Favorite Character Friday: Emma!

Favorite Character Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Adria's Romance Reviews that gives readers a chance to celebrate their favorite characters!

Why a weekly meme? Because really, with millions of books out there and more coming out every week, characters are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

How it works: Every week you pick one of your favorite characters and tell every one who it is, what book they're from and WHY they're one of your favorite characters. Be sure to include the blurb and book cover as well! Share the love and maybe someone will read that same book and see why that character is one of your favorites! Unlike the Book Boyfriend meme (which was a great meme), your Favorite Character Fridays choice can be male or female!

Favorite Character: Emma Strickland

Book Title & Author: Taking the Score by Kate Meader

Why is this character your favorite (Feel free to include a favorite quote or scene)? How can she not be? She’s a hard working woman who had to hide her wild side in order to be seen as professional and responsible so that she could help her sister out. That says she knows how to make sacrifices for someone she loves. But it was the Emma that didn’t hide that I really loved. The sassy, daring, bold woman who knew what she wanted and how and didn’t back down. Once she knew Brody was just as attracted to her as she was to him, she had no problem doing some pursuing of her own! I love it when a woman isn’t afraid to take on a bit of the dominance in a relationship!

Emma was funny and caring but she was also nervous that her night job would make her look cheap in the eyes of her boss and his friends not because it mattered what they thought but because she needed her day job desperately. I liked that while she didn’t want to advertise her second job, she also rationalized that she had to work at a strip club and had that mentality of “Whatever you need to do to survive” going for her.

“Don’t test me, Emma. I’m taking you out of here. No one else will touch you.” Ever again, she finished in her head.

Old, bad-girl Emma latched on to the opening his threat presented. Welcome to the party, bitch. “I’m staying. Plenty of clients left who’ll pay top dollar for a chance to touch this ass.”


“Frankly, you’re wasting the room, Mr. Kane. And you’re taking up valuable time when I could be earning so much more with my needier clients.”

Those gray eyes burst into supernovas. “That will happen over my dead body.”

“I wonder if Mr. Smythe-Osborne would enjoy some good old-fashioned American hospitality. Two girls are always better than one, and if Score Property is paying—”

His lips crashed down on hers, devouring, igniting a flame in every cell of her body. Yeah, this.

Book Cover/Blurb:

His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…

Paying down her sister’s debts has left personal assistant 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 get a second job 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.

But 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 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.
