Take Me for Granted
Take Me # 1
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Manwhore. Adrenaline junkie. Lead singer of ContraBand. What you see is what you get. I make no apologies for my actions, and by now no one expects any from me. I live my life the way I want and as long as it pushes the demons back, then I'm solid. I've never needed a chick for more than a good lay. Why would I need just one when I can have a different one every night?
Until she walks into my world.
Mouthy. Perfectionist. Princeton student. Chemistry major. Yes, that pretty much describes me. Oh, and virgin. But I'm only nineteen, and have more important things to concern myself with. What really matters is finishing my degree and getting a good job. I’ve worked hard for what I want, and do what’s expected of me. I don’t need anyone to get in my way.
Until he opens up my world.
But if I give you my world, whatever you do…don’t TAKE ME for grante
I’m not sure how I feel about this book. I kind of liked Aribel because she was a smart, good girl who said whatever was on her mind but at times she came off as kind of judgmental and b*tchy.
Grant is a lead singer of a band and can get any girl he wants by just smiling. He usually goes home with a different girl every night. Then he meet Aribel and she isn’t falling for his sh*t.
So, I liked a lot of the humor and how Aribel would deflect Grants advances and not give in to his charm. I also enjoyed watching her fall for him and how their relationship develops. What I didn’t like… it dragged at some parts. There was an issue at the beginning of the story that I felt could have been written better and not as if it wasn’t a big deal and some of the things Aribel and Grant fought over was well in my opinion something that could have been handled without all the huffing and puffing. Then again they are college aged . She is only 19 in this story so that might be where some of what I felt was immaturity came from.
