TAKE ON ME by Cherrie Lynn

TAKE ON ME by Cherrie LynnThe Ross siblings are simply irresistible – so I was anxious to see how Ms. Lynn would develop a story for Brian and Evan’s older sister. Gabby Ross is a nurse turned medical student. She’s engaged to a well-respected cardiologist, and her life is going according to plan … until she get’s left at the altar. After months of soothing her bruised ego, Gabby elects to make a statement in a big way when she visits Brian’s tattoo parlor. She knows what she needs … a pair of wings. When Brian refuses to ink his sister’s back, Ian Rhodes steps in to complete the job. The attraction between the two is undeniable. What begins as a simple agreement to address their physical needs results in news that could derail all of Gabby’s plans. I love the romance level of this story.  And I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the pairing of an older woman with a younger guy!  It’s about time! The plot was a bit predictable, but dialogue carries the story along quite well. Unfortunately, Ian’s character was not developed fully – nowhere near the strength behind Brian or Ghost. I loved having the strong Ross family dynamics as part of the background stories. I loved the side-stories of Gabby and Kelsey’s friendship, and the happy Candace and Brian news! I did not like Gabby’s mother, and am a bit confused. In previous books, she always seemed supportive of Brian and all his choices. Why was she written as such a judgmental parent in this story? I loved the talk Ian had with Gabby’s parent near the end of the book. That alone lifted this review to FOUR HEARTS!!
