First, he took my heart.
It started in high school. I was his girlfriend…he was the love of my life.
We had plans for after graduation. We were going to escape—he from his family's reputation and me from my father's control.
But all that changed the summer before college. Charged with a crime he hadn't committed, he was whisked away from life, never to be heard from again.
Then, he takes my body.
Twelve years later, he's back. He's bigger, he's tougher, and he's harder around the edges. He's no longer the boy I fell in love with.
But I'm no longer the girl who gave him her heart.
Everything's changed between us. Anger, resentment, and bitterness have replaced happiness, love, and trust.
Except for when darkness falls. That's when he comes to me at night, taking what is still his.
Now, he's going to take my soul.
When the lines between our old love and our new hate begin to blur, I know that, this time, I might not survive if he leaves.

R.L. Kenderson's TAKE ME IN THE NIGHT was an entertaining story that takes you from lovers to enemies and back again.
High school sweethearts Addison and Maddox are ripped apart when Maddox is accused of a crime he didn't commit. Given the option to join the military, he leaps on it eventually becoming a Navy SEAL and leaving the small town behind. Addison, thinking he's in prison, later goes on to become a successful lawyer as she fights the good fight to keep her clients safe. But then, Maddox returns home.
Likes: I liked the premise for the story. The writing duo of R.L. Kenderson did a great job detailing the lives and woes of both Maddox and Addison. The first time Maddox comes to see Addison (in her apartment) set the tone for the direction of the story and the chemistry that exists between the two characters only gets better with each page. Addison is a strong character and I really enjoyed how she didn't back down from Maddox and gave as good as he did.
Dislikes: Her father. Oh, and Simon. Enough said there.
Overall, TAKE ME IN THE NIGHT is a romance that hits all the right buttons and then some and you'll quickly find yourself cheering the couple on so that they can finally have their happily ever after.
