The fourth standalone in the internationally bestselling BOSTON LOVE STORY series is finally here...

Delilah Sinclair has a certain reputation.

Maybe it's the way she walks (in skyscraper designer heels) or the way she talks (in total absence of a filter) or simply the shade of her hair (strawberry blonde). Maybe it's the string of broken hearts she's left across the city of Boston. (Sorry, boys.)

For Lila, catching a man's attention is never a struggle. It's the part that comes later – the happily-ever-after part – that always seems to trip her up. All her friends may be settling down, but this fiery redhead has no intentions of ever being tamed…

Until she meets a man just as wild.

Luca "Blaze" Buchanan is the best fighter to come out of Boston in years. Men want to be him, women want to be with him, and no one smart ever bets against him. He's more savage than knight-in-shining-armor, but that suits him just fine: he has no plans to ever allow a woman to domesticate him.

That is, until a certain sultry redhead finds herself in need of salvation. In the midst of sudden danger, their slow-burning attraction sparks into something far hotter… an inferno neither of them knows how to put out.

One thing is indisputable: no one is walking away without getting singed...

** TAKE YOUR TIME is a full-length contemporary romance about a girl determined not to settle… and the alpha who tears her careful plans into pieces. It is the fourth installment of the internationally bestselling BOSTON LOVE STORY series and can be read as a complete standalone. Due to sexy scenes, a sassy, red-headed heroine, and a bossy, unbearably sexy hero, it is recommended for readers ages 17 and up. **

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Julie Johnson grabbed me from the beginning Take Your Time; hook, line and sinker!

“Who the hell gets arrested looking like Plumette?”

Once again her writing is beautiful and flawless. Julie has a way evoking such emotion in her story, that you physically feel her characters in your bones. What I love the most about her romantic comedies is that they don’t follow the standard formula. These stories encompass so much more and will leave you with a smile on your face.

“There is a newfound tenderness in the way he touches me, a novel desperation in the way his lips slide over my skin – as if he’s afraid I will disappear at any moment.”

Luca stole my heart, ripped it right of my chest and took it as his own. I swear Luca is what dreams are made of, a gentle giant who will do anything to protect those he cares about. He is the perfect match to Delilah, even if she wants to constantly fight the magnetic pull he has over her.

Delilah is so stubborn and hard head, she has embraced all of the ginger stereotypes and has allowed everyone to believe that is who she truly is. She has built up such a strong wall to keep everyone out and protect her heart. After meeting Luca, we knew he would have no problem pummeling those walls.

“I’m sure some people looking at him saw a savage. A monster. But me? I saw sheer beauty in that ring.”

    Once upon a time I thought I’d fall in love with one guy and he’d be tall and handsome and we’d go on a honeymoon and he’d carry me into our hotel room up in some snowy mountains, and it’d be my very own fairy tale.

    Now I’m in love with a bunch of fictional characters and I hold all my past, present, and future dates up to their standards. What would Kade do? What would Ryan Pierce do? What would Luca Buchanan do?

    These are the men my dreams are made of… And these authors… Tiffany Snow, Lily Kate, Julie Johnson… They breathe life into these men!!! And when I finish the books, my heart is happy because I know “happily ever after” does exist. But my heart is also sad because it’s not my happily ever after. Guess I’ll just have to find another book to sweep me off my feet!
