{Adult Romance Minute Review} Taken by Him by Red Garnier

{Adult Romance Minute Review} Taken by Him by Red Garnier

The Billionaire’s Club: The wealthiest, most powerful men, not only in Chicago, but in the world.  They are used to having whatever they want, whenever they want it.

Luke Preston is the ultimate playboy among his billionaire friends.  Every bad girl in Chicago has surrendered in his bed.  Some good girls, too.  But when he ends up in the hospital after an assassination attempt, his friends suggest he take a long vacation to recoup, regroup and lay off the women until the man is caught.  However, when Luke lays eyes on the stunning brunette across the beach, she inspires every dark, erotic thought his mind can conjure.

Peyton Lane has always been serious and responsible and she’s determined to have some fun for once in her life.  And that means a deliciously, sexy affair with a stranger while she’s on vacation.  So when a blond Adonis named Luke crosses her path at the Cancun resort, she’s determined that he will be the one. But Peyton gets more than she bargained for when Luke introduces her to a passion unlike any she has ever experienced and she discovers that behind that charming smile are secrets and a beautiful, damaged soul.

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!

"A failed murder attempt felt crappier than a failed orgasm, when you were the one getting shot." (page 1, line 1)
Sexy, humorous, steamy. Very steamy. Luke and Peyton were fun. Luke's the typical alpha male with the world at his feet, going through women like kleenex. He's cocky and arrogant and only looking for a good time. But he's likable even though he's a man whore. Peyton's a great girl for Luke, she isn't a pushover. She's strong and confident and stands her ground. She knows what she wants. They both do. But then emotions start getting involved and things start getting interesting. 

I liked Garnier's writing style, her voice, the flow of the story.  I look forward to reading more from her.
