Rating: 2 Stars

Taken
It Wasn't To My Taste

While Anya Bast's Wicked Enchantment was one of my top surprise pleasure reads so far this year and totally turned me on to Anya Bast as an author, Taken, the short erotic paranormal romance didn't quite do it for me.

Whether due to the limiting nature of the length of the story (it's quite short) or due to my admitted lack of true enchantment with menage relationships (it has to be exceptionally well written menage for me to enjoy it - and I've read them), I found Taken to be rushed and harried at the beginning, and a bit drawn out and tedious towards the end. I saw some promise in Caleb and Van, but wasn't at all fond of Anne through the whole of the story. I'm not really sure why, but she got on my nerves, I'm sorry to say. I thought the strongest parts of the story were from Caleb and Van's perspectives and unfortunately, most of the story was from Anne's. Still, points for originality of idea. I'm still a fan of Bast.

Ratings Guide

Here is a rundown of what the star ratings mean to me! It's not a perfect system, so you may see me add in a .5 star here and there if my impression of the book falls somewhere between these:

5 Stars - Loved it
4 Stars - Liked it
3 Stars - It's okay
2 Stars - Didn't like it
1 Star - Hated it
