What happens in Vegas…can lead to romance.

It took one wild night for Sergeant Jeremy Addison to realize that Vegas? Was a bad idea.

Bloody. Bruised. Dehydrated. Abandoned in the desert, and left to stagger down the road. The only way this leave could get worse was if his savior was his ex-best friend’s sister…and the girl he’d loved since childhood.

The last person Erica expected to find on the roadside was her high school crush. She hadn’t seen Jeremy in seven years—ever since the night he said he loved her, and she ran away. Losing him then had been a mistake, but wanting him now could be catastrophic if he discovered the secret that chased every other man from her life. But with a tall, tattooed Marine determined to prove he’s always been faithful, can Erica resist his advances…or will she surrender ground and give love a try?

"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 reading On One Condition months ago I have been obsessed with Diane's books. They are just phenomenal and Try Me is no different. You will be falling head over heels in love within the first couple of pages. As soon as I heard of this it was on my kindle and I was lounging in bed with my kindle and a cocktail. Perfect night in. Yes, this happens all the time, especially with my favourite authors like Diane. Nothing could possibly be better. Okay, the characters actually coming to life could be better but... never mind back to the book.

Jeremy is a marine taking his leave in Vegas. When he wakes up in the middle of nowhere with no idea how he got there he knows he's in trouble. When he sees a car coming he thinks his look is in. He's wrong. The person to find him is the only person who he ever loved and the very person who broke his heart. But Erica is just as shocked at finding Jeremy than he is. Why did he reject him all those years ago and is this fate giving them a second chance to find love? 

I loved this book. I mean I adored this book it was just fantastic and I read it in one sitting. Anyone who loved tortured heroes who need saving? Yes? Well this is the book for you. Within a page I was in love with the book. Duh, of course I was. Diane wrote it, I already loved it before I even read a page. (Psst, if you haven't read any of Diane's books go.... NOW!) Well I love the guys in her other books but I'm sorry guys you have got nothing on Jeremy. 

Oh. My. God! That is all I can say about Jeremy. He is amazing. He is a super hot marine. Enough Said! *fans self* Not only is he amazing but he is the most stubborn, sweetest guy ever! Definitely my kinda guy. It's fair to say I fell head over heels in love with him straight away and all I wanted was to give him a hug. I kinda hated Erica because of him. Who would reject him? I was hellllooooo are you crazy? Then I read on.

Erica is a great heroine. Yes she irritated me to no end at first. I wanted to slap her or hit her across the head to knock some sense into her or something! Then we saw her point of view and I loved her just as much as Jeremy. Okay... that's a lie. But there's a valid reason why I love Jeremy more. Why? Have you been paying attention? Hot marine!!!! Okay back to Erica. I loved finding out more about Erica and you find out her secret (No I'm not telling you what it is!) and you just want to hug her and tell her everything is okay, but we let Jeremy do that instead. Not bitter and jealous of a fictional character or anything. Honestly! (Okay it's a lie). As much as Erica irritated me at the beginning of this book I did love her in the end and I just loved the ending. It was perfect.

If you love sappy love stories like me this is definitely the book for you. It's amazing and it had me swooning a whole lot throughout. Jeremy is so a new book boyfriend for me and you have no idea how excited I am to find out this is the first in the Take A Chance series. I'm hoping we get to see a whole lot more of Jeremy. ;)
I would definitely suggest this book to anyone. Fantastic!

"I love you. I've never stopped loving you. Will never stop loving you, no matter what you do or say."
