My review of Taken by Love by Sharon Kleve

I have read a few of Sharon’s books now and when she contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing her latest book I jumped at the chance!  I really enjoy her writing style and haven’t been disappointed yet.

Taken by Love is book one of the exciting “Taken Series” – In this book you slip you into the world of drug cartels, DEA operations, and the never-waiving love between Arden and Lucy, the main characters of the story.

Arden Jones is a DEA agent and has seen and done it all. His transfer to a desk job is finally in reach. But, when his good friend is brutally murdered he must go after the cartel one more time while protecting the ones he loves.  Lucy Farris arranges flowers for a living, lives in a quaint house in the outskirts of Seattle, and has two adorable Siamese cats. The last thing she expects is to be kidnapped and used as bait to by the cartel to hunt the man she loves….

This book was a short and punchy novella, we got to learn about the characters and their relationship and there is also a good amount of drama and suspense thrown in.  Its not a long book and didn’t take me very long to read – I am looking forward to the next in the series to see how the relationship develops – 4 stars
