This was a fun read, though felt a little rushed at the end. Dillon was serious about remaining a bachelor, despite his feelings for Paige. I never really figured out what his hesitation was about. It sure hurt Paige to be turned away. She was a feisty, stubborn, independent woman. Happily, everyone came to their senses!
If you ever lost faith in love, this story will bring it back.
When Dillon Sheenan moved back to Marietta to take care of his sick father and help on the ranch, he gave up everything. He gave up his life in Austin along with the company that he worked so hard to build. After weeks of negotiations, his company has finally convinced him to come back.
Paige Joffe moved to Marietta after losing her husband during a mountain climbing accident. She works hard as the owner of Main Street Diner and raising two kids on her own. When she lost her husband, it tested her faith. She wasn’t sure what she believed in anymore.
What started out as simple flirting between Paige and Dillon, while talking at Grey’s Saloon, brings them closer together. But Dillon insists he doesn’t want a relationship. He really doesn’t want one with a woman with kids. Kids are not in his plans. Women in Marietta tended to want to settle down. That was not in Dillon’s plans either. Plus, he’s leaving town in a few days. Maybe once he was back in Austin he could finally let the silly crush on Paige go. The night of the bachelor auction, Dillon drove Paige home. He really wanted to stay. But he fought the urge. He didn’t want to hurt her.
When Dillon left for Austin, Paige couldn’t get him out of her mind. How will she be able to change his mind and make him see they can have a future?
This is another one of those wonderfully written stories that you can’t get out of your head after you finish reading it.
There's something about a Jane Porter book that has me sneaking back to it through the day to read a few more pages when I really should be doing something else, and The Taming Of The Bachelor certainly had that effect on me. Set in picturesque Marietta Montana, this is the latest book in Jane's Sheenan family saga and tells the story of youngest brother Dillon and Paige Joffe, whom he's had a thing for since he first set eyes on her. Paige has always thought Dillon pretty darned cute too, but she's eight ears older than him and a widow with two children, which is a problem for them both. Paige thinks he's too young for her and Dillon thinks she's too good for him. He doesn't want marriage or a family because growing up in his own household has been darned tough. The trouble is that when they're together it just feels right for both of them, and when they're apart they're miserable. What more can I say? This is a great book. I couldn't put it down. Read it for yourself snd you'll see what I mean.
Sometimes, love is all about timing. Sometimes, timing gets in the way. In this story, Paige and Dillon must figure out if they can go the distance for love, ignore all the obstacles and excuses, and let love, and their hearts fulfill their destiny. It's a long road, and each must concede a little, but in the end, it's worth it. Love wins! A family is formed. And, that makes a fabulous romance!
This is a fabulous and well-written story of a slow burning love, kindled with grit and determination, flaring into the love of a lifetime!
I was provided a copy by the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion!
This was Dillon Sheehan's story, the youngest of the Sheehan boys. Dillon didn't want to be a father because of how his father was when he was growing up. He was afraid he would screw things up. Paige is a single mom, widowed, who owns the diner in Marietta. She and Dillon had known each other for years. They finally spend some time together and there are sparks. This was a great story. The whole book just tugged at my heartstrings. Paige is so sweet and Dillon is such a gentleman. The struggle between head and heart through the story made my heart ache. Wonderful story and I highly recommend it, along with the other Sheehan stories.
I've been waiting for Dillon Sheenan's story and was looking forward to reading The Taming of the Bachelor. I liked Paige and Dillon. The more I read, the more I wanted to see how their relationship was going to develop.
Porter delivers to her readers a sweet, enjoyable romance that will keep the Sheenans at the top of your favorite Marietta families.
