A game of truth or dare gets WAY out of hand in the sexiest way possible, in Katee Robert’s His to Take.

Fans of Samanthe Beck’s Private Practice or No Strings Attached by Nicolette Day, will devour the final installment of the Out of Uniform series by NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author Katee Robert.

Erin Robinson is having an epically bad year. Her blossoming career on Broadway tanked, forcing her to crawl back to home to Wellington. The icing on her failure cake? Her former on-again, off-again fling is in town, and the sexy Marine is taking up way too much space.

Warren Davis always knew Erin was special, which is exactly why he can’t have her. A girl like her deserves something permanent—something neither of them wants. But now that they’re both back in town and she’s right there in front of him, a challenge in her eyes he’s never been able to resist, he’s questioning everything.

That challenge quickly escalates into an epic game of Truth or Dare. Erin’s sure she’s got him on lock, but as the night progresses, Warren’s dares intensify, drowning her in lust. But with the past still breathing down their necks, there’s no way either of them can win…


Erin looked around. “Since we’re on the same page, why are we hiding in the Joneses’ old barn? I know Wellingford is pretty countrified but this is ridiculous.” They’d built a bigger, newer barn on the other side of their property last year, so this one was only being used for extra storage and was guaranteed to be deserted, but that didn’t mean she wanted to camp out in it. She wanted to keep moving, to get back into town and back to their game. The faster he dealt out another dare to her, the faster she could win and move on with her life.

He went to his knees in front of her, his big body sliding between her thighs and spreading her legs. “I still have my dare to complete.”

“Uh, no, you don’t. You completed it back in Miss Nora’s front yard.” She pointed even as hurt blossomed in her chest. That kiss had been freaking amazing and he was acting like it hadn’t happened at all.

He shot her a look that stole her breath, his dark eyes so heated it was a wonder she didn’t melt into a puddle at his feet. “That wasn’t a kiss.”

“I was there. Pretty sure it was a kiss.”

He pulled off one of her boots and then the other, and she was so shocked that she let him. Warren ran his hands up her legs, making her wish she’d worn something flimsier than her favorite pair of jeans. “I don’t know who you’ve been kissing over the last year, but they obviously haven’t been doing it properly.”

She bit her lip when his chilled fingers brushed the top of her jeans, slipping beneath her shirt to stroke along her skin. Why was she trying to argue her way out of this…whatever it was? “I’ve been kissed plenty fine in the last year.”

“No, you haven’t.” He abruptly tightened his grip and jerked her to the very edge of the bench.

Her breath stalled out, and she could only watch as he unbuttoned her jeans and worked them down her legs, never taking his gaze from her face. Erin licked her lips.

“How would you know?”

“Because, Freckles, you haven’t been kissed by me.”

Hi Katee.  Thank you for joining me today.  Let's talk character love. Everyone has their favorite characters from the series.  I use to think mine was Brianne & Ryan, until Avery & Drew came along.  Tell us about your favorite couple and way.
Thank you!
As an author, I feel like admitting your favorite characters is like saying you love one of your kids more than the others. And so often, it’s whoever you’re writing currently who’s the favorite. That said, now that the Out of Uniform series is finished, there is one couple who still brings all the warm and fuzzy.
Drew and Avery.
They love each other so freaking much, even before sex entered the equation, and being able to write that level of relationship while expanding it into a REAL relationship was so much fun for me. I love how Avery is take-charge and how she’s not willing to wait around for life to line up--she’ll do what it takes to bend things to accomplish what she’s after. And Drew is such a good man, despite the fact that he can’t quite see it. He’d walk through fire for Avery from the very beginning--it just took him a little longer to realize that they’d already reached the point of no return before they’d even begun.
Their story itself is a favorite, too. I love write alpha men who end up in over their heads, and Drew at the fertility clinic still makes me giggle. And the fact that they had sex and it was great...and then totally awkward. The entire book is filled with fond moments like that when I think of them.
Not to mention, Drew’s grovel and grand gesture is probably my favorite one I’ve written to date. The fact that he’s put so much thought into what being with Avery--and being a parent--would look like, and how he went and bought TWO of everything since he didn’t know if their baby was a boy or a girl…
Yeah, I love Drew and Avery. That book was also one of the more challenging in the series to write, but it ended up being the most rewarding of the finished products. So I have to agree with you there! They’re my favorite couple!
