~Review: Kalon (Take Over Series #2) by T.L. Smith~

He wants me dead because I’m a threat to him. He tried to murder my Father. Little did he know that you don’t mess with my family?

I will get my revenge. Then I’ll take down anyone else who stands in my way and I will make them pay.

I’m not your average woman. I deal with thugs and murders. I’ve been broken and tortured. But don’t mistake this for weakness. I am far from weak. I should be feared and definitely not be messed with.

I have a Greek God by my side. His name is Stefanos and he worships the ground I walk on, and I adore him. He gives me the strength I need for the path I’ve chosen.

People in my business know me as Krinos, and I am not to be trifled with.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

My name is Krinos and I am being trained to lead one of the largest drug operations in the world.  I am my father’s daughter and will do whatever it takes to repay those that have hurt my family.  My father was ambushed and is in a coma.  I will take my revenge on all those that have tried to harm my family and they need to be afraid, very afraid.  I am not what you would think of as a normal woman because even though my body has been tortured and my soul scared I will not be broken by those that would destroy me.  By my side I have my ‘Greek God’ and he would die to protect me.  He is a stone cold killer and he would do anything to keep me safe. 

I am working to strengthen my alliances and will be using some of my old ones to locate the man that ordered the hit on my father.  He will pay for what he has done and I will be the one that administers that payment.  Stefanos is very possessive of me and does not want another man to look at or touch me and that makes it hard sometimes to do my job.  If you look for the silver lining in what has happened to my father it is that my mother is once again by his side and I don’t think she will ever leave again.  My mother is the love of my father’s life and she is his Kalon, his perfect love. So I am truly surprised when a strange young woman says that she is my sister. She tells me that she is my father’s old girlfriend’s daughter and that her mother kicked her out because she wanted to meet me.  Her name is Carmen and she wants to be like me, how can I believe her?  My father has never kept any secrets from me and this is a huge one. 
As if I don’t have enough to focus on I now have a sister that is a little bit crazy and wants to work with me.  I try to explain what happens to women in this world and how it would break her but she doesn’t believe me.  Finally I show her the scars that cover my body given to me by a mad man that didn’t want me to lead after my father.  Maybe she will take a step back and really look at what she wants to get into if she tries to be like me.  I feel like Carmen wants something from me and I’m not sure what it is.  Stefanos tells me that I own his soul and I now know that he also owns mine and we cannot be apart.  Life is so very complicated when you are a 'Drug Princess' and have a 'Greek God' at your side loving and protecting you.

Will Carmen go back to her mother and leave this life behind and if not will I able to protect her?  Can Stefanos and I make a life for ourselves in this uncertain violent world that we live in?  Will I be able to take my revenge on the man that had my father shot? ~CJ

Hero –Stefanos: 4.5 stars
Heroine –Krinos: 4.5 stars
Steam: 5 stars 
Plot: 4 stars 
Cliffhanger: Yes

Would I recommend this book: Yes! If you like to read about sex, violence and revenge then you must read this story about a woman that is a true ‘BITCH’. Don’t let’s forget also thrown in by the author is the Mafia, a Motorcycle Club and a kidnapping by a deranged business associate, all of this and more can be found on the pages of this book.

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! I loved the first two books in the series and can’t wait to read the next installment in the Take Over Series.
