Taming Him is filled with laughter, sweet heart-warming moments, and plenty of steam! Let Kennedy Fox take you to the South for an adventure that'll surely leave your Kindles on fire! 

Alex Bishop is your typical cowboy.
Charming, sexy, and wears a panty-melting smirk.

Working on the ranch helped build his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He’s every girl’s wet fantasy and he knows it too. Alex doesn’t follow the rules of your typical playboy bachelor. After wining and dining his dates and giving them the best night of their lives, he always sends flowers and calls the next day—even if it’s to say, let’s just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all and his southern blood knows how to be a gentleman. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.

River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romantic bliss, she finds out he’s married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. Tired of cheaters and liars, she’s set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there’s an all-you-can-drink margarita bar, anyway? That’s what she tells herself until she bumps into the right guy who can make all those bad memories disappear.

Even if it’s only temporarily.

Two weeks on the beach is what they both need. No strings attached, no expectations, no broken hearts. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll change the entire course of their lives in just nine short months.

*A contemporary romance with a little Southern drama. This is book 1 in the Bishop Brothers series. Each book features a different brother and can be read as a complete standalone. HEA guaranteed!*
Not suitable for readers under 18 due to adult language and sexual content.


  • Disappointed

    By Fine pumpkin 511
    I started reading this book a couple of months ago and stopped reading it because it was very slow. I didn’t delete it because it was a Kennedy Fox book and I love their books. I just finished reading Roping The Cowboy and I loved everything about it so I decided to give Taming Him another chance. I was disappointed because my first impressions of it didn’t change. The book didn’t get better for me. For the majority of it was boring. I didn’t connect with the characters especially Alex and River. The Bishop brothers didn’t move me. Normally the sidekick best friend of the heroine is funny and outrageous but Natalie was boring too. The story wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t great. I am curious to read Hitching The Cowboy which is Riley’s story. Riley is Alex and Rivers’s son from this book. until next time y’all happy reading.

  • No substance

    By puttagie
    This book was way too long and drawn out. There was no real conflict in the story. If your looking for something with substance this is not it.

  • Sweet and charming romance!

    By Virna Thompson
    The writing duo known as Kennedy Fox have given us some great couples we have loved! This time they are giving us stories about sexy cowboys! Taming Him is the first book in their new Bishop Brothers series. What a start it was! Alex Bishop is quite the charmer. He is sexy, gorgeous and a gentleman. He may not do relationships, but he treats the women in his life with respect, even as he tells them let’s be friends. He has a strong foundation from his family and really was an overall great guy. River Lancaster thought she had met the man of her dreams, only to find out he is married. Brokenhearted, she heads off on a two-week vacation to put it behind her. This is about her and moving on. I loved River. She has been hurt in the past and does not trust easy, but she is also sweet, feisty and determined. Alex and River meet when they are both on vacation and feel an instant attraction. They decide to enjoy each other and have fun before walking away. What they did not expect was the need to see each other again. It was so much fun watching these two together! I do not want to spoil this, but they are so good together. I loved that they took their time. Taming Him was a nice surprise from this writing duo. It was a very sweet romance. And I absolutely loved the Bishop family. This book really set-up the foundation for the rest of the series. I am so excited to read about all the brothers. Read and reviewed for Reviews From The Heart. Happy reading!
  • Great story!

    I love me a good Kennedy Fox book but I was a little nervous to read Taming Him. Stories of cowboys usually don’t appeal to me but I’m happy to say, I’m a fan now! River and Alex both happen to be on a two week vacation in Key West. Alex and his friend Dylan, both cowboys, are taking a much needed break from the ranch where they both work. Alex, who is a nurse, her best friend Natalie and Natalie’s boyfriend, all travel to Key West together for some much needed R&R. River and Alex meet and sparks immediately fly. They both decide this vacation will be nothing more than a fun tryst and there will be no feelings involved, no exchanging information, nothing once the trip is over. Until the trip is over and everything changes. I really enjoyed everything about this book. How the relationship starts between Alex and River, what happens when they come together again and everything in between! The secondary characters in this book were fun as well and I loved that we got to see Drew & Courtney again! From the little snippet we get for the next book, I’m completely on board with this new series! Taming Him will make you feel every single emotion and the ending will leave you swooning!
  • Super cliche

    So dumb and predictable. The story got old and stale.
