Before reading my passionate and lusty review of this book, I want to warn everyone that I'm not an erotic genre lover or sex addict or both. It was an accident that I liked this book because of its deeper meaning besides having sex with a teacher and with a restless book. I rated it higher than what I expected when I started reading it, every letters of every words of this book delivers a very strong emotion of a girl who needed someone to comfort her.

Sometimes, I ask myself, why do prostitutes sell there sexy body and big tits for money even though they knew that there are still jobs available for them. Of course, there are at least thousands of reasons behind this mysterious question of my curious mind, and this book reminds me of one out of thousand reasons that we can formulate.

I lived nearby McArthur Highway, the one with uncountable number of bars trying to seduce singles, foreigners or maybe married men wanting to have a dirty night or simply they want to enjoy there sex life. Every time I pass over McArthur Highway I always see poster of nude women in there windows or even on there name board at the top of there stalls.

One time, a local television show, Imbestigador investigated one of the bar in McArthur Highway and they found out that there are sex live happened in the bar. I mean the guy and the girl are both having sex in front of the customers and I was like, OMG, what on Earth have they done to themselves! Same comment I gave to this book, in fact this book is better than watching that news.

This book is hotter than any books I've read in my entire life, I may be hypocrite but I want to accept the fact that the book was ok. Some said it was shallow, and I opposed to the fact that I find it meaningful. Some said he likes the book because he liked a girl like Sarah, I opposed to the fact that I find Sarah a bitch and not a typical woman for longer relationship. (Well, it depends to the person.) Taming the Beast is a story of a girl who enjoyed sex in a very young age, she was raped, busted, and played.

Sarah Jane Clarke, a smart, intelligent, literature freak and a 22 year old lady who enjoyed having sex with all the men she met every night. Reader always asked this question every time they read it that what really happened to her that she became a sex addict or a nymphomaniac? It was well explained on the first part of the book, unfortunately there is a specific event in her life that changed her entire life and it was stated in the near end part of the book. When she was 14 years old, she had a crush on her English teacher and tutor, Daniel Carr, who teaches her to ejaculate, anal sex and many more that makes her bitchy in the entire story.

One thing that really stroke my mind is that, a teacher should be someone to protect his or her student but Mr. Carr is a person who become influential in a negative way. He have sex with a minor and slaved her, she rented prostitutes and etc, that he don't deserves the criteria of becoming a teacher. In the positive way, this makes the story better, or let me say tackled deeply the life of Sarah in the later part of the novel and the story of minors who become victim of sex. For me there are only three roads for those girls or guys, they become sex addict, trauma or moving on. Unfortunately Sarah takes the road of a nymphomaniac.

Hypersexuality, or excessive sexual drive, are medical terms for a desire to engage in sexual activities at a level that is considered abnormally high in relation to normal development or culture and at a level that causes distress or serious problems for the person affected or to persons associated with them. It is considered to be a psychological disorder characterized by a hyperactive sex desire and an obsession with sex, and lowered sexual inhibitions. Hypersexuality in women has historically been known as nymphomania or furor uterinus, while in men, the disorder has been known as satyriasis. - Wikipedia

After months of having a relationship with Mr. Carr, the only person who knows her secret was her best friend, Jamie Wilkes. He had this sensitive feelings to Sarah, he likes her but at the same time hate her. When Mr. Carr leave the school, Sarah become desperate to look for another guy to have sex, and she search and search. Until she find someone to have sex and it was his best friend and his best friend's friend, Mike. Both are married and having a wonderful time with Sarah. Not a typical book for Filipinos and I'm sure some understands me.

What really makes me feel down, is that Sarah is desperate to have an affair to Carr although Carr leaved her and came back without a single sign. She become a sex toy! Never mind that scene, I can't get my mind out of that chapter. Reading this books was like reading sex-sex-sex-kiss-sex-kiss-sex and end up Sarah's crying and everyone is leaving her. That makes the author forced to end the story short!

This picture makes me laugh! No further comment, I can't help but to laugh all night. Guys why not try this with your partner, LOL!

Rating - Taming the Beast by Emily Maguire, 2 Sweets and two (2) sleepless nights. (I'm sure some saw I rated this book 4 but I decided I gave this one 2. Why? I don't know my instinct shouted number 2 while writing this review. Kidding. Well, there are parts that I find it too nasty for me to accept and I'm a conservative type even though I wrote like Sarah.)

Book #17 for 2011
