My rating: 5 of 5 stars
ARC kindly provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
‘Taking the Score’ is the second, steamy, EPIC read in the novella series, ‘Tall, Dark and Texan’! I loved this second volume because of the sexy-as-hell male lead, Brody (otherwise known as Broderick Kane III), and the touching and heartfelt trials and troublesome past of Emma Strickland.
The characters were so amazing! As I mentioned before, Brody was an amazing male lead because of the characteristics he possessed. He was strong and compassionate, giving and kind, protective and loyal despite all the hardships he experienced at the hands of his closest. Emma, on the other hand, was such an enigma and learning more about her was incredibly fascinating! We readers know her in the previous instalment as this prim and proper personal assistant to Brody with impeccable organisational skills and a steady, hard, work ethic. But as we delve deeper into her past she becomes more fascinating…I absolutely loved the character development!
The chemistry found in this novella was beyond crazy! I so admired the obstacles these two had to overcome to get to where they are now! Brody’s and Emma’s relationship was fascinating to watch plant and grow. Their entire interactions held so much raw POTENTIAL that tearing my eyes away from the page was near impossible.
The writing was incredible as always! Such professionalism and quality! It made the story so much better!
The pace was well set and never kept me bored! The plot was also so well structured! There was nothing that I could pick on about this book. Except for a few typos, which I hardly noticed. Weirdly, they made the reading experience sort of…endearing…
Congratulations to Kate Meader on publishing the second volume in the ‘Tall, Dark and Texan’ series! Can’t wait for the third!
1 star : Strongly did not like the book, writing and plot was bad. Idea of the book was against my liking.
2 star : Didn’t like it, didn’t find it interesting or gripping. Seemed to drag on to me.
3 star : An average book. Wasn’t bad or good. Everything else was well done. Original idea.
4 star : Like a 3 star but has potential to it as a series or the book grew on me as it progressed and certain scenes captured me. I Enjoyed it and read it in one sitting.
5 star : I LOVED IT! I stayed up late until 3 am. Author is a genius, characters, plot, idea, development, EVERYTHING was EXCELLENT. Nothing else can possibly be said except that its 5 STAR!
