Taken by Dee Henderson

About the Book
An investigator who knows tragic loss firsthand,
and his new client, missing far too long...
Abducted at the age of sixteen and coerced into assisting the Jacoby crime family, Shannon Bliss has finally found a way out. She desperately wants to resume some semblance of normal life, but she also knows she has some unfinished business to attend to. She might have enough evidence to put her captors behind bars for a very long time.
When Shannon contacts private investigator Matthew Dane, a former cop, to help her navigate her reentry into society, he quickly discovers that gaining her freedom doesn't mean her troubles are over. If the Jacoby family learns she is still alive, they'll stop at nothing to silence her.
If justice is to be done, and if Shannon's life is ever to get on track again, Matthew will need to discover exactly what happened to her--even if it means stirring up a hornet's nest of secrets.

My Thoughts
I wanted to like this book, I really did, but I didn't make it to 30 pages. I loved Dee's early books and I've read the O'Malley series and Uncommon Heroes series several times. So I was ecstatic when she stepped back into the writing world but even though I was a bit disappointed by Full Disclosure, I decided to give her another chance since this book sounded interesting. Sadly this just wasn't the book for me. The beginning was way too detail heavy and I found the age difference between the hero and heroine (especially since he first compared her to his daughter) slightly creepy. I've read a lot of positive reviews so maybe it was just me but I couldn't get into it and I don't have the time right now to read an over 400 page book. I hope you don't just take my opinion and check out some other reviewer's thoughts!
