But when exes interfere, the unexpected happens and things become complicated, can Wren tame Stellan…and will he allow her to?
I liked Tame Me, but that was really it. I felt like it was okay. There's nothing that really has me jumping up and down, or anything that has me super angry. I feel very...meh. This isn't one of those that will stick with me afterwards or that I'll probably re-read. It's not bad at all, so don't get me wrong there. 

There is a lot of sex and cursing in this one, to the point that at moments I felt like it was just filler. I'm always annoyed when couples in books just randomly have sex during times of stress or fighting, and especially when there are very serious matters at hand. I just feel like it's superfluous and takes away from the story. 

There's one part where Stellan randomly channels his inner Christian Grey, it was so out of the blue and didn't really fit with the rest of story at all. I think that's really the point that it slipped from a four to a three star for me. It was so random and out of place. I mean, sure, he's an alpha-male or whatever, but their relationship wasn't even really defined and it wasn't something he had really displayed in that way before so it just came out of nowhere and seemed so out of place.

Other than that, it was a pretty typical romance. Misunderstandings, lack of communication, drama, and love. It was a decent story with well developed characters.
