Chloe Vaughn couldn’t take it anymore. It seemed that Merrick, her husband, desired his company more than he wanted her. The only quality time she spent with him, was working as his administrative assistant. Because of Merrick’s workaholic behavior, the only option Chloe felt that she had, was to seek a separation – a decision that hadn’t come lightly because she passionately loved her husband.

Merrick Vaughn was shocked beyond belief! Chloe, his beautiful wife, had left him. Not because of another man, but because of his work habits. Well, Merrick wasn’t about to lose Chloe without a fight. So, Merrick offered a proposition he knew Chloe could not refuse – spend a week’s vacation in Hawaii, the same place where they honeymooned, and during the entire week, with the exception of the last night, she must allow him to have total control. Will Merrick be able to save their marriage or was all hope lost?


TAKING CHLOE, the third book in THE VAUGHN SERIES, was a sizzler! This novel was overflowing with never ending naughty sexual play that left me breathless with great desire.  Merrick was a true alpha male that lit Chloe’s fuse in a very powerful way. While Chloe, who appeared innocent at times, knew just how to handle her man when it came to the bedroom. The intense chemistry between Chloe and Merrick was well described and kept me totally engrossed until the very end.


This was a storyline that focused on a major issue that could pop up in any given marriage – allowing the marriage itself to become a secondary matter. And, in order to save it, drastic measures had to be taken. There was no doubt that Chloe and Merrick were very much in love with each other. But, somehow Merrick had allowed his business to consume his life, all while ignoring his wife. Now, he had to set things right or be faced with the possibility of losing his wife. Overall, I found TAKING CHLOE to be a fascinating read.


TAKING CHLOE can be read independently of the other two books.
