After seeing her best friend accept her brother’s collar, Kalinda Doherty realized without a doubt she needed what Nisey had - a Dom who was willing to offer her more than a few nights of hot sex, erotic pain, and sensual submission. Unfortunately that left out the man she wanted. So when the offer of an internship in Los Angeles came up, Kalinda jumped at the chance, ...more

Although this story was the type that I generally enjoy, I have to admit that I didn't particularly like Taming Kalinda. The book had some of the same problems as Nisey's Awakening with abrupt transitions, grammatical errors, and story inconsistencies. The most glaring example is the timeline which is supposedly two years from the prologue, but simply doesn't match up with what happened in NA. This is just pickiness on my part. More frustrating was that during the entire story of NA Josh is ...more

Kalinda has deep feelings for Joshuah, but he encourages, practically makes her leave Chicago for an internship in Los Angeles. She is heartbroken, devasted by Joshuah seemingly turning her away so carelessly. Reeling and feeling lost and out of sorts, she makes her way along to a club one night. She meets Dominic - he is a Dom and he sees Kalinda is in desperate need of guidance and friendship. She blossoms under Dominic's dominance. It calms her mind and her heart and she slowly makes it back ...more

I have to be honest, I would have given this 4/5 stars had there been a good reason Josh let Kalinda go two years prior. The reason given wasn't good enough had you read the first Nisey's Awakening. I couldn't get past how the author literally changed Josh in this book. He was out of character in my opinion. In Nisey's Awakening he would stop at nothing to get Kalinda, but somehow he comes up with a reason to send Kalinda away to gain experience????? ANY good Dom would have made it his mission ...more

This is the second in a two-book series about a woman who truly loves but is fearful that she will disappear if she allows this particular man to come into her life. Just when she begins what she believes is a relationship with him, he sends her packing--believing she needs more exposure to the wider world before she determines that she wants a 24/7 Dom/sub relationship with him. Big Mistake!! She returns as is still wounded, although her present Dom is a caring and delightful New Orleans native ...more

When reading this story I felt as if I was in the book. I wanted to hit Josh and Dominic upside the head several times, but they eventually got their acts together. I love that we still get to hear from Nisey and Caelan from the first book and got a closer look into Jude and Olivia (the next book). I felt as if I went through the emotional rollercoaster with Kalinda. I felt her pain and the rejection she felt. The author definitely drew me in. I will definitely be reading the next book in the ...more

This was a good read. I enjoyed reading how Dominic and Josh went about how they were going to Tame Kalinda. Kalinda can be pretty mouthy and enjoys her punishments.
