Review: Takedown by: Stacey Kennedy

eBook, 29 pages
Published June 7th 2011 by Decadent Publishing

Series: 1 Night Stand
Stars: 4
Flames: 5

                Both Wyatt and Rye separately, have recently visited the same match making service of Madame Eve. They are looking for the right lady to spend some time with. I liked that both Rye and Wyatt are alphas. The romance is minimal. This really is just hot gritty one night stand sex. They came together over beers and a challenge. Wyatt has to initially be persuaded by Rye. Wyatt knows he has an intense sexual attraction to Rye. He is on the self-conscious side about what the US Marshall service, his employer, will think about it.
I had an awesome email this morning from Awesomesauce Book Club Blog. I won a backlist pick of a Stacey Kennedy book. Having seen several reviews for this book when it first came out I knew from get go I wanted to read it. This is a very quick read novella of male and male erotic. I have included some links below. 1Night Stand has their own blog. There are several other books in this series by various authors. The books focus around Madame Eve and her bringing people together for a HFN or a HEA. They are all short novellas. It also appears that they can be read as stand alones and completely out of order. I certainly enjoyed seeing these two big strong sexy alphas come together for a night of scorching hot sex. I will most definitely look into other books to see who else Madame Eve puts together.


  1. Thanks for posting about TAKEDOWN! It's a hot book (pun intended) and Stacey is such a fabulous author.

    The Decadent 1Night Stand series is, indeed, a loose series that is based on a theme, but can be read out of order and as stand-alones. The only thing a reader may miss is the minute references to past characters sprinkled here and there if they choose to skip around. But they are all short, sexy, and fun. :)

    A few are on sale this weekend at SMASHWORDS to celebrate our anniversary. You should check it out there!

    Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend.
