Take Me Down Carly Phillips Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.

Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.

Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys … But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.

Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel … everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.

User reviews about this book

  • Love the Knight brothers !

    By Crystal's Book World
    I love the Knight family and I am still hurting for Ian. He plays a role in this story, but the light shines on his little brother Parker. I feel for the hero of this story. I can feel how he is lost and just trying to fit in a world that he does not belong to. He needs the outdoors. He needs a new dream. With demons crawling from the past, he does not seem like he will ever find happiness again. I hurt for Parker. Emily is our strong heroine. She has a lot going on, but I can relate to her as a constant worrier. She has so much love that you can feel through each page you are reading. The chemistry with the characters goes unnoticed.
  • Great Fun read!!

    By Connor oo7
    Parker Knight is was a skier with dreams of going to the Olympics. After getting hurt he was forced to retired, and as you can imagine life has never been the same. He functions but he is not living his life to the fullest. His siblings recognize this and get him an assignment that forces him out of his office and not a skiers dreamland. Emily is back home helping her father at the B&B her mother and father opened, although she strongly believes her father should just sell the B&B and let someone younger deal with all the repairs it needs. Parker is instantly attracted to Emily even though she is clearly working hard at not liking him. He represents everything she mistrusts and doesn't want in her life again. Its a love story that reminds us to slow down and look at what is right in front of us because sometimes life is giving us a second chance at happiness. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Parker is a white knight!

    By Grinandstampit
    Parker has always been called Switzerland. He is often neutral and quiet in the family business that he has never loved. As he travels in Colorado to scope out a retreat site he meets Emily who has her own set of baggage. As Parker tries to help Emily he falls.....for someone he can’t have. Read this truly wonderful Carly Phillips 5 star novel to see if Parker gets his happily ever after. I loved it.
  • Learning to live again!

    By Cheryl SDS
    This is book 2 in the Knight Brothers series and it features Parker and Emily. Parker has had a rough time at life. He’s been through so much, repeatedly. It may have been intrusive of Ethan but I’m glad he brought in the private investigator. This is a story about learning to live again after so much tragedy. Both Parker and Emily have been through a lot. It was perfect between them until life got in the way. I didn’t see any way it could work out. This is a scorching HOT romance with a fantastic story line and awesome characters. I can’t wait for the next book!
  • Entertaining and heart wrenching

    By charlligirl
    I love seeing a strong woman, especially when she shows some weakness and vulnerability. That is what this book is all about. Emily was "weak" with her ex-husband, but it was unknowingly. When she finally realized it she got out. Good for her. But she was never going to find herself in the same position. Until now. Enter Parker Knight. Another city slicker, alpha, in charge man. Well no thank you. No matter how much she wanted him gone, he stayed. And as each day passed, she became more open and vulnerable with him. They were meant to be, but neither was quite ready for it. Love hit them like an out of control boulder down the side of a mountain. Watching their interactions was entertaining. But also heartwrenching when they decided to be open with each other and bare their worst. Add in Harper to the mix and laughs were all around. But the best part was watching Parker stand up to Ethan and put him in his place. I think Ethan has alot of work ahead of him to get on Emily's good side, but if anyone can do it, he can.
  • Take Me Down

    By Jen G F
    ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars Received from BookSprout. Take Me Down is book 3 in the Knight Brothers series by Carly Phillips. Such an awesome new series.. whatever Carly Phillips writes I will read!!!!! Parker Knight, sexy alpha, former Olympic skier and works in the family business which doesn’t feel right but after being injured, suffered a devastating loss and knowing he can never compete again the family business is all he has left...until he is sent to look at a new place in Colorado for a company retreat...a run down B&B and all the potential to help him heal his heart... Emily Stevens, feisty, culinary trained baker and emotionally abused by her ex, she moves back home to help her dad with the B&B and do the repairs to get it up to full potential and maybe get her dad to sell and move away to a place better suited to his health...according to her. When she meets Parker, he reminds her of a city slicker just like her ex and wants no parts of him... Can Parker prove he’s the man for her, show her the B&B’s full potential, show her not all men are like her ex and find their HEA together or will Emily close her heart to what’s in front of her???
  • What a Knight.

    By KellyMcClure
    Parker Knight doesn’t know what he’s missing until he comes upon the little inn in the middle of Colorado. It doesn’t take him long to figure out that Emily Stevens has stolen his heart. But how will they make a long distance relationship work? His life is in New York. She is tied to the Inn and her family. This is the third in a series and it is classic Carly Phillips. I always love reading her series, especially the family based stories like the Dare’s and now the Knights. Parker and Emily share a sweet story about overcoming demons of the past and moving on together.
  • My favorite Knight!

    By KindleKat64
    Okay Parker Knight is hands down my favorite Knight!! This book got me through my 6 hour plane ride home yesterday and what a great couple to spend that time with. Parker is sweet, caring, generous (sometimes too much), charming (but in a good way) and so very sexy. He has many more redeeming qualities but you see what I mean. Since his skiing career and engagement ended Parker has just been going through the motions and has thrown himself into being successful working with his brothers. But something has been missing for a while now and he finds out what that is when his car breaks down in a Colorado town and he meets Emily at the B&B she runs with her father. He has definitely found his reason in Emily! Only she does not like him much at first because she thinks he is like her ex, but that is before she gets to know him and sees that it is actually the furthest thing from the truth. I love watching this relationship unfold and was rooting for them so hard!! I love how Parker acts with Emily and her Dad and how he truly cares about what is happening to their Inn and their town and will help them and fight for them. He is as protective as he is sweet and I simply adore him. I love Emily and felt she and Parker were perfect for each other. I love that she is so thoughtful, driven and caring but thankfully she had her friend Harper to help her see the light. This is another winner in this wonderful series!! I can't wait to see what's in store next!
  • Great read

    By tree7404
    This is another great read and addition to a great series. Parker and Emily are a great couple that help each other through their difficult pasts. I loved the way they met and how they interacted with each other. Carly Phillips never disappoints and this is another wonderful read. I am waiting (not patiently) the next addition to this series Dare Me Tonight.
  • Fun read!

    By Kahea46/Books n Wine Blog
    ***5 Stars*** Such a fun read! It was quick and filled with all the goodness of two people getting to know each other and finding that the pull they have towards each other is more than either had ever thought to find. I adored Parker. This man has been through a lot more than most realize, even his own family who he is very close to, but he keeps on going and is simply surviving. But his easy going nature and charisma were just as lethal as when he decided to step in and take charge in the best of ways. I really liked Emily, but man did I want to reach out and shake some sense into her in the beginning. I understood why she felt and acted the way she did, but she went a little further than was necessary. But once she took a step back, her heart and sassy nature came through and I ended up loving her. Their journey to their HEA started off on a very rocky foot, but I loved how Parker took it all in stride and showed Emily the kind of man he really was. Their bantering, even when a little biting, was fun and I loved watching them become closer and found that they were exactly what they never knew they needed and wanted. It was really easy to get lost in Parker and Emily’s story. It was engaging and I loved getting to know them and watch as they worked through the issues that had been chasing them. I loved James and Harper, and hope that we’ll see more of them down the road, and getting to catch up with Sebastian, Ashley and Sierra was a lot of fun. And then there is Ethan. This man...all I can say is that I cannot wait to get my hands on his book and watch him fall! ~ Copy provided by the author via Booksprout & voluntarily reviewed ~
