Taken By The CEO is about Emmaline who has just gone through a divorce.  She thinks that she needs a big change in her life and she is debating changing her name.  When she locks herself out of her car and meets a new guy when she is trying to get help, she decides to lie and tell her that her name is Sarah.  They go on a date and then she realizes that he is the new CEO at her job!! Emmaline is worried now that her promotion is at stake and the CEO thinks that she is a liar.  The CEO, Parker, ends up forgiving her after he finds out that she didn’t know who he was at all and wasn’t lying to try and get to his money.  Emmaline ends up withdrawing from the promotion as her relationship with Parker heats up. She doesn’t want anyone to think that she slept her way to the top.  Parker reinstates Emmaline’s application behind her back and even though typically the CEO has final say in who gets the promotion and wanted it to go to Emmaline, he lets the rest of the committee decide instead.  It looks like this is going to be the first in the series and I’d definitely consider reading more! This was a fun, quick read even though there was a lot of will they / won’t they back and forth with the main couple I still enjoyed it.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

It was only supposed to be a little white lie. When Emmaline Greene pretends to be Sarah, the confident, sexy woman she wishes she could be, she figures no harm, no foul. Her one-night stand will never find out. Wrong. The gorgeous guy she slept with isn’t just amazing in bed…he’s also her new boss.


Parker Wentworth has a lot to prove. He’s just been appointed CEO of his family’s company and is tasked with repairing its scandalous reputation. He can’t afford any distractions or complications. Too bad the attractive blonde he takes to bed turns out to be both. So why can’t he forget the incredible night they spent together and move on?

And why does he have this need to know the real Emmaline?
