Not really sure how I feel about this book, especially since it is based on real events? Wow I would hate to be anyone of the 2 couples in this story, really sad to see 2 marriages destroyed because one man could not get over his college days passions for the woman, who btw, did not know he felt that way about her! Then they both indulge in an affair right under their spouses noses, not liking that at all! There is a sequel which is told from Jake's perspective which you need to purchase to see how it all ends. Just not my favorite read.

I’m sitting here with my mouth still hanging open. Did that really just happen? No really did that just happen? I’m going to warn you that this review is going to happen a little differently. I don’t want to let the proverbial cat out of the bag hell I don’t even want to begin to, but I do want you all to know that this book broke all my typical rules. And I want you all to understand that this is my take on this book here it goes. I’m going to try and start at the beginning. This is the 2nd book by CM Hutton that I’ve read, my first being just a few days ago. (Loving Her) This book was the first book that she published, and fantastic doesn’t even begin to describe it. I have to tell you it was a little hard to start, but once you get into it. You wont be able to put it down. It was a easy read, the words just kept flowing but the storyline left me feeling like I couldn’t read fast enough. Paradise Taken is a story about two couples that share a long friendship and now a business together. They move to the Island of St. John were being around one another on a more regular basis brings out feelings to the surface that were tucked away before. Realizing that Jake can’t live his life without Kaye knowing the truth, he reveals his secret to her. And together they go on a very personal journey together of stolen moments, hidden looks and burning passion. But eventually, they are burnt by that very passion and have decision that must be made, or in my opinion are made for them. But what one person decides leaves them all walking away scars that run deep! This book, its fantastic like I said before it does break a lot of rules for me. I’m not a big reader of books with affairs in them, but some of them like Paradise Taken you get it. I don’t really see it as the casual affair. I see Kaye as stuck no matter what she would’ve tried. She was trapped by a man that yes she loved, but there wasn’t any real passion for anymore. Rob seemed controlling to me, and yes there were times that she went along with it. But finally I think she realized that she deserved better, and deserved what true love. I don’t think she realized exactly what it was until Jake showed her it to her. And Jake, well you just fall in love with him. I can’t pinpoint what it is about him exactly he’s charming & sweet. Yes, I know he’s cheating to but there is something about him. Maybe is because you don’t know a lot about his relationship with Claire. I do have to tell you that there will be a follow up book to this one. I don’t believe the exact date has been released. But I’m pretty sure it will be coming out in the earlier part of 2014. You will be hearing more from me about it all so stay tuned!! ¿Jammie

I honestly do not really know what to say about this story. Someone said it breaks all the rules. You can say that again. I have never read any book remotely like this one before and i have done a lot of reading in my 58 years. This one caught me completely off guard. Writer needs a better beta as l noticed quite a few grammar errors as well as many sloppy sentences that could have been easily fixed. The writer foes tend to get lazy and the author really had no business publishing it if only for the sloppiness. I am an author myself and my stories are my babies and l would never publish one with such lack of attention to detail. I do not mean the story but rather how it is written. Correctness in a story is a direct reflection on the writer. I do not want to spoil this story for others who are considering reading lt so i will just say that i do not expect thr ending to appeal to many people. Not worth the read in my opinion and not because lt does not hold your attention because it does. The ending is just so abrupt and unexpected. And yes its disturbing to say the very least.
