Peek Inside Make Me, Take Me

When the hottest one-night-stand of her life offers to buy Betsy Mouton's family's bar, she’s understandably uneasy. Hotelier Quinton James hasn’t forgotten how beautifully she submitted to him, or the peace he found in her arms. But now that Betsy is the only thing standing in the way of his new development, she's the one in control. He’ll have to convince her to give him what he wants—and that he belongs in her life—one sensual command at a time.

He’s every fantasy she’s ever had…

Betsy Mouton knows that easy doesn’t last forever. She’s working her butt off to launch the Last Call Café so her family can leave the New Orleans bar business—and its heartaches—behind forever. That is, until the hottest one-night-stand of her life shows up next door, twice as uncompromising and two million times hotter, offering to buy the bar and send the Moutons to Easy Street.

Hotelier Quinton James has never forgotten the unbelievably hot night he and Betsy shared. Never forgotten how beautifully she submitted to him, or how he found the only peace he’s ever known in her arms. Now that Betsy is the only thing standing in the way of his new hotel, she’s the one in control. But there’s more at stake than her cafe or laying their past to rest—Quin wants a future. With her. All he has to do is convince her…one sensual command at a time.

Make Me, Take Me is a clear case of what happens when an author transforms the labor of crafting a story into a true labor of love.
Betsy and Quin's story may be filled with fierce and unchecked passion, but it is a passion that is laced with deep heartfelt pain.
It is this pain that both serves to d ...more

Make Me,Take Me is the third installment in Amanda Usen’s Hot Nights Series. I would have to say she correctly named this series because this is one hot read. I highly suggest you keep a glass of ice chips, or ice water within reach when you read this one.

Amanda Usen is super cute ...more

I couldn't NOT read a book with a main character named Betsy. It's. To very often my namesake is used these days unless in reference to a a cow or a doll that pees her pants. To say that I enjoyed a book when my name was used to describe a bad ass girl making her way in the world is an understatemen ...more

This was a smooth sexy read for me. Betsy and Quinn had that spontaneous combustible chemistry and could not keep their hands off one another. Ms. Usen painted those scenes with very fine intoxicating details. They were on fire. I loved Quinn's character, take charge attitude and huge heart. He real ...more

About the author

Amanda Usen

Amanda Usen knows two things for certain: chocolate cheesecake is good for breakfast, and a hot chef can steal your heart. Her husband stole hers the first day of class at the Culinary Institute of America. They live in Western New York with their three children, one crawfish, two guinea pigs, a tortoise, and a beagle. Amanda spends her days teaching pastry arts classes and her nights writing romance. If she isn't baking or writing, she can usually be found reading a book and trying to get out of cooking dinner.
