Take Down is an intense and quick read about second chances. Two people unknowingly pushed apart by outside sources. Two broken hearts. One took out his anger with his fists. The other took out her anger in the form of lyrics. Neither realized that nothing could hold back the electricity between them, not even a decade.
Gabriel wanted revenge for what had happened to him ten years earlier. He’d earned it and it was time to take what was due. What he hadn’t planned on was his plan backfiring on him. Part of his anger had been misplaced and when he finally realized what was at stake he had to risk losing everything he’d gained in order to make things right.
Karina had her heart broken when she was eighteen and even though later on she suspected he wasn’t completely at fault, the feelings she felt when her world crashed down upon her still wrapped around her. It was those emotions that she poured into her songs, making her the famous singer she was. But she would have traded it all if things could have been different.
Fighting for each other, no matter what, may be what pushes them apart. With a love as intense as Gabriel and Karina’s they’ll want to do any and every thing to protect the other…even from themselves.
My Favorite Moment: The discussion about their third date. Bet Karina didn’t see that one coming!
