*[Blog Tour Review & Tour Wide Giveaway] Taming Johnny by Kaylie Newell

Taming Johnny
He's got the temperament of a lion, and she's just the one to tame him.

Police records clerk Emma Beaumont has always played it safe, never taking many risks. Quiet, shy, and a little overweight, she's convinced herself that she's comfortable with the way her life is. That is until she lays eyes on incredibly sexy Lieutenant Johnny Street. But she's never met anyone with such a terrible attitude. He's a jerk. Everyone thinks so.

Little by little, Emma is forced to uncover a stronger, spunkier part of herself, one that isn't afraid to stand up to him. As she gets to know him, she starts seeing glimpses of a very different man. A man who has known great heartache, and as it turns out, has good reason for embracing such bitterness. Behind his sharp tongue and harsh demeanor, lies a young man who's desperately afraid of losing what's left of himself.

As Emma's intense desire for Johnny turns to love, she will have to ask herself how far she'll go to chip away at his frosty heart. And at what cost.

Content Warning: contains sensual sex and strong language.

Taming Johnny was another one of those books that I wasn't sure I would like but was really happy that I did like it. I've never been much of a contemporary romance fan but this summer the genre is turning out to be one that is getting me out of my many reading slumps.
Johnny and Emma had a great chemistry and I really like the fact that while the book was only 119 pages long the way Kaylie Newell wrote Taming Johnny made the story of how they got together seem longer than it was.
I have to admit thought that for me Emma was my favourite character. She was just so sweet and likable but feisty at the same time and I admired the fact that she didn't let Johnny get the best of her. I wasn't that big of a fan of Johnny even in the ended but I did like the characters as a couple. Johnny was just too much of an ass for me to deal with but I did understand where his anger was coming from and why he was so hesitant about getting involved with another woman again but sometimes he could be a little to cruel for me to deal with.
I loved the way their story was told though and it had be laughing on and off and it was an awesome afternoon escape for me when I read it. Even though Emma and Johnny didn't seem like they would make it and get together I'm so glad that they did because despite all their differences they work amazingly well together.
I would recommend Taming Johnny to fans of contemporary romances with a police officer as the hero and a great story. The writing was impressive and I'll be on the look out for Kaylie Newells writing in the future.
