Since I’d royally screwed up my life freshman year, I’d been clear about the dog-to-guy hierarchy in my life. Dogs before dudes, and all that. I mean, guys were great at one thing, and one thing only…helping me control my hormones. But for the important things—like companionship, entertainment, and love—my heart belonged to the hounds.
And sweet baby Jesus, he was a feast for the eyes.
I'm not going to lie, I’d worn my best underwear under this get-up, totally not appropriate for self-defense activity, but perfect for this one. It probably made me look desperate, like I was hoping this would happen, but what can I say? I was.
“Do you want to see where I work?” he asked, suddenly. I tipped my face up to his and watched as his expression turn a little shy. I sensed instantly that this was a big deal. He was inviting me into his life, and that right there, was even more intimate than what just happened in an old basement gym.
His body turned me into a moron.
I planted the longest, dirtiest kiss on the woman I loved. I kissed her as if my life depended on it…because, well, it was starting to feel like it did.
Written from my favorite dual POV, Never Be Tamed had an interesting and unique premise and provided a well-balanced and entertaining read that alternated between amusing, sensual, and angsty. I don’t recall ever reading a story that featured a mean girl as the main character, although, since we get to see what is actually behind the persona and know that Jenna is not all bad without her minions on hand, I guess she’s more of a reforming mean girl… as while she has mellowed and gained insight, she can still throw the snark. I enjoyed Michael and Jenna’s steamy and budding romance, and I especially liked that she was an animal lover and advocate. Fostering and rescuing animals is a cause near and dear to me, so I was predisposed to be her ally. Being unfamiliar with the previous stories in this series was of no consequence as this book could stand-alone, although I find my curiosity has been tripped and feel the pull to know more of the back-story. I always enjoy Clare James’ work and every time I read one of her books it sparks my greed to want everything she ever pens.
I have read countless and I do mean countless books, were the girl falls for the bad guy or falls for their brother’s best friend, where relationships with the guy that has always been on the edge of the family finally gets the girl but this was a new one on me and I loved that…this was the guy falling for his sister’s worst nightmare! I had a sneaky feeling that there may be fireworks!
Jenna may not have been to everyone’s taste but she was who she needed to be, yes she had a past but don’t we all but at least she was now facing up to what she had done and been through and was trying to make things right and that in my book is to be commended. She knew she had fences to mend and that not everyone would see the reason why or even accept that she meant what she said but that was on them at least she was trying.
I liked the fact that Michael understood Jenna, he had his own experiences that gave him an empathy for her and her situation and that made it tougher for the two of them to be apart but being together was far from an easy option.
This is a story of time and tide, of taking what is needed and doing what is required no matter how long it takes to get the result that you are looking for and that meant digging in to win over those that continued to doubt her motivation, then Jenna was the mistress of the shovel! I liked Jenna, I liked her honesty, not only the fact that she was willing to suck up the past and move on but that she was willing to try at least to make amends.
Many more would have just left the debris in their wake!
The story was extra spicy when it needed to be and calming at other points and I found the flow was pitched perfectly. Highly entertaining, with characters that some may find hard to get along with but that I found hard to ignore.
Jenna and Michael are no strangers. They’ve crossed paths before when Jenna brought out her claws with Michael’s sister over a guy. But despite the fact that they should be a no-go when it comes to each other, they both feel the attraction.
The premise of this story is what attracted it to me. I’ve read a lot of sibling’s best friend stories, but I’d never read a sibling’s enemy. So maybe I had high expectations because although I liked both Jenna and Michael, the story just felt a little dull or lacked a wow factor. Perhaps it was a few places that were more tell than show. Most definitely the abrupt ending was a letdown. While there is an epilogue to make up for that a little, I still felt like the premise never fully reached its potential.
I did enjoy the fact that’s there’s no OW drama, and that Jenna and Michael didn’t come across as clichéd stereotypes—they were pleasingly average twenty-somethings. While I haven’t read the previous books in the story, I didn’t have any problem following along. Told via their alternating first person POV, this is an easy read that flows at a steady pace and can be read as a standalone.
