Introducing book 1 in the Bishop Brothers series! A steamy new southern romance series by USA Today Bestselling author duo, Kennedy Fox!
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 contemporary romance with a little southern drama. Each book features a different Bishop brother and can read as a complete standalone.*
From Two Weeks to Forever?
I adore cowboy romance stories, which is a bit odd since I am definitely NOT the roughin’ it kind of girl, but there’s just something about these rough and rowdy gents that check off all of my swoon worthy buttons, and let me tell you, Kennedy Fox’s Bishop brothers have the southern charm, stellar physique, and smooth moves and talk that will melt any woman’s panties and perhaps even her heart!
Taming Him is the youngest Bishop’s sibling story, but even though Alex is the baby of the family, his way with the ladies and his gentlemanly nature is anything but innocent, and while Alex is all about the one-night stand, he’s never met anyone quite like River Lancaster, and the two weeks they spend together makes it impossible for either of them to move on, especially when they reconnect and discover just how strong their feelings are as they try to figure out what their post vacation relationship can possibly be.
I’m all about series that center around a highly entertaining, full of antics family, and readers will find that with the Bishop clan. And while Alex and River are front and center in the storyline of Taming Him, each member of his family plays a role in helping Alex and River work through their fears, their doubts, and their insecurities while also giving readers quite the laughable moments amidst the angst and drama. I would gladly be adopted in to this family because I’m sure there would never be a dull moment.
Readers will definitely swoon over these Bishop brothers and while I did feel like Taming Him ran a bit long in terms of moving the plot forward and I found myself skimming parts that sounded a bit repetitive, I enjoyed Alex and River’s story…its angst…the complications that arise…and the steamy scenes that prove the crazy amount of chemistry between them.
Evan Bishop’s story is up next, and I can’t wait for Kennedy Fox to shed light on his back story and find the perfect heroine for this sexy cowboy!
4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)
Giddy Up Cowboy!!!
First things first... Where can I find my very own Alex Bishop!! He his what every reader dreams of as a book boyfriend. The chemistry between Alex and River was to die for. Every time they were together, my heart would just melt. I absolutely loved River. She was such a beautiful and strong heroine. River’s prologue broke my heart and even after all that she became such a strong person. I can’t wait to get my hand on the next book in the Bishop Brothers series, that’s for sure, but i can’t deny that Alex Bishop is one Hot Cowboy. If you’re looking to save a horse and ride a cowboy then this is the book for you. It definitely was for me... Giddy Up!!
I received an Advanced Readers Copy for an honest review.
A wild, charming Southern gentleman who’s in need of some taming, but with a huge heart and so much love to give.
A nurturing, passionate woman who’s in need of love and a break from getting cheated and left behind.
An electrifying, earth-shattering chemistry between two strangers and an unforgettable, life-changing getaway in paradise.
Taming Him introduces us to the sexy cowboy brothers of Courtney Bishop who we met in Checkmate Duet #2 (This is Reckless & This is Effortless), but it focuses on the youngest playboy of the bunch—Alex Bishop. This guy had me absolutely melting and eating at the palm of his hand. He’s the perfect, dirty-talking cowboy you sit, staring at the ceiling, daydreaming about or fantasize about at night. One who gets down and filthy and knows how to work for it. Alex may have been a party boy and heartbreaker with a wild streak, but I love that he isn’t afraid to show his vulnerabilities—his soft, sweet side—either. No matter how much ribbing he got for them from his brothers. He just had me swooning all over him since that first moment he met River.
River Lancaster is a devoted pediatric nurse who works her butt off, not because she needs the money, but because she loves what she does that much and it’s her passion to help kids as much as she can. She may not be my top favorite heroine, but I can’t deny how much her selflessness, dedication and strength left me in awe. And after her unfortunate battles with love and relationships, she deserves to be cocooned in the comfort and arms of a man like Alex. Someone she had that instant spark and connection with the moment their eyes landed on each other. Someone who’d care for her and make her his entire world.
I’m keeping this review short and sweet since a major part of the tale is a huge, blaring spoiler and I surely don’t want to ruin the twist and surprise this book has in store for you. Just know that when you dive into this, you better brace yourself and hold onto your panties. Because these Bishop Brothers—this pack of Southern charmers—won’t only give you the ride of your life in their hometown, but they will steal hearts and destroy ovaries like there’s no tomorrow!
If you’re looking for a smooth-sailing, almost angst-free read with drool-worthy cowboys and are willing to be sucked into the Bishop vortex, better pick up Taming Him and start the series with a bang. You’ll have to ride the wave of the swoony, flirty feels this book will give you. Trust me. And I bet when you reach that ending, you’ll already be craving for the next book, Needing Him.
