Kurzbeschreibung

An exciting new voice in romance proves that giving in can be the best way to let go...

Michael Sebastian thought Curacao would be the perfect place to have a little fun in the sun--and between the sheets. So far, no one has struck his interest, until Sam Anderson walks into the bar. With one look at his tense body and expensive suit, Michael knows that this is a man in need of release. And Michael is more than willing to lend a hand.

Shattered by the most intense sex he's ever had, Sam has to face the facts--one night with a handsome, dominating stranger is all he gets before returning to the closet he's been suffocating in for years. But when Sam starts his new job as the CEO of a failing technology company, he discovers that Michael is one of his new employees.

While Michael is desperate for another night with Sam, he knows he shouldn't get involved with his boss, let alone another man who can't accept who he is. But as they're forced to work together to save the company, the desire sparking between them becomes impossible to ignore...

Not bad, but not exceptionally good, either. Nice characters, nice story. The developping love between the MCs is less love and more sex. Some dialogues outside of "the bedroom" would have been good...

Endlich mal wieder eine neue Autorin in der M/M Szene, die ein von Anfang bis Ende super gutes Buch schreiben kann. Auch hier fieber ich der Fortsetzung entgegen.

HASH(0x8fd8dd68) von 5 Sternen A Great M/M Romance! 21. August 2014
Von Andrea T - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Imagine a story in which two strangers on vacation meet in a bar. They feel an instant, intense spark, and they act on. That sparks leads to a night of passion neither has ever experienced. But it's for one night only. They each go home, resigned to remember that night, knowing it will never happen again. Until...Monday morning rolls around, and the two realize they are now working together, one as boss and the other as employee. Though they know they shouldn't continue - it's not professionally ethical, they can't resist. It's a story we romance readers are very familiar with, yes?

Now remember that the two lovers are both men. That changes things up a bit. What I loved about Takeover was the author didn't necessarily write a "gay" story, it is a love story. I happen to enjoy m/m romance, but after realizing that what I've read is erotic m/m romance, I felt a bit guilty, like maybe I was only into it for the thrills and not the real heart of the story. If I remember correctly, Takeover is the first m/m romance I've read that is more mainstream, and the fact it read as a romance that happened to contain two male leads was really lovely.

That both main characters are men is just a fact, though it does lend to extra complications, which realistic, though unfortunate. Not only must Michael and Sam contend with a frowned-upon workplace romance, but they must also deal with the ramifications of homophobia. Michael, though not overly chatty about his personal life, is open. He's not had any big complications in the workplace, other than being cheated out of his position in the company by his former, closeted lover and company co-founder. Sam, though, is deeply, deeply closeted. As a CEO, he's seen and heard the slurs from his colleagues, and knows that if he should ever be exposed, the job offers will stop. Sam has also experienced brutality from homophobes, which gives him the extra incentive to keep his sexual preference private. Michael refuses to be with another man who refuses to be open, Sam doesn't see a way to be out, along with safe and employed. It's an extremely complicated, heart-wrenching situation. One I believe the author navigated very well.

Besides the workplace and social aspects of Takeover, it was such a good, sexy love story! Michael and Sam are so perfectly matched in this department. Sam is so wound-up by life and work, and as a man in near-constant power, he seeks a safe place to let go of his power, to submit to pleasure and the pleasure he gets from pain, both of which Michael is only too happy to give. Michael's a dominant lover and caring lover, always knowing exactly how much Sam needs. I've struggled before with reading about D/s relationships. This aspect only applies to the bedroom in this case, and I'm not sure it would even be technically classified as such. It wasn't about control or demands as much as it was about each man's preferences and giving that in a loving, respectful manner. Maybe I'm thinking too hard, but at any rate, I loved it.

By the way, Takeover was HOT. Damn.

Takeover was such a great story. The more I've considered since reading it, the higher I regard this story. Both Michael and Sam were dynamic, compelling characters whose attributes and flaws contributed to creating well-rounded men. I believed in them as a couple, wanted them to find a way to be wholly together. I understood the divide between them and what stood in their way as a couple. I thought how they grew and worked to find a way was believable and romantic. And I loved the ending. Takeover was an excellent standalone romance.

Based on the sample at the back of my eARC, it seems there will be another story in this same world, Just Business. This seems to be more of a companion story, and I'll say that I can't wait for more.

Favorite Quotes

Michael stroked Sam's jaw with his thumb. "If anything I do gets to be too much, say 'yellow' and I'll slow down. Say 'red' and I'll stop. Understand?"
A safeword? Lightning ran through Sam's veins. He couldn't be that lucky. "Yes." Sam leaned into Michael's touch. "And if I want more?"
"You beg for it."

"Sam." Michael whispered into his ear.
"Hmm?"
"Did you find the answer?"
The question startled Sam. He said nothing and Michael didn't pry. He rolled slightly to turn off the lamp on the side table.
In the darkened room, Sam traced the lines of Michael's face in the faint glow from the windows.
Trust. Security. Completion.
This was what came after pain, after pleasure, this was what Michael gave him.
He spoke his answer against Michael's collarbone. "You give me peace."
Michael didn't speak, just held him tighter. Which was exactly perfect.

