Book Review: Gabe by Leigh James

What’s the story- From Goodreads:

Silicon Valley billionaire CEO Gabriel Betts has finally found the happiness he’s been searching for—in gorgeous, brilliant fellow billionaire Lauren Taylor, the so-called reigning queen of the biotech industry. But when Chinese healthcare mogul Li Na Zhao kidnaps Lauren’s sister in a high-stakes game of corporate espionage, the world they’ve worked so hard to protect comes crashing down. Li Na agrees to trade Hannah for Lauren’s Paragon Laboratories and her help—onsite and in person. In an attempt to keep Lauren safe, Gabe calls in his security-industry professional brothers to help get Hannah back. But when the rescue effort stumbles, Gabe must pick up the pieces to protect the woman he loves…before she makes the ultimate sacrifice.

Favorite Words: “I wanted to stop, but I couldn’t help myself. I wanted him, despite my exhaustion and my anger from easily in the day. I always wanted him. My body reacted even as my mind told me to stop—that he should be punished for what he’d done, risking his life like that.

Still, as if they had a mind of their own, my hands ran down his back to his firm ass. I pulled him closer.

My body was a traitor.”

Fast paced, hot, and fun. This book is everything that you would want for a fun weekend read. Did I mention it was hot?

The best part is that I didn’t need to read the first book in the series, because the author did a great job of flashing back to the previous book to fill in the blanks. Li Na Zhao is a kickass villain. Seriously, I keep thinking of Lucy Liu’s character in Kill Bill. Amazing!

Gabe and Lauren are a highly passionate couple that fight as hard as they make love with one another. Totally a believable power couple that I rooted for the whole time. Also, Lauren’s little sister Hannah was hilarious and strong. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series that focuses on her.

Read this series, people!
