Robyn Matthers is returning home to the States, after living in England for the past nine years. Robyn is returning home to be near her father who is seriously ill in hospital. Robyn wants to take charge of her father's rundown roadhouse and the local ice hockey team, that her father manages, The Portage Panthers.

At the airport in America Robyn meets the gorgeous Cole Ryan and the confident and sassy Robyn kisses him as they part and invites him to her father's roadhouse that she plans to clean up and redecorate and re launch. Cole is also a talented ice hockey player that Robyn's team desperately need as they are currently having a bad losing streak.

But behind Robyn's confidence she has yet to come to terms with a tragic event in her past. When returning home stirs up past events and Robyn as got to face some painful memories could Cole be the one to help her take charge of her life?

This is the latest novel from Mandy Baggot and it is another smash hit of a read. The plots to Mandy Baggot's books are so clearly written that the plot plays out in your minds eye projecting like a film. I liked that the main character for a girl was quite strong and knows her own mind and goes for exactly what she wants even though underneath she is quite venerable especially when it comes to her past. Cole makes a great hero and heartthrob in the story. Not read any of Mandy Baggot's books yet? Well what are you waiting for, go on give yourself a good read this book is an excellent read.

Do you believe in love at first sight? What about happy endings?

Robyn Matthers does not. There is no such thing as a normal relationship. Robyn is coming home from living in England for 9 years to take care of her father, who had a heart attack. She left after a horrible incident and had not been back since.

Cole Ryan will never care for anyone again. Caring means they will leave. Not gonna do that again!

The connecting flight in O'hare Robyn literally runs into Cole. He helps her to their mutual plane as they have discovered to got to Portage. Robyn talks her head off. Nervous as can be she has to face her father and her past and Take Charge and fix the Roadhouse and Hockey Team her dad owns that have gone down hill.

I absolutely loved this book. Robyn is a great character. She has a past that she'd like to forget but coming home has made that impossible. She has spunk and a love for hockey and her dad's Roadhouse.

Cole also has a past. He is sweet and HOT and who wouldn't want him!?

Can they both pull together put their pasts behind them and find the love that is truly there?

I gave this book five baskets. Had I not had a minor emergency with my oldest son I would have finished this book yesterday morning!

If my review isn't enough to get you to buy this book one word TURKEY!!!!!!!!!!!! Could not stop laughing!

I enjoyed reading Takine Charge. Robyn returns to the small town where she grew up in Michigan. She is returning from London, where she has lived for quite a few years. She meets Cole at the airport. It just so happens he is also going to Portage, Michigan. I loved Robyn, who is a strong female that lives for hockey and likes to take apart cars. Cole is a hot, smart, caring guy and a great hockey player. It's a wonderful story about two wounded people who fall in love. There are a whole cast of characters in Portage who add laughs to the story. Great story!

I loved this book! It was a fun read! I love the characters! Robyn is independent, headstrong, opinionated and vulnerable all at the same time. Cole is reserved, confused and desperate to find something in this world that will ground him. Together they are cute, funny and perfect in their imperfections. I laughed so much through this book! Yes there are serious subject matters in this book but that is not all the book is about. It leaves room for humor and never do you feel a bunch of unnecessary angst and turmoil. I really enjoyed this book so much I have reread it already.

A good story that held my interest and flowed nicely. If you like romance with some suspense mixed in, you will enjoy this story about a young woman that returns to her home town after being away for almost a decade and facing the ghosts from her past.

After spending the last nine years running away from her past in London, Robyn Matthers is heading home to Portage, Michigan after her father falls ill and is admitted to the hospital. She is going to help him out by taking charge of his rundown bar, the Roadhouse and failing hockey team, the Portage Panthers.

Cole Ryan is a hockey player from Chicago, Illinois, who is moving to Portage, Michigan to work for a pharmaceutical company and escape his own painful past.

Robyn and Cole meet at the airport in Chicago while waiting for the connecting flight to Portage. When her backpack's strap breaks, Cole helps her retrieve the items that fell to the floor. They talked during the whole fight, and when they arrive in Portage, Robyn gives Cole a sizzling kiss goodbye and invites him to visit her father's bar. But coming home isn't going to be a bed of roses for Robyn, she's got a lot of issues to deal with and so does Cole. Can Robyn and Cole leave their troubled pasts behind, give into their mutual attraction, and take charge of their future?

Taking Charge is a fun romance novel that will keep you in stitches. Written in the third person narrative, the author weaves a heartwarming tale of romance with drama, comedy, and hockey added in the mix. The story has a lot of depth and emotions as it realistically deals with family and relationship issues, it will pull at your heartstrings. But it also has a lot of comedic relief in the form of the sassy one-liners, and tension filled drama in the hockey scenes.

The author has created a quirky cast of characters who are realistic, engaging and complex people. I absolutely loved Robyn's sassy personality: she's strong, bossy, feisty and demanding, she's a tell it like it is kind of girl!
