Review: Taking Something by Elizabeth Lee

Taking Something by Elizabeth Lee is now LIVE!! 

Taking Something (Give Me Something, #2)
BLURB: I know what you’re thinking. “You were such a jerk, Nick!” Believe me, I know I screwed up the best thing I had going in my life, but that was kind of my thing. I’d learned how to run cons before I could even form complete sentences, and I’d always been selfish. But I changed. Lila forgave me, my brother and I were getting along, and I was trying to make a name for myself in the music world.

At least that was what I was trying to do when I negotiated my way into the recording studio with pop superstar Sadie Sinclair. I thought it would be a piece of cake—charm my way into her heart and into her record label’s good graces.

Just when I thought I had it all figured out, I got mixed up in a web of lies, manipulation, and deception. A web that had me questioning my motives and desires altogether.

Was the fame and fortune really worth the price?

My Review

So here's the thing, most people are probably going into this story hating Nick.. I, on the other hand went into this story already half in love with him. *gasp* Yes, I was on Team Nick. Even after he was a douchebag. Because I just had a feeling he would redeem himself in some way. He just made some stupid mistakes, hell we all do. 

Anyways in my eyes he does redeem himself in his book. But it was done in a way that didn't take away from his character. You don't go into this story afraid Elizabeth Lee is going to make him so different that you hate it. Because she doesn't. He is still a con man for the majority of the book but I found myself falling more and more in love with him and understanding him. Oh and he's hot.. so that doesn't hurt. I think what I enjoyed most about this story was being in his head. Knowing how he was feeling through everything. The way he grew in this book was fantastic too. I never doubted he could be the person he becomes. So if you weren't Team Nick before, you'd be crazy not to be Team Nick after hearing his story. Enter the world of Nick, Sadie and Gia. You won't be disappointed.

About the Author:

When I'm not writing or playing the part of wife and mother, you can find me dancing back-up for Beyonce, singing back-up for Miranda, or sunning myself on the beach with a drink in hand.  Here's the thing about being born and raised in a small town—you have a very vivid imagination!  Now, I channel it all to create stories where the girl always ends up with the right guy, first kisses are magical, and a happy ending is just that!
