Book Review – Miss Taken (Miss Taken #1) – Cleo Scornavacca


* Provided on behalf of the author for an honest review *

Meet Rain, a 34-year-old freelance photographer who was off to Capri,  Italy for a photo exhibit. Rain was so excited to be going to Capri as it was her “home away from home”.

Left to get her own way to the airport alone, Rain was fine until she walked out the front door and was faced with a black SUV.

From that moment Rain’s life would change forever.

Rain had been kidnapped.

First thoughts were it was her best friend Tommy but then fear controlled her.

What if it wasn’t Tommy?

What if she was really being kidnapped?

Hearing men talk in the front Rain soon learned that she was being kidnapped and held hostage.

But by who?

She was scared and felt ill but was no way “going down without a fight”.

Now inside with her kidnappers, her blindfold was removed and Rain finally came face to face with her captor.

Tall, very attractive with dark hair and a moustache and goatee that were very well-groomed. He had the most dreamy hazel green eyes that Rain had ever seen.

Who was he?
What did he want with her?

They kept calling her Miss Medici so it must have been someone who her father had pissed off?
Her captor called Rain a lawyer… Did they mean to take her twin sister Raven?
Has he only taken Rain because of her father does?

A name?
Her captor?

Dominik Kane.

Dominick, a sweet man, would do his very best to protect Rain, but then something would snap and he would turn into the monster that she feared he would be.

Dominick was holding her hostage, wanted to destroy her family but yet here she was having these feelings of “electricity” between them every time he came close.

Was she starting to fall for her captor, the man who had taken her from her family just to get back at her father?

The more time Dominick and Rain spend together, the more Dominik falls for Rain.

But they had an agreement and they were both breaking it.

What will become of Dominik and Rain?

Will after everything that Rain has been through, allow Dominik in?
Will a relationship between them survive?
Is the trauma too much?
Is the Dominik she has come to know, really who he say he is?
Can Rain ever trust him?
Will secrets destroy them?

You are just going to have to read it to find out.

Miss Taken was a good read. We found it a little hard at the beginning, finding it a little slow, but it definitely picked up pace as we continued on.
We found the author to be very descriptive and wrote in detail.
Never reading anything from Cleo Scornavacca, we weren’t sure how we were going to find this novel.
By the end of it we fell in love with both Rain and Dominik, worlds apart but yet so much alike.
For us overall a good read.
We rate Miss Taken 3 stars.


“Every day is a gift… When you choose to not accept what life has to offer, it’s an opportunity missed.”
