GoodReads Synopsis:
Ryan West learned at an early age that forever is never promised. Deciding to live each moment to the fullest, Ryan spends his days as a personal trainer to the rich and famous and his nights in the arms of a vast array of women. As a playboy, his motto is to work hard but play even harder. When his best friend introduces him to his attractive and soon to be sister in law, Ryan doesn’t think twice about throwing caution to the wind and bedding the woman that should be off limits. The sparks that ignite between them are undeniable and he struggles to push her memory from his mind.
Knowing happily ever after only happens in fairytales, Layla Barringer has lived her life with a wild streak of her own. Moving to Los Angeles to be closer to her sister, her rebellion is put to the test during a chance encounter with Ryan. Knowing about his revolving door of women, she decides to enjoy one night with no strings attached.

When personal tragedy strikes, they are left with only two options. Aware of their growing attraction to each other, will they work together and face adversity head on or will fear and heartbreak send them running in opposite directions?

Okay, first off let me say that I really wish I had read the first book in the series before I read this one. It isn't an absolute must but all of the characters are obviously introduced in Taming The Bachelor. So with that out of the way...

This book started off with a bang.  It literally jumped right into the story without warning.  It took me a moment to catch up but once I did, I was quickly pulled in.

I really enjoyed the characters and have to admit that the story took a couple twists and didn't turn out like I thought it was going to, especialy after reading some of the reveiws. The book didn't quite bring me to tears but it did occasionally pull on my heartstrings a little.

Overall, I really enjoyed Taming The Playboy and I would gladly read the other books in the series.

Rating: 3 Stars.
Character: Ryan.
