Review ~ Take by Nashoda Rose



Feelings 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 fuck. 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. 

*erotic paranormal romance. 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.

Jasper stopped, turned toward me, dragged his eyes down my front then yanked off his black t-shirt and tossed it to me.
I stared at his naked chest that was a hard slab of muscle with tats drawn across his left shoulder to link with the ones on his arm.
“Put it on. You stick out like a fuckin’ cotton candy with those stupid horse sparkles.”
I quickly put it on over top and it hung down to my mid-thigh. The scent of him drew into my lungs and I inhaled deeply with my chin down until I heard his distinct chuckle. Then I wanted to shoot myself in the foot.
Jasper’s hand came around the back of my neck and he jerked me toward him. He cupped my chin with his blade still in his hand so the handle was cold against my jaw. Then he leaned in and before I could take my next breath, his mouth was on mine.

My Thoughts:

Take was full of awesomeness. To start with, there was a glossary which told of the different supes, their ability..... It explained a great deal and helped to get me ready for the story.

The story started out with a bang and kept my rapt attention throughout.

I've read many of Nashoda's other books but this is the first in her paranormal series. I hope that she keeps them coming!

This one had action, intrigue, wit and sass, sexy scenes, mystery, a quick paced plot that will keep you turning the pages, an unparalleled cast of unique supernatural beings previously unheard of. :-)

If you like paranormal book, you are bound to LOVE this one! I can't wait to read the next book.

Jasper was a cocky scar with moods that might catch you off guard. He was sexy one minute and mean the next. I would not want to be on his bad side.

Max, our heroine, has been hiding from an evil man for years. She is strong and caring. I really liked her.

These two had a scorching chemistry even when they were disagreeing. ;-)

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. As with every other book that I have read from this author, I thought it was incredible, suspenseful and most definitely sexy!
