A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…
Paying down her sister’s debts has left Emma Strickland with little more than the thrift store suit on her back. And as if the suckfest couldn’t get worse, she’s forced to moonlight as a waitress to support herself and her cat. At a strip club. Her uptight, sexy-as-hell boss Brody Kane can never find out.
Texas property tycoon Brody Kane hired Emma for her spreadsheet skills, but her prim and proper demeanor sealed the deal. There’s no room in his life for a sexy distraction … and yet, he can’t stop lusting after the delicious Ms. Strickland. And then he takes an important client to a Chicago strip club and gets the worst lap dance in adult entertainment history. From Emma.
Now that he knows his office good girl has a naughty streak, Brody makes it his mission to uncover her secrets, one steamy, illicit, over-the-desk encounter at a time. But Emma is hiding more than her side job, and her final secret could end up destroying them both.

Book Review: 5 stars
I LOVE Kate Meader’s books! Period! She surprises me with every book she writes, they are always authentic, original and so damn hot! And this book had a thing I love so much: IT WAS HILARIOUS!!
Taking the Score is the story of Brody, the sexy nerd and domineering billionaire and Emma, his personal assistant. They had a secret attraction on each other but the “taboo” of having an “affair” with the boss/employee was a NO NO for both of them. Until Brody got a awful but arousing lapdance from Chardonnay—Emma’s new name as a strep dancer. That dance lead to a very angry fucking against the wall, and then to a Pretty-Woman-Kinda-Purchase with lots of more sexy moments, jealous nipples, a crazy love/hate relationship with Kevin the cat, lots of lies, secrets and possessive actions between these two great characters. Did I mention the sex was hot? Well, I can guarantee some kinky—not hardcore level I might say—demands from my new nerd book boyfriend Brody 😉
Like I said before, I loved this book. The writing was awesome, well paced and the descriptions were super cool, especially when Kevin was on “scene” hahahaha. Also, I was laughing my ass off with this book. Every joke was so nerdy and perfect for me. One of the nerdy things was the geek collection, including some Tardis clothing. And of course, the development of the characters was great. I admire Emma’s sense of independence and her need to be the best big sister ever, even though I wanted to KILL Emma’s sister UGH! Brody’s domineering tendencies were a little asshole-ish at some point. Not that I’m complaining about, I need my dose of bastards in my book boyfriends collection. The way Brody asked for forgiveness at the end of the book was simply AWESOME. I really thought everything would end in a different way, but, as I said, Kate always surprises me, and I totally loved it.
All in all, I recommend this book for a funny, sexy and almost angst free read. 100% recommended. I can’t wait for the next book of the series. I’m sure it’ll be better…. I’m making some theories on my own Hahahahaha
