Mine to Take is a romantic thriller. It’s about Skye Sullivan and Trace Weston and their intricately entwined complicated lives. Skye Sullivan is a Prima Ballerina in New York City until her career is cut short because of a horrific accident which causes her to flee back to Chicago. In Chicago, Skye turns to Trace Weston, a man she first met when she was 15 and who was once her entire world. When she knew Trace he was young, penniless and everything she ever wanted. But Trace forced her out of his life. He joined the military and for ten years he’s been building his security company making him one of the richest men in the world. Skye believes she’s in danger so she turns to Trace despite the fact that he doesn’t want anything to do with her.
Trace Weston has a secretive life, he’s built on secrets and connections that he made while serving in the military. Skye was his life but he let her go so she could follow her dreams. He didn’t want to hold her back and he knew she would give up everything to be with her. But he’s never forgotten about her. So when she suddenly appears at his office, he gladly steps back into her life. But will their reunion be a welcome one?
Both Trace and Skye must face their connected pasts together while trying to find out who is behind the threat against Skye.
This isn’t a normal book for me to read, but I was pleasantly surprised. It didn’t have the best character development but I still felt there was enough to propel the story forward. The mystery behind the threat on Skye kept me interested in the story and made me want to continue with the series. Mine to Take is the first book in this series. Book four is about to be released.
