Taming Mad Max was more than what I thought it would be...it was so romantic and so funny at times. The main story is about Max and Kari, but then there are 2 other love stories going on at the same time. The book is well balanced between the stories and you will cry at a few spots in the book. This book is worth the read! Give it a try! You will be soooo happy you did! This is one of my all time favorite books now, and I look forward to reading more by Theresa Ragan. I read the book in one day because I could not put it down!

This story could be fun, but it's not. It's like reading a romance novel and looking at the pamphlets on the wall at your doctor's office while waiting for your appointment. I honestly gave up after the fourth chapter. I couldn't read another health lesson about nutrition, it completely detracted from the flow and romance of the story; or buy into the idea that Kari, a woman in her thirties with a master's degree, who was infatuated with the hero and grew up in his town, had no idea that he had sisters, that his dad died right after their sexual encounter, that a 200+ lb. physically fit pro line backer cannot eat cottage cheese or bagels but can have wine and italian food, or that you don't tell a man he is going to be a father by passing his mother, and his employer a note with said information. It was all too ridiculous. I recommend you save your time and look for something more thoughtful to read.

Probably because I kept running into places that are nearby. (I found out after reading it that the author lives in my area). There were several problems with this, it was waaaay too long. Every person in the story kept whining and second guessing themselves throughout the story. Not one of the main characters was likeable. Facts kept changing. Then there was the timeline for Molly's birth. Let me get this straight-Mom and Dad have sex at a graduation party (assumption-it is May or June). Child is born the next June-how is this possible? There is a celebrity who finds out after the fact that he has a "love child" and this is no big deal to anyone? The paparazzi swarm when they go grocery shopping and on a lake, but no other time? Oh yeah, and the one little detail that raised my eyebrows when I read it...how many women include a push-up bra in their running attire? Silly me, I thought that was what sports bras were made for. All in all, it was an "eh" read, when there is nothing else, read this, otherwise, I would advise passing on it.

It's the age old story: girl loves boy from afar, circumstances conspire to bring them together for one night of passion, she conceives and disappears, he pines for her secretly for years, circumstances conspire to bring them together again, he pursues her anew, she rejects him, and he discovers the child he never knew just as they were about to settle their differences.

If you're one of those folks who reads a story and finds yourself yelling at the characters to JUST TALK TO EACH OTHER, then this will be fantastically rage-inducing for you. Frankly, even if you do find it rage-inducing, the story is cute and you might enjoy it regardless. The sullen teenager is written well, the secondary hero is adorable.

I'm not really sure why Max was "mad" or required "taming". With the exception of his odd fatalism, he seemed mostly reasonable. He's funny, considerate, intelligent, and charming. On the other hand, Kari was a far less charming heroine. It's difficult to imagine that she honestly feels justified in her choices and that she's completely unwilling to give him the benefit of a doubt.

I really enjoyed the family interaction. Max is the big brother to four sisters. Two of them are having problems and I'm curious to know what happens to his #3 sister. I'm not sure if she ended up with a happy ending...maybe Ragan has another book planned for Nicole. Everyone in Max's family talks at once and they all have an opinion which made for some good laughs. His mother was an interesting character...she doesn't let just anyone into the family circle. I definitely recommend this book.

Taming Mad Max was very entertaining. It was well written and had realistic, not corny, dialogue which is sometimes hard to find in the romance genre. The author develops Max and Kari's relationship well. From their awkward introduction in the doctor's office to Max's wooing of Kari, it was hard to put the book down. The side storyline of Kari's best friend Lindsay and Max's friend Cole was funny and worked well with the main plot. I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it. However, I am happy to have discovered a new author to read.

It took me a long time to read this book, maybe because I wasn't attaching to the characters, and the story line seemed it was taking a familiar path. One that, with variations, has populated almost every modern day romance story. There was an interesting quirk at the end I hadn't expected, and that helped make me glad I had gotten through it. I noticed another reviewer felt there was too much nutrition information, but the reader also indicated they stopped reading. The nutritional angle is a base for building the story, and is part of it. However, and the book goes on, it is not heavy handed.

There were a couple of things that were non-standard. One was how Max was almost always called by his nickname, Mad Max, and it got to be annoying. I suppose it was his sports moniker, but the over use tended to categorize him as little more than a sports jock, and took away from emotions that should have been the focus. Leave the Mad Max for career related scenes, but he would be more relatable as "Max" when he is relationship building.

Another thing that I noticed was that the clothes the men were wearing were often described in detail, but women's clothes were not. "Today he was dressed like a model for Gucci with his nicely textured, fitted shirt that was probably made of some sort of high quality Egyptian cotton. The shirt, along with his Italian gabardine slacks.............. . His Armani shades hung off the V of his shirt ............ On his wrist he wore an aluminum watch ..........." all to describe one outfit. While women were usually dismissed with "a skirt and a frilly top" or "..... wore a black pencil skirt and white blouse". Just different to have men's clothes described so well, and women usually wearing just simple clothes, often in black & white.
