Blog Tour / Book Musings - Taking the Score by Kate Meader

Tall, Dark and Texan #2
Kate Meader
Releasing February 15th, 2016
Entangled Brazen

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…

Paying down her sister’s debts has left Emma Strickland with little more than the thrift store suit on her back. And as if the suckfest couldn’t get worse, she’s forced to moonlight as a waitress to support herself and her cat. At a strip club. Her uptight, sexy-as-hell boss Brody Kane can never find out.

Texas property tycoon Brody Kane hired Emma for her spreadsheet skills, but her prim and proper demeanor sealed the deal. There’s no room in his life for a sexy distraction … and yet, he can’t stop lusting after the delicious Ms. Strickland. And then he takes an important client to a Chicago strip club and gets the worst lap dance in adult entertainment history. From Emma.

Now that he knows his office good girl has a naughty streak, Brody makes it his mission to uncover her secrets, one steamy, illicit, over-the-desk encounter at a time. But Emma is hiding more than her side job, and her final secret could end up destroying them both.

I received a free copy for an honest review. This will in no way impact my thoughts on the book.

It's been a while since I have read such a hot story. Yes, the book isn't for everyone.The author has made the book a very hot and heavy story with all the in the face sex. I felt that at times it was off putting. I get that the protagonists have very good chemistry but all the sex was over the limit inspite of being one of the Brazen titles.

Aside from that, I loved the interaction between Emma and Brody. The entertaining dialogue and the struggle of feelings impact the story in a very good manner. Emma is a strong character inspite of her badness and Brody is a bundle of contradictions in the scenes because of his previous personal disaster. It was a fast read with all the fun incidents and had me finishing it in one sitting. 

Though it is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. This has piqued my interest in the first book. I will be checking it out! 

My rating : 4/5
