Thank you to Kennedy Fox for providing me with a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
Alex Bishop is your typical cowboy.
Charming, sexy, and wears a panty-melting smirk.
Working on the ranch helped build his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He’s every girl’s wet fantasy and he knows it too. Alex doesn’t follow the rules of your typical playboy bachelor. After wining and dining his dates and giving them the best night of their lives, he always sends flowers and calls the next day—even if it’s to say, let’s just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all and his southern blood knows how to be a gentleman. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.
River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romantic bliss, she finds out he’s married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. Tired of cheaters and liars, she’s set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there’s an all-you-can-drink margarita bar, anyway? That’s what she tells herself until she bumps into the right guy who can make all those bad memories disappear.
Even if it’s only temporarily.
Two weeks on the beach is what they both need. No strings attached, no expectations, no broken hearts. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll change the entire course of their lives in just nine short months.
**A complete standalone contemporary romance with a little southern drama**
I’ve stated in previous Kennedy Fox reviews that they are the writing duo who turned me on to the romance genre. I’m not a fan of the bodice-rippers and all that jazz. Instead, I love a meaty story with a plausible storyline, realistic characters, and emotion that feels genuine. Kennedy Fox nails it every time.
One of my favorite parts of Taming Him is River’s kickass attitude. She’s a strong woman who tolerates no crap, and is in charge of her life. And she’s a nurse! (I have an insane level of respect for people in the nursing profession.) Love. It. And then there’s Alex, who makes for a perfectly balanced counterpart with his own level of sass and snark. And oh, that Southern charm. . .
As usual, I was so completely invested in the progression of their relationship that I felt a bit of withdrawal when I finished. (This “book hangover” happens every time I finish one of their books. I haven’t yet decided if I should be mad about it or not.) I can’t wait for you all to meet Alex and River. They may be my favorite KF pair yet. ~Amber
