Blog Tour: Review and Excerpt of His to Take by Katee Robert

Author: Katee Robert
Publisher: Entangles Brazen
Date of publication: December 2015

Erin Robinson is having an epically bad year. Her blossoming career on Broadway tanked, forcing her to crawl back to home to Wellington. The icing on her failure cake? Her former on-again, off-again fling is in town, and the sexy Marine is taking up way too much space.

Warren Davis always knew Erin was special, which is exactly why he can’t have her. A girl like her deserves something permanent—something neither of them wants. But now that they’re both back in town and she’s right there in front of him, a challenge in her eyes he’s never been able to resist, he’s questioning everything.

That challenge quickly escalates into an epic game of Truth or Dare. Erin’s sure she’s got him on lock, but as the night progresses, Warren’s dares intensify, drowning her in lust. But with the past still breathing down their necks, there’s no way either of them can win...

His to Take is a quick novella ending the Out of Uniform Series.  I have not had the pleasure of reading any of the other books, but I felt like this one was fine as a stand alone book.  Erin has moved back home having failed to make a life in New York City.  She is not happy about the situation and wants to leave as soon as she can.  Warren is home for the holidays.  He has 4 months left in the Marines then he plans to make Wellington his home again.

did like these two together.  I felt like their history if growing up with each other and their once a year hook-ups gave them a sense of ease with each other. I loved the Truth or Dare game that they played.  It was pretty intense. However, I felt like just reading about one night with them wasn't enough for me to get to know them.  I would have liked for their story to be longer.  I did like the ending though, it fit the story well!

After reading His to Take, I am now interested in reading the rest of the series.  I have included purchase links for those books below.  Make sure to check them out!


“You haven’t even heard what I’m proposing.”
“I don’t have to. I know you. And as great as an hour of hot sweaty sex would be, I’m not in the mood.”
That, more than anything else, confirmed there was something wrong. He tamped down the urge to ask what it was. They weren’t that kind of friends. Not yet. They were two people who’d hooked up a handful of times in the last six years. That was it.
That was what he was trying to change.
So he nudged her shoulder, hating that the winter made so many layers necessary. It was only his imagination making him think he could feel the heat of her body through her coat from that tiny touch. “Truth or dare, Freckles?”
Her jaw dropped. “You’re joking.”
“We haven’t done it in years.” Not since the night they met.
“Right. Because we’re grown-ass adults, and truth or dare is for kids.”
He watched the memories reflected in her hazel eyes. Truth or dare was how they’d gotten started in the first place. They’d been with a group of friends down at Mill Creek and someone had suggested the game. It had been a wild night of the kind of trouble only teenagers could get into, and it had culminated out in the middle of the creek where another of their friends dared Erin to kiss Warren.
And, holy fuck, had she kissed him.
