Taken By Ezra by Caroline Peterka

Lanee Connors is used to living vicariously through her friend, Claudia, but when she meets club owner and Adonis, Ezra Lanphear, that's suddenly not enough. He makes her heart beat like a sledgehammer and makes her want to believe anything is possible.

Ezra wants to give her everything, but it's going to be a long road. When she was eighteen, Lanee was attacked while on vacation. Then she lost her father to his suicide. Lanee's locked down around her pain. She wants to have normal life and a good relationship, to have all of the things she's shared with Claudia, but she's terrified of getting hurt again.

She's trying to be normal, but Ezra wants to help her heal from the inside out.

I will be brutally honest and say that I have mixed feelings about this book. The base storyline was nice and engaging, but it just fell short of its potential for me.
Being in the first person point of view seemed to slow the story down for me and it sometimes felt as though I were reading a description. Having said that, there are some points of the story that are deeply emotional and work well with first person.
I did enjoy the character chemistry and of course the sexy men. The family dynamics were equally emotional and adorable and entertaining for me.
The actual base romance of the book was hard for me. I loved the characters, but their actions seemed so juvenile to me at times. The situations were important and meant to be deeply emotional, but they had a teenager mood swing type of feel for me.
Overall, I'd say it was an okay book and could very well be a nice read for some.

I live in South Dakota with my husband and three girls. I have a full time job in healthcare, but reading and writing is my passion. There is nothing greater than reading a book and escaping the reality through a wonderful journey in an author’s creation.

I have always loved to write stories and give them to people to read. I have been writing since I was ten years old and this is a dream come true. I have over hundreds of handwritten stories and hope to get them out there for the world to see.
