From the Inside Flap

"Yes, this is the light hearted romance that we all crave in our lives. Rachelle Ayala beautifully portrayed the dilemma of choosing between two good things. Romeo is delicious, he is not only handsome, but he is also loving, caring, encouraging and pure of heart. I really, really loved him. Evie was a little difficult for me to love. By the end of the novel, I understood her desire to become a doctor, but when life gives you candy, you snatch, and you don't leave it for someone else to take! The novel was perfect and I truly enjoyed it." Five stars! - Reader's Favorite 5-star review

Taming Romeo is a breathtaking story of being pursued and caught by a love so boundless and intense that all we can think of is forever. When a love so pure and right envelopes and permeates itself so thoroughly and gently throughout your heart, it cannot be easily stopped or pushed aside. Throwing aside such a precious gift is unthinkable and beyond cruel. Unfortunately, in life nothing is cut and dry when it comes to love and life. Sometimes we are convinced that love will only serve to hold us back from our dreams when in reality they only help to fuel and enhance your deepest dreams. If only, we could really understand that and not allow others to convince us to settle for leaving our heart on the side of the road. Living life without your heart completely removes the reason for life itself. Who would want to live like that?

Evie is a girl with a dream of becoming a doctor. The only problem is that while her dreams pull her away from home, the boy who has stolen her heart is at home. She is completely torn by this, and ultimately she is convinced that her dreams are more important then what her heart wants. After all she can find love anywhere, right? Her heart tries to tell her that she is wrong, but to prove that she knows best, she finds a love at college that becomes only a shadow of what she desperately longs for. Romeo doesn’t understand why the girl he intended to marry left him standing with his heart in his hands. He thought he knew where she stood, but obviously he’s missing some important piece of information. When she comes home for a short break, he doesn’t intend to waste any time in showing her what all she has missed out on. He wants to ingrain himself so deeply into her heart that she can’t walk away this time.

Wow! I didn't want to put my Kindle down! Talk about a fun and sexy romp. Rachelle Ayala continues to entertain! Taming Romeo is different from her past romantic suspense books, being full on romance, but I loved it!

Evie has a lot of growing to do and a heartache to get over, but that won't stop Romeo from going after what he wants, full throttle. The chemistry between Evie and Romeo sizzles and the heat between them is a force that can't be denied. The author even threw me for a loop at the end with an unexpected twist that was great! Didn't want this one to end and I hope to see more from Evie's family in the future. Can't wait to see what Rachelle comes up with next! I highly recommend picking this up!

Taming Romeo by Rachelle Ayala is a sexy and sultry read that will have you begging for more. Evie is back in town after her long-term boyfriend from medical school leaves her cold and without an explanation. Coming home to work in the family restaurant has kept her busy, but when she finds out that her secret boyfriend from the past, who she left cold without an explanation, is back in town - fireworks erupt!

Hot and saucy sex scenes will keep you wanting more and the development of their relationship will make you smile!

I love that Evie is a character who I can relate to - with funny internal arguments with herself and hilarious choices that lead to embarrassing situations (hello, jumping into a dumpster only to be found by the guy you were hiding from !) Miss Ayala has done it again - kudos!

This is my first book by Rachelle AYALA AND IT WILL BE DEFINITELY NOT THE LAST! The story line is marvelous and thankfully ends happily. I really enjoyed the writing style. It was fun, hilarious and hot, but not dirty. I will really recommend this book . I can't wait to start the second book.

This is a hard one to review. Let me start by explaining what possessed me to purchase this book (just to show that marketing really does work!). It was featured on one of the blogs I subscribe to, and the cover and synopsis encouraged me to download the sample from Amazon. The sample was so intriguing, I purchased the book. Exactly like it was supposed to work...

Overall, it was an enjoyable, quick, easy read with a great start, a heart-thumping climax, and a sweet ending. The hero was unrelentingly adorable. It was fascinating to read about a culture different from my own. It was the stuff in between that caused me to give it a 3 star rating, as opposed to higher.

Partially, this could be due to the fact that I do not make it a habit to read NA. It was just as I feared: overburdened with the same emotional angst, page after page, and I didn't buy it right from the beginning. Within the first couple of chapters I was annoyed with the heroine. "Just get over yourself already," drifted through my head several times. The hero was so endearing that I kept reading because I wanted him to find HIS happily ever after, even if it was with the heroine.

Slight spoiler alert here: the heroine left her first love for a guy she met in college. The new guy breaks up with her and she finds herself back home, facing her first love, which leads to all sorts of emotional and physical angst. I enjoyed the byplay between she and her first love. I particularly liked him. But her angst just didn't work for me. I get that she was broken hearted over her college love breaking up with her. What I didn't get was why she even left the first love in the first place. Maybe, if that had been explained better - or at all, really - I would have enjoyed the book more.

Final consensus? I wouldn't recommend not reading it. Just be prepared to fall in love with the hero and be annoyed by the heroine.
