I never thought I'd see the day that I would 1 heart some cracky fluff. Cracky fluff with an androgynous and crossdressing character no less!

This is a sad sad day indeed, so let's make this short.

I've never read anything by Tara Lain before and I find her writing style almost cacophonous. It's choppy with odd little asides randomly thrown in that are usually hokey and sometimes borderline offensive. Bottom line: we didn't suit.

The plot didn't make a whole lot of sense and what did was cheesy and

This is my first book in the Dreamspun Desires series and I have to say it was thoroughly delightful. 😊 What a promising series and what a sweet and fluffy read! Loved it! 😍

Taylor has been out and proud since he turned 18 and left home. Being a son of a billionaire and a very valuable member of the company, he has nothing to worry about in his life. Plus, he’s getting 50 million dollars as inheritance from his late grandfather as soon as he turns 25. But there is a stipulation in the will that

Super sweet. Angst free (oh how I like those).

This was almost exactly like the old Harlequin novels I used to read. We have the arranged marriage trope, the fairytale like story, but with boys!

Taylor needs a wife, today. He found out he only gets his grandfather’s inheritance (50 million dollars!!) if he is married to a woman before he turns 25, which is tomorrow. That could be a bit of a problem since he’s gay. But he needs the money to build shelters for homeless kids (is this guy for real?),

I do believe this might be my fave book in the Dreamspun series so far. I found it cute as hell, and I love a man that dresses up just because he freaking can. This book had secret riches, a surprise dick, and two young dudes just falling in love. It was adorable!!

Taylor Fitzgerald is on the cusp of his 25th birthday and looking forward to it because he will inherit 50 million that his grandfather left him. What he didn’t expect was that his inheritance came with a little extr
3 Stars

This story was all things fun and frivolous, with a premise squarely located two clicks north of reality, floating around up there on an angst-free cloud of cheesy romance and fluffy goodness. I’m certainly not complaining!

The marriage of convenience trope was explored in a fresh and entertaining way here, with MC Taylor Fitzgerald suddenly realising that in order to receive his late Grandfather’s inheritance (of fifty-fricken-million) he must marry a woman before his twenty-fifth birthd

Ooooooo!! This was SUCH a sweet story. Even though, as Taylor said, the story was more conducive to be featured in a Hollywood movie, the exact same reason charmed me soooo much! I love, loove, lurved both Taylor and Ally!!<3

I'm definitely re-reading this fun-filled, saucy book sometime soon!!!

I loved this one. I thought Taylor and Ally were so sweet together. I love these type of stories, where they have to get married for some reason. I love this series from Dreamspinner.

Ok, I’m the first one to admit that the blurb does suggest that you may have to stretch your imagination a bit to find it believable, but we are talking Tara Lain here and trust me on this one, she used those magic fingers of hers to write a tailor made storyline for every m/m romance reader, I really liked it.

It was light and sexy fun. The secondary characters were all amazing in their own unique ways, adding substance and credibility to the storyline.

Another fabulous installment from the Dreamspun Desires series, and my first foray into the writings of Tara Lain.

On the day before his 25th birthday, Taylor Fitzgerald overhears his father during a phone call and figures out that his grandfather's will has a little clause that could cost him $50 million. Shocked and in disbelief, Taylor hops on a plane to Las Vegas to tie the required knot just in time.

Except the escort he hired to marry him is delayed, and Taylor is desperate. Enter the maid f
I'm in Tara Lain's vibes.
I'm enjoying this one more than I expected. Funny how author's can 'read' what's on your mind and you don't even know each other in real life.
I had this story in my head for a while, but, you know, I can't write (poor me).
So, when I read this, I really enjoyed the story. It was funny, fluffy and cheesy, with a little pinch at the end of the book (I've anticipated this from Tara, she's a ending torturer all the time).

