Author: Nina G. Jones

Vesper Rivers was a nursing student on the verge of change. She worked hard towards graduating with a loving boyfriend by her side. She also took the responsibility of taking care of her disabled brother. But her bright future was quickly dimmed as she caught the attention of the wrong man.
Sam was hunter who found his thrill in invading a stranger’s safe place. He was meticulous in his method which helped him blend in the society. Everything changed when he found someone he crave for a different reason and he would do anything to keep his needs sated.
I wasn’t 100% sure what this book was about but very quickly it reminded me of my favorite dark book ever. I was both excited and worried with how it’s going to turn out.
“When you’re fucked up like me—like that—heaven and hell aren’t very different.”
Initially, Sam started out as a creep. And then he graduated to be much more worse than that. But in between, he showed some bits of humanity that helped in understanding his condition.
He likes the taste of my sadness and I like when he injects me with his venom.
Vesper had been questioning about her life more and more everyday even before she became the object of Sam’s obsession. After, she realized how much more she want from it because sometimes the thing she crave could only be satisfied if she took risks.
But I do know one thing: we are both hopelessly bound to the other, holding each other afloat. And if one of us snaps the line or sinks, the other will drown.
I like that this book is dark and depraved. I love studying disturbed characters and the psychology behind their choices. But somehow I feel like this book gave away a little too much – as in, I wasn’t surprised much.
With that said, I like how the author managed to make me cringe on some disturbing scenes. And the evil side in me actually wanted to see those scenes go even further haha!
Take Me With You is a story of obsession that delve into the dark pit of human mind. Proceed if you’re not afraid of questioning morality.
