Taken by Him

The Billionaire's Club, #2

Taken by Him by Red Garnier book 2 in the Billionaire's Club is the ultimate woman's vacation fantasy.

Jovial good time boy Luke Preston is about have his world tipped upside-down. Parties and women have always been Luke's favorite past-time. Everyone knows the score when they dance with the devil, until the devil get bitten himself. An ill-advised tryst sends our boy reluctantly scurrying into hiding; right into the arms of his dreams made flesh. Still reeling from his life shatter brush with death, Luke absconds himself to a remote island paradise to recharge and soak up a little sun. Not really looking for a little fun in the sun, Luke finds himself knocked on his ass by a delectable morsel named, Peyton Lane.

Peyton Lane is ready to have some serious fun and take the plunge so to speak. Looking to have her fantasy vacation fulfilled with time running out, she decides to pick Luke Preston as her perfect vacation fling. What was to be an interlude in carnal delights turns into something more. Something sweeter and more difficult to let pass away.

Unlike the first installment, Taken by Him is all about a chance meeting. A once in a life time opportunity not to be passed up. What happens afterwards is a lesson in be careful what wish for. Being viewed and considered the ultimate catch. His reputation for being a rakish playboy never bothered Luke his entire adult life. Yet, now at a crossroads in his life, even a playboy can dream of a true relationship. A relationship built character and feelings, not dollars and connections. I love Luke's devil may care attitude, though he is so over the top in his assessment of his romantic prowess.

Ms. Garnier keeps getting better and better. The romance is hot and spicy with a touch of dirty. Oh! Did I mention that the sex is hot and steamy? I really enjoyed this installment of the series and can’t wait to read the next one, “Bound to Him”.
