Chase and Danni are happily living on Martha’s Vineyard. The are planning their upcoming wedding, Chase has a great job as Property Manager for some of the Island’s wealthier Estate owners and Danni teaches Pilates in town. They live in a Guest house of an estate that Chase manages. Everyone is happy Chase and Danni are so in love they still can get each other sexually excited by just looking at each other. All of this changes when a new tenant moves in to the estate house, sexuality questions are brought to the surface and the boundaries of relationships are challenged.
Xander Metcalf, lead guitarist and front man for the rock band Ivory Towers has just come off of a World Tour and has leased an Estate on Martha’s Vineyard. Intentions are to unwind and purge himself from his rock god status as Zander and live his life as Alex. Alex is bisexual and has had is lifestyle exposed to the media and the world, he has come out of it strong and it did nothing to hinder his career.
If Take What You Want would have been written as an M/M novel with Chase and Alex as the Main Characters we would have still have had a good book. The characters are hot and they work great together. What I really think made this a Great book is the addition of Danni. I want to say Danni becomes the center of the story and most everything spins off of what and how Danni will respond. She is what makes the story intriguing she is the emotional backbone.
Here is where the struggle began on where to proceed with the review, you see the Author takes us on a Journey where so many things happen that I cannot in good faith fill you in on. It is a truly joyous reading experience, how can a straight couple and a bisexual man fight the stereotypes to become part of a relationship of three. I ask that when you are reading this book, to really think about the characters and their individual feelings and emotions, don’t just read the words but think about what the words mean. I am sure that it will make you love Part 2 of this series as much as I.
Lets talk about sex for a minute. I thought that the Author did an extraordinary job writing the sex scenes. The sex was erotic without being pornographic and the sex scenes with Danni were very tasteful. As a gay man I don’t enjoy reading about het sex, this may be my one exception as the sex scenes are not graphic. Well done Ann, I didn’t need to speed read the sex scenes with Danni, it was very tastefully written.
This book opens your heart, it lets you experience a different kind of Love and lets the reader consider the Possibilities.
Author Ann Lister Quote:
” The other big story thread I wanted to share: love is love – even when it involves three instead of two.”
Take What You Want
Buy Link Excerpt:
“Jesus, she’s gorgeous,” Alex sighed.
“I know,” Chase said. “I’m a lucky guy.”
Alex glanced up at Chase. “Do you have any more photos?”
Chase stood up from the couch and reached for an album sitting on the bottom shelf of the coffee table, then returned to the couch and sat down beside Alex. He handed Alex the album and watched him start to flip through the pages.
“How’d you two meet?” Alex asked.
“That’s actually a funny story,” Chase said. He leaned back against the cushions and stretched out his long legs out on top of the coffee table; his thigh brushing the side of Alex’s. “Several years ago, I hurt myself at work and my doctor recommended I give Pilates a try as a form of physical therapy. Fate dropped Danni right into my lap.”
Alex started laughing. “You hit on your Pilates instructor?”
“I swear I was in love after that first class,” Chase said. “It was that fast and intense.”
Alex turned the another page in the photo album and Chase caught a glimpse of the hard-on thickening beneath the book.
“Are you getting hard looking at my girlfriend”?” Chase teased.
