Review- Too Wild to Tame by Tessa Bailey


Sometimes you just can't resist playing with fire . . . 

By day, Aaron Clarkson suits up, shakes hands, and acts the perfect gentleman. But at night, behind bedroom doors, the tie comes off and the real Aaron comes out to play. Mixing business with pleasure got him fired, so Aaron knows that if he wants to work for the country's most powerful senator, he'll have to keep his eye on the prize. That's easier said than done when he meets the senator's daughter, who's wild, gorgeous, and 100 percent trouble.

Grace Pendleton is the black sheep of her conservative family. Yet while Aaron's presence reminds her of a past she'd rather forget, something in his eyes keeps drawing her in. Maybe it's the way his voice turns her molten. Or maybe it's because deep down inside, the ultra-smooth, polished Aaron Clarkson might be more than even Grace can handle . . .

Too Wild to Tame is the second book in Tessa Bailey's Romancing the Clarksons series. We'd met all the four siblings which make up the Clarksons in the first book and each book follows the story of one of the siblings while they are on a wild road trip as their mother's last wish. Before starting Too Wild to Tame I was plenty curious to see how Aaron's book would be. I wondered how his heroine would be. I have to say Too Wild to Tame was a good read.

So like I said before this is Aaron's story. Aaron has been portrayed as the slimy political guy since the beginning of the series. He is ruthless and cynical and he values his job above all. A job he wants to get back. I actually really ended up liking Aaron. He was cynical and shit but he had a vulnerable side as well. He is also completely smitten by all that is Grace and I loved how protective he was of her. 

Then let's go to Grace. Grace has always been the black sheep of the family. She also happens to be the senator's daughter for whom Aaron is working for. I loved how Grace was an unusual character. A horrible tragedy in her childhood made her want to live in the moment. And she wants all the moments she can get with Aaron. I liked the little bit of whimsy and the optimistic outlook which came with Grace's personality.

Tessa Bailey is an expert at writing forbidden romances and Aaron and Grace's romance is also forbidden in a way. They are complete opposites on paper, both wanting extremely different things from life. But I guess that is what pulls them closer. They actually fulfilled what the other was missing while understanding each other perfectly. 

I also liked seeing Sage. We also get a little glimpse of what may actually be going on in bubby Peggy's head. BUT while all this should have made this book a perfect read for me, it didn't. I don't know what it is but I think I'm at a burn out point with Tessa Bailey books. Her heroes are somewhat sounding the same to me and I really don't like how quickly the characters change their minds right after a steamy scene. So while I am curious about Peggy's story next I will definitely be taking my time to get to it. Too Wild to Tame was an okay read for me.
