Text is a New Adult stand alone novel in the Take it Off series by Cambria Hebert. It is not intended for young adult readers. I’m so happy I finally got my hands on a copy! I ordered it a few weeks ago, and it was estimated to arrive her just after Christmas. A friend of mine guessed they would send it here by sea turtle, but it turns out they sent it on an Olympic sea turtle: it got here weeks before it should have been. But did I mind it being here so soon? I don’t think so!
I wasn’t ready to die. I had books to finish. My newest fictional boyfriend had totally stolen my heart

I didn’t want a knight in shining armor. Knights with shining armor were posers. Everyone knew that the really good knights were the ones whose armor bore chinks and scratches from the battle they were strond enough to survive.
Nathan is marine who is stationed in reservist base in Pennsylvania. He plays poker with his friends once a week. One of his friends is late, so Nathan texts him. Then he receives an answer from his friend. But it is not from his friend. It is from a woman who has been kidnapped. And from that moment, Nathan is the one to rescue Honor. Even if he has to risk his own life doing it.
Wow. Cambria kept me up reading at night. Again. How in the world does she do it? Write novel after novel and still make them all worth reading every damn letter in it? This one had more action, more suspense then most of the other books in this series. The romance bit started later on, and I liked it. I think that really made this story stronger, better. And I really have to mention Cambria’s acknowledgements. I really love the way she writes them. More authors should do it that way. No, wait – they shouldn’t. Otherwise Cambria’s wouldn’t be so cool.
