Publisher's Summary

Her father has let her down her whole life. Her brother betrayed her in the worst way possible. And her past relationship experiences with men have been less than great. Now Lyla is pouring all her energy into her band, Vintage. So when they receive an offer to sign with TMS Records, it seems that things are finally turning around. The last thing that Lyla wants is a man getting in the way. Tom Carter loves women. More accurately, Tom enjoys screwing lots of women. After Vintage's manager breaks her leg skiing, Tom steps in as tour manager, and Lyla finds herself on tour with the man-whore of rock. Put one perpetually horny Tom and one sex-resistant Lyla together, and it equals a recipe for disaster. Or so you'd think. But a friendship is formed - a closeness neither of them expected. Will the sex storm that is Tom Carter finally find himself tamed by the rock chick with a hardened heart?

    "Good , but not great!"

    This was super good...but just not on the same level as Jake and Tru's story. I honestly think it was the narration... If maybe just one narrator would have read this, I could stay in character better. IDK... plus the whole I want you so bad, but no, your a whore thing...was a bit much in the beginning... Plus we all know Tom as the horn dog...but in this, he was just so not Tom... Like I said...it was good...but not great..

    Definitely worth a credit, but maybe not a buy... yes to sale...most definitely...

    "GREAT STORY BUT...WORST FEMALE NARRATOR EVER!!!!!!"
    Would you listen to Taming the Storm again? Why?

    Aletha makes all the guys sound like complete idiots & doofs instead of hot and sexy, so at this point, I might try, I'm not sure if I can. I haven't even finished it the first time yet. I was really looking forward to this book, before I heard her.


    What didn’t you like about Aletha George and Nelson Hobbs ’s performance?

    Nelson was good, forget about Aletha, she is f$%#@g terrible ;-( If it wasn't for Nelson's parts I would give the performance no stars, or even better yet- minus stars.


    Any additional comments?

    Doesn't anyone listen to the book before it is put up for sale. It is a shame that she is so terrible. She takes too much away from a good story line with her terrible voices. Please don't use her again!!! I can't stress enough how bad she is.

    "Such a disappointment"

    I really don't have any positive things to say about this audiobook. I liked Jake and Tru's story well enough to buy this book. I just couldn't understand either character. I didn't accept the reasons for attraction between the characters were believable. The lead female was grossly immature and annoying and 'great rack' aside, not worth pursuing even for a self professed man slut. Not enough time was put into making either of the characters likeable. The intimate scenes were bland. The female reader didn't help the book to be more appealing, but to be honest, I doubt any reader could have improved it. I'm hoping this is a road bump of a book put out by Samantha Towle and that she puts more effort into her next one.

    "Third Book a Let Down"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I do not recommend. It was a big let down from the first two. The female narrator was very green and did not bring out the characters or interest in the book. The male narrator did a good job.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Aletha George and Nelson Hobbs ?

    Kate Rudd


    Do you think Taming the Storm needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No follow up book needed.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "I WAS SUCKED IN AS ALL THE PASSION & PAIN UNFOLDED"

    If you've listened to the previous books then you know Tom is the sexy man-whore and Bassist in the Band TMS with a carefree love em and leave em attitude and a bad reputation, that is until someone's life is threatened and he makes a pact with God. Lyla's well aware of Tom's reputation and she's resisted him twice before but when they have to go on tour together the sizzling chemistry, his raw sex appeal and his persistent Alpha magnetism makes her strike a bargain that's going to bring pleasure, joy and hot hot sex but heartache and pain is around the corner.

    Two characters battling Demons from their pasts struggling to find happiness who are thrown together makes a very volatile mix and a powerful and enjoyable listen as they play an intense sexual cat and mouse game.... but who catches who? There are great secondary friends who are like a tight family and also a sub plot of Lyla's brother's terrible betrayal and the emotional heartbreaking consequences that brings to both of them. There's several appearances of Jake (book 1) finishing in his and Tru's wedding.

    A well written and well narrated rock n roll romance that didn't disappoint.

    Worth a credit? A roller coaster relationship that had an expiry date, a likeable Heroine that denied the attraction but wanted more and a damaged Hero whose hard shell was protecting his already shattered heart and, for a few passion filled weeks they had it all. A very hot, emotional listen with witty banter, heartache, drama, jealousies and pain but thankfully much needed character development leads to a tear filled HEA ending.... and so worth a credit.

    "An ok read"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Differant performers, the couple that performed this just didn't click and it sounded forced thoughout the reading.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Samantha Towle? Why or why not?

    There were a few great scenes that I couldn’t help but laugh. One gross line about a girl and playboy Tom that actually makes me want to vomit just thinking about it now. I must say the “mutt and bof” were not as cute as other nicknames for a man slut and a vibrator that I’ve heard. I will say the final twist when Tom finally bears his sole as to why he became who is shocked me and I definitely didn’t expect that. The story was not as well done as Jake and Tru’s story. If this was the first book in the series or the first story from the author I would not even bother getting the rest of the series.However all in all i would be willing to try another book by her because i liked the 1st 2 books in the series.


    What didn’t you like about Aletha George and Nelson Hobbs ’s performance?

    I didn’t like the Aletha George’s imitation of a guy. Make the band sound fake and unappealing. Nelson Hobbs did well. Much better and saved the book. The first 3 hours I debated whether I wanted to actually finish the book or return it. The first three and a half hours of listening were boring and hard to get into the storyline and frankly I just can’t remember it. It was about that time the decent stingers came out and were entertaining. At about the 5.5 hours is when I noticed Mr. Hobbs entered the story and the reading seemed to click a little better.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Taming the Storm?

    I would have cut out the blowjob after anal sex portion of the scene.

    "Great Story/Inexperienced Narrator"

    Loved the story but disliked the female narrator. Changing the narrator on book 3 is bad enough but the poor girl sucked at the male voices.
