When they were in high school, Jax and Nathan were best friends, they could have been much more if Nathan’s father hadn’t ruined Jax’s life, while Nathan did nothing to defend his friend, and Jax has resented the betrayal his whole life. He eventually made a relatively good life for himself, even though the incident prevented him to get a higher education. They meet again when the company Nathan works for, his father’s, intends to demolish Jax’s bar, and Nathan helps Jax when the latter is faced with a dangerous situation. Jax, in spite of being furious at Nathan, has never stopped loving him, the problem lies with Nathan: how does he really feel towards Jax, and is he prepared to face the consequences of his decisions, whatever they are? TAKEN BACK is a male/male erotic romance with an excellent storyline, complex and intriguing characters, and very realistic sex scenes. TAKEN BACK is a very angry book: both Jax and Nathan are frustrated, for different reasons. I appreciated how the authors handle an interesting subject that Jax must deal with, and I don’t believe I have ever seen it before. My problem with TAKEN BACK is the writing: it is very masculine, very in-your-face, and there are a lot of four-letter words, a bit too much too my taste. It does fit the story and the characters, but the prose is very stark, very black and white, if I may say. Simply put: I did not bask in the prose. I give in fact 3 ½ stars I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

There was one saying and voice inside my head while reading Taken back. I heard Oprah saying: "Live your truth." There were many uncomfortable subjects faced in authors Julie Farrell and Cali McKay's latest romance. However the ability to be true to yourself was the biggest obstacle. Factor in murder, betrayal and Nathan and Jax's are not all that different from most couples. I received an ARC of Taken Back in exchange for an honest review. Though not my normal reading material, it lived up to the skill of each author.
