The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of Taken By Love (Taken, #1) . . .
Looking for a quickie read that give you mystery, suspense, with a touch of romance Then a look at Taken By Love book one in the series Take from Sharon Kleve may be the quickie you need. Look over the minor mistakes and choppy sentences and oh, yeah a few places where things just didn't go right. 

I was wanting to know what was coming next. Lucy was in a tight spot and it was all to get Arden. Action was present. Dumb female no where to be found. She was a bit misinformed (her fault). There are a few things that feel pieced together but it was a quickie read.

You will be page turning to see what's to come next. Just because of the fact that there are things missing you are looking to see if they appear. 

**This eBook was provided by Sharon Kleve the author in exchange for an honest review.**

Book one of the exciting Taken Series will slip you into the world of drug cartels, DEA operations, and the never-waiving love between Arden and Lucy. 

Arden Jones is a DEA agent and has seen and done it all. His transfer to a desk job is finally in reach. But, when his good friend is brutally murdered he must go after the cartel one more time while protecting the ones he loves. 

Lucy Farris arranges flowers for a living, lives in a quaint house in the outskirts of Seattle, and has two adorable Siamese cats. The last thing she expects is to be kidnapped and used as bait by the cartel to hunt the man she loves. 

Author Info
Sharon Kleve was born and raised in Washington and currently lives on the Olympic Peninsula with her husband. Sharon is a multi-published author of paranormal and contemporary romance. 

She loves romance. She loves reading romance, living romance, and especially loves writing about romance. Sharon gets no greater feeling than watching her characters come alive in each other's arms. Most of all, she loves giving her characters the happily ever after they deserve—with a few bumps and bruises along the way.

One of her favorite things to do is pick-up a new book and sinking into the story, immersing herself in the emotions between the characters. She hopes to inspire her readers the same way her favorite authors inspired her.
When not writing, she can usually be found either curled up in her recliner with her cat and a good book, or in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or bagels. 

I’m asked on a regular basis why I have some sort of animal in every one of my books. It is simple…I love animals and I love writing about them. It doesn’t matter what kind, shape, or size. I love them all!

Throughout my life I’ve had dogs, birds, frogs, lizards, rabbits and of course precious cats. My husband and I have a dozen bird feeders, two water fountains and multiple yard-art fixtures that we put food and water in for the critters. 

Several years ago our cat of fifteen years passed away and we were going to wait awhile before getting another one but as the days went on we missed having a cat. It was during the winter so there weren’t any kittens available. I searched all the shelters and saw pictures of an eight-month-old female, shorthair cat. 

When we picked up Ardy from the Bremerton, WA PAWS, they said we'd never be able to pick her up or touch her. She'd been abused. My husband played with her and instantly fell in love. We took her home and after many months of special care, she loves to be held. We laugh because she likes it so much she won't let you put her down. 

All animals deserve a little time, patience and a good loving home. 

PAWS is a wonderful organization. To volunteer your time or donate: you can contact them at
