*Each Bishop Brothers novel is an interconnected standalone*
4 Dirty Cowboy CROWNS
Well, well, well, the first Bishop brother certainly lived up to the expectations I had for him. I swear he could charm the pants off of anyone with that southern accent. Every single time he said darlin’ or sweetheart or hit River with the perfect line, I just wanted to crawl inside the screen and cuddle up to him.
Alex Bishop is the perfect blend of southern gentleman and dirty cowboy. He is guaranteed to have readers swooning with this confidence and gentlemanly nature. His charisma draws you in and his fun-loving nature makes you want to stay. Plus, like all the other Kennedy Fox heroes, this man is the perfect amount of dominant in the bedroom, and his skills only make him that much more delectable. He is the total package, and he rivals their other male characters for my favorite KF hero.
I adore River’s personality. She has the right balance of snark and sweet. Although she sees herself as being stolid, readers don’t really see that. A majority of the novel is spent with her best friend, and the rest of the novel is spent with Alex, who is able to pull emotions out of her. When she is with him, she is adventurous and fun-loving. There are moments when doubts creep in for her as result of past experiences, but her relationship with other characters in the novel help to see her through. Her reward is finding the group of people she can call family.
In typical Kennedy Fox fashion, the chemistry between their hero and heroine is off the charts. Their time on vacation is filled with some of the hottest scenes (I seriously want to know if the water scene can actually happen, because WOW), and they also had insane banter, which makes them so much fun to read about. What is missing for me was the signature Kennedy Fox angst/suspense. There are so many opportunities for it, but these conflicts are quickly introduced and resolved. I wanted them to be bigger and to test the strength of the relationship between Alex and River. The story is still fun and incredibly entertaining with the antics of the Bishop brothers and the electricity that always seems to hum when Alex and River are together, and the resolution is the happily-ever-after that Kennedy Fox always delivers.
Taming Him is another great start to the new standalone series, The Bishop Brothers. Kennedy Fox once again delivers characters are lovely, a relationship that is scorching, and the plot entertains readers. It definitely makes me crave more time with the Bishop family in Texas.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
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 complete standalone contemporary romance with a little southern drama**
