Tame Me (Zane Series #1) by J.L. Leslie



Goodreads review


 
 
Wren Davis has always been the responsible one. The caretaker. She’s always put her life on hold for others. When she takes a job as Stellan Zane’s housekeeper, she does it to take care of her sister. Her own life can wait. Only she wasn’t expecting to find him so irresistible…

Stellan Zane is used to getting what he wants, when he wants. No woman gets to him. No woman really knows about him or his past. When he lets his little sister hire him a housekeeper, Wren Davis is not what he was expecting. And she’s his employee. Yet, she’s what he wants…

Unable to fight their attraction, the two embark on a relationship that’s supposed to be uncomplicated. Allowing Wren to have the carefree life she’s never had and Stellan to enjoy the type of relationship he always gets. But when exes interfere, the unexpected happens and things become complicated, can Wren tame Stellan…and will he allow her to?
 


3 “An overabundance in drama” Stars.

This is one of the times where I wish that Goodreads would allow you to give half stars on a rating.

I struggled with this book a lot. So it is surprising that it gets 3.5 stars.

What I liked:

When the characters had interaction and talked with one another.

The sexual chemistry is strong

Wren’s struggles with her sister and what she has been through.

What I got stuck on.

Stellan and his brother Dylan.

Stellan being an absolute douchecanoe to women even if they are skanks.

What I didn’t like.

The extra drama (see spoilers below)

The inner monologue of both characters. It was tough going.

Now maybe this is just me but there were some occasions where I was confused at one moment Wren was eating Fruit Loops and then she was suddenly in the shower.

What I’d like to see.

I like Lennon. And will most likely read her book not too sure about Dylan though.
Not just a HFN with Stellan & Wren.

The overall plot gripped me and I was enjoying it and then it fizzled out.
When the story flowed then it flowed well. The author is talented and personally I think that she could have done a lot more with it.

All in all I would recommend this book but I would be prepared for the drama in the book. Oh and stick with it for the beginning cause that is a bit slow.
