There are five brothers. Each one of them have killer good looks. One is engaged to her best friend. That leaves four to flirt with, four hot men, so why does she only have eyes for the oldest grumpiest one in the bunch. Rachel Reardon has to question her own sanity when she’s enthralled with a man she can hardly stand to speak to. A first-class jerk and sexy as sin.

Adam Kipling can’t believe his bad luck when his soon-to-be sister-in-law’s best friend arrives. She is smoking hot and too damn young for him. He has responsibilities as the oldest sibling and they do not include flirting with young women.

There isn’t enough land on this Colorado ranch to keep them far enough apart. An explosion of some sort is inevitable.

📝My Review📝:

 Taming AdamTaming Adam by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute story.
This is the second book in this series. Just like book one, this was a steady paced book. The author does a great job with word building, scene setting, etc. I had a great picture in my mind of the ranch, mountains; all of it.

I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first, however the ending was not what I was anticipating; it was abrupt and lacked the grand gesture I assumed would be coming. I really expected more and when that ending came, I was disappointed. Other than those last few pages, I enjoyed the book and can’t wait to read the next brother’s story. The characters in these books are endearing and you just can’t help wanting to make sure they have their happy endings.

Rachel is visiting the ranch to help her best friend Alyssa plan her up coming wedding to Beau. In addition, Rachel will be photographing just about everything. Since she will be staying at the ranch for three months, she has plenty of time to take all the photos she wants. And there is also plenty of time to fall for the oldest Kipling brother, Adam. Adam was portrayed as a stick-in-the-mud, by -the-book type of guy. Despite being gorgeous, well-built and his smile could bring any woman to her knees, Adam’s attitude was not attractive. There were several moments where Rachel had to put him in his place. I enjoyed those moments very much.

I don’t want to go into any details because once Adam decides he can’t fight his attraction to Rachel any longer, things progress quickly, get a bit angsty, and then resolve quickly.

Do I recommend this book? I do. I especially recommend it to those that love cowboy romances. Taming Adam was a sweet story with very little in the way of angst or suspense. There were a few issues of suspense but they were resolved without drama. All in all, a cute story.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
