Take Down (Billionaire's Club: New Orleans #3)



Powerful. Dominant, Unforgettable. He commands submission at all costs.

Cage fighter, Gabriel Devereaux, a man of barely leashed power, is known as the Bayou Beast.

There is one woman he will do anything , pay any amount to possess.

Karina Armistead, has come a long way from the innocent girl Gabriel used to know. An internationally known singer, she can have anything she wants. But everything tells her that getting involved with the Bayou Beast may leave her wrecked beyond repair.

Little does Karina Armistead know, but Gabriel has decided that she will be his.

He will destroy anything or anyone who stands in his way.


Sebastian Delacroix, Raphael Jerroult, and Gabriel Devereaux are champions in their chosen sports, victors in business, and legends in the bedroom. Each one knows success is won through through blood and sweat, and all have paid their dues.

One by one, each man reunites with an old flame, each of whom had good reason for walking away. Now each man is in for the fight of his life, with the biggest prize of all on the line: love.

My Review ~ Rebecca


Urban Dictionary Definition

For those who don’t know, “quickie” is the term given to a sexual romp that is exactly that – quick. It is to the point, exciting and usually quite intense. And it is often more animalistic and lust-driven than regular “romantic” sex.

The Billionaire’s Club: New Orleans novellas, by Mallery Malone, are steamy contemporary romance stories centered around the Billionaire’s Club: The wealthiest, most powerful men in New Orleans.  They are used to having whatever they want, whenever they want it.

Take Down is a fabulous quickie – Exciting, intense, lust-driven, quick and animalistic!

It`s my first outing with this author but a fast and furious one! I normally steer clear of Billionaire books and throw the submission word in and I run a mile. Not my thing, doesn’t float my boat however the blurb to this one is deceptive because that’s not the type of book it is.

Gabriel Devereaux is a professional cage fighter known as The Bayou Beast, a man possessed with an urge for revenge that has driven him for many years. He`s become a little jaded and bored with life, fighting in illegal matches all over the world for thrills as even his multi-billion dollar businesses bring him no satisfaction.

Karina Armistead is an internationally known singer whose previous history with Gabriel nearly broke her.

When Gabriel decides it’s time for their paths to meet again and to take his revenge he doesn’t factor in the emotional and physical response that she pulls from him even after all this time, his plans quickly become derailed as he realises he wants more with Kari than to use her, he wants her again, mind, body and soul.

“I want to be your white knight. Not to save you – you saved yourself just fine. I want to be your champion, standing beside you while you take on the world. I want you to be what I live for, what I fight for.”

This is a quickie that’s a perfect blend of hot yet romantic. The chemistry between Gabriel and Kari in and out of the bedroom is intense and sweet at the same time. Two people torn apart by the actions of others trying to find their way back together thru a history of hurt and mistrust.

A very satisfying quickie and a surprise to me as I don’t like novellas usually yet finished this one sated and smiling!!
