Book Review: Taming Him


Summery from Goodreads:

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.


Taming Him is my first KennedyFox read, and OMG was it incredible!

let’s start by talking about the cowboy himself, Alex Bishop! He’s charming, sweet, and has all the best qualities you’d want in a leading man. I hope you have room on your book boyfriend list, because you will definitely be adding Alex to it when your done reading! River Lancaster is a sweet, and relatable character. Her journey through the book has some great twists, and keeps the reader on their toes!

I love how KennedyFox wrote the book from both Alex and River’s points of view, because we get to see the story through both character’s eyes, which adds a lot of fun to the experience! The story itself is really charming, and had me completely absorbed! The steamy scenes are written really well, and are well placed throughout the book. Since the series will continue with the rest of the brothers that are introduced in Taming Him, it was really fun to read scenes with them and get hints as to what their stories could be about.

Whether you’ve read every book KennedyFox has released, or haven’t read anything by this amazing author duo, I highly recommend Taming Him! It’s the first in their new Bishop Brothers series, and i can’t wait to find out more about the other Bishop boys!

Book Review: Heart of the Fae



Summery from Goodreads:

Beauty and the Beast meets Irish Mythology in this sweeping retelling of the beloved fairytale…. 

Once upon a time…

A plague sweeps across the emerald hills of Uí Néill, leaving a young midwife’s father with months to live. To save her people, Sorcha makes a deal with a dangerous Fae. She must travel across the sea, through merrow and kelpie lands, to find a forgotten king on a crumbling throne.

Born king of the Seelie Fae, Eamonn fought battles unnumbered to uphold honor, duty, and freedom… until his twin brother sank a blade between his shoulders. Crystals grew from the wound, splitting open skin and bone. His people banished him to a cursed isle for his disfigurement, now king of criminals and fools.

With the help of brownies, pixies, and will-o’-the-wisps, Sorcha battles to break through his crystalline shell and persuade him to take back his stolen throne.

This determined beauty could come dangerously close to stealing his beastly heart.


Emma Hamm’s Heart of the Fae takes place in the rolling hills of Ireland, and the island of Hy-Brasil. The descriptions of the landsape are realy breathtaking, and Hamm does an amazing job of transporting the reader to the scene. It was easy to get lost in Hy-Brasil and it’s gorgeous scenery and its inhabitants.

The main character, Sorcha, is a strong-willed and fierce woman. She is determined to solve the mystery of the plague that is destroying her village, which is hard for her to do when the men of her community see her as ‘just a woman’ and not someone that can actually help. She believes in herself and her ability as a healer to continue to fight for an answer. Eamonn is a secretive and evasive banished Fae prince. He tries to keep his distance from Sorcha, the newcomer to his island, by being cold and frightening. Throughout the book though we see a soft and protective side to him that made him a really well-rounded and great leading man. The side characters I found really interesting and enjoyed their personalities. I really hope to see more of them, and learn more about their stories in the sequel!

The story itself I was a big fan of. It starts out as a woman who is hoping to heal her people and turns into a sweeping saga of fae, love, royalty, power, and revenge. I am incredibly excited for the next installment of this series, and highly recommend them!
