Review of Tamed by the Troll (Perished Woods #1) by Tracy Lauren

Tamed by the Troll (Perished Woods #1) by Tracy Lauren

Review: Tried the sampler on a whim, loved it and needed to read more as soon as possible!

I had a lot of fun reading, liked that it was longer then some of the other romance e-books I’ve been reading.

Troll guy was sweet, the girl understandably angry for her situation and assumptions proven wrong. Now, her being proven wrong was fun. She was all sass and bitter, and he was like yup your wrong. I just want you to be a worker slave, doing small things I need help with. It was such fun to read their word battles, and endurance battles against each other. Their chemistry is a slow build up, but once it catches fire-it hard to see through all the smoldering looks between these two.

There is one part of the book that’s very sexual and not between the two  main characters, which is surprising and a little shocking as to why the story needed it as a pit stop for them. It didn’t add anything to the story, just a weird extra element that I’m not sure what to do with.

Pretty much the best thing was how they were able to solve their problems, get along, care for each other and not within the last few pages. I guess what I’m trying to say is their problems weren’t swept away for plot’s neatness.

Favorite quote:

Family is a funny thing. There’s the one your born with and the one you build. And both can be filled with so much joy and love.

Would I? Reread? Yes, I think so. Read more of this series? Yes, I’m excited to find out about more in this series. Read more from this author? I think so. Recommend to others? Yes.
