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**
Where do i even start with Taming Him by Kennedy Fox. Ok, first this is the first cowboy romance I have read, but I loved it. Seriously, this week has been stressing me out with planning my daughters party- making decorations, buying food to mske, getting games situated, i honestly didn't think i would finish reading in time (& had asked for a couple days extension, just in case) turns out I didn't need it- I devoured this story. Alex Bishop is one of 4 of the Bishop boys- born & raised in Texas. He's a player, but knows how to work his charm & is a gentleman. He s sweet, funny, and has a accent, what's not to love? River works as a pediatric nurse in Wisconsin, loves her job, and was dealing with an asshole who turns out to have been married while sleeping with her. The meet in Key West Flordia. Rivers friend Natalie forced her to go- saying a vacation is just what she needs after her failed relationship. Alex friends Dylan won a trip and brought Alex along. Talk about Meet-Cute, right? So what happens when the vacation is over & they need to get back to the real world? This book was a great book for my first cowboy romance. It was cute, sweet, funny, and had me grinning like a fool. I loved it. And it also brought some feels along. You get plenty of the Bishop Brothers antics along for the ride. And Courtney & Drew are even mentioned too 😉 If you are looking for a cowboy romance, that's filled with southern charm and hot Bishop men, then you NEED to read this book! 5⭐ out of 5⭐
River and Alex. Boy, if you love a bit of Southerm Charm and sexy as sin Cowboys, you will adore this. Alex is one of those men you would love to sweep you off your feet and River os one of those ladies you want to be. I think after reading this, i want to head to the the Keys and find my own Cowboy 😂. This book is really sweet and i enjoyed it, especially the bit of spice chucked in. Good read!
** spoiler alert ** This book was awesome. I’ve always had a thing for cowboys so this book was my perfect read. Ranchers Alex and Dylan head to Key West for a vacation. Best friends River and Natalie (and Nats boyfriend Adam) are at the same luxury resort. River and Alex decide to have a holiday fling, checking off ticks on the sex bucket list as they go 😂 A few months later and Alex still can’t get River off his mind. When River turns up at the family ranch in Texas, pregnant with his baby, he couldn’t be happier! River makes plans to move to Texas........ My favourite character in this was actually Natalie! I found myself laughing at so many of her comments. Things such as, “Are you having some Texas sausage for breakfast?”. She was a hoot! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, it’s a great start to this series.
Who would have thought a much needed vacation to Key West would be the catalyst that changes a person's life in a direction they never thought would happen. Add to the bunch hot cowboys and lots of teasing and you have the makings of a really fun read. This is the introduction to the Bishops and my, oh my, I cant wait to read the next brother's story.
This book is one of my most anticipated books this year and it definitely didnt disappoint. I fell in love with Alex immediately. His southern manners wangled their way around my heart! This book was full of steam and romance, exactly what I look for in my books. Another fantastic 5 star read from Kennedy Fox <3
I'm not one that is big on the Cowboy Romance, but after reading this I will definitely be reading more from this series. Alex was perfect. In fact I want myself an Alex in my life. His mama raised him right. And his brothers are looking to be great characters for future books in this series. River is a character that has her insecurities when it comes to life and love. And you find yourself pulling for her to see that what she has been missing is a southern gentleman. The chemistry between Alex and River is perfect. But, I don't expect anything less from the duo that is Kennedy Fox.
This was a great start to introducing the Bishop brothers. Alex and River have an instant attraction that's pretty hot, when they meet on their jollies. Fast forward three months and River has a surprise for a pining Alex. I don't think it took much taming though, Alex was smitten from start. I can't wait for more of the Bishop brothers!
There are a few categories that Taming Him by Kennedy Fox could fit into IMO. Cowboy romance, Insta romance, second chance I could probably go on and on. What this definitely is though is a sweet heart melting read that has a hero that I would describe as a man that is the very definition of southern gentleman. Alex and River have an instant connection and for a few weeks their chemistry is hot. Throwing caution to the wind they just enjoy each other's company. There are sweet moments, and of course there are the I need you right now moments that turn up the heat. But what happens when they part ways??? Well you will have to read to find out but I can tell you that things get a little intense and your heart may just well explode. You will definitely swoon over Alex and you will feel for River. This is just the start of the Bishop Brother series and I have a feeling that we will get something different with every single book and I can't wait to read the next one because of course Kennedy Fox leaves you wanting more every single time. If you love a feel good book then this is a definite recommend from me.
