Ah, the curse of the short novella. I adore Rebecca Zanetti. ADORE. The first book in this series was a whole-hearted five star read. HIDDEN was actually one of my very favorite books of 2018. So I had high expectations going into TAKEN, especially because I have read, and loved, many of RZ’s novellas in the past.
For the most part, I enjoyed this quick, intense, and sometimes heartwrenching novella. Hunter and Faye are two soulmates who were separated because of unsaid hurts in their past. It was a quick second chance romance with an action plot that made my stomach hurt. For RZ fans, there is one part that will make you gasp in joy! Totally worth the read just for that one scene.
This novella was a tad underdeveloped. I think the purpose of this story was to invest the reader more into Raider’s future book, and that objective was entirely successful. I am ready for it! But as a romance, Hunter and Faye needed to have a little more conflict and page time to completely satisfy me. Their reunion was a bit too seamless and I didn’t really understand why they broke up in the first place.
Overall, this was a good novella. Rebecca Zanetti is my queen and that will never change. I wanted and expected a little bit more, but I think fans of the series will enjoy it.
