Ah-MAY-zing Reads 2014: Take Me On Story Soundtrack


It’s Take Me On day! Take Me On is the fourth novel in the Pushing The Limits series, which I love love love. I’m a huge Katie McGarry fan so I’m super psyched and honored to be able to share her story soundtrack today. Go listen!

The Story

take me on katie mcgarry


Heart of the matter
In TAKE ME ON, an unexpected bond forms between a bad boy and a girl who is a champion kick boxer when she agrees to train him for an upcoming fight, but when attraction mocks their best intentions, they’ll face their darkest fears and discover love is worth fighting for.

Moment of truth
“Because you’re the girl I’ve been waiting for.”
~ West to Haley, Take Me On


The Soundtrack

“Harder to Breathe” by Maroon 5
When it gets cold outside and you got nobody to love
You’ll understand what I mean when I say
There’s no way we’re gonna give up

Quote: “You’re a jerk,” she (Haley) spits out.
I throw out my arms. “I sure am, but at least I’m not playing dead. Are you fighting or are you running? Because this is on you. You can say whatever you want and you can push me as hard and as long as you want, but I’m not tapping out.”

“Wild Ones” by Flo Rida (feat. Sia)
Show you another side of me
A side you would never thought you would see

Quote: “Who are you? None of this—” and she (Haley) motions around the room “—fits what I know.”
“Maybe because what you’ve seen isn’t the real me.” (West)
“I’ve seen you. I know I have…”

“Love Is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar (Covered by Panamah)
We are strong
No one can tell us we’re wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

Quote: “We’re strong together, Haley,” West murmurs. “Stronger than we are apart.”

*squealing* I cannot contain my excitement because I just know I’ll love West! Thank you for sharing these awesome songs, Katie! (<3 YOU AND YOUR BOOKS 5EVA) Book nerds, if you enjoyed this story soundtrack, you definitely should add Take Me On to your to-read shelves!

    I love Katie McGarry’s books. I always expect her books to make me fall for her characters, have their pains break my heart, and then put it back together.
