The Takeover Effect

The Takeover Effect is a big, fat, luscious chocolate truffle of a book.  It’s funny, it’s sexy, it’s heartbreaking, it’s romantic; it luxuriates in the playgrounds of the rich while giving us down-to-earth people to root for, and it’s grounded strongly in a central family that provides a ...

Practice Makes Perfect
