Add to Goodreads:
I received an offer from the author to read Tame Me in exchange for an honest review. The book description was intriguing and so I accepted. It took some time for me to at last read it because of other commitments. I thoroughly enjoyed this emotionally-charged book.
Wren Davis has a heavy burden on her shoulders. Her sister is in the hospital, and she is the only one who can take care of her. While she has recently finished her degree in special education, she needs a good paying job right away. When she’s offered the position of housekeeper for Stellan Zane at a salary beyond what she could have imagined, she eagerly accepts with relief, knowing her sister’s care can continue.
Stellan is used to getting what he wants, and he sets his sights on Wren. While he does not do relationships, he soon realizes more than the physical is involved. When two of his exes begin to make trouble, things get complicated, and Zane does not do complicated, but he can’t resist Wren.
Can the powerful attraction between them grow to more when Stellan’s secrets threaten, or when all is revealed will it drive them apart?
Tame Me is an absorbing story with complex characters. Ms. Leslie’s writing pulled me in and kept me reading until the end. While there are a few grammatical errors, the characters are so compelling, I overlooked them.
Wren Davis is a great heroine. She is determined to fulfill her obligations that would cause others to give up. Her love for her sister touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. While she realizes Stellan does not show his emotions, her willingness to open her heart to him, had me rooting for her to get past his defenses.
Stellan is my favorite kind of hero. He’s a bad boy who has a tender heart under his tough exterior. With all he endured when his parents died, it’s no wonder he does not trust anyone other than his siblings. I loved seeing him open up to Wren and begin to trust her.
This is a very erotic romance, and the sexual scenes are explicit, yet emotional as well and extremely sensual. The chemistry between Wren and Stellan is off the charts.
If you enjoy a love story with deep emotion between the hero and heroine, a story where you’ll be breathlessly waiting to find out how they will ever find their happy ending, then you will love Tame Me as much as I did. I can’t wait to read Dylan’s story. In fact, I immediately borrowed it through Kindle Unlimited once I finished this one. Happy reading!
