Book one of the exciting Taken Series will slip you into the world of drug cartels, DEA operations, and the never-waiving love between Arden and Lucy.

Arden Jones is a DEA agent and has seen and done it all. His transfer to a desk job is finally in reach. But, when his good friend is brutally murdered he must go after the cartel one more time while protecting the ones he loves.

Lucy Farris arranges flowers for a living, lives in a quaint house in the outskirts of Seattle, and has two adorable Siamese cats. The last thing she expects is to be kidnapped and used as bait to by the cartel to hunt the man she loves.

Read on for my thoughts on Taken By Love.  No true spoilers, promise.

Taken By Love is a short, enjoyable story.

You really have the basics of the story in the synopsis.  What else can I tell you?

I loved these characters.  Well defined and interesting.  Lucy is spunky, fun and really the gem in this beginning of the series.

And truthfully, this is such a short story that I really don’t want to go much deeper.  It’s a really good story.  I will definitely pick up the next installment in this series.  Because I need to know what’s going to happen next. – you’ll want to know too.

A truly lovely couple, come along for Arden and Lucy’s story.  You won’t regret the time well spent.

*I received an e-ARC of Taken By Love from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not change what I think of this novel.*
