No Take Backs: A Taken Novella (Give & Take, #1.5)



There was something I didn’t know.Something that would change everything.The grand opening of Turtle Tear Resort is a time for celebration, but the man Rachael loves more than anything is suffering in silence. Rocha Enterprises was Merrick’s life. Now, he’s been left with no choice but to sell off the business he built from the ground up, and Rachael’s hell-bent on finding out why.I love you too much not to fight to get it back.

Even if you’ve given up.

“You’re hurting me, Rachael…You’re going to him…I can’t promise I’ll be here when you get back.”

My heart bleeds as you stride away from me. Last night you told me you love me, now you’re walking away because I’m fighting for you.

Rachael can forgive and forget the past, but can Merrick overcome her betrayal?

The wait for Taken by Storm is going to be downright painful after this! Kelli once again gives us the intense, pulse-pounding sexiness we saw in the first book of the series, but with a different feel now that Rachael and Merrick have moved past their rocky start and are fully invested in each other. I love these two together despite how messed up they began their relationship, and the passion between them is written to perfection!
Now this is where things start to get really interesting! Rachael is now in Turtle Tear Island overseeing the hotel renovations… and Merrick Rocha’s heart. In the first novel. Taken, Merrick shared pieces of his past, his tumultuous relationship with his father, the burdens of being a billionaire and one defining moment in his past that made all the difference in his life. 
Just when it looks like the storm has passed, though, someone from Merrick’s past may be the undoing of the life that they envision together. Rachael is determined to give Merrick everything she knows he wants in life, even if he’s given up and won’t accept that she needs to betray him to fix it. This novella moved quickly from steamy romance to huge revelations and heartbreaking separation, and with a cliffhanger ending it’s going to be tortured until we find out what happens next for these characters!!
