ARC Book Review:
Taken Home by Ruth Cardello is the third book in Lone Star Burn series but the first that I have read in this series. While part of a series, it can be read as a standalone but still, I would recommend that you read it in order because there are many references to characters from previous books but somehow made me realize that it would have been better had I read the previous books first.

The story features a shy heroine and an alpha. Both carry past hurts and emotional baggage and the book takes us on their journey of self discovery and the realization of love for each other.

I have read and enjoyed Ruth Cardello's books in the past and here also her writing is expressive and engaging but still not as good as I witnessed in some of her other books.

The dialogues at places feel awkward and unrealistic. Also the settings feel forced at times. The characterization is good and I could related to Chelle and Mason but some of their actions just didnt gel.

All in all, Taken Home by Ruth Cardello is quick and passionate romance that can be enjoyed on a lazy afternoon. 3.5 out of 5 to it and recommended to romance lovers above the age of eighteen. The story had potential but the execution fails at places which made it a one-time read for me.




I received the book from the publishers via Netgalley and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
