Title: Taking Tiffany (Breaking And Taking, #2)
Author: M.K. Harkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 7, 2015
Young socialite, Tiffany Thompson, seems to have it all, everything but love, that is. Guarded since her high school boyfriend’s betrayal, she wouldn’t recognize real love if it hit her over the head. Unless it’s a can of paint, and successful financier Todd Jameson is behind it.
Todd fell hard and fast for Tiffany a year earlier, but, unwilling to risk his own heart after a college sweetheart shattered it, he avoids Tiffany and vows to keep his distance. Fate has other plans, however, and changes both their minds.
But not everyone is happy with their budding romance. Unbeknownst to either of them, a vengeful enemy stands in the shadows with plans to take Tiffany, and Todd is in the way.
Halfway around the world, Angela Bartholomew, a former foe in Tiffany’s circle, is serving a year-long sentence as a volunteer in a Romanian orphanage in payment for her lying, manipulative ways. That or be disinherited by her parents. The spoiled debutante is determined to get home at all cost, but Fate has plans for her, too, and Angela is not prepared for how her life will change.
Will love conquer heartbreak, or will greed and revenge ruin all three lives?

I’d had a plan. I’d kiss her and work her out of my system.
She smelled of lilacs, fresh and clean. I let my lips graze the graceful column of her neck, kissing my way to her mouth and paused. There would be no going back. I stared at her lips, so soft and generous. Dear God, I’d known in that moment I didn’t have a choice. I’d started this, and was incapable of stopping. Too many fantasies, too many daydreams prevented me from not touching her, tasting her.
Emotions were conflicted and mixed. Stop now repeated over and over, but it didn’t make a difference. Go, go, go won the internal battle, so I went.

~ 5 Kept Me Guessing Stars ~
Talk about book full of lies, betrayal, mystery and suspense, but also had an amazing love story built into it too.
I am truly having a hard time writing this review and not because I didn’t like the book, but because I LOVED it but I can’t really tell you why because that would spoil the storyline. It is extremely hard to write a review that will do this book justice without giving any spoilers, but I am going to try.
This is the 4th book I have read by M.K. Harkins and I have to say her books just keep getting better. I really enjoyed this one because besides the really great love story between Todd and Tiffany we got a story that kept me guessing all the way through. Every time I thought I had it figured out, she would throw something at me and change my mind. I was happy in the end that I guessed some of the mystery, but she threw another curve ball at the end that added another element to the story. Her stories are too long but they move at the perfect pace. Nothing is ever rushed but there is never a time in the story that it drags either. Being that this book was told in Dual POV and different time frames, I thought the flow was perfect. Everything just worked well together and I liked how she told this story. My favorite part of this book has to be the epilogue. I thought she did a magnificent job wrapping up everyone’s story and leaving the reader in a happy place 🙂
What I found intriguing about this book was it was kind of like we got 2 stories in one. This book is basically about Todd and Tiffany (Both characters from Breaking Braydon) but she also gave us Angela’s story as well. She was also a character from Breaking Braydon who was the villain in that book. I was curious if she was going to be able to redeem Angela in this story after everything she did in the other book. I am not going to tell you if she did or not, you will just have to read the book.
Like I said before this book is about Tiffany and Todd. I loved their characters. They seemed to mesh well together. This was actually kind of like a friends to lovers story. Because Todd and Tiffany have been friends for over a year but during that time they have also been fighting feelings for each other, until one night one of them cracks and makes it known how they feel. You’ll have to read the book to see who broke first 😉 I thought both Todd and Tiffany were relatable and believable characters. You can’t help but get sucked into their world and root for a HEA for them.
Taking Tiffany is a spin off from Breaking Braydon and I guess it can be read as a stand alone but my recommendation would be to read Breaking Braydon first and then this one. You meet Tiffany and Todd in book 1 and I think you get more of feeling of their characters by reading book 1 first. Plus you’ll understand the dynamic of the other characters better. We do get to see a lot of Braydon, Jain and Colin in this book, so it would be nice to know their backstory as well.
So if you are a fan or are looking for a book that has an intriguing and captivating storyline and lovable characters and has the perfect mix of mystery, suspense, and romance, then this is the book to read. I think every reader should give this book a chance, there is something for all readers out there.
