Release Blitz! Taking Jana By Rissa Brahm

It’s her turn to drive.
Men take from Jana. Her dad and brother: money. Stage-side gawkers: her dignity. Still, she finished nursing school, won a spot in Manhattan’s top ER—thanks to no man. But when her dad’s business and heart fails, ever-loyal Jana Park must return to the stripper’s pole. Now even her boss’s chauffeur ogles her in the rearview. Faux-kindness—and irrefutable heat—aside, she glares back.
Because screw ’em all.
Chauffeur Antonio Ruiz is done with his cheating wife, the city, the almighty buck. His seaside home in Mexico calls. One last gig for his biggest client, the city’s strip club king, then he’s out. Except that the sharp, exotic, petite powerhouse of a woman he’s been hired to drive—day in-day out, glaring at him with those deep, solemn eyes—takes him over. If he could pierce her shield of doubt, he’d bring her home, far from this hell.
But, no. Jana’s got to take the wheel and drive. Away from her family’s abuse, her boss’s clutches…and toward Antonio’s true brand of love.
The road’s rocky. Will they make it to paradise? Or will it all go south… in the city.

Ok I totally have to admit the first reason why I signed up for Taking Jana is because Jana was a part of the title, even if it’s spelled wrong  ;) (Obviously I spell my name Janna so this is an ongoing joke for me when I see it spelled Jana).  The second reason was because the blurb and cover really caught my attention.  Especially the cover, I really love it.  Now normally I don’t mention those type of things in my reviews but this time I really wanted to give props to the cover.  Okay on to my actual review of Taking Jana.

I have not read the previous book, Tempting Isabel, but I plan to read it as soon as I can.  Luckily, I didn’t need to, to fully enjoy Taking Jana.  What would you do to help your family out?  I think we all ask ourselves that question at some point in our lives, I know I have and what I have done to help mine when they needed it and no this Janna didn’t work the stripper pole but if it had come down to that I can’t say I wouldn’t have if I needed to.  That is the situation that Jana is, a previous stripper who finally is working her dream job only to have to go back to her life before she was a nurse.  I give it up to Jana, most people wouldn’t do what she did for themselves let alone their family, not once but twice.  I loved Antonio’s character as well, he was scorned in his own way but thanks to a cheating wife, but he wants to protect Jana. 

Taking Jana is the perfect mix of sexual tension, plot twists, and emotions.  I really enjoyed Taking Jana and look forward to not only reading the previous book but the next one as well.
