Review of Miss Taken by Cleo Scornavacca

Love........................The Ultimate Loss of Control

Rain and Raven Medici are identical twins. Although they come from a loving close-knit family their childhoods couldn't have been more different. Raven went to school and was exposed freely to the outside world. Rain on the other hand was born with a blood disorder and denied many normal childhood experiences.

Once grown, Raven becomes a lawyer at their dad's firm Kane & Medici in NYC. Rain along with her only childhood friend Tommy Conte, builds a very successful business as professional photographers. Traveling between Europe and Manhattan, and enjoying a world that was kept from her, Rain vows never to be controlled again.

Dominick Kane is a product of his upbringing. He's powerful, self-assured and knows he can achieve anything he desires. Nothing gets in his way. There is only one

thing he has ever failed at. A relationship with his father Vincent Kane. Upon his father's death, Dominick vows revenge. The events he sets in motion put him on a

collision course he himself will be unable to control.

In a bizarre twist of fate, Dominick kidnaps Raven as part of his plan for revenge. Only to discover afterward, he has taken Rain by mistake. Rain knows she can never survive being confined again. So she strikes a bargain with the devil and agrees to help Dominick get back what he feels rightly belongs to him. His father's share of Kane & Medici.

Dominick decides to use the strong attraction growing between Rain and himself to control her in every way imaginable. Too bad no one ever taught Dominick you can't control the heart. Nothing could have prepared him for the effect Rain would have on his.

Will this plan of revenge turn into unconditional love? Or will Dominick and Rain's need for control ultimately destroy them and any possibly chance for a real future


*** I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review***

I love Indie authors, but sometimes I am a bit skeptical and I don't know what to expect when I read their work. This book is fantastic! It was not what I was expecting and it was not the same ole', same ole' in the NA genre! This book is a great, ugly romance that will make you throw your E-reader against the wall.

Like the blurb says twins Raven and Rain Medici are identical. Other than their looks they are total opposites. Their dad is a big time lawyer who is very overprotective especially with Rain. On her way to Capri, Italy she is abducted by Vincent Kane for ransom. Little does he know he has taken the wrong sister.

Rain Medici just wants to get to Capri for a small vacation from her family so she can get some great pictures for her upcoming show and relax. On her way to Capri something goes terribly wrong.

Vincent Kane wants revenge and he thinks he has kidnapped Raven, the lawyer so that he can get his share of their dad's law firm Medici and Kane. He is so hell bent on this that he doesn't care who he hurts....until he meets Rain.

They form a very unlikely, and sometimes very unrealistic, relationship. As the days grow longer, their bond grows stronger and we see a very beautiful and dangerous relationship.

Vincent is striking, dangerous and romantic. He is so intense. He is Christian Grey times 100! His intentions with Rain are malicious at first, but as their relationship grows it becomes more gentle and loving.

I enjoyed seeing the battle of wills between the two of them. They constantly tested each others boundaries.

Before I knew it I was in his arms against the bathroom wall. Then he got close, too close. "Do you want me to show you or are you going to behave?" My lips slightly part, my breath hitches and I stare into his eyes. I say nothing.
"Good, now get ready for bed." He grins and lowers me
my feet slowly before he releases me and leaves the room.
I am so affected. Shit! That can't happen again.

This is a great love story. Not very conventional, but its great! The only hang-up I have is the ending! CLIFFHANGER!!! ARGH! But, I can't wait to read the next book!!! This book gets a 4.5! Great book!
