Book Review - Chosen for Power by Kathleen Brooks

ABOUT THE BOOK


Somebody is out to destroy Elle Simpson and everything she’s worked hard to build. As the CEO of a corporate conglomerate, Elle is used to fighting off challengers. However, this new threat comes at a time when she finally lets her guard down to meet Prince Charming. And it’s unlike anything she’s been up against before.

Drake Charles’s work on mobile technology has made him a wealthy, powerful man.
But he quickly sheds the fame and publicity for a more private life, which earns him the label as a man of mystery. Drake adds to that mystery every year when he hosts a masquerade ball for charity. It’s also his best chance to find the one thing he really wants . . . true love.

Having met behind masks of anonymity, Elle and Drake enjoy a whirlwind night of romance that leaves them both wanting more. But Elle must question everything and everyone as she battles to save her life and career. Can Elle trust Drake to help get her life back or will she lose everything?

REVIEW

This was an enjoyable first book in Kathleen Brooks new Women of Power series. Elle and Drake are both strong characters and I enjoyed the romance. It was fun exporing the secondary characters more through being suspects in the underlying mystery.

The first several chapters of this book had been released as a stand-alone short story, and worked well as a short story. I was surprised at how well Brooks was able to expand it easily into a full novel, since the couple had essentially come together already in the short story.

I look forward to reading the next book in this series.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
