Powerful. Dominant, Unforgettable. He commands submission at all costs.

Cage fighter, Gabriel Devereaux, a man of barely leashed power, is known as the Bayou Beast.

There is one woman he will do anything , pay any amount to possess.

Karina Armistead, has come a long way from the innocent girl Gabriel used to know. An internationally known singer, she can have anything she wants. But everything tells her that getting involved with the Bayou Beast may leave her wrecked beyond repair.

Little does Karina Armistead know, but Gabriel has decided that she will be his.

He will destroy anything or anyone who stands in his way.

Holy moly! Where can I find a Gabriel Devereaux of my very own? He's built like a man that knows how to pleasure a woman. And he's very...very...VERY determined to stake his claim for Karina. She's haunted him since their relationship ended abruptly, thanks to Karina's controlling father. He's had it out for Gabriel for years. Gabriel's had enough and it is his turn to get his revenge. Unfortunately for him, all thoughts of revenge flee his thoughts the moment he sees Karina. All he wants now is her...

Oh, my god. I am in love with this series. Each of the novellas got hotter as the series progressed and I'm pretty freaking sure Take Down was the hottest of them all. I loved every moment of this short novella. From Gabriel's need for revenge to falling for the woman he's loved all this life to Karina finally standing up to her father. This novella rocked! I loved Gabriel and Karina. Both were so very strong in their own right. Gabriel has had to overcome so much hatred to become the champion cage fighter he is. Karina has had her own ups and downs from dealing with her family to coping with the possible loss of her voice early in her career. Together, Gabriel and Karina can do anything. Most importantly, they can fall in love again. My only complaint is the usual - why is this a freaking novella?! I would have loved a full length novel just to see more of Gabriel and Karina's relationship, especially more of them getting to know each other again and being together. Those were by favorite parts of the novella. Still, I loved it and I hope this won't be the last in the series.
