Review
Ok…before I start with my review about “Miss Taken” – I have to tell you all a little story ---

Once upon a time, a book-a-holic was asked to read a story which sounded rather interesting and while (we will call her “Star”) Star was reading, she noticed that there were misspellings

Rain and Raven Medici are identical twins but are completely opposite in character. While Raven was exposed to the outside world, Rain wasn't, she was born with a blood disorder and denied many normal childhood experiences. Growing up, Raven became a lawyer working with her father on her father's firm, Kane & Medici, and Rain with her childhood friend Tommy Conte, built a very successful business as professional photographers.

Dominic is blinded by his need for rev

I love this book; I’m tempted to put this review down and go read it again. But alas, duty calls.

This book pulled me in from the beginning and held me until it chucked me out kicking and screaming at the end.

I LOVE Rain! This is a fact; she’s feisty, she takes no rubbish from anyone. This girl is kidnapped (Miss Taken identity) held against her will and still manages to give as good as she gets. I love the way she also stands up to Domin

Oh yeah sorry moving on, the story was really good. The plot twist was very well executed and characters very well defined. It's a shock to me but I read this identical twins theme for the first time and i pretty much loved it. The whole credit goes to the author, the story was so strong I just can't put down my Ipad..

Identical twins Rain and Raven may look like one another, but they are different than night and day. Raven is a headstrong lawyer, engaged, and focused on her career. While Rain is more of a carefree photographer, who beats to her own drum.

Growing up Rain had a blood disorder that caused her family to keep her sheltered and overly coddled. Even though as an adult she has learned to keep her blood disorder under control, Rain still feels the tightening ropes of protection when she is with her fa

What can I say? I don't believe in giving spoilers or much of the story line. That's what the synopsis is for. Lol. I will say this. Cleo left me on edge wanting to know what will happen next. Rain is a strong character, but extremely sensitive at the same time. Dominick is an extreme alpha with major mood swings that made me wonder why women are the ones that have to suffer through pms. Jiji. I enjoyed this read, it took me back to my first books. I am a huge romantic, and always want the best. ...more

This was a fantastic read. I really enjoyed it and couldn't resist reading it all in one sitting.

Her kidnapper, Dominic, is s very sexy alpha male. Out for revenge he kidnaps Rain believing she is her sister.

This is a brilliant gripping read with a unique storyline. Be warned its got a whopper of a clif

Gosh the blurb sound fantastic thats why i wanted to read this book badly. But im bit disaapointed, the story didnt turn well for me.
Yes dominick is alpha male but hes annoying alpha male for me. Mostly yelling to her, angry then suddenly so sweet to her...

I absolutely loved this book. I can not give anything away as it is not out yet. But I have to say this is a must read book. It grabbed me from the time I read the first line to the last line. I am very proud of Cleo and feel she will do well in her writing as she has a real talent for book writing.

Thank you Cleo Scornavacca for giving me the opportunity to read Miss Taken.

When I started reading Miss Taken, I didn’t know much about the story. But it captivated me after reading the first two pages. It’s something different. It broke my heart, it was full of romance, suspense, action everything you could possibly imagine. I’m so in love with this story, with the characters. They are well formed, close to reality, so close it’s consuming. Some parts need to just be a story, especially the end

What can I say? I really, really, really liked Miss Taken! From the title to the story! I took 0.5 stars for some minor issues, but they aren’t even worth mentioning…

This is not your typical abduction story. Starting with the abductor, Dominick is not a mean man, on the contrary he is caring and loveable and you can’t help falling in love with his domintant, sometimes jerkish ways.

I loved to see him and Rain. Rai

Miss Taken by Cleo Scornavacca

I received this book as a gift from the author for an honest review and I have to say that is was a remarkable read. A definite must read. The details put forth about the characters and the places they visit make me want to hop on a plane and fly down to Italy. In her debut novel, Scornavacca, story unfolds with a kidnapping, lies, deceit, love and hate. Not sure if you want to hate the antagonist or fall in love with him yourself.

Revenge is said to be bitter sweet,

I love Indie authors, but sometimes I am a bit skeptical and I don't know what to expect when I read their work. This book is fantastic! It was not what I was expecting and it was not the same ole', same ole' in the NA genre! This book is a great, ugly romance that will make you throw your E-reader against the wall.

Like the blurb says twins Raven and Rain Medici are identical. Other than their looks they are total opposites

Rain and Raven are identical twins, but that is where the similarities end. Raven likes to be in control where she works at there dad's law firm as a lawyer, and Rain after being confined for most of her childhood is a photographer and is very good at it.

Now enter Dominick Kane.... OMG he is alpha to the max more so then most alphas in books I think he can take things to the extreme, all he wants is revenge against the people he things did him wrong. He wants his dad's share in Kane and Medici a

Imagine being kidnapped to find out that you're not the intended victim. Yeah, that's what Rain Medici got herself into. Furious and scared, she thought she'll never survive her current ordeal. But as she gets to know her captor, something change. Something electric.

Rain and Dominick's chemistry are undeniable. The bond they made in a short period of time is so strong, they can't pull away even if they try. Although, both are pol

Where do I start? I have managed to complete this book in a day and not even a full day; this book has drawn me in and held me captive in many ways like Rain was held captive by Dominick. Miss Taken has a unique story line and is something which I have not come across before. The story had me gripped from chapter two, which to be fair is very difficult when a book is not a stand-alone novel.

I loved the characters in this book, Rain is a woman who has been controlled all her life, all she wants i

Rain Medici is easy to love. Born with a blood disease Rain grew up sheltered, constantly monitored and truly overprotected by everyone. Throughout the years she's fought for her independence and so far she's won.

Dominic is truly a controlling alpha male with a temper. It's easy to want hate him for kidnapping Rain, laugh at him for clearly not doing his homework on Medici family, loving him for his sweet and gentle side, and then back to being irritated

"Miss Taken" took me by suprise. Who would have thought you could fall in love with someone that kidnaps you? You would think I was crazy, but I totally get it! It was an interesting story and I actually love how they fit together.

Dominick is controlling and always in charge, but it was also kind of Hot that he knows exactly what he wants and pretty much takes it... that could be scary at times..so are you ok with be submissive?
