About TAKEN WITH YOU:From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a new story in her Fractured Connections series…
It all started at a wedding. Beckham didn’t mean to dance with Meadow. And he really didn’t mean to kiss her. But now, she’s the only thing on his mind. And when it all comes down to it, she’s the only person he can't have.
He'll just have to stay away from her, no matter how hard they’re pulled together.
Running away from her friend's wedding isn't the best way to keep the gossip at bay. But falling for the mysterious and gorgeous bartender at her friends’ bar will only make it worse. Beckham has his secrets, and she refuses to pry.
Once burned, twice kicked down, and never allowed to get up again. Yet taking a chance with him might be the only choice she has. And the only one she wants.
**For fans of Carrie Ann’s Fractured Connections series, Taken With You is book four in that series.**
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Beckham and Meadow have always had an attraction towards one another although they didn't let anyone know about it, they are also both hiding secret pasts. Pasts that come to light in this story and have you understanding why Meadow is the way she is. What threw me was Beckham's past, and I won't spoil anything about saying anymore about it.
I really liked the way things played out and I loved the way Dillon shared his knowledge with Beckham when needed. Dillon need to hurry up and get older so he can get his own HEA!!!!
Beckham and Meadow's FRACTURED CONNECTIONS story is one that I am so glad we were able to get. I love the 1,001 Dark Nights Series for that reason, we get stories we probably wouldn't have gotten otherwise. It gives lovers of the series a book they most likely would never have gotten and it gives new readers a look into the author's series without having to have read any of the previous books because it can be read as a standalone.

Carrie Ann Ryan's books are wickedly funny and deliciously hot, with plenty of twists to keep you guessing. They'll keep you up all night!” USA Today Bestselling Author Cari Quinn
The Connolly brothers were all broad and tall and tattooed and bearded. Even the one that wore suits all the time, Brendon, tended to be a little bit ragged by the time he finished his day and ended up at the brewery with the rest of us.
It still surprised me that I could even see them and not shrink away in fear. Though, in retrospect, I’d probably cowered a bit when I first met them. But, thankfully, no one had commented on it.
Although there was one person that I should probably still keep away from.
And he had just kissed me a few nights ago.
What was wrong with me?
I couldn’t believe I had let him kiss me, that I had kissed him back. I shouldn’t have even danced with him that night.
It had been a horrible mistake. And I couldn’t let it happen again.
I knew exactly what happened when you gave in to your base desires, or when you leaned on someone and let them get close like that.
I rubbed my wrists and looked down, still seeing the bruises that were no longer there. They had faded a few years ago, and they would never be back.
No. I wouldn’t let myself be that vulnerable again.
Though the marks on my skin had faded, they were still on my soul and in my heart.
I could feel them beneath my flesh as if each ache from the blows had touched my very being.
The scars were still there, evidence of my mistakes, of the person I had been and who I’d trusted when I shouldn’t have.
I wouldn’t—couldn’t—let Beckham kiss me again.
Actually, I would do everything in my power to never be alone with him again.
I’d already made one mistake.
I didn’t know if I could afford another.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.
Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
