I was not a gambler. No way. I’ve built an existence free of risk and adventure. From my career to a small life with my closest family. I was not going to do anything to jeopardize my heart. But when my neighbor and number one menace to my safe plans showed up in Vegas, I did what every adventurous (not!) woman would do. I got drunk and married the man.

So I am not even going to lie. I thought I would have gotten Colt’s story next but wooo sahhhh… I can wait; I thought he was so yummy in Takeover what little we saw of him.

This was a very laid back read that follows the author’s blueprint of romance, a bit of laughs, family and friends. I d

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right?

Mellie woke up one morning snuggled beside someone, she noticed a ring in her finger and a marriage certificate on the bedside table! The most shocking of it all is that the man she’s clinging to is her neighbor, Adam! Shocked and in denial, what’s a girl like her do? She bolted and went home!

Adam woke up without his new wife beside him, he was mad because his new wife was gone! Unknowingly to Mellie, her new husband won’t let her runaway. He c

Vegas seems to be the headquarters of bad mistakes, and things are no different in this book. Takedown is an accidental marriage romance that introduces readers to characters Mellie and Adam. After attending a friend’s wedding, Mellie and Adam decide to have some nuptials of their own. At the start of the book, Mellie sees the rings on her fingers and immediately flees, as if running will make her accidental marriage dissipate. "'It can't be real,' I whisper. I pull the ring off my finger and ex ...more

Yes! She did it again! Evelyn made me fall in love with this amazing group of family and friends in Boston.... sigh.

This is a fantastic enemies to loves story full of surprises, twists, turns, relationships and most of all love. Mellie is so relatable. I can see her relating to a lot of readers. Strong, Independent, yet a little scared and unsure. She worries, she's loyal, and loves those important to her without question. She navigates her way through her new crazy life like a pro! You'll love

Takedown proves to be one surprise after another. From familiar faces to spicy romance and emotional reveals, Sola reminds fans why her characters are hard to resist. Adam and Mel are an unpredictable mess that keep readers guessing and hearts invested until the very end.

Each book by Evelyn Sola that I have read, I declare that THIS book is the best one yet! Ms. Sola ups the game with each and every entry. Her most recent book, Takedown is so complex and so deeply layered that it delights, entertains, soothes, twists the heart and spirit and poignantly bonds with the reader. I could not put it down until I had read every word. Mellie Dupree and Adam Flynn are legacy characters from the Crave Series and Takeover, respectively (we never meet Adam in Takeover, but ...more

When a trip to Vegas turns out to be more than Adam and Mellie expected all heck breaks loose. This was a cute quick read but wow did I not like Mellie. I found her to be ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Never boring! Always full of family drama that had me hanging on to find out what was going to happen this time. Takedown is a well written story of true love found in the midst of dysfunctional families.
As a teen, Mellie over hears her mom putting her down in comparison to her big brother and doctor, James. Hating her mom and even her brother for a while, she's determined to make it on her own by watching every penny. Adam was rais

At first I really did not like Mellie...oh boy I was wrong! After getting into this book and totally loving Adam and Mellie, I could not put this book down.

Mel and Adam are in Vegas for a wedding and they end up getting married and then the next day the bride runs. Totally love how Adam goes after Mel, she fights it so hard that she denies that they got married. This girl has so much going on in her life and somehow she feels she is lacking, but Adam really sees her and he lets her know that and

This is the story of Adam & Mel working through their insecurities to find love. The scenes between Mel and her mother gives the reader an understanding about her issues. It’s amazing how Adam was able to love her through the family issues. Mel was also great for Adam and his family. I loved the relationship between Adam’s mom & Mel. We also catch up with some characters from previous stories. This is a great story!

all the books I have read from Evelyn Sola and this one has touched me the most. The character of Mel resonated with me because she was me in my youth. To see the evolution of all the characters and how they played out was just wonderful! Read this book and you will not be disappointed! I guarantee it!
I am anxiously awaiting more books from Ms. Sola.

I enjoy the why and how of two people getting together because for me it makes the love sweeter. Give me good dialogue between the characters that portrays a realistic journey with a happy ending, and I will read all day and never want the book to end. "Takedown" achieves all that and more. Mrs. Sola has done it again and I can't wait for her next one!

This was a good enemies-to-lovers book. There were a lot of different twists and turns that made this book hard to put down. I really enjoyed Mellie and Adam's story. From the first chapter, they had to work hard in their relationship. So good!

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Great characters and great writing. Mellie is real and raw a believable real life character. She is flawed and loves the people in her life. Really good read. Like I said I like that she was not perfect. I recommend it.

I received this ARC from the author and my review is voluntary.
