Mistakes-my life has been full of them. Time and time again, I've tried to change, tried to make the right choices, but it doesn't matter. I always screw up.
I hoped that Adam would be different, that he wouldn't be a mistake. Our relationship was supposed to be about sex and nothing more.
Fun, easy, simple-that was what we wanted.
But things are never simple, not for me.
Adam changed me. He made me the person I am today. I hate who I am and what I've become. I'm not proud of the things I've done.
I thought my greatest mistake would be falling in love with him.
I was wrong.
My greatest mistake is much, much worse.
I've lost control.
I have a secret I can't hide.
It's going to destroy everything.
My name is Amber, and this is my story.

Now I have read other books by K.A. Robinson and liked them. I had not read a Torn series book and was nervous because this is technically the fifth one in that series. K.A. Robinson did a really good job though explaining the other stories in a way that you don’t feel like you are missing anything with this one, but you still want to read them. This story really takes place throughout the other stories and I am guessing if you read the others first you have been waiting for this story for a while. Our main character Amber I liked. She was spunky. She isn’t the good girl. Adam was fun. I’m not sure I wouldn’t like the other guys better, but Adam was fine. He is very much the bad boy. He had a really interesting look which was different and I liked that. The flow of the story is a little choppy, but I know that’s because it takes place over a very long time. The book also wrapped up a little bit too nicely and quickly for me. I thought there would be more fight left at the end, but their wasn’t. I think I just didn’t like that it wrapped up too nicely. K.A. Robinson’s writing though was great as usual. The dialogue was very entertaining and I laughed at the banter between Amber and Adam several times. Good weekend read! 4/5 stars. Note: I received an ARC of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
K.A. Robinson is one of those authors for me that whenever she comes out with something I automatically have to read it. I don't even need to read the synopsis before I'm one-clicking it or adding it to my TBR. I simply know that it's going to be an amazing read. I read Torn a while back and I was a goner. Every other book after that was a must read. And she does it again. She does not disappoint. Amber and Adam's story had my emotions all over the place. One minute I'm swooning over Adam then BAM I f**king hate him and I'm internally wishing his d*ck falls off or some sh*t and then the next minute I'm a puddle of messy goo with damp panties all over again. I oh so love his dirty talking and his soft side he tries to hide. My heart broke for Amber. She just couldn't catch a break. Using sex as an outlet and determined to never fall in love. Well, that doesn't always work out the way its supposed to. There were definitely moments when I wanted to reach in and smack some sense into Amber. And then the moments where I just wanted to comfort her. Adam on the other hand was simply sexy. I wasn't expecting his story to be so sad. It makes sense as to why he was so anti-commitment. He got under my skin, snabbed my heart, broke it, crushed it and then put the pieces back together so perfectly. K.A. Robinson knows how to write a story, that's for sure. She captures your attention from the very beginning. I was so drawn in I could not put it down. I love these characters. I love this series. And I love this authors writing style. This is definitely a MUST read.
I will start by saying I freakin LOVE K.A. Robinson!! This was my first time reading her work and I honestly couldn't think of one thing I'd change! After finishing this I bought the rest of the Torn series AND Shattered Ties series! I plan on getting the rest as soon as my book buying restriction is lifted :-) I don't think words can describe how much this book made me feel! Tamed can be read as a standalone, however, I suggest starting from the begining of the series with Torn. I did NOT read the first ones, as I said this was my first of her books, but when I bought the others I realized it tells the story of the other characters in this book. BUT you will not miss a beat if you read Tamed first. One of the things I find awesome is that each characters story follows the same timeline but it's a whole other view on what's happening and someone else's life. It was so awesome how she tied them together but made them so different! That is how you know this really was her calling, simply breathtaking. Tamed will take you on one hell of a ride! Amber and Alex's story has so many twists and turns it will give you whiplash. Just when you think you have it figured out, she throws you another curve ball. I loved that it kept me on my toes and my anxiety high going page by page. This is a book you won't be able to put down! I read it all in one sitting and finished well before bed but I couldn't start anything else with the hangover from this one! So that's when I started my stalking on K.A.! Amber has her heart shattered just when she thought everything was perfect. College starts and she vows to never let another man have her heart. She has no problem until she meets Alex. What I loved most was that their relationship seemed genuine and believable. Obviously there is that instant attraction and she wants him like she never wanted anyone, but does not want to open her heart. Once she FINALLY gets on his radar things are pretty up and down while they figure out what they really are, and decide friends with benefits works for them both. There is a lot that goes on and some big drama with supporting chapters also, which make up the begining of this series. Alex and Amber are perfect together and I wanted to jump in and shake them. Even being apart for LONG periods doesn't break the bond they have, at least until Amber makes a mistake! I won't say anymore about the plot because I don't want to give it away. I wasn't sure how it would end because there is a lot that happens and some pretty big cuts in their hearts, but it was perfect. The writing was really good, you got details but not so over done that I was skimming over parts. You get to see these characters and develope how you feel about them and determine why they do things they do instead of being told. This is a must read and I am SOOOOOO excited to share this one with you guys! Thanks for a hearfelf and amazing story K.A., and I can't wait for more!! Rating: 5 stars
