Review provided by Black Lagoon Reviews:

Untamable by Becca Dale was something of a surprise. I usually don't go in for contemporary romance, little lone romances based around cowboys but, this novel truly captivated me. The world building and characterization was spot on, creating characters that were complex and seemed to leap to life from the very pages. The atmosphere was vividly created and while this story was short, and I do mean short, that didn't prevent it from being an emotional roller

Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews
With this sexy “bad-boy, cowboy” as our main character (Thor, AKA Thunder as he is known in the arena) Untamable only makes the attraction all the more sweeter! Becca Dale does an excellent job of compounding a whole lot of “spice and sizzle” into a short story.

Who doesn't love a stetson wearing, wounded hero who is determined to show everyone he is still champion? Apparently long-time sweetheart Lily still does, even if she has been away in Chicago for over eight years nursing her broken heart

Lily is back from Chicago to visit her best friend Mara. They've planned to visit the old haunts, spend some time with Mara's parents. Just as long as they avoid Mara's brother, and Lily's former boyfriend, Thor. But Lily isn't even in town a day before they cross paths, and it's like a knife in the chest. Years ago, when Thor had his accident, he forced Lily out of his hospital room, out of the hospital, and out of his life. She took the hint and left, but even now, she still feels connected to ...more

My Review:
UNTAMABLE is a short novella that packs a pretty big romantic punch. One of my favorite type of romantic plots is that of the couple that breaks up, then finds their way back together after both mature a little, and perhaps figure out what they want out of the relationship. This is that type of book. Becca Dale starts the story off with the two main characters, Lily and Thor sharing space again after a disastrous break-up where misunderstanding and

You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the cowboy she left behind out of the girl’s heart.

A misunderstanding and deliberate mislead broke two young lovers apart. Now all Lily wants is to forget the cowboy who broke her heart and all Thor wants is to forget the fiery redhead who left him when he needed her most.

Tough cowboys, rejected love, childhood friends, steamy sex scenes that sizzle the pages - this little story has it all! A quick little read for that cowboy fix!

Lily Swanson once thought herself in love with Thor Hanson, bronc rider extraordinaire! One day after an injury that puts him in the hospital, Thor, better known as Thunder, tells Lily to go away and she does. She takes her broken heart to Chicago and forms a new life for herself.

Now it’s eight years later and Lily is back for a visit to

If you can pull your eyes away from the cover you will find a short, very spicy read by Becca Dale. Lily and Thor have a past. A past that was a good one until Thor had an accident and said something stupid.

Up until it is revealed why Lily ran off on Thor, you could like him. He is exactly how a cowboy should be. He's all manly and a touch bit arrogant. He risks his life to help a child, while endangering his own by riding a horse that nearly crippled him years back.

Death wish? Possibly.

Untamable grabbed my attention by the title alone. Becca Dale really grabbed my attention with this hometown read. I enjoyed how packed this novella was and feeling as if I was there in the family and at the venue watching what was going on.

Poor Lily was dealt a hard blow at a young tender age that jaded her toward men and loving. At that age there was no way to discern ‘go away’ from ‘get the fuck away’ from a prideful hurt male. Thor I wanted to clobber. I love male pride in small doses; he di

Becca has done it for me again with Untameable. Her character building is spot on, the chemistry between hero and heroine sizzling, and I was nearly salivating during the lusty love scenes. All right, salivating isn’t the correct term, but I think you catch my drift here without causing too much offense.

Cowboys are just plain hot, and throw in some dirty lovin’ and you got yourself a story, but Becca throws in her special pizzazz that makes this work unique. Yo

I love how Becca Dale calls herself naughty enough and it's true. This book might be erotica but it is just naughty enough. I thought the plot moved along quickly and that the characters were both smoldering enough to be enjoyable. There was a bit of stuff at the end I was a little more than worried about but because it had an appealing ending I found myself being able to forgive that little thing.

If you're looking for a quick and enjoyable read, then this one is for you.
