"Book 2 of the Sea Island Wolves series is smoking hot!"
Samantha can't believe her luck when she gets free of one
werewolf, only to be claimed by two more. Samantha knows
from experience that men and relationships are nothing but
trouble, and she has no intention of getting wrapped up in
any more lies from men. Her father left when she was a
child, because he wanted a different life and family.
Bruce, the first werewolf, only wanted her for her money.
Now, it seems that JD and Caleb want her only for her womb.
JD knew the instant that he saw Samantha that she was his
and Caleb's mate. Neither of them will let anything get in
their way of claiming her; not even Samantha. Their mating
musk quickly brings her to submission, but as soon as it
wears off, she is right back to fighting them tooth and
nail. They have their hands full trying to tame her, but
things go from bad to worse when someone places a deadly
curse on her. Now, they are fighting Samantha to become
their mate and some unknown dark forces for her life.
Taming Samantha is the second book in the Sea Island Wolves
series. This second book's plot got off to a much slower
start and was more focused on the explosive attraction and
sex between Samantha, JD and Caleb. The plot was just as
interesting and complex as the first book, but the major
points didn't come into play until later in the book. That
fact was a bit of a letdown, but it gave me plenty of time
to enjoy the characters and their passion.
Samantha's life was turned upside down when her father
walked out on them, leaving her with an alcoholic mother
and two younger siblings. Samantha raised her siblings and
became the unsuspecting heir to her very rich employer.
That good fortune led to more heartbreak when Bruce, her
fiancÚ, revealed that he was a cheater and only wanted her
money. When she meets JD and Caleb, she is convinced that
they also want her money, but soon she learns that they
only want her for her womb, to bear them children. She is
so clueless when it comes to love. Her temper is volatile
in the face of dominance from men, making her relationship
with the two alpha werewolves explosive and entertaining.
JD and Caleb are perfect compliments of one another. They
are identical twins, with less than identical
personalities. JD is the harsh, forceful type; and Caleb is
easier going and more likely to try to flirt, rather than
take what he wants by force. Despite that fact, Samantha
gives Caleb a run for his money and pushes him to lose
control more than once.
Both of these men have very tender hearts and their love
for Samantha is obvious, though not to Samantha. It was
heartwarming to finally see Samantha realize that they love
her just as much as she does them. My only wish is that the
plot, other than JD and Caleb taming Samantha, would have
been revealed a bit earlier on. It was introduced so late
that I do not feel that the full force of the evil
lurking behind the scenes was enough to satisfy me in
exactly everything that was going on. Still, this is a
great book and one that I highly enjoyed reading. I eagerly
await the third book in this series.
