Taking Him

Ellie Fox is a graphic computer game designer in New Zealand, with a new job in Tokyo. Hunter Chase was Ellie's brother's best friend and the man whom Ellie has had a crush on since she was a child. Both had less than ideal childhoods, but Hunter's left him decidedly bent, sexually. He had to remain in control and did not like people touching him. Could Ellie convince him to look at her as a woman instead of a child? Could Hunter overcome his need to shut others out of his life?
VERDICT With characters you care about and some scenes that will make you sweat, this title is definitely sexy and some might say kinky. Ashenden is a New Zealand author who writes light romances for Entangled and dark, quirky stories for Samhain. She has just signed a three-book deal with St. Martin's, a sign that she is obviously gaining in popularity and is an author to watch.
