Sometimes you want someone so much…
Sometimes you need someone so much…
Lust can become love.
And love can turn into a deadly obsession.
Skye Sullivan knows that someone is watching her. Not just watching—stalking her. Months ago, Skye was involved in a dangerous car accident. The accident ended her dancing career and sent her fleeing back to Chicago. Skye is convinced that her stalker caused the crash, and she fears that he won’t stop pursuing her, not until she’s dead.
When someone breaks into her apartment in Chicago, Skye turns to the one man she believes can protect her—Trace Weston. Once, Trace was her lover. Two lost souls, they’d come together in a firestorm of need and desire. But then Trace had pushed her away. He’d joined the military, vanishing from her life. She’d put all of her emotion into dancing, and she’d tried to forget him.
Now Trace is one of the most successful men in the United States. Rich, driven, and carrying dark secrets, he agrees to help Skye. He’ll protect her from the danger that lurks in the darkness, but Trace wants more than to just be a guard for Skye.
He wants her. And he’ll take her. The years have changed him, hardened him. He’s not just a poor kid from the streets any longer. Now, he can have anything—or anyone—that he wants. And the one woman he has always wanted has just come back into his life. He won’t let her go again.
But with the threats mounting against Skye, she suspects that her stalker may be intimately close. He’s a man who knows her too well. As his attacks grow ever more dangerous, she realizes that if she trusts the wrong man, she could be making a fatal mistake.
Lust. Love. Obsession.
Just how far would you go in order to possess the one person you want the most?
Mine To Take is the first book in Cynthia Eden's Mine series. This one is actually a novella which starts off the series and the second book is a full fledged novel which has the same couple Skye and Trace in it. I haven't read many romantic suspense books yet, but I really liked Mine To Take. I'll have to dig in more into this genre.
Skye knows someone is watching her. She can feel being stalked but no one is ready to believe her. After all her options are exhausted she finally decides to ask help from the one person she didn't think she'd ever see again. Trace. I really liked Skye. She was a girl with her head on her shoulders. After her accident, she's worked hard to get where she is. But someone is trying to sabotage her plans.
Trace wants Skye. He's always wanted her and she's the only reason he's survived all these years. Skye just doesn't know it. But now she's back and asking for his help. Trace never intends to let her go again. I loved Trace. He was almost obsessive in his love for Skye. You can see how protective and possessive he is.
I loved the tension between Skye and Trace. They have incredible chemistry. Skye may deny her feelings for Trace at first, but when they come together they were combustible. I loved the suspense in the plot. Cynthia Eden balances the romantic elements amazing well with the suspense. Keeps you guessing who the stalker is. I loved Mine To Take and I'm looking forward to the next one.
