Review: Taking Over Me (Geek Kink #1) by Sara Brookes

He’s everything she didn’t know she needed...

Allison would rather fix computers than worry about sex. That is, until the newest barista in town changes everything. All it takes is one hot stare with his sinful baby blues to remind her she’s not just one of the guys. She has lusty needs only he can fulfill.

Patrick’s coffee shop is on the verge of an epic failure, until Allison takes charge of his computer system. He may not know anything about motherboards, but he does know how to take control both in and out of bed. Now Patrick is determined to get what he wants—Allison in his cuffs. His sensual mastery awakens an intense passion and under his command, he’ll unlock the geek girl’s darkest desires.

Warning: Collars. Cuffs. Clamps. Coffee.
You may never look at your local barista the same way again.

What do you get when you take one Dom, add a geeky girl, throw in some leather, computer equipment and a coffee shop?  You get Taking Over Me, the first book Geek Kink series by Sara Brookes. This fun sexy story is filled with great characters, great sex and great coffee that will have you looking at your barista in a whole new way.

After reading several books by Sara Brookes I’ve come to the realization I really prefer her longer books versus her novellas. Why? Because novellas are just not long enough to thoroughly enjoy the characters she creates. Allison and Patrick are perfect! Not that they are perfect. Oh no, they are flawed with complicated baggage and have wounded hearts. That’s what makes them so perfect and why I get so attached to them. Lovable underdogs. Patrick is all hunky and Allison, who is the super geek (I love it when the girl’s the geek!) is just one of the guys. Talk about opposites attract! I found the building of the friendship into something more very sweet and real. And the sexual attraction and heat between them…YOWZA! Okay, I do have to admit I did rate this book 4-flames even though I don’t think it should be but, because of the BDSM aspect, I cranked it up a notch. As for the plot, LOVED IT! It flowed smoothly with a nice build up and all the character introductions had a nice, natural rhythm. About those secondary characters, I simply adore them. Instead of being near blurbs in the story they are contributing factors and enrich the story. The added plus is I know this is a series and I really look forward to seeing them again in another book down the road.

To be honest, I read a the second book in Geek Kink series first so I know what’s coming. However, now that I have read Allison and Patrick’s story I have a better understanding of how this series is going to work. And, even though I think books can be read as stand-alones I really do recommend reading the series. So now that I have finished Taking Over Me I will bide my time by re-reading Rock Your Soul and anxiously wait for the 3rd book to come out.
