One text can change everything.
Honor Calhoun never thought her life would ever be like the books she writes for a living. One morning while out for a run, she learns not all bad things are plots in novels. Some horrors can actually come true.
She faces off with a persistent attacker, holds her own, but in the end is taken hostage and thrown into a hole. In the middle of the woods.
But Honor didn’t go down there alone.
She took her kidnapper’s phone with her. With a spotty signal and a dying battery, her hope is slim.
Nathan Reed is an active duty Marine stationed at a small reserve base in Pennsylvania. All he wants is a calm and uneventful duty station where he can forget the memories of his time in a war-torn country.
But a single text changes everything.
Nathan becomes Honor’s only hope for survival, and he has to go against the clock, push aside his past, and take on a mission for a girl he’s never met.
Both of them want freedom… but they have to survive long enough to obtain it.

Kim's ReviewWhat an AWESOME story! I do believe that out of all the Take It Off books thus far, this one is my favorite!
Its starts out with Honor, jogging on the trails enjoying the beauty that nature has to offer in Pennsylvania, and then the unthinkable happens. She is attacked, kidnap, and thrown into a hole. Honor has one thing that can possibly save her life. The attacker’s cell phone. She manages to send out a text, and it’s just so happened to go to the phone of Nathan, the hottie Marine, who sets out try and save her life.
Nathan has a past of his own that brings about heart wrenching moments because he was at war, which causes him pain, on a daily basis, that hopefully he can work on start overcoming with the help of Honor. This two are good together and certainly pick each other up when down and are protective of each other. Plus, there is this love of apple pie J This story, by the amazing Cambria Hebert, has everything in it and it is perfectly wrapped up and tied with a bow. It has action, suspense, romance, and some steamy scenes that are sure to leave you in need of a cold shower. Ms. Hebert is one of my favorite authors and I will anxiously anticipate each new book that she comes out with because they are superb.

Teaser:Nathan flashed a grin in the darkness. I longed to see him in the light. I wanted to know the angles and planes of his face. I wanted to take in his features and truly see the man who had literally saved my life. Nathan seemed oblivious to my thoughts as I watched him tidy up the first aid kit. Before he put it on the floor, he glanced at me. “Where else are you hurt?” “I won’t be requiring any more Band-Aids,” I quipped. He turned to look at me fully. His hand closed over mine and he gently took the flashlight from my grasp and clicked it off. “What about your ribs?” “I don’t think you have anything in that kit for them.” “Let me see them.” “Wh-what?” My mouth ran dry. He wanted to look under my shirt? “I want to see them.” “That’s not really necessary—” He studied me and then thrust his hand out in the space between us. “Hey, I’m Nathan Reed. It’s nice to meet you.” I wanted to laugh. We were a little beyond a formal introduction. But it was fun (hey, you try being kidnapped and beaten and see what you consider fun), so I slid my hand into his. “I’m Honor.” He held my hand a little longer than he needed to, his thumb brushing over the inside of my wrist. I caught myself right before I started purring like a cat. That would have been hella embarrassing. “I’m a Staff Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. My favorite color is green, and I like football.” “What are you doing?” I asked, thoroughly charmed by him. “Formally introducing myself so you’ll let me under your shirt.” I laughed. “I usually don’t let men I just met under my shirt.” “I’m irresistible.” I smiled. “And so modest.”
