Review of Take Down by Mallery Malone
Take Down by Mallery Malone
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Despite this being the third installment in the series, we still knew very little about Gabriel aka The Bayou Beast. All we really knew to this point was that he is an MMA fighter who participates in illegal underground matches for the thrill of it and that he has a reputation for being cold and lethal inside and outside of the ring. To learn that he had been in love and had his heart broken was not a surprise as it is the theme of this series. However, to learn that the woman who broke his heart is now a pop singer, THAT was shocking.
While I do so enjoy my bad boy, alpha males, it was Kari that I adored in this book. She’s a feisty character who has no problem facing down The Bayou Beast – something that even his business partners don’t like to do. This of course made for some rather entertaining reading as Gabriel sets off on a path of revenge that leads him back to Kari. He learns rather quickly that ten years have not diminished his love or desire for her. And what Gabriel wants, Gabriel gets - thankfully that includes some seriously hot sex.
Take Down is an excellent addition to the series and was a quick read for me. I enjoyed getting to know Gabriel better, so I was distraught when I read the lengths to which Kari’s father went to keep them apart when they were teenagers. As all three of the billionaire’s have had their stories told, I am assuming that this is the final book in the series. And while I can hope that I am wrong, I can at least take solace in the fact that Ms. Malone has other books available for my reading pleasure.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
