Taming the Bachelor ~ By M.J.Carnal

Reviewed By Rachel

The book had me at the cover and yes I’ve stalked him for you, his name is Alex Turner or Mark Moretti in the book. You would have thought by now I would have had enough about reading about naughty hot bad boys but NO! I mean look at this man! lol

Mark Moretti is a ex-marine, bad boy bachelor with a fabulous set of hottie male friends, they all have a very strong friendship and you see this throughout the book. Mark lives his life like he wants and it includes sleeping with anyone, he said he will never change…….. But everything did change, after a brief encounter at a supermarket with the shy and beautiful Sophie Barringer who’s turns out the Maid of Honor at his sister’s wedding.

The story flowed but was a bit of a slow starter but lots of teasing and tension and abundant in sex scenes. I did have huge issues with Sophie’s Sister and this is a bit of a spoiler sorry , but I could do a huge rant on this part of the book but would give away to much! I hated the whole behind Sophie’s back thing and then getting ring and then she just invites herself to live with them! I mean really like that would ever happen! That being said I did enjoy the book and I loved getting to know the characters.

Taming the playboy ~By M.J.Carnal

Reviewed by Rachel

For me Ryan and Layla’s story way surpassed the first book, I fell for Ryan big time! (and not just because he was a tattooed hottie)

Ryan’s back story was so sad and so well written that I was totally living in the book, I laughed with them , shouted at them and even cried with them and I cried a lot which I don’t do often over books! Loved how Ryan and Layla tried so hard to just keep it a casual thing yet they were both desperate for each other and falling quickly into love. I really warmed to Layla in this book she comes across much better in taming the playboy than the first book where I actually wanted to slap her! But I grew to really like her character was nice to have a a female main character that wasn’t a soppy thing, Layla was fiery and feisty and covered in tattoos and completely adored Ryan. I Don’t want to give to much away but the whole friends bond and their support for each other was awesome, Ryan is a really easy character to fall for and when he made his discussion to stop trying, well I was a broken mess!

The book had lots going on but was easy to keep up with all the events. Liked how Mark and Sophie’s story carries on in this book hoping Ryan and Layla’s will also continue in the next book, Caleb’s book, hoping Kevin will still be playing a part too.

These books are a must read. x


I am Sooooo looking forward to Caleb’s story!

Out in November 2013
