Take What You Want By Jeanette Grey

Take What You WantShe needs an escape…and he’s exactly what she had in mind.

College senior Ellen Price spends every spare minute studying to get into medical school. Until spring break yawns before her, as empty as her wallet.

With no money to hit the beach, she fills her empty to-do list with a plan: for just one week, she will become the kind of take-no-prisoners woman she secretly wishes to be, starting with the hot guy at the bar. It's a no-risk situation: at the end of break, he’ll head back to his campus, and she’ll go back to hers. No muss, no fuss.

At first, Josh Markley isn’t sure what to think when the quiet, intense beauty from his pre-med classes approaches him for a night of casual sex. Even more mystifying, she doesn’t seem to return his recognition. But if she wants to play “strangers in a bar”, he’s game.

Their passionate night is a welcome respite from life’s stress, but afterward, Josh realizes he wants more—from himself, from life, from Ellen. Except she still thinks he’s a one-off she’ll never see again. Confessing the truth now—before she figures it out on her own—could shatter the fragile beginnings of just what the doctor ordered. A forever love.

Warning: Contains mistaken identities, a sometimes-glasses-wearing hottie, deep questions about figuring out what you want from life, and a red-hot college romance.

Grace's Review:

 She is the shy and smart one who just wants one memorable spring break before heading to medical school. For once in her life Ellen Price was going to take what she wants...starting with the very hot guy at the bar. Josh Markley wondered what game the girl he'd been admiring from his pre-med classes was playing at when she didn't recognize him at the bar. She wants a one night stand with him, and he surely isn't about to pass that up. One intense night leads to one week of passion, each telling the other half truths. What will happen to them after the week is over?

Oh my, oh my!!! If you're a fan of college romances with lots of heat, don't hesitate to pick this one up! It may be a quick read, but Jeanette Grey has managed to create an emotion-filled novella that is so very satisfying. I just adored Ellen and Josh right from the start. I loved how Ellen was willing to be bold and step out of her comfort zone. Josh may have played along with her little game, but I don't really blame him for trying not to scare her away. Josh...le sigh...glasses, Harley and all! All I have to say is where was Josh Markley when I was in college?

If you've never read anything from Jeanette Grey, then you're in for a real treat! She's awesome at writing highly erotic stories with lots of heart. I love how she combines words to make them flow to make you feel like you're reading something truly special. This story falls into the New Adult category. Grey really does capture the uncertainty and fears of college seniors who are just planning out their lives. In Take What You Want the steamy scenes are well placed, and yet there is a whole lot of story and genuine romance, as well. I really enjoy quick, satisfying reads, and this one did not disappoint. Loved, loved, loved!
