Too Tough To Tame, the second book in this series by WS Long, is a fun follow up to Starting His Engine.

Currently, the boys are engaged, agreeing on a simple wedding, with a somewhat soon date. Unfortunately, it's not smooth sailing for them, as others have a lot of opinions about their wedding, causing some strife between the couple.

They also have to deal with Sebastian's aggressive ex-fiancée, who he's suddenly working with.

They are plagued with doubts, jealousy, and career choices that are at

It is a sadly realistic fact that some areas of life do not embrace diversity and in fact are intolerant of many groups of people. One such are is racing and when you are an openly gay racer, this definitely impacts your career. Caleb is the face of his family’s racing business but he only races the secondary events because of conservative ideas. He wants to race and it’s so unfair that he’s not able to. Add in his upcoming wedding to his love, Sebastian, which is adding some stress to their ...more

Too Tough to Tame is the sequel to W.S. Long’s Starting His Engine. Unlike the first book, Too Tough To Tame does not have the excitement of the racetrack or the same intricate examination of the Youngblood family relationships. For these reasons, I found Too Tough to Tame a less enjoyable read, though I did like Long’s further exploration of Caleb and Sebastian’s romance, which is established but not without issues.

From the background knowledge about the two

The short story Too tough to Tame by W. S. Long is a great sequel to the first book Starting His Engine. I love the characters in these two books. The main two characters are Caleb Youngblood the youngest son of a NASCAR family & Sabastian Rush who is a cameraman at a news station and now Caleb's fiancé. This book centers on the issue of how unpopular it is to be a gay race driver in NASCAR and the hopes that that may change sometime in the near future. Of course there's a great storyline to ...more

This is the second book in the series of three. Caleb and Sebastian are engaged and happy together; then Caleb finds out things about Sebastian's past that cause him to doubt his lover. Meanwhile, Caleb must also deal with distressing news on the racing front. I was a bit annoyed with Caleb's sister this time, as I found her pushy and dismissive of Caleb's opinions.
Even when they have issues and aggravating outside influences, these two remain devoted to each other. I'm enjoying their story and

A wonderful continuation of Caleb and Sebastian’s story from book 1. They are as cute as ever, engaged, planning their wedding, trying to figure out their future, and bumps along the way that they need to deal with together. I really like how they band together and love how they are so considerate of one another. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

A military brat, who joined the military himself, W.S. Long now practices law during the day, but at night reads and writes male-male romance. When he's not writing, W.S. Long travels and dreams of traveling far off distant lands with his mild-mannered college professor husband.

Everyone should have a little romance in his or her life.
