforgettable husband behind?


My review:

Take Me is the fourth book in Diane Alberts’ Take a Chance Series and I have been a huge fan of the series from the first book.  Take Me is a fantastic addition and rivals the first book, Try Me, as my fave in the series.

Morgan Collins isn’t like a lot of women her age.  She’s not looking for a husband or the 2.5 kids all comfortably tucked away behind a white picket fence in the suburbs.  She’s a dancer and it’s all she’s ever wanted to be.  She lives in the spotlight and thrives on the stage.  When she meets Mike at a bar after a show, she’s completely put off by his attitude and cockiness.  But if she’s being honest with herself, she can’t deny he’s pretty damn sexy and may be quite interesting to get to know better….for tonight.  After overhearing Mike talk to his buddies and his own theories on love, she is more certain that he’s perfect company for tonight.  His views on love and relationships are exactly the same as hers.  Surely one night between the sheets will be enough for both of them…..well, you know what they say about the best laid plans.

Looking around the bar at his friends, Mike Worth knows there’s no way these guys will ever be celebrating HIS bachelor party.  He’s not the marrying type.  Never has been.  He’s living his love life exactly the way he wants and in his own terms.  He loves his job as a middle school history teacher and loves having new women to keep him occupied after hours.  Yep, life is good and the feisty red-head he met at the bar tonight is exactly the type of gal he’s in the mood for tonight.  True to his exemplary taste in women, she doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the sex….but she does disappoint when she’s the one to cut the evening short after their tryst.  That’s neer happened to Mike before.  He’s the one to let the gal down easy after the fun had ended.  Now, he can’t get Morgan out of his head and he soon realizes he may be in serious jeopardy of throwing all his relationship cautions to the wind.

From start to finish, this novella was hot and filled with passion and feeling. To have the smart and sexy Mike meet his match was just priceless!  Morgan had him all tied up in knots from the moment they meet and is it so delicious! She really gave his game right back to him and it was so fun to watch how it played out.  We know Mike from the pervious books, and as much as I love him, I knew although he may be constantly knocking the whole ball and chain thing, he truly was missing it.  Morgan is strong, talented and determined.  She lives her life to make herself happy and even thought she is happy, you can tell that deep down she has a longing for more.  Morgan and Mike were paired beautifully and the push and pull between them jumped off the pages.  They have fantastic chemistry.  Without getting spoilery, I will just say that I absolutely LOVED the last few chapters.  I could see it all playing out in my mind’s eye and it was just perfect for Mike and Morgan *dreamy sigh* I also loved that in the epilogue we got to see all of the characters form the series, together.  To see the entire family with spouses and kids was just wonderful! Such a treat!

Thank you, Diane, for another fun, flirty, sexy and emotional read!
