Review: Taming Cross by Ella James
For twenty-three years, Cross Carlson was a playboy. You know the type. Tall, dark, and wealthy. Blue-eyed. Charming. He seemed to have it all so easy. But Cross was harboring a terrible secret – one that helped ruin the life of an innocent girl and almost ended his own.
Finally out of the hospital, Cross is flailing, scarred in both body and mind and stifled by the weight of the secret he still keeps. The only way to absolution lies in a Mexican convent, and going there could cost him everything.
If there’s anyone who knows what it’s like to screw up big time, it’s Meredith Kinsey. Just a few years ago, Merri was an ordinary girl with a job at her college newspaper and white picket fence kind of dreams. Now she’s holed up in a Mexican convent, hiding from a drug lord who thinks he owns her.
What happens when the only way out of hell is with the son of the man who put you there? They say love conquers all, but does it really?
NOTE: Cross and Merri’s story is a Love Inc. Book. It features some characters from Selling Scarlett, but it follows a completely different story line can be read as a stand-alone.
All I can say is that I love Ella James, any book this author publishes I absolutely adore, and Taming Cross is not an exception! I loved Selling Scarlett and I didn’t think that she would be able to top it but she most certainly did! This book had me hanging on the edge of a cliff the entire time. I didn’t want to and couldn’t put it down. This was an amazing story!!!
I love Cross, broken sexy Cross. Cross is just so damn relate-able and I want to hug him and tell him everything will be okay. Then there is Merri, I love her. She is a hot mess, but I still love her. I loved the complexity of the novel. I was feeling bad for Cross, then bullets were flying and I didn’t know who was dead and who was alive, then tension and risky business, then sweet love. Then out of no where Ella throws a twist at me. My jaw was on the floor I am yelling at my kindle and waiting to see the dust settle and what the heck happened! This book was good, so freakin’ good! I can’t wait for Marchant and Suri to get books! Love me some Love Inc.
…I can feel myself blushing. There should be another word for this. One that more resembles burning.
