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
TAMING JOHNNY was a highly anticipated read for me, and I was so happy to be able to read it early.  Johnny Street...Yes...Just the name gives you tingles...Johnny Street is a Jerk, an Asshole, a Prick, but he has his reasons, and he isn't making any excuses.  He doesn't need anyone, especially the voluptuous Clerk at the station, who gives him googly eyes, or so he makes it sound when he approaches her about her "Crush" on him.  I think I would have hit him, and I think Emma almost wants to. 
But then lucky for him, he actually has a softer side, well, we can call it the "Less Prickly" side, which causes him to fall victim to Emma's Web....Poor Emma, as she wanted to do was have a crush on her boss, and maybe have him like her back, but this Johnny "I say it like it is" Street, is a crush killer.
I found myself laughing at some parts where Johnny was able to get me as riled as he gets Emma, and then feeling like he just needed a really big hug, and maybe he would stop being an ass.  If you love a tortured hero, like I do, you will truly truly enjoy TAMING JOHNNY.  Kaylie Newell has yet to disappoint me, and I will continue to sit in anticipation for her next release!!
Enjoy and Happy Reading!
