Twenty-four year old Dexter Michaels has arrived in the UK for a fresh start - leaving everything and everyone he knows behind in the states. Determined to put right some of the wrongs he’ll never be able to forgive himself for making and make his Aunt Sarah – the only person left who still believes in him - proud, he lands in London with the intention of working hard, getting his degree and keeping himself to himself. He can’t destroy anybody else that way…
His heart and his body have other ideas however when he finds himself sitting next to nineteen year old Emily Barton in his Psychology class. Moving down south to find her own New Life, Emily is shy, smart and beautiful – everything Dexter knows he should stay away from… everything he knows would be too easy for him to break. But she makes him feel things he’d forgotten even existed. She makes him laugh, smile, care… forget. Without her trying, and without him realizing, Emily has wound her way into the one place he swore to keep locked away forever – his heart. But can she stay there when she discovers the dark past he’s so determined to keep hidden from her? Or will he destroy her too, just like he always expected? (Not recommended for younger readers due to language, drug/alcohol abuse and sexual content)

My Review
41/2 stars out of 5

Emily and her best friend Rachel have moved away from home to live the life of college students, but Emily is  reserved and very shy when it comes to being in social settings. Best friend Rachel decided to come up with a life list to get Em to loosen up and live a little. Little did she know that  the first item on their list would lead her to Dexter. Dexter is an American trying to make a new life in London, getting away from his past. He has closed himself off from getting close to anyone, but all that changes when he meets Emily. This story line had me captivated when Emily and Dexter started hanging out. It has it moments when I laughed out loud. There were also parts where I wanted to yell at both of them to give into each others feelings. Em's best friend Rachel can come off as a bit pushy but I get where she's coming from. A very endearing story about opening up and learning how to lean on others for support through your toughest times. Take My Hand is a book that you can easily get lost in and loose track of time. I recommend this book for those that love a good story about love, redemption and learning how to accept and move on from your past. You will not be disappointed..
