Review: Takedown by Stacey Kennedy

Title: Takedown
Author: Stacey Kennedy
Source: Received from author in exchange for an honest review

U.S. Marshal Wyatt Tanning has been on the hunt for a killer on the run in Turks and Caicos. A week into the investigation, he has absolutely nothing to show for his efforts. Feeling defeated he returns to Castillo Resort to drown his frustrations. There he meets UFC fighter, Rye Daniels. Now the resort’s bartender, Rye recognizes a man that has been beaten down, but he also senses a shared attraction that is hard to ignore. Wyatt might not be ready to step out from behind the shadow of lies, but Rye will stop at nothing to unleash the beast within.


First, I have to say that I don't normally read stuff quite like this. This was my first male/male romance. Ok, maybe romance isn't the right word. Erotica. Stacey Kennedy is one of my favorite authors though, so when I heard about this book I was intrigued. I didn't know if I'd like it, but I have a pretty open mind so I thought, why not?

It was HOT. I mean, Stacey Kennedy is the queen of writing HOT scenes and apparently it doesn't matter if it's male/female, male/male, etc... I liked how both men were the tough macho types. Honestly, if one of the men had feminine mannerisms (you know what I'm talking about), I don't think I could have gotten into it. I also liked how Wyatt tried to deny that he had any sexual interest in the same sex.

This is a very short novella – meant to be read in one setting, because you just can't sit it down and walk away saving the rest for later. Now, since it is so short, there is no time for romance. It's all about passion the whole way through. This book is pretty graphic, so definitely for the 18+ crowd. If you have any interest at all in this type of thing, give this book a try!
