1st. You need to have read the first two books.
2nd. This is written entirely from Stefanos POV.

Ok so this book is allllll about Stefanos.
He's an arrogant, dominant fucked up drug dealer.

There's not much else to describe him. He is a bad man. .
and you cannot help but love him!

Eliza is missing so he goes on a rampage to find her.
oh and he does.

This third book is all about Stefanos' need for his Princess, we get inside his head and find out why and how he does the thing he does.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review

Kratos is written in Stefanos’ POV, we get a little snippet in the beginning of how he became the Tough Alpha Dom (this is not a BDSM book - BUT he needs to dominate the situation, what ever it is... sex or business, and he definitely wants Eliza (Krinos) to submit to him, and he constantly battles Eliza to get her to submit to him, and she is not a SUB)

Some readers will see him as an arrogant SOB, but I do understand what Ms Smith was doing w

This book picks up exactly where Kalon left off. What a conclusion this is. The story is told from Stefanos POV. The first three chapters fill us in on Stefanos earlier life. It explains how he became the hard a** that he is.

We have another nail biting suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I feel like this book finally gave me some of the details I was looking for. The book wraps everything into a nice little bow with its epilogue. We still have a

Wow, this book is full of surprises. If you think Eliza is going to just sit back and be pregnant you didn't read the other books did you? This book has a little back flash to the past and then picks up with Eliza's kidnapping. Who did it and why?

As always Eliza will surprise everyone. She's a tough woman and can handle her own. The problem for Stephanos has always been whether he could contain her. There's the questions of her working while pregnant, after the baby, and the couples future.

So far in the Take Over series, we've seen everything in Eliza's eyes. Kratos gives us the pleasure of seeing everything from Stefanos' POV. We're given the insight of who he is and where he came from as well as the moment he realizes Eliza is his "can't live without". It's sweet to see the instant he realizes he will be totally devoted to her.

At the end of Kalon (Book 2 of the Take Over series), we're left wondering what happens after Eliza (aks Krinos) is kidnapped. Kratos picks up im

So this is the third book in the Take Over Series from T.L Smith.
You will definitely need to read the first two books which are
KRINOS and then KALON.

This third segment is written from Stephanos point of view.
He is fuming, Eliza(Krinos)has been kidnapped and he is going out of his mind with worry.
This is dark...there is a lot of death and killing....loads of drugs, weapons and it's brutal what he does to find his love.

This book shows you how he feels about Eliza and even though he is a dark and d

**Copy received from author in exchange for honest review**

Kratos is written in Stefanos’ point of view and most definitely does not disappoint. This story just gets better and better and this book completes the Take Over Series. It gives a little background of the young Stefanos and then continues on from book two.

I love Stefanos’ point of view, it shows how he changes into the man he is, once he meets Eliza or his “Princess”. Book three takes on a different p

4.5 stars

This is my favourite out the 3 books....One of the reasons might be because it's in the sexy Stefanos POV. I loved being in his head. I liked that I got to see his past and how he got to where he is now. I love Stefanos, the devil may care attitude. It also had its serious swoony moments.

Part 3
Stefanos POV
Abduction seems a consistent theme when dealing with unscrupulous characters without a moral compass.

We get inside the inner thoughts of Stefanos and his desperation for Krinos
It is actually refreshing to see the H revealing his devotion.

Their definition of basement should state ‘see Interrogation and Torture Chamber’.

A garter-wearing, knife-wielding, gun-toting heroine that demands sex on command.

This instalment was less violent and little more subdued, however it
KC  -- Reading Is My Superpower
What a way to end Stephanos and Krinos's story. I loved reading from Stephanos POV. I often wonder what the guy is thinking as things are going on, so I love when an author brings us the story from their POV.

Now, bringing us the story from the guys POV, after writing the girls POV, can be tricky. I do not want to reread the same book over, with a few changes and additions into the guys head. It needs to be it's own book, it's own story. Kratos delivered in this department.. in a huge way.

Although this is Stefanos POV you need to read 1 & 2 , this gives us a little about his background , his meeting Krinos but then it picks up right where Kalon ended. I love all things Stefanos. He is hot , alpha , dirty , cray and fiercely loyal to his Princess !!

Of course Stefanos has a crappy childhood , we got a little piece of him in book 2. He has been taking care of his sister for years and now he has his Princess and his life is devoted to his work and keeping her safe. Despite the f

How the author was able to take a business such as this one and turn it into something so freakin awesome is definitely a talent. Even if the context of the business is evil, you can't help but adore Krinos and Stefanos. I really, really love this leading lady. She is such a freaking bad-ass!! She is totally a take no prisoners, hard core, make no apologies female lead. I love that there was absolutely no indecision in her choices. Even when faced with tough choices she does well not to flip/flo ...more

I must say i like it less than the previous two. Honestly I expected more, much more.
After huge cliffhanger which ended in second book it seemed there will be a war, I needed spectacular revenge. How to say it gently "Kratos" disappointed me a lot.
As always Eliza surprised me but this time in bad way. She's a tough woman and can handle her own. Nonetheless she supposed to be a woman this time. And Stefanos , instead of being dominant he was only submissive in that relationship.
I do not like it.

I love that we get to see Stefanos' side of the story! It wasn't a rewrite of the previous stories, however, which is always a concern. It was great to see the background on Stefanos, explaining why he has turned out the way he has. It was interesting to hear where his loyalties were and why and how he felt about Krinos from the beginning. The book wrapped things up nicely (including an epilogue), but left room for future books on the remaining characters. I'd love to hear what happens to them : ...more

Ta część jest napisana z punktu widzenia Stefano, więc książka napiera jeszcze większego pazura. Poznajemy jego wcześniejsze lata, jego stosunek do kobiet i jak poznanie Elizy wpłynęło na jego życie. Samo odbicie Elizy ni było tym, czego się można było spodziewać, a potem akcja już przeskakuje co kilka miesięcy i pokazuje dalsze losy tej dwójki. Czyta się przyjemnie, bo książka jest napisana z humorem, ale szału nie ma.

I love this series. Such a fan of Krinos and Stefano's life and love! Krinos strength was amazing for the line of work that brings on such scary situations. Stefano is sex on a stick, his dirty talk, protection, and love sustain them together. I hope we can hear more from these characters! Maybe following up with Rock and Cassandra and Hunter and Carmen.....

Krinos is such a strong female character its hard to hate her. There are moments you laugh at loud, roll your eyes, want to cry or cheer with them. That's how addicting it is. Only problem is that its too short.

You need to read the first two books in the series before this one. This book starts with a brief insight to Stephan's back ground, and how he came to get the job he's doing. The rest of the book is about how Eliza and Stephan's relationship continues now that she is pregnant. Another great read.

3rd book just as good as the 1st two. On the one hand I like that the books have been fast paced and to the pony but in the other hand it just feels like this trilogy should be longer. I love Stephanos even more in this book. Great job again TL Smith!
