I was privileged to be the ARC of Taken by the Tycoon! I am a big fan of Normandie Alleman. The beginning of this novella was really interesting the dynamics between a mother Violet and her daughter and the introduction of the male character Stewart! The rest of the novel did not disappoint me. In every one of Normandie's novels asked us to look at a part of human nature. In this case we are asked to explore why can't older woman date a younger man without social commentary. The second question is what is behind the concept of a sub dominant relationship.
Here is where Normandie is a skilled expert. She has created two extremely interesting characters Violet and Stewart. Explaining violence apprehension about herself her self image and as the older woman asked each one of us the reader to explore our own concerns or issues.in the course of their story Violet becomes the woman she could be and should be because of herself and not just because of Stewart.Stewart on the other hand is the social Maverick who doesn't see boundaries or we can't go there because what he does is he lives his life yes he is Rich yes he may be able to stretch boundaries but in the end Stewart is very comfortable with himself.
The pace of this novel is grade and provides an insight into the human heart and Normandy Allen is one of the best at her craft and talent.
