Review & Giveaway - Taking What's His by Diane Alberts

by Diane Alberts


A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint... 
Some lines are meant to be crossed...

One explosive device was all it took to turn Holt Cunningham from ass-kicking Marine to IT technician. Hell, he's still not over it. So when the cute little strawberry blonde at the bar asks him to kiss her, Holt can't resist the temptation of a sexy distraction. Before he knows it, she's blown his mind...and then skipped out the next morning. 

Lydia Thomas never expected things with Holt to go quite that far, but oh, it was worth it. After being far too good for way too long, she was ready to be bad. Except that there's that tiny detail that Lydia kept to herself-Holt just spent the night doing naughty things...with his best friend's little sister. 

One night isn't nearly enough. But with his friendship on the line, how far will Holt go in order to claim what's his?




My Review:

This was a wonderful romance that captured my attention from the first page to the last!  Holt is a sexy yet geeky man who is also silently suffering.  An IED changed his whole world and now he is struggling to accept his new life outside of the Marines.  His way of dealing is meaningless sex with no chance of entanglement.  Looking for his newest one night stand, he is surprised to find himself fascinated by sweet and young Lydia.  Lydia is instantly attracted to Holt, a friend of her overprotective older brother, and throws caution to the wind when she agrees to one night of scorching hot sex.  That night changes everything for these two and they now must deal with the aftermath.  The sexual chemistry throughout this book is off the charts LAVA HOT.  This is such a well written and engrossing story that I read it in one sitting.  I am hoping that there will be more stories featuring some of the interesting secondary characters.  I highly recommend this love story and give it 5 stars! ~Booklover Sue
