This book’s main plot is not new for Julie Cannon: former lovers who meet again in a corporate environment that precludes any possible involvement but, at the same time, encourages a simmering attraction. The author used a similar plot line in her book ‘I remember’, published in 2013. In ‘Take me there’, Adrienne and Sloan meet twelve years later after a passionate relationship during college years. Time changed them both, specially Adrienne who became a mother. But has time extinguished the flame completely? And even if the attraction is still there, can they act on it without legal or ethical issues?
I found that the main premise of the book is interesting but the execution could have been better. The plot skims through the boardroom conflict which could have been exploited better showcasing the sexual tension and disputes. Additionally, the story’s focus shifts between the main protagonists and Lauren and Elliott, characters of Cannon’s ‘Come and get me’. The book sometimes drags with excesive details on the supporting couple but ends a bit abruptly on the main story.
Overall, a good idea with a not so good execution but entertaining anyway. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4.
