Review for Taking the Lead by Cecilia Tan

Taking The Lead by Cecilia Tan

Date of Publication: January 26, 2016


When the rich and famous come out to play, nothing is off-limits . . .

Everyone knows Ricki Hamilton as the icy heiress living in a billion-dollar mansion, high up in the Hollywood Hills. But few realize that behind the gilded gates, Ricki is the mistress of LA's most exclusive private club. A place where no fantasy is forbidden and no one goes unsatisfied-except for Ricki. If she had her way, she'd leave the business behind . . . until she meets the one man with the power to change her mind.

The hottest rock star in the world, Axel Hawke, has the requisite sexy look and bad-boy reputation. Yet even his biggest fans have no clue just how decadently dangerous he can be. From the moment he meets Ricki, he knows there is no other woman who will satisfy him. He can feel the heat hiding beneath her cool demeanor and he's determined to stoke her flame.

Together Ricki and Axel indulge their every desire. The deeper they go, the more she craves. Submitting to Axel opens her eyes, and for the first time Ricki knows exactly what she wants. All she has to do is take it . . .

Kim's Review

Cecilia Tan's "Taking the Lead" is a good read. This story was good but it had one thing that made it a 3.5 and not a 5 star. I really wanted to give it 5 too. The story took me in and grabbed me from the start Axel is a rock god and helping out a friend with being her date to the Grammy's. Socialite Rickanna Hamilton is going on a "double date" with her friend Sarah AKA singer Sakura and her "date" Axel Hawke to the Grammy's. Her date is a co-worker of hers and ends up trashed in the limo and falls out of the car when they arrive. From there their lives turn upside down. A publicity stunt turns everyone around with what they want in their lives. Follow them through the twists and turns of life and what has happened in their pasts to make them who they are.

3.5 out of 5 stars
