*REVIEW* - Taming a Dark Heart by Terry Towers


Reviewer : Kaylene
Rating : 4 1/2 stars

This book starts out with Colin meeting Gabby at an animal rescue shelter.  Colin tries to drop off some kittens which appeared at his door because he has no time or heart for animals.   He soon becomes entangled in Gabby's life as she shows him how to care for the kittens he tried to drop off, plus she adds a slobbering bull dog into the mix as well.  The book started out funny, very funny, laugh out embarrassingly funny but about half way through the book took a darker turn.

The beginning of this book was very light hearted and the ending was good with the HEA we all expect but the middle was disturbing.   Some of it was a little cringe worthy at times and certainly not what I expected.  

I was always interested and it was a bit of a page-turner.  If there was anything I could really say I didn't enjoy was the fact that it ended so quickly.  There wasn't enough time to tidy everything up into a neat package.

I really enjoyed this book and gave it 4 1/2 star rating.

I was given this book to review by Magic Within the Pages. 

Colin Almond has a problem-or four-in the form of abandoned meowing kittens on his doorstep. When he tries to drop them off at the animal shelter he finds shelter worker, Gabriella Simons, is less than accommodating. She flat out refuses to take his annoying bundles of joy since, apparently, the shelter was full and he needs to man up and take responsibility for his kittens. (Her words, not his.) Colin isn't used to not getting what he wants and after meeting the feisty shelter worker he decides what he wants: her. Even if it means he becomes a pet owner in the process.

When Colin asks Gabriella out she’s hesitant – he’s way too smooth, way too cocky and way too sexy for his own good. He’s exactly the kind of man she tries to avoid. But... he also has an air of danger and excitement about him that’s impossible for her to resist. However, as their relationship develops Gabriella discovers that the Colin Almond she’s falling for isn't exactly who he says he is. He has deep, dark secrets and that darkness is threatening to destroy them both. 

Plus, there's the kittens...
