I'm a HUGE fan of S.J. Maylee's, so it comes as no surprise that I would like this book, but I really loved it! I truly enjoy her style of writing and her stories have all been the type I pick up and don't put down again until "The End".
Taking Courage is the second book in her 'Love Projects' series, and I absolutely loved the first one! In this book, we have Janna. She gets her nerve up to visit a BDSM club for the first time and meets Master Simon, who she negotiates a minor scene with. But she neglects to tell Simon it's her first time, and Simon has a very strong reaction and takes off.
Before she can leave and get ready to pack up to fly home, she's intercepted by another Dom. He not only makes her feel better about Simon, but gives her a contact number for the job of her dreams. Keller to the rescue.
Later, when she starts her new job as project manager, she meets the person she'll be working for. Simon. Who's not very happy to see her. Sparks fly. But the bigger question ends up being, will she stand up to her father who insists on her coming home and will go to any length to bring her there?
I honestly loved Janna, a few times I worried about her decision making, but I thought she was good for Simon. And of course it was great to see Simon get his girl...now on to Keller?
Janna’s ready to make over her life and get out from under the controlling thumb of her father. She doesn’t want another failed arranged marriage. She’s ready to do whatever it takes for the career she wants, enter the lifestyle she craves, and to earn the trust and love of the man that has captured her heart—but heartbreak and career hiccups seem to be her destiny.
Simon’s still recovering after his last submissive lied her way into his life. He’s not ready for Janna and how she pushes against his prejudices. He needs to decide if he’s willing to lose her or if he’ll fight for her love and submission.
