With autumn descending upon us, what better way to say farewell to summer than with our latest Lit Swagger pick, Take Me (Take a Chance #4) by Diane Alberts? Ms. Alberts is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, so you know this HOT cover is only the beginning…
To further whet your, um, appetites (yeah, those ones), I thought I’d share with you one of these super sexy teasers. Yep, I said teasers. Consider yourself warned ;)
If that wasn’t enough to stimulate your ah, curiosity, here’s the blurb:
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?
Let’s get our discussion going. Unless of course, you’re still ogling that drool-worthy cover. *fans self* :)
1. Did you feel the heroine’s Swagger? If yes, can you give an example? If no, where would you like to have seen her pick up the whip?
2. Is this couple meant to be together? What are their strengths? If you were their couples’ therapist, what issues would you have them work on?
3. How many flames would you give this book? Were the love scenes steamy and engaging? Did they make you want to jump right into bed with them?
4. Did the plot feel fresh and unique? Were you surprised by any of the twists?
5. What main ideas—themes—does the author explore? (Consider the title, often a clue to a theme.) Does the author use any symbolism to reinforce the main ideas? (symbolism: people, actions or objects that stand for something greater than themselves)
6. Did you find the ending satisfactory? Did it leave you smiling, or did you say WTF?
7. If you were the casting director, which actors would you have portray Mike and Morgan?
8. If you could ask the author a question, what would you ask?
