Take Me by Maisey Yates

★★
Sydney Davis is on track with her college goals to become a politician but the pride is replaced with shock when her roommate commits suicide at a party they were attending. Travis Beringer takes her away and helps her forget the night by escaping into passion. This is a prequel to the Fifth Avenue trilogy.

Take Me is an erotic romance short story. This was an odd short story in terms of pacing, tone and focus. The beginning is a brief glimpse at key characters in the Fifth Avenue trilogy and a vague overview of the event that ties them all together.

Over half the short story is just Sydney and Travis having sex. The scenes were edgy and sexy but I was really hoping for more plot and character development to see if I wanted to read the rest of the trilogy. 

The subsequent love confessions felt forced and overly wordy. The epilogue introduces the concept of the trilogy but I wasn't invested in the characters and lacked further interest by then.
