Taming Travis by Melanie Shawn Travis Briggs comes across as the ultimate player, but as his siblings start getting married, he realizes that that’s what he wants, too. But he’s dated every available woman in Wishing Well and isn’t sure where he can find “his girl”. Mia is in town putting together a reality show to pad her resume’. She’s ready to move onto bigger and better things. This show has to go off without a hitch so she can advance in life. The tiny problem is her ex-boyfriend is her boss and he and his very pregnant girlfriend are coming to Wishing Well for a week to oversee everything. Mia needs a pretend boyfriend. Enter Travis. Travis overhears Mia talking on the phone to her sister and offers to be her “pretend” boyfriend. Mia is gorgeous, so that’s no hardship. As they get to know each other, they realize there is a lot more behind those pretty faces. There’s chemistry. But Mia will be going off to LA and Travis is a Wishing Well farm boy. How can this possibly work?

A fun delve back into Wishing Well, Texas! I didn't get drawn in to Mia and Travis quite as much as I have his sibling's stories, but I enjoyed them none-the-less ... and it's always a pleasure to see the old characters again as their lives move forward. Looking forward to more to come! Mia James has come to Wishing Well to lead her first reality tv show! She's really excited and raring to go ... until she realizes her ex (who is also her boss) is coming to town to interfere in HER project. She desperately needs a distraction to draw some attention away from the past. Travis to the rescue! Heartthrob Travis Briggs has been breaking hearts all over town, but he knew one day he's find "the one" and the minute Mia walks into the room, he knows he's found her. He just has to convince her of that!

I love the Wishing Well Series. Another fantastic read. What started out as a joke over the phone between sisters quickly became reality for a smart beautiful woman named Mia. With luck, she was unware she had, Travis happen to be in the same room listening to her conversation. Travis is a sexy man who has always been an “up front with the ladies” kind of man. He was never looking for more than a little fun with a woman. That is until Mia. From the 1st time Travis laid eyes on Mia he has been hooked. So, overhearing her phone call with her sister, Travis thought now was his chance to get closer to the woman he has had on his mind. Form the start Mia has not been 100% sure of this plan of pretending Travis is her boyfriend. With the thought of her ex (also her boss) coming to town with his pregnant fiancé she is willing to go along with it. Neither Travis or Mia picture where this fake relationship was headed to, but with learning more and more about each other and the very sexual attraction they share they sure can’t pretend the fire isn’t burning between them. What starts out as a man helping a woman he is extremely attracted to becomes more life altering than either thought they would ever get. I highly recommend this book. It is such a good read and you will fall in love with Travis right from the beginning.

Another awesome addition to the amazing Wishing Well series... Melanie and Shawna never fail to deliver, with books you never want to put down.. Travis is one sexy cowboy, with a heart of gold.. When he sees something, or rather someone he wants, he won't stop till he gets her...

I laughed during Destiny's book, cried while reading Cara's story and fanned myself during Harmony's so I was so ready for Travis. Is started off strong, I actually covered my mouth because I giggle so much ( even though I was alone while reading it) but it seemed to loose a bit of steam mid way through and finished too quickly/abruptly. Not to say that this was not a good story, it was and Travis is a great romantic hero and Mia a wonderful partner, there just seemed to be something missing, I wanted more.

Amazing. That's all. Just simply amazing. Travis falls head over heels the second his eyes fall on Mia. Travis may have a history of serial dating, but he's a true romantic at heart and when he sets his sights on Mia, nothing is getting in the way; not even Mia. Mia is in town to direct and produce Colton's upcoming reality show "Claiming Colton." Her ex fiancé (and boss!) decides to make her life even more difficult by coming to town to "oversee" her first project--with his pregnant supermodel girlfriend, who he cheated on Mia with! Mia's sister "jokingly" suggests Mia hire a fake boyfriend and Travis overhears the entire conversation and offers his services. The rest is history in the making Absolutely loved this story!!

