Blog Stop - Take it All by Emma Grayson

Take It All
by Emma Grayson

***Inspired by true events***
Judy Garland said it best, ‘For it was not into my ear you whispered but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed but my soul.’
If you asked her why she loved him, she would only be able to tell you it was because he was who he was and well, she was who she was.
Plain and simple.
All her life Lennox Ward felt incomplete. That her heart was always searching for that one special thing; that special someone she had yet to find.
Then Caleb Kingston came strolling back into her life unexpectedly, and little did she know her world was about to come crashing down around her; forever shattering it.
Is love enough to conquer all?
Will she be able to lead them out of hell and off their path of self destruction?
Or will Caleb take it all?
*This book contains mature subject matter and is not intended for those under 17 years of age.*

My Review

"I love you" - Lennox 
"I love you too, baby, so damn much,"- Caleb
Emma Grayson wrote Take It All based on true life events, and let me just say that I believe it gave it an extra added depth to the book and let you connect to the characters and their story more thoroughly.

Love doesn’t begin or end the way we think it does. It’s more than butterflies fluttering in your stomach when your eyes meet for the first time. It’s more than a spark you feel when your lips touch, igniting your flesh with a flame that licks your body; the feeling forever locked in your depths of your heart and soul.
It’s a battle; a war.  It’s growing up. And sometimes it’s completely toxic.

This book shows that once you find someone you love it’s not all a happy ever after, but even though you found love a relationship takes work and there are so many other issues in the real life that can affect that.
Lennox is a girl that had a deal breaker for any relationship she entered, one thing she would not tolerate! But what happens when she falls for the one guy that goes against everything she believes in? Will she stay, or is it too much for her?

... deep down she knew it was, and that she would have stayed with him regardless of the standards she had when it came to drug use.

I loved reading this book and feeling the emotions that Caleb and Lennox went through. The book was all in Lennox’s P.O.V but the author still conveyed Caleb’s character emotionally.
The only negative I have about the book is that it ends on a semi cliffhanger and I can’t wait for the next book Promise it All to see the ending of Caleb and Lennox’s story.

Amazing work Emma!
