Take Me As I Am - Charmaine Ross

An emotional story about growth and change.

I blew through this book faster than I thought I would. Like other romances, the man focus was on the love between the hero and heroine, but this story also focused heavily on the changes Kate decided to make and how she took control of her own life.

From the beginning, Kate was very conflicted. She had earned a certain reputation (being dubbed "Queen Kate"), but she struggled with this. I got the impression that she was sort of a "damsel in distress" locked in the top of her family's ivory tower waiting to be set free.

Enter David, the lowly landscaper who does everything passionately...and I mean EVERYTHING (wink wink). He and Kate battle it out for the redemption of her self and self-worth, and David's actions, especially towards the end, were very endearing. Anyone who has struggled within themselves would want a person like David on their side.

All in all, this was a great story with a unique perspective, and a very clear message: Be true to yourself!
