Taken by Tuesday by Catherine Bybee & GIVEAWAY

The Weekday Brides #5                                                                                 
Published Date August 12, 2014 by Montlake Romance

Judy Gardner has graduated from college and is heading to LA to start her career as an architect.  Judy and her best friend, Meg, are staying at Judy’s brother’s mansion with constant security in place.  Part of that security is Rick Evans, the man that sparks flew from when Judy met him a year ago.    As they are thrown together in their everyday life the sparks fly.   When Judy is attacked, Rick knows that nothing will stop him from keeping Judy safe.

My Thoughts:

Have you ever finished a book and wanted to know more about the characters?   What happens after they book ends?   That is exactly how I felt about this book.   I felt a connection to Judy and Rick, I was invested in their future, and I want to know what happens next in their life.    Luckily there are more books to come in this series and these characters are sure to make an appearance.  

The chemistry in Taken by Tuesday is absolutely steamy.   The fact that the sparks have been bubbling between Judy and Rick for almost a year and that they had stayed away from each other, due to circumstances, made the sparks when they were finally in the same city so much hotter and brighter.   I loved how strong Judy was when faced with being attacked, she took an active role in keeping herself safe and in finding the person who attacked her.   She also knew when to argue with Rick and when to step back and let him do what he was trained to do, protect her.   Even when Rick was in protective mode you could feel the heat and attraction. 

I have read this entire series and loved each and every one of them.    I recommend reading them in order, but each can be a standalone book.   Catherine Bybee is an author that has never let me down.  I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
