Chris Sinclair broke Erica’s heart. The only woman he has ever loved. Since that awful moment he has spent every waking moment thinking about her and wishing he could have another chance.

Erica cannot forget the love she felt at the hands of Chris, but her memories are plagued by his betrayal after he took her innocence. When they meet again, the attraction is as strong as ever. But Erica refuses to give herself easily to the man who broke her heart.

When Chris’s father is rushed to the hospital, Erica and Chris learn how quickly life can change. Instead of dwelling on the past they move into a future together. But how long can they last? With Erica’s desires increasing, can she find it in her heart to completely trust Chris or will they be doomed to repeat the past?

I loved the first book in this series, Blaze’s Second Chance. This one was no different. As with the first one, Taking His Woman is a second chance at love story. My favorite kind. As the title suggests, Chris Sinclair is taking back the heart that he broke when he scorned the love that Erica unselfishly gave to him.

Erica gave her innocence to Chris, a notorious playboy. Then, afraid of the powerful desire he feels for her, he pushes Erica out of his life by scoffing at her feelings. “It’s just sex”, he told her. Erica was horrified at the way he used her…so she ran. Yet, Chris never forgot the blazing passion they shared.

Despite his brutal betrayal, Erica has stayed true to Chris these last four years. Now, they are reunited and find that the old feelings are still there. After a bit of groveling they give in to those feelings and try to rebuild the relationship that Chris destroyed. But Chris has awakened a dark desire in Erica. A desire that she can’t ignore yet neither can she express to her lover.

I loved this book. I enjoyed how humble the once arrogant Alpha male was in his remorse. He was desperate to win back what he once threw away. Yet, the author never showed him as weak. Nor did Erica ask him to grovel. I liked that. She was a smart gal who saw her chance at the man she wanted. And she took it.

I enjoyed this steamy read. The sex was hot. But it was the fabulous characters and the second chance at love plot that made this book worth reading. Hey, my time is valuable so I’d rather not waste it on a story that’s just about sex. No worries about that with this book. Taking His Woman is a wonderfully tender story.

I’d recommend this book to everyone who likes a little romance with their smexy.
