Too Wild to Tame is the first book I have had the chance to read by Tessa Bailey. It was a quick read with an interesting plot and unique characters. I liked that the story itself took place in Iowa. It was cool to see my home state in a book.
Aaron Clarkson is good at his job. He knows how to get the right info flowing for the best press and who to get the info to. However his luck kind of stinks. He and his family are traveling across country to fulfill their mother's last wish. To say the Clarkson family clash with each other is probably putting it mildly but when the going gets tough the Clarksons stick together.
Aaron found himself in a relationship with someone he shouldn't have been at his last job. Now he wants to make a good impression on a senator in Iowa that is on the political rise. Aaron is sweet in his own way and protective of those he cares about. He has some emotional baggage that tends to tear him down at times.
Aaron meets Grace Pendleton the first night in town. Grace is the black sheep of the Pendleton family. Aaron and Grace are instantly attracted to each other and those sparks fly quickly. First there is the frustration and then the attraction mixed in. Oh my the fireworks are wild between these two.
Grace has been through a lot. My heart ached for this girl. She has been through the mill and her family doesn't seem to have figured out a way to help her.
Aaron's family really likes Grace right away. They take her in as one of their own and bond with her.
There is a lot going on in this story but I sure don't want to give to much away. I want you to enjoy the whole story line for yourself. There is drama, tension, family drama, touching family moments, of the hot romance, and secrets of the past, and the Senator that is trying to make his way to the top. All of that combined made for a real page turner of a story.
I haven't read the first book in this series. I didn't feel like I was missing out on pertinent information. I think this one stood on it's own just fine. I am anxious to read the next book to see what happens with Peggy (Aaron's sister).
I was given the opportunity to read this intriguing book and it has been my pleasure .
