Why play nice when you can be naughty?
Jessica Bauer is aces when it comes to security, but the PR side? Not so much. Now she has a chance to take over Knight Securities―if she plays nice with the next client. Unfortunately, that client happens to be Declan McCabe. And it’s too bad someone wants him dead, because after he broke her heart ten years ago, Jessica would have cheerfully murdered him herself.
Declan has taken his dad’s not-so-reputable company and turned it around, and in the process, he’s attracted the attention of some vicious killers. The only perk is being reunited with Jessica, who Declan still wants so much he can barely see straight. But Jessica has a plan of her own. She’ll protect Declan. She’ll have unbelievably hot sex with him. And when the job is finished, she’ll move on. Except that this time, Declan isn’t so willing to walk away…

You know I hate you, Declan. I've hated you for a long time. Too long."
He swiped his tongue across his lower lip. "Baby girl, I love the way you hate."
4.5 - "I love the way you hate." Stars!
Taking Control is the third installment in the Babysitting the Billionaire series. Not quite as good as book one, but just as enjoyable as book two. I like that each one has focused on one particular couple whose relevance to Knight Security varies.
She was... ...more

By far, this is my favorite of the Babysitting A Billionaire series, and it's got way more feminine badassery than the first two books, and it's much intense and much
sexier, and it features one of the best friends in the previous... ...more

Taking Control by Nina Croft is the third book in the Babysitting the Billionaire series. It can be read as a stand alone, but it would be great if you read the first two books in the series.

I've loved this series since the first book and have since read everything Nina Croft has put out. One thing that I really like about Nina Croft is that she writes strong heroines.

This is the first time I can remember reading this author when it wasn't a paranormal genre. When the author is able to write in several genres and keep a reader interested that shows a gift to me.
