Taming Romeo book review and GIVEAWAY #bvbtours

Rachelle Ayala seems to master every genre she attempts.  From Christian Fiction to Suspense to this steamy Romance, each of her books that I've read so far has been an edge of your seat page turner.  

I have to admit, this was "spicier" than what I typically read--not a book I'm going to pass on to Brianna!  But if you enjoy romantic tension, you'll like Taming Romeo.

I love the way the author adds a generous helping of Filipino culture to her books.  Even though at times I was frustrated by the lack of communication by the characters, it made me realize that my own way of handling things is not universal.

The book also caused me to ponder what it's like for families of actors.  Do they, too, wonder whether their family member is "playing a role" at times?  

Evie Sanchez is recovering from heartbreak by working at her parents’ Filipino restaurant when in walks Romeo Garcia, the boy she left behind. Only now, he’s a hot movie star surrounded by gorgeous actresses and adoring fans.

Bad boy Romeo Garcia never understood why Evie stood him up at the prom. When he rescues her from a flying coconut in the dumpster, he is determined to dig into her heart for the reason. Their mutual attraction and unresolved feelings ignite in a scintillating night of daring sex, and Romeo shows Evie what she’ll miss the rest of her life if she walks away again.

Evie lands a part as Romeo’s co-star and falls into her role, totally in love. He plays his part, too, with his romantic gestures and skillful lovemaking. But is the fantasy real or revenge? Evie and Romeo are about to discover if their buried feelings will explode in pure delight or utter disaster.

Taming Romeo is a contemporary romance featuring family secrets, delicious food, and hot, steamy loves scenes.

Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+.
