Review: Taming The Lion Tamer
Taming The Lion Tamer by Caitlin Ricci
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a nicely crafted fantasy/wet dream. Yes it has a few brief moments of reality, but overall this story has all the hallmarks of a fairy tale. Quinn and Charlie both have some social issues.
That is until they find each other, then all bets are off.
Its a very fast paced case of instant-lust followed by instant-love story. This is not a reality story and shouldn't be mistaken for a realistic/contemporary romance. It's a contemporary fantasy and requires a suspension of belief to be fully enjoyed.
I generally am not one to read contemporary stories as I like the perfection of fantasy and this story has that component. If you are looking for a serious contemporary romance, this isn't the story for you. The love is too fast and the relationship too sweet. The characters don't necessarily overcome any obstacles or grow. If you're looking for a beautifully crafted contemporary fairy tale of love and romance, complete with a lion tamer and cream cheese frosting than this is the story for you.
