So as numerous reviewers have pointed out the storyline here is weak- but all of Cherry Adair's heroines are these virginal types who go for brutish guys ( with a few exceptions- read Seducing Mr Right) Moving right along- what this book lacks in story it makes up for in the pure Penthouse letters appeal- there is a kinky scene with these Chinese balls in an elevator.... The heroine may start out a virgin but once she begins pursuing her husband and becomes his mistress all bets are off as are their clothes!
This is pure fantasy- it is not about anything more than a fun fluffy journey into never never land for ADULTS.
I read Cherry Adair when I want to be whisked away.... at least her characters are multi-dimensional. I read all these raves about another author who is known for her sexy military books and I don't get those at all....
For more steam your glasses reading from Cherry Adair pick up Seducing Mr Right- it is a cute romance with passion and some fun dialog and her signature STEAM

1.0 out of 5 stars You've got to be kidding me! April 1 2003
By krb
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I can't believe this book is up for a RITA! I have heard mixed reviews on this book. Mostly I hear the word "HOT"! That doesn't tell me much.First, was this book written in the 1970's? Seriously, this book seems so dated and caveman like. Joshua is a throwback to those he-men of past who like to have mistresses and total and complete control. Add to the fact that the story has a preposterous premise and you get one star. I am surprised that so many women were not offended by this masochistic story. Big he-man Josh needs a wife. Enter virginal waitress Jessica. He marries her in a quickie wedding then, he leaves her. He only needs a wife for business/inheritance purposes. He doesn't see Jessie for seven yrs. In that seven yrs. Jess decides she needs a baby, but surprise, she is still a virgin, please!She tracks down Josh. Of course he doesn't remember her, even though they are still married. Do you think he might have checked up on her once during that time? Of course not. He has spent his life making himself rich. He also seems to aquire mistresses but only for twelve months at a time. Can you say "JOHN"? This story is so far out there it is almost comedy. The funniest thing is the author falls back on the old, I was neglected as a child routine which is suppose to explain why Josh is a whiny, overbearing caveman. I find it funny that we as readers are still suppose to believe that Jessie kept herself pure for some reason, oops! guess it was to save herself for Josh because guess what? Jessie is an interior designer, but not really, ya see Jessie really wants Josh's baby. She is a homebody at heart. She is one of those good girls who only wants hearth and home. She also takes tons of verbal abuse from Josh so why she would want him to father her child is beyond me.

4.0 out of 5 stars CInderella Meets her Prince Not Quite Charming Jan. 18 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you were looking for a fantasy romance that is sizzling and provocative, then TAKE ME by Cherry Adair would be your choice. You have to get past the outlandish concept of the story...hero and heroine meet one night and he proposes a marriage of convenience to get what he wants and then split that same night. They meet again years later because of her desire to have a baby with him but he doesn't know it is her. My first question to her would be...Why?
But Ms. Adair has a flair for writing that allows the reader to get past the outlandish concepts and create characters that are endearing and a story that keeps you enthralled from page one to the end. The hero, Joshua, was in my mind a hard hero to like, and I had to wonder at Jessica's motives. How could he not know it was not she? Why did she want a baby with a man she really did not know? But the two sizzle in the love scenes and together they make a couple who have the means to work things out that reach an emotional and satisfying end. Ms Adair has the talent to write books like this.
I would call TAKE ME as a cotton candy type of book and a quick read. A fantasy that could not happen in real life but a story that will keep you glued to it. I know I could not put it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hot Romance by a Hot Author Sept. 9 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Joshua is looking to get married only so he can have control of his family business. Enter Jessie a skinny waitress in a greasy spoon up in the mountains. After the I do's are said Joshua leaves without a backwards glance and takes up where he left off. Jessie is taken in by Joshua's uncle and family to make a better life for herself.
Seven years later Jessie is ready to collect on the favor that Joshua promises to fulfill and that is the wish for a baby. Problem is Joshua is willing to pay to have her impregnated he wants no part in the actual conception. Jessie has other ideas and sets out to seduce Joshua to get her hearts desire. Jessie looks completely different then she did seven years earlier and Joshua has no idea who she is.
Setting out to melt the glacier is not what Jessie had in mind. A quick wham bam thank you sir and she would be on her way. Her plans are foiled by Joshua and his travels and the more time she spends with him the more she likes him. Joshua is harboring a serious hurt and does not trust women. Known for his contracts for his mistresses, and his deep desire never to love he is shocked when he realizes that he has to have Jessie.
Joshua is hard to like but at the same time you are hoping that he opens his heart to the love that is being offered to him. Jessie is so real and likeable you find yourself cheering for her and hoping that she gets everything she wants and more. A fast read you will not be disappointed in this story.
