Taming the Boy Next Door by MJ Carnal with Giveaway & Review

Title: Taming the Boy Next Door (Dickerman/Moretti Novels) 

Author: M.J Carnal

Release Date: November 15, 2013


Caleb Allen was your typical boy next door.  Growing up in a prestigious suburb of Los Angeles, he lived a life most only dreamed about.  As one of the original Moretti men, he caught the eye of countless women with his clean cut good looks and chivalry.  But behind closed doors, he commanded attention, becoming a dominant force that was anything but timid.

After a misunderstanding that jeopardized the wellbeing of the group and a near fatal accident that nearly cost him his best friend, Mark Moretti, Caleb was determined to become the loyal and devoted man he had been in the past.  The minute Dr. Jena Turner stepped from the ICU with news of Mark’s condition, Caleb’s world spun off its axis.  Several chance encounters only deepened his desire to make her his. He longed to prove that the life he preferred was one of pleasure and passion. 

But, Jena Turner has a secret that haunts her.  Hiding from her past, a simple moment in the heat of passion sends her running in fear.  An unlikely confidant can either push her back into Caleb’s arms or give him a taste of his own medicine.  Can Jena step into a lifestyle that reminded her of the darkest day of her past? 

Broken and defeated, Caleb questions everything he knows about love.  Can he prove to Jena that love is worth the risk or will he watch her walk out of his life forever? 

Taming the Boy Next Door is the third novel in the Moretti Novels by MJ Carnal.

My Review: 4 stars
This was just what I needed to read today. It was a good book, with lots of playful moments. It also had more than a few serious moments, but those were overcome. I enjoyed the playfulness of the Moretti men. They had their somber monents, but through it all they were there for each other. Caleb and Jena fell for each other pretty much the first time they saw each other. They had an easy beginning, but one misunderstanding changed everything. They found their way back, but it was difficult and long. I've got to give MJ credit, the epilogue was possibly the most romantic thing I've read. Nothing but love there. I love her characters, how they're so witty, sarcastic, fiesty, and loyal to the core. I'm looking forward to the next book, Taming Casanova - all about our man, Kevin. I could see it coming in this one, and it's going to be awesome.
