REVIEW x 2 ~ #MissTaken & #Identity by Cleo Scornavacca

I  met Cleo Scornavacca on Facebook in the New Year ... in a Facebook event

She was a NEW TO ME author and I was instantly taken in by her friendliness and openness to chatting with people ... not to mention her books sounds amazing and the covers are something you want to frame and hang on the wall ... BEAUTIFUL!

I recently finished reading her first two books in her MISS TAKEN series ... 

Miss Taken (Miss Taken #1)
by Cleo Scornavacca

Love........................The Ultimate Loss of Control

Rain and Raven Medici are identical twins. Although they come from a loving close-knit family their childhoods couldn’t have been more different. Raven went to school and was exposed freely to the outside world. Rain on the other hand was born with a blood disorder and denied many normal childhood experiences.

Once grown, Raven becomes a lawyer at their dad’s firm Kane & Medici in NYC. Rain along with her only childhood friend Tommy Conte, builds a very successful business as professional photographers. Traveling between Europe and Manhattan, and enjoying a world that was kept from her, Rain vows never to be controlled again.

Dominick Kane is a product of his upbringing. He’s powerful, self-assured and knows he can achieve anything he desires. Nothing gets in his way. There is only one thing he has ever failed at. A relationship with his father Vincent Kane. Upon his father’s death, Dominick vows revenge. The events he sets in motion put him on a collision course he himself will be unable to control.

In a bizarre twist of fate, Dominick kidnaps Raven as part of his plan for revenge. Only to discover afterward, he has taken Rain by mistake. Rain knows she can never survive being confined again. So she strikes a bargain with the devil and agrees to help Dominick get back what he feels rightly belongs to him. His father’s share of Kane & Medici.

Dominick decides to use the strong attraction growing between Rain and himself to control her in every way imaginable. Too bad no one ever taught Dominick you can’t control the heart. Nothing could have prepared him for the effect Rain would have on his.

Will this plan of revenge turn into unconditional love? Or will Dominick and Rain’s need for control ultimately destroy them and any possible chance for a real future

I love books with twins, mostly because I am one and you don't get that often in books... To me, it's fascinating to see how a writer writes about twins.

This book is about Rain, she's one half of the twins, Raven is her sister but she doesn't take up a lot of the book ... it's funny because I could relate to a lot of the twins behavior with each other ...lol 
I felt many things while reading this book ...
fear, pride, anger, sympathy, sadness, happiness and excitement

Most of it because of Dominick ... but I felt these things for Rain too! 
I don't want to give to much away, I hate spoilers, but Dominick in particular made me feel things in the extreme ... I'm still not sure how I feel about him...I'm on the fence cause the book ends with a bit of a cliffhanger ... one where I don't particularly like him ...lol Guess we'll see how things go in book two ... 

Identity (Miss Taken #2)

by Cleo Scornavacca

People aren’t always who you believe them to be.

Dominick Kane and Rain Medici started their relationship with one another in the most unconventional way. 

He kidnapped her. 

With the kidnapping now behind them, life returns to normal, right?

Not a chance. 

The push, the pull and their fights for control that we’ve come to love about Dominick and Rain still exist. And so does their passion.

People aren’t who you think they are. Familiar faces are not so familiar. The past and the present collide, opening up all of those old wounds and struggles once again. 

Now, everything you thought you knew, gets blown out of the water.

Can Dominick and Rain finally heal what’s broken? Or will new discoveries push them even further apart. 

Will love win out and bring them back together? Or will ghosts of the past ultimately destroy their love once and for all...


I really enjoyed this story even though the characters frustrated me with their behavior!
A continuation from book one ... GAH! 
I wanted to smack them until they smartened up ... opened their eyes ... something! 

The story is full of emotional craziness, struggles, surprises and more...
These characters drive me crazy ... so many times I wanted to just scream at them to stop being so foolish, talk, listen ... ANYTHING but what they were doing!
and at the same time ... I was praying for them to get it right, figure it out
They got under my skin ... like family! The drive you crazy but you love them and want the best for them! lol

I am waiting, impatiently for book three ...
Love isn't always pretty ... and Dominick and Rain prove it! 

Sibling Rivalry
(Book 3) in the Miss Taken Identity Series ...
due for release in 2015
This is the final book in the Miss Taken Identity Series. The story will bring back all of the characters you love and some you don't. Tommy, Raven and Michael will be brought to the forefront. Rain and Dominick will be in a battle of wills. What else is new? 
This time there will be alternating POV's, so that the reader can get the most out of each scene and really feel what each character is going through at any given time.
