Take Me for Granted
By: K.A. Linde
Release Date: April 29, 2014
Manwhore. Adrenaline junkie. Lead singer of ContraBand. What you see is what you get. I make no apologies for my actions, and by now no one expects any from me. I live my life the way I want and as long as it pushes the demons back, then I'm solid. I've never needed a chick for more than a good lay. Why would I need just one when I can have a different one every night?
Until she walks into my world.
Mouthy. Perfectionist. Princeton student. Chemistry major. Yes, that pretty much describes me. Oh, and virgin. But I'm only nineteen, and have more important things to concern myself with. What really matters is finishing my degree and getting a good job. I’ve worked hard for what I want, and do what’s expected of me. I don’t need anyone to get in my way.
Until he opens up my world.
But if I give you my world, whatever you do…don’t TAKE ME for granted.

“So, after your phone died earlier today, you didn’t call me back.” Aribel rolled her eyes and picked up her pace, carrying us out across an open field.
“Do you need my number for next time?” She humphed and kept walking. Jesus, what is with this chick? “You don’t take jokes very well, do you?”
“Excuse me, but did I lose a glass slipper or something?” she asked.
“What?” “A glass slipper. Do I look like Cinderella to you? Are you some kind of prince trying to sweep me off my feet? What is this whole charade, Grant?”
“No charade, babe. I just wanted to see you and take you out.”
“Uh-huh. Where exactly are you taking me?” I smirked at her.
“Dinner.” My bed.
“Why do I have a feeling that we’re not talking about eating the same thing?” I chuckled to myself. She had me there.
“Oh, come on. I didn’t even say that.” Though, if I had it my way, I’d be doing more than that tonight.
“You didn’t have to,” she called over her shoulder. I caught up to her again and started walking backward in front of her. I was probably making a spectacle of myself, but I didn’t really care. She didn’t even seem to notice that people were staring at us.
“Look, I really do want to take you out. I’m not one to deny myself the things I want, but I was talking about eating food with you.”
“No. And anyway, how did you know to find me? Are you stalking me or something now? Should I invest in a rape whistle?”
“No, but you can blow my whistle, baby.”
“Oh, dear Lord.”--
This book is for all you rock star lovers out there. This book has everything a good book with rocker hotties should have.
Grant is a cocky, man whore lead singer of a band called Contraband. He is the biggest douche to all women. In other words he is a womanizer. Britney Spear’s song could have been written about him. He is gorgeous I will give him that but damn him and his thinking he is God’s gift to women.
Along with Grant comes his band members, Miller, Vin, and McAvoy. Miller seems to be the head of the group with his head on somewhat straighter than the rest of the group. McAvoy is a stoner. I mean there isn’t much I can say about him besides that. Vin is the loud mouth pain in the ass douche bag that everyone either hates or loves. I am hoping that Mrs. Linde will give us more into their lives. Maybe their own books????
Arible is just as the synopsis describes her. She is mouthy, intelligent, and beautiful. She is very well educated and her family is very well known as social lights. Her parents are uptight and want to mold her into something she is not.
She lives with three girls who are her best friends but are always on her about her life. You will meet Cheyenne who is the social butterfly, I guess you could say, of the group. Then there is Shelby who is vocal but knows when to shut it. Gabi is the shyer one of the group. She is quiet.
Now the two of them together, Grant and Arible, actually complement each other. Although it was a fun ride watching Grant trying to get this smart mouthed girl to be with him. Now both of them do come with their own baggage, his being worse than hers. I can tell you both of their pasts involve parents but his I never saw coming.
I can’t say too much of the story without comepletely giving it away. I do know I need more of Grant and Arible. The way it ended is making me think there may be a sequel.
I am giving this book 4.5 hearts.
