ARC: Taking the Lead - Cecilia Tan (Secrets of a Rock Star #1)

Taking The Lead by Cecilia Tan

Publication Date: January 26, 2016
Genre: Erotic Romance


When the rich and famous come out to play, nothing is off-limits . . . 

Everyone knows Ricki Hamilton as the icy heiress living in a billion-dollar mansion, high up in the Hollywood Hills. But few realize that behind the gilded gates, Ricki is the mistress of LA's most exclusive private club. A place where no fantasy is forbidden and no one goes unsatisfied-except for Ricki. If she had her way, she'd leave the business behind . . . until she meets the one man with the power to change her mind.

The hottest rock star in the world, Axel Hawke, has the requisite sexy look and bad-boy reputation. Yet even his biggest fans have no clue just how decadently dangerous he can be. From the moment he meets Ricki, he knows there is no other woman who will satisfy him. He can feel the heat hiding beneath her cool demeanor and he's determined to stoke her flame.

Together Ricki and Axel indulge their every desire. The deeper they go, the more she craves. Submitting to Axel opens her eyes, and for the first time Ricki knows exactly what she wants. All she has to do is take it . . .

Review: This book really has me feeling the feels. I didn't know how I felt about the whole situation of how they met but their romance truly got to me. They fight for what they want even if it is in a somewhat aggressive manner and yet, it was a beautifully put story.

When I first read Cecilia Tan, I read book 8 of the Daron Guitar Chronicles. I'll admit, I wasn't the biggest fan but I was still a fan. When it came to reading Taking the Lead, I knew that I absolutely had to put this series by her on my TBR list. Especially with the teaser at the end. You feel me? 

So maybe I cried every now and then because Cecilia knows how to wrench your heart out and squeeze the blood out so you don't know how to breathe anymore. Then she puts it back into your chest and tries to mend it again. Damn it. I've caught feelings. >.< What do I do? Help me get rid of them. 

I truly loved this book. It has sexiness, it has love, and it has the feels. It is really all you can ask for within a book and Cecilia Tan delivered it to us. I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars. Don't mess with my rating because it truly was a beautiful story. It almost possessed me. ;) 

'Like a demon...?'
'I mean, by you. I feel very much yours, Axel.'"

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
