    One thought on “Taking the Score”

    1. 3.5 -4 Stars!!Kate Meader delivered a sexy office romance with a nice vibe of enemies to lovers story that I found really enjoyable. Like all the Brazen books out there “Taking the Score” was for the most part a light read and while the plot is nothing new, the execution was fun and entertaining. This second installment in the series fallows the story of another tall, dark and Texan man, Brody Kane, character we met in the previous book in the series. Texas property tycoon, Brody Kane is a s [...]

    2. 4 StarsBecause she liked it dirty, and the challenge of getting this buttoned-up man to give it to her was almost too much to resist.Emma Strickland is trying to make a fresh start in Chicago after ONCE AGAIN bailing out her addict of a sister. This means leaving her checkered history with men behind and adopting a new and frumpy staid persona. Bye bye short skirts and low cut tops. Hello two sizes too big pantsuits and thrift store shabby. The only exception to her newfound rule is the nights s [...]

    3. 4.5 - "Keep your socks on, Mr. Kane." Stars!Book Two in Kate Meader’s Tall, Dark and Texan series provides a sexy and entertaining few hours of reading, whilst giving the 'rich man/poor woman' trope a slightly different spin.One thing that you always get from Kate’s writing is stellar banter and internal monologues, and that can certainly be said for Brody and Emma. The uptight, strapped down assistant is hiding a lot more underneath her frumpy suits than Brody ever imagined, even in his fan [...]

    4. 4.5 StarsNo problem with women on top, Mr. Kane?""You've always been the boss of me, Ms. Strickland."Who accidentally deleted their published review? This idiot. So allow me to try and sum up my thoughts once more for this wonderful book. le sigh.I adore Kate Meader and everything she writes. Sizzling hot enemies to lovers? She did that flawlessly with Even the Score. I loved that book HARD. It's the one that first began my love affair with this author and everything she writes. I knew right awa [...]

    5. I have no regrets about this one, because Ami and I created another br memory. I didn't care for the characters or the story really, but I have to give the book points for humor and creativity. The sensitve flesh between Emma's thighs clenched and sighed. Her clit bloomed, her nipples pouted, and then her eggs "shrieked in pleasure". Then, Brody's shaft "pulsed inside her like a raging beast snarling at a cage." I've never read a book where sex organs were so active! We kept reading just to find [...]

    6. 3 starsI don't even know what to say about this book. It reminds me of the time I read about Chloe in Forked with Jeanne. I thought the choice of words the author used was very interesting and it was entertaining. Didn't really like the characters though. But it was steamy.

    7. “I’ve had a taste of you, Emma, and it’s hard to imagine going back to before.” Brody Kane has been fantasizing about his prim and proper PA for months. He hired her because he was sure her dowdy appearance would in no way temp him, but after merely a week she fueled all this private fantasies. After the disaster with his ex, he has no desire to complicate his life, and he’s determined to keep his lust to himself. Until he takes an important client to a strip club, and gets the worst l [...]

    15. Boss-assistant romances. That tried and true fantasy of your hot, billionaire boss looking past your frumpy facade to the smokin’ hot heroine underneath it all. Add to that a classic stripper fantasy and you’ve got the makings of a fun and sexy romance. Emma is fighting for agency in her life (which props), even when it drove me crazy: She refuses to be the damsel in distress, even if the entire world (and her sister’s raging coke habit) are against her. She’s working as Brody’s person [...]

    18. This was such a fun read! So entertaining (the burst-out-laughing kind!) and super sexy (the holy-wow-that's-super-hot kind!). I totally enjoyed it!I totally loved nerd-boy Brody and his little geeky nuances. They were just so endearing to me. Loved that connection he had with Emma, the looks, the pull, and after running into each other out of the office, the animosity that ensued and how the hotness level ratcheted up. I mean super hot! *fans self* I really loved Emma's strength and how much sh [...]

    19. 4.5 Sexy StarsThis is my first read in this series and I loved it. The storyline was great, it moved along seamlessly and at a fast pace. I LOVED Brody and Emma!Brody was THE best. He was a total alpha all the way, he was sexy, he was so sweet and caring underneath that tough exterior and he made my heart melt:)Emma, hmmm, I loved her and then I would question her decisions, then I would love her some more, then wonder what the hell she was thinking but overall and by the end, I was in love with [...]

