✯Blog Tour Review w/Giveaway✯Tameless by Jess Gilmore

Title: Tameless
Author: Jess Gilmore
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2015

For most of my teen years, I lived under the same roof with Wes Proctor.

He was a surfer. He was cocky and popular. Guys wanted to be him, girls wanted to be with him.

There were times I was attracted to him, and times I hated him. Wes had a caring, protective side, but also a strong self-destructive one.

When he left our house at 18, it was sudden, like he vanished, and I never knew what became of him. My parents never said. They didn’t allow his name to be spoken in the house.

Now he’s back, we’re seven years older, and we’ve been thrown together once again by the most unlikely of circumstances.

There’s a lot of baggage. There’s a major trust issue. There’s secrecy. 

And there’s sex. Amazingly hot sex.

He’s mature now and on the right track. His loud cockiness has turned to a quiet confidence. But Wes still might have that dark side. I don’t know.

In the span of just a few weeks our lives will be changed forever. We’ll find out there was always more between us, an unspoken and irresistible desire that is reignited all these years later. But all of that will be tested when it becomes clear there was more to what made him leave all those years ago, and Wes wasn’t the one with the worst secrets.

 ✯✯4 Tame Stars!!✯✯

This is Jess Gilmore debut book. It was short, sweet and to the point. I honestly thought it was going to be hotter. Like, much hotter and it wasn't. I liked but wish there was more.

Wes and Dawn have known each other their whole lives. Then, when Wes parents died in an accident he moved in with Dawn and her family. Wes was always protective over Dawn. The older they got the more trouble Wes got into. Then, one day Dawn's parents threw Wes out and she never heard from him again. It devastated both of them.

Years later now that Wes has straightened himself out he heads back to his hometown. Wes and Dawn both end up at the same place at the same time. But, didn't recognize the other one. Few weeks later they come face to face.

Wes and Dawn start up their friendship again. It's like all those years hadn't passed. They still know almost everything about the other one. Except that both had feelings for each other when they were younger. Unfortunately Dawn is dating someone. It's not a perfect relationship either. They stay together out of convenience. It also keeps both their parents ESP Dawn's parents happy. But, Dawn is not happy by any means.

When Dawn gets an easy out in her relationship she takes it! Wes and Dawn admit their feelings for each other. These 2 were best of friends and spent all their time together until they were 18 when Wes got kicked out. Both of them were completely shocked to find out how the other one felt about each other.

Wes and Dawn start to get to know each other on a completely knew level. Yes, they may have thought about it but never expected it to become a reality. Things may have been perfect between them but there was a sever black cloud hanging over their heads. Dawn's parents are totally going to snap when they find out that Wes is back and in Dawn's life. With no intention of leaving this time. Dawn's aunt and parents insist he's bad news and no good for her. But, they refuse to tell her why.Neither Dawn or Wes insist on giving up until they both get the truth.

I literally read this book in less then 24hrs. Dawn and Wes had an excellent friendship which made it a perfect relationship. They were robbed of all those years apart. And, for nothing. I felt like it should of had more heat. I felt like the people and reason that kept Dawn and Wes apart should of gotten at least a smack on the wrist. I also wanted more of an ending. I felt like it just stopped. Hopefully, Jess will write more. But, all in all it was a great debut.

He sipped his beer and leaned forward, placing his arms on the table, looking very interested in what I was about to say.

“If you had asked me to guess who you’re dating now, his name wouldn’t have even dawned on me.”

I tilted my head and rolled my eyes. “Very funny.”

“Hey, I had to get at least one in there for old time’s sake.”

We were referring to him using the word “dawn” and how he used to tease me about it. When we were teenagers—fourteen, maybe—he would always try to work that word into a sentence. “Dawned on me.” “Darkest before the dawn.” Once, at the pool, he had a perfect opportunity to use “crack of dawn” when I got out of the pool quickly and the back of my bathing suit bottom slipped down slightly.

His favorite might have been “dusk til dawn” because sometimes he’d call me “Dusk” but never in front of anyone else. He used that one infrequently, saying there was a darker side to my good-girl personality. It annoyed me a little, but it grew on me, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t end up liking it. I was the good girl, never getting in trouble, and I think I wanted to believe there was a darker, more daring side to me. Wes somehow saw it back then, even though there was nothing between us. Now here he was, back after all these years, talking to me like he wanted to find out.
