After breaking up with her long time boyfriend, Jackson DeLacey, eighteen-year-old Zara Borzilleri promises herself to focus on school and play the game she loves. Stepping foot onto the lacrosse field, in front of a cheering crowd, pushes aside the pain and reminds her of the future ahead at least until she graduates in four years.
Lacrosse star Treston 'The King' Parker dominates the field and to everyone else he has it all. Behind closed doors he's just Treston Parker- a monster full of secrets, deep, dark secrets only he knows. He won't allow anyone to get close and for the past two years he's kept his promises to her, but never his last promise: falling in love again.
One weekend he gives in and everything changes when he meets Zara. The rules change and she sees Treston for who he truly is, not what everyone else sees. But to Treston, meeting Zara means nothing, even though her blue eyes invades his mind.
We can be friends, but don't ask about my past or where I go.
He draws the lines.
She erases his lines.
Can Zara help Treston escape his painful past before he sinks deeper into oblivion?

Holy Moly what an emotional read!!
I loved Treston. I did find him arrogant at the beginning of the story but then you kind of get him. He's broken, lonely, racked with guilt and he pulls at your heartstrings. By the end of the book, you will love him.
Zara is a strong, feisty character. I loved the fact she didn't take Treston's shit. Wasn't happy when things ended with Jackson at the beginning and felt like he forgave her to quickly. But all was redeemed when you watch the relationship with Zara and Treston blossom.
Take me away is about new beginnings. Learning that it's okay to love and not let your past define you. The storyline is easy to follow. If you like a tearjerker this book is for you.
