Summary: Evie may feel like she doesn’t measure up to her prettier, younger sister, but she still knows what she wants—Lucas, her cousin’s sexy roommate. She’s dreamed about being with him for a long time, and on the sweltering night of her sister’s wedding, it’s clear he shares her lust. Now Evie is determined to take what she desires—even if it’s just for one night….

Cover: I love the colors, but I don't think Spice Briefs should be so big and on the cover.

Thoughts: I was a little surprised when I found out Take Me Down was a short story, but since I haven't read too many erotic books that I have enjoyed much, I wanted to give this one a try. Take Me Down hooked me in from the start, with Evie and Lucas steamy scene sucking me into the story. Not only was I pulled in quickly, but I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I flew through the pages quicker than I had originally expected to.

Evie is an insecure woman, always feeling second best to her younger sister. So when Lucas shows up in the middle of the night and tells her he wants her, she is more than just a little surprised. She is determined to protect her heart, but Lucas isn't letting her go now that he has her. Evie and Lucas were definitely fun characters, and I liked that I was able get a sense of who they were in such a short time. I also wanted to learn more and was a little sad when the story came to an end.

The author does a great job in creating a quick, hot story that is descriptive and satisfying for such a short amount of pages. I definitely needed a change in genre and this novella was definitely one I am glad I picked up. I can't wait to read the rest of the Erotic Me books, I am sure I will enjoy them all. I definitely recommend this to others who like erotic fiction; this is a fast read that many will enjoy.

Favorite quote: "Lips that I'd kissed in my mind more times than I would care to count came closer, then closer still, until they were no more than a breath away from my own."
