Blog Tour: Krinos (Take Over #1) by T. L. Smith

Krinos (Take Over, #1)

Title: Krinos
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date: May 17, 2014

My life was simple. Follow instructions, learn the family business and be prepared to take over when the time has come. My name is Eliza, although people in the business know me as Krinos. One thing you should know about me is that my father is a drug lord, the boss in these parts.

I am prepared to do whatever it takes to step up to the challenge and run the family business, to make my father proud, a business filled with drugs, sex and death. What I’m not prepared for though is him, the Greek god who walks into my life and threatens to rock my world.

Now, my life has just got complicated. But don’t misunderstand, complicated is not a weakness. My father was not a man to cross, so expect nothing less from me. I am my father’s daughter, and I will be 
the boss.

3.5 Stars!

A great start to a fully loaded, sexy, thrilling, drama of a woman taking over a man's world. Krinos is the only child of a powerful drug lord, who is learning daddy's business to eventually take over all controls. She loves here daddy and will do everything in her power to show him she is made for her upcoming role. 
The story line was great, my only complaint is how quickly the story jumped from one scene to the next with little details in between.  I think I would have enjoyed the read more if it had more depth. I was disappointed in the sex scenes only because they were so short and lacked the emotional intensity I am so used to reading. I never felt that intense sexual connection with the characters, I never felt sexually exhausted after reading any of their sex scenes which is a big bummer for me. The action scenes were also short lived, they came, the shot, someone died, move on or they took, they tortured, someone died, move on. The lack of detail left me feeling disconnected throughout many of the scenes. I really loved where the author was going with the story, but due to the lack of details, I never felt apart of the story or connected to the characters. I give Krinos 3.5 Stars. It is a great short read with room for improvement.
