Acquisition is the first book in the Takeover Duet.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this book. It kept me on my toes most of the time and filled my heart with hope! It was riveting, thought provoking, and it gives a girl confidence. At least it did for me!
Lauren Bradley is a very accomplished young woman, but even with her success she has never lost sight of where she came from or where she’s headed. She is a well-rounded character with smarts, sex appeal, and grit. No doubt she’s facing an uphill battle in the next installment yet to come, but I have no reservation that she’ll meet this dilemma and others head on and with determination.
Antonio is all kinds of alpha with a badass persona. At first he rubbed me a little bit the wrong way, but slowly won my heart over. I believe his intentions are sincere and his heart is in the right place, but I’m not so sure he knows the correct path to lead him the right way. Time will tell!
The supporting character cast isn’t really all that big, but one that bares mentioning is Tara, Lauren’s friend. This girl cracked me right the hell up. She has a good head on her shoulders, but seems to be able to let loose and go with the flow. Everyone needs a friend like this to keep us from becoming too serious and stuffy. Another supporting character that I’ll mention is this Trent that works for Lauren. I’m not so sure about this dude just yet and I’m sure we’ll see more of him in the next book. I’m kind of hoping he ends up the recipient of a major ass beating.
Sorry peeps, but this is a cliffy. I know, I know, this is unusual for a Chelle Bliss book, but rest assured, there’s more to come. This one was funny, suspenseful, and sexy as fuck! The dialogue flows and the storyline compelling. Acquisition was effortless to read with many twists and turns that the tension was so thick you could cut it with a knife. Great read!
