Summer is over, but just because the temperature is dropping, doesn't mean we have to stop reading scorching hot books! Frisky Fall Saturdays is our new weekly post created by The Autumn Review, The Bookish Babe, Hackaroo's Reviews, and Sim-Sational-Books. Feel free to join in. (let us know so we can add a link to your post) As those leaves start piling up in the yard, ignore them and pick up a sexy book!

**The books featured on FRISKY FALL SATURDAYS are for adults. If you are under 18 years of age, or do not like smexy books, please stop here. **

Check out the GIVEAWAY at the end of my review.
Take Me (One Night with Sole Regret, #3)She is one woman he should never touch…

Sole Regret’s enigmatic vocalist, Jacob “Shade” Silverton, is a consummate womanizer, but even he knows better than to get involved with one special woman from his past. Mixing friendship and pleasure can only lead to a broken heart, and he’s suffered enough heartache to swear off relationships for a lifetime.

He is one man she has always desired…

Amanda Lange knows all about Shade’s naughty reputation, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting to dive into the gorgeous rock star’s arms and into his bed. She convinces herself that one night of passion won’t complicate their friendship, but can she convince him of that?

They’re both playing with fire.

Neither of them realized how far one kiss would take them. As the flames of their passion ignite with the intensity of an inferno, will either of them escape the experience without being burned or will both be branded fool enough to take a chance on a relationship that was marked for ruin before it even began?

So....if you know me, you know that I am a huge fan of Olivia Cunning. Like, daily blog-reading (or, stalking), buy her books months in advance, or the very moment they're released, and shout-from-the-rooftops-how-much-I-love-them, kind of fan. And every time Cunning releases a new book, whether it be Sinners or Sole Regret, I'm convinced that I couldn't possibly love her books more. I love that she proves me wrong every single time.

Shade Silverton. UNFF <--- That was the sound of my ovaries combusting. Based on his time in Try Me and Tempt Me, Shade seems like the jerk of Sole Regret. Much like Sed Lionheart of Sinners, Shade is abrasive, blunt, egotistical, control freak. Also like his "book brother" (what?! does that even make sense?) Shade has a side that only those closest to him ever witness. Shade's soft spot is something that took me by surprise, and had me melting for him from the start.

Speaking of melting...Shade is ONE SEXY MOTHER. I love the good guys like Gabe, Adam, and Brian, but god help me, I love a man who comes off as an ass and knows how to take control. Shade knows his way around a stage in concert and a stage in the bedroom. Seriously. Just... I can't even get started with what the man does to me in this book.

Alright, I suppose I've objectified Shade enough, for now. He has some issues, but honestly, is a good-hearted guy. He wants to do right for those around him, the ones he's hurt and neglected. He even has issues with his own self-esteem! And it's not a superficial gimmick to gain sympathy. Cunning built Shade into a strong character with a surprising amount of depth. I would be hard-pressed (heh) to say that Shade isn't my new favorite member of Sole Regret.

That's not to say that I don't hardcore love those other guys, I still do! Which reminds me, you guys are not going to want to miss Gabe and Adam in Take Me!!! I was so, so, so happy they showed up. Gabe's scenes were giggle-inducing, playing off his "gadgets" in Try Me, and boy oh boy, does he have something big in store for Melanie!!! (Lucky girl) Adam's scenes were very eye-opening, and provided a strong emotional moment, and some answers, to the animosity.

Take Me was everything I've come to know and love about Olivia Cunning's work. This story has a sexy as sin Rocker, a girl so sweet and cool that I can't even hate her, and some of the juiciest (lol) sex scenes that I have had the pleasure (<--- understatement) of reading. Take Me is, in my opinion, the best of the One Night with Sole Regret series thus far. At least, until Touch Me comes out.

Favorite Quote:

  "She tore her appreciative gaze from Jacob's body and peered into his eyes. She did know why he always wore sunglasses. He had expressive eyes that quickly made a person realize that he wasn't the heartless, narcissistic son of a bitch he pretended to be. And that's why she wanted him. Not because he was the most eyegasmic man ever to walk the earth, but because he felt. Deeply. And those pretty blue eyes of his revealed everything he tried to hide."  (17%)

  "Amanda probably thought he was the biggest man-whore on the planet. And maybe he was a contender for the top ten p*ssy chasers of all time, but he didn't think with his d!ck. He just liked to keep it happy by giving it what it wanted."   (30%)

  "Not nice to joke about things like that, Mr. Silverton. My vagina has just found a new best friend. Don't give her false hope that she's going to get to hang out with him all summer when you know damned well she'll be flying solo."  (51%)

  "Amanda's heart thudded out of control. She felt exposed. Hunted. Catch me, Shade. Devour me."  (70%)
