Book Review: Tamed by K.A. Robinson

First let me say Wow!   This is the first book I’ve read of K.A. Robinson’s but it definitely will not be my last.  I did not want to put it down and only did so when I had to go to sleep or work and let me tell you I probably wouldn’t have slept as much as I did if I wasn’t sick. I immediately picked it back up upon waking and when I got home.

There is not a boring moment in this book. It had me smiling, tearing up, and my heart pounding to find out what would happen next.  I loved how K.A. Robinson wrote these two characters.  You are immediately drawn to them and don’t want to leave the bubble that is Amber and Adam’s world.

I was immediately sucked into Amber’s life as a freshman in college.  Life was not easy for Amber and her friends.  I’m going to try not to spoil it too much, but I can’t really say much without the beginning spoiler.  At the beginning of summer, Amber catches her boyfriend having sex with another woman and it breaks her.  She decides that she will never fall for another man again.  She would only have sex with no emotions.

This works for her in the beginning until she meets Adam in the band, Breaking the Hunger.  Throughout their relationship, they have an understanding that there will just sex, no relationship, no dating, and definitely no feelings.

It’s not all roses far from it actually.  These two are both messed up from being hurt and when Adam starts to feel a little bit too much for Amber and doesn’t know how to handle it what does he do?  He pushes her away and breaks her heart.

I think Amber and Adam are perfect for each other and I couldn’t help falling in love with them.  I loved reading how their relationship progressed. It may sound angsty (which I don’t like), but it really isn’t.

The only problem I had with this was it ended too quickly. I wanted more of their story.  I need more and may after to take after begging K.A. Robinson for a novella or something.  You will notice from my reviews that I’m normally unhappy with how short an epilogue is at the end of most books, but we didn’t even get an epilogue with this or at least I didn’t feel like we did since throughout the whole book time jumps from a couple of months here to a year there.

I highly recommend this book.  I can’t wait to read the rest of this series and read how the other characters relationships evolved.
