Blog Tour Giveaway & Review of New Release | Take Me For Granted by K.A. Linde

Title: Take Me for Granted
Author: K.A. Linde
Release Date: April 29, 2014
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

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.”--

He is not your typical rocker. He does have a mind of his own and a past that is deadly. His future? Undetermined until he met Aribel. Grant is a man whore and proud of it. He has no time or inclination to pursue a girl beyond a one-night-stand.

Aribel on the other hand is a straight A student. Calculus, Organic Chemistry.... they are no challenge to her. She is smart, beautiful, still a virgin and proud of it. She has yet to meet a man that entices her enough until she met Grant.

Talk about opposites. In the unique style the identifies K.A. Linde's books, she has given us here a contemporary romance that is cohesive, well written, and full of mystery and passion. I absolutely fell in love with these characters. Grant and Aribel end up growing up and connecting in a way that is truly heartfelt. This is only Book #1 in this series. I will be on the lookout for book #2. This story keeps getting more and more interesting!
