Recommends it for: Fans of erotic romance
This was a short (71 pgs.) little scorcher about a newly married couple with some problems. Merrick Vaughn, the hero, is the owner of his own multimillion dollar business and an out-and-out workaholic. He's so desperate to prove himself to his family that he's neglected the one thing that's most important to him--his wife. Merrick's always had to work hard for his successes, unlike his equally successful brother Blade and his sister Lacey. Merrick has always felt like he's been in his brother's ...more

Erotic and sweet romance novella between a husband and wife working it out when work threatens to take over their marriage. For all the sexy stuff, I could really feel the love between H/h - they were fighting for each other and not with each other. Their HEA gladdened my heart. Wish it had been longer though, I'd have loved to see more of them doing boss-secretary sexy things since they work together.

3.5 stars!
Safe romance.

Taking Chloe is the third book in the Vaughn Series. And it's about Merrick and Chloe. Their relationship was mentioned in book 2 but the author didn't elaborate. This is a very intense, compelling, emotional and smokin' hot story about Merrick and Chloe and I was captivated from the moment I started page 1 and I was so engrossed in the story that before I realized I had finished the book in one reading.

So in this book, Merrick and Chloe were happily married for two years or so Chloe thought.

I think this writer and I need some relationship counselling because we just can't see eye to eye! I love her ideas and generally the first half of each book goes really well...until it all just goes pear shaped. Unfortunately, I'm a little bit OCD which means I need to know what happens for completion sake and I have to at least skim to the end.

I liked this better than #1; Lacey's story, but overall I preferred #2; Blade's story. I know that doesn't make sense because I rated #2 as only 2 stars

I liked this one more than the first two. I loved the fact that the main characters were already married and the book started with Chloe deciding to leave Merrick because of his extreme workaholic habits. The book tackled something I rarely see which is the problems that happen between couples after they get married. I liked the characters and Chloe and Merrick were interesting characters though the book was a little too unnecessarily smutty , it needed more talking and less smuttiness , one t ...more

I like this book the lease of the series because they were married and never fully expressed their desires and wants for the other. Chloe never really sat Merrick down and gave him an ultimatum she tried to talk but never pushed. Merrick is scared of the future and his inadequacies amongst his family. After Chloe leaves him it is a wake up call to re-prioritize his life. On a second honeymoon in Hawaii their life is set on better ground because finally both are fully open to the other. Merrick a ...more

I absolutely loved this book! For me, there's nothing better than a couple who've drifted apart finding their way back to each other. It showed a realistic portrayal of how tough marriage can be, and what it takes to get things back on track when things go awry. I thought the author captured the raw emotion beautifully. Once I started, I didn't want to put it down. Thankfully, it was a short read, so I didn't have to!

So far, my favorite in the Vaughn series. Seeing Merrick realize all his mistakes was very nice to see. Usually in romance novels, the guys are almost perfect and in this one it was nice to see Merrick being more "real", making mistakes and having to change things about himself in order to keep Chloe.
Even iffier than the previous one. The only thing remotely resembling a plot was the initial premise of the wife leaving her husband because he was spending too much time at work, only to have him follow her and f**k her silly.

I'm looking forward to the next one, though. What I glimpsed of the two leads in the epilogue of this story, sparks are bound to fly.
