Blog Tour/Review & Giveaway ($20 GC) - Taking Something by Elizabeth Lee

A Review by Carol - Rated 3 1/2 Stars out of 5


I know what you're thinking. “You were such a jerk, Nick!”  Believe me, I know I screwed up the best thing I had going in my life, but that was kind of my thing. I’d learned how to run cons before I could even form complete sentences, and I'd always been selfish.  But I changed.  Lila forgave me, my brother and I were getting along, and I was trying to make a name for myself in the music world.

At least that was what I was trying to do when I negotiated my way into the recording studio with pop superstar Sadie Sinclair. I thought it would be a piece of cake—charm my way into her heart and into her record label's good graces.

Just when I thought I had it all figured out, I got mixed up in a web of lies, manipulation, and deception. A web that had me questioning my motives and desires altogether.

Was the fame and fortune really worth the price?

This was such an enjoyable read but it didn’t stand out to me – I had problems with the book only being in Nick’s POV.  I found myself at times wanting to know what the hell was going through Gia’s mind!

I think maybe why I didn’t connect fully with the book is because of the love triangle….for some reason I always choose the underdog and my heart hurts for them.  OH….and don’t get me started on the cheating….I would have liked to have seen Nick eat dirt a few times….I actually started to hate him and wanted Gia to find a better man than Nick.

I put aside my personal feelings regarding triangles and cheating to write this and I did enjoy reading what was going on in Nick’s mind.  Now take the ending….and that was OFF THE ROOF!!  Totally twisted the “norm” and saved the story for me!


When I'm not writing or playing the part of wife and mother, you can find me dancing back-up for Beyonce, singing back-up for Miranda, or sunning myself on the beach with a drink in hand.  

Here's the thing about being born and raised in a small town—you have a very vivid imagination!  Now, I channel it all to create stories where the girl always ends up with the right guy, first kisses are magical, and a happy ending is just that!
