Introducing book 1 in the Bishop Brothers series! A steamy new southern romance series by USA Today Bestselling author duo, Kennedy Fox!
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.
*A contemporary romance with a little southern drama. Each book features a different Bishop brother and can be read as a complete standalone.*
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 5 Stars
Howdy book worms! Who loves a super sexy southern man? Manners, a southern drawl, tight jeans and a cowboy hat get me every time! Why do y’all think I really live in Texas? It sure as hell isn’t for the weather folks. Have you ever forgotten to eat while reading a book? I’m not even kidding, I started Taming Him when I got home from class yesterday and finished at 8:30pm without even realizing that I hadn’t eaten since breakfast. If that isn’t a ringing endorsement for Taming Him, I don’t know what is. I LOVE food and eating…trust me.
Alex Bishop was the perfect Bishop brother to kick this series off. He’s my favorite type of male lead in romance – a player. He had the manners of a properly raised southern gentleman and a dirty mouth. A panty melting combination to be sure.
River was such a fun character to learn about. She was sweet and slow to trust. I was able to easily connect to her as a narrator because the girl overthought everything. She had a rough past with men and was cautious and careful. She was also sassy as all hell and not afraid to stand up for herself. All wonderful traits in a female lead.
Alex’s relationship with River started out steamy as hell and developed into something sweet and tender. Taming Him was actually a sweeter romance than I’m used to seeing from this writing duo. It wasn’t all steamy sex and witty banter. I loved getting to see the relationship develop between River and Alex as they navigated their relationship post vacation. Their story actually featured an all time favorite trope of mine! I won’t share it because I want to avoid spoilers, but it was so well done and I absolutely loved it.
The best part of this book though? The Bishop family. I absolutely LOVED the entire family. Particularly the Bishop brothers. Kennedy Fox has set up such an amazing series, I’m already dying to read Jackson, John and Evan’s books. The epilogue has me so so so hooked and ready for their next release Needing Him. Trust. Me. It promises to be an epic book and features another of my favorite tropes. I am so excited!
My Takeaway: Taming Him started out hot and heavy and developed into a sweet and loving romance story that hooked me. The set up for the rest of the Bishop Brothers series was wonderful and I CAN’T WAIT for Evan’s book in April!
