She was off-limits…until now.
Marine Jeremy Addison is lost in the desert outside of Vegas. He’s brutally hungover, bruised and bloodied, and dehydrated as hell. Must’ve been a helluva night. The silver sports car that pulls over should have been his salvation. Insead, it’s Erica Jones—his ex-best friend’s sister…and the girl who broke Jeremy’s heart seven years ago.
While she wants to help Jeremy—and okay, maybe run her hands and tongue along the hard, muscled planes of his body—Erica’s wary of getting too close. Giving in to her libido is a bad idea. After all, she’s no longer the girl Jeremy once knew. Unfortunately, Erica never could hide herself from Jeremy, and this time around, she’s ready to try him…even if it’s the biggest gamble of her life.
Previously released on the Ever After imprint in May 2012.

Great, terrific, wonderful, lovely, thoughtful, heart-felt and just so good.

I’m not going to play innocent here—it was the cover! It lured me right in to this story with a grin on my face and a sparkle in my eye. Drool, drool! :) But Try Me by Diane Alberts proved to be much more than a hot cover.
On leave in Vegas, Jeremy ends up in the middle of the desert, beat up and... ...more

Try Me Review on K-Books
"It's about helping the person you love when they need a hand to stand straight. Love is about never giving up on the person you care about."
Well we had the lady herself on the blog a few days ago and here I am again gushing about another one of Diane's books. Ever since... ...more
I read this all in one sitting, and stayed up to 1:30 a.m. to finish it! I loved the hero, Jeremy, completely. A boy from the wrong side of the tracks and from the worst possible family background who feels he's not good enough for the women he's loved since childhood, a woman who now has secrets... ...more
5 Stars for the HOT ASS COVER!(You KNOW how I am about book covers - picky-picky!!!)
5 Stars for the awesome characters and touching story!
I LOVED this one! Another short/quick read, but this one really packed an emotional punch, which is impressive given the length of the story. I just fell in lo... ...more
That was an awesomely good story! It was a really quick read, but never had a slow moment. Jeremy was incredibly sexy. He was so sweet and kind, I just wanted to eat him up. ;-) I must say, I really like this cover. So hot! :-) Laura, thank you for telling me about this book. ...more
Try Me (Take a Chance, #1) by Diane Albert’s
Reading Try Me by Diane Albert’s has lead me to go find out if she has written more books, I enjoyed this story it is a fast read and quite enjoyable. Oh and did I mention a sexy looking Marine.

Everyone is in awe and lust with this cover, so when I tell you that the story is even better than the cover you can imagine it will be extraordinary! Diane Alberts wowed me with Try Me, and I was amazed at what a beautifully round and well developed romance and characters she gave in such a shor... ...more
Entangled has done it again!Diane Alberts has created a great romance with a mixture of sadness and denial but in the end there is a Happily Ever After to DIE for! I have not really read a lot of adult books lately but Entangled has brought home so many hard hitters it is hard for me to ignore th... ...more
Entangled Publishing has completely changed my opinion about novellas. They really are perfect for when you're looking for a quick read, especially if it's romance.
A few weeks ago, I read Divinely Ruined by Diane Alberts. It was the first book that I had read that was written by Diane and I abso... ...more
Try Me was an wonderful and captivating love story. Young and in love Erica and Jeremy both made mistakes. Confident that their futures will never be together; they have lived the past eight years trying to move forward. Even though this is proving harder than anticipated; neither of them though.... ...more
What a great emotional story this was! Read it in one sitting because i really wanted no needed to know what was going to happen.. Too bad it wasn't longer :(
Totally loved our 'bad'boy Jeremy, he's just so honest, genuine, loving and caring. A true hero in every sense of the word .. lol ..
This was a good steamy short read.

Quick, fast paced, emotional, and sexy, Diane Alberts's Try Me touches all the right notes and leaves you sighing with the happily ever after. Every woman should have a Jeremy in their life :) ...more
I have definitely been on a bit of a contemporary romance kick recently and Try Me hit the spot perfectly. I have to confess I was drawn to this one for the cover (well who could resist muscles like those?) but the blurb sounded good too so I jumped at the chance of reading it. I've been burnt be... ...more
This was yet another fantastic short novel by Diane Alberts! Her ability to put so much emotion into a book that takes only an hour or two to read is impeccable.
Jeremy is a wounded soul. His father was an abusive alcoholic who committed murder and Jeremy was tagged as the boy on the wrong side of... ...more
That's my opinion on the ebook novella--though, really, Jeremy at one point cooks her breakfast shirtless... I'm just saying. Hot abs. Cooking Bacon. Then, the dog tags. That's the trifecta, ladies. There's nowhere to go from there.
As for the rest of it, this was Diane Albert's best book yet, and... ...more