    20. "You've had your hands on my ass and I ground my lady lips into your dick. I think you can call me Emma."I put this advance copy on kindle with the intention of reading it a lot closer to the release date . . . and then I read that blurb and could not hold out. Emma is the organized and repressed assistant to Brody and she is safe. With her dowdy clothes and business only attitude there is no way he will cross the line with this assistant . . d yet she still occupies a lot of his thoughts, espec [...]

    21. 4.5 starsTaking the Score is a fun, sexy, feel-good romance with a low dose of drama and angst. If you're partial to a nerdy billionaire then Broderick Kane III is one to love, whilst his frumpy personal assistant, Emma Strickland is hiding a few surprises behind her unflattering office attire. "You don’t know me, Mr. Kane. PA by day, T & A by night."Strong-willed and with a real sense of determination in doing what she feels right to keep her sister safe, I really liked Emma. Brody has [...]

    22. Originally posted at Booklovers For LifeI’ve only read one other book by Kate Meader, but I freaking LOVED it (and the alpha male) so I was excited to read another book by her! Plus, this is an office romance between a boss and his assistant, a trope I adore, so Taking the Score is pretty much just pure fun and sexiness. If you love your books hot and filled with chemistry, with a dash of humor, you need to get your hands on this book! Brody and Emma rocked my socks off in Taking the Score.He [...]

    23. I LOVE Kate Meader’s books! Period! She surprises me with every book she writes, they are always authentic, original and so damn hot! And this book had a thing I love so much: IT WAS HILARIOUS!! Taking the Score is the story of Brody, the sexy nerd and domineering billionaire and Emma, his personal assistant. They had a secret attraction on each other but the “taboo” of having an “affair” with the boss/employee was a NO NO for both of them. Until Brody got a awful but arousing lapdance [...]

    24. “You’ve had your hands on my ass and I ground my lady lips into your dick. I think you can call me Emma.”Shock enlivened his grim features. Had she really just said “lady lips” out loud? This was not their standard repartee around the officeC received from: NetgalleyRating: 4.5*Trope: Boss/employee, "stripper"Chemistry: Off the charts Scorchio One-Sentence Summary: Brody's "cat lady" personal assistant becomes his personal sex kitten after an encounter at a strip club.Review: Another s [...]

    25. This book was basically amazing. Brody has definitely just earned his way onto my favorite book boyfriends of 2016 list. It's like Kate Meader went down my checklist of favorite traits and created him. Smart? Nerd? Rich? Jaded curmudgeon? Sexy? Alpha? Check. Check. Check. There is something super sexy about the combination of his prim and proper upbringing and his unbridled passion and need for control in the bedroom that really does it for me. Emma was basically the woman I'd like to be. She's [...]

    26. I really really liked this one ! It was so funny and Super hot! She was great a head strong stubborn woman . He was funny and amazing in his ways :) the cat was awesome A really cute fun read:)

    27. Emma Strickland is all about order—keeping order in Brody Kane’s business life. She’s perfection personified as a Personal Assistant by day. But due to the need to help out her sister and pay the debt her sister owes, Emma takes a second job— as a waitress—at a strip club, and prays no one, least of all her boss finds out.Broody Brody has been fantasizing about his buttoned-up, tight-laced assistant for months. Brody thinks Emma is sexy as hell and often finds himself wondering just wh [...]

    28. My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin: witandsin/2016/02Taking the Score is a fabulously wicked and oh-so-fun office romance. Kate Meader knows how to write snappy dialogue and sizzling sexual tension, and both are on full display in this second Tall, Dark, and Texan story.Emma Strickland is no buttoned-up good girl wanting to take a walk on the wild side. No, she’s a down-and-dirty bad girl at heart who has made a new life for herself. I respected Emma for her hard work and strong will. But [...]

    29. Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4.5 starsA hot, crazy sexy romp in which I had to tell myself that normal rules don't apply, that the attraction between these two was so strong they threw all common sense out the window and they simply went for it. Lord save me from women who won't ask or take help even when they really need it and men who want to save them and in all honesty these two both exhibited behaviors that drive me crazy but it somehow worked and worked well. When [...]

    30. This story starts off as a typical boss and assistant romance but Meader definitely spices it up with hot scenes and secrets! Emma works as Brody's assistant by day and at night as a cocktail waitress to help pay off her sisters debt. But no matter how hard she works her sisters debt isn't going down much. When Brody steps in the club to get a dance from her, Emma knows she will be fired but when she finds out Brody would do anything for her she feels like her dreams could come true. Brody has a [...]
