Product description

Product Description

Playboy Mason Thorne is nothing short of complicated. Though he was a movie star at a young age, his life took a downward spiral when he turned to drugs after losing his mother. He cleaned up his act and became a senator but still keeps his distance from most everyone—including his own father. There are plenty of women around, but most are gone by morning.

Twenty-five-year-old Chelle Landon thinks she must be the last virgin in Texas. She’s worried if she doesn’t remedy it soon, she’ll stay one forever. She attends yet another small-town wedding where the last single man her age is officially off the market, until sexy politician Mason Thorne appears. He’s the answer to her prayers, if one can pray for something that decadent.

He needs a cover story, not another lover. Chelle’s on a mission to lose her virginity, no matter what. Will he break her heart or will she heal his?

First Ruth Cardello Book that I have read and it held my attention enough to consider getting the other 2 books from this series as each 3 Books reduced at $1.49 each. I would not consider these books at the normal full price as I did not feel Taken Home was as competitive as some other current New Releases from many talented Authors. This was a pretty easy going storyline and at best worth 3 to 3.5 Stars

I love this series for the characters who we meet in book 1 and reappear in each book. This book is fun, flirty and a quick easy read. Both the lead characters of Chelle and Mason are people whom you grow to admire and respect and enjoy reading their back to front romance. Really enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The love of a good woman! 8 April 2016
By Cindy H - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
They say love can change a man and by the end of this book you will believe that. Ruth Cardello took two opposite people and brought them together in this story. Chelle Landon is a innocent 25 year old virgin who would like to change that fact. Chelle is from a close family and is a small town girl. Enter Mason Thorne who is Chelle's opposite, Mason is a senator, playboy and I mean playboy, who is a love them and leave them kind of man who does things on his own terms. Mason is also a ex-child star with scars from that past. Both meet up at a wedding of friends, with Chelle deciding she needs to loss her virginity to Mason and Mason needing a cover from consequences from sleeping with a wrong woman. Have I gotten your interest yet, I encourage you to read the book to find out if Chelle and Mason reach their HEA. I am sure you will be disappointed, I wasn't. Once again Ruth Cardello delivers another wonderful book, one I thoroughly enjoyed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Taken Home 8 April 2016
By Cathy Henderson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Mason Thorne was an actor turned Senator who was a player when it came to woman and didn’t apologize for anything he did. Chelle Landon was a 26 year old virgin who wanted desperately to see what all the fuss was about when it came to sex. Mason met Chelle at a wedding and he thought of asking her to help him with a problem he had while Chelle wanted him to help her with her virginal status. Their fake engagement spins out of control!

I’ve never read a bad Ruth Cardello story and this one it right there with the rest. It is a well-written story with lots of humor, sexiness, a strong hero and heroine that keep you turning page after page until the end. The story was strong and had some serious issues regarding trust, pain and hurt which are things that happen when relationships are new. I loved Thorne’s assistant, Millie! She was a hoot!!

Check out this hit by Ruth Cardello!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart Taken 11 April 2016
By Ginny Rose - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Taken Home is the long awaited installment in the Lone Stat Burn series, and it was very much worth the wait. Mason and Chelle were both deep, sexy, and like in true Cardello signature a love story with valuable lessons of the heart.

When Mason was introduced in Tycoon Takedown you see the larger than life playboy politician. He doesn't believe in love nor monogamy. Sex and love are manipulative emotions. This is what he believes until an adorable down to earth, full of spirit Texas gal crosses his path and his world of solitude change. Chelle and Mason both take journeys that will either make them or break them.

When you pick up a Ruth Cardello novel expect the three F's in a heartful love story:

I loved the first two stories in this series and Taken Home delivered what I know Ms. Cardello provides. The characters were nothing less than stellar, the scenes were both sexy and spicy. What I loved the most? Ms. Cardello shifted gears, and the one who really needs to be saved is not who you think it is. When you really think about it, Mason and Chelle are mismatched. Yet, that's what makes them perfect. Mason experiences and Chelle's passion makes things interesting.

Do I recommend this book? Yes. I also recommend the first two books in this series are read. A story with this many layers is more appreciated if you start from the beginning and get to meet the characters that eventually become supporting characters for the new ones that come along

5.0 out of 5 stars Love 5 April 2016

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, loved it so much bought a copy.
Mason fits the description of bachelor in every aspect. His upbringing is a Hollywood type - money and facades. He has no relationships, he has flings. Chelle comes from a small town where all is known. Family and relationships makes her the individual she is. When Mason and Chelle meet they form a "relationship" that is mutually beneficial in their goals but matters of the heart may present a different obstacle. Love this series - the strengths and weaknesses exhibited. The growth of characters. The love of family and friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart trumps head or does it..... 12 April 2016
By Antkaren - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Taken Home is book 3 in the long awaited Lone Star Series. As with the other books, I have loved the characters but I think Mason has the edge. He was lost and didn't know it until he met Chelle, then he tried to convince himself that he was fine the way he was. Chelle was an inexperienced young lady when she met Mason. Although they met on a challenge to each other, it was instant chemistry whether he wanted to believe it or not! They had a "fake" engagement in order to get Mason out of a jam. Chelle was honest with her feelings but Mason did what he does best and ran. Was Chelle strong enough to stand by Mason and make him see what he didn't think he wanted to needed? Was Mason strong enough and "man" enough to put his past behind him and realize that he is the one restricting himself. This book goes through their journey of discovery, feelings, betrayal and anger and brings you to the conclusion of what Mason wants but is it too late? You MUST read to find out. As this is book 3 it is technically a stand alone but the characters from the other books do play a role so do yourself a favor and read the series, you will not be disappointed.
