Takeover (Kings of the Boardroom, Book 1) by Nana Malone ~ Book Review


An arranged marriage is my family’s last chance… I have to marry a ruthless stranger to save them.

Billionaire Atticus Price wants my father's struggling empire. Even worse, he wants me. Immediately. Irrevocably. He isn't a man who accepts no for an answer.

This is a hostile takeover, and somehow I’ve become the price.

I'll protect the people in my father's company, even as my father sells it to the highest bidder--along with me. That doesn't mean I'll be the meek bride he expects.

It's a sensual battle of wills. He's the king of the boardroom, and he'll make me his queen. At any cost. Falling for him is a weakness I can't afford.

TAKEOVER is a thrilling new billionaire romance from Wall Street Journal & USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone. Contains a hero who takes what he wants.

This was a great start to the Trilogy!

I loved getting to know Gwen and Atticus in this first book of the KINGS OF THE BOARDROOM TRILOGY. Their meet cute was just that cute, I mean it just sparkled, but that is where the cuteness ended because this is NOT a RomCom.  

Gwen's family business is in trouble and her father is willing to do anything to save it, which means he is looking to sell off the R&D division which is Gwen's baby. She's not happy about it but she doesn't have much say in the matter, but when her father insists that it stays in the family and the person that buys it marries his daughter, that's where things get interesting.

Atticus Price wants the R&D division of Becks Inc. and once he meets Gwen he wants her as well, so an arranged marriage isn't looking so bad even though he never saw himself getting married before the Beautiful Gwen walked into his life.

This story is fast paced with lots of twists and turns and one epic cliffhanger. If you think Gwen's dad sounds like a piece of work, you should meet Atticus' father...he's the real winner of that title. This story will have you reaching for a glass of iced water during the steamy scenes and wanting to throw your kindle during others. I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book ACQUISITION which comes out in May 2024.

I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy STEAMY Contemporary Romances, Interracial Romances, Romantic Suspense Reads, Arranged Marriage Romances, or Billionaire Romances.

Happy Reading!!!

USA Today
Bestseller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion, and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
