GENRE: Contemporary Romance


A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint... Why play nice when you can be naughty? Jessica Bauer is aces when it comes to security, but the PR side? Not so much. Now she has a chance to take over Knight Securities―if she plays nice with the next client. Unfortunately, that client happens to be Declan McCabe. And it's too bad someone wants him dead, because after he broke her heart ten years ago, Jessica would have cheerfully murdered him herself. Declan has taken his dad's not-so-reputable company and turned it around, and in the process, he's attracted the attention of some vicious killers. The only perk is being reunited with Jessica, who Declan still wants so much he can barely see straight. But Jessica has a plan of her own. She'll protect Declan. She'll have unbelievably hot sex with him. And when the job is finished, she'll move on. Except that this time, Declan isn't so willing to walk away...


Taking Control by Nina Croft is the third book in the Babysitting the Billionaire series.  It can be read as a stand alone, but it would be great if you read the first two books in the series.  I enjoyed this installment, but not as much as I did the previous installments.
This is a hot and sizzling story about having a second chance at love.  Taking Control is the story of Jessica Bauer and Declan McCabe. Jessica was introduced in the previous installments and I was glad to see her getting her own story and what a story it is.  She is second in command to the CEO of Knight Security.  Jessica is a bad-ass no nonsense female who has no interest in dating much to the chagrin of her male colleagues.  However, under this tough exterior it is clear that she is vulnerable and is afraid to get emotionally involved.  The reason for her apparent bad ass attitude became clear when Declan McCabe re-appeared in her life.
Declan is the CEO of McCabe Industries. He became the target for assassins when he uncovered a money laundering scheme within the organisation. In a bid to protect his life, his father Rory McCabe hired Knight Securities to provide security for him. He did this with the knowledge that Jessica worked with the security company.
Declan and Jessica have an explosive past.  As teenagers, they were hot and raunchy and not in control of their hormones.  Jessica was always getting into trouble and as a result Declan’s father had them separated as he felt that she was not a good influence on his son. Jessica was devastated when things ended between her and Declan.   As mature adults, they are a far cry from what they were as teenagers, but the one thing that has not changed is their feelings for each other.  Their reunion  is even more explosive than their past.
The interaction between Declan and Jessica is emotional and hot and readers are given insight to their fears and insecurities.  This makes it easy to make a connection with them.

Taking Control is a fast paced story that pulls its readers in and keeps them entertained to the end.  It is an easy and enjoyable read that will make you keep turning the pages as you are eager to see the outcome.   If you love second chance romance that sizzles and that keeps you entertained then Taking Control is the book for you.

DISCLOSURE: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
