Love Projects : Taking Over is the third book in the series by S.J. MayLee. I have never read this series before and I was not lost at all. Gina is a very modern character. She has her own sense of honor and is not willing to give into anyone’s demands. One would think that would make her a dominate. But nope she is a sub. So that means she has to give into someone right? Well her husband left her, and there is a nasty rumor going around about her now. Top that with a ton of family problems how is a sub suppose to get a dom?
Enter in old flame Marcus. He happens to be the best friend of her ex husband. He believes the reason that they broke up is because Gina cheated. But he cannot get past his own feelings for Gina. He has always wanted her. If she had not married her husband he would have asked her to marry him. Now Gina is free, and needs him. Can he put the past behind and find a new beginning with Gina?
I liked how Marcus didn’t take any of the gruff that Gina put out. He got to the heart of the matter and made sure Gina knew he was not going to be scared off by her icy attitude. Gina just had to learn to let someone in, and let them help her. I am so glad she did with Marcus. I really think these two were meant for each other.
Very nice pace to this book too. There is plenty of heat between Gina and Marcus that kept me turning the pages. Really liked this story and glad I got the chance to read it.
