I’m very lucky to be able to share an excerpt from Take Me On:
Excerpt from West’s Point of View
Abby from Crash Into You enters West’s life as a weird guardian angel
Abby’s tennis shoes crunch against the crumbling blacktop and halt at my feet. “Your choice—home, hospital or a place to lay low until you’re ready for one of the first two options. The prize behind curtain C comes with a shower and a change of clothes.”
I dismiss my original answer of no when I notice the blood on my shirt. I can’t go home or to the hospital like this. I can’t do that to my mother.
Using the bumper of my car, I struggle up and hobble to the passenger side as I eye Abby sliding into the driver’s seat. I’m slow getting in, but I’ll be damned if I ask for help.
The interior light dims when I shut the door. Abby fastens her seat belt and wraps her fingers around the steering wheel. “I don’t have my driver’s license.”
“Can you drive?”
That didn’t sound reassuring. “Just go.”
She doesn’t. “You should buy goldfish.”
“For your car. Like build a tank in between your front and back seats. It’d be different and I like different.”
If it will get me to a shower faster…“Okay.”
She smiles. “Really?”
Abby shifts the car into gear. “And, West?”
I roll my head to look at her.
“I know your mother’s secret.”

From Noah’s Point of View
I love how Echo molds her body around mine: head on my shoulder, her hair teasing my neck, her arms winding around my chest. I hug her and revel in her warmth.
