Taking the Score (Tall, Dark, and Texan #2)
by Kate Meader




A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…

Paying down her sister’s debts has left Emma Strickland with little more than the thrift store suit on her back. And as if the suckfest couldn’t get worse, she’s forced to moonlight as a waitress to support herself and her cat. At a strip club. Her uptight, sexy-as-hell boss Brody Kane can never find out.

Texas property tycoon Brody Kane hired Emma for her spreadsheet skills, but her prim and proper demeanor sealed the deal. There’s no room in his life for a sexy distraction … and yet, he can’t stop lusting after the delicious Ms. Strickland. And then he takes an important client to a Chicago strip club and gets the worst lap dance in adult entertainment history. From Emma.

Now that he knows his office good girl has a naughty streak, Brody makes it his mission to uncover her secrets, one steamy, illicit, over-the-desk encounter at a time. But Emma is hiding more than her side job, and her final secret could end up destroying them both.




4 out of 5 stars


This was such a fun read! So entertaining (the burst-out-laughing kind!) and super sexy (the holy-wow-that's-super-hot kind!). I totally enjoyed it!


I totally loved nerd-boy Brody and his little geeky nuances. They were just so endearing to me. Loved that connection he had with Emma, the looks, the pull, and after running into each other out of the office, the animosity that ensued and how the hotness level ratcheted up. I mean super hot! *fans self* I really loved Emma's strength and how much she cared for others. And Brody and Kevin... omg! So hilarious. Loved those little moments. They just made me smile!


Wonderful connection between the main characters. Nice back stories of both, good build throughout. Loved the epilogue though I thought it was a tiny bit predictable. A lighter read, a bit fast paced but it had good development, storyline, and characters. A nice bit of tension, some light drama, and emotion, a whole lot of sexy. I’m really looking forward to the next book. I’m hoping its Flynn’s story because I felt some serious foreshadowing happening in this one and I can't wait to see if I'm right.


A solid read, entertaining, and hot! Just a fun and enjoyable story. If you need some off the charts sexy with laughter mixed in, this is the perfect choice.
