      Re Taken Over- PJ and I have a very long standing relationship, she wrote and I generally adored. Sure there were some bumps in the road, but all good relationship's have a few rocky points and I was always sure we would weather the storm, - I forgave Island of the Dawn and Rules Of The Game, (well after a lot of shots and half a dozen cookies, anyway). But the most tested moment of our long standing partnership came after reading this book. I truly loathed this story and it took a long, long ti [...]

      This is a favorite of mine. I like the poignancy of the story. Cassie is a plain jane who doesn't think she's worth more than buying a husband with her successful video game business. Joel is desperate and infuriated that this business rival might get an edge over him by marrying Cassie and gaining control of her business, so he beats him to the punch by kidnapping Cassie and forcing her to marry him. Of course, he doesn't plan to have a real marriage, since Cassie is no beauty. You can guess th [...]

      Heroine having erotic thoughts about OM and even kissing him ruined the romance for me. It felt like she was cheating on her husband.

      Rating: 4 stars.Somehow I wasn't into this harlequin as much as I usually am when I read Harles. Probably because I've just read too much in the recent weeks. Regardless, Taken Over by Penny Jordan was an entertaining read, primarily because I liked the heroine.Cassie is the type of heroine I absolutely adore and can relate to, although I gather that many readers may find her extremely annoying. She's an awkward nerdy wallflower turtle, with very VERY low self esteem (to the point where she lite [...]

      "Taken Over" is a classic by PJ many loves.d i am now one of them!It was so interesting to see how both the hero and heroine had this interest for creating computer games.Joel Howard was one of a hell determined and stubborn hero which lengths to have her.d to how he utterly kept himself from falling in love with her,and how he failed.It was so adorable that he had been attracted to her all the time,but he still behaved like a ass many times after their marriage.His mother truly made our Cassie [...]

      With Penny J, I usually know what to expect but this one just didn't live up to my expectations.It starts of interestingly enough in that she creates video games and has made a great success of her company. Not bad for a male-oriented arena. She is focused on work having accepted her unattractiveness and is practical in her choice of her future husband, knowing he's marrying her to acquire her company. Penny J's strength comes through here in that she makes this sound poignant not pathetic.Enter [...]

      Plain vanilla. Hero looks angry the whole book. Heroine thinks herself too ugly for the hero but is horny anyway. I don't know why this book is in the voting list for the best HPs. I found it a bit boring as there was no real drama.

      It’s 1985 and we’re right in the thick of the computer games boom which I certainly remember (I pestered and pestered my parents for a Commodore 64, and I think it was probably around Christmas 1985 when I actually got one). As usual, keeping on top of current events, Jordan has created her heroine “Cassie”, a games designer who has had considerable success in the field. Despite appearing like a human calculator (and having a name which is slightly reminiscent of a brand of calculator), [...]

      3 throwback starsNostalgia is a scary bitch. It's weird how it makes you enjoy and appreciate the angry misogynystic sexual domination of a male chauvinist. *sigh*Alongside the early Linda Howard, Jayne Ann Krentz and Diana Palmer stories, Penny Jordan was a frequent read for me as a teenager. They all have fairly typical plots involving overbearing, often angry, excessively desirable yet female disdaining heroes and moderately competent, not-too-timid while somewhat withstanding their awesome c [...]

      Loved it three years back. Read it more than thrice. Will read it more than ten times again. Will still love it. Penny Jordan sure is one of the best'est' Romance writers in the crowd!

      Spoiler:Incredibly annoyed with the heroine and her self-esteem issues along with the lack of proper communication between the couple!!

      Joel forces Cassie to marry him because he needs her company in order to ensure his company can get some funding that he needs. Joel saved the plain Jane from a MOC w/ a manipulative OM. However, Cassie agrees to marry Joel and he quickly whisks her away to his other home in the country. Joel believed that if Cassie had married the OM she would destroy all that he worked for. This bothered me because it’s not her fault that his company needs funding or that hers is doing so well. She is just t [...]
