Taming Him is a full-length 100k+ words standalone novel that´s filled with laughter, sweet heart-warming moments, and plenty of steam! Let Kennedy Fox take you to the South for an adventure that´ll surely leave your Kindles on fire! 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.

I really loved this book. It’s my first Kennedy Fox book and I seriously can’t wait to start the next in this series. There writing style is flawless. I would have never guessed two different people wrote this book together. It flowed so smoothly. It was the perfect length also. Some books are so drawn out or some are too short but this one was just right! I immediately fell in love with the bishop brother’s. I personally love the first book in a series because I get a small glimpse into the background characters who will eventually have their own story. I love a hot cowboy and Alex did not disappoint in that aspect. I love that they net on vacation. I was not expecting that. I also loved Rivers background. All the heartache she went through with losing her sister and that’s what she became a nurse. I liked how Alex was this Playboy but once he net his soulmate that all changed. I really do believe when people meet the right person the stars align and they will become who they are meant to be. And that was exactly the case with Alex. Without giving spoilers the second part of the book shocked me with a twist I never saw coming. I love when a book is unpredictable. Most romance stories are HEA but we read for the story, the build up to the HEA and I just love being surprised. And man that was a huge surprise. The ending had me tearing up. It was so sweet. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who likes a sweet sexy romance!
