Meet Damian Castillo. The man, the legend, the heartbreaker.
As a self-proclaimed man-whore, Damian doesn't believe in love or commitment. In fact, he can't remember the last time he's had feelings for a woman that went beyond hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only things he cares about are his bar, his appearance, and his needs.
But then he meets Alexis.
Meet Alexis Blythe. A small town girl that has lost a lot of love in her life. Wanting to leave her past behind her, she moves to San Francisco looking for a big change. Yet, despite everything she's gone through, she still believes in true love.
But then she meets Damian.
When Alexis shows up into his life, Damian's caught by surprise. She's different. She's sweet, innocent, and feisty. But above all, this woman didn't respond to his charm and piercing-blue eyes the way every other woman did. To Damian, she's his ultimate challenge.
Could Alexis be the girl that will break through Damian's wall of perpetual bachelorhood without getting hurt? Or will Damian remain true his ways and break Alexis's heart and her hopes of true love?

Of course me and all my friends love new adult and romance books and this has everything hot sex scenes, humor, and a cocky amazing looking man named Damian who i really wish was real, but also because I'm huge on character development and i loved seeing Damian grow up decide what he wanted and go for it. This is an amazingly HOT love story between a strong woman who trys to say no but can't and a cocky man who goes for what he wants, what else could a girl ask for?!?
Damian!!! He's hot,cocky and strong willed I love him. Like I said before the only downfall is he isn't real! I honestly wish there were more than 2 books and a novella in this series because i will never have enough Damian, this book easily becomes a fav.
Thats a hard question but my answer would have to be when alexis takes damian to her fav. place in the city, the pottery studio. I love how you can feel their chemistry but at the same time is was such a sweet, uncomplicated moment in there relationship.
I did! but i know it won't be the last time this is one of those books you can NOT just put down in finish later it sucks you in and you need to know what happens and quick!
This book is one of if not THE best book I've read this year you are crazy if you don't get it i have no idea why anyone would low rate this book unless it wasn't what they were expecting but if you like romances and new adult books you will love Damian!
I love Damian's cockiness and his determination!
Damian, I just love him, his cockiness, he's sweet side, he's just ahhhhhhh <3
I can't just pick one....I love when Damian and Alexis first met and the girl he was with was blown off...when Damian and Alexis eat sushi in her apartment.....when they finally sleep together....and when Damian realizes he wants to be with Alexis and only Alexis!
YESSSSS, even though I had to split it up!
I don't know that I would say the audio version is better than the print version I would say that they are equals. The thing I like the most about the audio version is that you get the story from a completely different perspective. What I mean by that is the narrator will emphasize the content in a way that I may not have when I read it so it's like getting a whole new book even though you have already read it.
Damian has so many memorable moments, how could he not he is cocky, arrogant and so much more. For me though it is at the point in time that he realizes how much he needs Alex and how different she is from his mother. So if you want to know what the difference is then you need to either listen or read the book.
I've been able to listen to several of Lynn's other narrations. Lynn is very good at disseminating the different characters and makes it easy to relax and enjoy the book. Audio books take a few moments to get used to since its the same person playing all the players but she does a really good job once you embrace the voice changes.
My emotions where all over the board in this book, from being excited, to being angry. From a few moment of tears to elated joy. There are so many moving parts to their relationship that it is really hard not to identify with the characters and feel the emotions that each of them do.
I highly recommend this book and can't wait for its follow up Taming Damian. I would also recommend that you check out Jessica Wood's other books either in audio or written form as you won't ever be disappointed.
What can I say, Damian is the epitome of cocky male hotness and Alex is sweet commitment. I love how Alex was able to cut thru Damian's hardness and let him find love. But wait.....what the heck cliffhanger!! Now that you've listened to this, get ready for Taming Damian!
Loved listening to this book, loved reading it but listening to it was so much fun. Damian and Alexis are amazing. This was well narrated and was fun to listen to.
The whole book was great and well narrated.
She did an amazing job narrating all the different people.

Wow! I am in LOVE with this book/series!! Who can resist a bad boy who finally finds real feelings for someone... And you know there will be freak outs, trials and tribulations, and most definitely realizations. As in most books the "bad boy" meets an "innocent beauty" and even though they both feel the instant attraction and pull, they must work through their issues to find true love and happiness. I was immediately hooked by the narrators tone and ease of storytelling but keeping you hooked until the last word. I also loved the way we heard both Damian's and Alexis's POV! And yet there is still a prequel and sequel available NOW and not a year or more from now!! I know that some authors feel the "cliffhanger" will keep you wanting for more and the longer they wait the bigger the buildup will be, but I love listening to them all one after the other. I think that the main characters are both lovable and relatable a lot of that comes from the narrators ability to keep you interested and really feel what the author intended. I would definitely read/listen to more of Jessica Wood's books and I will listen to any audios that Lynn Barrington narrates in the future! I am looking forward to reading/listening to the next 2 books in the series and I hope that Lynn narrates them also!! It wouldn't be right, not to mention confusing, if she didn't!
Damian is so hot and sexy with his cocky attitude you can't help but want to know more about this egotistical man. He incinerates you with his wild bartender antics yet makes you feel like you want nothing to do with him and his man whore ways. He meets his match though with Alexis. She is the complete opposite of Damian with her subtle attitude and sweet ways but yet she manages to get the playboy's attention. Unfortunately for Damian Alexis is so much more than what the man the legend the heart breaker had ever intended. Cool your knickers ladies Damian Castillo is going to taker you on a smoking HOT ride!
I absolutely loved Damian. He is the cocky bad boy that gets whatever he wants. Who doesn't want a piece of him?
I did want to listen in one sitting however I knew I couldn't do that! I did enjoy listening to this story as I drove to work each morning!
Heck yes! I've read the book and LOVED LOVED Damian and Alexa. Hearing the story is amazing! It's different from other contemporary writing were its mainly focused on the female and making her weak. In Damian, the main POV is Damian and Alexa is a strong woman, (btw the book has Alternate POVs), and I really liked that
Chap 2!! It's right after Damian meets Alexa and he's with some girl. An hr passed and he couldn't find any release, only way he found it was thinking about his new neighbor ;).
This is actually my first time, it was great!
Damian OF COURSE, because he's an interesting man. He knows what he wants, he can make sure you have a good time!
If you liked this one, you should read the rest of the series. The heartbreaker series is one of my fav!
Damian just because he's who he is and dosent care being open and honest
Too many....but the body shot is hot!!
Did I laugh?? Heck yes I did!!!
Loved it can't wait for more from this author!!!!
