Abby Walters fell in love with me when she was a child.

In many ways, she still is one. That sweet, sheltered good girl may look like a walking orgasm, but I know she’s innocent.

Too innocent for me, the renowned British playboy.

It’s ironic, isn’t it, that I’m the one spending my career in philanthropy while she toils away as a barista. The heiress to her own fortune, sh

I went into this book already liking everything about it. I like the cover, the blurb is great and grabbed my attention, this authors work has great reviews which I was happy about - it was just all really interesting so when the ARC dropped on my kindle I clicked on it like "I'm making this book my bitch tonight." But the reality was that that didn't happen and as much as I liked a lot about this story before I read it, once I was done I didn't have the same happiness about it.

Tame is a sizzling, sexy, entertaining and exhilarating read.

Tame is about Michael Sinclair and Abigail Walters. The sizzling, sexual tension between them was off the charts. They both want more but is afraid to say it. Michael thinks that he may not be good enough for Abigail and Abigail thinks that she is not good enough for Michael.

Tame…. How can you Tame the playboy that is Michael Sinclair. I loved this HOT man. He is protective, possessive, philanthropic, caring, sensitive, admired, lust

Tame by Colet Abedi is an intense, passionate, obsessive romance read that has a slightly taboo feel to it. Tame is a read that is packed full of sexual tension and trust me, you will pick up immediately on that tension. It leaps from the page from pretty much the get-go. Tame is Michael and Abby’s story. Abby has loved Michael ever since he saved her from her step brother when she was 8 years old; Fast forward, now Abby is 23 and having to make her way on her own after barely breaking free from ...more

Well isn't Michael sweet taking time out of his day to show his woman the ropes, "I’ll be training you myself,” he says as he studies me. “That way you’ll know exactly what I want and how I like it.” I have the distinct feeling we’re not talking about the usual job duties of a PA. “I want you to know how to please me,” he continues, his voice almost husky." Michael is a good man he makes sure hia woman is in good health, “because I’m going to eff you all night long,” he says, running a finger do ...more

Cocktails and Books received this book for free from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect our opinion of the book or the content of our review.I really enjoyed Michael and Abby together.  The fact that she had a huge crush on him as a young girl and had that blossom into something more was magical.  But the story felt like I was missing something and that took away from truly enjoying this couple.

I enjoyed parts of this book, I liked Abby and Michael, and I thought it was going to be interesting to watch their story, and their relationship develop. You feel the connection and their attraction, and the sex is hot.

Unfortunately, the story for me sort of went nowhere. I felt I was watching the same scene over and over, just in different locations. In Costa Rica, they had the same conversations as they did in the office, which

Loved this amazing read. In true Colet Abedi fashion...I was sucked into this story from the very first page. I read it in one sitting. Michael and Abby were a pair for the ages. It was a whirlwind romance and I got swept up in it just like Abby did. Michael did deliciously dirty things to Abby. This is a must read if your a fan of Colet's work!

Tame is an average book. I would have liked it better if we had gotten some of Michael's point of view in the story and not only on the blurb. I wanted to know what he was thinking since he was always acting like one minute he wanted Abby and the next he was pushing her away and he was cold towards her. I don't like this kind of behavior and I wish Abby had a backbone. She should have demanded more for herself and make Michael work for it. She was a pushover. Still, I liked the book and

Holy. Lord. Tame by Colet Abedi is a great book, so full of tension, love and passion. The storyline is brilliantly developed. Everything about this book has the exact amount to make it impossibly perfect.

The story told inside the pages of this book is all-consuming, heart-warming and soulful. It is a raw expression of true romance. The characters felt too real. It was a refreshing read, wo

This was the first time I read one of Colet’s novels, but if you know me at all then you know the white dress shirt on the cover drew me in like a moth to the flame.

Tame is the story of Abby Walters, a woman who met her Prince Charming when she was just eight years old. When sixteen-year-old Michael Sinclair defends Abby from her bully of a step-brother, she is forever haunted by an unrequited love for her knight in shining armor. Years later, when Abby breaks off her engagement from a man she f

Colet Abedi – Tame
(Pure review, no spoilers)
I’ve got mixed feelings with this book. Let’s start with the reasons why I did not give this a five.
The plot is, well, we have all read our fair share of office romances. Naïve girl who does not think she is pretty? Check. Alpha boss slash womanizer? Check. By the end of the book I felt deceived. Deceived because it gave Fifty Shades vibe in the beginning that I was actually waiting for the H to reveal that he is into BDSM because of the numerous times

Tame is a read stuffed to the gills with sexual tension that leaves you sweating. My goodness. I don't think I've read a book that had this much sexual tension before. It practically seeps from the pages. Abby is learning how to be Abby. She's learning how to not be so judgemental on herself. How to quit listening to every word her mom says. Michael shows her how to be herself and be happy in that. Now Michael isn't the greatest. I hated him. I loved him. I loathed him. I adored him. One moment ...more

Strap on those vibrators, girls, because Colet Abedi has another fiery romance for you. 

