ARC Review of Takeover: The Complete Series by Lana Grayson
This is one dark , erotic and terrifying romance novel that has so many layers to it , that it keeps you on the edge of your seat. There is so many elements to this story -kidnap, rape, murder, BDSM, love, romance, lies, passion, dangerous, wild sex, secrets, and most of all for the heroine, Sarah, Truth. This story has so many twists and turns that you wont know who to trust or who to hate really. What you will know is that Sarah is someone to root for and to want to grab and smother in love and to protect. That I how I felt when I read this story…
This is a ménage romance but not your average run of the mill ménage romance. There is no cheating and it involves the 3 brothers Bennett brothers-Nicholas, the eldest son, Max the middle brother and Reed, the youngest brother. Sarah Atwood is stalked and then harassed and then brutalized by three Bennett brothers who are told by their father, Darius, what to do to Sarah and when to do it. Darius is a monster, one you want to see dead but one whose death you want to come slow and painfully. He is the puppet master and he controls his sons like they are on his strings and his sons have no will to think when he is around. The more you read about Nicholas, Max and Reed, at first you hate them but then as the story is fleshed out, it becomes more of a love/hate relationship. And Sarah, oh the poor girl. She lost her father and two brothers and then her mother was lost in a way that you really cant come back from .Sarah is in essence alone and is trying to save her father’s company from the monster Darius and his sons’ all by herself. She is a strong young woman and I feel so bad for her. She has no one yet everything done to her made me cringe. Yet Sarah continues to take it all to make sure she keeps her father’s company and to spite Darius and his sons’. I wanted to applaud her strength.
As she ends up having to spend time with the sons, Sarah ends up developing a bond with Nick. She also does develop some sort of something with the other brothers but the true bond comes out with Nick and this leads to some very interesting developments between not only these two main characters but the others within the story. This sets up for a huge play down the storyline and a fantastic ending. I have to say, there are some dark and intense tones to this story that made it alittle hard for me to read at times but this is a dark romance and being that’s the case, I just took it as part of the story and loved the whole story and loved this book. I hope the author writes stories for Max and Reed—I would love to see them get their HEA, especially since their home life was so horrible. They deserve to find happiness. This book was a study in the dark side of human nature and how true love wins over dark .
My rating: 4.9 stars ****
