Edward Parker Wentworth has returned from Boston to take over as the CEO of his family’s company, a role his father previously held. He’s determined not to be involved in a relationship and can’t afford any distractions as he strives to lay to rest the scandalous reputation and poor employee relations which are a legacy of his father’s time as CEO. However, Sarah proves to be just too tempting and he reluctantly lets her disappear from his life . . . . but doesn’t understand why he really doesn’t want her to go.
First day in his new role, Parker gets the biggest surprise when he discovers that Sarah isn’t really Sarah and that she’s actually one of his employees! Mind you, it was just as big a shock to Emmaline. Can they resist each other? Will they succumb to temptation? Can they - should they - get to know each other? How will it impact on their jobs and lives?
Starting with one lie, their relationship possibilities leave them both torn between giving each other a big miss or giving love a chance. I enjoyed how the characters change and evolve through the story. There are plenty of humorous moments in this fun read which had me laughing out loud at times but the author still manages to pack in the angst and turmoil, showing how the characters are wary, anxious and yet so drawn to each other. It is a great, fun romance to escape into and I can't wait to read more about the Wentworth family in future!
Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review.
Parker is a young CEO. After his father's disastrous leadership of the Wentworth Group he's taking over the reins of his family's company. His father caused a big scandal and Parker wants to restore their reputation. Falling for one of his employees doesn't fit into his plans at all. He can't forget Emmaline though and wants to get to know her better, but they both have their careers to think of. Will it be a wise idea to keep seeing each other?
Taken by the CEO is a fun and sexy story. Emmaline has been hurt in the past and she's determined to make it on her own. She's shy and sweet, but she tries to be bolder and tougher, which was quite endearing to see. She's perfect for Parker. She treats him with kindness and respect, but also lets him know what she wants and what her boundaries are, which is exactly what he needs. Parker is a protective man and he's used to getting his way. Emmaline surprises him and I loved how she constantly challenges him and brings out his nice and forgiving side. They have plenty of chemistry and are a sparkling couple.
Stefanie London writes about two people who are working hard to achieve their goals. The Wentworth Group is an intriguing place to read about and the company life she describes is interesting and eventful. Falling for her boss is the last thing Emmaline wants, but love always manages to bring out the unexpected, which is something Stefanie London uses for her book in a fabulous way. It is what I loved the most about Taken by the CEO and I flew through the pages of this lovely flirty book. It's a wonderful lighthearted read with a fitting romantic ending.
Parker Wentworth works hard and plays...well, never. A workaholic, he is now starting his new role as CEO of the family business and is determined to whip it into shape. Estranged from his family because he cannot forgive the actions of his father, Parker has closed himself off in his tightly controlled portion of the world. But when he finds Emmaline he cannot help but want more. Even though she lied to him about who she was, and the fact that she is his employee, Parker wants more of her in every possible way - except for the fact that he doesn't believe in love or relationships. Can two people overcome their damaged experiences of love, or will they walk away from each other to protect their vulnerable hearts?
TAKEN BY THE CEO by Stefanie London is sizzlingly passionate and is sure to set your temperature soaring, while also creating characters that you will really care about and love. I am a huge fan of Stefanie London who is one of my go-to authors for a guaranteed wonderful reading experience, and I cannot wait for her next book.
