Publisher's Summary

Michael Sebastian thought that 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.

Contains mature themes.

    Story
    "A gay literary breath of fresh air."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Takeover to be better than the print version?

    Yes.


    What other book might you compare Takeover to, and why?

    No. Admittedly, I have not read much gay literature but this book had nudged me rather forcibly into buying more and more gay books. A triumph.


    Have you listened to any of Iggy Toma’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    It was my first Iggy Toma performance. And I hope not my last. It is right there with the best narration I have come across. Well paces and distinctively articulated.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The interwoven love story was compelling and seductive.

    "I absolutely loved Iggy Toma’s narration!"
    What did you like best about Takeover? What did you like least?

    I liked the narration the best, the middle and very end of the story least.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the boss falling for a subordinate trope, and I especially love the whole one night stand turns into something more trope, so I was pre-disposed to loving this.

    I absolutely loved Iggy Toma’s narration of the story! Once again, Toma blends different character voices and situations brilliantly. I also loved the kinky dominating sex, even when it made me all squirmy.

    What didn’t work for me so much was the “mystery” with the board member, which was interesting until it came to no conclusion, which I didn’t understand at all. I mean, I would have loved to have seen a final confrontation. The story also stalls midway through and could have been greatly aided by cutting about an hour and a half of gristle from the meat.

    Bottom Line: The narration is rock solid, the story less so, but still recommended for those who like a little kink with their business politics.

    "Great book"

    I loved the book and the story was good though a little short in the ending. The characters was good and I felt as I got to know them. The voice reading was very clear and read with feelings.

    "Well worth a read."

    So many M/M romances are thin on plot. Takeover has all the elements - engaging story, characters with some complexity, plus good 'romance'. So nice to find a book in this genre that isn't a basic Cinderella story. I hope to see more books by this author.

    "Disappointed with narration and storyline"

    This was my first gay erotica novel, and I thought the sexual parts of it were hot as hell and they’re really all that kept me engaged. This is the first book I’ve fast forwarded before, or listened to quickly, to get through the political correctness BS I felt like was going on. I get that coming out is a real struggle for people, but I thought I was getting a novel that treated the issue as normal instead of pressing on how unwelcomed it is in today’s world and the struggle of it. I was looking for something a lot lighter and hotter, and with a straighter sounding narrator. The narration made it complicated for me to enjoy. And both are what kept me from buying the next in the series. It wasn’t captivating, and the hot parts were few and far between. Very disappointed.
