Take Me (Take a Chance #4)

Cover_Take-Me-Take-a-Chance-4-Diane-Alberts-200x300With 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 😉

TakeMeTeaser3 (2)

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?



  1. I’ll be here, stopping by occasionally, if anyone wants to ask me something, too! 😉

  2. So the saying is Don’t judge a book by its cover, and in all honesty, it was the cover that made me say “Hmmm, I want to read this!” But the cover is only an appetizer. This story had it all for me. Great banter, wonderful chemistry, and some nice sizzle. What more can one ask for?

  3. Sounds awesome hot! Love the long legs, since I’m short, I always oine to be a heroine with long legs. The dude is hot. Love Vegas too. Sassy gal, hot dude, vegas = winner!

  4. That book ever alone is worth the read!

  5. Let me just say, I loved Mike. I loved how his alpha male hackles raised and how that totally pissed him off. I also loved how self-aware he was when he realized he was sliding down the dark path toward love. His reactions and monologue seemed very authentic.

  6. Morgan definitely had swagger! I found myself totally living vicariously through her…I mean, I’d never have the guts to make-out at a table at a bar with a total stranger!

    Holy Kamoly….This book is so great and I say ‘is’ because Im just half way through….but I wanted to jump in here with what I know so far!
    I love love love the main characters…Morgan has shit-loads of swgger…she is so confident in and out of bed and isnt afraid to go after what she wants. Mike is major Alpha and so blind to his vulnerability that I just wnat to snap him right up. I love the way he tries to control the un-controllable Morgan! As far as who I’d have play them im picturing my fav Gerard Butler as Mike and possibly Emma Stone as Morgan!!!! How cute!
    Im not far enough in to talk about plots or themes but man can I talk about love scenes…I give it ten HOT flames! Love the battle for who’s on top…literally and figuratively! I so enjoy a female who can make a jaded bachelor drop to his knees! They are great opponents which makes them a great exciting match…the battles for supremecy are filled with passion and heat! Just the way I like my romances! Cant wait to finish this awesome read today and check back with y’all! So freaking well written! Reads like a dream!!! Love you Diane!

    • Aw, thank you!! I had so much fun writing that first scene where they both grapple for control. It was so perfect for these two characters and they wouldn’t have it any other way, let me tell you! Haha!

      And I love, love, love that casting! I’d so visit that set and make Gerard sing Phantom to me. 😉

        Diane, Just finished and I have just one complaint…Wish it was a little longer so I couldve spent more time with these characters…even the secondary ones were interesting!
        Possible theme? You don’t always get what you want, but sometimes you get just what you need! (pssssst! I neeeeed a hot social studies teacher! Nothing more fun than a unassuming suit who’s an animal behind closed doors!) Great Read! Will definitely be checking out your other works!
