New York Times bestselling author Shayla Black invites readers to explore the desires of her Wicked Lovers...

Racing against time, NSA agent Joaquin Muñoz is searching for a little girl who vanished twenty years ago with a dangerous secret. Since Bailey Benson fits the profile, Joaquin abducts the beauty and whisks her to the safety of Club Dominion—before anyone can silence her for good.
At first, Bailey is terrified, but when her kidnapper demands information about her past, she’s stunned. Are her horrific visions actually distant memories that imperil all she holds dear? Confined with Joaquin in a place that echoes with moans and breathes passion, he proves himself a fierce protector as well as a sensual Master who’s slowly crawling deeper into her head…and her heart. But giving in to him might be the most delicious danger of all.
Because Bailey soon learns that her past isn’t the only mystery. Joaquin has a secret of his own—a burning vengeance in his soul. The exposed truth leaves her vulnerable and wondering how much about the man she loves is a lie, how much more is at risk than her heart. And if she can trust him to protect her long enough to learn the truth.


  • Entertaining

    Not one of Shayla Black's best, but this unlikely story was an entertaining tale nevertheless. All the pregnancies and "meaningful looks" shared between characters from other books got tedious pretty fast though.
  • Wonderful

    This story is so enjoyable! I like how it's a couple who don't really know the BDSM world, but should. I found Joaquin's "realization" to be a refreshing addition!! Worth the read!
  • Loved it!

    His to Take is a suspenseful and deeply seductive journey that will have you at the edge of your seat. Thrown together under the threat of nefarious evildoers, Joaquin and Bailey grapple with the traumas of the past to secure a bright and loving future. I loved these characters! Bailey is lyrically beautiful, smoothing Joaquin’s rough edges and exposing the love waiting to embrace him. Joaquin provides the strength and security Bailey needs to uncover a life she never knew existed. This book gives you everything you need and more – laughter, tears, pulse-pounding action, nail-biting suspense, and sexy scenes of wild passion. The Wicked Lovers is a phenomenal series that gets better with every book. I can't wait for more!

  • Wickedly Awesome Read!

    Some how, some way, Shayla Black has done it again! From the very first page of this book, Mrs. Black pulls you in with action, mystery, and ultimately a love story. We have not seen much of Joaquin in the previous books and the reason is revealed in this book! If you can feel everything for one character- from dislike to adoration- you will feel them for Joaquin. To be honest, I was not a fan of Joaquin throughout most of the book. He is selfish and hard. However, if ever there was a character to redeem himself, Joaquin is it. As if you needed more emotion, Bailey's story will make you rage with anger and cry tears of anguish. The two of them are frustrating and endearing. Don't worry- as with the other Wicked Lovers books- there is some steamy hot romance and BDSM is definitely involved! I love that we get to visit our Wicked Lover's friends in this book. I do recommend reading the other Wicked Lover's books before reading this one. It's not a requirement, but I feel like the reader will be more connected to the story if he/she has read the other Wicked Lover's books first. I encourage you to run- not walk- to read this book. I devoured the book in about 2 days because it was just THAT GOOD! You will not be disappointed!
