Review: How To Tame A Modern Rogue by Diana Holquist

how-to-tameFrom the back of the book:

Ally Giordano is at the end of her rope. Her beloved grandmother believes that she’s living in her favorite Regency romance novel and Ally doesn’t have the heart to set her straight. But even worse, Granny Donny is now convinced that she’s found the perfect “Duke” to rescue Ally from spinsterhood and she won’t rest until this modern-day rogue escorts them both to her country retreat.

Commitment-phobic Sam Carson is attracted to naughty, not nice. But one stolen kiss from Ally and he’s hell-bent on stripping away her good girl ways and teaching her the art of being bad. moves isn’t in the stars for this rake – he has no interest in being tamed by a woman, no matter how soft her skin or sharp her wit. But as the country beckons, Sam can’t resist the charms of Ally or her dotty Granny. Has this playboy met his match?

I loved the beginning of this book. I thought that the story had so much potential, but it just didn’t quite get where I thought it should. I felt like the story never went very far. Ally isn’t a fun person and she doesn’t take risks. Even when she is trying to help her Granny, she is always second guessing and not wanting to follow through. I found that very annoying. To me it didn’t seem like Ally and Sam had anything in common, and they didn’t really seem to have any chemistry together. Everyone, even Sam, seems to think they are perfect for each other from the very beginning. I just didn’t see it.

My other complaint is that the story didn’t really have a driving force. It just sort of meandered around. I did really like the side story about Mateo, to me that was the more interesting part.
