book blurb

From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author comes a sexy paranormal romance.MAXFeelings are a luxury I can’t afford. Hidden behind a shield of quiet placidity, I keep my secret safe from those who’d use it against me. Until him—the tatted up, self-centered Scar assassin hired to protect me.He takes pleasure in tormenting me, chipping away at my defenses as if I’m a toy to be played with. I hate that he continuously reminds me that I’m nothing more than a job. I hate that my body responds to his touch. I hate him.


I’m not a good guy and I don’t pretend to be. Condemn me if you want, I don’t give a crap. You’re nothing to me. No one is … except her—Max. She’s my target. And I was hired to do a hell of a lot more than protect her … I was hired to kill her.
It should’ve been simple, but it was complicated as hell.

*Standalone full-length novel. Come meet the Scars.

Scars: Immortal warriors with capabilities derived from the senses: Trackers, Sounders, Healers, Tasters, Visionaries, and the rare Reflectors. They each have what is known as an Ink, a tattoo that can be called life.

my review

5 Stars

Nashoda Rose’s Take is a little out of my normal reading genre. Jumping into it, I felt a bit intimidated – especially when it started with the glossary of terms that I had no connection to. Honestly, I read Take simply because I love Nashoda Rose’s other books. I am a huge fan and I hoped that she had written another incredible story.

I was not disappointed. This book’s plot is layered in deception and secrets; lust and passion – it’s  addictive. Spellbinding.  I thought Take was amazing and I devoured Max and Jasper’s romance in one sitting.

The two main characters could not be any more different.  Jasper is a hunter – an assassin, while Max is a healer.  But it does not matter.  They connect and the pull they feel for one another drags them together. As a reader, you experience their story – feeling their emotions, whether it be fear, heartache or desire.  Nashoda does a great job of connecting you to Max and Jasper.

As each page of Jasper and Max’s story unfolds you discover another truth and piece of their world.  Take moves at a fast pace and each moment is intense.  I loved every moment.  It’s truly a captivating read.  I thought it was a great start to the new series and I am already looking forward to more.
