    One thought on “Taking Mine”

    1. This was a surprisingly fabulous book. I read the synopsis and thought it would be good, but turned out way better than I thought. While I was reading, I thought there has to be a huge reason why Justin kept pushing Lilly away but was so interested in what she does. I really enjoyed the twist at the end. Although, Lance I did not see coming at all. I loved the thrill aspect of this book. It as almost like Gone In 60 Seconds was turned into a book, but with better characters. Lilly's relationship [...]

    3. There's something carnal about being so attracted to someone, something that makes me want to leap out of my skin because I can't handle what my body is telling me.This book definitely took me by surprise. I knew going into this that it was a new adult book by a debut author, and I assumed I would like it and that it would be good. But I LOVED it. This was so much fun. I seriously love Lilly. I found it so easy for me to associate with her personality, it was almost like she was based on me. Lol [...]

    4. 4.5First of all, thank you Rachel for the copy. I really had no idea that the book was going to take the turns it did. Which is a really good thing because I'm all for something different. I was totally surprised at what happened 3/4ths of the way through but it just made the story more interesting because I really didn't see it coming. This book was exciting, suspenseful and of course it had the romance. For a debut novel, the writing was phenomenal! I was sucked in from the very beginning and [...]

    5. Brilliant debutRachel Schneider has written a brilliant debut novel with Taking Mine. I felt like I was in a Fast and Furious movie which I loved! Such a great take on the genre!

Ms. Schneider throws in a fantastic twist that I never saw coming and it threw me for a loop! I loved all the attention to details in this high speed [...]

    6. It's not often when you find a new author, and immediately you fall in love with their writing style. You find it hard to put the book down and curse day today life for getting in the way, but not only that you cuss yourself out for leaving it so long to pick up just because it's a debut author and you're not sure, it sounded ok, but. Seriously how wrong can you be ! For a debut author I'm in awe of Rachel, now it takes a lot for me to give away my precious stars, a book has to have it all, you [...]

    7. what I was expecting when I opened the book. Lilly is something. She is a very unique female lead. She shattered the strong girl stereotype and made one of her own: complete Bad A**! Her inner monologue never got tiring. In fact, I often chuckled at her in general. Her personality is sassy, sarcastic, and surprisingly had this cautious loving and tender side that makes her the all around amazing character she is.Justin. I really didn't know what to think of them at first. He was a puzzle. Once h [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this. It is a great debut novel for Rachel. It was one of those i wasnt sure where it was gonna go then.! It hits you all at once. About halfway it really picks up pace.

All of it was just brilliant! I was hooked [...]

    10. 4.5 stars!Rachel Schneider has blown me away with her debut novel, Taking Mine. Taking Mine is a unique book that had me feeling everything the main character felt. When Lilly was nervous I was nervous, when she had adrenaline coursing through her veins, so did I! There is no way I can explain this rush other than I felt connected to her. When an author gets you that invested in a book you definitely know they did an excellent job writing it! Let me tell you a little bit about the book. Lilly is [...]

    13. Taking Mine by Rachel Schneider isn't a cookie cutter traditional romance you find released each week. In her debut novel Rachel has created a layered romance with a twist that had me unable to put down my Kindle till the end.

She had backbone and was take-no-crap which I enjoyed. This author does a phenomenal job of p [...]

    20. "Everyone comes to a point in their life when, if desperate enough, scared enough, they'll do anything to protect the people they love."This is hands down, going on my list of the best debut novels that I have had the pleasure of reading. It is really rare for an author to kill it on the first try, most struggle and get better over time. That being said, I am super excited to share this author and the amazing story that she wrote with everyone. Let's discuss Lilly and Justin and their whirlwind [...]

    21. I'm kicking myself for waiting this long to read this book *shakes fist at world* Damn you, uni courses and non-fun readings. I mean it's in the middle of exam time and I still didn't have time to read but I decided I needed to just start a book, read a couple of pages before bedtime so I could fall asleep. You book nerds know exactly what happened don't you? A couple of pages? Child please. I ended up reading the entire book, finished it at 4:35 AM (THIS MORNING). Talk about sleep-deprived, but [...]

    22. Solid 4 Star ReadThis is the first book by Rachel Schneider that I have read and it did not disappoint. Taking Mine was not your typical romance with the bad boy and the good girl. In fact is was exactly the opposite. Lilly (the protagonist) has had a hard run in life with a father that was killed by a cop and an alcoholic mother that left her at an early age. She was raised by her brother who tried to raise her right but had to do things himself that the didn't like in order to put food on the [...]

    23. Taking Mine by Rachel Schneider I always enjoy a non-traditional love story--something other then the typical boy meets girl and they live happily ever after stuff. This book will give you so much more then that. College student Lilly is feisty and has a sarcastic manner about her--She's officially a book BFF of mine now. Raised by her older brother Kip, Lilly does her best to please him and has goals on getting into law school, until her grades slip and she loses her scholarship. To make some f [...]

    26. This was such an awesome surprise! I have been getting annoyed with the the usual drama of cheating, man whores, and women who give in too easy. This was such a good book with a unique storyline. Lilly was a neat character who may have been lost as her upbringing wasn't the best. Her brother is very protectivemetimes overly. But it all comes from a good place. I had a feeling where this story was going and once it got there I was gutted. Justin was a great hero as well. Thank you for writing a g [...]

    27. This was one of the best debut books I've ever read. And I had to check and make sure she didn't have a bunch of books out. It was so well written, the story flowed and kept me invested through every single page. It was a fresh storyline, totally different than your good girl meets bad boy books. Loved it. I wish this author had more books out because I would seriously binge on them. No. I was not paid not given a book in exchange for this review. The book is just that good. So it needed a rambl [...]

I can't wait to read more from Rachel!
