Gabriel Woolf is unstoppable. A ruthless businessman, he has perfected the art of revenge. Ever since his mother's death, Gabriel has harbored only one wish: To take down the man who ruined their lives. But all bets are off when he meets his father's stepdaughter, Honor St. James. Beautiful and innocent, she is everything Gabriel never knew he wanted - and now there's no turning back. Honor wasn't born yesterday. She knows that Gabriel is a wolf in sheep's clothing, willing to cross any line to get what he wants... herself included. But Gabriel's passion for Honor - in spite of her connection to the man he hates the most - cannot be denied, and the feeling is utterly mutual. Can Gabriel be trusted? The only thing Honor knows for sure is how he makes her feel. And she can't keep herself from coming back to him, over and over again.

"With a distinct voice and fresh, complex characters, Mine to Take is a sexy, emotional read that gripped me from page one. I can't wait to see what Ashenden brings us next." (Laurelin Paige, New York Times)
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
From the first chapter I knew I was going to like it.... and by the second chapter I was totally hooked. Nine Circles are worldwide Clubs for it's rich, dysfunctional and damaged Billionaire members to share their ideas.... but not their backgrounds. Gabriel belongs to the Second Circle in NY he's a self-made Billionaire who's clawed his way up through the tough mean Streets, through the MC Club he once belonged to and through sheer hard work. He's tough, he's a grade A bastard, he's eaten up with hatred over the past and he's Hell bent on revenge and nothing and nobody's going to stand in his way.
He finally gets a way in to destroy the person he hates above all others but he must use unsuspecting Honor to do it. Honor is a beautiful, strong, intelligent and successful business-woman trying to help her Step-father's failing Hotel chain by investing in it herself and also trying hard to find an Investor....... in walks tall, dark, sexy Gabriel who is playing at being their Saviour. But the deeper they delve into the business the more shocking revelations are unearthed.
He's got a heartbreaking emotional past, there's lots of secrets, twists, intrigue, surprises, suspense, off the charts sexual chemistry, graphic sex scenes with slight bondage Sub/Dom tendencies, attempted murder, very interesting secondary characters and a Heroine who believed in him, could see beyond his hard Alpha shell and held on for a HEA ending no-matter what grief he dished out.
Told from dual POV's and Romy Nordlinger did a great job with the narration and accents. Not a cliffhanger but a 'pass the story over to another character' ending.
Worth a credit? It's action-packed, addictive, enjoyable and YES very creditworthy.
