Mine to Take (Mine #1)
by Cynthia Eden
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?

I’ve got this book for free on Amazon. The cover was whispering at me to read this book already..
So I did! I’ve started to read this book without no idea what it could possibly be about. No blurb, not idea about the characters, no clue what others thought, nothing. But I still did read it and I was left speechless at the end of the book! Why? It is easy.
First of all, I was amazed by Skye. She’s so damn fragile and scared, she’s always trembling with the fear that next time won’t exist for her, but she is also strong, stubborn and so interesting. Skye used to be a ballerina, the most beautiful and talented there was. She used to blind the viewers with her light, with her passion and her fire. She used to dance for her first lover, she used to tell you with her dance the story of anyone’s life, until she fell. She was in a car accident, her car destroyed her leg and she never thought she would make another step. But months of therapy made her able to step again, to take another path. She is now preparing with her last money to open a studio.
But the fear is back.
Every time she takes a step she stumbles on someone whispering that she will be his only one. She can no longer live like this and she finds herself forced to call more than the police. Moved to Chicago after the incident, she now knows only one person that can save her from this darkness and nightmare. her first lover…
Trace Weston. Dark, possessive, hardcore, unmovable, powerful and most of all dominant. He knows what he wants and he will get it. Not with flowers, romantic dinners or hugs. He will get her just the way he had always had her. Raw, primal, dark, passionate. She will be his again even if it is the last thing on the earth he is going to do. His eyes are so well described in this book that sometimes I got the impression that the same pair of eyes were following me.
When his beautiful ex-lover gets into his building seeking help, he has no reason to push her back. She came back for him! And she will never forget that. Now, he is not satisfied with only being her bodyguard, but he will protect her even if it means that he will have to take a bullet for her.
I loved the action, even if it was short lived, you don’t have time to get bored. There is always something to do, and there is always how the passion between Trace and Skye is being described and that just doesn’t get away. Now Trace has to find Skye’s stalker and make the police believe that she is telling the truth. But a lot of alpha males are getting together and that will make this novella burst out with electricity. Yummy electricity!
I recommend this book to anyone! I a just about to go and buy the next one because I’ve become that obsessed!
