My Review

I received an ARC copy in exchange for a honest review. Thanks to Netgalley and Montlake Romance Publishing.

Tycoon Takedown is a wonderful romance that won my heart. I have adored this author since I first discovered her a few years ago. In this latest series, we have a western theme going on. In Tycoon Takedown, we have the hero who is a successful businessman, and considered to be powerful and influential and resides in New York. The heroine wants to make up for a past mistake, so she and Charles start a intimate relationship, and soon we see the start of a relationship that is not going to be easy to keep. Charles is stubborn and has a past that prevents him from being open to a healthy relationship. On the surface he seems to be a cold and unfeeling, but in the center, he is a human being that is hurting. But then when Charles and Melanie get separated, and soon Charles will have to realize what is really important in life. Tycoon Takedown is a emotional driven romance that gets to the heart of what makes us all take. What gives us pain, what offers us joy, and what makes us feel love. This is a love story that is engrossing and deeply moving. CHARMING!
