It is no surprise that I am Kaylie Newell’s biggest fan. Her writing style is amazing and she has a real gift for pulling you into a story and keeping you there. I have found every single one of her books wonderful. “Taming Johnny” was no different and I am so beyond thrilled that Mrs. Newell considered me when sending out her Arcs. Lt. Johnny Street has been through a lot in his life. He’s lost even more. Because of all this, he has built up a tough as nails exterior to keep everyone at [...]
Thank goodness this was short because I needed to get to sleep and there was no way I was putting it down until I finished reading. Taming Johnny was a well-written story about stifled attraction, emotional distance, and chemistry that wouldn't be denied. I loved that the supposedly meek and mild records clerk, Emma was the strong and tenacious risk taker, at least where Johnny was concerned. She was perceptive, in some respects anyway, and not easily warned off by this tortured hero's aggressiv [...]
3.5 stars!! Ok now that I think about it this story kind of reminded me of off limits by sawyer Bennett (but just a little) I made sure I finished this before I went to sleep, I just HAD too! I really enjoyed it! Full Review to come on smibookclub
Originally posted at eromantix/wordpress/A emotional distant guy, a damaged soul. Gruff, and rude to keep people at a distance. I do tend to gravitate to these sort of hero's. It is just so satisfying to see them morph into a better, happier person. That is exactly what I was expecting when I started to read 'Taming Johnny'. So I wasn't surprised Johnny was a jerk towards Emma. That was par for the course. After a while, I did start to wonder how far an author can take this. When do you expect t [...]
Johnny is the police departments jerk. He doesn't allow anyone to get close to him. He is excellent at his job but his job is a little harder because he knows Emma likes him. He wants nothing to do with her. Emma is shy, has self doubts about her body and really likes Johnny even if she doesn't know why.She finally has enough of his attitude and begins to dish it back to him. She thinks she will finally get over her crush. However the more she banters with Johnny the more she gets to see a diffe [...]
Taming Johnny is a mix of angst, heartbreak, healing, and love. I felt all of these emotions while reading this novella which makes it great summer poolside read!Johnny Street is a tough, grumpy, brash JERK!!! He is a police Lieutenant and rubs everyone the wrong way. He is hated by all, feared by everyone, and no one really knows him as a person. He never smiles, makes small talk, or even tries to be nice. He likes it that way. He has had his share of heartache and prefers to keep other people [...]
3 1/2 stars****I recieved an ARC copy of this for my honest review, I reviewed this book on content only.**** "He's got the temperament of a lion, and she's just the one to tame him."Lieutenant Johnny Street; the office grump, always harsh and wearing a continuous scowl. He's been hurt, put through more than his fair share of heartbreak and received enough hard blows to keep anyone down. But no one see's that side of him, no one knows why he is the way he is and that's just the way he likes it. [...]
Who doesn’t love a tortured hero? And Johnny does a lot more than just tick the boxes! I found this story both sexy and sweet, and a page turner right to the end. Emma is a relatable character right from the beginning, the kind of girl who’s self-conscious and a little shy, but underneath it all she has a huge well of strength and determination.To begin with Johnny doesn’t want to get involved with Emma, but has always held a bit of a flame for her. The chemistry between them is sizzling, [...]
This is my first read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the concept of a hard ass cop who is ex-military and all sinewy muscle. I also loved the heroine, Emma. She is a curvy girl who’s a little self-conscious and totally head over heels for the grumpy cop.Little does Emma know, Johnny has been panting for her ever since she stepped foot in his police department over a year ago. You wouldn’t know it by the way he acts, but his tough exterior hides a painful past that Joh [...]
Ok. So I'm a big fan. And yes, she's done it again. An author I can consistently count on to deliver a heartwarming, sizzling, character driven romance. Johnny is a tortured alpha male with secrets and layers and I so routed for Emma, our female protagonist to stick it out and uncover them all. And being from Texas I also so appreciated the authenticity of the setting details. I always FEEL when I read a Newell book. (ex) his face took on an expression of sudden and intense pain. And then it was [...]
Aww I love Johnny! He's a tortured hero with a past that shapes his work life and makes his love life non existant. He doesn't do emotion. But he does angry and annoyed really well. Yet why did I want to wrap my arms around him and give this delicious yet bad-tempered grump a muscle squeezing hug?Because my heart started to break for him from page one. This guy needs a hug and lots of love. And Emma his police records clerk is just the woman to do it. At first you think Emma is too timid to put [...]
It's 3am and I've just finished reading this moving story. I did not want to stop reading until I had finished.Johnny is damaged and Emma sweet and self-conscious in a relatable way.Emma has been working with Johnny for the last year and she has had a crush on him for that long. Turns out that Johnny has been fighting his attraction to her from the moment they were introduced. Despite his cold, hot, cold attitude and behaviour, Emma tolerates him pretty well. Johnny's younger, caring cousin, Jak [...]
Emma Beaumont has been crushing on her boss for a year, no one understands her infatuation with the surly Lieutenant Johnny Street. Johnny is a hard man, he is curt, barks his orders, and unapproachable but Emma believes that there is more to him than his steely edge. When a compliment gives Emma hope, she decides to pursue Johnny whether he wants it or not, but Johnny is keeping his feelings close to his heart and may end up losing the best thing in his life, Emma.Full review on Single Titlessi [...]
Bland/lukewarmThis book was just ok for me. Predictable story, ok characterseverything was just ok. I am not a big fan of "overweight" heroines because usually they have very low self esteem but the real turn off for me in this story is that the hero was shortt only were several references made about the hero's height (same height as heroine) but others were compared to him and were almost given hotter descriptions than him. For me this just bland/lukewarm. I won't be rereading this in the futur [...]
I really enjoyed this book. It had sweetness, humor, emotion And at times I couldn't help but swear at Johnny because he was such an ass sometimes lol!This is going to be one that I re-read again at some point, because I really did enjoy it.The Emma character was very relatable.
Anyone who knows meows I LURVE me some Tortured Heroes, and Johnny was PERFECT! I don't think I put this one down once. Quick read for a rainy afternoon. Great Plotline, Characters who kept me wanting to read more and more. Full review to come, tour starts next week with Tasty Book Tours
I just love Kaylie Newell. This book did not disappoint. Johnny is such a swoony hero. I can't wait for more from Kaylie.
Would have given it 4 stars, but I got picky on the cop jargon. Otherwise, loved it.
Talk about an amazing love hate relationship with this book. I read it in 2 days and couldn't get enough. A must read and all out wonderful. Great work once again Kaylie!