HASH(0x8fd8ddbc) von 5 Sternen Loved it! 6. Februar 2015
Von Bea LaRocca - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really, really enjoyed Takeover! It was very well written which made it a pleasure to read as well as enabling me to focus on the actual story. The story itself was both honest and realistic and I could easily imagine people that I know in the real world having similar experiences and battling the same personal demons.
Sam and Michael meet in Curacao while they’re both on vacation. The one night stand that they share was supposed to be just that. No strings attached. No last names or numbers exchanged. However, when they return home, the heat of their shared encounter still lingers with them both, in their memories and in their dreams.
The last thing that either of them expects is to see each other again, so when Michael learns that Sam is the new CEO at the company that he’d founded, he couldn’t be more surprised. Sam is no less surprised but determined to maintain a professional decorum despite the attraction that he still feels for Michael.
They spend weeks working together, building both a good working relationship and a close friendship, but their attraction for each other still simmers just beneath the surface. No one knows Sam like Michael does, knows what he wants and what he needs. When they finally give into that attraction again, the consequences are potentially devastating, putting both their budding friendship and their jobs in jeopardy.
If that wasn’t more than enough to deal with, they are each struggling with trust issues because of past experiences, and the choice to make life-altering decisions that could affect both of their futures, whether they’re together or apart.
I loved how these two men gradually overcame their insecurities and learned to communicate openly and honestly with each other. I’m not a fan of BDSM per se nor am I a tech wiz so some of the content of the story was beyond me. However, this in no way detracted from my enjoyment of this story. I am honestly looking forward to seeing these two again in a sequel.

My Review:
I'll be honest, I went into this book not knowing this author's writing and expecting it to be "okay"...OMG, I was so wrong. This book was phenomenal. Something about the story line and these two men just resonated with me and I really loved their story.

The book begins at the vacation destination of Curacao with Michael who hasn't been able to find anyone to pique his interest the entire time he's been there although he's had plenty of offers. He's pretty much given up on getting laid this vacation when Sam walks through the door in his suit, looking a bit beat down by life. Michael's interest is piqued and they have an incredibly hot night...until Michael has to leave the next day.

He never expects to see Sam again, so it's a shock when Sam is heading up the team taking over the company Michael began and subsequently lost because he slept with the wrong guy. Not a great way to start their working relationship especially since Sam is the new CEO, in charge of Michael. That part of the story line isn't all that new...I happen to love "one-night-stands who come back to haunt the mc's" trope. But this one had so much more to it. The company is a tech company that's been in the middle of corporate political mechanisms for way too long. Michael has been there from the very beginning and is trying to do everything he can to protect the company and his people.

Sam isn't a normal suit...it's not all about the bottom-line for him, like most corporate types. He honestly wants to make the company better which is why he's so good at his job. He also maintains the respect from his peers because of it...and the fact that he's never come out of the closet. He's very aware that if he does so, he can kiss his career that he loves and is good at goodbye. There are deep story lines for both characters and I loved all that backstory and their conflict. There's no winning here...for either of them if their relationship is revealed.

The corporate story line worked for me and I'm totally clueless when it comes to tech or the corporate world, but I loved all the intrigue and political mechanisms and just how the entire story unfolded within those parameters. It was just a good book all the way around.

One note...I know some readers have issues with BDSM and there's nothing in the story description that hints at this, but this book does have some incredibly sexy BDSM scenes in it. I'm talking hot...seriously, these scenes were fantastic and so darn sexy. But if that's a hot button for you, then just be aware.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

HASH(0x8fd905dc) von 5 Sternen Nice story but kind of boring 19. August 2014
Von disturbinglynic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love the story here, but I think the execution was lacking. I caught my mind wandering more than once.

I actually really loved the interactions and the chemistry between Michael and Sam. I did feel like they had something special. They are like two halves of a whole. I love how Michael is basically afraid of anything in a suit but is attracted to the suit and wants to dominate the suit in bed. I love how Sam is the suit but wants to be dominated in bed. Their one night stand is something the two of them have been looking for. It’s perfect for them and it hurts when they think they won’t be able to have this again.

Big surprise for them when Sam is the CEO coming in to save Michael’s company. It’s fun to see how thrown they are by this. There is so much bad and so much good with this. Here’s the chance for them to have more than just the one night, but at the same time, Michael has this fear of suits and Sam is stuck in the closet. They try to keep things between them friendly at work, and they do. It’s nice to see the friendship form between the two of them. I love this friendship between them. Stress, however, and desire win out, and they find themselves in bed, or rather the shower, once more.

The biggest problem, aside from Sam being Michael’s boss, is that Sam is not ready to come out. He’s seen people in his line of work come out and then never be given a job again. As much as he wants a relationship with Michael, he can’t let himself have one.

And that’s where the biggest problem of the book is. I understand that Sam is in the closet because of his job, but every time he is with Michael or thinking about Michael, he is constantly thinking about how this is a bad thing to do because of his job. It’s incredibly repetitive, and incredibly annoying. There’s just so much of it. Even Michael has his moments of talking about how wrong it is. The story would have been so much better if it had been less repetitive.

Something else that bugged me, and this bugs me in all things I read, is come swallowing, but then using a condom for anal. This is the most frustrating thing because this is still not safe. Either be safe or don’t be safe. Don’t do this.

Overall, I really did enjoy the story itself, I just found the writing to be repetitive and dull. Even the sex scenes, which I did enjoy, were kind of boring. Enjoyable story, but something that didn’t really hold my attention.

*Spoiler free*

Zabo hooked me from the start! This is an awesome M/M romance. The pages sizzled with passion and heat. I read the entire book in one sitting - it was that great.

Michael was fantastic, from his parrot shirt to his tender moments. I felt the same for Sam, in his pristine suits and his hidden need. Zabo really allowed both of these characters to blossom and grow, with great attention to detail. Including a compelling backstory! The corporate aspect of the book brought in a wonderful plot, and I can't wait to read the next in this series.

Favorite character: Sam
Favorite scene: When Michael is out for a walk, and Sam 'runs' into him.
Favorite quote: "Good man."
Would I recommend this? Absolutely, to fans of M/M romance - who love heat.
