VBT: Review and Giveaway ~ Taming Johnny by Kaylie Newell
He's got the temperament of a lion, and she's just the one to tame him.
Police records clerk Emma Beaumont has always played it safe, never taking many risks. Quiet, shy, and a little overweight, she's convinced herself that she's comfortable with the way her life is. That is until she lays eyes on incredibly sexy Lieutenant Johnny Street. But she's never met anyone with such a terrible attitude. He's a jerk. Everyone thinks so.
Little by little, Emma is forced to uncover a stronger, spunkier part of herself, one that isn't afraid to stand up to him. As she gets to know him, she starts seeing glimpses of a very different man. A man who has known great heartache, and as it turns out, has good reason for embracing such bitterness. Behind his sharp tongue and harsh demeanor, lies a young man who's desperately afraid of losing what's left of himself.
As Emma's intense desire for Johnny turns to love, she will have to ask herself how far she'll go to chip away at his frosty heart. And at what cost.
Content Warning: contains sensual sex and strong language

While she’s written short stories her whole life, it wasn’t until after her kids were born that she decided to shoot for the moon and write her first romance novel. She hasn’t looked back since!

This book was endearing. Johnny was a jerk to keep people away but Emma saw through his charade and started chipping away at his layers.
Taming Johnny was a quick read but I enjoyed it quite a bit. It had a fair amount of steam and a "broken cop" who doesn't think he can be fixed.
These two were great together even if he did try to push her away.
If you like quick books with steam and emotion, you should read this one.
I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I liked it. :-)
