Cover Summary:
U.S. Marshal Wyatt Tanning has been on the hunt for a killer on the run in Turks and Caicos. A week into the investigation, he has absolutely nothing to show for his efforts. Feeling defeated he returns to Castillo Resort to drown his frustrations. There he meets UFC fighter, Rye Daniels. Now the resort’s bartender, Rye recognizes a man that has been beaten down, but he also senses a shared attraction that is hard to ignore. Wyatt might not be ready to step out from behind the shadow of lies, but Rye will stop at nothing to unleash the beast within.

My Review

The story told in a nutshell: 
If I would tell you more than the blurb there would be no more reason for you to read it ;)

My first impression after a chapter:
I like the rough-‘n-tough boxer annex bartender, Rye Daniels doing the flirtatious song and dance with the hot and commanding US Marshall who is Wyatt Tanning.

The emotional journey:
If you could call it a journey! It was more like; the right time, the right place and the right guy who made Wyatt finally accept what he'd been denying himself for years. But with such a short story it fitted.

The sizzling sexiness:
One scene, one night was all I got but dang, it was a sexual hunger and then some. I liked what I got from these two guys and how they voiced their need for one another.

My synonyms for Takedown:
Steamy - fun and quick.

My overall reaction:
What I really enjoyed and appreciated was the fact Stacey Kennedy didn't make this short story about love. There is no substantial characterization or room for preliminaries; Rye and Wyatt meet, the attraction burns and oh yeah, it ignites big time. Twenty-four pages that gave me a fun-filled time, a smile on my face and a moment or two where I squirmed on my couch as need heats between the sheets. Takedown is just a sexy, spiced up quickie you can savor on a lunch break.

The quotes for you to sample:
Yes, Rye wanted this, craved to be used by a man of power.
3 stars