After a review of a Melanie Shawn book I was asked if I always get so emotionally charged as I review a book - my simple answer was "you obviously haven't read the author's books, or you would understand, they get the feels, girl!" And Travis and Mia definitely got all the feelings roaming and I am not even going to try to hold myself and my emotions in check here as I lay down the adoration I have for them. I love the fake relationship turning into a blistering hot romance type stories, and here you add the instant ardor Travis has for Mia. With the very first look at her, his life changes and he is willing to do anything to get to be near her, for to be part of her life, to have a future together. And it is so sweet and adorable. I swear I highlighted half the things Travis thought about Mia because it was so perfect. "Being with Mia felt like my soul found its home" "You're more than my better half, you're my whole. You're my everything" Travis is one of those good guys, like Mia said, nearly too perfect to be true. He is honest, kind, considerate, romantic, generous, sweet, and hot, and yes, he has played the field but never to break hearts. He was so charming, he had me from the very first moment and I just swooned after him ever since. Mia is the perfect life partner for Travis. She is a capable and independent woman, likes to take charge at work situations yet willing and able to make compromises in a relationship. She doesn't have much experience with men, her ex didn't treat her well, but she soon learns that she can trust Travis and his words and actions. I loved how the story has the focus on the developing relationship, with the small town as a backdrop, instead of the reality show. Also, the way Mia's ex is played in the plot was just a perfect amount of drama and conflict without going overboard or to be too distracting. The story is told in the first person point of view, and that took me by surprise. But since both Travis and Mia gets their chance to tell their view of the events, giving well-rounded picture to the reader, it worked in this story. Taming Travis is pure entertainment, it is fun and filled with good vibes and positive feelings. It had me smiling, laughing, swooning and sighing. The characters are charming, the banter and sibling rivalry a joy. The romance is instant yet has a strong hold of their hearts. The passion is off-the-charts hot yet has tenderness and sweetness you want to savor. I adore the Briggs family, the love, and care between the family members are palpable, and I can't wait to learn more about them in the future installments! ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

Travis Briggs is the Briggs sibling considered least likely to settle down. At least until Mia James walks into his brother's wedding reception. She's in town to work on her reality show and her ex and his new pregnant girlfriend will be arriving to "help" her. Travis overhears Mia on her phone with her sister saying she needs a fake boyfriend for the week they're in town. Travis volunteers his services in exchange for some massages to help him with a rotator cuff injury. As they progress through their "fake" relationship, they both start developing real feelings for each other. I loved this story and look forward to reading more about them in Colton's book.

Travis Biggs from Taming Travis by Melanie Shawn, the fourth book in their Wishing Well Texas series, has become my new book boyfriend. Mia James is in Wishing Well to begin production for the reality show Courting Colton. She takes Travis up on his offer to act as her fake boyfriend for a short while. Travis fell for her at first sight. He is such a romantic, caring boyfriend. While Mia might lack confidence and experience, she gives Travis a run for his money. I genuinely enjoyed reading Taming Travis and was pleased with the way Melanie Shawn found a way for Travis and Mia to find their true love and happy ever after. I enjoyed the way the authors wrote scenes to show the true gentleman Travis truly is. They also stressed the importance of family showing the closeness between Mia and her sister as well as Travis and his siblings. Although this book is part of a series, it is also be read as a stand-alone. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next story in the Wishing Well series, which I hope is Courting Colton. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Ok, so I am going to start sounding like a broken record whenever I read a book by Ms Shawn and especially her Wishing Well, TX series. I LOVED IT!!! She not only entertains us with the story, but she also gives us not only well developed main characters , but also the secondary characters are interesting. In this story we have Travis Briggs, another Briggs sibling, who is a handsome cowboy, truly a good guy and loved by all women. Mia James comes to Wishing Well as the lead producer in a reality show that will be filmed in town. This is her first “top gun” gig, and she wants to outdo herself. They meet at Travis’s brother’s wedding and sparks fly. She has no time for a relationship but when her ex is coming to town to supervise her work, Travis offers to be her “fake boyfriend”. Oh, boy, do things get complicated. It’s a story full of family, laughter and at times sad moments, sexy cowboys, romance and fun. Ms Shawn is a true storyteller who I will continue to follow. Can’t wait for the next book in the series. I was gifted this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Oh my!! Those Brigg's boys are fall fast and falling hard. I absolutely love Melanie Shawn's Wishing Well series. You will immediately fall in love with the town and the people who live there. Mia James is in town to shoot her TV show, her ex and his pregnant girlfriend will be there as well. Mia needs a "pretend boyfriend" while they are in town. Travis sees Mia at his brothers wedding and is instantly drawn to her. When he hears Mia mention a pretend boyfriend, he wants to know where he can sign up. During the week Mia's ex is in town Travis and Mia fall hard for each other. What another great addition to the Wishing Well series! I can't wait to see how the other Brigg's boys fall!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I just finished reading this story which is #4 in the series. I have read all the books and while its great to read each book, this one stands alone very nicely. Travis Briggs is the star of this book and I loved how each chapter starts with some saying from one his parents. Travis is at his brothers wedding when he falls in love within seconds. Them his mother makes him go to the cellar to get some glasses when he overhears a conversation between the girl he just fell for, Mia and her sister. Mia James is in charge of a reality tv show where she finds a wife for Colton. Apparently Colton was on a relaity show previously where he met Mia. He ended not getting a bride so Mia has convinced himto do a reality show in his hometown. She isin town working on the show but her and annoying boss decides to visit and HELP her out. Her sister suggests getting a fake boyfriend as a buffer with her ex. Thats when Travis decides to volunteer his services in the hope that Mia falls for him. Both Mia and Travis are fun, sweet and romantic. Tad, is the nasty ex and he is just annoying. The story was really enjoyable and I liked it. It has a nice country feel to it and everyone was really sweet and kind. It's very light reading and very charming.

