At the same time they cross paths with a well-connected player who introduces them to the right people, and suddenly every studio in town wants to talk to Chase and Keith. The producers’ dreams are on the verge of coming true, but Chase’s marriage is strained and Keith’s daughter—Andi Ellison—is making questionable choices in her quest for stardom. The producers are gaining respect and are on the verge of truly changing culture through the power of film—but is the change worth the cost?

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianne Evans | 2/8/2014

    " Wow. This book was such a wonderful follow up to to Take One. Chase rebukes extra-marital temptation easily and completly in book 1, but in book 2, we are introduced to Kendall Adams, a gorgeous, spirit-filled and devout Christian. Chase and Kendall connect at deep and realistic emotional levels as Chase's marriage strains and begins to crumble as his wife's mental and physical health go downhill. Temptation, this time, is not so easily refused. What happens next? You have to read it to see, and it is so worth the journey. Beautifully done, intriguing, heart-capturing characters---all the hallmarks of the best KK has to offer. "

    " not the most addicting series. The first book was pretty boring most of the time but it caught my attention enough to want me to read the second book. The second book was a little better and I want to keep reading the series because I have just enough interest in it to find out what happens next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 2/4/2014

    " Looking forward to the next installment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kw | 1/28/2014

    " Bailey's cluelessness is really unbelievable, and some of the connections seem tenuous, but I still plan to read the other two books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana (Bever) Barber | 1/23/2014

    " Ignore the typos and the misuse of adverbs (adjectives, instead). This book is worth it. Take Two is #2 in the series--imagine that! It shows the consequences of sin without denigrating the sinner, and the marvelous miracles God sends us--those that are meant to be life-changing and those that simply are meant to sustain us and remind us that He is there and is ultimately in charge (when we let Him be). We all make mistakes, and we can all find mercy and forgiveness in repentance. Look at my review! What nasty run-on sentences. The point is, this is a good series when you need a spiritual pick-me-up. You could start with this one or pick up #1 (Take One). Either way, if you're looking for a way to expand your own relationship with God, meet these very real-to-life characters by author Karen Kingsbury. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristine | 1/21/2014

    " I really like how the author goes from character to character allowing them to tell their story and give their perspective. Andie is approached by a school mate Taz to star in a film he's written that requires partial nudity. Bailey struggles with her friendship with Cody as she continues to date Tim. Chase and Keith struggle with financing for Unlocked. Kelly continues to overeat and battle depression. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn Jones | 1/20/2014

    " I loved this one as well. God really used this book to speak to me. I could really relate to one of the characters. It was like Karen Kingsbury had a camera in my home or something! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 1/19/2014

    " This book was good, although it was very different from Karen's other books. I think that some parts in the book did not need to be added, but in the end someone gave their life to Christ, so that was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/18/2014

    " Great followup to Take One! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 1/18/2014

    " Really enjoyed this addition to the series...ok...maybe "enjoyed" isn't the right word since some of it hit a little close to home. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Copeland | 12/21/2013

    " Listening via audiobook "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalia | 11/20/2013

    " I really liked it, but it had part of Unlocked in it. So I didn't really like that she used her book for the movie, but oh well... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rshelite | 11/19/2013

    " Wonderful book... You know that Karen is my favorite author. I can't wait until the next one comes out. "

    " I love Karen Kingsbury! She is my favorite author! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/4/2013

    " Not as preachy as most of Kingsbury's novels and an actual cliff-hanger to make you want to read the next in the series. A step up from her usual. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marie | 9/15/2013

    " Boo to having a bunch of white people in your books and then the first middle easterner (or whatever, I read this a long time ago) is a two dimentional evil guy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 6/12/2013

    " As always, a great read. I can't wait for the next one to come out. I love how the series builds on one another. I feel like I personally know the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 3/29/2013

    " This book has alot to do with how we should not lose focus on God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret Boehm | 2/2/2013

    " Take one was really good, Take Two gets kind of weak. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessie Jones | 12/2/2012

    " I love this book, love this series. Karen Kingsbury constantly uses her long-standing characters and ever-evolving new ones to tell fabulous stories. I wouldn't recommend this series before you read all of the background ones..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cris-Annette | 7/29/2012

    " well written as always. Looking forward to finding out what will happen with Andi and her curiosity of "worldly pleasures". Karen has a way of really reaching deep into her characters heart and making the reader feel like the characters are family. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Williams | 7/20/2012

    " I keep hoping that her writing style goes back to her earlier books. I feel as if she is just pumping out books now and I don't really like them anymore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 6/30/2012

    " This book really spoke to me about letting your mind get the best of you. "

    " I enjoyed the book as I do all of Karen Kingsbury's work, however in this case there were three primary story lines and the book left you hanging on all three. I felt a little like I was cheated out of the ending. Debated between 3 and 4 stars for this reason. "
