Taken With You (Fractured Connections, #4) by Carrie Ann Ryan
The Fractured Connections series for me is the best of Carrie Ann Ryan's books. They are emotional and about people, how they handle hurt and disapointment. The series is about four brothers that went into the foster series and end up inheriting their foster parents business, a pub.
The previous books were about the older brothers and how they connect with their significant others amongst their stories we met Meadow and Beckham, she is a friend of the group and he is the bartender of the pub but a great friend and confident of the characters.
Meadow and Beckham always circled together and now we can read their story in this novella. I just loved Meadow and Beckham's journey, they have a past story full of secrets and he does know who she was in her previous life. Now, he is conflicted because of this secret but at the same time wants to breath a little and be happy with the woman he loves. Who can blame Beckham? I loved this book, it is one of the best I read from this author and I sure recommend it!

Excerpt 3 (384 words)
“Anyway, where have you been?” Violet asked.
I frowned. “Here? Where I am always.”
“You say that, yet you haven’t texted. No call. No note,” Sienna said, perfecting her perfect British accent as she pretended that she was Molly Weasley from the Harry Potter series.
“I’m fine. Really. Just busy working. And after the wedding, I figured everyone would be busy with cleanup and honeymooning and everything that brides are supposed to do on their wedding night.” I looked at Harmony, and she blushed even harder.
Apparently, she’d had a very nice wedding night.
“Well, considering you ran out of the reception, I wanted to make sure you were okay.”
I looked at Violet, noting the concern in her eyes.
“I didn’t run. I said goodbye.”
“And then you ran like there was a demon on your tail,” Sienna said. “We saw. Are you okay?”
“I didn’t see,” Harmony said quickly. “I was a little preoccupied. And I’m sorry about that. But what happened? Are you okay?”
We settled on the couches, and I set my hands in my lap.
I thought I’d hid things well. But from the way they looked at me now, I knew I hadn’t been entirely successful.
I’d never been very good at hiding.
The bruises on my soul were evidence of that.
“What’s fine?” Violet asked, her voice stern.
“Beckham kissed me.” I hadn’t actually meant to say that. And as their eyes widened, and they leaned forward, I knew I was in for it.
That secret was supposed to go with me to the grave. The kiss hadn’t meant anything. It couldn’t.
“He did? Did you not want it?” Sienna asked, frowning. “Because I’ll kick his ass for you, or I’ll have Aiden do it if that’s the case. He may be big and bearded and a little broody—although he’s not really bearded right now since he shaved for the wedding—but anyway, I will totally kick his ass if I need to. Or have it kicked.”
I shook my head quickly as Sienna continued to ramble.
“I’m fine. Really. He didn’t hurt me. Didn’t do anything wrong. But it can never happen again. It can’t. Totally not going there again.”
I slammed my mouth shut as the girls looked at me expectantly.
