My only issue with this novel was the ending, I wanted more from the end. It felt incomplete for me, I would have loved to have seen Tristan with his own kid and see how the boys dealt with a new sibling. The Takeover was a brilliant enemies to lovers romance that I could not put down. This is one novel that I would highly recommend all book lovers read.
“She’s snuggled into my chest, and I smile into the darkness. She loves me. For the first time in my life, I feel at home.”
The Takeover is hands down a strong 5 star book, that checks every single book lovers box! This book is everything and more, Tristan is the perfect book boyfriend. It was impossible not to fall in love with this closet softy. I loved that even though the boys were initially so against him, Tristan persisted and was determined to win over the boys and show them that he cares about them and not only Claire. As for Claire’s character, I really tried to fully love her but she was not my favourite. I found that her problem with letting go of her late husband held her and the boys back from loving a full and happy life.

In bestselling author T L Swan’s second hot installment to the Miles High Club series, he’s sexy, rich, and her mortal enemy. Hate never felt so good.
I first met Tristan Miles at a meeting where he was trying to take over my late husband’s company.
He was powerful, arrogant, and infuriatingly gorgeous, and I hated him with every cell in my body. In the shock of the century, he called me three days later and asked me on a date.
I would rather die than date a man like him—though I do have to admit it was good for the ego. Turning him down was the highlight of my year.
Six months later, he was the guest speaker at a conference I attended in France.
Still arrogant and infuriating—but this time, surprisingly charming and witty.
When he looked at me, I got butterflies.
But I can’t go there.
He’s just a player in a hot suit, and I’m just a widow with three unruly sons.
I just need this conference to be over.
Because everybody knows that Tristan Miles always gets what he wants…and what he wants is me.
