Book Title: Take Two
Author: Laurelin Paige
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
He’s ready for his close up, but she’s the one calling the shots.
On the night of her graduation from film school, straight-laced Maddie Bauers fell completely
out of character for an oh-my-god make-out session with a perfect stranger. Complete with the
Seven years later, that romantic interlude is still fresh in her mind. That stranger is now a rich
and famous actor. And she’s one very distracted camera assistant working on his latest
production. She might consider another tryst…if he even remembers her.
Micah Preston does indeed remember Maddie. Too bad he’s sworn off Hollywood
relationships. He allows himself as much sex as he likes—and oh, he does like—but anything
more is asking for trouble. For the woman, not for him. Yet knowing Maddie could want more
than a movie-set fling doesn’t stop him from pursuing her like a moth drawn to hot stage lights.
But as the shoot nears its end, it’s decision time. Is it time to call, “Cut!” on their affair, or is
there enough material for a sequel?
Warning: Contains a dreamy movie star hero, a focus-pulling heroine, off-the-charts instant chemistry,
steamy sex in near-public locations, and a new use for lip gloss.
In one swift move, he had her pressed against the wall, his mouth hovering above her own. The rough stone behind her barely registered as she licked her lips in anticipation of the kiss she knew was coming. But he didn’t lean in. Instead, he brought his finger to her cheek and caressed it softly. She shuddered at the electric pulses that followed his light touch as he traced her jawline. When he reached her chin, he lifted her face up to within an inch of his mouth. She felt his breath, hot and sweet, on her skin. And then his mouth was on hers, tugging at her bottom lip, teasing her until she eagerly drew him in, wrapping her arms around his neck.
The kiss built, each stroke varying in pressure and intensity. Soft nips evolved into frenzied exploration, their tongues dancing, plunging deeply and hungrily. She savored his taste. A rush of pleasure rippled through her and she trembled under his attentive suckling.
His mouth released hers, traveled along her jaw and down her throat, his trail of kisses searing into her skin. She clung to a fistful of his thick hair while he alternately nibbled and nuzzled her neck, stoking the fire in her core. When he raised his head to reclaim her lips, she glimpsed a greedy longing in his eyes.
5 Sexy, Fan Girling Stars
Maddie Bauers is smart, driven, and extremely serious when it comes to her career, and
success. Micah Preston, is just as driven and talented. Both are determined and unrelenting
when it comes to sacrificing everything to accomplish their dreams. Success, and acclaim
within the film industry. Micah, acting and becoming a huge movie star, and Maddie ultimately,
directing her own films. When they first meet, their attraction is palatable. Years later it has not
diminished, not in the slightest.
Take Two is as sexy as it is fun. It’s a fast, easy read. It’s a complete departure from the Fixed
Series. Coming off of a severe book hangover this is a perfect choice. Laurelin Paige gives us
scorching sex scenes and sexual chemistry that is out of this world. This all being said, even
when in the midst of the hottest and tingle inducing scenes, you always left wanting for more.
One scene takes place in a club, surrounded by people, and HOLY HELL, HAWT!!!!
“Maddie circled his penis with her lubricated hand, eliciting a gasp. A nice surprise indeed.
He shot a glance around the bar, hoping no one was paying attention to them. But then her
thumb grazed the top of his crown and his eyes raced back to her. Who fucking cared if the y
were noticed? It was worth the risk of being caught. In fact that was half the excitement” –
Laurelin Paige, Take Two
Maddie and Micah are both fabulously strong characters, in their own ways. They are both
equally stubborn, and hard headed, it makes for some spectacular banter and tension. The
writing is flawless and smart, the pacing perfection.
What is most enjoyable about Take Two, it’s an intelligent, fun, light, super sexy, read. Your
lady parts will tingle; you’ll swoon, sigh, and fall in love with both Maddie and Micah. I mean
how can you not love a standalone read, with a strong, sexy, smart, lady lead and a sexier than
sin, movie star? ~Angie~
Laurelin Paige is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She's a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there's kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn't seem to complain, however. When she isn't reading or writing sexy stories, she's probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine.