This was a short quick read that I liked. When Taylor Fitzgerald over hears his father talking about a clause in his grandfather's will that he has to be married to a woman in order to get his 50 million dollars he rushes to Las Vegas to get married before his 25th birthday. While there his plans fall through when he hears the maid singing he meets her and thinks that she is pretty but he can't figure out why he is so attracted to her.

I am not sure how long it has been since I have read such a sweet romance. Tara Lain’s latest novel, Taylor Maid, is one of the stories offered in the new Dreamspinner Desires line. While there may have been a few plot glitches here and there, one cannot deny that the combination of Ally and Taylor was romance gold and Tara Lain certainly knows how to deliver.

The undeniable chemistry between Ally and Taylor made this novel shine. Their moments together were sweet an

This book is a LONG description of what beautiful, perfect and hot Ally is.

I liked this story; it wasn't great but it was nice. I was more intrigued with how Taylor and Ally would pull off their farce than the couple themselves. I did like that Taylor was so proud to be gay and I liked his "straight for you" and "bi for you" play on words.

I never felt vested in this couple and the sex didn't do anything for me but the story was pleasant enough and it was a quick read.

Fresh m/m twist on an old trope. Fun and light read, although everything comes together just a little too easily.

This kind of shit really pisses me off! Authors, please, when you think about putting a character from another country in your books, do some research. Do not just throw the name of the said country on google e put whatever appears in your story. You see, I'm a brazilian girl. And I'm really sad to see this is a Tara Lain's book. Because i like her books a lot.
First of all there is the whole portuguese/spanish confusion, Macias is not a Brazilian name, nor Carlo. Alessandro is, I'll give you tha

Whilst this story doesn't always make sense it was still a bit of light escapism that I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved the 'queen' aspect which wasn't over the top. The MCs are adorable together and we of course get our mandatory HEA.
I am in love with the Dreamspun Desires series. Seriously, each book I read from it tickles and tantalizes me in the best way and I simply swoon over the stories.

Taylor Maid was totes adorbs. As the blurb implies, Taylor is set to inherit a cool 50 million from his late grandfather on his twenty-fifth birthday but upon overhearing his father on the phone, he checks the fine print on the will and sees that he must have a love match marriage… to a woman… by his 25th birthday to get the money.

Taylor is your stereotypical rich gay boy - his life is about having fun, being free, and enjoying the delectable men surrounding him. Unfortunately, his failure to read his grandfather’s will and his own father’s scheming have left him with less than 24 hours to get married or forfeit said inheritance. One caveat - it must be a love match.

Okay – put on your “suspend your disbelief glasses”- because this story is absolutely wonderful if absolutely unbelievable ☺

Taylor Maid is a very cute story, marrying the maid to inherit money. But boy did Taylor get a surprise! The characters in this book were perfectly described for this story. Loved the connection that Taylor and Ally had almost immediately upon meeting.

This book was fun and had me chuckling at points. The story wasn't rushed at all nor dragged out, it was just enough to give you a cute read. Both their dad's are a problem throughout the book but Taylor and All

The story is fast told, the blurb already says everything but the way Tara Lain is building her story is so funny and hilarious you are captured from the first page.

Sweet Spring Reading!

Taylor Made is the perfect book for light Springtime reading. It features a fake marriage that isn't so fake, a case of mistaken identity, and drag queens - lots and lots of drag queens! Taylor and Ally are characters you'll really want to root for, and it was so much fun seeing them get their much-deserved Happy Ever After!

I will admit that I almost gave this book a pass. Not only did it sound super cheesy, using these tropes, I could see it being very insulting and...bad. Just bad. Then I checked out the preview, read the excerpt and...well, it still sounded cheesy, but kind of a fun cheesy, so I bought it.

Instead of being as bad as I feared, this book is sweet and silly. Better than that, it is also aware. It's aware you can't use a crossdresser for a laugh anymore and have it be okay. Instead, we have interesti

A lifelong writer of serious non-fiction, Tara had the first novel she ever wrote accepted for publication in 2011. She’s now on book 45 and counting.
