Take It Off Novel #11
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 6, 2016
One night as Rose Crawford steps out of a bar, she gives no second thought to lifting her hand to signal for a cab. After all, it’s the responsible thing to do.
A common occurrence.
Far safer than walking several blocks, alone, in the dark.
A familiar-looking yellow taxi with black, faux-leather seats, running meter on the dash, and a smiling driver pulls up to the curb.
Rose slides in. Gives the driver her address…
But she never reaches her destination.
Instead, she finds herself captive, at the will of a man who isn’t a driver, but a bona fide psychopath.
Trapped in a taxi she can’t escape, Rose begins to panic. As the miles between her and safety grow, hope dwindles. It isn’t until someone else joins her in captivity that her spark of hope is rekindled.
Derek is strong, capable, and surely together they can fight their way to freedom.
Then Rose finds out exactly why she’s been driven into hell. Derek may be an unwilling captive, but he isn’t going to help her.
In fact, he’s there to do the exact opposite.
Besides writing, Cambria loves a caramel latte, staying up late, sleeping in, and watching movies. She considers math human torture and has an irrational fear of chickens (yes, chickens). You can often find her running on the treadmill (she’d rather be eating a donut), painting her toenails (because she bites her fingernails), or walking her chorkie (the real boss of the house).
Cambria has written within the young adult and new adult genres, penning many paranormal and contemporary titles. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense. A few of her most recognized titles are: The Hashtag Series, Text, Torch, and Tattoo.

Taxi is Cambria Herbert’s latest release from her Take It Off series. Since I haven’t read any books that accompany this one, I’m not sure how the characters and books are interconnected. It didn’t matter to me though – I was pumped to read Taxi because I really enjoy this author’s writing style and I thought the blurb looked exciting.
Taxi is Rose’s crazy journey. She is an easy-going 20 something who owns her own coffee truck and she’s a pretty likeable character. Her predictable life takes an intense turn after an evening out on the town when she decides to cab it back to her home. It turns out to be one of the best and worst decisions of her life.
The worst because she gets kidnapped and is held for no rhyme or reason. The best because it takes Derek from just being one of her regular customers who she has shared several flirtatious yet casual conversations with. The high-end situation bonds them and solidifies any feelings that they have for one another.
Their adventure together is filled up drama and it was highly suspenseful. Moment to moment – I wasn’t sure what was going to happen next nor was I sure why they were both kidnapped. And the way it unfolds once the truth is revealed is awesome – jaw droppingly good!!
Even though the plot were quite enticing, I had a little trouble connecting with the main characters. I wish that I got to experience Rose and Derek before they were kidnapped so that I felt more connected to their response to one another during their captivity. It’s my only flaw with the book.
Overall, it’s a solid sorry and it was fun to read. I will definitely check out the other books in this series. Definitely check out Derek and Rose’s romance in Taxi.
