Taking the Lead- Cecilia Tan Review


When the rich and famous come out to play, nothing is off-limits . . .Everyone knows Ricki Hamilton as the icy heiress living in a billion-dollar mansion, high up in the Hollywood Hills. But few realize that behind the gilded gates, Ricki is the mistress of LA's most exclusive private club. A place where no fantasy is forbidden and no one goes unsatisfied-except for Ricki. If she had her way, she'd leave the business behind . . . until she meets the one man with the power to change her mind.

The hottest rock star in the world, Axel Hawke, has the requisite sexy look and bad-boy reputation. Yet even his biggest fans have no clue just how decadently dangerous he can be. From the moment he meets Ricki, he knows there is no other woman who will satisfy him. He can feel the heat hiding beneath her cool demeanor and he's determined to stoke her flame.

Together Ricki and Axel indulge their every desire. The deeper they go, the more she craves. Submitting to Axel opens her eyes, and for the first time Ricki knows exactly what she wants. All she has to do is take it . . .


My review:
  I loved Ricki and Axel's story. Cecilia Tan does a wonderful job of helping you understand why Ricki acts the way she does. I enjoyed watching Ricki come into her own and start acknowledging her own self worth and more importantly, learning how to balance her everyday life and her own sexuality. She finally starts standing up for herself, and good things happen. I cannot get over how well Cecilia showcases how woman can be strong and powerful, but still be soft and pliant for their men, also how she explains it in the story so the reader can understand as well. I can imagine how many fantasies have now been fueled with Axel as the star. I know I have certainly had a few of my own.
