YAY...I finally got the chance to meet Wes!
Taming Wes by Melissa Ellen was my most anticipated book of the year and is the third book in Billingsley Series. The first book being Redeeming Lottie and the second book, Chasing Hannah. A romantic comedy, loveable, sweet, funny and easy to read.
Wes is Lottie's brother in law...He is a guy that everyone loves, especially the woman, but no one has his heart. Or so he makes us think. He is a great guy, hot cowboy, and a good friend, especially Hannah's best friend.
Devin is the new VET in town (I love her for that because I'm a vet too😛 ) Although they knew each other since they were kids, Wes didn't recognize her. She became a hot sexy woman, as Wes says "
" A natural beauty - dark raven colored hair, beautiful brown light eyes, a tight, petite figure, with just enough curves to grab on to, and full lips. I wanted to do dirty things with that mouth. The same mouth that was frowning at me now."
Wes and Devin are very attracted to each other, they both want something more, than be just friends, especially Wes, but Devin knows she couldn't do the friends with benefits shit.
Devin as a character captivated me from the start because she was so strong, very fierce, stubborn and independent woman. She was very straight from the beginning and very firm. Like Wes said :
"I lowered my beer as she spoke, a warning in her tone as her gaze sliced through me. As determined as she sounded, I could see the heat in her eyes. She wanted me, but she wasn’t going to make it easy. It was nice to know she held herself to a higher standard. Most of the women around here hardly ever made it a chase. That alone made her even more attractive to me than I’d already thought she was the moment my eyes found her. "
But...as strong as she was at the beginning...as soft she became. Wes was like an addiction. That's what I didn't like. I wanted more fight from her part. She was the first to be tamed.
Wes as a character was good. As I said in Chasing Hannah, I wanted him and Hannah together, but as BFF they are hilarious. Finally, Hannah admitted that they are BFF. He actually gave me some mixed feelings. I'm not going to say more about this, because I don't want to spoil the goodness.
Overall this was a great and hilarious book, actually, the whole series is just like that. Although I don't enjoy so much second chance romance, Redeeming Lottie remains my favorite book in this series.
I swear I want to move and live in Billingsley. I fell in love with that town and characters. I don't want it to end. Please...Pretty please!
By the way...The series has some great secondary characters and I really, really, REALLY hope that Ms. Melissa Ellen could bring their story to life in the near future, in this series or another. Characters like Roger, Leighton, and others. That's the author's credit. The books as so good and well written...that you as a reader, are just right there, in the book, in the middle of the action...friends with the characters.
So if you are looking for a good, hot, easy and hilarious read, this series is the one for you. My heart is broken right now...I hope this series never ends!
I highly recommend this Series! 💗
