Since I usually give romance novels close to failing grades (except for Sandra Brown's Rainwater and Linda Winstead Jones' Raintree: Haunted) why woul..Show More »d I give this one a 5 Star rating? The same rating as I would give The Beautiful Ruins, the Book Thief, the Book of Unholy Mischief? Well, that would be comparing apples and oranges so it isn't a fair comparison.
However, as a Romance novel, this one stands out far above all others!
The key difference is that the protagonist is male and he narrates the story to the reader/listener as if in casual conversation. And the dialogue is definitely male--locker room style, blunt, crude and perfect for the story. It is so on the mark, I have trouble realizing that it is written by a woman.
All the characters are colorful, entertaining and totally different than those found in ordinary romance stories. Great find. I just can't figure out how the author will follow up on this one, much less top it but I'm ready to find out!
HAVE I TOLD YOU HOW COCK STIFFENLY BEAUTIFUL YOU ARE? I will admit that I did not want to like this. This is suppose to be a romance and it is, pl..Show More »us. The plus is erotica or porn. I have listened to porn that had less dirty talk. Drew, the main character is the narrator of the story and he starts off as a real A@@hole. By the end, Chase has you liking the guy. I actually have a son, just like Drew. Mouthy, seems hard and unfeeling, but is a marshmallow inside. Those women with the patience to get past the hard shell outside will be pleasantly surprised.
SORRY, I DON'T SPEAK VAGINA Narrator is excellent
This has been a review by a Male in a Female's World.
What happened to strong determined Kate? Apparently she was asking the same question. Hate is a strong word, but I hatd this story. I finished it beca..Show More »use I wanted to give a complete review.
Issues: 1> No real plot just a bunch of pity-partying going on by Kate, 2> 10 chapters of one huge misunderstanding where Kate was just as much to blame as Drew. When did lying become dismissable? Why wasn't her fault emphsized more in the story to everyone? It all started with her lie. Seriously this was almost juvenile. 3> The misunderstanding was stupid that it should not have taken 10 chapters to address. It made me fall out of love with this couple. 4> It felt more like an opportunity to highlight Kate and Billy Warren's relationship with all the flashback and him being there. He wasn't all that great of a guy either so to now try to give him some friend with benefit redeaming quality WT*. Kissing? Really. Whose suppos to believe it's truly over if you would still kiss. Perhaps that is the backdrop for DeeDee story in Tamed.
It's a very solid "romantic comedy" listen. This book is as good as the first in the series. I loved book 1 tangled but was disappointed by the follo..Show More »w up story. Because book 2 was a bit of a bore I didn't plan on downloading book 3, but a friend told me it was more similar to book 1. I am so glad I did download tamed - this is a very entertaining read. Emma Chase really finds her stride using the male POV. It's humerous, smart and fun. I hope she puts more male POV stories out there, cause I for one am a fan.
This book was laugh out loud funny!!! It was like The Hangover meets Tangled, I loved it!! It's a typical Emma Chase book and that is a great thing! ..Show More »And it's narrated by Sebastian York so that makes it even better.
