I read Shades Of Grey by Pruitt last year and really enjoyed it, so I jumped at a chance to read Taken and I'm glad I did. This is a fantastic PI story with a lot of hot and steamy action going on both in and out of the bedroom.

Yeah. I said hot and steamy.

Like sizzlin' hot and steamy.

Melts ice, hot and steamy.

Have I mentioned hot and steamy?

OK.

Frankie is hired to find the cousin of a lawyer in the DA's office. But this is more than just a missing person's case as they find out through a little s

Wow! Talk about your hot romantic suspense book! Frankie Post's debut in L. M. Pruitt's Taken, is DEFINITELY spicy suspense! I'll admit, I had a little bit of a hard time following the first part of the book....but, I think that's in part to the type of book I had finished before hand. I was still reflecting on it. But, once I pushed past, sat back, and focused, this book took me to unexpected places, and set me down in the heart of Frankie and Jack's story.

Frankie is a P.I. hired to track down

L.M. Pruitt does it again! Ms. Pruitt knows how to combine a great story, amazing characters & just the right amount of wit to make me want more & more. Taken was funny, sarcastic, witty & so hot that it almost singed my fingers! Frankie & Jack are perfect together and their passion & love ignite the page (Kindle in my case, lol) without being too sweet. Their characters are strong, independent, cunning & smart but still have a vuln

There were so many aspects of this story that I enjoyed I don't know where to start. Let me begin with my final opinion, there really isn't anything that I would change about the characters, their depictions, the style of the story, the narrative or the mystery. This is a well done tale. I found Frankie and Jack to be interesting, vulnerable but very tough characters with great dialogue and charismatic personalities. Their backstory and current case were solid and compelling. Monster wa

I'll read the sequel. wonder what the statute of limitations is on attempted murder anyway?

Another excellent book by LM Pruitt. The story has everything I need to spend my Sunday on the sofa. Smart witty likeable characters (I want to be Frankie) clever dialogue, action and twists in the tale..... oh, and hot men, which means a healthy dose of smut! PI Frankie Post and her sexy detective boyfriend Jack Waters try to solve the case of a kidnapped woman, sounds like a simple story, but thanks to the twists, it isn't.

My thoughts:
Once again L.M. Pruitt has created characters that are amazing. Frankie is fantastic! She is smart, tough, stubborn, and loyal to the few she counts as friends. She is my favorite character in the story.
The story itself is wonderfully entertaining, nicely paced and well written. The plot is intriguing and suspenseful.
I truly enjoyed the book. The ending SCREAMS for a sequel....

L.M. Pruitt has been reading since before she can remember, and writing nearly as long. She fell in love with New Orleans after spending one week there, and visits the city as often as her schedule permits--which isn't nearly often enough. She is the best selling author of the Jude Magdalyn series, the Moon Rising series, the Frankie Post series, and the Winged series. She makes her home in Florid ...more
