Lyla Summers hates men. Okay, maybe hate is a strong word … Lyla intensely dislikes men.
Her father has let her down her whole life. Her brother betrayed her in the worst way possible. And her past relationship experiences with men have been less than great. Lyla is focussing all her energy into her band, Vintage, so when they receive an offer to sign with TMS Records, it seems that things are finally turning around for her. The last thing she wants is a man getting in the way.
Tom Carter loves women. Okay, love might be pushing it … Tom enjoys screwing lots of women.
When tragedy befalls his best friend, Tom finds himself making a promise to the big man upstairs – he’ll change his ways, if he saves the woman his best friend loves. Tom’s prayer is answered. Now he has to change. Which means no sleeping around.
After Vintage’s manager breaks her leg skiing, Tom steps in as tour manager, and Lyla finds herself on tour with the man whore of rock.
Put one perpetually horny Tom and one sex resistant Lyla together, equals a recipe for disaster. Or so you’d think…
But an unexpected friendship is formed. A closeness neither of them expected. Putting one chastity belt and one lamp that is in desperate need of rubbing, to the test.
Will the sex storm that is Tom Carter, finally find himself tamed by the rock chick with a hardened heart, or will he go back to his womanizing ways…?
“But you said…” I frown.
He gives a slow shrug of his shoulders. “Never intended to sleep with her. I was just”—Tom rubs his head thoughtfully and then smirks—“putting on a show.”
He played me.
All that in there—he was just doing it to drive my jealousy to the front.
“You-you’re a…mother-effing mut!” I hiss.
“Yeah, and you’re the sexiest fucking thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Sleep well, Firecracker.”
~FLIRTY AND DIRTY BOOK BLOG’S REVIEW OF TAMING THE STORM BY SAMANTHA TOWLE~
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have been waiting for Tom’s story for what feels like forever. Thank you Samantha Towle for not disappointing. I can tell you that it was most definitely worth the wait 🙂 I have ignored my family completely while reading this one <3
This brilliant storyteller knows how to captivate her audience! I couldn’t get enough of Tom and Lyla. Be warned though…This is the HOTTEST Storm book yet! Tom and Lyla are scorching together and Taming The Storm is guaranteed to leave your E-reader looking for a cigarette. Once this story heats up, it gets hotter and hotter! Light on the angst, but chocked full of sexual tension, you won’t be able to get enough.
What I really enjoyed about Taming The Storm is that it was different from the first two books in the series. Yes, the characters we have come to love were present but not in the same sense that they were in the first book. There are new characters. And I enjoyed getting to know them all. Please Samantha Towle, tell me you are working on a book for Cale, I would love to get to know him better 🙂 YUM! Lyla was a great character, very true to a woman of her age when faced with a MUT as fine as Tom 😉 You’ll understand the term after you read the book. Tom is definitely a bad boy that leaves the ladies clenching! Rub the Lamp…who knew 🙂 But as much as I loved Tom and his story, Jake Weathers still holds my heart.
Taming The Storm was a FAB read. I thoroughly enjoyed the banter between the characters , it was hysterical at times. Samantha Towle also had me in stitches with some of the pet names she came up with. And I loved the references she made to songs…LOVED IT! If you are in the mood for scorching HOT, sexy rock star read that you won’t be able to put down, this book is for you! But if you are looking for a carbon copy of Tru and Jake’s story, you won’t find it here. Nic
