Never trust a man who wears nothing more than a cowboy hat and ripped jeans who asks if you’d like to save a horse and ride a . . . well, you get the picture.
That should’ve been enough for me to walk away.
I’ve been warned on several occasions about southern men—with their sexy accents, charming manners, and the ability to easily get any woman in bed—which is something I’ll be avoiding.
Being a professional photographer has many perks—traveling around the world, calling all the shots, and working with subject matter that isn’t bad to look at—but Colton Langston with his washboard abs and baby blue eyes, could care less about my current project. He’s trouble, I know it, and he’s determined to make me work for every single photo. When I’m forced into riding lessons, I get way more than I ever bargained for, and by the time my trip is over, I’m in too deep.
Being with him was thrilling, but falling for him was unpredictable.
And ignoring him will be impossible.
REVIEW: 3/5 Stars
So I read Taming Him which is the first book in The Bishop Brothers series by these authors, and I loved it and picking up this book in the stand-alone series by the same authors, I thought I would absolutely love it. And yeah I was kind of disappointed. I liked the characters, and I enjoyed their romance and the direction it went and everything. But I just think the writing wasn’t the best it could have been honestly. The writing was cheesy at times, it didn’t feel mature in other points. I just didn’t like the writing for this novel, and while I devoured the book, I mainly devoured it for the characters and honestly wanting to know what happens to them in the end seeing their romance play out. I think again the writing was just off for me and I didn’t really feel like it sold it for me. But overall the storyline was interesting and I wanted to see more of the characters, but mainly they kept me coming back to see things through. I did like how the conflict wasn’t really full of drama, just them trying to do what they thought was best for themselves and each other.
I liked that the climax in this book wasn’t something full of drama and more about them following what they love. I mean overall the book was okay, but honestly not something I’ll ever read over. I do think the Bishop Brothers series is much better than this series honestly, but I do enjoy the characters in this one! I liked that Presley was a bookstagramer because it made me relate to her a lot! I liked that she was involved in the book community. That was a funny aspect of this novel, but I liked that she was able to get Colton involved in her work! That was super sweet and cute! But overall I just think this novel wasn’t as great as I had hoped it would be, and I think I might just finish the Bishop Brothers series instead, because honestly that was way more interesting. I might see the other books in this stand-alone series and see if I feel that way about them all, or if it was just this one.
I just think that overall this book had great characters, had a great romance, and such a really good storyline; but in the end the writing just wasn’t there for me sadly.
