Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: girl meets player, they fall in love, player changes his ways.

It’s a good story. But it’s not our story. Ours is a lot more colorful.

When I met Dee I knew right away that she was special. When she met me, she thought I was anything but special—I was exactly like every other guy who’d screwed her over and let her down. It took some time to convince her otherwise, but turns out I can make a convincing argument when sex is at stake.

You might know where this story’s headed. But the best part isn't where we ended up.

It’s how we got there.

TAMED goes back in time to the Tangled days. But this time around, it’s not Drew dishing out the advice and opinions—it’s his best friend Matthew, who of course is dealing with Dee Dee.

All I’ve known about Matthew Fisher is that he’s Drew’s best friend and he was seeing Dee Dee. I assumed he was a player given Drew’s history. He is somewhere in that zone but I contend that he was just waiting for “the one” after having been once burned.

 

Matthew is a lot more interesting than what I’d “assumed” about him. Shame on me. He’s a nice guy who likes a good time but he’s smart, talented and respectful of women.
When he meets Dee Dee, he sees her inner spirit and is drawn to her like the proverbial moth to flame. She’s the one skittish about any whiff of relationship so Matthew tries to keep it light until it becomes impossible to do.

If there’s any taming to be done, I think it was Matthew trying to lasso Dee Dee.

 

The narration was great as all of the others were. Deacon Lee managed to put a little smirk in his performance while keeping Matthew just plain likable. I loved his interpretation of the character.

 

I’m not only in serious like of this series but also in serious love with the narrators. They’ve nailed the men in the stories and made their journey from players to committed men a fun one. I enjoyed Matthew’s story and highly recommend the audiobook format, though the book will be entertaining no matter the format.
