Book Review: Take (The Need Trilogy #2) by R. Phoenix

Book Review: Take (The Need Trilogy #2) by R. Phoenix

Changes in the Mirza family have left both Tavi and Rex struggling to learn their new roles -- and there's no room for error. Pretending to be his twin brother is more difficult than Tavi could have imagined, and family secrets threaten to tear him apart. Rex, protected and cared for in every way, has a far from peaceful life.

Both have gained knowledge they didn't necessarily want to have, and now that it's been learned, they can't simply forget it again. As their lives continue to change, will they change for the better... or will the price for the twins' actions be too high?


*This is NOT a standalone and should be read after Want (The Need Trilogy #1). This dark taboo tale contains several kinks that may offend or trigger some readers, including (but not limited to) age play, ABDL, spanking, and humiliation. Not every dynamic or element is 100% consensual.

Though The Need Trilogy is set in The Fate of the Fallen world, the trilogy can be read separately from the series. The main characters do not appear in the FotF/SQ books, and there are minimal spoilers for the series or other books set in the universe.

4.5 Stars!

Take is book 2 in The Need Trilogy series and it needs to be read in order. Please be warned that this series is dark taboo, as in it deals with twincest, age play, dub/non-con, ABDL, etc. If that's not your thing, that's perfectly fine, but if you give it a try, who knows? You might find a new kink. ;)

Take starts right where Want ended, and now Rex is settling into his new role, even if he's still conflicted about the whole thing. He's finally starting to see how badly he treated his brother before, though, and how this new relationship, even if it's not exactly consensual, might give him all those things he's been craving all his life.

I think that while Want showed us more of Tavi, Take gave us a deeper understanding of Rex. His thought process, his uncertainty, his wavering between wanting to be free and wanting to be Tavi's were enlightening and made me sort of, kind of like him better than I did in book 1. Tavi is still my favorite, though.

And of course, I adore Desi in all her brilliant madness and Nyla in her evil mastermind-ness. I felt bad that Nyla had to marry Julian to protect Tavi and I wonder what Tavi will think of it if/when he finds out about it, because I have a feeling it might come into play in the next book.

Overall, this was a fantastic addition to the series. Well-written and captivating, I just can't get enough of Tavi and Rex and I'm (im)patiently waiting to see what will happen next.