Abby fell in love with Michael Sinclair (his brother is Clayton from Abedi's Mad Love series) when she was eight, and no man has taken hold of her heart since. Reunited fifteen years later, the two dance around each other, Michael cryptic and seductive and Abby longing and open. 

One thing Colet Abedi's fans expect is a Hot Romance that is anything but tame. Michael and Abby's lust and passion scorch just abou

Fast forward, now Abby is 23 and having to make her way on her own. She was working a job and not doing it well when Michael offered her a job as his PA. He would train her.

Tame was my first book by Colet Abedi and I absolutely love it. Riveting, romantic, and well-written, this story had me hooked from beginning to end and I was able to read it all in one sitting.
This was a slow burn but Colet was able to capture the anticipation between Michael and Abbey. She was able make the reader feel the intense chemistry that they had between them, a chemistry that just sizzled off the pages of the novel.
I loved Michael. Throughout the entire book he was swoon-worthy. Its

I was captivated from the very first page until long after the last page. This story was so much more than I anticipated. Michael Sinclair is incredibly charismatic, sexy and fiercely protective. Abby Walters is beautiful, generous, strong and genuine. I instantly fell for these characters. Witnessing them fall in love is magical; they are powerless to stop the irresistible pull to one another. The heart wants what is wants. Their chemistry is electric and irresistible.

Abby has always tried to do the right thing to get her mother's approval. Even to go as far to get engaged to someone she didn't truly love. She's like an ice princess and doesn't let her down and have fun anymore. Until she breaks free of trying to be something she isn't and really never was.

She's been in love with Michael forever and when he wants to hire her to be his PA, she doesn't really want to. Then again.....they're family right? This is where the steam practically starts rolling off yo

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was a great story, but it was a different type of love story. Michael Sinclair is so freaking SEXXY and HOT!! This is the ultimate dark taboo of cousins (by marriage) or older man/younger woman forbidden love story. Sordid but once you become a part of their lives, the unpleasantness falls away. Although taboo, this was a beautiful love story that was so well done; it held my attention and was entertaining, but also was heartwarming

Tame by Colet Abedi is full of romance and sexual chemistry/tension. It was a book that definitely kept me interested throughout its entirety.

Abby has been in love with Michael Sinclair since they were children when he punched her stepbrother for being cruel to her. He has been in her life off and on, flirting with her, being her first kiss, and ALWAYS protecting her, even if she didn’t know it. However, he has never given her what she wants…his heart. Now, they are adults, and he is

There is nothing tame about this HOT story. Michael and Abby ignite the chapters with their pent-up sexual tension and have you reading faster to get to the end of the book. This is the first book I have read from Colet and I can say it won't be the last as I thoroughly enjoyed her writing.

I love any story with a powerful Alpha male, and Colet has given me the perfect example of power, dominance, and passion with her book, Tame. Michael is rich and handsome but he is also broody, and at times I

I’m not sure that I ever truly got what I thought I was going to get with this book, now maybe that is my own fault for thinking I knew where the story was heading because clearly, I was mistaken but I picked up on a number of insinuations in the book, that pointed me in a direction that when it didn’t materialise left me feeling a little confused.
Whilst the story trod a well-worn path, one that followed a shy, naive woman as she embarked on a relationship with her boss, a man that cer

This I was my first Colet Abedi book.

That cover! Only a sexy man with a drink? I love it. It’s simple yet sexy. On to the the story line. It was there. Sexy millionaire hires girl in need for his PA. It’s a little forbidden for them to be together. Chemistry was very intense between Michael and Abby. Sex off the charts.

Very enjoyable book although there were parts where it seemed a little slow and didn’t go where I was expecting it to. I didn’t love it but I definitely didn’t hate it, which is

I LOVE the mad love series, especially the first one which is one of my favorite book ever.
Unfortunately i didn't feel the same for this book. Something was missing, Michael's character wasn't as interesting and intense as his older brother and the love story between him and abby seemed to be more on the sexual side then really the emotional one. The forbidden aspect wasn't develop enough.
Overall it wasn't a bad read but i was just waiting more from it.

Sometimes it was a little slow, but overall it was a good read. I found myself getting lost in the world that Abedi has created here. I enjoyed that these characters had a lot going on with them, but they were still able to come together. It was wonderful!
