Another heartbreaking, breathtaking novel by Katie McGarry. After finishing Take Me On Katie has become one of my favorites, so far there hasn’t been a book I read by her that I didn’t enjoy. It seems the more I read Pushing The Limits series, more I fall in love with it. Katie has a way to pull a reader into a story. Take Me On wasn’t any different. What I love about the series, the characters feel so real, and everything that is happening to me. I’m not sure why, but out of all books, Take Me On was most intense and actually my most favorite one. It had more action. It always had something happening. I Loved the cover for Take Me On, you can tell by the cover, how the two of them are leaned into each other something big is going to happen. When I saw the cover, it made me curious, even before I read the summary. Once again I wasn’t disappointed.
West & Haley: Besides Issaiah & Rachel, West & Haley were my favorite couple; there was something unique about the two of them. The two of them were so different; I didn’t see them falling for one another, especially West. When he was first introduced in Crash Into Me I wasn’t his biggest fan, he seemed like he didn’t care about anything, just himself. However as this book progressed, I saw that it was not the case. He cared about his sister. He cared about Haley. If a reason he’s so messed up is because his father didn’t treat him like a father should. My heart went out for him when his father kicked him out, when he had a talk with Rachel, I knew he blamed himself but I didn’t know how much. I had a feeling he cared for Haley when he went after those guys, when he agreed to fight, for her. Who would do something like that? Unless they had feelings for that person. I saw how much he changed through the book. How Haley changed him, affected him. By end of book I almost didn’t recognize him, it was like two different people. As for Haley, I felt bad for her, where she was living, how she had given up fighting after what happened with Matt, how he felt that it was her fault. I could tell when she was training again and training West that she missed it. I’m glad that West made her see that, and she ended up going back. The Love between two of them were real. How they looked at each other, how they acted around each other. I knew that they belonged together.
Take Me On is a novel about choices, and how the choices that you make, can affect everyone around you, especially the ones that you love. Like Haley and her living situation and her choice giving up fighting after what happened Matt. I hated him from a start, I hoped that West would teach him lesson somehow. No guy should hit a girl, ever. It’s no wonder that she was afraid of him. She was probably afraid that he might do it again, there was few times I expected him to try. Once again I loved reading from both West & Haley’s point of view. Since last book I always wondered what was going through West’s mind, especially after what happened with Rachel. What was he thinking? Feeling? After reading this book, I love West and I saw how hard he worked, to be different. I was proud of his accomplishments. This book made me smile, cry and even get angry at times or frustrated with characters. Take Me On filled with Suspense, love, drama and I’m eager to see what story Katie comes up with next.