Loved this extremely fun, sweetly entertaining, small town guy falls head over boots in love at first site with a city girl on the rise romance. I loved Travis Briggs from the beginning of this amazing series. He is sweet, funny and just oozes charm out of his every pour. Getting to know him and the way he sees things in this story was a very Delicious treat. Mia James is sassy and fun completely the perfect one for our much loved cowboy. Their journey was captivating with all the highs and lows of dealing with the past and trying to see if they could build a future. Loved it all, looking forward to the next visit to Wishing Well, TX.

Sweetest, most heartfelt romance you will read in 2017! Travis is a perpetual bachelor; he believes it’s because there are so many flavors out there it would be silly to settle for one. What Travis begins to realize is that maybe he hasn’t settled down yet because he simply has yet to meet that special someone. Mia has been burned by love and now she is ready to put herself and her career first. After landing an opportunity of a lifetime Mia is ready to give everything she has to making this opportunity pay off big time. The only problem is when Mia’s ex shows up Mia finds herself with a fake boyfriend who might just turn all hear carefully laid plans right on their head. I love Wishing Well so much! This is one of the best small town series, one I feel I will never tire of! Travis is the sweetest character I have read in a long time. He will melt your heart and the same time he burns up the pages. Mia is a girl you will be rooting to find her HEA from the very first sentence. Besides the super steamy and utterly romantic parts of this book my favorite part was that Travis helps Mia figure out what she truly wants out of life and she is the most surprised by her answer. It’s impossible not to love these two so much you will be reading until way past your bedtime. This book can be read as a standalone if you are just jumping into the Wishing Well series but I highly recommend that you go back and start from the beginning of the series. You won’t be disappointed!

I love going back and visiting Wishing Well! There's just something about that town and the people that make me feel like I never left! If you love insta-love reads, then this one is for you. Because Travis fell.....hook line and sinker the second he laid eyes on Mia. And it was swoon-worthy, let me tell ya! Mia needed a bit more convincing, but the girl had her reasons! This story was full of romance, fun, friendship, sexiness and love. I can't wait to get more and more from these people in this incredible town that Melanie Shawn has created! Great read!! Happy reading!

**Advanced copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review** Travis Briggs is attending his brother's wedding when one of the most beautiful women he's ever seen enters the reception. When he goes on a search for some glasses that his mother has requested, Travis comes across the blonde beauty where he happens to overhear a phone conversation she's having with her sister and he senses right away that she's in need of a save thanks to the suggestion of her sister - one that he'd be more than happy to help her out with. Mia James has come to Wishing Well to work on an upcoming television series that will be filming in town. She's excited as the show was her idea and this will be the first time she's at the helm. The bad news is, her ex-boyfriend, is also involved with the show and the last thing she wants is to be around him and the woman he left her for. Can Mia really do what her sister has suggested and find a fake boyfriend to show her ex that she's moved on? Especially when the man that has stepped up is the uber hot, Travis who has overheard the whole conversation? I loved how the story of Mia and Travis unfolded. Travis is not only good looking, but he's smart, loyal and he has a great sense of humor. He was always able to keep Mia laughing, which was something she needed and appreciated about him. Mia was a strong woman, and she knew she was better off without her ex, but it was fun to see how she reacted as her feelings for Travis continued to grow. There was chemistry between the two from the outset and I love how Travis' family fit in as well. Kudos to Melanie Shawn for another fantastic addition to this growing series. I always enjoy revisiting this quaint Texas town!

"Taming Travis" is written by Melanie Shawn, and it the 4th book in the Wishing Well, Texas series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Travis Briggs and Mia James. All the ladies in Wishing Well, TX want Travis. But no one has been able to catch his eye. Until Mia. This is really a story of love at first because right when Travis laid eyes on Mia, he knew she was the one. Mia is freaking out. She's in town to head her first reality show without the help of her ex-fiancé, Tad, but he finds out about the project and wants to get involved. Tad is now dating a model, who's pregnant with his child. Mia's sister, Libby, makes a suggestion. Get a fake boyfriend! Good thing Travis's mom wanted him to get some glasses for the wedding. He just happened to overhear Mia's conversation with her sister. She needs a fake boyfriend? Well, he's happy to oblige! It's the perfect way for him to introduce himself to Mia and for them to get to know each other! But what happens when their fake relationship starts to feel real? Will Mia stay in town after her reality show finishes filming, or will she leave for LA? This story was so fun to read, and Travis will make you swoon! He's such a romantic! Mia and Travis totally complimented each other and were the perfect couple! Looking forward to reading Colton's story next! Melanie and Shawna wrote another winner!
