Review of Taken Back (Taken #1) by Cali MacKay & Julie Farrell.

Taken Back (Taken #1) by Cali MacKay 4*
BLURB: Sometimes you need to go back to your past, in order to move on to your future. 
Jax Hunter has spent the last ten years trying to forget his first love Nathan Steele—and the brutal betrayal that derailed everything he’d worked so hard for. Jax has finally gotten his life back together, when Nathan returns to deliver another blow – his company is set to bulldoze the bar he’s built from nothing.
Ever since that summer in high school, Nathan has been denying his feelings for Jax—the only person he’s ever loved. Nathan knows Jax might never forgive him, but when Nathan’s uncle is murdered and Nathan might be next on the hit-list, Jax is the only one he can turn to. 
Jax still doesn’t trust Nathan—not with his bar, and for damn sure, not with his heart. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to resist the undeniable passion between them. Can they overcome their past hurts and learn to trust each other again? Or will another betrayal tear them apart forever? 

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I must admit I wasn't overly sure I'd like this book as I don't usually like second chances in a love story. However this one was done in such a way that the flashbacks to the MCs earlier relationship was never too much nor too long. In fact they were just right and added an element of understanding to the characters of both men. I really enjoyed it and I was even taken by surprise at who murdered the uncle and why (No I won't tell you so don't ask ;)). Overall I enjoyed it enough that I am more than ready to give the next story a go. Especially as it involves one of the secondary characters that I really, really liked.
