I want Hadley Holiday. In fact, I've been obsessed with her for months. But a good girl like her would never be with a scoundrel like me.

My reputation is shot. Asking Hadley to fake a relationship with me to improve my image would be the easy way out, but it could ruin her. No thanks. I've got a better idea, and my plan will work perfectly as long as I can keep my hands to

Untrainable is my very first book by Jamie Schlosser. I had an inkling that I was going to really enjoy this book going in. It’s the exact sort of book I normally go for. But, what I didn’t expect is the way this book grabbed my heart, pretty much right from the start. These characters! They were amazing.

Theodore (Theo-Dog) Legend was used to being the bad boy, the one to attract all the negative attention. It’s just what he did, what he’d always done. One big mistake that involved a lot of alc

Theo Legend, 24, has a tabloid bad rep and a crush on an up-and-coming talent show star.

Hadley Holiday, 22, has found that the limelight on her dog training routine is more career inspiring than accounting, but will she still feel the same way when she sees the destructive side of the paparazzi?

Unlike so many contemporary romances that start out with the heroine down on her luck, here we find the hero down and out. Theo’s practically broke and definitely lonely, but he isn’t broken a

This book is a very sweet romance between Theo and Hadley. He seems to be a bad boy but he is not as bad as it is told in the media news. He has a background story that reveals a sad past with awful parents that has made him self-destructive. Hadley, on the other hand, has amazing parents who are loving and fun. When Theo and Hadley come together, it is the meeting of the opposites.

Hadley is an over- achiever, a perfectionist. She is serious about everything. Theo is bro

Untrainable is a funny and sweet romcom! It's my first book by Jamie Schlosser and I look forward to reading more! Theo and Hadley's story will warm your heart and have you rooting for them to find their HEA. Yes, things start off a bit unconventionally and are fueled more initially by lust, but the instalove is balanced by the connection these two share. Both are kind of lost when we first meet them, but together they help and heal each other. Theo's past was so heartbreaking and explained so m ...more

I always like Jamie Schlossers books. I don’t need to be wary when I pick them up.

They’re light, sweet, endearing, safe and funny.

Theo (24) is a washed up teen reality TV star who has a really bad rep for being this “wild child” partier with news outlets naming him “Theo-Dog”. The reality show starred his family - step dad, half brother and mum, but his wild antics were mostly a cry for help, and love due to neglected parenting. It’s been over a couple years since the shows ended.

Ready set --- head for the potty pads because once again Jamie Schlosser gets the reader unaware and into giggle fits. I first found Jamie's writing in Untamable. If you've not read that book, YOU NEED TO. It's not a necessary to proceed with Untrainable, but more of a moral imperative. Because it's fucking funny.

10+++ FAB, funny & sweet stars!! Theo & Hadley are fast favorites for me! This story is a super entertaining ride from start to finish. I love their banter (steamy time banter is the best, don't ya know??) and they get to spend a holiday together which provides a LOT of LOL moments! The supporting cast is also enjoyable, and I'm hoping Theo's brother gets a book (hint hint dear author). *grin*

This is one of my top recommendations for 2018! Enjoy!! : )

I didn’t mean to stare at it, but it was just *right there*. Out in the open. And alarmingly large. It was like spotting a rare animal in the wild. The thing practically needed its own Australian accented voiceover.

4.5 Stars A beautiful, poignant, heart-wrenching story that brings you characters that will steal your heart.

Theo is trying to come back from ruining his own public reputation. His family was on a reality show years ago and he's still in the public eye. He is constant fodder for the gossip rags and he feeds the best with bad decisions. He's ready for a change. He wants to turn his bad reputation around and he knows just the woman to help him out.

Hadley Holiday is currently America's Sweetheart.

Untrainable is an interesting and rather different story centering on Theo and Hadley!
The genuine feelings behind the characters and the beautiful friendship that develops is rather wonderful!
It took me a little bit to get into the book but I was tearing up part way through and laughing with the characters!
Hadley and her family are an absolute hoot and I felt sad that Theo didn’t have that in his family!
I wondered how things would progress and if there would be a happily ever after!

So good! I loved that this was such a sweet story that was pretty low on angst. The real Theo was as awesome as his parents were terrible. Hadley was adorable and her family was the best! I found me a new author to stalk. Now I need to find the time to read the rest of her books!

I honestly loved Theo more than is probably healthy. I have a weakness for obsessed heroes. They're like crack to me and I seriously can't get enough.

Hadley is adorable and a total sweetie pie. When I wasn't swooning or smiling I was laughing my ASS off. Jamie is hilarious and writes a solid RomCom.

I'm so bored!

NOTHING has happened. The hero has a crush on a "wholesome" dog trainer contestant (wholesome???) that he's seen on TV, and he convinces a producer that she can "fix" him in a new show. You see, people call him TheoDog for having been caught publicly peeing by the paparazzi.

Cringey plot but I really like this author so I gave it a try. However, all these characters have done is internal monologue and stare at each other. I'm sure there will be healing, sexual tension and

Undeniably entertaining

This heartfelt story makes me smile like a disturbed clown. I have happy tingles and am hearing Australian voice overs...

