This is my first read by Leddy Harper and I really enjoyed it, it will tug at you heart strings and you'll find yourself desperate to turn the page to see what's going to happen next.
Christmas is Sarah Campbell's favorite time of the year that is until tragedy strikes her family. She's finding it hard to cope and Saturday nights are her escape wanting to just lose herself to someone - anyone just to be able to forget even if it's just for a few hours, that is until Bentley Cole takes a seat beside her at the bar.
Bentley Cole knows more than most about broken hearts and takes one look at Sarah and can see the desperation and sorrow she carries and he's determined to help heal her.
Fate and Circumstance bring them together but could it also tear them apart.
This is book 2 in the Fate and Circumstance series but it can be read as a standalone.

For those of you who have read Falling to Pieces, you met Sarah Campbell. She is the oldest, the happiest go luckiest of the Campbell girls, until tragedy hits her and the family on Christmas day, her favorite holiday of the year. Moving five months after losing her mother, Sarah has pushed her family and friends away, except Saturday nights. Saturdays, she becomes someone else, she seeks a warm body for the night and returns to her home to wallow in self pity. That is until she meets a new stranger, Bentley. Something about Bentley that makes Sarah open up about her pain and loss. Yet, he’s not one to give into her ways of coping which is always sex. Bentley makes her think about the things that she’s pushed aside for five months.
“You believe in fate?” … “What about circumstance? Do you believe in that?” … “Let’s just say fate put us together. It’s destiny that we end up in love, living our happily ever after together. Circumstance is what either gets us there or holds us back.” Remember those words when you read this book. Was it fate or circumstance that brought Bentley into Sarah’s life? Once you get how or why Bentley is in Sarah’s life, you will have to WTF moment. I wasn’t sure where Leddy was taking me with her words, all I know is that my heart was racing and I did not want to put my IPad down. My anxiety level was through the roof. I got everything that I wanted from a book, plot, story line, angst and a love story. You will fall in love with Bentley and his words. My heart really did break for Sarah, but she was a lot stronger than she thought she was.
Leddy Harper did not disappoint with Take Your Time. I look forward to adding more of her books to my ever growing TBR, I just have to remember to take anti-anxiety meds, just kidding. I am looking forward to Luke’s book in the Summer.
Bentley is a gentleman that sees a broken woman but not expecting to see her shattered. Bentley was the first man Sarah found herself diverging answers to. Her indifference about her choices in life came to halt with Bentley's lectures about safety proved more powerful than she realized. Sarah came to a bar looking for a hook up and left with a new outlook on life.
Leddy has a natural ability at writing about depressed women needing a strong man who loves hard enough to bring light into a woman's dark soul. I am guilty of being a biased reader and a fan of Leddy Harper's work. I'm not sorry to have discovered such an amazing author who illustrates emotions in the form of words because she gifts me with her touching stories. Every time I pick up one of her stories I know the journey is going to be spectacular. I am a sucker for an emotional charged story and Leddy gives me what I desire. Leddy is the Adele of a writer.
The key to receiving a 5⭐️review from me is the ability for the author to create a story that resonates for days. I like the story to have an impact on my life and make me question life. I enjoy the way other people perceive emotions through their writing style. I search for stories that attach itself and get embedded in my mind by bringing out emotions from deep within.
Leddy's tells a compelling story. A convincing story. Both sides showing such compassion for how the other felt. Leddy's gives you all possible scenarios and angles. Like playing " the devils advocate". Leddy roped me in. Leddy's had me believing this story was about Sarah's grief over losing her mother than turned the tables on the storyline. I was hit with a new unexpected shock that took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes.
Sarah thought her life was over when she lost the person closest to her. She would push everyone else away and hide away in her own world. Except on Saturdays. On Saturdays she would go to a bar and hook up with a random guy for one night. That was her life. Until one Saturday when she looks over her shoulder to see the most gorgeous man she has ever seen. Bentley has his own reasons for being at that bar, but when he sees Sarah, and the sadness in her eyes, he decides he has to help her. He slowly gets her to open up about her life and the tragedy that happened to her family. When a secret comes out about Bentley, will Sarah understand the fate and circumstance that led things to happen, or will she run away and try to deal with it on her own? Can she forgive Bentley, and realize her fate, before it's too late? As Sarah deals with the grief from the tragedy, is it really Bentley who saves her, or do they save each other?
This is definitely one of my favorites by Leddy Harper, and you can be sure I will be recommending it!
I absolutely loved the first book written by Leddy, Falling to Pieces and this one made me fall even harder. The characters were such beautiful people to read about.
Sarah and Bentley made me want to be living in their story. Yes, they faced some very tough times and had some rough patches, but their story is just beautiful.
The plot line had me wanting to keep reading and dive deeper and deeper into these characters storyline.
I highly recommend reading this book as well as Falling to Pieces. These books will leave you swooning.
