Ok, I’m not even going to hang around here. I’m just going to get it out nice and loud I LOVED THIS BOOK!!

Taken is the third novel in Charlotte Stein’s Under the Skin series. The books are stand alone so you don’t need to have read the other two before Taken. I really enjoyed the previous two books, but this is the one that stands out for me. It’s not as dark as Intrusion, it’s not as emotionally complex as Forbidden, what it has got in spades is humour. The amazing sense of humour that made me fall in love with Charlotte Stein’s writing four years ago. It also has some really hot sexy times that for me just felt hotter because I’d been laughing my head off the page before.

Rosie and Hans’ relationship has an unusual beginning, but it quickly becomes apparent that the development of their relationship is going to be fascinating to read. There’s not a huge amount of angst in this book and do you know what? I really like that. It’s just full of awesome banter and getting to know you scenes and beautiful moments where they realise that they’re just totally meant for each other. I loved the simplicity of it all. They both mess up sometimes so it’s not all smooth sailing, but none of it feels unnecessary just to drive the plot. Yeah, it feels really natural and I really want to be friends with them. They’re funny and lovely (I know they’re imaginary, no need to worry) and I really wanted them to succeed.

I’m not going to go into the plot – just read the book. Hopefully it’ll leave you with the same lovely warm feeling that I have now. I know this will be a book that I bring out time and time again.

I received an ARC for a fair and honest review.

Absolutely great book! I think the 3 Under the Skin novels (Intrusion, Forbidden, Taken) are the best series of novels EVER!

Charlotte Stein has an unique way of writing - her books grab you and keep you locked in until you have consumed each and every word. The book is funny, sad, happy, serious and thoroughly entertaining. Above all it's about the relationship between a man and a woman and that we are all different.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars. So close to perfect. 15 April 2015
By S.B. Gorilla McGee - Published on Amazon.com

"I don't want to lick this lovely edition of Great Expectations. But I will do it, in the name of hot sex."

Any day I read Charlotte Stein is a great day!

Han is the big, burly owner of a bookstore. He's funny, sweet, loves to speak in hyperbole and has some serious ideas about how controlled he needs to be to keep himself out of trouble. Enter Rosie, college student who's definitely hanging with the wrong sort of people and really, really ready to make Han lose his precious self-control.

When Rosie's friend causes mischief in Han's bookstore, Rosie pays the price by becoming Han's prisoner, handcuffed to his bed downstairs.

Before you get too crazy about any non-con--this isn't what this is about. It's funny and sexy and they only person doing anything out of their comfort zone is Han.

Charlotte Stein really knows how to give us restrained heroes and wanton heroines. It's fantastic. You almost feel sorry for the poor guys for their inner battle.
"He wants to talk. Most probably about me and my hair-trigger vagina. Nothing kills a lust daze faster than a hair-trigger vagina."

As much as this is so typical, amazing Charlotte Stein, I found some things were a little different. For one thing there was more dialogue from the hero than usual. And since Han was HILARIOUS, I can only say that was a very good difference. I loved their banter.

Also, I daresay that there was slightly less steam in this than a typical C.S. novel. But not by much!!! Don't get me wrong, this isn't something you want your grandmother or teenager to know you read. It's still beautifully filthy.
4.0 out of 5 stars Avoid spoilers for the full experience! 27 Aug. 2016
By history repeats - Published on Amazon.com

Believe it or not, I found this book to be a little dialed down for a Charlotte Stein novella. I mean, it is all there - dark and scary start with a spooky behemoth who has chained a wanna-be vandal in his basement. The blurb has overtones of punishment and deep secrets. The first half of the novel, where everything is still an unknown, is terrific, taut and original. And then it flattened out for me a little. At least for a Charlotte Stein ditty. So this book gets 3.5 rounded to 4 stars for the inspired stream of un-self-consciousness via Rosie and the delightfully twisty and quirky Han.

The quotable quotes in this one really tickled, which is unusual for a Stein novel. I won't quote any because that would be cheating, and do yourself a favor and stay away from spoiler reviews. You will enjoy this novella a lot more if you do.

Okay...this was some strange, darkly humorous, stream-of-conscious stuff, with an unusual H/h. I don't know what to say other than I loved it.