Theo has been a very bad boy. He knows it. We know it. The entire world knows it (minus some random, not so random, individuals without cable). He needs a break. He needs something to bring him out on top. Enter Hadley.

This romcom will have you eating treats out of the authors hand. Its sweet, sexy and down right swoony. From the wildly entertaining ina

Jamie Schlosser had me at, "I WANT HADLEY HOLIDAY." I'm not even kidding. That's the very first sentence in this amazing story and she hooked me good.

I simply could not get enough of Theodore Legend and Hadley Holiday. He's got a bad attitude and an even worse reputation. She's America's sweetheart. You would think they wouldn't work together, but they were the perfect match.

Theo is an absolute dream. Complete swoonworthy. I dare you to say the opposite! He just wants to be loved. Is that so bad

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book!!!

By the end of chapter one, Theo had stolen my heart. And I don’t want it back. By the end of chapter two, I wanted to be besties with Hadley and have sleepovers and braid each other’s hair. She is adorably quirky. And smart. And giving and loving. And knows what she wants and how she wants it.

Theo and Hadley are so friggin adorable and lovable and cute and sexy. I just wanted to keep reading ALL DAY. Sizzling chemistry from their first meet. He adored her, (okay

Untrainable is my first book by Jamie Schlosser and it definitely won’t be my last! The cover and blurb totally caught my eye and I’m happy to report Jamie is a new author on my must read list!!

Theodore Legend is the “bad boy” around town but little does everyone know exactly WHY he behaves the way he does. Looking for a way to refresh his image, Theo comes up with a last ditch effort and it all rests upon Hadley Holiday.

Hadley is a strong and determined woman who knows what she wants, and that

Theodor ( Theo-dog) Legend is used to all the necative attention his bad boy image normally gets but this time it’s different, a lot of alcohol and fire hydrant being in the wrong place at the wrong time has given him his new nickname of Theo-Dog ! The nickname is not his only problem Theo is broke he needs a hit reality show to take him back to the top so after seeing a show called The Final Showdown he has a brilliant idea why not take a dog trainer

Omg! Untrainable had me laughing so hard all while I was swooning! Theo has a bad rep, reality tv star gone crazy. Hadley is a sweet and innocent girl who placed third in a reality tv talent show. Theo fell in love with her while watching her compete and just had to have the girl. Hadley is upset she didn't win and needs money and a job soon. Theo concocts a brilliant new reality show that has Hadley helping his rep. Now at first I thought Theo would be a bad boy asshole, oh boy was I wrong. He ...more

4 Theo-Dog Stars!! What a funny and cute story.

This is a stand alone rom com about a dog trainer and misunderstood bad boy.

Hadley is a 22 year old dog trainer who just happened to catch the eye of 24 year old bad boy Theo Legend. Theo comes from a wealthy family and let’s say he is the “black sheep” of the family. These two hit it off from the very beginning. I love the banter.

I laughed my butt off at this book. I even teared up a bit. This book was well rounded and damn good. I think what

Untrainable by Jamie Schlosser a five-star read that will make you purr. What a fun read, ‘Theo-Dog’ Legend was so much fun to read, he was such a surprise to read as his first impression wasn’t a good one, but that’s what made the story so good and honest. He needs the TV show to show everyone how he can behave with some good treats like a good boy should.

Trying to articulate what I think of this book is almost impossible. How do I describe the emotional mess I am right now. My heart is SO FULL. Theo and Hadley are AMAZING characters. Both have a realness that kept me intrigued. What most would label as flaws were celebrated by Theo and Hadley. Ugh SO BEAUTIFUL! Yes you get the funny but plan to experience sadness as Theo personal story is revealed. I was so mad at the way he had been treated, I had to put my kindle down to collect myself. Hadley ...more

This book was my first by this author and it was super fun to read. Theo is tryin to redeem himself and he wants to use Hadley and her dog training to do that. There are so many funny moments and it makes you forget that Theo messed up to start with. He is all about protecting people though his reputation is not so great. Hadley is the perfect person for him and he really works hard to change. This book is light hearted and flows quickly.

Page turning humor and romance that resonated. I loved every page in this original story, full of food and dogs and redemption and transformation. Cleverly
Packed in to a hilarious story that kept me shushing all life around me, cause I couldn’t wait to see what happens next :)

I loved Theo’s tender ache for a real family. And how Hadley could spot his self-loathing from a mile away and loved out loud. She was so sweet but tenacious. And I can’t say enough about how much HUMOR and SWOONY steamy m

When I read the blurb for Untrainable, I was intrigued. Besides being about reality TV, it looked like a book that I would enjoy. I LOVED IT! This is the first book by Jamie Schlosser that I have read, but after being delighted in each page of Untrainable, I will be looking at her other books.

Theodore, man this guy, I couldn’t decide whether to like him, feel sorry for him or knock him upside the head. The poor guy was so lost in his life and bad decisions on his part made it even

Rom-Coms aren't usually my thing (I like my books dark and dirty), but there was something about this blurb that drew me. Maybe it was the mention of the talent show (I love America's Got Talent), maybe it was the redemption plot (who doesn't root for the underdog), or maybe it was the mention of pissing on a fire hydrant.

True to it's word Untrainable is a romantic comedy. I typically don't read romantic comedies because I feel that, mor
