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 think I just found my new favorite author(s). Want to know how I discovered that little piece of information? The ugly bags under my eyes and my tear-streaked cheeks told me so. Only my favorite authors are capable of making me stay up until I dawn and bawl my eyes like there’s no tomorrow. And Kennedy Fox did just that.
Before y’all start thinking this is a sad book because I cried, let me tell you, it is not sad—except for a tiny part at the beginning of the book. It is a beautiful, fun, romantic, hilarious, fire-in-your-belly inducing story about a two-week vacation in paradise with a charming cowboy, a recently single nurse and the consequences of mixing antibiotics with birth control.
It is divided in two parts. The first part is full of a near death experience, thank yous, vacation bucket lists, partying, a lot of drinks, hangovers, fun between the sheets and also out of them and an unexpected/expected goodbye (that totally made me cry like a baby). The second part is full of unexpected reunions, southern charm, a bunch of gorgeous Bishop family members, taking things slow and new lives.
Every single character in this story is so freaking lovable. When you finish reading this book you’ll have a crush on all of the Bishop brothers, especially Alex.
The main characters, Alex and River, are relationship goals. They are the perfect combination of friendship and chemistry. They can be silly then be serious and everything in between. Everything is so easy and natural between them. They are very different, a city girl and a country boy, yet they are so in sync. I don’t even have enough words to describe how much I love and admire their relationship but trust me when I tell you, you are going to fall in love with them.
Taming Him is the kind of book that ruins you for real relationships, one of those special books that puts your expectations so high they are almost impossible to reach. It is beautiful from the moment Alex and River meet to the moment they say goodbye to the moment they get back together. This duos’ writing is going to steal your heart just like they stole mine. Now go read this book while I go read the rest of their books!
