Taking Over Me
Allison would rather fix computers than worry about sex. That is, until the newest barista in town changes everything. All it takes is one hot stare with his sinful baby blues to remind her she’s not just one of the guys. She has lusty needs only he can fulfill.
Patrick’s coffee shop is on the verge of an epic failure, until Allison takes charge of his computer system. He may not know anything about motherboards, but he does know how to take control both in and out of bed. Now Patrick is determined to get what he wants—Allison in his cuffs. His sensual mastery awakens an intense passion and under his command, he’ll unlock the geek girl’s darkest desires.
Warning: Collars. Cuffs. Clamps. Coffee.
You may never look at your local barista the same way again.

4 Cups “Allison may be a techy geek with a passion for comics and gaming, but that is only half of her personality. With Patrick she turns those passions in a whole new direction that drives her right over the edge into a world of kink. Patrick, who makes high marks in my book for being a genuinely great guy, is as totally enthralled with her quirky mannerisms as he is with her body. What a fantastic way to start a series!”
~ Lototy, Coffee Time Romance
“I was fascinated with the switch of who the geek in the story was as usually it’s the man. Told from both pov’s, I adored this book. Usually in the past books I’ve read, the sex had been rushed and quick to happen, so it was refreshing to read this book and watch how it wasn’t rushed…”

5 Stars: “Sara Brookes has written an awesome story…Allison is a strong woman who is successful in her job and secure in herself. Patrick is able to see things in Allison which no one has ventured to discover. He was the star baseball player in college and his strong character has been shaped by a violent childhood and a strong will to know his own desires. The plot flows at a wonderful pace so we get to know both characters. We experience the wonders of a relationship starting to bloom.”

4 Stars: “The two of them have a great relationship where nothing is held back. It is very loving and not selfish at all.”
~ Tigger9, Night Owl Reviews (review of Hardware)
4 stars: “Patrick’s fascination with Allison is not difficult to understand – it is hard not to like a woman who loves fixing computers and geeks out about video games. Top this with her willingness to try new things in the bedroom, and Patrick has found himself a perfect partner.”
~ Dawn, RT Book Reviews (review of Hardware)
