Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In the latest kicky romance from Esdaile (Keepin' It Real), Philadelphia CPA Karin Michaels does a 180 for love when her firm lands an account with hunky rap star Jacques Bernard "J.B." Dubois. At J.B.'s insistence, Karin plans to fly to his Caribbean home to examine his books and determine the extent of his tax difficulties. When her boss decides to send another accountant to handle J.B., Karin makes an uncharacteristically bold move: she ignores her boss's wishes and accepts J.B.'s offer to fly her out on his private jet, ostensibly to make sure the "skittish client" doesn't bolt. Once she gets to St. Lucia, however, this conscientious accountant abandons her job almost entirely to engage in a heated affair with the rap giant. The relationship that develops between this unlikely pair is unique and engaging, and the author's rich descriptions of St. Lucia add an extra dimension of sensuality to the tryst. Karin's impulsive decision to ditch her duties and run off with a celebrity doesn't ever quite jibe with her serious, career-minded persona, but those with a sturdy suspension of disbelief should find a lot to like in this sunny, sexy romp. (Oct.)

Sexy, Exciting, and a Great Read!! Oct. 26 2006
By T. Brown-Gary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. The main characters were made for each other. From the very beginning I was rooting for them. Karin was just a CPA who had a boring life, boring job and boring boyfriend. Until she learns the bosses want her to woo the famous JB Dubois into signing with their company. Karin starts to realize how much of an asset she is to her superiors. JB sees the realness in Karin and realizes he has to have her review his finances which are in such disarray because he literally gives money away to his friends and family because of the poverty he sees in his home Island. From the moment the two meet, sparks fly high! I have read Ms. Esdaile's novels before, but this is my favorite so far. Once the two realize they are made for each other, the senuality drips off the pages and You cannot help but to feel the heat! I need to book a trip to St. Lucia and find my "JB"!!!!!

I would have given it 9 stars! April 29 2007

Here I go again. I just wrote a review for 'Sister Got Game' by this amazing, Philly author. I didn't think 'Chick-Lit' writing could get any better and Leslie has done it again and raised the bar. I love everything about her books and 'Take Me There' did not disappoint. I wanted to fly to Saint Lucia tomorrow! Reading this book made me want to find my own true love and take the chance on love again. I am a fan for life!!
Take Me There, took me there... March 9 2009

How vividly does a painted gray sky-scrape, long sulking faces, and the co-worker with the nae to every yae wisps a reader like me through an opening chapter, forgetting that I was even reading romance. I didn't realize what I was reading until I got to the end and actually turned the book over to read the back excerpt. All I knew, I was engaged from the opening... painting a mood I know all too well, to Karin & Lloyd... and good Lord if that exchange at the concert between her & Lloyd didn't tickle me... to the dialogue between her and her mother... where Karin of course set her straight too... to the very end caught up around Karin and the luv.

I've never come across a romance read as short, wrapping up as smooth, and coming across so believable! It had to be that opening, Esdaile speaking a language I know all too well (...raggedy as a bowl of yock - LOL)!

What else can I say but what a tease... wheeling readers in and spitting them out before they know it! The perfect beach read.
Take Me There Oct. 16 2007

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Before facing the IRS, Jacques (JB) Dubois, CEO of Def Island needs financial help quick. The accounting firm that is trying to get his account assigns CPA Karin Michaels to work with him until the boss gets over his sickness or another top staffer can take over. Although, Karin is fascinated with the singer, she is also looking out for his business.

Karin is invited to Jacque's concert while in Philadelphia and takes her "stuck up" doctor boyfriend, Lloyd. This is a fun read as Karin enjoys herself at the concert.

Karin has to travel to Jacques home in St. Lucia to look over his books and this is where she better understands his lifestyle while their attraction for one another truly surfaces especially with the sly help of Jacques housekeeper, Mrs. Orville.

This was an enjoyable story and one that you have to keep reading until finished.
Absolutely Wonderful! Nov. 17 2009

This is the second book that I've read by Leslie and I have to say that I absolutely loved it! I was a little leery about reading any of her other books after Sister Got Game for fear of being disappointed. This book was just as good as that book and I'm so glad that I gave it a chance. I loved the characters especially Karin. I was so happy when she kicked her doctor boyfriend to the curb. The story was well written and it had an excellent plot. The characters were well developed and the story flowed really well. I especially liked the fact that there weren't any editing issues. I enjoyed this story so much so I highly recommend it to those who have yet to read it. It's been out a while but who cares lol. You'll be disappointed when you come to the last page....it's that good!
