Review: Miss Taken Series by Cleo Scornavacca

Miss Taken (Miss Taken #1)

Miss Taken (Miss Taken #1)

Love........................The Ultimate Loss of Control

Rain and Raven Medici are identical twins. Although they come from a loving close-knit family their childhoods couldn’t have been more different. Raven went to school and was exposed freely to the outside world. Rain on the other hand was born with a blood disorder and denied many normal childhood experiences.

Once grown, Raven becomes a lawyer at their dad’s firm Kane & Medici in NYC. Rain along with her only childhood friend Tommy Conte, builds a very successful business as professional photographers. Traveling between Europe and Manhattan, and enjoying a world that was kept from her, Rain vows never to be controlled again.

Dominick Kane is a product of his upbringing. He’s powerful, self-assured and knows he can achieve anything he desires. Nothing gets in his way. There is only one thing he has ever failed at. A relationship with his father Vincent Kane. Upon his father’s death, Dominick vows revenge. The events he sets in motion put him on a collision course he himself will be unable to control.

In a bizarre twist of fate, Dominick kidnaps Raven as part of his plan for revenge. Only to discover afterward, he has taken Rain by mistake. Rain knows she can never survive being confined again. So she strikes a bargain with the devil and agrees to help Dominick get back what he feels rightly belongs to him. His father’s share of Kane & Medici.

Dominick decides to use the strong attraction growing between Rain and himself to control her in every way imaginable. Too bad no one ever taught Dominick you can’t control the heart. Nothing could have prepared him for the effect Rain would have on his.

Will this plan of revenge turn into unconditional love? Or will Dominick and Rain’s need for control ultimately destroy them and any possible chance for a real future

Miss Taken, the first book of Miss Taken series, is a good read. 
The way the story started is great. 
I love how I was intrigued by the characters and the story. 
Being taken against her will because of being mistaken
 for her as her twin sister, 
Rain met the domineering Dominick. 
Rain, an artist who was being protected by her family
 because of her illness seeks to
 be free so she will go to the place where she can be free
 of her overprotective family. 
Dominick, a mysterious guy who kidnapped/taken Rain in assuming 
she is the lawyer sister. 
As the story goes, things get complicated and secrets will be revealed. 
The way the story ended is amazing! 
Loved it! 
But one thing I don't like about the story is that when Dominick is 
revealing things to Rain.. grrr.. 
But the others, loved it!


Identity (Miss Taken #2)

Identity (Miss Taken, #2)

People aren’t always who you believe them to be.

Dominick Kane and Rain Medici started their relationship with one another in the most unconventional way. 

He kidnapped her. 

With the kidnapping now behind them, life returns to normal, right?

Not a chance. 

The push, the pull and their fights for control that we’ve come to love about Dominick and Rain still exist. And so does their passion.

People aren’t who you think they are. Familiar faces are not so familiar. The past and the present collide, opening up all of those old wounds and struggles once again. 

Now, everything you thought you knew, gets blown out of the water.

Can Dominick and Rain finally heal what’s broken? Or will new discoveries push them even further apart. 

Will love win out and bring them back together? Or will ghosts of the past ultimately destroy their love once and for all...

Identity, second book of Miss Taken series 
is an AMAZING read!
The story will start where book one (Miss Taken)) left off..
As the  story continues, Dominick will face
 the things that he's afraid of..
losing the woman he loves. 
Things will also be revealed. 
The past and the present issues will collide..
that might affect them. 
Loved it! 
The way the story ended is AMAZING! 
Loved it!!! 
Ms. Cleo nailed it! 

Review: Begin Again by Christy Newton

Begin Again

What if one night changed your life forever?

Maisie Scott lost not only her husband and unborn child in a tornado two years ago, she lost her will to live. Keeping busy is the only way she can get by. This small town waitress won't let herself get attached to anyone until Ryan, the new veterinarian for exotic animals, starts making regular trips to her diner. As hard as she tries not to feel anything, Ryan ignites a spark in her broken heart.

Ryan Tucker craves a happy family of his own more than his Momma’s apple pie. Getting over his fiancĂ©e leaving him six months ago, he moves to Pleasant Valley for a fresh start. When he meets Maisie and notices the sadness in her eyes, he is determined to put a smile on her pretty face.

Begin Again, an interesting and somewhat emotional read. 
From the start up to the last, I love the story. 
The story and the characters are good. 
The characters, Maise and Ryan are easy to like. 
Maise, a woman who has a past that made her reluctant to 
have a relationship and love again. 
Ryan, a guy who wants to settle down and have a family of his own. 
When Ryan met the lonely Maise, he's determined to make her smile,
 but as time goes by, he's determined to know her more and all.. 
Ms. Christy did an amazing job in making this book full of emotions, 
and lessons that may apply in real life. 

Review: Fallen (The Fallen Saga, #1) by Emily Clarke

Julie Anderson never wanted to leave her life and friends behind in Connecticut, but when her father gets a new job in Texas she discovers her destiny. When she meets the devilishly fallen angel, Nick Landers, her life begins to unravel. Nick is different from the other boys and seems to have a crush on her. Julie soon learns that Nick has taken an oath never to fall in love with an earthly woman. Despite Nick's unhealthy obsession with her, Julie finds herself falling for him. When Julie's mother is killed in a car wreck, Julie realizes her own life is at risk and only fate will decide whether Nick kills or protects her. Fallen is a work of fiction but it contains relevant and controversial issues facing teenagers and young adults today.

Fallen, an interesting read. 
The story and the characters are interesting. 
The characters, Nick and Julie are interesting characters. 
At first, I was kind of not liking the characters, especially Julie because of how she 
dealt with things in life. But as the story goes, she redeemed herself.. 
Julie, a girl who is going through a teenage phase in which rebellion is common. 
She's having an issue about feeling something and with the moving, she will be 
trying to cope up and have a fresh start. 
Nick, a mysterious guy who captures the interest of Julie. 
As the two started to be friends, mysterious things happened to Julie's life. 
Things get more complicated when another mysterious guy appeared 
and is saying things that made Julie not sure who to trust. 
The way the story ended is good. 
I'm excited to see what will happen next to Julie!
